“My husband and I have been bringing our cars to Extra Care for 20 years. Our service has always been excellent--always fair, honest and reasonably priced. We bring our cars to Extra Care for all our cars' needs--even just oil changes. We live about 25 minutes away from the shop, but the drive is absolutely worth it. I highly recommend Extra Care to anyone who wants a mechanic who will always give you the best service--and is very honest. A prize!”
“Jeep overheated, blew o ut all the coolant. Called Extra Care and had it towed there. Jim took the keys and called later after inspecting everything ,told me what needed done,gave me an estimate and had it all done ready to go the next day. What great people and great service, hard to find good honest people, but they are.”
“I took my car in the have the brakes checked because Midas said I needed new brakes. After a brake inspection Larry told me - my brakes were fine. Hello - honest! Love that. Larry looked over my car (per my request) and I was able to get my timing belt changed and new tires all done in two days. They were honest, fast, nice and flexible with my timing needs. I highly recommend this shop.”
“As usual, great service and work done in a timely manner.”
“It is always a relief working with those at Extra Care. Curtious and helpful, you can always trust they will do their best. It is wonderful to have an honest mechanic! How rare is that!”
“As always, the folks at Extra Care were thorough, professional and efficient. The work is done on time, detailed explanations provided and the car was ready to go early.”
“Larry and crew and my car's best friends. They can give you religion about mechanics where faith was lost. They are efficient, effective, and always helpful. I first showed up at the shop a year and a half ago unable to diagnose (3 mechanics) a rough ride in my Honda Fit. Turned out to be bearings, less expensive with Extra Care than anyone else and after repair ran great! I've turned out to be a little more aggressive in my driving than expected and just had to replace my front brakes... bad habits... but Larry looked after the Fit again and I'll be heading back for my regular servicing when it's time. Extra Care respects my bottom line but doesn't skimp on paying attention to details. Thanks for the great service!”
“I have always found the owner to be very honest and fair sometimes too honest. As a woman, it is sometimes hard to find a mechanic you trust, and I have never felt uncomfortable at Xtra Care. Mike, the owner, goes above and beyond.”
“Mike & Bob are great! I took a 95 Dodge Neon in to diagnose a noise and an electrical problem. While they couldn't get the car to make the noise, they figured out the electrical issues and then reduced my bill because they couldn't find the other problem! All the guys are great, as a woman who is wary of mechanics I would highly recommend them for their honesty and care in explaining repairs.”
“I've been very satisfied with the these folks care for both my car and truck. They tell me what is wrong, what my options are and were able to help me figure out what could wait and what was urgent. I totally trust these guys and will go out of my way to stay a client.”
“real people there to help...love this place, I will recommend them to all my friends”
“Great service!! Honest people!! They have done a great job with our cars. We wouldn't go anywhere else!!”
“Great place. Been coming here for years. They treat me like a friend, not just a customer. I trust Mike and Larry.”
“Honest service: they diagnose and fix only what is needed for repair or service.”
“ These are honest guys doing good work. We bring all of our family cars to this shop because of the quality care and honest prices. Would highly recommend them to others. The shop is also very convenient as it is close to the San Bruno Caltrain station and about a 10 minutes walk to the nearby BART station as well.”
“As others have said, it can be very difficult to find a car mechanic that is reliable and trust-worthy; especially if you are not that confident in your own automotive knowledge. Originally I met Mike when I bought my 2001 Mustang from him. There were a couple of minor issues with the car which he was happy to fix for me for free after I bought it (to be honest there was no real obligation for him to do so). I had just moved to the Bay Area, and was concerned about finding a good mechanic, so I decided to start using Mike for all my servicing needs. I did this even though it's actually a bit of a hassle for me getting my car there (I live in SF - but the guys are always happy to pick me up or drop me off at the BART). Eventually I decided to use them for servicing m wife's 2003 Subaru as well. So for the past 3+ years Mike and Larry and the rest of the guys have continued to give me great service. They have never encouraged me to get things done that aren't really needed - and are happy to discuss options - pros/cons - and keep costs down for me where-ever it makes sense, and is not likely to either effect safety or create long-term problems. Highly recommended.”
“Extra Care Auto Repair has kept my car at its best. I appreciate their honesty and feel like I have paid very fair prices for tune ups. Larry is clear and will explain repairs in a way that makes sense so that one can make appropriate choices. Well, next is the timing belt for me and maybe water pump and I trust that I will get the best service again. Thanks!”
“EVERYONE, this is your 1 stop shop for good, reliable work! I take all of my vehicles here from my wife's corolla to my 95' twin turbo supra. Larry and his staff are the real deal. I have had NO problems with any of my vehicles since i began bringing them here for a few years now, & i rest assured because the parts (including labor) have been warrantied for an extended period of time. (Different parts & applications will vary, inquire within.) The bottom line is, HONEST & RELIABLE WORK doesn't cost you an arm and a leg at Extra Care-their prices are extremely reasonable! BEFORE you take your car ANYWHERE else, take your car to Extra Care for a secondary opinion...You'll be GLAD you did!”
“Larry called me to discuss the review that I gave and said he did not think it was fair for me to give them three stars when the delay was caused an issue with getting the part from Melody Toyota (the local dealership). In fairness to him, the repair was well done and we have had no problems in the six months since the repair was completed. At the time, it was frustrating to have the repair delayed like it was, and considering my ignorance of how Toyota repair part distribution works, I am inclined to give Extra Care the benefit of the doubt.”
“I'm only not giving him 5 stars because the work I had was minor. BUT...Larry is a straightshooter. He could have rung me up on a simple problem for close to $500, but instead he said, 'Lets try the 8 dollar fix first, and if that doesn't solve it, then we'll explore other options.'That alone had me convinced. One of the shops around the corner quoted me close to $150 for what Larry did for $45 in 3 minutes. He can fix boats, cars, bikes, you name it, and as someone who has traveled the world and met all kinds of people, I know he's an honest guy. For me, that's what counts most when getting my car fixed.”
“The Extra Care shop did a great job with our Sienna and my Dad's Camry. Everything was fixed and no issues whatsoever after the repair. We also received a lottery scratch ticket after paying for the repairs; a nice way to throw the dice and earn back the money spent on repairs. All in all, a great shop.”
