What People Say About Us


  • -David C.

    Needed an alternator replaced, and all the folks here really helped us out of a bind. Mechanic was transparent and honest throughout the entire process. Really made our day! Even included a free 2 year warranty on the part. We were able to get back on the road in under an hour and a half. Would definitely recommend.


  • -Steven O.

    Tim is the best mechanic in palm springs. He never lies and is a true friend.


  • -Mike W.

    If you have ever read my Yelp review you know how important Tim's services have been to me. As a single dad I counted on him to keep both my teenagers' cars running safe and sound, which he did. He is also the man I trust to work on my 04 F150 4X4 with 240k on it.


  • -Drew R.

    Tim is the man...We have 4 family cars and he is always affordable, and he stands behind his work. Timely and efficient. I will recommend this shop to all of my friends and family.


  • -A. W.

    I love this place! I was headed out of town and needed my oil changed on short notice. They let me come in last minute, and I was out in less than an hour. Normally when I get my oil changed at Good Year it takes least 2 hours. These guys are friendly, easy to talk to, and I'd recommend this shop to anyone!!


  • -Devin C.

    I went there for a couple of things to have done on my car. They gave me the best deal around and with great service. They helped us with every question we asked them. They were very nice to my wife and me. We are definitely going back.
