About 2 years ago my son's 1997 Accord needed a new clutch installed and some minor but necessary maintenance work done. I contacted various auto repair shops. After speaking directly with the owner Don made a decision to give Tri-Valley Automotive. And I'm happy that I did! Since that time I have had Tri-Valley Automotive work on my wife's Volvo, my daughter's Camaro, and my pick-up truck. Regarding the Volvo, the car needed a set of brakes, new shocks and some other more minor work. Based on the great experience I had with the Accord and a very fair repair estimate, I decided to useTri-Valley. The result was good work delivered on-time. Regarding the Camaro, a local dealership diagnosed an overheating problem as a blown head gasket problem and they wanted just under $2,000 to solve. I got a second opinion from Tri-Valley which diagnosed the problem as something entirely different. Bottom line is that Tri-Valley solved the problem for under about $500. My daughter has since driven the car to Texas where it runs flawless. When my fuel pump went out on my truck I knew exactly where I was going to take it. Here too, Tri-Valley's estimate was better than others I had called (about $300 better) and the work was done competently and on-time. I now take my cars to Tri-Valley for routine maintenance. I love this place! I love this place!
