Tri-Valley Automotive is a great place to take your car for repairs and service. The prices are the best around and the level of service is above and beyond. I would recommend them highly.

Thanks so much for the review! I really appreciate all the kind, good words. I am happy you had a good experience.

Very competitive pricing, various repairs have always been properly completed & ready when promised. No hard sell on extra services.

I've never been more comfortable bringing in my car for service. The most honest car shop I've ever been to. They will never try to over sell you on something you don't need, and Don will explain everything in terms that you understand. Definitely a 5 star shop!

I have been a customer of Tri-Valley Clutch and they are true to their word. That is a hard thing to find these days. I took my auto in for some repairs which were needed before I was to leave on an out of state trip. They were on time, very reasonable cost for repairs performed and will return when needed for their services. I would reccommend them to my grandmother they are that good.CameronPleasanton, CA

I must say I had fast, excellent experience with this company, and I would recommend it. I came from out of town 3 hrs to be exactly and upon arriving to my destination, and trying to put the car in reverse to pull into the parking stall i realized their was a serious problem with my car. It wouldn't go into reverse smoothly like it normally would. And I have an automatic so it wasn't about me putting it in the correct gear. I decided to not worry about it until the next morning since it was really late in the evening and their wasn't any natural light and i was going to be up here for 2 more days, and nothing is open on a Saturday or Sunday usually. The next morning I went to check my car, and found a trail of fluid running from underneath my car into the middle of the street. Immediately the hood was opened, and and engine fluids were checked. Oil...check...okay. Radiator fluid...check...okay. Windshield wiper....check.....oh that is right it has had a crack in it for many years now, and I never put anything in it. Transmission....check................................... bone dry, that is where the puddle beside my car originated from. Just great, I am hundreds of miles from my mechanic I am very particular on who works on my car since I have had it for so long, and it is my transmission that is causing the issue, which makes sense since I had a hard time moving when I had put it in reverse. Tried patching it for now by filling it with transmission fluid until I could decide where to take it, and because it was a Sunday and nothing is open until the following day. It was suggested to me to look on http:yelp.com to find a place to work on my '94 Mustang, so i created an account Monday morning and began browsing yelp trying to find a company close by to take my car to because it was an emergency, and I wasn't familiar with the city of Dublin and I wasn't going to just take my car for some serious work to just any automotive mechanic shop, so I needed to do some research before hand. I read many reviews on several places, and decide to go with them. I didn't have a phone readily available and I thought I would try my luck and email them to get an appointment asap. Two seconds after sending the email, I received a response back to go ahead and bring in my car. I drove my car down there, praying that it was going to make it and it did. I had an idea as to what the problem with my car could of been before taking it down there because of talking to my boyfriends father on Sunday over the phone he too lived 3 hrs away from where I was stranded and he is a mechanic and owns his own automotive repair business. I spoke to Don at Tri Valley and he was friendly, personable, and knew what he was talking about when it came to cars. I was informed the car would be done by the end of the day Monday, unfortunately it wasn't done until mid afternoon the following day Tuesday. I needed the car to be done as soon as it could since I was missing more work than had planned due to the emergency. I had a 30 point vehicle inspection done, changed engine oil and filter, replaced both U-joints, replaced gasket and seal on transmission tail shaft housing. I think the cost for the work was excellent, and I didn't have the car back as originally thought, but i was impressed with the quick response to email, and friendliness of staff.

My clutch became very difficult to depress, to the point where it bothered my ankle and since my car has about 140K miles I thought it may be time for a new clutch. I called several shops and Tri-Valley Clutch provided me one of the more reasonable quotes, plus the shop is close to where I live. Well, after the diagnostic, Don, the shop's owner, informed me that the clutch seemed to be fine, that it was the clutch cable that was bad, which is a significantly lower cost repair. I thought that showed an extremely honest business practice as he could have easily told me my clutch needed replacement and I would have believed it given the high mileage of my car.They did a great job, replaced the clutch cable and gave my car a much needed tune up.A few weeks later Tri-Valley Clutch replaced my starter expediently and with no issues. I recommend them based on my two pleasant experiences knock on wood that I won't need to visit them again soon though!

My first expirience with TRI VALLEY was when I had my old 1993 Honda Civic. My Story:I had my whole transmission, clutch and flywheel replaced at a shop down in San Jose. When all the work was done my shifter was sitting in a slightly forward stance which was odd to me so I took it back to San Jose and they had no idea what was wrong with it and gave me some bullhit excuse on how thats how its supposed to be with the new transmission. Not happy, I decided to take my car locally to DON at TRI-VALLEY to see if they had any idea of what was going on. Trust me, these guys know what their doing. One look under the car he noticed my transmission bar was upside down. Within 15 min, DON had reversed the tranny bar and my shifter sat exactly how a normal shifter sits. So I had my car back in a very short amount of time and with a simple fix DON had given me a very, very reasonable price. EVER SINCE THEN I WILL NOT GO ANYWHERE ELSE.Now, I have a 2003 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution, a very complex car to work on. I took my car to DON to get my clutch and flywheel replaced on this car and he gave me a VERY reasonable quote that was close to all the competition in the east bay area. Don has a couple modded cars that he personally worked on and that was reassuring to me. I had brought my own performance parts to get installed and since I know that he does HONEST work, I had no problems knowing that the job will get done right. I've had my car back now for over a month and Im happy to say that I have not had any problems with my car and it is performing better than ever!!! Thanks DON and thanks to all the staff at TRI-VALLEY CLUTCH.

These Guy's Rock. Fast Service, Use Brand Name Parts, Extremely Affordable and Competitive. My Story: I Have a 96' Saturn SL2 4dr. Brought it to the Dealer for Clutch replacement. Estimate was over 3 Grand plus hidden fees. These guys came in at about one third of the cost. Plus they threw in nice warranty and did some other work that the dealer wanted another Grand for. LOL. They also are next door to a place called Minute Muffler who recommended me to Tri Valley Clutch They also did work for me on my 98 Acura CL. Also 13rd the cost of dealer and Fast and the workmanship was awesome. Minute Muffler comes from a referral from neighbor who wrenches on cars all the time.
