Great customer service. The workers in the front desk are extremely nice. The mechanics came to me and showed me issues I had with my car in detail. Got an Oil change, new air filter, etc. Plus, they did an inspection on my ENTIRE car FREE. They even gave me a list of a couple of things I would need to replace in the near future. Very knowledgeable staff/workers. Extremely helpful. Best place I've EVER taken a car for anything. Easy 5 stars and HIGHLY recommended! A+ 5***** WILL RETURN AGAIN!

Trustlane Automotive had rebuilt my transmission, replaced a pair of brakes, rotors, as well as the radiator all in a couple of days! Their quick work and warranty on all the parts gave me the confidence to drive right off the lot, knowing that my car and I will be just fine. Also, the customer service is fantastic! There was always someone on the line when I called during business hours. And when I picked up my car from the shop, someone had the courtesy to show me the worn-down parts were actually replaced.

I had a wonderful experience here!! I highly recommend if you need auto repair and/or maintenance services! Just saw them driving by one day and noticed the Smog Check sign. I had been having issues with my catalytic converter sensor so I hesitated. They were able to complete the required testing, and even walked me through the process. As they finished up, they recommended a few auto maintenance items I’d been putting off. I was very impressed with how friendly and respectful the staff is and how they didn’t try to up sell me on things I didn’t need!!! Highly recommend and I’ll be back!!!
