What Our Customers Say
Excellent service from Bill and Chris. Most honest and capable mechanics I have ever worked with.
David M.Lafayette, CA
Bill, the owner of California Star, took the time to walk me through the services that I needed immediately, within six months, and for the longer-term future on my 2004-model car. He and his coworker Chris kindly offered to drop me off at/pick me up from BART, but the location is so convenient it wasn’t necessary. I really appreciated their friendly and frank manner, not to mention the first-time customer discount! I also liked that the service was done well within the timeframe he specified which isn’t always the case with other repair shops. Will definitely continue to use Bill and California Star in the future.

Hard to believe it in this day and age, but this is an honest shop. I know a lot about cars but don’t have the tools or space to do much, but I never let on to that fact, and I wait to see if the garage is trying to fleece me. These guys are as honest as the day is long. I have had a couple Mercs, and they don’t play games. Great shop. 5 stars.

I took my 2010 BMW 528 here a few weeks ago and was very impressed. Their estimate was very fair, they shuttled me between their shop and BART, and the work was very good. My warranty ran out and I was looking for an alternative to the BMW dealer. Glad I found one that work for me.
