Testimonials

  • Perfect service. All three vehicles were serviced professionally, including some mechanical work on steering mechanism (Buick Riviera) and water pump (Chevy Silverado pick-up). Communications with Atherton Automotive are exceedingly articulate and clearly easy to understand. I heartily recommend Atherton Automotive for your auto maintenance and service needs.
    -Dr. J. Christensen

  • Great communication here at Atherton. Even though I know very little about cars Matt Jr. seemed to value my input about my truck's symptoms and took down a thorough history of my truck before actually working on it. I also liked how the shop explained WHY I needed things done, instead of just telling me "you need to do this." The quality of service was very good and I'll definitely be back in the future.
    -P. Schauwecker

  • Not only excellent technical work but a safe and friendly environment to visit while your car is being serviced for an oil change, etc.
    -J. Bixler
