Such integrity. We took Honda Civic in for issues and Mike diagnosed that it needed a new hybrid battery. Cost $3,000. We gulped and said yes. He called Honda to order the part and learned it was under warranty and recommended we get it replaced for free at dealer instead of spending $3,000 with him. Many shops would have just sold us the battery.

I recently took my 2001 Acura tl to Automotive Excellence to fix a few things before selling the car. My regular mechanic couldn't find the problem, or maybe didn't want to. These very courteous, excellent Mechanics found the problems and fixed everything for me. It wasn't real expensive and the car ran great after that. I sold it to the first ones who came to look at it.

I am so grateful to Automotive Excellence! I just picked them from the Internet because they had great customer reviews, and are Diamond Certified.

Also, the Office Staff is very welcoming, professional, and courteous!

They have a very clean and organized shop and office, and that makes me think right away that this business is efficient.

My experience with automotive excellence was nothing short of excellent! I had a problem with my 2011 Hyundai Sonata that no one could figure out and as soon as i brought it in they figured it out and fixed my problem ASAP. Mike the service manager was amazing, Kevin my technician was great and made sure i understood everything they did to my vehicle. I will definitely be using them again for all my future services! Thank you again!

We have brought in 2 of our cars now to get done by them and each time we know things will get done right the first time or they will make sure it is if you bring it back. They are very professional. A little expensive but you know you are getting it done correctly.

I have not been a long time customer because I always took my truck to the dealership. (bad, I know) The first time I took my truck here it was for something very expensive no matter how we looked at it. They did it right the first time!!! That's such an awesome rating for an auto mechanic! These guys acted like my truck was part of my family - an actually it is. I have not needed to go back, although I do need to for my oil change! Thanks for fixing my truck right the first time, guys! It's more than I could say for the Toyota dealerships . . .!!!

Fast service, reasonable prices and personable. Took the time to explain things. Didn't try to sell me things I didn't need. Would highly recommend.

We recently moved to Sonoma county and, after six years of frustrating dealer servicing of my Land Cruiser in San Francisco, I was determined to find an alternative to dealerships. And what a find! From booking an appointment to bringing it in and picking it back up, the experience was flawless: Knowledgeable front office, thorough explanations, phone updates on any concerns and on the progress of work, and no pressure for unnecessary work. The charges were fair, less than I expected, and far less than a dealership. They have quickly earned my confidence and loyalty. Finally, when I picked up the car, a surprise: it was washed--no small feat, since it was covered in red Arizona mud.

I took my 2015 Hyundai Elantra to Automotive Excellence for a tune-up. The service was excellent. They were professional and reasonably priced. Thanks for the great job.

Automotive excellence does it again! They’re service is beyond excellent! Always quick at finding the problem, and they are so good at providing customers with all the details of what they find. They even went above and beyond to search for a recall on my car. My second time using them and i will continue to do so as my first choice! Thank you again.

I've always been a do it yourself kind of guy but when my pickup came across a problem that I couldn't resolve, I contacted A.E. spoke briefly about the problems I was encountering, was met with a good respectable attitude, so I felt comfortable using them. They quickly addressed the issue and fixed it in a prompt manner. Thank you Jon and crew at automotive excellence, I will be a return customer if the problems arise for both my truck and my wives car.

Excellent service and price. They communicated clearly and professionally with me about what was going on with my Nissan altima. I will recommend them to anyone experiencing vehicle problems.

I was looking for a local good and honest car mechanic. I had several people recommend Automotive Excellence to me! So, I thought I'd give it a try. Automotive Excellence did not disappoint! Very friendly staff and great service! I will be back! :)

Take it here. I know they're specialist on certain vehicle brands, but I took my Subaru here along with my Lexus. Honest upfront people. They'll tell you what you need to hear not what's going to make them another buck. I did the whole calling around and shopping for prices but there are some things in life where you need to just pay a little more because it can cost more later. I've learned the hard way. They're cheaper than the dealer for sure, but again I'm a believer that you get what you pay for and their services are right there if not better.

There's nothing better than feeling safe when you drive your car. Automotive Excellence gives you that confidence. Jon, at the front desk, is knowledgeable and courteous; best person to have at the front desk! The mechanics, Dave and Kevin, are excellent! I have two Hondas and have been going to Rohnert Park for their service since 2009. They offer a loaner car or a ride, if you need them. They are totally reliable, honest, and reasonable. I highly recommend them.

We did a lot of research to find a new auto service shop. We are very happy to have find Automotive Excellence in Rohnert Park. We were welcomed in and given a complete estimate on what was needed and it was complete explained.


We were called about two additional services that needed attention and were given a fair and honest price for those services along with the everything else.


I am very happy to have a beautifully running vehicle. I was also VERY APPRECIATIVE of my car being cleaned, inside & out! It was a VERY NICE surprise! We are looking forward to a great relationship with Automotive Excellence with all our vehicles.

I had a CEL light on that needed a coolant thermostat replaced to pass a smog test. Having my own OBDII scanner and error code results and possible fixes, Mike didn't charge me to reread and clear the codes. Just to make sure I drove the car and get the same error codes back for further diagnostics. I understand I can only read the codes but an in depth look under the hood that's out of my hands. While other shops would charge you just for that I'm glad he didn't and my scanner didn't turned out to be a paper weight.


Long story short Mike and his crew were professional, proactive and communicative in the before and after repair process. Mike was honest with the situation in diagnosing the car and trained mechanic opinion to replace the thermostat. Kylie followed through options of service pick up after the repairs were done. They delivered quality service with integrity to match. I recommend this shop and would be coming here for future car repair needs. Make sure to check their FB page as well for updates.

The owner, Dave, is a good guy. He's been repairing our cars (including my 1973 AMC Gremlin!) for years. I can't say enough good things about the staff and the facility itself. If you're looking for an honest mechanic, consider Automotive Excellence.

Took my Scion Xb here because it was overheating. They took the time to talk to me before I came in. Most places just want to make the appointment and get you in the door. These guys (Dave) tried to understand the issue before I came in. Once I arrived he thought they'd get it diagnosed in a 1/2 hour but asked for an hour authorization incase it could be fixed in that hour, they could just do it. They ended up fixing the same day in less than an hour and I was charged accordingly. Their customer service and follow-up service checking to see that the car was fixed is outstanding. I definitely would refer anyone here without hesitation.

I couldn't be any happier with my recent visit here. Got a new pair of brakes and rotors for my Lexus IS 250. I didn't mention anything about my brakes having a harsh squeak sound when I would reverse or press on it. After picking up my car that problem was gone! Before my visit I asked Lexus dealer plenty of time how to fix this problem and they said it's a common noise that happens cause my car is a F sport model and is high performance. Now I don't have to deal with the squeak and no longer embarrassed from it being so damn loud!

Thank you Mike and his awesome crew. Great customer service. And I really appreciate the emails with details when I wouldn't have service at work. Thank you!

My first visit was a transmission service on 10/5/19. Patrick, my shuttle driver was super nice, and polite. I'm newer to RP, and after my first visit I knew this is my shop. Owners are friendly, and engaging in conversation, and I was treated as if I'd been a long term customer. The service is excellent, the pricing terrific. Easy to find, lots of parking.
