Let me just say, these guys are Awesome!!! If you are like me, you don't typically trust mechanics. After dealing with these guys, that has changed. At least for this shop. We brought my wife's outback in for new struts. They gave me a quote to do the repairs, and when I went in they informed me they were able to get a better price than they thought on the parts and credited me a little over $200.00. WOW. Ive never even heard of that happening from a mechanic. We definitely found a place we will continue to bring our vehicles. Thanks to all the staff at Toole's Garage. I no longer feel like I'm driving down the street in "Uncle Bucks" car. Car feels new again, and the honesty and integrity you guys show in the work you do is extremely appreciated.

One of my least favorite things to do is take my car into the shop and be talked down to. Dreading the usual experience, I found Toole's Garage through an online coupon for a free brake inspection. To my surprise, Dave showed up and was really friendly, taking the time to explain what needed to be done to my car and allowing me to make decisions without any pressure. He answered all of my questions and was very transparent (opposed to being a "salesman"). Based solely on customer service and a sense of honesty I got from the staff, I'd definitely bring my car back to Toole's. I don't know much about cars, but I'm certain they took care of mine.

This is the only place I will ever take my car! As other reviewers have noted, the Toole family is extremely kind, conscientious and honest. They also seem to know everything about cars, right down to the little idiosyncrasies that have popped up in mine over the years. I cannot imagine going anywhere else. They are even nice to my kids!

Toole's Garage is the only team that I trust with my car. Most recently, they did a great job completing a timing belt replacement and brake service on my Acura TL. Always great working with Dave and Beau. And thank you Cisco for solving the clutch issue! I highly recommend these guys.

I have been going to Toole's for about 4 Years now and bring both a Honda and a Toyota to them for service. From day one, I have always felt comfortable with Dave and Beau for many reasons but the most important one for me is honesty. I have never felt pressured because I had to get something done or repaired and they both have always taken the time to answer all my questions and explain things to me. They are always professional and friendly. This makes a huge difference for me as a customer when there are so many options out there regarding mechanics. Thank you Toole's for taking care of our vehicles and being nice people!!

I work at an Infiniti dealership. But for my non-Infiniti cars, Toole's is where I get my work done. Honest, straightforward and quick. I just got my VW back and its running great. Thanks.

Toole's Garage has once again helped me in a tough spot. I had trouble with my air conditioner and was taking off on a trip at the end of the week. The team at Toole's took in my car and within a few hours had found the problem and fixed it. Thanks to everyone for their fast, top quality support. Had a complete check up at Toole's Garage. They are extremely detailed an complete in their work. My car is running perfect thanks to the professional team at Toole's. I always recommend this shop.

Well, although "hybrid repair" is a common occurrence in some locations, it still may be unusual to some. When you are trying to find a "hybrid repair center", look no further than your very own Toole's Garage. We are helping alternative fuel vehicle owners get the very best from their vehicles. Taking care of our customers from Redwood City to Palo Alto. And ranging north from Belmont to San Mateo. Give us a call today!  #electriccar   #hybrid   #awardwinning

Ever wonder how important shocks and struts are to your vehicle? Worn shocks and struts equal uncontrolled tire movement.  This can decrease vehicle control, wear other components and cause tire cupping.  Not to mention new shocks and struts give you a better ride!

Did you know that Dealerships are prohibited from denying any warranty repairs if they did not perform the maintenence? You have the right to use any shop!   #autorepair   #maintenance  #freedom

Why is there a pinkish red puddle in my parking spot? If you are asking yourself this question, you may have an automatic transmission fluid leak. The ATF is mostly red in color. Your best bet is to get your vehicle in for a check up to find out what may be leaking. Replacing a transmission is a major repair so make sure you keep your trans in great shape by checking your fluid at every service and doing a "transmission fluid change" at proper intervals. This small service will save you a large repairs in the long run. #transmissionrepair   #autorepair   #maintenance

Do you relate going to the mechanic with going to your dentist, painful?  We promise that you will get the best customer service you will find anywhere around at a very fair price. With our low cost rental cars and free shuttle service, we pride ourselves on our amazing customer experience.  We are truly a small family run local business, but don't let that fool you. Our small team is very efficient with room to grow. We look forward to meeting you, and showing you how an auto repair visit should feel. #mechanic  #local  #familyowned
