Long story short: Higher prices than competition and customer service is very poor. If I voluntarily pay more, I expect better service, not worse service than a Pep Boys. After experience problems with quality of work at initial service (which included a promised call-back that never happened), Singh did not attempt to resolve or even look at the problem despite safety concern (device installed by Natomas Automotive fell out from under dashboard and got stuck behind brake and gas pedal on multiple occasions) until I voiced my concern more strongly. I was asked to return the next day with a vehicle that was unsafe to operate and which is also my only vehicle. Singh also said that he did not have time to have my problem looked at that day until I again voiced my concern more strongly. He also did not open up a repair order for my car until I specifically requested it, despite a technician working on my car while I waited and despite this being a violation of state law and California BAR policy. After leaving my vehicle with the shop again the next day, Singh called me to pick the car up after not finding any problems, despite multiple problems being duplicated in front of Singh and one of the technicians the previous day. Singh referred me to the equipment provider who then ordered replacement equipment for my car without me even asking for it. At this point, Natomas Automotive (specifically Singh) has not displayed any sense of interest in building new customer relationships or resolving issues with current customers. I knowingly paid more to have my original work performed at Natomas Automotive because the shop is in my neighborhood, but now I would not even want to bring my car in for a simple oil change, nevermind anything more complicated. I am confused by Singh's attitude and reticence, as customer experience is generally regarded the most important factor in today's automotive repair and maintenance industry. Without positive customer experiences there can be no customer retention. As a goodwill customer who knowingly paid more to support a local business, I'm very frustrated and disappointed.

This is a very trust worthy auto shop. I had to have repairs done on my escalade today and when they called me to inform me that my SUV was complete the owner Singh offered to drive my vehicle to my home so I would not have to look for a ride or walk to the shop. Now that is outstanding service! Thank you!

I had my first experience today with a smog check today. The shop was neat and clean. I came 20" earlier than my appointment time, but was out in less than 30 minutes. I see their sign everytime I leave the house since they are less than a mile away. There is another sign for another automotive shop close by in the same business area, but I saw that the yelp reviews were higher with Natomas Automotive. Because of my positive experience, I will be taking my other vehicle in for an oil & filter change tomorrow. It's nice to have a shop close by. I am loyal to my regular mechanic in the Greenhaven/Pocket are that I've had for over 20 years, but it's a grind to drop the car off there (because of the distance from my new home) and they are so busy (because they are so good and honest). However, for minor things I am perfectly willing to bring my car here if the service remains as good as it seems. I expect it will given the other positive yelp reviews.

I recently brought in a car to Natomas Automotive and had some work done on it. The shop was clean, the staff was courteous, and the rates were reasonable. They replaced a housing in the cooling system because it had cracked and was leaking, causing the engine to overheat. Before I dropped the car off at Natomas Automotive I was able to drive it the 6 miles from my house to the shop without significant overheating . When I picked up the vehicle and drove it home, it almost blew up as the water pump had stopped working. Maybe the water pump breaking was a coincidence I don't know. I should have been advised that the cooling system in the car was damaged worse after their repair, and that it should be considered inoperable. I would have used my triple AAA card and had it towed home at that point. See, the vehicle has an old head gasket issue, now because of the extreme overheating and pressure build up in the cooling system, the benign head gasket issue is much much worse. I took my car to Satnam Singh for a very simple repair job and he could not handle it. That is my opinion, my observation and my experience. So just a warning, things might not be what they seem at Natomas Automotive, and maybe my experience was an aberration, like always caveat emptor: BUYER BEWARE!

Thank you Natomas Automotive for the great service! My car broke down on the way back from Tahoe. I called AAA and they said their was a repair shop nearby that was part of the AAA network. That was good enough for me, and I was there a few minutes after the tow truck driver arrived. Singh and John were fantastic. They replaced the broken belt, and had me back on the road the same afternoon. The cost was reasonable, and I even got a AAA discount.

Over priced, went there to get a timing belt replaced. They wanted to charge me 2600 bucks. Went to another shop 1300 bucks. It took the shop 3 days to get back to me and when he did he told me they have to tear the engine apart and charge me another 100 dollars. So I was being charged twice to find the problem? That's not including the 2600 dollars to fix what needed fixing. The owner is a criminal, stick to a shop you know.
