Susanna M. on 12/13/2013:
"The first time I came here, it seemed as if my car had been cleaned as well as serviced. This time there was no mistaking it -- in addition to performing the service, the car was definitely cleaned and vacuumed -- a hugely appreciated "bonus." It did mean that we had to wait an additional ten minutes past the original estimate time, but it was worth it."

They even fixed something that was under their warranty that I didn't even know was not working right. They could have just let it go and I would never have known the difference.

Nana from Richmond on 2/7/2012:
"My 2003 Toyota is in good hands. My dealership recommended a new hybrid battery to get me up and running, and through their normal course of finding out what's what, Marty's located the issue and it cost me $9.10 to fix the problem. In stark contrast to the 3K or so Toyota wanted to do something I don't need (yet). Also located a bulletin on this issue, so I'm submitting a significant portion of my bill for a refund (sigh!) thank you Todd."

Tiffany/glenc from Albany on 1/31/2012:
"Many of us are feeling financially stretched right now. We recently had to have the 60,000 mile maintenance on our minivan. I would have forgotten to do this, but we got a handy reminder email from Marty's. A 60K service is usually pretty expensive, but Todd used a variety of coupons to get our cost down, including advising us to join the Car Care Club, which got us a bunch of discounts. He saved us appx. $150.00, which is a great deal of money to us right now. Also, Tom took my young son and me back and forth to our house. We love Marty's!"

Catherined from Berkeley on 1/18/2012:
"They drove me home, explained everything in detail, gave me a box of cookies, and sent me off with my paperwork in a brand new folder. I was very pleased."

Thanks to Marty's I have now found my mechanic. Todd was great the entire day. The communication is straight forward and there are not any hidden fees or "extra" work done/suggested.
Thanks Marty's!!!"

Hollyn from El Cerrito on 1/13/2012:
"Always good work. My only problem with Marty's Motor's is that I would rather have been notified how much it costs to have, say, the windshield-wiper fluid squirters adjusted. I would have opted out for these small things had I known what you were going to charge for this, and other routine items."

Janiner from Ukiah on 1/3/2012:
"I drive 100 miles to Marty's Shop for my vehicle servicing. I completely trust that whatever work the shop does is the work my car needs. The invoices are very clear and concise and include work that needs to be done. The entire staff is highly trained and skilled. If you are searching for a shop you can trust, look no further ~ Marty's Motor's is the one!"
