Livermore Auto Repair

Where does a "car guy" go to get advice? I've tackled quite a few automotive repairs everything from engine removal and installs, clutch jobs, timing belt changes and even rebuilding motorcycle engines. But lately I just don't have the time to do the repairs myself. I'm that guy that doesn't want anyone else touching his stuff. But I trust my cars in these guys hands.Recently I thought my car had a blown head gasket. I went to a couple shops in town to get an estimate for the repair. Jay at Machado's gave me a quote but then asked a couple questions inquiring why I thought I had a blown head gasket. I told him the symptoms I noticed. He poked his head in the shop and grabbed one of the techs. and then told me to drive my car in the garage right then so they could take a quick look. This was AWESOME because my schedule doesn't offer lots of flexibility so it really helped out being able to have my car looked at right then while I waited. They ran some tests and looked around. Well turned out my head gasket wasn't blown! The tech. explained to me everything he did and even answered more of the other questions I had.....I always have tons of questions =). Thanks Machado's I'll be back and I'll keep telling my friends about your service and expertise.

Machado's is outstanding! We have trusted all of our cars/trucks to Machado's! They found a problem with one of our cars that was under warranty and took care of it with the local dealership. Every oil change, tire rotation, anything we our cars, we trust Machados. They know the car care business! Best shop in the valley!

Would not trust my 2010 Camaro to any other shop. My last oil change at Jiffy lube I find out that left my air filter cover off and windshield wiper fluid empty. 100% honest and reliable. Best shop in the valley.

I can't believe no one has reviewed Machado's before. I have been taking my Toyota there since 2006 and have never once been disappointed. As a woman unfamiliar with all that happens under the hood, I have been ripped off time and time again at other car repair shops--paying top dollar for services I'm sure I didn't need. Since coming to Machado's, not only have I been charged a fair price for ONLY the required services, but on two separate occasions have not been charged at all after bringing the car in with the "check engine" light on. Tom and his crew have run diagnostics and found minor hoses unscrewed or the gas cap not on tightly and returned the car to me without fee. Not only that, another time they found a nail in my tire so they drove my car to the nearby Big-O, where the nail was removed and the tire was repaired--at no charge. The work that has been done on my car has been top quality, and their customer service is outstanding. I recommend Machado's with no reservations and will never take my car anywhere else.
