A warning light came on in my Prius, so I took it in here. Shawn was friendly and accommodating right away, and said he could take a look. After a little while he found that the problem was my hybrid battery, which didn't have much life left. He gave me his card and told me to call to set up a time to have them install a new or used one. I called him, met up the next day to get a quote and order the battery, then brought the car in today, and it's all done! Shawn was so kind and knowledgeable (he used to work at a Toyota shop ,so I would highly recommend him to Prius owners) and it's impressive how much these guys seem to get done every day. Very pleased with my experience here and will definitely be going back next time I have car troubles.
I was on a business trip in this city. my mastna broke down at the most inappropriate time and I urgently needed to solve the problem. The Danville Auto Center was able to quickly find the problem and send it. Thanks a lot for your help. You are wonderful!
Shawn is hands down the best mechanic. He's very honest with the work that needs to be done with your vehicle. I never feel like I'm on pins and needles waiting for the call wondering how much work or how much it will cost for my car to be running safe because of his honesty. I feel his prices are very fair and I never feel like I have to look around for a better deal. Shawn has even done some tweaks to my car that he didn't charge me for. Currently the whole family takes their car to him and I plan on having it that way for a long, long time. His expertise is with European cars but my son has a Chevrolet so he's worked on American cars as well. Shawn has done simple oil changes, to changing timing belts, maintenance services, tire rotations and dashboard sensors that malfunction. He's even replaced my radio! He can do absolutely everything. He's a one-man show so I'd recommend making an appointment with him if you can.
Found Shawn on Yelp and so glad I did. I was looking at a car to buy in the Danville area and wanted to have a pre purchase inspection done. Shawn was able to get me in that day. He did a very thorough inspection, explained things well, and saved me some money on the car purchase.
I've been going to Sean since he first opened. He has worked on 5 cars in my family. He is very honest and a very good mechanic. I feel fortunate to have a mechanic I can trust. I highly recommend Sean for simple oil changes, brake pads etc. to the most complex problems your car might have. He's a good guy.
Second time visit to the shop, and still an amazing service from Shawn! My alternator quit on me in the middle of the night so that I had to tow my car to the garage the same night without appointment. The next morning, Shawn was so understanding and took care of the car right away and got it done the same day and at a very reasonable cost. It's been three weeks now and the car runs perfectly without any problem. Shawn is a real lifesaver, I tip my hat to him!
Shawn is fantastic! I brought my RAV4 into Shawn's to have a bearing replaced. Communications were quick, informative and easy. I was able to make a Saturday appointment and my car was ready in only a few hours. The car drives like new now and Shawn's prices were less than half of what I was being quoted elsewhere. Overall a highly positive experience and I will bring my other cars to him from now on. Thank you!
Shawn has been looking after our family's 4 cars for the past 4+ years. I couldn't be more happy w/ the quality and value of his service and most of all his honesty. I've recommended him to several of my close friends and colleagues at work, and they've all thanked me after they've experienced having their cars serviced there.
Shawn is a fair, honest mechanic that you can totally trust. I recommend him to all of my friends.
I took my Mercedes for an oil change this morning. Shawn was prompt and completed the service within an hour. I placed my initial inquiry on his website, and within a day received a call back. Shawn is professional and friendly. I will definitely be returning here for future auto services.
Fantastic place! Can't say enough good things about Shawn and his mechanically skills and customer service. Great place. Nice and clean gas station too.
If you are looking for the elusive "honest mechanic" look no further!!! I can't say enough good things about Shawn and Danville Auto Center. He's become our family mechanic and a great relief to us on several car emergencies. With two daughters who seem to have car problems every time they drive home from school in Oregon, he's been fast, effective and reasonable every single time. Even working until very late on a Saturday night to get our daughter back to school the next day. My 2004 Saab (which I was regularly paying $110.00 for an oil change with my previous "Saab authorized" mechanic) did it in half the time for nearly half the cost! No matter how many cars seem to be stacked up at the shop, he always manages to make mine a priority. Perhaps I'm just not used to a mechanic with such excellent skills and great customer service. I've recommended Shawn to several people and would trust him with any car for myself and my family.
I am not a car person. I can't do much when it comes to fixing anything that goes wrong. My car wouldn't start this morning then it came back to life later in the day. I took my car to Shawn and he diagnosed and fixed my problem in no time. Highly recommend!
