Customer Testimonials

  • Your shuttle service was really helpful in taking me to get to work and getting picked up when it was done. Great service.John C.
  • I was worried about the strange sounds my car was making, but after having it repaired by your company it is back to running smoothly and it didn’t even cost that much! Your technicians are very helpful and friendly and explained everything in a way that I could understand. I will be recommending your services to friends. Thanks Auto-Metrics!Paul M.
  • Your shop is clean & professional. Thanks for the great job. I was kept updated throughout the repair process. No surprises! I’ll tell my friends.Kate T.
  • When I was up in Chico 4 years ago for my nieces wedding, my alternator went out and I was towed to Auto Metrics, where they did the repair, and on the receipt it was written that there was a “lifetime guarantee on the part only”. Just a month ago, I was down in S.F. when the alternator went out and was replaced by a shop down there. When I arrived home I called Jeff at Auto Metrics and he made all of the arrangements with the manufacturer to honor the warranty. I received a check for the full purchase price that I had paid for the alternator 4 years ago. Shirley M.
  • Thank you so much for your kind services. It’s great to be able to leave the car there for services when I am out o f town and trust your work integrity. I am grateful. I’ll keep in touch as needed. Sincerely.Paula H.
  • Thank you so much for your work on my Mustang. It runs excellent.Debra
