3000+ Happy Customers

Needed to start taking better care of my car so due to Yelp and my friend's reco, I took it here. I don't really speak car but Justin helped me every step of the way. He was patient and informative in explaining what they found, what I needed to get done, and how long it would take. They even helped me get a rental car since they kept it overnight to get all the work done. I had a great experience here and am excited I found a new place to take my car.
My wife and I are impressed with the very high level of courtesy and obvious commitment to customer service. My car's needed repairs were thoroughly explained to me and I never felt pressured. A plus Japanese repairs is our first choice.
I was very impressed with the service u received at A+ I don"t usually being my cars to independents fir my service needs, but when my car broke down on the wrong side of the bridge, where was I to go? Luckily for me, and my faithful auto, I find Justin Mills and A+ Automotive! I was treated with courtesy and professionalism from the moment they picked up the phone. The entire staff acted as if I was a long time valued customer ... what a change from my experiences at other shops. And on top of all that, the speed at which they repaired my severely broken car far exceeded my expextations. I would highly recommend A+ for your service and repair needs. And when you call, ask for Justin. He won't steer you wrong!

We've been working with Justin since we bought this most recent car and he has been so great and helpful! I totally trust him and he has only proven himself again and again. He's taken such good care of us and kept my son's car humming. We're only bringing our cars here from now on. I honestly love these guys, but Justin in particular is fantastic!
