I have been back to Bud's several times since last July when I first had my car serviced there. Some issues were simple - changing a tail light bulb (which they took care of on the spot, and btw, didn't charge me!) to routine servicing and battery replacement (the cheaper of the two Prius batteries - whew!). I have had only excellent service and prompt service from them. The office staff and mechanical staff are friendly, knowledgeable and competent. Prices are competitive. When asked about my car mechanic, I very readily recommend Bud's.

I took my car to Bud Adams after my old shop tried twice to fix my power steering leak but they were unable to. The staff is friendly, thy identified the problem, fixed it and it hasn't leaked since. I have since had my brakes done, air-conditioning recharged and electric seat fixed. Every time they fixed it fine with no problems. Their prices are fair (not cheap, not going to gouge you). They deliver when promised.

Bill and Becky are great at Bud Adams. We've been taking our Haonda CRV and Toyota Matrix there for years, but unexpectedly had to replace the clutch in one of the cars in April of 2013. They were so friendly, honest and practical about it that I didn't mind so much handing over the credit card for payment. The clutch would have needed to have been replaced anyway and better the work be done at a repair shop I trust- Bud Adams.

I had a flat tire on a truck I was borrowing and had no way to get the spare on. I pulled into their drive way and they promptly ran out and switched it for me at no charge. I think I will have to check these guys out when I need some work done on my car.

Nick, Thanks for the great review. Looking forward to serving you in the future. Glad we were able to be of service to you when you needed the spare tire changed.

I have been taking my 2005 Prius to the Toyota dealer in Berkeley since purchasing it because I didn't know of any reliable mechanic shops that serviced Priuses. I was in an auto body shop in CV that was working on a Prius and they referred me to Bud Adams. I called and asked their price for the needed service. The receptionist was clearly looking up what the service was for the car's mileage. Their price was slightly lower than Toyota's. I gave them a try. They actually had time that day, completed the service in a few hours time. I was sorry to read about the negative experiences and from my own experience found them hard to believe. Would have been good to read some feedback on those reviews from Bud's. I will definitely go back for the next service. They were nice, reliable, and price was slightly better than the dealer.

Rebecca, Thank you for your great review. We appreciate you and your business. Looking forward to serving you at your next maintenance interval at our auto repair and service shop in Castro Valley, CA. PS we were happy to help out with the tail light bulb and battery replacement!

Reliable and honest. Expect to pay retail and also expect to hear about everything wrong with your car that they can find (which is what you want a good mechanic to do). But no shenanigans. They just fix it fast and do a good job.

I had the best experience I could have imagined when I finally had to take one of my vehicles to a repair shop. I've been a mechanic in the military for 16 years and only lack some specialty equipment in order to have my own repair shop at home. I simply could not figure out what was wrong with my Blazer and I just had surgery so climbing around to do my normal troubleshooting was out of the question. I finally relented and took my vehicle to the closest shop to my house; they were recommended to me by the muffler shop I had used recently. The entire staff were both courteous and helpful. Their lead mechanic listened to me and really seemed to give a damn. They kept my vehicle for the next two days; the afternoon of the second day I got a phone call and my truck was fixed. The mechanic said that since he had not checked with me before installing the needed part that he would be happy to remove it and allow me to save some money by doing the work myself. Since the part wasn't outrageously overpriced and the labor was next to nothing coupled with the terrific experience I was having I let them leave the part where it was and picked up my Blazer a couple hours later. It was and is running great. If I ever need another diagnosis while I'm living in the bay area I know where I'll be going.

Angele, Thank you so much for sharing your experience with us at Bud Adams Auto Repair. We strive to go the extra mile for our customers and were happy to repair your Blazer!

This is my repair shop. Bud is there on occasion when he wants to get his hands dirty. His son Bill now owns the small fleet of repair shops. I have been coming here for years (before Bud's retirement). I called it my "little old lady" shop because I had always been worried that I would be conned. When I first went there, Bud showed me up front, what normal costs should be to do a specific repair. I compared the price to other places... and this place was my winner. Right now I have pretty brand new cars... but I'll be going to Bud's for the repairs when the time comes (cross my fingers that they don't)...

Irene, thank you so much for sharing your experience with us at Bud Adams Auto Repair. We are so glad we have been able to be your auto repair shop all these years. We appreciate patrons such as yourself. We look forward to seeing you again at Bud Adam's Auto Repair shop again sometime!
