The office team and the owner couldn't be easier to work with. Their team shoots straight: letting you know if something "needs" to be done ASAP, or can wait until your budget allows. Mechanics; well they're mechanics: valued for their expertise, not their charm. That said, the mechanic for my most recent service was in danger of breaking that stereotype. Bud Adams was recommended to me 11 years ago and I'm comfortable recommending them now.

time around for service on my Hybrid Escape. I usually work on my own vehicles as I have done so for the past 35 years. Having problems with the electric power steering and run through my own trouble shooting process I cam to a point where I needed someone with a bit more experience. BAAR came up with the same diagnosis that I had. Based on the apparent mileage they tried to advise against proceeding any further. As there was no other recourse but to start replacing parts with known good parts in hopes of resolving the problem. This was something that I had already known and after discussing the options with the staff decided to proceed with the first part replacement.Long story short All is good with the steering, 800 and change vs a potential 2300+.My opinion is they appear knowledgeable, personable and service oriented. While looking out for the best interest of their customer.I will continue to use their services when I find I do not have the facilities at home or when I do not have the time to conduct my own repairs.Just like the old days going down to the old corner garage.Wait they are the garage on the corner.Knowing what my answer would be they kindly reminded me of some service that may be due soon knowing that I would be likely to do it myself instead of trying to up sell the repairs.great place to go two thumbs up.

For the last several years, I have driven over an hour to Castro Valley to Bud Adams Auto Repair for all my major services - oil changes, new tires, smog check, and 30k-60k maintenance services. Bill says on his radio show every week that he will "tell it to you straight...." He does. I went last week for a 90k Service and again they got it done in the time needed and were VERY Accommodating! They have saved me a lot of money over the last few years.

call around to a few places trying to find a repair shop that would deal with my Prius. I wanted a second opinion since my dealership wanted to charge me an arm and a leg to repair a few things. They did a thorough inspection of my car the next day and found that the repairs weren't needed. They saved me around $800. Thank you so much. I will definitely come back here.

This was my first experience and it was a very good one. The lady who greeted me was very sweet and soon I was able to go off to my hike at Lake Chabot to relax. She had me fill out some paper work and off I went. She called me very shortly to tell me that my car was ready but come when your hike is done. No stress..got back late because I didn't think they would be done so soon..she says no problem! The price was great and my car runs great and then they gave me a referral to have some body work done. He was sweet reasonable and did a fabulous work also! Thanks I am a happy girl! Cheryl

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.
