Honest, good prices, nice guys. Went in to get warped roters repaired, and the service was speedy and well priced compared to the 2 or 3 other places I called.

Went there for an oil change. Fast and friendly. Sketchy neighborhood. Overall a decent experience.

I go here regularly to change the oil on my car. I usually drop by around 10-11AM and have never waited more than 25 minutes for them to finish the job, which is reasonable for such a simple job. I guess the trick is to get there when its not crowded.Price is reasonable and the service is adequate, but I havent used them for any repairs so my experience is limited, but from what I know so far I would probably go there to fix my clutch for instance if I need to.

You know who drives the crap out of their vehicles? Who goes up and down SF hills, stopping and starting and starting and stopping, all day long? Nooooooooooo, not cab drivers! They drive someone else's car so they could care less about the car they're driving. The people who drive the crap out of their OWN vehicles are DOG WALKERS! Yep, they put thousands of really nasty, start leave home and stop pick up Dog 1, start leave Dog 1's house and stop pick up Dog 2, etc. miles on their vehicles. Oh, and for most of them, their vehicles are their livelihood. So, do you think dog walkers would take their vehicles to a mechanic who was expensive, dishonest or lacking mechanical knowledge? I don't. That's why, when the most recent mechanic to whom I'd been taking my lovely Jeep turned out to be an ass, I asked Joe the Dog Walker for a referral.B & W was Joe's referral all my dog walker friends go here, he said and so far I'm happy. I drive an older about 15 years old Jeep. They've replaced the transmission when the old one finally died after another mechanic quoted me something like 2x the price, changed the oil numerous times I could do it but then I'd get DIRTY --- and not in a good way, fixed a few minor things that were bugging me, and most recently put in a new catalytic converter at my request --- the old one was rattling like the Ghost of Christmas Past.Here's how the most recent visit went: 7:22 a.m. I bring the Jeep to B & W. I speak with Wayne about what I want done oil change, check obnoxiously LOUD catalytic converter, fix squeaky belts, general once over bc I'm going on a looooong road trip. Wayne writes everything down and gives me a preliminary quote. 10:15, Wayne calls to tell me that I was correct and the catalytic converter does need to be replaced. I ask for the cost and lo and behold, it's the same as what he'd quoted earlier. 12:01, Wayne calls to let me know that the Jeep is ready to rock 'n' roll. I'm wondering if he included tax, so I ask him for the final cost again. Unbelievably, it's exactly the same as it's been from the beginning. 5:04, I arrive at B&W, pay for the repairs and the cost - still the same and drive away with my Jeep, which now sounds and runs MUCH better.

I've been very happy with these guys. I recently had quite a bit of work done here and it was half the price I was quoted at the dealer. They take the time to explain what they are going to do and then do it quickly. They also call and ask before doing anything big once they start the work.After they did the work on my car there was an oil leak. I brought the car back and they fixed it free of charge that day. I've turned a few wrenches so I don't fault them for having a leak and it was great to get a no-hassles correction.I'm only giving 4 stars because if you pick your car up in the morning they park it on the street and I know someday I'll get a ding from that.

I've been trusting my old Acura with the Mufarreh brothers for 5 years now, and they've been nothing but wonderful. Some of my indicators of a good mechanic:- they've come below their estimates for repairs several times, and were clear in explaining why- none of their repairs have yet needed to be re-repaired- when I've asked them to check some funny noise, my brake pads, etc, they usually come back with we checked it - it's fine - no charge when they could have fleeced me- they've referred me to other good people e.g. Rich's Auto Body for bumper replacement and painting - also awesome- best of all, as a woman I never ever feel sketched out, stared at, taken advantage of when I go there. Usually there are other women hanging out, waiting for their cars too. yeah.Bill and Wayne, you rock. Keep it up.

It's true. All the reviews posted here are accurate. This is my first experience using yelp! Everyone said that you had to get there by 7, but I call around 9:40 to get my brakes fixed, and the guy told me to bring it on in. I got there at 10. By the time I walked home I live 1 mile away they had called me to tell me what was wrong with my brakes and what needed to be done. The front just needed new pads and the back needed pads, rotars, and calipers...$820 and less than 3 hours later I picked up my car. The speed of service and genuinely nice guys made the $820 worth it. Although it sucked that is was $820 I felt completely comfortable when walking in. They treated me like a human and not a walking checkbook. I even had a conversation with the guy about http:yelp.com. Apparantly, they get tons of business from this site! I'm going back to them next month when I have money again since that drained my pocketbook..I don't really have a pocketbook for more work. My mazda miata will love me for it..

I found these guys on Yelp very good recommendation, y'all. They didn't make me feel like an idiot or leer at me silently when I walked in. Further, they were great about following up and fixed my car for considerably less than the dealer would have charged.

why do i feel guilty for making a mechanic justify his estimate? i dunno, old fashioned gentility, maybe, or Bay Area fear of appearing judgemental?anyways, the thing that really gets me about Bill & Wayne is that i have never felt rushed. i have never felt like i was imposing on them when i asked for an explanation or to hear other options. they've never tried to overwhelm me with mechanic double-speak, or asked me to just trust them.just today, they faxed me an estimate for $2200 worth of work. they called me again when they didn't hear from me right away, and then they let me come down and had a guy show me each and every one of the things that they proposed to do - on my very car. i then talked to Bill for 20 minutes more about well, what if this and that and the other. he passed up several opportunities to upsell me more work or more expensive parts, and explained why he thought that the most expensive item on the list was probably not immediately necessary.what the heck more could you possiblty ask for?
