I have been taking my car to Chuck's place for many years. I started with him when the shop was on Petaluma Blvd. I feel very comfortable with Chuck and Chris. They explain everything that needs repairing in plan english. They only do repairs that are needed. There isn't any other mechanic that I trust as much as Chris and Chuck. I highly recommend Empire Automotive for routine maintence needs and unexpected car troubles. They are professional, dependable, reliable, friendly, afforable and honest. Do try to make an appoinment with them. They are the best, won't feel stupid or ripped off. They will get the work done in a timely fashion. And it will be done right. As long as there is Empire Automotive around, they will always have my business. They are stand up people and I can't praise them enough.
