Thanks for taking care of The Bumble. She’s 15 and going strong! My Ford Expedition needed some TLC, good job by the great staff there (esp Raya!)

Thank you so much for helping the kind folks at HiS with the repairs for those in deep need! You are awesome and I will pass the word to everyone I can!

Bernie’s has been so good to us and the ‘second love of our lives,’ Marge, our 1993 Chevy Camper Van! Super friendly and eager to be helpful. They’ve gotten us out of a bind when I showed up one morning in desperation.

I’m normally pretty wary of car repair shops but Bernie’s Automotive restored my faith in them and I have gone back to them many times over the last ten years.

Thorough, fair, and extremely helpful. My customer experience here has been top notch. I have so much more piece of mind about my vehicle after talking to these guys and their experience with Subaru’s in particular. Alan even managed to save our family vacation this summer by squeezing us in on late notice

Great Customer Service!

Logan Rooper, Google

Went to Bernie’s to have them put in a new clutch for my Tacoma and drives like a dream! They are spend’y but with the 3yr warranty and great service I give them 5* I would definitely recommend this place and come back for services.

Richard K., Yelp

I was blown away with the level of detail, patience and professionalism demonstrated by Bernie’s staff. After 10 years of taking my Honda to the dealer, I’ve come to realize that the quality of service from the dealer is sub-par compared to what you get from Bernie. Their prices are competitive and they are trustworthy. Top notch.
