I've been a customer for 4 yrs. I've repeatedly informed JL my aftermarket performance ball joints have grease zerts and require lube. I went for an oil change today, I verified they know about the zerts. At post inspection, they showed me my coolant was a quart low...? I checked under the vehicle and showed them that the zerts had not been touched. They pulled the vehicle back in, and I asked to speak with the mgr Nikolay. I negotiated for them to top the coolant. The tech said my ball joints were torn. I stated they shouldn't be, unless they are not competent to do that service. When I got home, I crawled under the vehicle, to check that the oil filter had been changed, and to inspect the ball joints. I opened the hood to verify that the coolant had been topped off. What I found...? That the tech disconnected a vacuum line from my air filter to the engine, when he was topping off the coolant. No longer a customer. Filing a report with Bureau of Automotive Repair.

Marvin's Quality Auto Care
I interned at Marvin’s Quality Auto Care since September 17th 2013. Since I've been giving the opportunity for having Marvin as my mentor in his automotive shop. The experience has been an eye-opening to the real world and experiencing real world situations. I've seen Marvin work on cars and he really takes his time making sure the work he puts into is “Quality Auto Work”! He is and gives 100% Honesty, Passion and Quality Work. Every customer that I have seen has leave the shop 100% satisfied guaranteed. He also teaches me real life experiences, and taught me how to write up a car and put it in invoice. He tells me how to satisfy the customer even though he does it naturally. He has over 35yrs of experience in the Automotive Industry.

Dan's Service
(this is an UPDATE From another review i made, nearly 4 years ago, and YES i copied parts of it, because i hate to TYPE... please forgive... but i Always give credit to folks, when it is Due.) so as i mentioned before - Dan's Service is located in a small industrial area accessible from either harbor blvd. or west capitol ave. in west Sacramento. members of my family, as well as coworkers have been taking our vehicles to Dan and Ken for QUITE a few years now ! and they have (Still) proven themselves to be honest and reliable in all aspects of our dealings with them. I got RID of my poorly built, pile of FORD (A 1996 Taurus), and in 2011 i purchased a supercharged 1998 Buick Riviera with 133.000 miles, and since it has no "Distributor", i thought it best that i Immediately bring it in to Have the camshaft and crankshaft ignition sensors Replaced. and since Almost EVERYTHING had to be removed to get to the crankshaft sensor, i decided to have them replace the water pump and Bell Housing/Harmonic Balancer (there is a rubber piece that gets rotten in it, if it breaks it can throw all the belts) "Ken" also replaced all the pulleys as well... and due to the very cramped workspace, THIS was no Easy Task ! But as usual.. they did it RIGHT, because a year and a half later it still purrs like a kitten. and let me tell you, these Buick's are sweet!.. but somewhat temperamental, especially where the Electronics/Sensors are concerned.So KUDOS, my friends.. and "Dan" & "Ken" are (STILL) always there for me with reasonable and reliable service. and they have never tried to "up-sales" me or pull any punches, and they have reliable contacts for "Referral", IF a repair is not in their scope of Talent... and those qualities are Refreshing, in light of my prior experience with mechanics in general. (BUT... The Shop is NOT FANCY ! there is no room for a waiting room... But since this is a REAL mechanics shop, and not some "coddling" overdone car Dealership, i Believe i can live with that... ) I highly recommend "Dan" and "Ken" at Dan's service if your looking for honest competent mechanics ! review by, Todd p. Farmer, of West Sacramento
Tips & Advices
Among the common scams pulled are needless repairs, where a garage charges you for work that isn't necessary. Another popular one is attracting customers through a cheap oil change or tire pressure check. Then, when you your car is being repaired, they give you a long list of other corrections they'd like to make, therefore boosting the total cost of your bill. The best way to combat these types of problems is getting a written estimate before work is done so you can see how much repairs are expected to cost. If the final bill is higher than the estimate projected, ask to specifically see the work. Make sure information is put in writing as well. If a problem remains, you can have proof that work was not done to your satisfaction.
For winter driving, features such as the defroster, heater and exhaust system are paramount. Look in your owner's manual for specific directions on how features should be checked and repaired. Many newer cars have a cabin air filter that can be replaced when needed, allowing warm air to continue to flow in. Also, check tires before winter driving, as they need to be at the proper pressure to perform well on snow and ice.
In the spring and summer, you want to be sure your air conditioner and cooling systems work correctly. Given the high temperatures, overheating is a common problem. Look over the system by ensuring there is enough coolant available. If it needs to be refilled, it is best to open the hood and add more to the car before it gets too warm out. Also, clean out fan ducts and other ventilation sources necessary for summertime driving.
Some fixes to your car can be done without paying a specialist. Issues like replacing oil and air filters are relatively simple, with instructions provided in the owner's manual on how to make these changes. The same goes for replacing broken windshield wipers or burnt-out headlights. Such issues should be repaired quickly to guarantee safety, but don't require a visit to a garage.
Yes. Not every type of auto repair work needs to be done by a certified mechanic. You can fix some of a vehicle's issues just by paying attention to how the automobile is running and having a basic understanding of auto repair. Look over the ways weather may impact your car and what preventative measures you can take to avoid having to take it into the shop.
