Tim said no, but he could get them by 2 that afternoon. I went in later in the afternoon and had the wipers installed and my tires inflated to their proper level. Now my car is as ready as it could be in time for the big rain. What great service! Thanks, Tim and Portola Valley Garage! There's a reason why you're my mechanics of choice!"

So far I have only interacted with PV garage to discuss my car and work on setting up appointments. I've had a couple of interactions and I have been so dang impressed that I was compelled to write a review. The communication is great, the service is fantastic, I was able to email some info to Tom in advance to help him give me accurate advice. He emailed back promptly that he'd received my info. I was delighted. And THEN I got a second great email with their online community page where you can request an appointment, input and update info about your vehicle, and see everything you would need to know right there! How fantastic! I've never had so much fun doing car maintenance."

"As usual, the 14 year old truck develops issues on Saturday morning - which don't resolve over the weekend. I come in to the shop on Monday morning with my hair on fire and Tim allows me to mess up his schedule. Tom drives me home (didn't have to pack along the bicycle) and the truck is ship shape by 5 p.m. It doesn't get any better than this in our car culture and our immediate demand mentality. I would have to abandon the truck for a bicycle if it weren't for the kind folks at PV Garage. And would get wet in the rain in the process. If you guys stop doing cars, I stop driving."

"The guys at The Portola Valley Garage are really exceptional at customer service. They are simply so nice. I have been going there for years. I initiated this recent service with the idea that I would do something rather expensive but purely aesthetic. It would have been an easy way for the garage to make some money, but instead of encouraging such folly, they said it was awfully expensive and was I really sure I wanted to do it when a different service would cheaply and easily fulfill the non-aesthetic aspect of the job. I came to my senses and chose the cheaper option, but I can easily imagine a different garage which would have kept their mouth closed or even tried to support my interest in the unnecessary work. Not these guys. Good for them."

"PVG has serviced a Jeep Wagoneer for 26 years that recently achieved a zero emissions rating on the enhanced Calif smog test. Martin Ramies diagnosed and located a design flaw in the Jeep radiator alignment back in '86 that induced too much vibration into the radiator, causing the seams to leak. He fixed it, and it has never leaked since. Tom Ramies and Tim Harris figured out how to bolt a later model 1990s Jeep aluminum bumper on, in place of the old, original heavy chrome bumper- Cook's Auto Body said, " it couldn't be done." More recently on a modern Yukon, PVG saved us time and money by replacing worn out parts with used GM parts they had on hand. Finally, and most importantly, PVG takes care of your car when it is under their control. There is abundant parking so that your car doesn't come back from the shop with dings, scrapes or worse."

"I use Portola Valley Garage for regular service. I had an engine mount break on my BMW and it was making a severe noise. PVG took my car in the morning, had the problem diagnosed, a part ordered and installed that day. I know that other garages could have insisted on replacing other parts that were in the vicinity of the damage and I would have had a hard time knowing, and would have kept the ar much longer. PVG called to let me know status throughout the day and gave me a complete analysis of what was being repaired and why. I trust PVG to give me the straight story, to charge a reasonable price and do an excellent job"

That saved me over $3000 I would've paid had I not listened to my neighbor and gone to PVG! Tom and Tim were great and worked with my scedule. Now my 911 purrs once again. So good To finally have experts I can trust!"
