Am I ever happy that Reeves was the one and only business that responded to my needs in a timely way! I was surprised to find out how difficult it was to even get a return call......until I contacted Reeves!  Within a short amount of time, they provided me with an estimate for a remanufactured engine and scheduled an appointment. John, the owner, and Maddy, his office assistant, were both extremely friendly and helpful.  The work was accomplished quickly, economically, on schedule, and without a flaw.  John does great work, is honest and fair, and has my respect.  My experience was so good that Reeves will certainly be my automotive repair business of choice from now on.  I very highly recommend Reeves!!!!

Been going to Reeves for years and they never disappoint. Great people who know their stuff and always go above and beyond. Honest, professional, and efficient. Fun waiting room with interesting books and magazines. The cleanest bathroom around.

John’s customer service and attention far exceeded my expectations. I live in the Bay Area and my son had overheating problems with our truck while he was driving to Cal Poly SLO for college.  After calling 3 other shops, I called Reeve’s Auto Repair.  John listened to the details of the issue and patiently answered my numerous questions.  He was able to quickly see our truck and determine that the problem was a bad radiator and not a blown head gasket as we feared. John’s team did a great job replacing the radiator and he completed an extensive health check on the truck. John is a true, friendly professional who I plan to use if we ever need more automotive work while my son is attending Cal Poly.

I greatly appreciate having an auto mechanic that I can trust and respect and who gets the job completed when promised. The lobby is really comfortable and well-stocked with snacks (extra bonus) and the owner, John is friendly and professional! Part of the service is that they take photos and provide them to you. This is extremely helpful and they also take the time to describe any issues that your vehicle may have. I’m completely satisfied and have referred friends and family to Reeve’s Auto Repair on numerous occasions.

Very nice and efficient service attendant. I think Nicole. A unique waiting area with interesting things to look at. Some vintage items. The best thing was how quickly they completed the smog test on my two vehicles. Less than half-hour. Very pleased and will definitely be back. Will tell friends of my positive experience.

I cannot encourage Reeves enough! They were able to bring my 26-year-old car back from the grave and did so in a timely and considerate manner. I was able to speak on the phone directly with the mechanics as they explained everything to me (no other mechanic shop has done that for me). For peace of mind, go here for any mechanical issue, it will be a stress-free experience.

Your car data owned by manufacturers now

Newer Vehicles Generate as Much As 25GB of Data/Hour according to McKinsey.  Now That is Extremely Interesting!  It is also daunting as we now need to know "what data" right?  You also want to know where it is going if anywhere and who owns the data?  All interesting questions that we never thought about.  Just get in and drive, choose a destination and if a light goes off in the dash you call us here at Reeves Auto Repair to schedule an appointment.   We want our San Luis Obispo drivers to be informed as always and able to make their choices based on having facts.  This is a big change in the automotive-truck service industry and it really has not hit the news at all, so it is up to us to get you up-to-date and informed.  Here are the facts and where you can find more information!

There seems to be a common misconception among many that if you have an aftermarket/extended warranty, that your car, truck, SUV, or Jeep must be taken to a dealership. This is not true. Non-dealership / Independent Automotive repair shops can service and repair your new or UNDER WARRANTY/EXTENDED WARRANTY. As a positive, at our shop, you can get fast service and work with highly trained technicians!  We'd love to take care of your vehicle for you and can do so right here at our automotive shop. Repairs by highly rated and trained automotive technicians with dealer rated diagnostic tools, at BETTER PRICING by a shop that knows you!

It is a law that independent automotive repair shops can maintain and service your warranty. All consumers are protected by the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, which is enforced by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). It prohibits a manufacturer from voiding the new vehicle's warranty or a vehicle's extended warranty because service was performed by a Non-Dealer/Independent Repair shop.

Per the FTC, “It's illegal for a dealer to deny your warranty coverage simply because you had warranty work or routine maintenance or repairs performed by our automotive shop. Routine maintenance can include anything from oil changes, tire rotations and belt replacement, to fluid checks, flushes, new brake pads, and inspections.” It is also important to note that the “Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act makes it illegal for a company to void your warranty or deny coverage under the warranty for the simple cause that you used an aftermarket or recycled part.”

One of the major perks of bringing your vehicle to an independent repair shop is the ability to make your money go further. Many times, warranties will have a limit or a deductible. Our goal is to make your warranty work for you.

Lastly, If you are on the fence about whether or not to purchase an AFTERMARKET or EXTENDED warranty. We suggest opening a savings account for your car and putting back money for possible breakdowns. While warranties are great the limitations can sometimes outweigh the benefits.

Whichever option you may choose we will be there for you every step of the way! We look forward to taking care of your new or under extended/aftermarket warranty, car, truck, SUV, or Jeep right here. Give us a call today!
