I am a retired military maintenance test pilot, flight examiner, and Army Airborne Ranger (OORAH!) and I have been able to do most of my own auto repair for most of my life. Before I started taking my car to Portola Valley Garage, I had only worked with one other garage that I felt I could trust and do excellent work. Since I discovered the Portola Valley Garage, I have not had a repair done in 10 years that I thought I could have done better myself; call me particular, call me a perfectionist, my wife calls me a control freak! These guys are completely trustworthy, fair, and their work is the best. The Bay Area is extremely fortunate to have a shop of this quality. Tom Ramies, with his sidekick Tim :) are the only guys I trust to bring my car to.
