I had transmission work done and they quoted me $1,700 to $2,400 then when I got my truck back they charged me $3,000 with no explanation. I could have bought a brand new tranny for that! I also had work done to another car and they did not fix the problem, and they fix stuff that did not need to be fixed

My experience was consistent with those of the other reviewers -- staff are efficient, straight-talking, professional and service-oriented. I brought my VW Passat in after growing frustration with previous dealership/mechanic. Bill at B&W gave me clear diagnosis and was dead-on with cost/time estimates. Walked out with healthier car and a full systems report on problems I am to take back to my former mechanic for warranty delivery on recent pricey work. \nFrom now on, the wagon goes back to B&W for her maintenance/repairs. Thanks, B&W Team!\n

I started taking my BMW to these guys for regular maintaniance when I moved to the Mission a few years ago. They only do the work requested and never try to sell me anything extra. Their rates are fair and they advertise in the Bay Guardian and SF Weekely where they usually have coupons for oil changes and tune ups.\n\n Brake and Wheel dosen't take appointments and is first come, first served so it's advisable to get there at 7am when they open. They seem to be pretty popular since there is allways a line of cars waiting in the morning. \n

I've had some minor brake work done there before. They didn't do a great job but I thought it was possibly a fluke because they subsequently fixed the problem.\n\n Fast forward to today. In their weekly ad they list an oil change for $19.95. It lists oil types available, one of which is 20W-50 weight. I asked for this type of oil and was told that it would cost me an extra $10. I said ""not according to your ad"". The woman asked where I had seen the ad and I told her; I had a copy of the Guardian in my hand as I told her. \n\n A guy behind the counter said it was a misprint. I've heard this song before so I told him they were still legally responsible for what was in the ad. \n\n The owner then appeared and with ad in hand verified that the 20W-50 oil was indeed listed there. But then he said something to the effect of they usually charge more because it's not one of the ""usual types"" of oil.\n\n He finally agreed to (kind of as a favor) do the oil change saying he'll take care of it and wrote 20W-50 on the work order.\n\n They changed the oil quickly but as I drove away I wondered what weight of oil was in my car.

I have brought my car to brake and wheel several times, and have always received the best service. Monday I brought it in for an oil change and to check my brakes. My final bill was $24.00. I remember when I used to bring it to the dealership and never got out of there for less than $700.00!!! I trust brake and wheel to do a great job and to never overcharge a poor girl like myself. They rock!!!

I spent 40% more than I would have at my regular mechanic to get a complete brake job. The job got done quickly and presumably well. But the brakes were out of adjustment (dragging while driving), requiring another day in the shop. Now they are out of adjustment in the opposite direction (parking brake doesn't keep the car from rolling). For $1150 I expect a job done right the first time.

I love this place because it is the first auto repair place in my life that I feel comfortable going to as a woman without a male companion to ""talk car"" with the people working there. I've been taking my car there for over ten years, and I have never been anything but happy. It's close to BART if you need to leave your car and get back to work. Or, better yet, if you've got the time..... shop and eat your way through the Mission.
