Your vehicle will be running good as new

“I'd take my car to Adrian even if I lived in SF. Adrian is an honest professional who did not pressure me with the ‘I found this problem, you need to let me fix it’ gimmick. He expresses his concerns and recommendations all at an affordable price. My vehicle was returned running as good as new.


Long story short, I'm giving this place 5 stars because it’s the maximum amount Yelp will allow me to give.”

- Michael C., Roseville

Fair costs on major repairs

“A Turning Wrenches flyer was left on my door. I decided to go talk to the owner, Adrian, about one of my vehicles. He gave a thorough inspection and although there was more to this repair than anticipated, he was very forthright about the areas of concern.


After all the work that was done the car is now running excellently and most importantly, I feel he was fair in the total cost of this major repair. Much appreciated that Adrian answered all questions and also provided detail on the mechanics of the parts that were replaced.


Adrian is now the mechanic I will have service my cars.”

- Yolanda A., Sacramento

Checking your tire pressure at no extra cost

“As soon as I came in they were very attentive towards me. I came in for an electric fix for my hazard lights and the mechanic Adrian was able to help me very fast and was always straightforward with me about what needed to be done and how much it would cost and how long it would take.


The diagnostic is originally $85, but since he didn't take so long with my car he charged me less! He also checked my tire pressure without me asking and didn't even charge me! Much appreciated since I have no clue on how to do such things. I was very pleased with their service and will definitely be coming back!”

- Kelly P., Los Angeles

Excellent customer service

“There was a suspicious sound from the rear of my Jeep, turning out to be the brakes had worn to the point of smoking the rear rotors.


For the second time that I relied on this mechanic's shop, the proprietor of Turning Wrenches did outstanding work, and did so with excellent customer service and very competitive prices.


I WILL be returning there again - hopefully not too soon, but without question, I would STRONGLY recommend their service to a friend, or anyone else needing a trustworthy, diligent and competent car mechanic, who also happens to be a heck of a nice guy.”

- Richard W., Woodland

Get honesty and so much more when you work with us

“Adrian, at first sight, was very understanding and went out of his way to help me with an urgent issue. I was just driving and I heard a loud noise coming out of my BMW X5 passenger wheel side. I looked for the first automotive shop I could.


When I pulled in first thing I saw was Adrian and he said he heard me coming! Greeted me with a big friendly smile. He immediately took my car in and diagnosed the problem.


He fixed it for a mere $ many people would have tried to take advantage of the I have heard and had experienced so many times before!


Well not this place...this was such an act of trust for him to be honest and just do what was right...since then I keep coming back...he has won me and my family over! ...I would recommend to everyone I know!”

- Tiffany A., Sacramento

Your family owned and operated auto shop

“If you read through any of my previous reviews, you know that I am a pretty darn picky CUSTOMER. Having an extensive customer service background makes me excruciatingly difficult to please.


With that being said, Arlene, the girl at the front desk, is marvelous. I had called the day before to schedule an appointment for Dotty's tune up and oil change. She quoted me a price, I loved it and made the appointment.


Just an FYI: they didn't have a part in stock for Dotty, so she had to put in an order. The next day I came in, she greeted me with a smile and started processing my paperwork immediately. The additional part had arrived earlier that morning and everything was ready to go.


Adrian, the owner/technician was a complete dream. He explained to me exactly what needed to be done and made me feel very comfortable. It took about an hour to get her service done, and I was on my way!


I will definitely be bringing Dotty back for any additional work. I used to live in the South Bay and was really hating having to look for a new shop. I am absolutely happy and pleased to have found a family owned and operated shop. Thank you, Adrian and Arlene. You guys made mine and Dotty's day!”

- Cindy O., San Jose
