My husband called for a price quote for a 90k service / maintenance for our 2003 Toyota Sienna and got a quote for $650.00. Sounds like a lot but we also called Toyota 101 for a quote and they told us it would be around $1100.00 depending if we needed the water pump, timing belt,, some kind of bearings, and ect. We called back toy auto clinic to see what there prices included and they told us it was for everything! Also, he told us that he was a Toyota certified technician and use to work for the dealer. They offer the same services and use the same parts only thing that was different was the labor rate. My husband and I were sold and decided to give them a try and bring in our Toyota Sienna for repair and when we got it back the engine was washed, the interior was vacuumed, and van was washed. In addition he showed us the old parts! My hubby said that never happened before, he usually needs to ask for it because he wants to make sure they did the job. They even wrote down the percentage left on our brake pads:) Although they told us they washed and vacuumed the car because he had some extra time we were happy with the price and the fact the he cared about out

I took my '96 Toyota Tercel here for a clutch job on a friend's recommendation. My first impression of the shop was that it's very clean. The tech was also very knowledgeable and was able to explain to me what was going on in terms I could actually understand. When I got my car back, I was very pleased with the work. I couldn't even tell that something had been wrong with it. I even got a complimentary vacuum and wash! I will definitely be passing on the recommendation to other fellow Toyota owners!

Got a great service! Got complimentary interior vacuum, cleaned engine. Replace old drive belt, explained everything very well and showed the removed old belt.
I had one hup cap missing and asked to find a replacement, and he saved me money by getting one from a junk yard for $15, while getting a brand new full set would have costed over $100.
Recommend this dealer to everyone!

I brought my 1998 Toyota Tacoma in and asked them to give it a run-through to make sure it was drivable. They did and their advice and service was excellent. They are very flexible and offered factory parts, however since I was on a budget, they only did the repairs that were necessary. Over time I see investing in my truck further and will take it to these Toyota specialist.

I have a 2007 Toyota Prius and I used to get it serviced at the dealership. I have not heard great things about the Toyota dealers in this area and a friend recommended Toy Auto Clinic. I have had bad experiences with mechanics in the past, haven't we all, but Brian at Toy Auto Clinic is personable and helpful. His prices are better than the dealership and I really felt like he listened to me and asked the right questions. He took the time to look the car over while I was there and answer my concerns and questions.
He didn't have the part on site and had to get it from a dealer because Prius parts are still hard to find, but he had it at his shop in the time it took me to walk down the street and have lunch. (at most half an hour) Prior to this repair, I called to find out if it was something they could do because everyone was telling me I HAD to go to the dealer for a Prius repair, but he was helpful and answered my questions and told me to come in any time. I didn't feel that I was getting the brush off that dealers often give you on the phone. Great service, friendly, helpful, great prices. Even though this is a little far from my house, this is where I am taking my car for all repairs from now on!

Amazing service! I took my 2002 Toyota Camry to Toy Auto Clinic from recommendation of a friend. I was so pleased with how Brian treated me and my Camry. There price is very reasonable. He seems to be very honest and kind, explained everything clearly, and did not force any kind of up sell! I experienced many hard sells at Jiffy Lube than made me feel like I got ripped off after leaving. Highly recommend Toy Auto. Their workmanship is excellent and I wish all businesses could be as friendly and dependable!

I still can't believeHow amazing this guy is
I have a 2007 Lexus RX400H and I needed a 90K service on it badly (I was at 120K)
A good friend who works at a Toyota dealership said he'd do it for $2200.00. He claimed it would take 2 days and is difficult. Putnam Lexus: 2 grand to do it. Another shop over by Putnam was "more than willing" to do it for $1400. so then I was looking at Yelp and stumbled on Brian. Everyone had rave reviews and he was close by. I called and asked if he had done a 90K on a lexus? "Yup, sure have" then he quoted me $795 OUT THE DOOR!!!! I'm thinking there's no way he's gonna do this. But I went for it.
Let me tell you people. Brian is EVERYTHING everyone else is saying. I was in at 8AM and out at 4PM. He had a box of parts by his desk and went through everything thoroughly. He even offered to wash the car. all for $795. I will NEVER go any where else... EVER!
Just so you know, He did all this for $795 + tax
