My service consisted of replacing a worn out alternator in a 2011 Volvo, along with replacing the drive belt. As always, the service was reasonably priced, timely, friendly, and confidence inspiring. We've been taking our cars to this shop for years and have never been disappointed.

Awesome service, been coming here for years and 3 cars later, still enjoying the service. Back breaks were wearing super quick on my Nissan Altima (back breaks at 10% and front at 90%!) took them in and they performed a thorough inspection. Still couldn't find the problem as everything seemed to be working properly, but since the breaks were wearing faster than normal, they called the manufacturer and got them to fully cover the replacement breaks. So just paid for the labor, and free breaks, which I feel like was a great deal. Appreciate the service and willing to go the extra mile even though it couldn't be solved immediately.

By Hugh T. in Santa Barbara, CA
We wanted to upgrade the suspension on our van. I could have done the work myself but didn't feel comfortable doing it. Paul changed out the parts and had the van ready in just a couple of hours and at a very reasonable cost.

I made an appointment for a scheduled service and Paul welcomed me by name when I dropped the car off. When I picked up my car, he explained what they did and what was recommended. We are so happy to have found Powell Garage!

Paul is straightforward and tells me what needs to be done now and in the future. No extra’s just what my vehicle needs and nothing more! The best trustworthy garage ever and I wouldn’t go anywhere else! Thank you Paul and the rest of the crew!

Excellent customer service. Provided ride to bring me home and picked me up when my car was ready. Explained service done and even arranged to have duplicate made for my car key. Explained what maintenance service is needed in the near future. Very professional in conducting business.

Powell Garage is the best. From an oil change to major repairs, they diagnose, repair and work efficiently in a friendly manner.

I have found Powell's garage to be trustworthy, reliable, and fair priced. Paul provides excellent customer service as well. Due to a time constraint, I dropped in without an appt. concerned about a noise my car was making. He assessed it and was able to fix it the same day. Very much appreciated.

As always, for years, Paul and his crew at Powell's got my car in, did all the work needed and suggested, got it to me as promised and was, as always, so polite and good at explaining what was needed, what could be deferred and found something I'd seen a symptom of but forgot to tell him. I trust Paul to tell me the truth, do what he says he'll do, and finish the job right - for what seems a pretty reasonable price, but then I've been going only here for years. And this is a 20 year old Honda Odyssey that I've had 'for the dogs'.

Powell’s is keeping my 2008 Nissan in good shape with care and kindness and consideration of my budget, so grateful!

I brought my car in to have a dead battery replaced. Paul gave me a lift home and had already ordered a new battery for my car (not in their inventory). It was done and ready for pick up in record time.
