So I stumbled upon this place by accident and I’m glad that did I because my high-mileage Jetta was giving me multiple issues at once. Three things that stand out about this shop in my eyes: 1.) Hospitality — best customer service I’ve ever received from any repair facility. 2.) Sense of urgency — I observed management prioritizing the repairs and making all reasonable efforts to get customers back on the road quickly. 3.) Price and transparency — Management was very straightforward about what needed to be replaced today and how the costs broke down. When I researched prices afterwards, I concluded that the prices were indeed very reasonable for parts and labor. This is now going to be my regular shop for every repair going forward.
- Tara Lavertue. 5/24/2020

If you want great service, let them take care of your auto needs.
Thank you all!
- Stacy Molzhon. 5/18/2020
They treated me as if I was family! I went in about 30 minutes before they closed and they treated me as if the doors were just open for the day to get started! Nonetheless I was in and out the next day with brand new brakes and rotors for under 300 bucks and they did an amazing job! Customer service is on point and they were very informative throughout the entire process! Pain-free and I will definitely be going to them for all of my Corvette needs!

Excellent customer service I've been going to Midas for years but I've found a new spot to take care of my oil changes and truck alignments.
- BRADLEY JENNINGS. 3/17/2020
I’ve been coming here for all auto repairs. Great prices, Great work, and really friendly employees. Two weeks ago they replaced my water pump. They had me out of here really fast and they charged a lot less than I was assuming that it would be. I am here now getting a front end alignment. I highly recommend coming here.
- billy brannon. 3/3/2020
Went in for a leveling kit on a brand new truck and came out with more damage. The reason I’m leaving a 5 star review is because of how it was handled after the fact. The manager Joshua owned the problem came up with a solution and made it right. Accidents will always happen in life but how you handle them speaks volumes about your company. Well done.
- Nicholas Gray. 2/17/2020
The guys took extra time to trouble shoot leaking tire. And for it fixed

Cannot thank them enough for their awesome customer service!!!
- Emily Molnar. 1/29/2020

Excellent customer service!!! Had my beloved 1971 Ford Mustang Convertible towed to the San Jose location. Chris, Chris, & Jordan took special care of my one of kind classic. It had no brakes and wasn’t starting after sitting in the garage for many years. They helped get me running like a champ again and I’m so thankful!!! They installed a new distributor, brake conversion, tires, wheels, water pump, belts, hoses, plugs, etc. I found the whole team to be genuine, honest, and courteous. The pricing can’t be beat either!!! Thank you to the Famous Automotive Team.

I wish i could give you 10 stars!!This is the place if you want honesty. I dropped my car off because I had a misfire code. Andrew was able to get me seen and he called asked if I had previously had work done. I told him paperwork was in the console. He looked at it and told me looks like the cylinder that is misfiring had been replaced so it may be a defective part and it should be under warranty. He didn't want to do work that was already done and under warranty..he saved me a bunch of money. He even gave me the schematics and showed me what cylinders were replaced and showed me the OME cylinders so when I go to the previous mechanic I know exactly what I am talking about. I definitely recommend this shop and I will be back.
- Miss B. 8/29/2019
Andrew and Cory rocked it yesterday at the San Jose location. They changed out my camper tires and stabilizer jacks, great price awesome service and got me in right away. Friendly, eager to help!

- Veronica Dykes. 5/3/2019
These are the friendliest group of people I’ve ever encountered at an auto place. When I brought my car in for brakes, they were honest and told me they could do it but that I probably had another 500 miles left on them! I was so appreciative! We take all our company trucks here for tires and service, too. Love the guys at Famous.

- Angelo James. 10/30/2018
I highly recommend famous automotive! My car was making a loud clanking noise and I was super nervous driving with my kids and wanted to get to a mechanic as fast as possible. Tires plus told me they didn’t have time to look at my car, so I went to sun tire who said they’d try to squeeze me in. I look up and notice there’s another mechanic right next to sun tire so I call them (famous automotive) and he told me to pull on in, took my keys and pulled my car in right away. The noise coming from my car was so loud they thought it was coming from a construction site! We all had a big laugh when it turns out a little acorn stuck in my wheel rotor was the culprit. I was back on the road within 15 or so minutes.
Thank you so much Famous!
- Heather Brewer. 9/31/2018
LOVE THESE GUYS! They have been so wonderful in helping me with both of my vehicles. They don't pressure you to do random services and are very honest and thurough. Not to mention they are super friendly.
