Praise Jesus, Hallelujah for answered prayers! It's been a challenging few months in terms of unexpected challenges/expenses coming out of the woodworks. Our car had a major power steering fluid leak situation caused by a broken power steering hose and Mike, the owner, and his team of angels were able to get it fixed! From the 1st moment I called this place, after Oliver Automotive was highly recommended by a dear trusted friend and also seeing all of the stellar reviews online, I was extremely blessed because Mike himself picked up the phone. I spoke to Mike about my situation, especially since both my husband and I have only this one car that we both share, and Mike accommodated me by having me drive over right away so that at least he could do an initial exam. Thank you Mike and team for going above and beyond in providing best-in-class service so that we can pick up our car one day later since we only have one car that we're sharing! While I was waiting while Mike was doing the initial exam, I had a chance to talk to some of his wonderful staff-Tammy and David! This place and staff ooze with great energy! It's unfortunate that our car had this challenging issue, but God gave us beauty for ashes with this gem of a place! Thank you Mike for taking such great care of us and hiring such wonderful staff! Also absolutely love how lovely the garage is, warm and inviting-the nicest garage I have ever been in with great music over the speakers! Love the very warming beautiful electric fireplace and beautiful paintings in the office! Thank you Oliver Automotive for being ethical, accountable, personable, and highly knowledgeable with your craft!

5 stars given because Oliver Automotive is the best! - Joel M (5 star review found on Facebook)

I had been having trouble with a P0420 code in my Subaru Outback for quite some time. I had been recommended by Jay @ Jay's Kustom Exhaust and Muffler to see Mike Oliver. Upon understanding my ongoing situation with the car Mike had me come back in a couple of weeks when he had some free time to look at it. The end result was me needing a new catalytic converter. He didn't even charge me for the diagnosis. That was awesome. – Jan B (5 star review found on Yelp)

Mike Oliver is the man, and his business has been honest and valuable to the citizens of Novato for many years...He took an obscure problem in my '94 T-Bird, fixed quickly and cheaply...and didn't try to upsell me or anything. He knew I was a customer that was not going to spend more than the minimum, so he spared both of us the headaches of "this and that" is wrong...My mechanic that I've always gone to is in Petaluma...I want a mechanic in the town I live and work in, and Oliver's has my business! – Jason S (5 star review found on Yelp)

Mike Oliver IS the man. I walked in on a holiday afternoon in need of a small auto part that nobody had. Mike took time out of his day and called around searching for the part and then looked through his own stuff and found what I needed. Then he tried to give it to me for free! This guy will get my family and friends business from now on, I have not seen this quality in a businessman for a long time. Highly recommended!! – MH (5 star review found on Yelp)

Mike's shop is clean and all work I have done has been excellent. He listens to the problem, gets it fixed quickly and charges a fair price. I couldn't be happier with knowing I have an honest mechanic within walking distance of my home. He takes care of all maintenance on my Volvo - wouldn't think of going anywhere else. – Debbie F (5 star review found on Yelp)

This is the cleanest and most honest shop I've ever been to. Mike provides great value and doesn't nickel and dime you or try to sell you service that your vehicle doesn't need. First class all the way. – Brian G (5 star review found on Yelp)

This auto body place is reliable and honest! – Jackie O (5 star review found on Yelp)

Oliver Automotive has been our auto repair shop for over 5 years now. We have older vehicles, and he keeps them in top shape and is always fair on charging for parts and service. Mike Oliver the owner and his employee Mike treat us like family. Thanks Mike and we hope we don't see you soon! – Anonymous (5 star review found on Yelp)

Took my car to Oliver's after I was having some trouble with it. They were very nice and diagnosed my car free of charge, it turned out I needed to replace my whole transmission. They worked very hard to get my quotes and find a used transmission that would be affordable. I ended up not doing any work on the car and was not charged any money. They provide good service and are very honest with their work. This is the only place I take my car when I have a problem, it is hard to find mechanics that you trust and are accommodating, but I have so I am staying with it. I definitely recommend if you need a mechanic you give them a try. – Jordan A (5 star review found on Yelp)
