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)

Mike's been my family's mechanic for years. He rules. He knows his stuff and hooks it up. Gives great deals, doesn't rip you off with unreal parts and labor prices. He's just the man. Just do yourself a favor, go to Oliver Automotive or go home. – Saralina B (5 star review found on Yelp)

Oliver Automotive is the best!! We've been going to Mike Oliver's shop for years and each time he is thorough in explaining the problem and equally as thorough in doing the repair work.  Not only does he and his mechanics provide excellent service, but he also is reasonably priced.  My husband and I highly recommend Oliver Automotive and the owner, Mike, is AWESOME!!   Your car is in excellent hands at Oliver Automotive. – Diane R (5 star review found on Yelp)

This place is great.  The guys didn't try and sell me unnecessary services.  They diagnose and fix what is needed.  What else could you ask for?  It is nice to support local business and not a chain.  I know my car is in good hands here. – Kevin M (5 star review found on Yelp)
