Absolutely amazing! I found James on Yelp while looking for a mechanic to handle a pre-purchase inspection (PPI), to purchase the car, sight unseen. He went through the car top to bottom, inside and out. Ultimately, he gave me the OK that the car was easily likely to go another 100k+ with nothing but fluid changes (which includes brake fluid, oil, coolant, ATF, etc.), as much of the large maintenance items seem to have just been done. He went into as much detail as to lay out every single light that was out. The next time I saw James was for a check engine light that I spent countless hours trying to diagnose. For some perspective, I drove to him from downtown SF, even though there are quality mechanics that are certainly closer. It seems like he took almost an obsessive attitude trying to diagnose this -- it was one of those engine codes that say one thing, with the root cause being one of a dozen different things, each one being difficult to test. After going down the *very* detailed list of everything that he did to diagnose the issue, he recommended the option that ultimately would net him the least amount of money. Unfortunately it was not great news for the car, but due to my experiences with him, I knew that I could trust his diagnosis. Would not hesitate recommend James at Oakmont to friends and family and will be bringing my cars here for any other service in the future! Thanks James!
Thank you so much Jason for the review, it was a pleasure as always working with you. You were right I did take this one in an obsessive manner, I really wanted to know exactly what the problem was before giving you information on repairing the vehicle to the proper way. I always go up against cars trying to be the best at what I do. I really appreciate your business and I look forward to seeing you in the future. Thank you, James @ Oakmont Auto Care
