Nov 11, 2015 Google 5 Star Review
"Steve Righetti has been here 40 years and taken care of my company's fleet of trucks and family vehicles. The experience they have results in time and money saved over the dealership's inexperienced technicians.
Service writers at the dealership are aggressive about sales and paid bonuses for making the dealership money over a specified amount and encourages them to perform unnecessary replacement of parts and services at your expense.
I am more than capable of repairing my own vehicles but not having the time to do, so I trust this repair facility."

"I have been going to Righetti Automotive for 33 years since I married my husband! My husband suggested I quit going to my old mechanic as I was always complaining after my service of my car. I have relied on Steve Righetti to be upfront with me on all my repairs to my automobiles. He has repaired my Honda, collectible 1979 corvette, jeep, VW Rabbit, Monte Carlo, mustang, Toyota Tundra truck, Camaro and even my 4 Dodge Chargers! I would highly recommend Righetti Automotive for any type of moving vehicle. I would say there is no car or truck that he can't fix! I would rate his work as 5*! He stands by his work and I would definitely recommend his place of business. He is still servicing my vehicles as of this date. 7/25/2016."

"The BEST. Steve is 100% honest, very knowledgeable, and fast. He'll save you money by not doing unnecessary repairs that other shops would do to pad your bill.
He won't tie up your car all day when he only needs it 4 hours and he'll find ways to save you money without sacrificing a top notch job. Example is he won't use inferior parts to save money and have you break down in the middle of the desert but he will know some repair shortcuts that hardly anyone else will know about.
In my younger days I had a wholesale auto parts business and I can tell you you'd be lucky to find one is a hundred who's as honest and reliable as this shop. These people walk their talk.
I'm always surprised there isn't a line several blocks long waiting for his services. Other shops call him when they're stumped.
For unknown reasons there are 15 five star ***** reviews that are suppressed & not counted."

"We have two classic MR2s and Steve is the ONLY place we'll take them. A Lexus SUV as well. He has done amazing work, technical stuff, stuff with our classics that is sometimes a PitA but he's always ALWAYS willing to go the extra mile with us to do it and do it right. We come all the way down from Novato just to go to Steve and would even if we lived 50 miles away (or more!)... He's just that good."

"First class service and caring about my vehicle! I have a 2001 cargo van and it stays young by the expert service at Righetti. Thank you Steve and your incredible staff."

 Brandon W. Yelp 5 Star Review
"Just got a pre-purchase inspection for a kia sedona mini van. Steve was fair and honest and did a great job!"


Nathan A. 5 Yelp Star Review
"Great shop. I brought in a Ford '92 E-350 7.3L diesel school bus and they did a great job inspecting it and were very informative on the severity and priority of the different problems. They also offered other great insights into the non-mechanical aspects of the vehicle (legality, etc) which is a great plus."

Agatha M. Yelp 5 Star Review
"Short review: Mr. Steve must have been one of the most generous, sincere and honest businessman that I have ever met. I would definitely come back here if ever I need to have my car repaired again."

Taffy L. Yelp 5 Star Review
"EXCELLENT! My family has been going to Righetti for as long as I can remember. I just had my first experience with them last month and just made an appointment for my second round of work. They explained everything to me, made me a list of priorities and helped me come up with a plan to fit my budget. I couldn't have asked for a better experience."

Wes S. Yelp 5 Star Review

"Steve's team is friendly and knowledgeable. I took in a used car that I was thinking of purchasing, and they showed me all of the problematic areas and saved me a lot of money and time by recommending that I not buy what would have given me many problems down the road. They're also one of the few mechanics in the area that has Saturday hours, another bonus!"

Mike M. Yelp 5 Star Review
"I have been using Righetti Automotive for over twenty years for both my families cars and my work fleets. Steve and the staff have always been helpful and really know their stuff when it comes to fixing things correctly for the best price. I have really been pleased to have such a honest and reliable place for auto repair. They make my life easy by having the piece of mind that I have mechanics I can trust!

"LOVE this place. Honest, friendly, fair and open on Saturday. Steve, Bob, and Roger are exactly what you want when taking your car in. They took care of my 'emergency' without any issues and went above and beyond to make sure it was all fixed. I will be taking my car here for all my needs."

Allen H. Yelp 5 Star Review
"My wife went there to have work on her car. They were extremely nice, fairly priced and communicated immediately when issue was diagnosed. Highly recommend."

Glen K. Yelp 5 Star Review
"I needed a new ring gear and battery on my '79 Cadillac....and after that was done, a few other things got repaired along the way, with no charge. I was very happy with their attention to details. I think they could spot problems like an eagle following a mouse in a field at long distance, it seems. There were other things that I can have done, but they wouldn't go ahead without my permission......leaving it for another time. They were very honest and to the point. If they needed a bit more time, or were very busy, they let me know.
Steve, the owner.....is very knowledgeable, and thorough. He takes pride in doing a good job for you, and it shows."

Ron A. Yelp 5 Star Review
"Excellent experience - Knowledgeable, competent, and on time. Unusual for an auto repair shop!"

Denis P. Yelp 5 Star Review
"Had my 2 year maintenance service done on the Caddy.

Steve is still methodical and basically a nice guy to interact with.
Saturday with an appointment.

Thanks Steve."

Brent G. Yelp 5 Star Review
"Steve and Bill are probably the best in the biz. Very honest and fast. Highly recommended! Will be back for future repair and services!"

H H. Yelp 5 Star Review
"I cannot say enough good things about Righetti Automotive. I was referred to Steve Righetti 10 years ago when another auto repair shop could not, after repeated visits, fix a problem with my car. Steve found the problem in 10 minutes. Since then, my whole family has continued to use their services to great satisfaction. Steve, Bill and Roger are all superb mechanics, especially good when it comes to solving difficult diagnostic issues. Steve has gone out of his way to find the best and most inexpensive parts available for my car. They are good at explaining what they do and are totally honest and trustworthy. They will save you time and money in the long run. Highly recommended!"

Janet R. Yelp 5 Star Review
"My husband and I have been using Righetti Automotive for some time and have always been very happy with the professionalism and honest nature of all of it's employees. Recently, our car was in for minor repairs and the mechanics were very informative and explained all of our options. Our bill was thoroughly itemized and explained to us including discounts the mechanic gave us to help offset our expenses. We would highly recommend using Righetti Automotive for any size repair."

Chadwick S. Yelp 5 Star Review
"I've been coming to Steve Reghetti and Reghetti Automotive for more than 10 years. I used to live nearby in Mill Valley....but I continue to use Reghetti exclsuively even though it's a 40 mile drive from Orinda! First with my BMW, then my Explorer Limited and now my Mercedes SL500.

Steve is first and foremost *honest*. But beyond that valuable character trait, he's simply the best diagnostic mechanic I have ever known. Give him the chance and he'll figure out the problem and find a low-cost solution. His idea of a basic oil change is to check every fluid under the hood, give the engine a careful listen for anything I might ignore with the radio blasting away, give the tires and air pressure a check and charge me a fair price for that oil change only.

His attention to preventative maintenance has saved me thousands of dollars and kept my cars reliably on the road. On more than one occasion, if I had taken my SL500 to a Mercedes service department instead of to Reghetti, the bill would have likely been been literally triple or more in costs.

Steve is friendly, talented, dependable and we've grown to be friends over the years. Actually, every time I visit Steve there are always "customer/friends" getting their cars serviced.

His shop is tucked away on Kerner but definitely worth looking for!"

Patrick S. Yelp 5 Star Review
"This shop was nice enough to get me in on a Saturday. Lucky for me, the problem with my car was straightforward and relatively inexpensive to fix. While I was there, several friends of the proprietor stopped by to chat.

Very much a neighborhood operation that is run by straight-dealing people."

Michael R. Yelp 5 Star Review
"Outstanding mechanic. I have been going here for 35 years and they have preformed minor and major repairs to many vehicles I have owned over the years. Always quality work, fair pricing and great customer service. Steve is one the finest diagnostic detectives in the business and he is known among his piers within the auto repair community as such!!! And, I am willing to drive from Petaluma to have them service my car."
