I'll admit it - I don't know the first thing about cars and I have paid too much for unnecessary or relatively minor services at other garages in the past. I decided to try Cole's based on three other reviews I read on this site. My car is 10+ years old and I'm about to move across country. I had a ton of work done that I had been putting off (including a new timing belt and water pump), and based on my old repair orders from other garages, I can tell that the cost was very reasonable. Mike, my mechanic, included a number of services as a courtesy. He even told me that I didn't need new brakes, when *2 years ago*, a mechanic at the Firestone on Geary tried to convince me to get new brakes. At least I knew enough to decline that one. If you've ever worried that you weren't being charged reasonable prices at a garage or that mechanics were suggesting unnecessary services, you can come to Cole's and not worry about it. Also, they completed all of my work during 1 day.

Pros: friendly, trustworthy (i.e., honest prices)

Cons: none for me

I've trusted all my cars to Cole Garage - honest and great work (ie, no ripping you off). Dirk and Mike are great with domestic and foreign cars and often do the little things for free. Minor draw back is they can be busy, so make an appointment. Highly recommended from this SF native!

I highly recommend Cole Garage. I have been taking my car there for 3 years, and am always pleased with the service and the price. I took my car in under the impression that I needed all new brakes and in reality I only needed new front brake pads. I locked my key in my car around the corner and caught the owner closing shop, he ran over and unlocked my car just as a neighborly favor.

Pros: trustworthy, reasonably priced, and interact with Mike the mechanic

Cons: somtimes tough to get an appointment

I've brought car's here a few times. They are slow as molasses but if you can wait they do a good job at a very reasonable cost. Good, nice people too. The only garage that I've been to in SF that I've liked so far...

Cole Garage is one of the few garages I love. They have always serviced my car quickly and efficiently. Their prices are very reasonable and you know what you are being charged for. There are no hidden charges whatsoever! I am glad there is a place to get a tune up without spending a fortune.

Their prices are very reasonable and you always know up front what you will be charged. There are no hidden charges. I am glad there is a place to get a tune up with spending a fortune.

With the convenient location and the N Judah right there, you can drop off the car for a service or the more serious (lots of clutch/transmission work 'cause of the hills) and then jump onto the MUNI and get to wok without hassle. Dirk (the owner) runs around personally checking all of the work that is done, while Mike (not grumpy, he is seasoned) will tell you the low down on what to do with your car after the service. If he says ditch it then do it without questions.

Great work on all types of cars, I have taken some real pieces of s$%t in there and they always come out better with a honest opinion of the damage.

PROS: Work, Service quality and opinons. Honest as the day is long.
CONS: Busy location, but at least you can get a coffee/baguette

Every one who has sent their car here swears by this place. Never a single complaint. They will quote you a fair price. They will tell you exactly what is wrong, how urgent the problem is and they won't try to talk you into anything. The service is fast and they are reliable. No nonesense. perfect.
