I took a break from going to Jerry at Campbell Automotive because I got a maintenance deal with the dealership. They totally understand that this happens, and he warned me to beware. He was right! I thought the dealership would have my best interest in mind, but was I mistaken! Once the maintenance deal was expired I returned to the place I TRUST 100%, that's Campbell Automotive. I went in for a simple oil change and an (I don't know how many points) inspection. My 4-year old battery had been leaking acid and my engine was sweating oil. It was apparent that this has been happening for sometime. While Jerry could have fixed this, he suggested I take the pictures he took for me to the dealership and ask them why I was never told about this. He told me that they could possibly fix it under warranty. It worked! The dealership fixed everything under warranty and Jerry saved me money!! Jerry's place is not the cheapest (or the most expensive), but I would bet they are the most honest people out there. I don't know much about cars so I appreciate there knowledge, experience, and honesty!

i had a rattling noise come on whenever i pressed the accelerator on my 2010 Honda Fit. Based on a Google search, i took my car to Campbell Automotive for the first time, as my regular mechanic was open with restricted hours.

My car had too many things wrong with it, and the owner of Campbell Automotive didn't recommend to fix it, and recommended to buy a replacement car instead. He gave me a lot of advice on how to go about buying a car, and getting rid of this car. They are very professional and knowledgeable. They would honestly tell you that your car isn't worth fixing, and would not just charge you a lot of money trying to fix it anyway. I highly recommend Campbell Automotive.

I came in for the first time during a dire emergency after a botched oil change wreaked havoc on my car. After they started asking me questions about how old things were on the car, like many conversations that year, it ended with "This car belonged to my mom, and she just died. I'm sorry but I just don't know." Ever since, Harry and the team have taken such thoughtful care of my car. Each appointment, we talk about the plan for things that need attention soon but I'm never pushed into things I don't need. They charge more than fair prices for the level of service and care you receive. They track how old my brakes, batteries, etc. are so I no longer worry about any unfortunate surprises. Not only did they save my car from imminent death, but they keep it running great and keep me very informed of what it needs to stay that way. Today I was just in for an oil change. They know I usually walk to and from there so they made sure I wasn't walking there to pick it up in the rain. My windshield wiper has been doing something annoying for a couple weeks now that I forgot to mention to them, but of course when I just picked it up, it's "magically" fixed. These are some of the nicest and most thoughtful mechanics you'll meet in the bay - just go see them.

This place is literally the best! I’ve never had a mechanic that I truly and completely felt was on my side and completely transparent. More than once they’ve called me and told me that I didn’t need to do a repair or there was an easier and cheaper alternative. I will continue coming here and long as I live in the area. Highly recommend.

I was referred to this brilliant shop by my grandfather, a long time, insanely loyal customer. When he heard I was in need of a mechanic, he immediately recommended "Harry and his boy at Campbell Automotive." He was so persistent in fact that I really didn't have a choice in the matter...old people are great that way, no?

I took my Hyundai Sonata 2012 for a drip transmission oil change, and they performed remarkably well. Fast and smooth. The mechanic seemed knowledgeable, and he also was open to suggestions (I had the procedure on my tablet, as well). Price seemed fair to me, and they did not try to force me to buy their transmission fluid (I had my own OEM fluid). I highly recommend them, and I will go back, if needed.

I had my daughter take her Jeep Compass into Campbell Automotive because her gas mileage seemed very low. Harry was very friendly and ran a diagnostic on her car and found no issues. He then spent the time to talk to my daughter how to get better gas mileage and how to self maintain her car. He did all this at no charge. Thanks Harry!

This place is very over priced I never experienced prices like this It is not normal to pay $535 to replace Front only brake pads and have a oil change and brake fluid flush on top of it all it's a Nissan pathfinder 2002 And then has the nerve to tell me that I need washer fluid I mean he could not even fill the washer fluid! They charge over $140 an hour not even Porsche mechanics charge that parts cost $161 Labor was $350 For brake pads and oil change and brake flush On our Just found out they charged for an oil change And they never changed my oil these guys could of caused major damage to my car If I did not check my oil today!!

When my car suddenly started making a very alarming knocking noise, I was in Campbell, far from my usual mechanic in Santa Cruz where I live. A quick check on Yelp let me know that the nearest mechanic was Campbell Automotive and I am so glad they were there. I pulled up and Bill dropped what he was doing to come and hear the noise, offer a diagnosis, and make some adjustments--turned out to be something that could be patched and allow me to get home to my regular mechanic. My car engine would have frozen and died without the generous help of Bill and Campbell Automotive. He only charged me for oil and no labor! EXCELLENT and trustworthy service.

I took my car to Campbell Automotive for the first time this week. I had a problem with my coolant system. Harry did a very good job repairing it and when I went to pick up the car they had run diagnostics on the car and explained everything that is fine with my car and possible upcoming problems, even the cracks in my front tires. All I had noticed is the tread was still ok and not the cracks in the sidewall. I will buy new tires next week. He even replaced the battery in my key FOB for free because the diagnostics indicated the battery was low. This will be my mechanic from now on.
