"Jon is truly a cut above the rest. He’s is very helpful, honest, and consistently delivers top-notch work. Jon's dedication goes beyond the ordinary and he’s very efficient.  His unwavering commitment to assisting clients like me is very apparent. They perform the  best quality of work at very reasonable prices and they are quite friendly. I wish more places and mechanics were like this. It’s a pleasure doing business with them."

"The whole team is super helpful and efficient. I use my car to get to multiple patients homes throughout the day (not just to and from work) which always complicates being able to leave my car for long periods. Shoutout to Tiara at the front desk who has always been really understanding of that and helps me find times that work and helps get me in in a pinch. They’re thorough without recommending a bunch of work I don’t actually need. It’s very nice as a woman to be able to go to a mechanic and fully trust them. Fair prices and quality work. John and team are the best!"

"Jon is the best of the best. He and his team are helpful, honest and do good work. Jon goes above and beyond to help his clients. I once had a car that broke down and Jon let me store my vehicle at his shop for two weeks free of charge while I sold it. Highly recommend EZ Automotive to anyone in SB."

"I've been coming here for years. I brought my Mercedes, later a Honda, and for the past few years a Lexus. My wife brings here MBZ too. I have never had complaints. They go above and beyond.

Shout out to John Birchall, owner"

After having my battery replaced, my car would not start. The person who installed the battery was at a complete loss, as was the tow truck driver. I had it towed to EZ Automotive. John was wonderful.  I explained my situation on the phone and he and his team got my car in immediately. After checking the battery connectors and resetting the computer, the car was up and running.  They were friendly and helpful, and incredibly, there was no charge as it was such a minor issue. I am so pleased with the team at EZ. I will definitely be back with any future auto needs.
