taking my car to Hinkley's Auto Tech about 5 years ago. A mechanic
at another shop
recommended Hinkey's to me since they didn't service my new
type of car I had just bought.
I have been ever so satisfied with their
level of service and experience.
Staff is friendly and helpful and
I have always felt I have been told the truth by them as being a single woman I
have worried about that at other shops. I can't say enough good things
I brought a
family members vehicle to this shop. The service was great. I ended up
tires at a reasonable price. With the oil change service they
performed a courtesy inspection,
vacuumed my car and cleaned the windows. They
were also able to diagnose the slipping
condition/road noise issue that the
Hyundai dealership has been unable to diagnose repeatedly.
Kevin and crew have been
working on my cars for 8 years now. Both cars are still in great
(165,000+ miles) due to the care Hinkley Auto Tech provides in both repairing
current issues and maintenance to prevent any major issues.
I highly recommend them for fast and thorough repairs.
Kevin and his
crew have been servicing our cars since we moved to Castro Valley 24 years ago.
They are up to date on all the latest technology involved in the new
models and are very
professional in their dealings with customers. Often,
we stop in for minor problems and they
are happy to come to the rescue. They
are like family to us, I wouldn't dream of going
For the past
decade, Kevin has been taking care of my mother's auto repair needs.
He and his
staff are professional, dedicated, and very sweet! We know her car is in top
order. This is a comfort to as we live out of the area. Pricing is competitive,
but more importantly,
mom (and us) has the peace of mind that her car is
running well. Thank you, Kevin and Staff!
I tried this
garage when I moved to Castro Valley 20+ years ago, as it is convenient to my
I have not had reason to go elsewhere - they do the job and are
cheaper than the dealer.
They take care of my car so that I never feel
concerned about it and they work with me to resolve
problems when necessary.
I let them know when I have a long car trip planned so they can check
the car and, if necessary, do some maintenance "ahead" of schedule
(for example, if the tires
should be replaced while I am on the trip, do it
Peace of mind is what I want - my car is a tool for me and I do not wish to be
about whether it will work. They have allowed me to do this.
My 15+ years of
experience with "Kevin Hinkley Auto Tech" in Castro Valley
called Hinkley's) is that they are the very BEST!!!
Hinkley's is possibly, the greatest business
establishment in the State of
California. They are a family run shop that began over a generation
In addition, the staff appear to one big highly skilled family. I
am very, very happy to be a
customer of Kevin's because:
Older women are often easy targets for service companies . Since I headed
the advice of
co-workers and took my car to Kevin, I've been treated like a
valued customer with the utmost
respect and kindness.
Since I live locally, a member of the staff has picked me up when I needed a
The workmanship is unsurpassed, bar none. No one has worked on my car since I
it new in 2005 and it has never let me down.
The charges are clearly explained and reasonable.
The atmosphere is friendly but professional.
They consistently win awards for all of the above reasons.
I highly recommend Kevin and his crew to anyone looking for an experienced,
excellent auto repair shop.
