We have been taking our cars to Gilmores for 16 years. They have been a joy to work with and have helped us eek many more years out of our cars. They have given us great advice on purchasing new (used) cars and have always worked hard to meet our needs time wise. We highly recommend them.

Having received a flyer in the mail I decided to give Gilmore's a try. I went to the business address to see first hand what kind of an outfit Gilmore's would be. I met the owner Phil Sanders and immediately had a warm feeling that one is dealing with a knowledgeable individual. We hit it off on the right note. Although my "project" was just a routine service, I felt comfortable that my car was in good hands and that the service was conducted along the manufacturer's recommended guidelines. Based on my experience I highly recommend Gilmore's as a viable alternative to a dealership-provided service. Phil left me with the feeling that I am dealing with an honest and forthright business partner.

Gilmore's Auto Service has been my auto mechanic for over 20 years; they have earned my total trust. They are HONEST, KNOWLEDGEABLE and a delight to work with. Will go the extra mile to serve the customer! There are plenty of mechanics out there but I prefer to keep my business right here with Gilmore's Auto Service! They have NEVER let me down!

NANCY STEVENS - Walnut Creek, CA

This place is great!! After moving to Walnut Creek 4 years ago and thoroughly researching local auto shops I decided to go with Gilmore's Auto and I've never been disappointed! Everyone here is very friendly and works hard. The owner Phil is always approachable and available at the front desk to offer great customer service and give honest quotes. He even charges less if able to find cheaper parts, offers you a ride if needed, and a Snapple on the way out on a hot day! Always a job well done!
