Reviews“This was such an amazing experience for me and my husband. Extremely courteous and professional, fast, efficient, expert knowledge in their field…our situation was so unique in that we were literally stranded away several miles away from DS Auto Experts with a dead battery! It was just closing hours and not only did these fine folks pick us up from where we were stranded and give us a jump start to get our car moving again , but picked me up from where I had been working for the day while my husband was stranded with our car with the dead batter! They took us back to their meticulously clean and beautiful facility, gave us snacks to munch on as we were starving from not eating all day, and even gave us a personalized tour of their impressive facility while we were waiting to have our car fixed and our battery replaced while waiting in their luxurious beautifully lit waiting room. These guys went above and beyond when they could have easily just have closed their doors for the evening, gone home to their families to share their own dinner and evenings with them, but instead, in the rainy dark and cold, they all stayed for us, keeping us company and sharing their knowledge and expertise with us. They were true angels and it was a miracle that they were there for us and our vehicle. We had a very long drive back to where we were headed and it gave us so much confidence that we had been in the very best hands that were in their industry. We cannot thank you guys enough! There just aren’t enough words. Awesome, fantastic, what a stellar job!!!!! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts! You were all lifesavers! And our Lexus 350 thanks you too!” ~ Mackenzie S. ★★★★★
“Received a flyer in the mail from this company. So try it and was extremely satisfied with the service that they gave to a 1st timer. Upon paying my bill they also gave me a discount card for my next oil change. Because of this I have taken my P/U in for air condition service. and was updated twice on the problems that were found. They are now my cars doctors no more dealers for me Top rate business!” ~ Larry W. ★★★★★

“On Friday afternoon, Jan 31st, my 88 year old mother become “lost” while driving and fortunately stopped at your place of business. You were kind enough to drive her home and have someone follow you. Words of thanks seem so inadequate for a kindness that comes from the heart. My mom should not have been driving as she suffers from dementia, so now we realize that she can no longer have car keys. To say that my family and I were worried about her wellfare is an understatement. I truly feel that the lord guided her to you for her safety. Thank you so very much for being her guardian angel. Wishing the Lords blessing on you and your family.” ~ Manni ★★★★★

“Dear Mr. and Mrs. Prado, Greetings, my name is Rene J. Mendoza II and I wanted to contact you regarding the service I received from your business that started on 2-4-15. I had been in contact with your Service Consultant Moises Delgadillo, Jr., regarding my 1981 Toyota Pick-up. My pick-up had been leaking oil for some time. I had taken my truck to two different local auto shops in Coalinga, but they could not determine where the leak was coming from.
I brought my truck to DS Auto Experts for a check. I was prepared to wait several hours for the check on my truck. I had brought newspapers, my DVD player and my Android phone. To keep myself entertained while I waited. I was shocked when I had just finished my paper and Moises told me they had determined what was wrong with my truck. Moises explained everything to me.
After discussing my options with my wife, on 2-24-15, I brought my pick-up in for an entire brand new (re-manufactured) Toyota 22R engine. I was expecting to wait a few weeks to have all the work on my truck finished. After all, I figured with having to pull out the engine and then put a new engine in, I was prepared to wait a few weeks.
Well on 2-27-15, my jaw hit the floor. Moises called me and said my truck was ready for pick up. I was shocked, dumbfounded, amazed. The engine had only arrived on 2-25-15 and now, three days later, an old engine had been removed, the entire truck checked, fixed and put back together!! Auto Technician Cerrillos Aguilar (AL 078) had done the work on my truck. I arrived to pick up my truck. Moises was kind enough to stay late so my wife could drive me in to pick up my truck.
I was shown the engine. WOW, does not do enough justice as to what I saw. I literally thought the truck had just been finished by Toyota and it was 1981 all over again!!!!! The drive home was AMAZING!!! My truck drove so smooth and the engine never felt so strong.
You see, this truck is very special to me. It was my Grandfather’s truck and it was given to me when he passed away 8 years. So there are a lot of memories for me in this truck.
I cannot express enough how much the work of Moises and Cerrillos meant to me. Please share my extreme happiness/joy/satisfaction in the OUTSTANDING job they did on my grandfathers truck. I know he is looking down at me and smiling to see his little red truck still going strong. I would recommend your company to anyone who would ask me about auto repair. Please pass on the biggest “atta boy” to Moises and Cerrillos. They are both HUGE assets to your company.” ~ Rene J. Mendoza II ★★★★★
