John D. from Thousand Oaks, CA, whose Toyota was in for an auto repair service, on 7/13/2014:
"Preferred Auto Center has provided me with almost 30 years of reliable, consistent service to all my vehicles. They have always stood by their work and never recommended unnecessary repairs."

Kathryn D. from Newbury Park, CA, whose Lexus was in for an auto repair service, on 7/11/2014:
"That your shop provides super customer service and super quality work. Although I am a returning customer, I am still so pleased to find my car not only repaired or service thoroughly completed, but it is sparkly clean as well! I know I can trust you and that you only do what is needed. I also appreciate the fact that you have a loaner car available when necessary."

Jim Z. on 7/10/2014:
"Thorough and fair. After getting a quote for a blown engine from my Jeep Dealer I decided to get a second opinion from Preferred. The result was the same - a blown engine and I was referred back to Jeep. However, it was also suggested that I contact Jeep Corp describing my situation and that sometimes Jeep Corp will cough up money to help pay for the expense. In my case, Jeep offered to pay 75% of a new engine. Had Preferred not given me the 2nd opinion and the suggestion to contact Jeep Corp, I would have paid the entire bill since my car was out of warranty. Thanks for the advice!"

Patrick S. from Moorpark, CA, whose Toyota was in for an auto repair service, on 7/8/2014:

"Anthony was very helpful, made his recommendations and did not pressure me to have additional work done on my car. He also assured me that the work that I would need for factory recommendations can hold until the next service (which helps with the tight December budget). I spoke with Mark prior to bringing my car into service as the dealership I went to closed up in thousand oaks. He is cordial and I have the sense that customer service leads his business. Yelp gave great reviews as well."

Kim T. from Thousand Oaks, CA, whose Jeep was in for an auto repair service, on 12/20/2013:
"I found out about this place from my neighbor and Yelp reviews. so far my first impression is good, nice clean shop and friendly mechanic that shuttled me home.

At this time I plan on bringing my other car in for service and since my car is going out of warranty I won't be going back to the dealer for service."

They identified the problem quickly (unfortunately a cracked radiator), got the parts, repaired it and had me on my way in a few hours. I didn't have time to shop around for comparative prices at the time, but after checking into it afterwards, I'm comfortable with the fact that they were more than fair with the price they charged. All in all, it was a very pleasant experience, considering the circumstances."

I would definitely recommend them."

Johns on 3/26/2013:
"I went to Preferred when my transmission was slipping. The first estimate was $2200, the second a day later was $3200. The last with different excuses was $4200. The really annoying thing is that I keep getting, by email, rewards announcements that I'm only 253 points away from a certificate. Also after getting my car back I stopped into the transmission shop a half a block away and got an estimate for replacing the radiator and the transmission for $2800. When the last estimate came over the phone the service tech said he "called" around to other transmission shops and the best they could do was $4600. Oh I forgot... After I picked it up the trans was still slipping. So I took it back and to their credit they gave me a rental car for two days and replaced the transmission sensor they missed the first time. I've been holding this frustration inside for six months, thanks for allowing me to vent, John Sayer"

Anthony and Mark, I like that you keep my car in good running order but I don't know if I can afford the kindness of rotating my tires and checking the brakes when I only hope for a mere lube and oil job. We only had about $35 set aside for the visit. Also I wish you would respond to my occasional question of what value are the 'points' I accumulate. What is the value of a Free Reward Cert? Our meager Social Security income welcomes and appreciates any and all coupons and points we can muster. And Thanks, Anthony for the swing tire I requested for my grand kids.

we will only take our cars to Preffered auto We don't need to be scared of getting ripped off anymore
WE know they're telling us the truth with reasonable charges
Our daughters car engine was ready to blow up and Mark told us it wasn't worth repairing who does that? if we had taken it to the dealership I know it would of been thousands of dollars later and her transmission was next to go,
Thank you so much"

I am very pleased with their service!"

They are the best value out there. I can't recommend them enough."

Mark and his crew had been taking excellent care of my car from day one; could they set "my baby" right? Yes, indeed. They located and fixed the culprits, the air/fuel ratio sensors. Actually saved me many dollars by working hard to re-thread the exhaust manifold thereby not having to remove it. GREAT WORK! Thank you!"

I brought the list along to my appointment at Preferred Auto and discovered.....as I had thought.....that many items were unnecessary, had just been done or were NOT needed. I was VERY pleased with the attention to all the details mentioned and to the complete review of all the car needs while at Preferred Auto. The repairs were completed quickly and correctly and I feel very confident in placing all my car repair decisions in the hands of Preferred Auto."

Suzannes on 2/9/2012:
"My mom has been going to Mark for over 10 years. My warranty on my Nissan finally expired and I needed a mechanic. I dropped my car off after talking to Anthony on the phone. Both Anthony and Mark called me to keep me apprised of my car's status and they found all the same issues that the dealer had recommended. They were super-thorough, very honest about what needed to be done and what could wait and Mark did his best to save me money. The dealer had mentioned that I had a bent wheel and that it would cost $600 to replace. Crazy!! Mark found a used wheel for $60. So, wow!! As long as I live in Thousand Oaks (and maybe even when I move) I'm going to always take my car to Mark. Oh, he also had my car washed before returning it!! Who does that anymore other than the dealership (sometimes)??
Last, just 2 days after I picked up my car he mailed a thank you card and gift to my mom as a thank you for referring me. So talk about nice guy and above and beyond customer service, it really just doesn't get any better. I highly recommend Preferred Auto Centre. This place is a gem!"

Everyone was very helpful and gave me constant updates about the situation concerning my vehicle. I really appreciate all of the extra effort they put into making sure my car was fixed correctly, efficiently and thoughtfully.

Pricing was also very reasonable. I can't imagine going to another mechanic or auto shop in the Thousand Oaks area and getting such a fair deal on my repair."
