I have been going here for so many years (both of our cars) that I can’t remember! . They are the best…

Jerry Madison

AAA (Auto Club) was running a lube and oil change special. Joy Automotive was a listed facility. I took in 4 automobiles and each one got five star treatment including tire wear, battery check, brakes, hoses and belts, etc. etc.

Sergio was my service advisor and he was terrific in explaining the immediate needs and the near and long term needs on each vehicle. I couldn’t be more pleased. I highly recommend them.

Amy Y

Although I am new to Joy Automotive, they came highly recommended. I appreciated that Jesse took the time to explain what the problem was and what Joy Automotive was going to do. Also liked that the actual mechanic was sensitive to what else my auto was “telling” him.

Ashley Schaffner

I’ve been bringing my car to Joy Automotive for years, and for a reason! The staff is always knowledgable and never pushy, not to mention that they always go out of their way to provide you with as much information and guidance as they can. The work is always solid, and I really love bringing my car somewhere where I’m not just another Joe Schmoe off the street to the staff.

Tom Overmire

As with each time before with any of our cars, the service was done professionally and in a timely manner. In addition, in these difficult times, the team takes extra care to clean and sanitize the vehicle before returning to the customer. THE BEST!!!

It’s what you dream an independent car repair place would be. Clear explanations, Good communication. Super friendly. You never feel they are trying to sell you anything unnecessary.

Joy Automotive has always done an excellent job with repairs to my car. I have used them for years and highly recommend them as they are honest, stand by their repairs, are AAA recommended, and do great work!

Camila Villareal

I had one of my brake lights out and they were able to take my car in and get the light switched out before I had to go into work at 8:30am. They were so nice!! It felt like coming to your older brothers friends’ shop. They felt like family in some way.

Charley Worley

Was able to get my SUV in on Saturday morning , before heading out Sunday morning for a 350 mile road trip (1 way). They did the service, found I needed rear brakes done too, and handle everything by noon. Felt safe enjoying beautiful Highway 1. Thanks Joy!

Michael Duggan
