I am very impressed with Argonaut Garage. Long story short I was afraid I had purchased a lemon and had a few issues... with my new van that were intermittent, very hard to diagnose, and potentially made the vehicle unsafe on the road. I was terrified I just lost 10K on a bad decision. Argonaut went the whole nine yards to figure out the issues, test and retest the safety of the vehicle, and they had excellent communication and customer service throughout a considerably lengthy and stressful process. If you've got a complicated situation and need to know you're in good hands then I would highly recommend Argonaut Garage. Thanks again Jason and Hussein!read more

I wrote a review earlier but I don’t think I was logged in so I don’t know if it went through but when I first... bought my ls400 and took it to Jason he told me I definitely needed a new air filter of some sort(I can’t remember the exact name of it) and I told him I couldn’t afford it right now and I’d come back in a week or so and when I came to pick my car up he showed me the filter he took out which was filthy and told me he put a new one in free of charge. (It was about a $375 fix and he said he didn’t want me out on the road with the filter I currently had). After that I knew I found a good mechanic and to put it short if you want a honest mechanic who clearly explains what he’s doing to your car and prioritizes the customer over the profit come to Jason at Argonaut. Also all the other people working there are really nice and clearly care about the customer and making you feel comfortable leaving your car with them.read more

I found the staff friendly, professional, knowledgeable and straightforward. They have a system of documenting the... condition of the car with photographs which makes it easy to understand and track problems. I highly recommend this garage.read more

They were coronavirus aware. Felt safe. Did a good job on replacing the cabin filter in my Tesla model 3. Did a safety... inspection afterward, shop policy. Very good value. Friendly and competent staff.read more

I asked Argonaut garage to squeeze me in for a post purchase inspection of my Dodge Dakota with which I was planning to... pull a big heavy trailer full of all of my - mostly extraneous - stuff to NM. They identified what I thought to be the case; my shocks/struts were pretty much shot. They also diagnosed several problems with my brakes that added up to a potentially dangerous situation when towing. Being a "cowboy" ( I like the sound of that better than knucklehead - not that I think Cowboys are necessarily knuckleheads) I told them I probably drive real slow and careful and do it anyway. Dylan, rather than saying "Don't be a knucklehead!" found a way to further squeeze and get me on the schedule before the weekend.Super professional, genuinely nice and really concerned about the details which is the difference between a good job and a great job.I'm starting to plan my next visit to the Bay Area around my truck's scheduled maintenance.read more

I always am happy bringing my car here. Jason and company are very attentive and thoughtful. Prices are reasonable and... the work is thorough. I especially appreciate the time they take to explain why they suggest a certain repair. Cabot recommend highly enough.read more

Jason's knowledge of cars is top-notch and so is his communication. My car has always been reliable while in his care,... which gives me great peace of mind. Highly recommend!read more

Jason and the Argonauts are the best mechanics I've ever had. I've been taking my cars to them for 7 years and trust... them completely. They started out with a small workshop in the gas station at Kensington on The Arlington and then they grew and now have a bigger workshop on San Pablo. I refer all my friends to them and Jason is really helpful and knows his stuff. I highly recommend them for all your services and repairs. Jason even loaned me his personal vehicle once when my break's needed fixing and I had somewhere to be!read more

Very impressed with Argonaut. They're conscientious and thorough, and the owner is hands-on. The crew did a tune-up of... my Honda at 60,000 miles, and now it runs so much more smoothly -- like a different car. Appreciate all the attention and hard work. Very reasonably priced.read more

I appreciate that this shop is trustworthy and is very professional in communication with me, despite my lack of... technical understanding of auto mechanics. They never man-splain and always use images of my car’s problems to document the car’s wear and tear in their electronic maintenance records. I’m grateful for their top level professionalism and excellent customer service. Jason has always provided me with options as far as replacement parts go, and had worked to keep our costs as economical as possible. We have had 5+ years and two Toyota’s worth of experience to support our review. They stand behind their work and have always been accountable. Thanks, Argonauts!read more

I had a really positive experience - they're friendly and don't talk down to you like some other mechanics can do. Work... done wasn't necessarily cheap but seems high quality, and when it took longer than expected they paid for a hire car which really impressed me. I also didn't feel pressured and Jason took time to explain to me what was critical vs. what could wait. Will be coming back for future maintenance!read more

My husband and I both bring our cars to Argonaut for servicing. We have known Jason for years and have complete trust... in him. The work is always first rate and the prices are very reasonable. He never tries to sell you anything you don’t need. His staff is great too - friendly, relaxed and very helpful!read more

We brought the used 2005 Toyota Matrix we had just bought to Jason at Argonaut. The experience was very pleasant and... informative. Ended up getting a thorough inspection and then selecting what work needed to be done. Jason was very helpful in talking through any questions and options. Never felt pressured. And walked out of there very happy with the improved state of the vehicle. Will be using them as our mechanic for this car.UPDATE: Another plus for Argonaut... after the initial repairs, we realized that something that had shown up on the inspection had not been included in the work order -- a simple oversight given all the things we were looking at and taking care of. Jason at Argonaut was determined to straighten it out ASAP. We brought the car in and they replaced the battery while we waited (not long). This garage has won our business.read more
