Oceanworks Berkeley in Berkeley offered me the best I could ask for. Transparency and honesty, not too common in car maintenance and service, are the initial reason for my recommendation. With consistent pricing policies, patience and willing to explain every detail I asked about, to high standard and quality in results, after several years of total satisfaction I feel confidant to recommend Oceanworks Berkeley . The common changes in engineering are the reason to access the manufacturer's data. I saw the time and attention Oceanworks Berkeley invests in learning the specific issues for my car rather than treating it as a generic situation. The records of all my Subaru's past services are kept and I am prompted on line regarding regular and special maintenance schedules, as recommended by Subaru. However, the need to replace or perform procedures is determined by checking the actual condition of a part or system, and not just because it is on the Suabru list. In that way I saved money and avoided unnecessary waste. As a 69 years "old" client, I've seen a few options in car-care, and feel lucky to have found my best.
