Pat is the best! I have never experienced a more friendly, fair, flexible, and kind mechanic! He explained in detail what was wrong with my car and waited patiently as I asked a million questions. He was always available to talk whenever I called, never made me feel like an idiot, and wasn't at all patronizing (a seemingly common car mechanic technique in my experience).Last year when I needed a new battery, Pat was right there at my service and I was able to get my car back within a few hours. After a recent incident, I decided that I wanted to try and learn some new skills and replace my radiator on my own. Pat was gracious and understanding, and even offered to answer any questions over the phone about the process if I needed any help along the way!Pat really puts his blood, sweat, and heart into this company. I guarantee you will be taken care of if you bring your vehicle here!

Best Shop in San Francisco. I have taken my car to All American Automotive for seven years. Pat has always been a complete professional. The prices are fair and the work is always done right and they take the time to answer my questions. I recommend my family and friends.

Brought my 2004 Audi in for a smog check which should have passed except for an unrelated check engine light which caused an automatic fail. I was disappointed at having to pay the full price initially, but when I brought my car back for the certificate two weeks later (after resolving the check engine light issue), Pat ran my smog check and only charged me the cost of the certificate itself! He and his mechanics were friendly, candid, and treated me with respect unlike many other mechanics who assume females don't know anything about cars. I will bring my car back here the next time I need any work done. It's hard finding mechanics I feel that I can trust.

I took my Chevy here about a year ago when the water pump broke and I needed a rattling bracket fixed. They did excellent work and charged a very reasonable amount (which I know because I shopped around). They also showed me a crack in my exhaust pipe that I was completely unaware of.Recently, I took my car back to have the exhaust system fixed along with some electrical problems. I had also complained about the shocks and thought they needed replacing. A more unscrupulous mechanic would have probably just replaced the shocks and exhaust system, but they informed me that the shocks were fine and that just the pipe could be replaced. They fixed both issues and charged me under $300 total. They even told me my brake pads look good. I consider Patrik and his team to be honest and skilled mechanics and I highly recommend their shop.

Took my older 3/4 ton truck here for a pretty long list of repairs, ranging from mundane to extensive. Bela worked on my truck and I couldn't be happier with his work. One repair involved taking apart the entire dash assembly and later reinstalling all the various parts back together. Not one rattle after the repair was done, which is very impressive, given the age of the truck and the amount of parts that had to come off to facilitate changing the failed heater core. I even got a list of must fixes vs. should fixes. I'd recommend these guys. Ask for Bela, he knows his s*it and takes the time to explain everything to you.

My Subaru Legacy GT had severely warped rotors after a mere 30K miles and and I had brought my car to San Francisco Automotive Solutions as I assumed the rotors were bad, considering the low mileage on my car and how I have been very mindful about checking the brake pad thickness. After verifying the rotors were in fact warped, Pat explained how this is very common with Japanese performance cars because of how the rotors are engineered to be light for fuel economy and therefore marketing greenwashing rather than for longevity. When I consider the energy required to make steel I shudder to think how someone who purports to be eco-minded would make this call, but I digress. After replacing them with better grade but still reasonably priced rotors I found that after 9 months they were already starting to warble and I brought the car back assuming they had already warped. Sigh. Much to my surprise, He replaced them with the more expensive rotors that had features to help better prevent the warping in the future, and only charged me the difference in the part price! This is the kind of treatment that has kept me a customer of AAA for over 6 years and through 2 cars. I would stick my neck out to say this is a great shop with skilled and trustworthy people and that Pat is a man of integrity and runs his shop in kind.

i needed a smog check and i knew my car would pass with flying colors but i still had to do my due diligence on yelp to find a legit shop. i was warned about smog check places who'll lie & cheat their way to scam $60+ (and not include the smog cert) for a smog check so i called around for price quotes and found San Francisco Automotive Solutions. he promised the smog check w/ cert for $49.95 so i dropped off the car shortly after. it's not the cheapest i found but it was convenient. the cheapest shop had some shady reviews so i decided to save myself from the headache and paid the extra $9.95. i was told the smog check would take about 15 minutes so i went around the corner to whole foods and picked up a sandwich. i ate and waited at the shop. it took longer than 15 mins but definitely under 30, which was fine. overall, it was good cuz the guy was nice and honest about the total cost.

I brought my Nissan in because the AC wasn't blowing cold; it had been topped off last season elsewhere. I was a little leary from the couple of poor reviews but location was important to me. My opinion is there will always be someone who hates you on Yelp even if you're good most of the time. So I put my faith in the good reviews and headed in.My experience was similar to the other good reviews. Patrick was professional and made sure to explain things well. My work was done in a day and came with a 12 month warrantee
