The shop is the best. Great work and good people. They have been my exclusive shop since 2006. They handle all my needs, both streetrod and personal suv. I won't take my business anywhere else. Thank you.
These guys are great! They know what they are doing and they pride themselves in having good communication so you don’t think one thing and get surprised by another. Everyone there has a passion for what they do! If you need any maintenance, repair or modifications done on your vehicle I highly recommend you call them first! I am 59 yo and have lived in this area all my life, there are not many shops I trust but I do trust them!
Fantastic Service! Wonderful to have a place with people I can trust

Great service! Didn’t even take the full 2 hours and was not charged for the whole amount of Freon, as they had only needed to use half the can. Called to verify if I should check for a leak on the A/C since it was noted on the invoice. The individual that assisted me was honest about whether or not it was necessary. It goes to show what type of business they are and the honest feedbacks they provide for their customers. Definitely would come back for service and would recommend!

This was my first time at Total Performance. The staff was very friendly and explained the results and recommendations very clearly. I am going back to get their recommendations completed.

I just got an oil change / 30k service here for my F-150. Pretty simple but they got me in quicker than the dealership could. They knew the vehicle requirements and used the manufacturer recommended oil type. Saved me about $200 compared to the dealer (I did the air filters myself at home). Also worked around my aftermarket drain plug, and used it correctly (unlike the dealer). Would go back here again in a heartbeat when needed.
I went to this auto shop expecting the worst and walked away with the best. They are more than amazing. Worked with me on price. Fixed everything that needed to be fixed and also were the most kind and polite people I have ever talked to. They genuinely gave me a peace of mind for me and my son's safety. We had broke down on the freeway after buying my car and they inspected it and fix the crank shaft position sensor and timing belt along with some other minor things. I love this shop and wil...
