Located in the middle of a long string of auto shops on San Pablo Avenue, Berkeley Minicar has quietly gained a reputation for honest, reliable car repair. Not only does it do the job right, it leaves its loyal customers feeling like they've been treated like human beings, not walking ATMs. Women, in particular, give it high ratings for recommending and explaining repairs without condescension or obfuscation. It's even been known to fix only what's wrong -- without fuss or added expense. And where other garages would see an easy way to charge for an hour of labor, some satisfied customers report that really quick fixes, like getting a stuck window to move again, are done on the house. So what's the catch? Well, Berkeley Minicar only fixes Hondas. No, it doesn't even touch those glorified Hondas known as Acuras. This makes Berkeley Minicar a godsend for Honda owners, who tend to drive their trusty vehicles until they'll drive no more (or get stolen). For everyone else, Berkeley Minicar is either a reason to be jealous or a reason to consider getting a Honda next time you're in the market for a new set of wheels.
