what our customers are saying

Customer Garrett Walther and John Jr

From Click and Clack’s website

“John Volz and Bill Greenman are kind, informative and dedicated to watching out for their customers’ wallets and safety. If they spot a needed repair they will discuss strategy with the customer about how to schedule the repair in the most affordable manner (e.g., is it safe to wait until the next minor or major service). They also work hard to make their shop as “green” as possible and they generously support many local nonprofits and schools.”

“Thumbs up for John Volz at Volz Bros., in Nevada City, CA. I wouldn’t take my car anywhere else.

They are friendly and cheerful, making each customer feel personally cared for. It’s actually a pleasure to go there!

Service is quick and reliable, my car is fixed right the first time, and I feel safe driving.

After years of sorting through questionable, unhappy and reluctant mechanics around the country, I am SO relieved to have found Volz Bros.!  Whew! Here are people who know what they’re doing, do it well and seem enthusiastic about it.

Before finding Volz Bros., my ’96 Subaru had a list of issues that no one, even a supposed Subaru specialist, had been willing (or able?) to repair. A friend recommended Volz Bros (the only place she’ll take her Toyota), and they had every problem fixed in one day at half the price quoted by others and with a lot of little extras thrown in at no charge.

My car feels happy, safe and cared for.

If you’re looking for a good place to take your car, Volz Bros. is it.”

“Volz Bros. has cared for all EIGHT of my family’s Subarus since the early 1980’s.  I have relied on them for honest advice, reliable service, and the occasional rescue over the years.  They are community oriented, environmentally conscious, and know my cars inside and out. I have only the highest regard for their professionalism and friendship. They’re like part of our extended family.”

“John and Bill are the ulitmate professionals. They have a great reputation for a reason. Thanks for all of your help over the years, you guys rock!”

“As a used car dealer there are a lot of companies we could take our vehicles to for service and repairs. We have chosen Volz Bros. Automotive because of their reputation for honesty. For over twenty years they have been checking over our vehicles prior to sale to make sure nothing is missed or overlooked.  A lot of dealers want to get their vehicles in and out of the shop as inexpensive as possible and because of this they might be tempted to cut corners. Not us, we start with the best vehicles we can find and then give them to Volz Bros. to make them even better.”

“My dad has been taking his cars to Volz Brothers since I was a kid. So when it came to buying a car, a major factor for my husband and I was making sure we bought a model that Volz Brothers specializes in (we went with a Subaru). Their service is quick, their customer service is friendly and although they can be a little expensive it is totally worth it. I have never felt like they were talking down to me when explaining anything to me about my car (I’m a young woman and I’ve had this awful experience at other car repair places multiple times). They’re very honest and straightforward and out of all the work done on cars owned by us and our family there has NEVER been any shoddy work done on any of our cars. It’s all excellent. I feel like I can trust them completely with my cars and I will only buy cars in the future that Volz Brothers is certified in (Subarus, Toyotas, Mazdas, Hondas are the ones I can think of without calling to check). They’re awesome and I wouldn’t take my car anywhere else!”
