  • I would recommend this business

Highly recommend! I trust Eureka Brake & Automotive much more than anywhere else, and we will definitely take our cars there again in the future. I was phoned and emailed after they diagnosed the problem.

They prepared a long list of maintenance suggestions for my 13-year-old car, but did not pressure me at all. Since my diagnosis and repair required an overnight, they provided me a loaner car and offered to help transfer everything into it (including baby, stroller, 2 car seats). I even forgot my gift certificate at home, but they let me apply it to my payment anyway. I feel like they are trustworthy so they trusted that I wasn't lying about the gift amount. (I mailed the certificate afterwards anyway). They work they did solved the problems, which was the most important thing.

They might not be the lowest priced service around, but after experiencing their trustworthiness, friendliness, and unexpected helpfulness (the loaner car was a lifesaver for me and the kids!)

Customer Testimonials

Lacee and Steve were absolutely wonderful, personable, caring and helpful when my out of state van broke down while my family was on vacation. They took the time to allow us to sort out what we should do without any pressure at all. They listened to me and explained everything in a way that was clear. Their diagnostics were right on! If I am ever in need of automotive services in Eureka again. Eureka Brake and Automotive is the only place I will go. What a stellar way to run a business! Thank you so much!

Joyce and I have always enjoyed the services that you have provided for our vehicles. Glen is an extremely knowledgeable and experienced mechanical service man and he is the only mechanic that we ever want to work on our truck or car. Your entire staff has also been friendly and courteous.

I received a copy of a complimentary notice from our member Ellis Williamson informing us of your facility's professional and courteous attention and service. Relatively few customers take time to acknowledge a job well done. We are very proud of your continuous quality work extended to the AAA members. A satisfied customer always recommends an excellent repair facility. Keep up the good work and best wishes for your continued success.

I have only one regret regarding Eureka Brake & Automotive and that is I found them only 13 years ago. Over these years they have serviced all types of my vehicles, keeping them running in the best possible shape. They understand the appropriate maintenance and follow my different requests to keep expenses down and to keep my pick-up, commuter beaters and sports cars running to my complete satisfaction.

Steve and Lacee's Business Model should be taught at Harvard Business school: Be honest, do what you say you will do, keep costs down, be reliable, be friendly... and customers will gladly come back. As a local high school teacher I recommend to all my students and their families that if they seek an honest, reliable, dependable, accurate and appropriate mechanic - Eureka Brake and Auto is the only place in town.
