My car is my baby and I love taking it to a place where the people all know what's going on and what they're all talking about. Pat's is such a place. Everyone here is super freaking nice and they all are genuinely interested in you and your automobile. They don't give you a run around, they don't give you long winded "recommendations" they just wrench on your car, tell you what's wrong (should there be something wrong) and tell you how they'll fix it. Truly hassle free mechanic. Best part is they fairly recently starting servicing Subarus. I will take my Subie no where else.

Gotta like Pat's Garage. They do a good job with 1993 Honda Civic EX and keep it running. I want to keep that car going for a long time to come.

I took my Honda here for about five years while i lived in SF. Pat's is the best garage I have found in the whole city. Here is why:1. They are honest, A rarity in garages these days.2. They take the time to explain problems. How many times have you forked over $400 or more and not really known what they are fixing in your car? Not at Pats. Plus they'll honestly recommend what you neeed to fix ASAP.3. Tthey fix carsRIGHT the first time. They are knowledgeable and they know Japanese cars inside/out. Bottom line is: You could shop around and find a slightly cheaper mechanic but beware! Pat's is worth it if you want a mechanic you can trust and you want to keep your car running smoothly. And for me, that is truly peace of mind.

Pat's is awesome. I've been taking my Honda here for about two years now and have found them to be knowledgeable, quick, fun and honest. Augie is a kick -- he sounds like he's straight out of Car Talk and gets really excited about getting to the bottom of suspicious noises.Some reasons I think Pat's is top notch:1. They give detailed and honest information about what's going on and what your options are.2. When my car failed smog because of a slightly off timing belt, they readjusted it for free and offered to talk to the test-only station about how to test properly for my car.3. When my car was in need of body work, they referred me to another excellent place, Giannini's, where Mike and Lisa took care of everything, helped me navigate the insurance process, and made my car shiny and new again.4. They're environmentally conscious. And they do hybrids now, so when my trusty car finally dies and I get one, I can still take it to Pat's.5. They're walking distance to the 22nd street Caltrain station. If you commute south it's easy to drop your car off on the way to work and pick it up on your way home. Lovely.

Honest, and very competent, but expensive. I also do not like dealing with Augie who treats me like a child abuser if I neglect performing certain maintenance on my car. Pat is a very liberal guy, and he runs one of the greenest shops in San Francisco. If they were a little cheaper, and I didn't have to deal with Augie, they would get 5 stars

Pat's Garage is a Honda specialist. The people are friendly and knowledgeable (and yes, there really is a Pat; he's the owner). Their office is comfy and unpretentious, and if you go on a Friday, you'll get to play with the cutest, friendliest little black pomeranian (she's only there on Fridays) in the world! Pat's Garage does all my oil changes and regular maintenance. They're extremely honest and will explain any problems and all your options to you in layman's terms! Other Yelpers have mentioned Auggie-- in my experience, Auggie is kind of blunt and direct... sure, he's not the concierge at the Four Seasons Hotel; he's not "smooth".But I personally like him and don't find him abrasive.

Fast. Friendly. Professional. These guys fixed a problem in under 24 hours that SF auto works couldn't figure out in almost a week AND it only wound up costing me $250. Apparently they're the most knowledgeable about Hondas in the city.

I'm yet to pick my permanent mechanic here in SF, despite having lived here for 9 years. I gave Pat's the business this week when I needed a pre-purchase inspection on my fly new ride.The place has a good vibe, they processed paperwork efficiently, and called me with the results very quickly. The items found were communicated to me in a decent manner and I feel confident that I'm aware of the condition of the car.The only knock against them is price - $150 for a PPI is expensive. I'll take the new car to them for it's next service, at which point I'll come back to this review.

I love Pat's garage. The first car I ever bought was a subaru wagon. I loved that car, and Pats helped take good care of her. Everyone there is so friendly and nice, and honest. I completely trust them and wholehearted recommend them to anyone. I ran into one of their mechanics on the street last week and I give her a big hug. I recently sold the subaru and bought a Volvo, and had a moment of sadness knowing that I wouldn't be back at Pat's anytime soon because they don't do Volvos.

One of Pat's guys, Rich Young, is a mechanical genius. He can fix anything and does so with a passion so it's not even like work for him. If you asked him the Office Space question of what would he do with a million dollars? - his answer would be to work on cars. He is the Criss Angel - Mindfreak of auto mechanics in how he will just amaze you with his encyclopedia of knowledge on everything Honda, Hybrid, Subaru, Paintball gun, and Filipino food.
