Joe a little rough around the edges but awesome! Did my work for exactly what it was, unlike the people in Rio Dell that let me drive with a disabled vehicle! Trust these guys!

Joe was very upfront and honest. I really appreciated that he was concerned about cleanliness. He sprayed down my car with Lysol before he worked. Also, he quoted me $400 for the job and it was done early and only ended up costing $225. Ill never go anywhere else. I am extremely satisfied.

Friendly, knowledgeable, trustworthy and efficient service. I came in for an oil change and was very pleased. He also took the time to look my car over for obvious impending safety or mechanical concerns, but by no means appeared to be looking to sell me on added services. Bonus points for a well mannered friendly shop dog. I will definitely return here if I need anything else done while I am in this area.

I am new to town, a single mother who relocated here from New York a few months ago. It is extremely valuable to have a mechanic I can trust. I swung by Joe Mellos shop when my cars check engine light had been on for a while and the car was doing some strange things. Joe promptly took the time to give me and the car careful attention and began to assess the problem. Joe and his staff did quality diagnostic work and have found some issues that need to be addressed. I am happy to begin a good relationship with a long-time, trusted provider in the community. Thank you, Joe and staff!

I have used Joes auto for over 10 years and have been extremely pleased. Joe does great work and stands behind it. He is honest as they come and wont take the job if he cant do it right. Highly recommend him.

First few visits were good experiences, the last few were not so good. Left with a broken truck after two tries. At least its an older truck Im getting rid of...

My old Toyota Tacoma isnt pretty. But shes been paid for for almost 20 years and Im going to keep driving her thanks to Joe. Id always gone to the dealer in Eureka, but the last few times it was like they didnt want to work on a truck that old and kept hinting that I should go look at something newer on their lot. Then when my radiator hose failed while I was in Arcata, a friend suggested I call Joe. My Tacoma was a couple of mile from his shop (all the fluid had come out and I didnt want to drive it) and he came out to where I was parked, diagnosed the problem, went and got a new hose and came back with tools to fix it on the spot! Thats service.Since then I always go to Joe. Hes replaced my clutch (for way less than the dealer quoted), fixed my window crank, done my tune-ups and oil changes, fixed a leak in my differential. And best of all, I get to visit his precious dog Kazzi when Im there. Shes the best pooch and Joe is the best wrench.

VERY GREEDY!! Took my car in to get a new set of brakes and he wanted way to much money for them, so I told him I was going to go somewhere else. He then CHARGED ME 20$ for him putting my car up on the lift to look at my brakes. Money hungry smiley glad hand if you ask me. Oh and before we even talked about a price he explained to me that if the brakes or roaders malfunctioned, its not his fault and that I would have to pay for everything to get redone myself. He definitely covers his hind on making sure he gets all of his money!p.s. the dog had NO water in water bowl.. gave the sweet pooch some of my own

Review №21

Absolute worst mechanic in town. Could not recall any details about the repairs he made to my vehicle, was actively rude to customers while at the shop. Seems like an amateur mechanic despite his age

Joe took care of our busted oil pan super quick and literally came in $200 less expensive than another local shop.

Review №25

So this doesn’t even deserve a 1 Star.... it deserves 0 stars.... I came in for an oil change, and my oil pan ended up becoming cracked, but it wasn’t before... also, he was also very rude and when I went back to complain he didn’t know what I was talking about. Also tried saying he didn’t do an oil change on my type of car.. also didn’t give a receipt either..
