Price, costumer service, and the work is great!I’ve had a lot of issues with my car and Petr hung in tough with all the twists and turns. When a yet another mystery issue came up with my car Petr worked with me to come up with a solution we both felt was fair. He is a great communicator, and an honest, respectful, and reliable mechanic.Every time I brought my car in here, even just for an oil change the service was above an beyond - Petr often couldn’t help but make sure everything he could see was in working order.I never felt like he was trying to up sell me on anything. He would explain the essential needs of my car and the potential future issues clearer and honestly.I was always treated with a lot of respect and I could tell by the attention and care to detail that Petr really puts his all into the cars he works on.I wish I had a Toyota so I could still bring my car into this place!

I decided to bring my sequoia here because of his informational videos on YouTube and great reviews. Petr was great to deal with. He was friendly, patient , honest (which is hard to find in the automotive industry) and never tried to sell me a service I didnt need. His attention to detail is impeccable and took the time to educate me on various maintenance related issues. I highly recommend Petr and I trust the work that he performs.

Petr is the best. Super nice guy. He is very honest and extremely knowledgeable. Prices are great too. If your running a Toyota in Humboldt I wouldnt go anywhere else. So stoked find him. Finally! My truck is soooo smooth now. Could not be happy

Petr is a fantastic Toyota mechanic. He is honest, thorough and pays close attention to detail. I also appreciate that he takes the time to explain what he has done and answers all my questions. As a woman, it is rare to be treated like this by professionals in male-dominated fields. I really appreciate his friendly and customer-oriented service.-Amber

Petr’s honesty and attention to detail was very much appreciated. He assessed the problem, gave me options, and did the work in a timely yet carefully meticulous manner that was very professional but with personal touch. Petr is very easy to talk to and wont rush you into making a decision. I left feeling confident that the work was done right at a fair value and felt good to support a small local business.

I stopped at a local business a few doors down from Foreign Auto Specialist Auto Repair and saw a gentleman outside and went to walk towards him and asked him if he works on VWs. He very abruptly and rudely said no and kept walking away. Not sure if he was judging me by my appearance or the vehicle my friend was driving but I have a brand new VW that I simply am looking for a good mechanic here locally to do services and such. I asked the neighboring business if that gentleman worked there and I was informed that he is owner. So I will never do business with him and do not recommend anyone else either. The gentleman needs to not be so rude!! Rudeness gets people no where in life!!

Great experience here! Always appreciate Petr’s honesty and transparency. He’s very knowledgeable and informative, I always learn something when I come to get work done here. I’ve been to mechanics before who barely explain what they did with the vehicle and I feel a bit blind. Petr always gives a very in depth explanation and genuinely cares. I leave feeling confident that the work was done very well and that I got a great deal. Very convenient location in Arcata as well, love supporting this local business!

The service was friendly and professional, the shop and office are clean the scheduling was easy and the prices very reasonable. Petr saved me a lot of money by avoiding unnecessary parts and procedures that others would have charged for. If you are looking for fair, honest, and professional service on your Toyota car or truck or your Subaru vehicle, then contact this mechanic in Arcata , CA

Petr is an outstanding auto technician! He has been repairing my car for over 10 years and takes good care of all my vehicles. I appreciate the time he takes in explaining the repairs, showing me the broken parts, and always does a little something extra like vacuum my car or fill up all my fluids, etc. Hes the best and highly recommend his services!

Review №10

I highly recommend Petr! He went through my car with a fine tooth comb. He let me know what my car needed as well as what looked good. He gave me a very fair quote before starting any work. He is very honest and personable. He also has a very large YouTube following for his DIY home car repairs.

Review №11

Petr goes above and beyond expectations. His prices are fair, he does excellent quality work and I completely trust him with my vehicle.After having an warning light come in my car, I took it to multiple shops including the dealship who could not figure out why the light was on.After an hour with Petr, the problem was addressed and fixed. With that kind of expertise I will not go anywhere else.

Review №12

Petr was thorough, friendly, accommodating, and transparent. He berated me like a father for not taking better care of my car, and clearly laid out my Subarus problems and what could be done to fix them now and in the future. I would recommend him to anyone with a Subaru or Toyota in the Arcata area.
