    Jacob and his team took great care of me. Had a tire sensor issue, they replaced and rotated a tire for me. Upon the rotation Jacob found that I had no wheel weights on my tire. He was kind enough to take care of the issue for me. Great service, great team and great prices!! Thank you Jacob for getting me back on the road safely. Thank you Sabrina for keeping me company while I wanted and making sure my vehicle was getting taken care of too!

    I usually do all my own automotive stuff, mostly because I've seen the aftermath of using cheap, bad mechanics. My oil plug was stopped at a random quick oil change shop and they didn't tell me, they just put blue Loctite on it and I only found this when I decided to do my own oil change. Trust is key, and Caliber is the only place I trust. The owner, Jacob, tells the truth and is fair in his pricing. What else do you want from your mechanic? I will always refer Caliber to anyone who needs work on their vehicle. Epic experience, a great digital assessment gets sent to you so you can see what they checked and what needs to be addressed. I brought it in for brakes and they told me it didn't need brakes, I've been to shops who would have sold me brakes, they aren't like that at Caliber. Thank you Jacob.

    One of the more pleasant experiences I've had with a auto mechanic. Wanted my 2002 Silverado brought back to life that was sitting for 1-2 years. I took it to a dealership and a few other places and was quoted enormous amounts and little explanations. However Caliber sent me a full diagnostic color-coded with urgent fixes and did it for about half the cost. They were fast, honest, and the owner even checks up with you after the work is done to make sure you are satisfied. Sabrina and Jacob were easy to work with. I've found a new spot to take my trucks and cars from now on. Thank you!

    I had Jacob and the gang at Caliber Automotive install a front end lift kit on my 2018 Ford F 250 super duty. The work was perfect and completed in a very timely manner. My truck was well cared for, not even a dirty fingerprint left behind. Being a mechanic my self I am very picky. For great work as well as fantastic customer care I absolutely recommend these guys. I am taking my truck back in for more work.

    These guys have worked on all my vehicles since I could drive and they have always been 100% honest and worked with me to get the job done correctly.

    My company uses Caliber so I thought I'd give them a try. The staff is so friendly and scheduling is always easy. I took my vehicle in a while back because i felt like it was loosing power, Jacob and his team diagnosed the issue and let me know that the issue should still be under warranty with the dealer. They fixed just enough for me to get my vehicle there safely. The staff is honest and always lets me know upfront what my charges will be and prioritizes what services I need for my car.

    When it comes to regular maintenance or any mechanical issues, I know I can trust the folks over at Caliber. They are efficient, skilled, and most importantly honest. I know I am not going to get a run-around and will leave feeling like my car has been in excellent hands. Would not take my Honda Fit anywhere else!
