A Scotts Valley Automotive Facility You Can Rely On

Good Work At A Reasonable Price

Hidden Valley Automotive Scotts Valley offers the fairest pricing in the area, and long-time clients truly know they are getting the best auto work for a reasonable price. As competitive as the auto service and repair industry has always been, Dick believes, past and present, their work speaks for themselves — and that's how new customers find them. An example of that good pricing is that if a job calls for four hours and they finish it in two, you'll will only be charged for two hours. It's rare you'll find that same neighborly pricing from other repair shops, certainly not at the dealer.

Shifting Problem Solved At Hidden Valley Automotive Scotts Valley

"Years back, Hidden Valley did a complete engine rebuild on my Porsche, and at a very fair price — it's great that they have their own machine shop. Recently, my Honda Accord developed a slight shifting problem. I thought I would need to go to a Scotts Valley transmission repair shop, but I thought I would first speak with Dick. Glad I did. First he did a test drive — they are known for diagnosing engine problems and transmission problems. They found the problem rather quickly. It was the solenoid pack that needed replacing, and it only cost me about $285. These guys are honest and great car mechanics!"
