Specialized Auto & Fleet is the best auto repair shop! They treat their customers with respect and are very thorough. I am thrilled with the level of service Aaron provided and will definitely be coming back! The 45 minute drive will not stop me from returning. Thank you for your hard work in satisfying your customers!

Specialized Auto is always friendly and reliable. I have trusted them to keep my 1998 Toyota 4-Runner running safely and smoothly for close to 100,000 miles, almost 10 years. We're planning on keeping it going for another 200,000 miles, which might be another 20 years!

They're good. They're competent. And they put up with me. They work on my CR-V. They work on my F-150. They work on my motorhome and all of my vehicles run well.

Specialized Auto replaced the starter on my BMW at a reasonable price. Aaron is knowledgeable and a honest communicator, explains everything in a easy to understand way. I would recommend Specialized Auto to anyone interested in working with the very Best auto repair team available. Added bonus, Specialized Auto washes your car for you when picked up. And offer shuttle service if needed. Service at it’s Best.

I love the service here. People are friendly. Work is good. They'll even wash the car. I found this shop through Subaru as the least expensive place to get my oil changed. I have since recommended it to others.

if i could give negative stars i would. I made an apt. for an oil change on my car. The day of the apt. I dropped off the car and made sure that they had the keys and reiterated that I just needed an oil change. When they heard that my car had more than 60,000 miles they told me that it was RECOMMENDED that I get a transmission flush, break fluid’s, Spark plugs, cabin filters, etc. I told them “no that’s fine ill just get the oil change for today.” About 35 minutes after I dropped off my car I get a call from the shop telling me that if I didn’t want to get the services done at the shop they didn’t want to change my oil. His words were “our shop stays running from maintenance services not just from changing oil.” I told them I just want an oil change I don’t have the money to get the rest of the services done, so they told me that they refused to change my oil. I stopped by within 5 minutes after I hung up and my car was still parked where and how I left it. When I went inside to pick up my car keys they told me “your car will be right out they are bringing it from the back” I told them, “my car is parked right where I left it, you guys didn’t even look at it before you started recommending extra services.” They just looked at each other and gave me my car keys. NEVER AGAIN WILL I GO BACK. They will tell you need services that you don’t really need just to make money. I took my car in to another shop that same day and they told me my car was fine and that an oil change was sufficient maintenance.

My car kept having so many engine troubles, so I went to find good mechanics ASE certified. They helped get my car fixed in like four work days and now it runs smoother. Will go back to them again for any other troubles.

Great Shop. Very profesional. I use to do all the maintenance on my own cars because I couldn't find a shop that I trusted around town but these guys have got it down. Really good service and staff, very helpful. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

So I decided to take my c230 in for some codes I was getting. First visit they diagnose possible bad sensors for the timing chain so I pay 300. After driving the car a couple of days I get the check engine light again. I take it in again and again they say other sensors need to be replaced. So after keeping my car for over 4 days to change 4 sensors that supposibly have something to do with keeping the timing right I get my car back. After all this I end up paying 1000 dollars for these sensors. So today when picking up my car they said that nothing was fixed and that they need to look further into what might be causing the codes. They quote me 7000 dollars! During this whole time I'm searching for problems with my car and I find out that these cars had an issue with the gears that turn the timing chain. Gears weren't casted correctly by Mercedes. So this issue is known but Specialized Auto and Fleet decide to get as much money from me as possible. And after getting home and checking my car I see that only 2 sensors were replaced and I still got charged full price. Now after talking with Mercedes they inform me that the issue is common with my model and I need to take it in for them to go in there with the camera to see how bad the gears are runned down. They quote me 180 for this. At Specialized I get quoted 400. They are just after the money so I suggest taking your business elsewhere.

I have been taking my cars & motorhome to Specialized Auto & Fleet, 2114 Freedom Blvd, Freedom, CA 95019 for many years and will continue to do so. They are the most knowledgeable mechanics around Santa Cruz as far as I am concerned. The reason I first started taking my cars to them is because they were always fixing problems that nobody else could figure out. Furthermore, I think they know more about motor homes than the actual motorhome mechanics in the area. They are always very friendly & courteous. They always wash your car when they are done. They have a courteous shuttle & will take you to where you need to go &/or pick you up. The managers are always very fair and easy to talk to. Whatever may be wrong with your car, or motorhome, is always explained in detail & thoroughly. Specialized is no more expensive than any of the other shops, but even if they were, at least you would know it was done right.

I have been a customer at specialized for 20 years and I wouldn’t go anywhere else. No matter what car issue I have had it has been fixed promptly and reasonably priced . At the Freedom Store where I currently go I can wait at the Starbucks for my oil change or get a ride home and back for a larger service. The staff is friendly and make you feel at ease over any car issue. Plus they wash your car before pick up!

We were driving through town when we had unexpected car troubles. Rick was able to help us identify the issue, give sound advice ablut where to get it fixed (since we were on a time crunch and he didn't have the part), and let us know what to expect price wise. He definitely did not have to help us at all and was super friendly and helpful.

2018: Excellent service, very friendly and helpful - beyond what is normally expected. I purchased my first Volvo from Specialized and they did all servicing on it. Was so impressed, I purchased a second Volvo and they have been servicing it as well. Quality of work is above standard and the level of helpfulness is outstanding. 8-10-15: Still impressed with Specialized after all these years. Now that they service American cars as well as imports, anyone can take their car there to be serviced. Excellent customer relations and very high quality of work.
