READ WHY CUSTOMERS LOVE AUTOMOTIVE MAINTENANCE MACHINE IN WALNUT CREEK, CA!
Sam made it possible to put my 59 Thunderbird back on the road again! He is fair and honest.
Came in for a pre-purchase inspection. Sam helped me out with a thorough and relatively cheap job. He didn't just tell me what was wrong with the car, but he actually showed me, explained how some problems could affect me in the future, and gave me some estimates of what I should expect. I ended up buying the car and used some of those estimates to help negotiate the price. It's a little sad that some people won't find this place straight from googling "Pleasant hill auto mechanics" because it doesn't show up. For the people who do see it, I recommend this shop.
I have an RV that I needed to get fixed up to sell. Before I could even come down, Sam was trying to help me trouble shoot problems on the phone and making sure I call manufacturer to see if any of the problems were covered by a warranty. Once I brought the RV in, he identified the problem with the batteries within a few hours and sent me on my way. He was exactly as described by other positive reviews; friendly, genuine, and very transparent about what he was doing to RV along the way. Highly recommended for any business you can do with him.

Have to add my accolades to Sam at Automotive Maintenance Machine. Last week I was in a pickle with my RV. No electricity. I phone several RV repair shops and no one could help me that same morning. (We wanted a same day appointment because we had paid reservations at a campground.)
Sam was the only mechanic I found who could accommodate me that same day. He diagnosed the problem and tried to get new batteries shipped to his shop but nothing was available until the following day. The next day he took the time to install the batteries for us.
His assistant, Karissa, is very pleasant and helpful, unlike the help at many other RV shops. Unfortunately there is a dearth of RV repair places in the bay area and I think the lack of competition has bred complacency among some businesses.
I highly recommend Automotive Maintenance machine for RV diagnostics and repairs. I am sure he does fine with autos also but cannot claim first hand experience there. Sam and Karissa provide, in the best sense of the word, an old fashioned customer experience.

Sam at Automotive Maintenance Machine is hardworking fella that gets shit done. He is incredibly knowledgeable about all sorts of mechanical and electrical issues and he has an incredible talent for being able to fix things. In addition, I found the office staff to be very friendly. Carissa exemplifies excellent customer service skills and she really does care about the quality of her work. Overall, the team at AMM is vastly superior to other auto shops in the area and I would trust them with all of my auto related issues, any day of the week.

Having recently moved into the neighborhood, I brought my truck in for a small repair. Sam got it done quick, and for a fair price. Easy, friendly customer service. I'll definitely be back next time I need repair work.

Motor Home: AMM has cared for our Ford F53 motor home for years. Sam and his staff have done all of the mechanical work on the chassis/drive train, as well as house work such as replacement of the electric entry folding steps and television changes. AAM knows motor homes and perform master level work without taking an enormous amount of time.
Automobile: Brakes, odd problems, transfer case and differential work, routine maintenance and odd issues are all competently addressed and resolved. Sam's estimates are always reliable. Solutions are both practical and reasonably priced.
Overall: We have referred friends to AMM because we know the services will be provided thoroughly, timely and within an agreed to budget. We, and our friends, have been uniformly and consistently well served by AMM for a number of years. We appreciate the fine service Sam and his staff provide.
Super service and tells you only what you really need. Very busy so appointments are advised. He's reasonable too!!
I needed a quick help/advice on a pressing automotive situation on my RV. I was pleasantly surprised at the time, effort and help I got. You just don't find people this willing to help and go that extra mile. I highly recommend this establishment!!
Sam, is the best mechanic I have found in and around WC. He has a broad knowledge of electrical and mechanical issues. He has worked on our diesel motor home and is the best I have found in the area.
Sam is an outstanding mechanic, he is interested in his clients, has great tips and demonstrates a very high level of integrity, especially in the field of auto repair. That is why I give him outstanding marks for care, concern, great quality of repair and willing to go the extra mile to help save on costs.
Sam is trustworthy mechanic! A sincere friend, even though the curse of earning a living reflects on his customers- 100.00 an hour is not a good deal but he works very hard and will tell you the absolute truth.-I myself like the atmosphere of a dusty and off the beaten path. He even does motor homes.
