Customer Reviews Mike's Auto Clinic, auto repair shop in Nampa Idaho

A Note from the Owners:

"We strive to maintain a friendly, honest, and knowledgeable shop that people can come to and receive great service.”

Can't say enough about these guys!! They're super awesome and totally helped me out of a tough spot. I had two employees drive from Seattle to Nampa to work at a local event. When you send two girls long distance you worry, especially when the company van breaks down. I called Mike's Auto Clinic in desperate need of help and Jeff was just amazing!!!!  Although I was calling long distance for help he was right there to help my girls out, from getting a tow truck to fixing the van. He constantly called me to reassure me that everything would be taken care of and I can honestly say, he went above and beyond the call of duty. Mike's Auto Clinic quickly diagnosed the problem and got it fixed. Furthermore, I called for help on Friday and although they're not open on weekends, they stayed past closing hours in order to get the van fixed in time as my girls needed to return to Seattle on Sunday night. The price to fix the problem was more than fair but the fact that Jeff and his team actually cared about my girls being stranded was invaluable. You guys are totally awesome!!

This is the best, most honest mechanic I have ever dealt with. They have never once tried to sell me services I didn't need and they treat me with respect every time I go in. They don't have the "you're just a dumb girl" attitude that, unfortunately, a lot of mechanic shops seem to have. I can't recommend them enough!

My personal experience was very satisfying. We've had our BMW and Chevy truck serviced here since we first moved to Idaho. The first 'wow' factor I noticed is when we took our BMW in for a power steering issue. They test drove it, filled the fluid and tightened some thingie within a few hours - at no charge because it was a simple fix. That impressed me. I respect the guys behind the counter - honest and I believe fair. I am sure that there are 'cheaper' places for labor and I am sure if I read those cheaper places reviews I would read about some disgruntled person who received lousy service as well. I am old enough to know you cannot be completely happy, every time with every experience. Yet so far I have not been disappointed with the promptness of attention and quality of work. On a personal note, I'm not a facebookie, so I had to read the reviews before I posted mine. I got a great giggle when I read John's review and the other negative reviews because they were not what I experienced. John, it sounds like you needed your medication. What person would call an owner, even hunting down a home phone, during off hours to get service? If a IHop was closed because you wanted pancakes would you call the owner at home to find out why? Sounds to me like there is something personal in that review. This is my personal review and not a critique of others. I've been to disappointing shops and what I have experienced at Mikes for these last two years is not one of them. Yeah, they may not be pretty (but what of old downtown Nampa is), but the service is great and the people fair. I did love our emailed review of the Chevy truck that we had just purchased and asked them to inspect. We didn't have to 'trust' them on what they said, we received pictures, quotes and a prioritization list of repairs needed. When we went to the shop these items were explained to us to give us an informed decision on how we wanted to proceed.  Experience, the quality of work and what we asked for all came together here. I actually am the one who asked Mike's to provide me a place to write this review because I was so impressed (I guess to some I might be to easily impressed but to those who know me I am not) with the expectations met that I would heartily recommend their services. Thanks

Took my sons 1990 car in to Mikes Auto.  His Key would not turn in ignition. They charged me $100.00 to give me a quote. Spoke to the Manager and he said it costs $100.00 an hour to tell you whats wrong with the car. Extremely Unfair. Spoke to Mike regarding this situation and he has agreed to refund me. Very happy with the customer service

my daughter purchased a mini cooper used, when it was time for it to get looked at, we  had no idea where or who to take it to that we could trust. I googled "repair on mini coopers", and mikes auto clinic came up; made an appt. and was pleasantly impressed!! Rex helped us and after discussing all the details we left feeling confidant that we were in good hands. He did an amazing job keeping us informed and explaining everything . We found our new place to take our vehicles, knowing that we are getting quality and trustworthy service and reasonable rates, takes out a lot of stress:) thank you Mike's auto clinic for a superb experience!!

I am very impressed with the service and integrity that was demonstrated when I called Mike's for a quote. I had just been jerked around from a nationally known brand with a ridiculously high quote which was dropped dramatically when I hesitated to accept it. I left that place (and will never return) and found Mike's with a quick Google search. Their first and only quote to me over the phone was lower than any of the other quotes I received and the service was quick, friendly and enjoyable. This was my first visit to Mike's, but definitely won't be my last.

Took my car in because it wouldn't start. At first they couldn't find anything wrong with it, so they charged up the battery and got it back to me quickly. A week later the battery died again. They kept the car for a few days and hunted and hunted to track down the source of the power drain. Turns out my electric seat was staying on and draining the battery. It was a very time-intensive thing to diagnose, but they didn't stop until they figured it out. I have used them for oil changes and even for a second opinion on a brake job I was quoted from a specialty tire store, and they have always been honest, fast, and friendly. Oh, and they give you a whole list of recommendations for things that you might want to have done on your car. A month after your service, they MAIL YOU another copy as a reminder. Pretty cool!

I have a 2006 Mitsubishi Endeavor that i took into Mikes because the engine light came on, unfortunately it was because the catalytic converter went out, but everyone i dealt with at Mikes was very courteous and understanding they got the parts ordered and installed much quicker than i expected and they offer a killer warranty on all of their work. Overall a great experience and i will be going back.

My window wouldn't roll up and it was supposed to rain later in the day. I called and they told me to come right over. The guys got me right in and did a great job getting me back on track quickly. Very reasonably priced and genuinely nice people. I will definitely use their services in the future.

They repaired the AC on my Explorer, and it works so well on a 100 degree you get a chill. Thanks guys. You will remember me as the old lady who joked with you about the bird poop on the hood of my SUV...

I've been taking my car to Mike's for a few years now, and they've always been helpful and friendly. More than just telling me what's wrong with my car, they take the time to explain the problem in detail and their plan of action to get it fixed. All of the major repairs they've worked on for me (non-working fuel pumps, front wheel alignment) where I had to leave my car at the shop were finished the next day, so I wasn't without a car for very long. They also provided me with diagnostics for future problems that may occur soon or to keep an eye on without pressuring me into getting it fixed on the spot. Fast and friendly, Mike's Auto Clinic is definitely worth recommending.

FAST AND FRIENDLY SERVICE, THEY HAD HOT COFFEE AND NETFLIX TO WATCH IN THE WAITING ROOM I WILL BE TAKING MY CAR THERE ANYTIME I HAVE A PROBLEM.

I needed to get my oil changed and a check on the car and the place I use to go got very expensive so I decided to try Mike's Auto Clinic and Jeff was very polite and after he finished with the car he suggested that the hose and timing chain be changed. He said that there was no wear showing on the hose and he even went to the extra effort to find a timing kit and then he suggested that I get everything done at once because if I just did the hoses they change the water pump and then they change it again when they change the timing chain so it would save money to do both at once. Since my car is 10 years old and still has the factory stuff in it I felt it was very reasonable to change things. He also quoted a price that was very reasonable and cheaper then the place I use to take my car. I will definitely be going back to Mike's and when I get ready to get my hoses and timing chain changed

I was having trouble with my SUV.  Took it to Mike's and they had it diagnosed and fixed by the end of the day.  Real life saver considering the bad weather we were having.  Thanks. Like

These guys helped me out in s pinch after getting shafted by country repair.  Made warranty claim a breeze. Wife's durango is back on the road and running great. Would recommend to anyone llooking for a decent priced and honest shop

Very professional shop at reasonable rates. Mike and Jeff were able to squeeze me in the morning before Thanksgiving to address a Check Engine light. Three hours later after a quick diagnostic and much needed oil change my car was ready. They even advised me of a technical service bulletin showing they do their homework. Unfortunately I'm an out-of-towner, otherwise I'd consider being a regular.

As the mother of 5 children I'm so grateful that I found an honest repair shop that I trust. I know they are going to fix any problem at a fair price.  One less thing to stress about in my busy life.

— Google Review

They did good with the repair and did it in a timely manner. Pricing is a bit high at $107.50 per hour and $100 diagnostic but they did get me in and back on the road as quick as possible. I needed a crankshaft position sensor for my 05 Optima and they ordered the part and got it repaired just a smidgen over the estimated time but I was told is was to make sure it was done right the first time and here it is a couple weeks later and no problems so it was. Give these guys a shot if you want it done right and in a timely manner. Maybe try somewhere else if you are on a tight budget and want more of a budget mechanic.

Great service, Rex, Mike, Taylor, and the Staff went over and above to help us out. We had both of our vehicles go down at the same time. One we had to pay for and the other we had a outside warranty for. Even though the warranty wasn't theirs and it took some time to work out all the approvals, they were very helpful with all the details.   All the work was performed timely and as quoted. At times I'm sure I asked the same questions more than once, but Rex was patient and always answered with informative responses. Even though I hope to not need them, I am sure I will again and will not hesitate to use them again. And Yes I will refer my friends .... Thank You All for the GREAT service.

I needed to get my car fixed before the holiday weekend and Mike's was able to help me. They fixed it fast. I recommend Mike's, they're awesome!!!

They have ALWAYS done a great job on all our vehicles. And they have never over charged us nor had done unnecessary work to get more money. They have always been honest with us and I trust them more than any other shop that I have been too. The front desk is friendly and explains things in ways I understand and the mechanics always are friendly and do a great job and they always leave my car clean. All you guys at mikes are awesome!!!!!!! Thankyou for all you do and have done.

Good work at a fair price, will return next time I need work done to my truck.

We went to Mike's because we had a coupon in the mail and it was close to home. We have been taking our vehicles there for several years now. They always get our vehicles serviced quickly and greet us with friendliness. I appreciate that they give recommendations but are never pushy about getting extra things or even necessary things done right then. I just realized that they are closed on Saturdays and I appreciate their value for family and not just business! Thanks to all of the employees at Mike's for keeping our cars going!

I would recommend people and my friends to go to mike's auto clinic to have there car fixed. They did a really good job with my suv.

The guys at Mike's Auto Clinic have fit me in, same day, when I had an issue with any of my vehicles. They stayed in contact with me during the time they had my vehicle, and got it back to me as soon as possible. They (Jesse) even went above and beyond to do research and discover that one (expensive) issue was actually a recall so the dealership fixed it at no cost to me. I won't take any of my vehicles to anybody else. They are fair, professional, thorough, and friendly. Mike's Auto Clinic gets an A+++ rating from me!

The fix my car pretty quick and jessie was awesome. He helped explain to me what some of the major issuse were. Milinda was super sweet she even gave me a ride home due to my car being there overnight.

I stopped by mikes to have them look at why my heater just stopped working in my 04 ford taurus. They were able to figure the problem out quick and give me a decent estimate on repair. When I was able to come in and have the repair done they were very fast and friendly. Their waiting area was clean and very inviting. I highly recommend going into mikes for any car repair. With the colder weather coming its nice to have a warm car for my children.

They always take good care of my old lady. Thanks so much!!

Went into Mike's with a coupon and a check engine light needing to pass emissions. Not the fanciest place to get your car worked on, but they did a great job and my car passed. Would recommend.

I made an appointment yesterday. They scheduled me for today. I was taken in quickly and professionally. I decribed my problem. The mechanics diagnosed and repaired it quickly and at a very reasonable cost. They could have told me I needed a lot of work, which I was expecting. They said it was an easy fix and got the job done. My total time from walking in to leaving the driveway was about an hour and a half. I'm impressed and very happy! Thank you for treating me right!

These guys are awesome. They took good care of us the first time we went in to ask advise on weather or not to buy our car and then gave us good prices on repairs we needed the next time we came in. They also called to check in on us and make sure everything was taken care of. I would highly recommend them!!

My first experience with Mike's Auto Clinic went very well. Being new to the area, I chose a service shop close by for convenience. I just needed a standard service, but with an inspection  more was notably needed to be done. They provided me with photo documentation and physical evidence of what needed to be done. They fairly priced me. Potentially saving me thousands of dollars from future problems. Great business and very professional.

I’ve taken multiple vehicles to mikes for a range of services from oil changes to strut replacement. Every time the work is done efficiently and prices d very reasonably. I will be going back for all my auto mechanic needs.

Very knowledgeable staff. Diagnosed what the problem was and fixed it. I was able to have some other maintenance done and they were able to finish it a little bit under the original quote. Had a small problem after I got my car back and they were able to fix it and get me back on the road.

I bought a 2007 Ford F-150 from a used car lot and within one month and 956 miles put into the truck, its head gaskets broke. I spent a lot of time trying to negotiate a deal with the used car lot to help with the repairs, but they refused to bargain with me, and frankly i didn't trust them. I called many repair shops and they all gave me vague quotes and seemed as if they were too busy to talk to me. When i called Mikes Auto Clinic, Mike was polite and prompt to get my truck into the shop so they could look at it. It took them about 7 weeks to rebuild the engine, which included nearly tearing the whole engine apart, milling the heads, replacing all the belts and hoses and whatever magic those mechanics preform in their shop. By the time I had my truck back it ran like a champ, and not to mention they have a 3-year 36,000 mile warranty on their work. They did a really good job and im going to have them do the rest of my car maintenance work.  My only complaint is that some of the other people working the office were not prompt on getting me the information that i needed. It seemed that i could not get their attention away from the computer, and the only time i actually talked to them face to face is when i flashed the checkbook.

Recently, we have had 3 cars into Mike's Auto Clinic. All 3 cars were fixed in a timely matter. Mike's Auto Clinic communicated with us on all the repairs. They charged reasonable rates. They followed up with us to make sure the cars were still doing good. We would definitely recommend them to anyone needing their cars repaired.

Trustworthy, reliable, and worth every penny! Having work done here is like going to family. They give you honest assesments, don't try to sell you on things you don't really need, and they take extra time/care to make sure you feel like their VIP every time you work with them! They really appreciate their customers and make sure your vehicle is safe for you to drive. Always willing to work with your schedule and transportation complications. Love these guys!!!!

Excellent service. Quality workmanship.  Time is taken to explain issues or what they would like to do to the vehicle. Work is completed on time as estimated.  They drive car and inspect to make sure customer is driving away without the problem they drove in with.

I am driving a Subaru with almost 280K. Mike did a bunch of work on the car in 2012. Haven't needed anything but oil changes and tires since. He does good work.

I brought our 2012 Ford Focus in to Mike’s for a transmission repair. I had worked on the car for some time and wasn’t having much luck. I had done quite a bit of web research on the car and found Ford’s transmission has some issues. This definitely isn’t an inexpensive repair no matter who does it. Quick service, correct tools and technicians who know how to use them. Three year warranty, I’m not used to a shop that is that confident. I will return to this shop again and would recommend it to anyone. Only thing I would change would be to put the 3D printer on the counter so everyone can be amazed while they wait.  James Howell

If I lived in Nampa, Mike's Auto Clinic would get all of my business! I live in Michigan and I recently bought and old pickup from a local auction and planned to fly in and drive it the 2000 miles home. The previous owner and the auction both said it was good to go. I thought it would be wise anyway just to have it inspected before I took a 33 year old truck on a cross country road trip. Well lets just say I had to stick around a couple extra days before all the work was done. I had searched online for a local garage and one that stood out was Mike's Auto Clinic. They went out of their way on their site to assure interested customers, they have their best interest in mind. So I took a chance. What they initially agreed to was a standard inspection service, what they ended up doing was major work to get the truck road worthy and most importantly, safe. The hours that it would require was not in the schedule, it was an interruption to their already, obvious busy schedule, but you wouldn't have know it. They went out of their way to make sure our stay was as brief as possible. There was genuine concern for my best interest and a level of customer service you only get from the best. We made it to Michigan without a single issue! Thanks Guys! Great Work!

— Google Review

Wonderful, knowledgeable office staff coupled with competent technicians will make your experience with Mike's a pleasant one.  Mike, Jesse and Cory are the best!  Cory even gave me free rides to and from my home when the repair took overnight to complete.  A big THUMBS-UP to Mike and his employees!

Brought our 3rd vehicle in as it has been leaking some oil, they performed a very thorough inspection and diagnosed the leaks. They were very professional and pleasant to deal with. However, their repair estimate was a lot higher than the cars value and we decided to have the work performed elsewhere  (for about 1/4 of the price). I understand mikes auto clinic has a 3 year warranty, which is great, but for our 3rd car it just wast worth the extra  $$.

— Google Review

I had a very good experience with Mike's yesterday. They got me in with only a day's notice, and fixed what my former mechanic in Caldwell didn't, and at a decent price. Very helpful and friendly staff as well. Definitely recommended, especially if you have a Honda or similar - they seem particularly knowledgeable and want to work on them.

Very nice customer service, Cori and Jessi amazing guys they went beyond my expectations, providing a safe place for my kids and I to wait while my SUV was being taking care of. They also provided me with transportation to and from their location, the estimated time and cost to fix my car was reasonable, I received financial options and a special guarantee for their work not offered by any other place I had talked to. They saved my SUV when other mechanics gave up. Thank you so much!!!

Took my car in with no notice because of a terrible noise coming from the motor. It was diagnosed quickly and I was able to get it repaired along with my regular preventative maintenance . Mike keeps my older car running beautifully. I totally trust their judgement and appreciate the top notch quality and service I get there. Fair prices and wonderful service. Does not get any better than this.

Had to get some work done on my vehicle and thought that it would cost me an arm and a leg, but after all was said and done, I was able to get my vehicle fixed at a reasonable rate. I only have one vehicle so when Mike's took care of my car, they ultimate took care of me. These guys are the best. May not be the cheapest, but they work hard and their work is impeccable quality. Thank you Mike's Auto Clinic! I'll be a customer of yours for forever!
