This was my first visit to Same Day Auto. A friend of mine referred me to them. I actually had several suggestions from friends regarding auto mechanics in Portland (many who are also highly rated). However, when I called around for pricing, Same Day Auto essentially won the bid. And the fact that they have loaner cars you can rent (which was free since it was my first time), is really helpful.
I had a printed estimate of the work we agreed upon. Toyota told me that my brake fluid needed to be drained and replaced, but SDA said that it was actually fine and did not need servicing. I really appreciate their honesty. Everything else was taken care of in a timely manner, including my transmission fluid which was apparently extremely dirty (on a prius there's no dip stick to check it) and they had to spend extra time on that. I did have to pay for the extra trans fluid they had to use, but it was a reasonable charge and my final payment was still less than I expected since they did not have to change the brake fluid. I will definitely be bringing my car back here in the future!
