Berkeley Minicar is an independent auto repair shop that has been servicing Hondas in Berkeley for more than 30 years. Berkeley Minicar takes pride in doing quality work when servicing your car. Our long-term technicians are extremely knowledgeable about the needs and idiosyncrasies of Hondas and Acuras. In fact, many of us worked at Honda dealerships before Berkeley Minicar. We can tell you why the engine light is on in your late model Hybrid, while keeping your vintage Civic wagon running smoothly. We always use the best quality parts and the same diagnostic equipment that Honda dealers use, and remain current on all maintenance requirements. We perform all of the services needed to meet or exceed your Honda warranty. You will find that Berkeley Minicar is not your typical garage. Mark (the owner) takes pride in maintaining a clean, neat and organized shop. Many of our technicians have worked with Mark since 1980 and the sense of loyalty and mutual respect are evident.

Berkeley Minicar is great!!! I was feeling cheated by Honda repairs and decided to take my car to Berkeley Minicar. That was the best choice I ever made!!! Customer service was excellent! My car was repaired quickly and efficiently and I am a returning customer. Thank You for a job well done!!!
My husband and I have been Berkeley Minicar customers since about 1981 and have never had any cause to regret it. After my husband's death they continued to treat me with courtesy and respect and I'm extremely grateful to have such a reliable shop to care for my 2007 Civic Si.
Berkeley Minicar is definitely deserving of 5 stars. Always a great place to take my car for service. I always enjoy talking to Jim, Nancy and the crew. it's a friendly welcoming car service center where you know you are getting the best car service available. Berkeley Minicar has been servicing my Honda for several years now and I have no doubt that Berkeley Minicar is the best place to service my car in the entire Bay Area. Try it if you haven't yet. You will be as pleased as I am.
