Standard Auto Care Sacramento California

Complaint: Consumer’s Original Complaint : My vehicle was misdiagnosed, paid over $4k for repairs, my vehicle still does not work and Standard Auto Care will not fix it.On Oct 6 2012, I had my 2006 Nissan Altima towed to Standard Auto Care for diagnosis. I was told by Tom, the owner, that my vehicle had a blown head gasket and 2 catalytic converters that needed to be replaced….all told over $4,000 of repairs. I decided to have the repairs done and finance the repair cost, as this is my only vehicle. I picked up my vehicle on Oct 25. On approx Oct 29,the oil light and check engine light came on in my vehicle. I put in approx 3 quarts of oil…the oil light off, but the check engine light remained on. On Oct 30 i called Standard Auto Care and returned the vehicle to them. Tom, the owner, told me that I now had a piston ring/ rod issue that they had no way of knowing about, and that my engine would have to be rebuilt. He told me to check the oil often, and had a techician reset the check engine light. On November 1st, while driving on Interstate 80, my vehicle started to make a knocking sound and stopped. I was stranded on the side of the freeway, and was charged over $200 to have my vehicle towed to my home. I didn’t even have my car for a week and it was broken down again. All told, after paying over $4,000 for repairs and over $200 in towing fees, I am still left without a car…..and Tom, the owner of Standard Auto Care, refuses to refund my money. His only offer was to provide free labor to install a used engine if I buy one. DO NOT TRUST THIS SHOP WITH YOUR VEHICLE!!! Feel free to comment with any questions because I wouldn’t want anyone to go through what I’ve gon through with Tom Hipp and Standard Auto Care.

Yes it is. Based on the user review published on, it is strongly advised to avoid Standard Auto Care Sacramento California in any dealing and transaction.
Not really. In spite of the review published here, there has been no response from Standard Auto Care Sacramento California. Lack of accountability is a major factor in determining trust.
Because unlike, other websites get paid to remove negative reviews and replace them with fake positive ones.
Standard Auto Care Sacramento California is rated 1 out of 5 based on the reviews submitted by our users and is marked as POOR.
Never trust websites which offer a shady ‘advocacy package’ to businesses. Search for relevant reviews on Ripoff Report and Pissed Consumer to see more unbiased reviews.
