Magnuson Tire & Auto Repair Inc is rated 4.9 out of 5 stars, based on 75 reviews!
Over a ago I needed major front end work done with steering area of my car. I reached out to Magnuson Tire for a quote on rack and pinion and other damages and right off the back he quoted me $300-$600 cheaper from 3 previous estimates from San Diego (where car broke down) to Riverside (where I reside). Being I have AAA I towed my car to Magnuson the next week and they had it done for me the same day. Since then I have taken my car back and had over 4K worth work done overtime between my 2 cars and have referred family to them. Their liable, and honestly work is definitely a reason to make them your preferred mechanic shop. They are in it for the clientele not the money unlike the mechanic shops. I highly recommend given them a chance to assist you with any car services you need. By the way ask for Rene he will definitely take care of you! As he does for my family and self.
Keep up the Great hard work Magnuson Crew!!!
Been going here for a few years now always good service and work I go here for all my automotive service needs.
I recently began coming to this shop for my personal car after they provided me with great service on my company vehicle. While out with my residents, the car unfortunately would not start. I began calling different shops to see if any would be able to fix the car and invoice the company since we needed to get it taken care of immediately. I called and spoke with Rene, he assured me that they would take care of it. I had the vehicle towed to the shop, unfortunately it was near closing time but Rene actually stayed until we got the car there and it was up and running the next morning before lunch time, good as new. I have already recommended this shop to my friends and family. Great customer service! and the bonus for me, they have an adorable puppy who actually plays with a soccer ball! Makes waiting for any service worth it.
This review is strictly based of an act of kindness, not a vehicle service:
The other day I found myself stranded in the middle of university ave after my car broke down. I was by myself and had no way of getting my car out of the way of traffic, especially since no one was willing to stop and help. I just so happened to be in front of this shop and thought I'd call and see if anyone could help give me a push. So I did and they quickly came to my rescue to help even after they were closed. Thanks so much guys!
Also, my roommate has also gone to this shop when she was having car troubles of her own and she too mentioned their amazing customer service. They gave her advice on what she should do next and also informed her about her engine recall fee of charge.
Great hospitality and great prices. Not sure the name of the man that helped me but he was friendly and honest with everything. Got it done quickly.
5 stars because this place did an amazing job on my car, has affordable prices, very helpful and very friendly! Got my struts and breaks done and just that made my car feel a whole lot better. They are honest people and get the job done the way it should be. I was very pleased with the service here and I'm sure anyone else that brings their car in will be too.
Get your car repaired here!!! (Especially if you're a struggling student like me). Ernesto is great and I received nothing short of 5 star service! They were very helpful and instead of just trying to make a profit like most repair shops, they genuinely try to help you figure out the problem and fix it at a reasonable cost. I've been to other places where they charge you for just turning your damn car on! But their prices are definitely affordable and best customer service I've had at any repair shop. Very satisfied! Will definitely be back, thank you!
Great service! I went in at around noon to get my tires checked. They filled up my tires quickly, free of charge! The employees are very nice as well.
I went in 4/16/2018 to get my brakes done. Technician was respectful and professional. Took me to the truck and showed me the issue with my brake pads, front rotors, and rear brake shoe. They were bad and probably not safe to drive on. The only downside I had on my visit was the place where they ordered the parts brought the wrong rotors so that delayed the install. Other than that these guys were clean and quick. Will be coming back for my car maintenance needs.
Awesome vendor, easy to work with and Arnie is the best. One of our best local vendors. :)
SR Bray dba Power Plus
Super friendly and great service! Fixed my brakes and rear side mirror quickly and at a reasonable price!
Stopped by because my tire was low on air and they fixed it for free in just a few minutes. Great service!
Reliable. Friendly. Trustworthy. I would highly recommend this family-owned business
I came last month to get my engine checked, it had frequently been overheating. The person who inspected my car was very welcoming and friendly. The inspection was very quick and he was able to give me a couple of options on where to go from there. They treat you as people first, not customers. Would definitely come again!
great place, fast service and the guys know there stuff would definitely recommend this place to all, right of the freeway made it really convenient for me.
I have taken my car in twice for different reasons and both times I was treated with respect and not taken advantage of because I was a woman with limited knowledge of mechanics. Ernesto was patient and explained everything to me in detail. He even told me how to better use my brakes as to not to wear them down. The last time I took it in, he was honest and told me that I had a major problem that could only be handled by the dealer and he didn't try to take my money.
I would recommend this place to anyone needing honest auto repair services. Customer service is superb!
Earlier this morning I stopped by because my car said to check my tire pressure. I don't know the name of the guy at the front desk but he was so great and helpful. With most new cars the sensors are really sensitive, and being a female I don't know much about cars/tires etc. But the kind gentleman at the front desk took his time to explain to me PSI, how the weather effects it & how to check my tire pressure and check where to find the correct amount of PSI for my tires. I went in feeling annoyed about my tires, but walked out feeling grateful and appreciative. It was excellent customer service!! Thank you so much !!
Today they took care of my vehicle I had an engine light on, and they helped me take care of the problem and they completed an oil change, one of the best companies I have ever gone to do service on my car, very great team!
I will tell all the ladies out there looking for a great place to take your car this is it. The staff here is GREAT. I was referred to this shop by my girlfriend who would not take her care any where else. From the time I got there to the time I left the service was great. They speak to you in terms you understand, they break down the process step by step they fix the problem you can in for without adding any hidden charges. I love this place. I feel like i have really found a good place to take my car, with some people who really take a great deal of pride in their work and the service provided. So if you are on your own this is the place you want to take you car. Really nice people, really great service. I would tell anyone looking for a great place to take their car go here.
This place is great! Friendly staff and quick, fairly priced service. I came in with a slow leak in a tire last week and they pulled a screw out and patched the tire free of charge! I've been here for a few different services now and it's always a pleasant experience.
Great place. Very helpful and professional. I found my long term auto spot. Rene addressed all my concerns and took the time to answer all my questions.
I came to this place only looking for a fix for my flat tire however, I continued to come to this place after having some problems with my car later on. I have to say that the service that is provided here at Magnuson Tire & Auto Repair is unlike most auto repair shops. The first time came I was greeted with a warm welcome from the staff and they comforted me despite the fact that I was stressing over all the problems I was having with my car. When I had some other trouble with some noises I was hearing in my car, they quickly evaluated it and found all of the problems I was having with the brakes, axles, and the oil pan. Overall, the staff at Magnuson are honest people have the knowledge and adaptability to assess any of your needs concerning your car. I would highly recommend taking your car for whatever repairs you need as I will also be returning to this place if something does come up. Rene and Ernesto are not the ones to let any of their customers down!
5 Stars and a BIG Thank You to Rene and Israel at Magnuson Tire & Auto Repair for bring my car back to life!
I read the previous reviews and decided to stop by since I knew my car needed lots of suspension repair. Rene was very professional, friendly, and helpful throughout the entire process -- he explained the parts/labor and we were able to work a deal for struts, boots, axle, brakes, and alignment. As I was driving home I felt big difference with control of vehicle.
Magnuson Tire & Auto Repair is family owned and operated business -- their passion is customer service; I noticed everyone that walked in they attended to even throughout a busy day. I highly recommend this for any auto service needs and We will definitely be back!
This was my first time here and they went out of their way to help me out! Such friendly service, shout out to Ernesto for being so helpful! Will definitely come again in the future, 5/5, UCR students come here!
I have brought my car here for service and I am always pleased with the work and customer service. The mechanics explain what is needed to get the job done and they are very thorough and professional. I would definitely refer this shop.
The best auto repair in the city! I could not be more satisfied with the service at Magnuson Tire & Auto Repair. First off, I am a UCR college student and stumbled upon this place a year and a half ago, and I've been coming here ever since. They worked with me and my limited budget as a finaid student to get me the best deals on struts, shocks, tires, brakes, battery, oil changes, you name it! I've been coming to Magnuson for almost a year and a half now and it will always be my go-to auto repair because of their affordability, flexibility, time management and overall amazing customer service.
Great service affordable prices and a very friendly staff who are very helpful. Hard to find a great mechanic shop!!! This place is it.
Been coming here for a few years and always appreciate the service. We recently bought a used car from prime time auto(norco, ca) and with in a month had to replace the engine. This was in march, it's September and were still trying to get this car at 100%. The mechanics here have helped us out a great deal. From just being friendly to offering alternatives for new parts we may not be able to afford. They always take the time to explain the what and why's of their work. They even discount large jobs and have done some work for free which has been really awesome since we are there so often. There maybe places in the area that are cheaper, but you get what you pay for and sometimes that's not great. If your a customer here, they take care of you.
Great price and friendly service. I got 4 tires installed it took about an hour and 20 minutes. They also properly torque down the lug nuts.
Great customer service, affordable and awesome quality parts. I've been taking my truck here since September and they've worked on all my family's vehicles. Excellent service,Fast and friendly service with the best advice honest advice in the I.E.
I've never been to a tire shop and felt like I was hanging out with my friends before...these guys are seriously so cool. They were also incredibly honest and told me I didn't need the expensive repair another auto shop had told me I needed ASAP. The problem turned out to be far simpler and cheaper...they really could've taken advantage of me, but they have earned a long time friend and customer. This is the kind of place I would send my mother and not worry about her being taken advantage of. I highly recommend these guys.
Window Tinting Service
We also found substantial heat reduction in our house and fading of our couches near windows. Thanks to Magnuson Wheels and Tire for the great product and affordable price.
I had my doubts about this place,only because its hard being a wowen and showing up in these places with out wanting them to over charge u only cuz u female. Then i met ernesto and he totally made me feel comfortable with everything my car needed. Bottom line,i wouldnt have it any other for my "Prieto" car! Im a satisfied customer DEFENANTLY RECOMMEND THIS PLACE ????????????????
I really appreciate all the help the staff provided during an extremely stressful situation with my many car issues. Their prices are reasonable, their customer service was great, and they don't pressure you (best part). The guys up front were very helpful and really made me feel like they care about their customers safety. First time there and will definitely be coming back! It takes a lot for businesses to earn my trust and I really feel like I found honest people I can trust. Thanks again and I will definitely be recommending this place to my friends and family!
Brought my car in for a loud noise. Renee put it up and showed me the manifold was completely split from the catalytic converter. They don't weld there but he recommend a guy. They didn't charge me to find the problem with the manifold. Good quick service.
Very experienced mechanics and polite staff. These guys know their stuff and won't try to get you to fix 100 different things you don't want or need fixed. Been going here for about 3 years now and always have good results
Needed to get my tire pressure checked, and it was a spur of the moment so I checked out this place since it was close to UCR and I'm super glad I went here! One of the guys (didn't get his name) helped me fix the problem in 5 minutes! Great quick service, staff is nice and friendly, didn't pressure me to buy anything like other places would, and they're very professional. Overall a really good first impression, will becoming back when I need any help with my car!
I got my windows tinted with Lancelot here. Turned out great! Made my car look so classy and stylish. No bubbles and no fading. My parents Always take their cars here too.
Best service in town at fair prices guys are really friendly
I guess I can start off this review by saying thank you to the entire staff at Magnuson. From the time you enter the store Rene and the entire staff make you feel welcomed and never rush you. Magnuson had our 4Runner over Labor day weekend and obviously this put hold our plans for the holiday, any other auto repair would say"oh sorry we'll be back on Tuesday" but not Magnuson. Rene came in on his holiday to try and trouble shoot what exactly was wrong with our vehicle, since it was a computer issue trouble shooting and figuring out what was wrong was a taxing experience for them, but never did they show their frustration and remained professional the whole time. Who comes in on their holiday to try and get their customer back on the road? Magnuson and Rene. I cannot stress how professional, dependable, and extremely fair they are...they saved us hundreds of dollars because they actually care about creating a relationship with their local community.Did i mention they also came to the house to check on the car before it went in to the shop to see if it was something simple to diagnose.WOW. I am a customer till we move or die. Thank you Magnuson and the entire team for showing us what a local automotive repair shop should be.
When I started my car this morning, the engine light came on. I felt stress. I thought to myself maybe I might needed to just give up my car soon & buy a newer car, but how could I afford it now? My boyfriend suggested that he knew an auto repair place on University that his friend Jeff used to take his car whenever he had problems with his car. I walked into Magnuson Tires & told a receptionist that my car needed to diagnose test because my engine light was on. The receptionist was friendly & told me that it'll cost $79. I was okay with that price. Well, my boyfriend & I went back to Magnuson Tires to find out that it was my timing belt which needed to be adjusted & now engine light was gone. And good news was that they did not Charge me any fee for it. The receptionist told us that it only took them five minutes to find out what was wrong with my car & what needed to be done. So he felt that he should not charge us for something it only took five minutes. I was so shocked to hear this good news & could not believe that they're so honest with me and did not take any advantage of me. Nowadays, it's so hard to find someone who can be so honest & helpful at the same time. I will definitely go back to Magnuson Tires in a future & I highly recommend Magnuson Tires to anyone who is looking for a great, honest, helpful, & friendly mechanics. Thank you so so much for your honesty.
I loved the experience! Everyone is so helpful in explaining the details with the work done and the pricing. I felt that everyone was honest and kind and I would definitely recommend this place to anyone! I'll definitely continue to bring my car into Magnuson Tire for the work that's needed.
I would put 10 stars if I could but unfortunately I can't. Their service is awesome!!! I was having problems with my car and they help me fix it. I'am very happy with the job they did and I will definitely recommend it to everyone! They treat all their costumers like friends, when I was there waiting for my car to be done they were having a bbq and they shared with me! :)
Great experience. Quick and friendly service. Didn't pressure me to buy anything. Recommend highly. Two thumbs up for Rene.
Magnuson Tires did an amazing job repairing our SUV. While traveling through Riverside we had a brake caliper come loose on the CA-215. Being from out of town, we had no idea who to contact. The tow company recommended Magnuson's. They were able to find the part, repair our vehicle, and did a complete check of all my brakes. We were back on the road in less than 2 hours. The customer service at Magnuson's was five star! I appreciate the honesty from the manager down to the technician that did the repair! I highly recommend Magnuson's Tire!
Took my vehicle for an oil change and tire rotation. The sales person customer service was great. They found a few things that needed to be replaced and he was very detailed in explaining to me what needed to be fixed. The best part was that he broke down what needed to be done immediately and what could wait for another time. I didn't feel pressured and that made me feel very comfortable. I will definitely continue to bring my car here. Thank you Magnuson team!!!
I had such a great experience taking my car into this place. I specially want to thank Rene and the person who fixed my car. They were great at explaining things to me in a professional and clear way. Rene will always answer your phone calls and will give you solutions either in English or Spanish. He and the rest of the staff who works there take their jobs very seriously and professionally. They are honest and respect their clients at all times.
I brought my car to them because the timing belt on my car went off and the whole thing got complicated with my car. They took good care of it and even checked and replaced other parts on my car at no extra charge. Thanks to them my car is now working in perfect conditions. Their prices are also reasonable. I will definitely go back here again. 5 stars place!
Window Tinting Service
We also found substantial heat reduction in our house and fading of our couches near windows. Thanks to Magnuson Wheels and Tire for the great product and affordable price.
Great place for those of us who rely on our vehicles to get us to and from work safely each day of the week! Thanks Magnuson Tire Pros!
Was looking for a place to tint my windows for my car in the area of UCR and I stumbled upon Magnuson when I was driving down University and saw the signage for their window tinting service. I went in to get a quote for two front windows and they were able to do my car on the spot. For $40, I was able to to my front windows with the use of 35% Johnson film. They did a fairly decent job with a little to no bubbles on my windows. It has been a little over a month and there are no signs of fading or bubbling which means they did a good job. This is definitely the best place to get your windows tinted in Riverside when it comes to quality and price of the tinting job. I would highly recommend this place to others to get their car windows tinted.
pulling a trailer from out of town 2000 miles away. I called them, and they took care of my tow rigs flat within 20 minutes. Awesome job!
I have been going to these guys for years and have never been let down. I refer friends and colleagues there and I would not if I had any doubt of their integrity. they may not be the cheapest but they are reasonable and much better than dealers. Thumbs up!
Walked in to magnuson to get a second opinon because I had gone to a local shop near by and told me it was going to cost me $1,500 to repair a noise coming from my suspension. These guys took the time to inspect it and tell me that all it was my sway bar links. $150 bucks and it fixed the noise! I will definatly be going back to these guys. Fast, honest, friendly service.
Open until 5:00 on Fridays, with less than 30 minutes to spare, they repaired my flat...for FREE! Super friendly and helpful I will definitely recommend this place based on first impressions. The man who seems to be running the show said, "ehh, you look like a student, don't worry about it...enjoy dinner on Magnuson tonight."
These guys are awesome! Work was priced VERY fair and was done as expected and on time! I have a very large truck and the dealer wanted to charge me over $200 for a front end alignment. I called these guys they gave me a quote over the phone and I took the truck in. I was somewhat expecting to get hit with additional costs and extras when I picked it up but I got nothing more than excellent service at a great price. Take your car to them with confidence. They really knocked the cover off the ball for me!
This place is awesome! My friend recommended them and I have sent several more people to them, too. Every time Bob makes sure to go above and beyond in both service and value. He sent a service truck to change my tire. I didn't have the key to unlock rim when they arrived. Next day they replaced tire for only the cost of the new tire, no charge at all for my mistake on their service calls! (They traveled over 20 miles one way).
I have saved money on new tires for several vehicles and will go to them every time!!! They are always fast, friendly, and prices are more than fair....good cup of coffee, too!
These guys have always treated me fairly. They do what they can to help you save money and get the job done quickly.
Went here yesterday for a new tire and asked that they check all my tires as I'm making a trip to Vegas tomorrow. They were friendly and quick. (about 45 minutes). They dint mind that I left my car there for hours as I was at work. When I arrived I did have to wait a bit longer because my tire pressure light was on and they couldn't figure it out for a bit. But I'd recommend them to all~
I had a flat tire and decided to try this place out because it was close to my apartment complex. They patched it up in minutes and were so nice!! I had some other non-related car questions and they took the time to answer all of them without fuss. They even have a TV in the waiting room and made sure I had the remote so I could watch whatever I wanted. My service didn't take long so I didn't have time to watch anything but it's the thought that counts! Would definitely recommend this place - at least for flat tire services. haha :)
I had the windows of my 2014 Honda Civic Coupe tinted here. Their customer service is great! They're friendly and will answer any question you have. My vehicle looks amazing, and they spoke to me about proper care and maintenance. Prices are reasonable! A plus!
Service is great and fast. They accept walk ins so that's amazing. They have coupons on their site. Their prices are really good. Their customer service is superb. I highly recommend. They're near restaurants so you can go grab a bite while you wait. :)
Great price for window tinting, and the quality is excellent, the staff was even kind enough to offer me some of their pizza they ordered while I waited for my car to be done. By far the best shop and price in riverside.
Definitely one of the cheapest places to get your windows tinted. I was actually REALLY surprised how fast and good of a job they did. The work itself is absolutely worth the price. The tinting and auto work is done by separate people. The guys in back doing the tinting are really great and are who I am giving the 5 stars.
So my friend suggested this place for window tinting and we came in to get an estimate of how much it would cost for me to get my windows re-tinted. Had an appointment today at 12:00pm. Got the 18% carbon tint on all five windows plus had to remove the old tint. Mr Juarez did a great job and he has good customer service as well.
Awesome people. Had my rear tire swapped out, nothing but great customer service experience. The people working here are honest and down to earth. A hidden jem in Riverside.
It was a pleasure dealing with such a professional organization. The sales staff and customer service personnel were courteous and very knowledgeable. The installers were reliable and very efficient, they left my home cleaner than when they arrived.
I could not be more pleased with our window tint. We had a tremendous glare coming through our windows and the tint helped significantly. The install went great, they showed up on time and finished quickly. I would like to recommend Magnuson Wheels... ( More )
Just had my car's rear windows tinted dark by Magnuson Window Tinting. They did an excellent window tinting job. Now I am going to get more work done to the car, vinyl wrap of the roof. They are always busy with all kinds of different cars and clientele, a very good sign. They also take great pride in their work. Very happy I found this auto glass shop!
I've had a lot of experience with broken windows, I've gone to many different auto glass repair shops. After a car collision the car needed the windshield replaced. After calling insurance, they recommended me to Magnuson Wheels and Tire and I scheduled an appointment. They did an excellent job cleaning and did it all in an hour while I grabbed lunch down the street.
Very pleased with the auto tinting. I took my car and I have never been so excited to drive my car. I totally love it and I am very thankful with these guys for being so professional and kind. Even they are always busy they help you to book asap.
I haven' got much done on my car for a few years but recently had to take my window tints off and took my car to this place. These guys are awesome. My friend was waiting for me because other places I called told me it would take 2-3 hours to take off so I assumed it would been the same here but nope! My tints were off real quick.
Can't get any better than this!....honestly. FAST, PROFESSIONAL, and VERY AFFORDABLE . No problems what so ever on my Infinity g37. I recommend to everyone. Thanx Lancelot!
Excellent work! Great customer service, cheap, and good quality. I got my first car's windows tinted here and my parents go here all the time for window tinting.
Great window tinting service and auto glass repair! I am really happy from the professionalism these guys showed and handled both things window tinting service and auto glass repair. I highly recommend them! They also provide excellent car audio installations and believe me you won't regret calling them.
great window tint and glass service. very happy with the work they did on my car. i would definitely recomend this place.
