They do a thorough job, and they are reasonably priced. 1/2/2013

I brought my car in because of a noise. They checked it out and found that the noise wasn't mechanical, so they didn't charge me. I had them rebuild a transmission in 1995. They've been around for a while. more

Yesterday, I took my car in to Leale's 5/30/2012

Yesterday, I took my car in to Leale's to have the light on my dasboard checked out. Of course, I was hoping that it was nothing serious but needed to have it fixed even if it was! I found Mark and staff VERY accommodating, pleasant and so very helpful. They thoroughly gave my car a full inspection, which I didn't expect, at no extra charge AND what they did find was a spider and her eggs blocking some tube connected to the fuel and emissions that prevents poisonous fumes into the environment. I hope I explained that correctly!! Anyway, I was thoroughly impressed with their service and how Mark took his time to explain what was happening to my car. They were very honest with me, very reasonably priced and know their work; plus I can tell how passionate they feel about keeping our cars safe on the road!! I highly recommend Leale's Auto Repair, and I KNOW I have found a new home - even for an oil change - yep! This is where I'm going from now on!! They've got my business and a new a loyal customer. Can you tell how happy and relieved I am?? Thank you Mark and staff - you're the BEST! Sherri Cousart more

They did me right whent 2 other Shops Couldn't. 2/1/2012

I've recently been to two other shops trying to get my 98' diesel truck running right. Both wanted to give it a complete and very expensive tune up and a complete rear brake job. On my last try I went to Leale's. They said the rear brakes were fine, but just needed a spring. All the engine needed was new glow plugs and now it starts easily and runs great. Neither shop notice that my front end was in terrible condition. I got a good price on the rebuild and after driving home that day realized how much effort I was using just keep it on the road. Now it drives like it did when it was new. more

I would have spent 2k only to break down in the near future. 1/31/2012

I had my 1999 toyota towed in for their free evaluation as to why it wouldn't go into gear. They spent some time inspecting everything and said that the transmission was worn out and that the engine was really tired as it had over 180,000 miles on it. But car looked great with excellent interior and body. I would have spent up to 2k to try and get it running again, but they advised that in my case it may be wiser to invest the 2k in a newer used car and sell the good parts of this car. I left their shop not paying them anything for their time, but very grateful for their honest advise and the contact info for Pick'n Pull. more

I called them back to say how happy I was! 1/31/2012

GREAT SERVICE AND PRICE 9/26/2011

I was amazed at the service, professionalism and fair prices at Leales. Also, they do ALL REPAIRS, not just Transmissions! If something was wrong with your car, regardless of what it is, I would recommend Leales! Lonni was very helpful and friendly and I never have been so pleased with spending thousands of dollars to repair a car! I went in with a Saturn having transmission issues, and some other incidental problems. Lonni said he had worked for Saturn for years and expressed that he suspected a certain issue because my car was notorious for it. He hit the nail on the head and it was indeed what he said it was. I also had them fix windows, seat belts, A/C starter & ignition problems, and it all came in less than what I budgeted for the transmission alone. Unfortunately, they said they couldn't replace the seatbelt, but somehow it got fixed anyway (no charge) and also they said that they didn't fix the A/C but it is also miraculously working. Of course, I cannot promise that they will fix things for free for YOU, but I'm very happy with my experience. They also were very accommodating to shuttling me home and picking me up when the car was finished. If I had to say something critical, it was that service took a little longer than I expected, by about a day or two. I had a lot being repaired, so it wasn't that big of a deal, but my expectations were set for a day or two less. They lose a star for this, but gain a star for the "extra" work they did, so it still works out to 5 stars in my book. I will certainly return to Leales anytime I need to. more

Always great. After twenty years, I would not take my car anywhere else. 1/28/2011

I've been going to Leale's Automotive Repair & Service for over twenty years now. I'm very loyal to them and would never go anywhere else because they are fair and honest. I recommend them to everyone who needs work done on their cars. They've fixed just about everything for me from my transmission, brakes, to window repairs and oil changes. I've always been extremely happy with their services and have absolutely no complaints. more

Beware of Leales RV San Jose 8/12/2010

On June 14, we had trouble with our Gulfstream that had a fan clutch engaging too often.\r We parked near Leales at night based on the advice of a member of the Eagles who said several of their people used them.\r I did find that a vacuum hose had been disconnected so when we drove the vehicle it seemed fine. No fan clutch problem.\r Since we were across the street, we decided to let them check it anyway.\r Then we got Ralph (their mechanic). First we were told they had to change the thermostat because the fan clutch WAS NOT engaging. OK go ahead for $400.00.\r Then after Ralph again test drove it and consulted with more senior mechanics, we were told, he needed to change the fan clutch also for now $800. OK.\r Finally after 8 hours we left and the fan clutch started engaging more and more until it was intervaqls of less than two minutes. A nightmare to get back to Southern California. My mechanic here put a genuine GM fan clutch on, made adjustments and the vehicle runs fine.\r I called ""Glen"", the man we had dealt with at Leales, and he told me he was the owner and would review it with his service manager and get back to me. \r We returned the fan clutch to them as instructed, and to this date, nothing has happened. Now I find out Glen is not the owner (probably wishful thinking), but the supposed owner ""Dave"" in spite of promises by his service manager, has never contacted us.\r We have reported this to the Bureau of Automotive Repair, and will publish our experience with these people in hopes others are forewarned.\r Daniel Wiener\r 949 643 2779 more

I could no have been more pleased with the service. I brought the car to Leale's because I have known Mark Welch for nearly 10 years and I trusted him to give me an honest evaluation of what needed to be done to my daughter's car. He prioritized everything and allowed me to make the final decision. I cannot begin to express now grateful I am for the care that was taken to insure that my daughter's car would be safe for her to drive. more
