Gave a very honest, transparent quote. They really tried to help us with a car we were upside down on! Emma was awesome, really appreciated their help!

Hello there, I have a 2006 325i.  I have been to he'll and back dealing with Niello BMW. Ellios was highly recommended to my husband by sagovia car detail in dixon BTW he is outstanding for the work he does and super reasonable.  But anyways I called Eillos this morning Emma told me she would send a tow truck to Niello to pick up my car which I was thrilled to hear. After all that Niello finally emailed me back with there diagnosis which I don't trust since they have charged me $4000 and couldn't figure out my transmission problems 3 X's. So I am very excited I have my car there at ellios waiting for them to diagnose and treat. THANK YOU A MILLION EMMA.. Robert when I called earlier and mentioned to you a little bit of background on my bmw you smirked which made me feel really good about my car being there with you. So obviously you know how bad niello really is.

AWESOME experience with Ellios. Just drove from Phoenix to Sac to trade in/pick up a car. Let's just say, the process was nothing less of a mission. Emma was super sweet, patient and accommodating. I highly recommend going to them if you're looking for great vehicles, and even greater customer service. I'd give them 6 stars if I could...

nothing but awesomeness here at ellios. i have been going here for six years, then moved out of town for awhile, came back and needed some service and they got me right in and took care of me same day. you get email updates of when services are due and discount coupons a couple times a year.

I have brought my cars to Ellio's since the early 1980's,,,Ellio's himself took care of my BMW and he was a very professional, honest and down to earth gentleman...Ellio's chldren; Emma and Robert are like their dad and when we bought our Mercedes, there was no hesitation as to who will take care of it's needs. Both Emma, Robert, and the rest of the team are 100 percent in every way....professional, trustworthy, and they all know foreign cars....I truly recommend them; not only will you be satisfied with their treatment, but they will save you $$$ compared to dealer's....Go check them out!!!!

Robert, Emma, Victor and the rest of the wonderful team at a Ellios have been our go to place for servicing our foreign cars now for over 10 years. They even sold one for us, and we feel that we are treated with total honesty and receive the best service available in Sacramento. Would recommend this place to anyone looking for fair prices and exceptional work!

Was looking for a BMW certified mechanic to do work on a 2008 3 series and found these guys on Yelp.  All I can say is that I am very impressed and happy with the service.  They were straight forward, honest, and didn't try to sell me services with too much pressure.  Reasonably priced, very helpful, and nice.  I will gladly return!

I looked for a shop to service my 1991 Mercedes 350sdl, when I moved here last year from S. California.   I had extensive work done a few moths ago, over $4,000...all new front end, water pump, fuel injectors and lines, tensioners, belts, motor mounts and more.  Just took it back in for some leaks.  I needed to replace a bunch of worn gaskets and O rings, new fuel filters and some other parts...my car has NEVER run this GOOD!!!!!!!  They take very good care of what needs replacing or is due to fail, this car is 22 years old but looks great, and now it runs like it was NEW!!  This is the only place I will now take my car.

Thanks, Robert, for the great job on our Mini Cooper S.  You saved me a lot of $$ compared to the dealers.  Also, Robert gave us a military discount on the repairs so every little bit helps my pocketbook.  What I like especially about Ellio's is that they used authentic parts from the Mini Cooper dealer in town.  The 18-month warranty on the repairs is also settling.  Thanks again for the great job!

This is the only foreign auto shop I trust in town! When I bring my BMW here I feel like it's getting babied and cared for very exquisitely...the only shop I feel 100% comfortable with my vehicle! I love the family atmosphere...Emma is wonderful, attentive and all the guys are friendly, skilled and  trustworthy. The biggest plus is that they have a loaner car... I referred my aunt and now this is the only place she trusts also! My aunt had to get to school but her window wouldn't roll up and the loaner wasn't available so Ellios offered to drop her off to school and pick her up if necessary...very impressive considering nowadays the only places that will do this are dealership auto repair shops who have courtesy shuttles..This is the only place my entire family trusts! They are timely, they fully explain all your options, they truly care about you and your vehicle and they are the only foreign auto shop in town who doesn't try to hang you when it comes to the bill. I will be a lifetime customer.

I been a customer of Ellio's German Auto since 2007,and everytime I take my car there, they are very helpful and honest for the evaluation of the services nned for my car Sometimes, if I'm short of cash, Emma or Robert are both willing to negotiate or give me discount. I would never go anywhere else for the service of my car.

I was happy to find this shop after working with a more expensive one in town.  Whenever I have a need, they accommodate me and provide the service only that I need.  They make their recommendations and I've never felt pressured in any way.  I've been a loyal client for the past three years and now they even take care of my wife's Toyota Highlander as well.

Tim M. | 2013-04-03

I have had many different companies work on my cars over the years as I have lived in many cities, but I don't think any of them has compared to Ellio's.  Emma and Robert treat you with respect, are clear about explaining what needs to be done, and while I have asked them to look at certain things to fix, in some cases, they have said there is no need or it can wait for the next service.  I find that this level of honesty is refreshing and I will remain a very loyal customer.

one of the bmw repair shop i can trust. best service and quotes reasonable prices. thanks to robert and emma. i recommend this shop to anyone in need of european cars to be worked on.

Alex G. | 2011-07-08

This is the only place in town I'd take my BMW.  I've been taking my cars there for service since the mid-90s and they are excellent.  I even bought a car from them.  It's a family run shop that has always been trustworthy and stands behind their work.  I could not more highly recommend this shop.

Stan M. | 2010-07-02

Emma works hard and quotes u reasonable prices. Nice clean shop with a friendly black lab to great u at the door. Service repairs seem kinda slow, but then again, you dont want to rush the technicians doing the work on your car. Overall, its a nice place to get your car serviced

Bryan F. | 2008-08-04

I would trust my next BMW purchase from this business.  From the owners to the techs...awesome work.
