We are from the north bay and had smoke coming out from under our car as we were leaving Monterey, pulled over and called a tow truck. Of course the tow truck company referred their own garage, but then the car rental company thankfully steered us here. They took care of us right away and we were back on the road in a couple hours! Thank you Wayside for allowing us to get home and taking good care of us!!

The staff at Wayside is friendly, diligent, and will keep you updated about the status of your vehicle. If you are in the Monterey area, I highly recommend this garage for your vehicle's repair needs!
