Best of the Best

Holman came in on his day off to repair my AC.

I would use him again, and I would recommend him to my friends.

He has integrity, and he cares about his clientele.

Great customer service, I know that what I need will get taken care of and at a fair price. Very few people that I honestly trust to work on my vehicles and Holman is one of them.

Holman and his staff are absolute professionals who provide top quality work in a timely manner. It's important to have a mechanic service that you can trust. I've been using Encore Automotive for five years now and wouldn't go anywhere else. Thank you!!!

BEST prices after comparative shopping.These guys couldn't do enough for my father when he took his older Lexus in & I couldn't be more grateful. I wouldn't recommend going to anybody else, these guys will give you impeccable service and go above and beyond for you.

Wanted to thank Encore Automotive. Last week my a/c went out and after trying to fix it myself I took it to a local mechanic in Palm Desert whom I’ve used a bunch and thought they were honest. He called me back and said it was a hose leak was going to be over $680.00. I remembered calling Encore awhile back about something and got a good vibe from them, so I called and got a quote. They quoted me $400 less. They got my car right in, fixed it and stayed true to the price. Excellent customer service! I will be passing on their info to anyone I can, there’s nothing better than an honest mechanic! 👏

Great Customer Service, Holman is very knowledgeable and always answer all our questions with a precise information, prices are very competitive in comparison with the local dealers, and the service is by far way better!

hi you made it

I have brought my car here three times and everytime I have had great service! I highly recommend them. For the last repair I needed my own family member told me the part alone was going to cost $600, I came to Encore and the entire issue was fixed under $200. I don't have much else to say but the staff is friendly and helpful.


— Yelp User Review

I brought in my Tahoe and it was bad news from the start. New tranny and then some. I'm so glad I didn't go elsewhere. Status updates were at the ready when I called and I gave them time to order their parts. Well I'm ecstatic. I can't recall the last time my Chevy Drive this smoothly! It just feels so strong also. I have a brand new car and it was thanks to these guys. Also price is competitive and right where the norm was. Coming back for all my mechanical issues


— Yelp User Review

So we took our 2012 Nissan back to have all brakes done. Fair and honest price and great customer service. Even cleaned inside of wheels upon request. Thanks again.


— Yelp User Review

My drivers side window fell off tract and dropped down the door. I checked yelp and saw the high praise from their customers. They took me in the very next morning and within 45 minutes they had the panel door off, fixed the tract, cleaned my door panel and glass from fingers prints. $80 later I was on the road. Office was clean, comfortable, TV and WiFi. Fast and efficient. Highest recommendation from me.


— Yelp User Review

Great service. They listened to me and diagnosed the issue. I felt comfortable with the result and they did not try to "run up" the bill. I went in for a faulty air conditioner and noisy tensioner for the serpentine belt. I will return when I need more work done.


— Yelp User Review

I just moved to the Valley, and was in need of a new mechanic. I found Encore from Yelp, and I'm happy to add to the other 5 star reviews. Holman and Lucy were both very nice. I got an oil change and new front brakes within 1/2 a day, and for an extremely reasonable price. My only surprise is that Encore is a bit off the beaten path, as far as location is concerned; but still, worth the journey.


— Yelp User Review

My wife's Lexus SC430 needed to have the timing belt changed due to the age of vehicle. The Lexus dealer quoted $2,000. I read the great reviews for Encore on Yelp and met with Holman to get an estimate. He looked at the vehicle and his estimate was $730 and included replacing water pump and tensioners! They used all factory parts and they did a fantastic job. The shop is spotless and their work impeccable!

The only place I will take my cars including routine service! It is so nice to have a great honest mechanic!


— Yelp User Review

Amazing experience! There shop is VERY NEAT & CLEAN which is hard to find these days, and me being a high end Automotive Detailer that's a huge plus for me. Holman is very Professional, Respectful and very delicate on your ride. I had Holman install my Eibach Lowering Springs on my 2017 Mustang GT and he did an amazing job! I'll be back again and will be telling friends and family as well. Thanks again ENCORE!

Encore, saved me close to $600, the dealership wanted that amount of money to fix my right hand mirror on my car that I damaged. The owner took a look at my mirror and said give him about 25 minutes to look closer at it to see what he can do. He returned the car with my passenger mirror all fixed. I asked him how much do I owe him and he said nothing at all. I told him you spent over a half an hour working on my car and it looks perfect, I must OU something and he said no just please recommend me to people. And I am recommending the shop to everyone, the service was wonderful, Very clean environment and a wonderful staff of people. They do bodywork, repairs, oil changes, anything that you need done. From the other customers that were waiting for their cars said that they been going to the shop for a long time and you get the best service and best pricing. Again I highly recommend anyone in need of this type of service to use on Encore Auto

Great service! Great people! Fast, friendly and competitive prices. They know what they are doing.

I will never ever ever take my car to anywhere else. Holman and Eddie are beyond awesome. I've been taking my cars to Holman for years, and that will never change. Wherever he goes, my cars will go. Their prices are unbeatable and the service they provide is top notch. My whole family takes their cars to them, even though we have a few other mechanics as friends. Holman has won us over with his work, quick service, and pricing. Highly recommend!


— Yelp User Review

Eddy was very helpful at diagnosing our wheel bearing problem. This shop is top quality and we will be back with our Honda.


— Yelp User Review

Very impressed with the integrity and class of the mechanic/owner of this shop. He could have taken me for a big chunk, coming in with a complaint of a noise I heard , that sound like engine trouble. ((Dealer wanted $115.00 just to diagnose it, and probably would have ripped me off for hundreds.)

After he determined the problem was a loose bolt/nut on a metal pan under the car, which was the vibration noise, he fixed it with no charge. I decided to get an oil change, as I was due soon for it and wanted to give him 'some' business as he spent about 40 minutes with my car already. I really appreciate honesty and clean work. I will be coming back here for all my auto repair needs! I already gave his card to someone , the next day. Very respectable guy, thank you Holman!!" "I'll be back," said woman with the 2014 Rogue:)) Receptionist was very nice and friendly as well. Thanks!


— Yelp User Review

Very happy with my experience here.

They changed my for less then half the dealer cost for my Maserati, with OEM oil and filter, as well as changing the battery in my key fob.

Had the specialty equipment to reset my service needed light as well.

Very professional and pleasant all the way around, and the business is kept immaculately clean.


— Yelp User Review

Came to get my spark plugs replaced, Very fast and great customer service.Told us exactly what's wrong and explained procedures to us gave us a print out of things thst need to be done along with the price and put in the order if urgency will be going back.


— Yelp User Review

Had problems with my Hondas brake system, so many parts I have replaced to fix the problem but still nothing came out of it besides new parts I won't have to worry about later on the road.

Contacted Encore Automotive left my Honda with them an they solved and fixed the problem the same day! They had great customer service and they answered so many of my questions with no problem. Very friendly and knowledgeable mechanics!

The price was right! I will be recommending them to my friends!

Thanks again Encore!

I am not from this area, I was visiting for coachella, the last day I was there something happened with my car so I called them last minute to see if they can help me fix it so I can drive home, and they were SO nice, easy going and helped me right away!! I recommend this place, by far the best auto repair I have ever been to, wish they were near me !!


— Yelp User Review

I have lived in the desert my entire life and this is the first auto shop where I feel confident and comfortable with the employees and quality of service. They are very honest and upfront about each individual situation and it is not overpriced or expensive. On top of that, the employees are very kind, polite and helpful. I highly recommend this place to everyone.

I will definitely be a returning customer.


— Yelp User Review

Yes, I can't say enough good things about the company and personnel. Recently moved here from Bellevue ,Wa with no referrals and went online to find a company that could fix my air conditioner in the heat of the summer. Encore did a marvellous timely job and I now can bare the heat of the desert.


— Yelp User Review

Best shop in the valley with reasonable prices and quick turnaround! I bring my Prius to this shop for various repairs and they are as honest as it gets. I will never trust the dealership with repairs again!!!!

I had an older van I was tranferring from Sedona to California, which I bought to jelp a friend out. Well the vehicle didn't make it to it's destination, so I had to make arrangements to put her down. But before we got that far into the story, I had AAA tow the vehicle to Encore Automotive. So they were so nice over the phone, I was looking forward to working with them. As it turns out, they gave me news that they could rebuild the engine and gave me a cost for that or they had already found a replacement engine which was cheaper and less miles. I chose to have a salvage company take it instead.

I'm going to say sorry to the guys now because I thought I had a brand new hydraulic jack still in the box and much to my surprise it was left at home by mistake. I feel really bad that I would even think, these guys were so proud of their reputation, that they would have taken the jack. They apologized and the tow truck picked it up. I paid the minimum amount for their efforts and karma will definitely repay the guts at Encore. They were very nice. Thank you Eric and Robert. Sorry if I made you feel bad, you didn't deserve that, you gyts are great.


— Yelp User Review

Great customer service, affordable prices, and they really go out of there way for their costumers. I haven't been to a mechanic shop where employees respect and honor their customers like this place does.


— Yelp User Review

Dealership Work and products! Great pricing Holman is Man! They will take care of all your car needs!

My husband and I drove into Indio today from Northern California and were having issues with our brakes. We called Encore to see if there was a chance someone could check it out for us. We were told to bring it right in. Within minutes, they diagnosed the problem. They got it fixed and we were on our way in just over an hour. Everyone was so nice and it was just an excellent experience. Thank you Eddie for taking care of us!


— Yelp User Review

Great job, they came in under there estimate. Very competent and professional and would recommend them any time.


— Yelp User Review

Great shop. Quick and friendly service. If you're looking for an honest mechanic, call them up. They knew exactly what the issue was with my car with a quick description of the symptoms over the phone.


— Yelp User Review

Yet again, Holeman came through. On the way to the shop our car broke down. Holeman came to us, called a tow truck and had our car towed to his shop within minutes. He even paid the tow bill on the spot.

Not only did he go out of his way to clean a sensor, check out a weird noise at no cost, but saved me $350 over the other shop-

I will go nowhere else and would give 6 stars if I could.


— Yelp User Review

So Holman is amazing. I brought my wife's Ford Flex in to have the front struts done, which we had pre-ordered. Turns out the company sent me two right struts....this would have been a huge issue but Holman took care of it. He called around and found a vendor that swapped our Monroe strut out for the correct side. Not only that, but he took care of my wife's squeaky brakes for free!! Thanks so much. I will be back and I recommend this place to everyone!!


— Yelp User Review

five stars. Holman gave me an estimate, with a prompt appointment, and delivered excellently. Very highly recommend Encore AUTOMOTIVE.



— Yelp User Review

I have been in the auto repair business for 30 years and when I tell you that Holman and the crew at Encore is doing it the old fashioned way I know what I'm talking about. Great service and amazing prices. I never, never return the dealer because I used to be a service writer and know what goes on there. So if your looking for great service at a reasonable price Encore is the place.


— Yelp User Review

New customer, what a great shop and everyone associated with it.. I know, my two best friends both own their own auto repair business... Honest,, they really care about it.. The Car dealer shops are going to hate them!


— Yelp User Review

My 2006 Audi A4 was leaking what I thought was tranny fluid. I don't have a trusted mechanic in La Quinta and was reluctant to take it to the dealer. After a Yelp search, I took it to Encore. Holman, Erica and Lucy took over with all care that comes from a family owned business. The facility is spotless and the office staff (Erica and Lucy) were super attentive and friendly. Lucy drove me to the nearby Enterprise car rental and picked me up the next day.

I highly recommend Encore.


— Yelp User Review

Had the best experience!! Caring and honest service!! You definitely get your money's worth!! Highly recommended A+ service!!


— Yelp User Review

Holman has outstanding customer service skills and offers highly professional car care services at reasonable prices. I trust Encore with both my Honda cars and highly recommend this business for your care needs,


— Yelp User Review

Great shop had me in and out in less than an hour. Will definitely use their services again.


— Yelp User Review

Dealership Service without the Dealership price !! Encore Automotive knows Hondas & Acura


— Yelp User Review

Great service! Reasonable price! Holman gets the job done. He works on all types of cars including my Nissan. While waiting for my car, I was able to get some work done in the lounge. Wifi works great. This place is legit. I'll be getting my car serviced here from now on.
