I think all these reviews were written Jamie himself. I did NOT have a pleasant experience with Dikes-Thronton and will never return there nor suggest it to anyone. The man was rude and money gouging. To replace my battery and alternator, he tried to charge me over $600. I called other places who quoted around $375 for parts, labor and tax. Once I questioned him why the price was so high, he got very rude and raised his voice. I'm simply asking so I can work it out with my tight finances. I chose not to let him continue with further work for I could not pay that rediculous amount. Once it came time to pay him for the work he had already done (change my battery and connectors for almost $300) he would not reason with me on 2 forms of payment for it would cost him more money to swpie 2 different cards. What, an additional $2?!

I'm not saying his work is poor for I have not found that out since this work was just completed. But when it comes to customer service and price of work, I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS PLACE!

Dikes Thornton is a great place to get auto work done. The owner, Jamie is an honest mechanic and gets the job done right the first time. I highly recommend this place and consider it the best that Ventura county and beyond has to offer.

Very courteous, fast and considerate of my time; you won't find better quality or service. My dad who ran a machine shop for 30 years and retired always goes to them whenever he needs work done and doesn't have the time.

I have been dealing with Dikes-Thornton for about 10 years and have found them to be trusted and respected. They've always repaired and maintained all of my vehicles. They will get the job done fast and use quality parts for very reasonable pricing. These guys are top notch!

Dikes Thornton Automotive is the best in the county. They do excellent work, what has to be done and keep up-to-date records. I also know Jamie Thornton keeps current on automotive training and knowledge - and they are honest. I highly recommend this site.

My Great Grandmother used to go to Dike's Cheveron on Victoria Ave. Now his son Jamie has moved and has his own garage on Main St. I not only trust him with my car, but I trust his judgement and his fair pricing. My dad used to be a mechanic, and when he is too busy to look at my car, he sends me to Dikes Thornton Automotive. That is all the recommendation I need. He is usually pretty busy so its best to make an appointment.
