We've taken our Miata to PR Motorsports ever since we got it in 2004; the previous owner also took it there, which is how we heard about them. Their customer service is excellent! They take the time to explain things clearly and don't push services on you that you don't need. They tell you frankly which issues are more and less urgent and let you make the decision about what to do. The small size of the shop ensures that you get personalized service, and everyone there is very friendly and helpful, including the mechanics themselves! I trust their judgment on our car, and my husband, who knows a lot more about the workings of an engine than I do, also trusts their opinions highly. They are quick about getting things done, and offer rides to and from BART, which is a huge help. I have no reservations about recommending to PR Motorsports to anyone needing their car serviced!

I can't say enough about Rick and his crew at PR Motorsports. I've been using Rick since 2000 and he has serviced my 1992 Miata, 1994 Miata, 1994 Spec Miata Race Car, and 1997 Mazda Protege. Rick is honest, reliable, and does great maintenance & repair work at a more than fair price. Rick will tell you exactly what you need and don't need, and I'd wager a bet that most of Rick's customers are long time customers like myself. As long as I can still drive and as long as PR Motorsports is still open, I will always take my car there.

I have been taking my Acura to PR Motorsports for 12 years, and also took my husband's old Miata there for several years. I agree with all the things written above about Rick, Laura, Hector and PR in general, but wanted to add that PR is incredibly woman-friendly. I am a woman who came from a family where I was taught to be suspicious of automotive shops. "Watch out!" they told me. "You can never be sure when they are trying to cheat you." That was especially true of me, considering the depths of my ignorance then and now, about the guts of the car I drive. So I want to praise PR Motorsports to the heavens for how they have handled me as a female customer. I have consistently experienced being treated as an equal and having things explained to me as much or as little as I wanted. This despite the fact that Rick is a Miata racer and takes his cars very seriously--many another racer might be condescending towards women, but Rick never is. I feel respected and have, over the years, at times called up the shop with small questions about my car or about selling the Miata or purchasing our next car (a Prius). All the folks there have always responded with helpful answers. I see that at least one other reviewer said they would not buy a car PR won't work on. That's a great policy and I had the same policy until my husband and I decided to buy our Prius. We're very happy with it and fortunately PR has been able to do almost all the maintenance on it so far. And I just found out the other day that Rick is planning on eventually being able to fully service hybrids. Whoopee! I am happy to continue the rest of my life driving 45 mins from Albany to Hayward just to have PR work on my car.

I initially found PR motorsports in the early days of the internet before review engines like this. People on the miata forum raving about his service. I have been a customer for over 11 years now and wouldn't consider taking my miata anywhere else. This "boutique" shop listens. and with years of experience they know the in's and out's of miata's. When I need advice on modifications, or maintenance, Rick Weldon is the first person I call. I recently purchased a new car that Rick does not service (it's not one of his specialties), but he went out of his way to make some phone calls, pull on his long-time connections and not only gave me great advice, but worked out an outstanding deal on the right tires for my specific application. and it's not just rick. The entire organization follows his lead. I can guarantee you'll get the right job, whether it's maintenance or modifications, at the right price. And to top it off, everyone there is friendly and responsive. If you care about your car, PR motorsports is the place you want to take it.

I've been a loyal PR Motorsports customer for years. They always provide great customer service and perform high quality work at a competitive price. One of the main reasons why I always return to PR Motorsports is because they are trust worthy and honest. I know that they will only recommend and perform work that is necessary. On one occasion, I had scheduled a major maintenance work on one of my cars, but Rick checked his records and reminded me that he had completed that work on my last visit; therefore I only needed an oil change instead. Rick saved me a lot of money by only performing the work that was needed. Thanks Rick!

Absolutely the best! I shopped for an auto mechanic for my car as carefully as I shopped for a pediatrician for my kids. I was looking for someone I could trust to tell me the truth about my car's condition, keep me updated about any work needed, and keep it in safe running order since I transport the most valuable things in the world--my kids. I also wanted someone who wasn't going to overcharge me. PR Motorsports is my choice. Over the years, he's cared for our two minivans and now our two Toyota hybrids. Owner Rick Weldon and his crew's honesty, integrity and professional (and efficient) service have made me a loyal customer. I drive all the way from Oakland/Piedmont area to Hayward each time. Their service is that good and that valuable to me! give them a shot. You won't be disappointed. And, if you're the kind that likes to wait--they now offer free internet access!

PR Motorsports is owned by a Mazda/Miata enthusiast, Rick Weldon, who races these babies in his spare time. He and his team know these cars inside and out and can fix just about anything. It's worth a long drive to take your import to these guys -- they will treat her right.

It says Acura but they work on a lot of different make cars, including my super-spiffy craptastic Mazda, with a rotary engine no less. Yeah me. So they've pretty much been the only shop to ever touch my baby in her special places, since I got her all those years back. And until recently I took their services for granted, until visiting another shop behind their back; which only caused me to run straight back to them with no hard feelings on their part, or awkward silences. They're small, honest, and I think to be a mechanic there you have to have pretty eyes, because the only two guys who have worked on my car have gorgeous blue and green eyes (respectively). But they always take the time to explain all the work to me, and offer cheaper parts, and never try to push unnecessary work on me.
