Someone told me once that if you have a good plumber and car mechanic you are fortunate. Well we do have a wonderful car mechanic and friends...I can’t say enough good things about these people. We trust them explicitly and have always felt that we have been treated fairly and like family.

I have followed the owners of Sunset Hills Automotive through 2 different repair shops for more than 15 years. I would trust no one else with my trucks.

Dennis Miller

I have been taking all my cars to Sunset Hills since shortly after they first opened.  Robert Cairns and Willard King are my trusted advisors for all things in automotive repair.

...The work has been performed professionally, in a timely fashion and reasonably priced. I have recommended your services to many colleagues and neighbors and have yet to receive anything but positive feedback. Keep up the great work...

Honest and Trustworthy are not words used to describe auto shops very often but at Sunset Hills Automotive that's exactly what you'll find. Knowledgeable, honest people you can trust to give your car the service that's required and nothing more at a fair price.  I highly recommend Sunset Hills Automotive for your car service needs - you won't be disappointed!

Dennis Bess

All four of us drive used cars, so it’s great to have mechanics we can really trust.

Rich and Linda Rosenberg

As a small business, cost is very important to us. I manage and maintain 4 vehicles. Sunset Hills Automotive is the only mechanic I would let touch my trucks. I give them an A+. You can’t find a more honest shop with reasonable rates.

...It is so comforting to have a mechanic that is knowledgeable and honest and who gives you an estimate with options and is willing to discuss these options. The result is that the customer always feels like they have made an informed decision when they authorize a repair and can have confidence that it will be done correctly.

David Nees
President, Fitness Resource

...After 5 vehicles, 28 visits and 5 ½ years, Sunset Hills Automotive has made me a believer and broken the habit of trying every mechanic in the neighborhood. Everything you ever wanted – understandable communication, friendly staff, honest service, and a fair price...


Thank you so much for the GREAT job detailing my Mustang today! I think it looks awesome!! I made sure to drag my coworkers out to the parking lot to check it out. You guys do good work! Keep it up! thanks again!!

Reston, VA

I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for your diligence in repairing my 91 Subaru. We are up in New York now enjoying vacation, and the car performed flawlessly, smoothly and quietly on the trip...Thanks again for all your help and dedication to my auto repairs.


I recommended you to a lady on the internet and here's her reply:...They are the ONLY auto place that I've ever seen not try and gouge a patron. One time I took my Saturn in to have it checked b/c I thought it was acting a bit squirrely, but there was nothing wrong and they charged me so little it was crazy. Most places would have made up something just to make a buck. I highly recommend them too.

Great Falls, VA

I have taking all my cars (including my son and daughter’s cars) to Willard King and Robert Cairns for the past 16 years.  I have never been disappointed with the service they have given us and continually recommend them to all my friends. Sunset Hills Automotive is the only repair shop I use.
