"I have used Sunnyside Repair on numerous occasions and have been very pleased with the service. Removed left front tire and inner fender for access then removed complete headlight assembly and replaced left headlight assembly." Gayna M, Salem, OR

"I took my car into Sunnyside Repair for the first time today.  A friend recommended them, so I decided to try them out.  I must say I am very happy with their service.  I needed my blinker fixed and also asked about a fuel smell coming from my car.  They found a fuel leak!  My car was repaired in about 3 hours and for a great price.  Alex, the owner, was friendly, honest, and informative.  He stayed open late so I could pick my car up that day and even gave me a discount for being a student.  Great service!  I will be a repeat customer.” Chris K., Salem, OR

"Thanks for the great job on my work truck, fast friendly and honest service as always! Thanks again." James K., Salem, OR

‏“I have had Alex (McClelland) working on my cars since 2006.  Never have I had a bad experience. Sunnyside Repair Center is the only mechanic we use. I like to do my own repairs but when I can't, I go to Sunnyside Repair. Also, there are those times I start a repair and it doesn't turn out "quite right" so I see Alex and he bails me out. He doesn't even dog me about working on it myself when I should have taken it to him in the first place! Super!!!” Joe O., Salem, OR

“I have brought my cars to Alex since about 2002. He has always performed high quality work and for a reasonable price. I dislike dealers and garages that PAD THE ORDER as I call it. They try to do repairs that are not really needed. Alex does not PAD the order. He has saved me money while doing top quality work. I recommended him to all of my friends. Mechanics like Alex are hard to find, so I stick with him.” Michael F., Salem, OR 

"Alex McClelland, the owner, is a fair, honest, nice guy who finds time for loyal customers. Alex does quality work and to back it up, if something goes wrong he will take care of it for you. Customer service is wonderful, you help him, he helps you. No surprises with Alex, if he runs into another problem, rather than fix it and charge you, he will let you know about it and sees what you want to do. I have been back to him many times with my old Saturn and my Cavalier, and will continue to go back when I need it." Chad, Salem, OR

"We rarely have had to use a mechanic, as people in our family are very mechanical and can usually handle routine repairs. When we do use a mechanic, we can count on Sunnyside Repair Centers, and Alex, to do repairs correctly, diagnose problems accurately and provide great service. They are a business you can count on." Margaret O., Salem, OR

"The air conditioning went out in my conversion van. I took it to Les Schwab but they don't do air conditioning but recommended this place we have never heard of. The people at Sunnyside Repair Centers were so nice! It's just a small business and even though short handed that day, they immediately went to work. We had called other dealers and were told it could cost from $150 to $1,000 depending on what they find. Our bill with Sunnyside Repair Centers was only $169! I know many other places might have sadly taken advantage of us. I am glad to have found a new mechanic, Alex McClelland, who we can trust." Charlene M., Salem, OR

"Alex quickly diagnosed my car problem, took the time to explain exactly what needed to be done, and costs involved. Sunnyside's prices are very reasonable and I highly recommend them to anyone needing car repairs." Angela T., Portland, OR

"I took my rather aged car to Alex at Sunnyside Repair Center, for repairs. After taking time to diagnose my vehicle, Alex advised me that the cost of repairs would likely exceed the car's value. I very much appreciate receiving the free evaluation, and even more the honest assessment. In a situation where he could have gotten extra work, he chose the route of integrity by not accepting it - in my best interest. I'm impressed!" Ani K, Salem, OR

"I had a car emergency and Sunnyside worked hard to get my vehicle fixed quickly so I could get back on the road. I am very happy with the work done and it was affordable. Facebook "like"!. Jesse L., Salem, OR

"I was new to the area and I live in South Salem and had a problem with my car. I decided to give Sunnyside Repair Center a chance, since talking with a few neighbors and some of them had gone into Sunnyside and they had good service and fair pricing, so I gave them a shot. I was very surprised to find a big town shop with a small town feel. Alex McClelland (the owner) went out of his way to get me going again and that meant a lot to my family. I highly recommend them for your car repair needs! I also heard they now have a web site even! See it at . I'll continue going in whenever I need car repairs or service and I tell all of my friends!" Bill A., Salem, OR

I've been bringing my cars to Alex for the last several years and have always been very satisfied with the timeliness and quality of work done and the price I've been charged. This is truly a place where I have 100% confidence that I can bring my car and tell Alex to do whatever needs to be done, and that is exactly what will happen, and for a fair price. It's great to have that kind of faith in automotive shop!" Roger D., Salem, OR
