As Mini of Mountain View isn’t taking appointments currently, this leaves a lot of people clamoring for other places to get service done on their cars. We were happy to learn that Jennifer Timmermann has relocated to this little shop in Santa Clara that does work on MINIs (both late and early models), called Santa Clara Auto Tech, or SCAT for short 😉 how funny is that?
Unless you’ve been living under a rock the past few years, South Bay MINI owners know the name Jennifer Timmermann.
Miniologist and mechanic, she has always been awesome every time I’ve taken my MINI into her former digs at Alison BMW (aka MINI of Mountain View) Everyone I’ve spoken to agrees she knows what she’s doing, takes the time to go over tech specs with people, and exudes the friendly, fun attitude the MINI community is known for.
S.C.A.T. is open Monday through Saturday, their number is 408-296-2166. They are located at 1481 Main Street, off El Camino Real between Monroe and Lafayette. From either SF or SJ, take 101 and exit De la Cruz toward Santa Clara. This turns into Lewis, then right onto Main Street — easy peasy! It’s a rather nondescript white building with red lettering.
They have gotten some good parts contacts set up, as well as the owner there is also the mechanic – so they are very thorough! And best of all we have Jennifer’s familiar face and experience to assure us the job will be done right.
Jennifer says please feel free to call if you need any help with anything, and tell them Miniology sent you!
