"Dave is a top notch guy. He was honest and upfront about the issues and had a solution that didn't break the bank. He provided options and quick service. Highly recommend and will return if needed (But hopefully not needed)."
"Customer service is an A+. Honest shop with fair pricing! Got my transmission rebuilt and also a tune up for super cheap compared to the local competition. Not to mention the national lifetime warranty on my transmission! Thank's Dave we are glad to have you and Enrique as our new mechanics!!! Happy Holidays!!!!"
"Great customer service!! Dave (I think that is his name .. I'm terrible at names) really help me out I did the snap finance, which really helped on my son's birthday!!! Dave took really good care of my car. I'll definitely come back again. Thanks Dave you not only made my day but my son's day too!!!"
"NO NO NO NO!! Absolute worst experience with an auto shop I've ever had. DO NOT GO HERE. Was absolutely robbed with unnecessary work that ended up causing horrible issues that were ultimately irreparable. Had to take my car back 5 times and they still never got me sorted out, problems kept getting worse and worse. The last time I brought it in they sent my entire transmission out of house because they were incapable of fixing their mistakes (main bearing blew 3 times, wrecking gears and destroying case). Problems so severe that I ended up getting rid of the car. I cannot stress enough how much I regret ever taking my car here. $6,000 down the drain, plus the cost of rentals since they had my car in total for over 2 months. This place is a joke. Zero communication the entire time, nobody ever called me to update despite my specific requests to be kept in the loop. They got new management and fired everyone that worked on my car and I hoped that would help things - brought the car BACK in was promised everything would be taken care of, picked it up a week later and all of the problems persisted. No change whatsoever. ABSOLUTELY HORRENDOUS EXPERIENCE."
"This store is under new managment. Dave has been very helpful. Brought my car in for an oil change and they got to it straight away. Highly recommend this shop."
"Have taken my truck to this location twice since moving to Huntington Beach. Fast diagnostic/service and fair pricing made the process of getting my truck..."
