"What great mechanics. My car had an issue that was worse than I thought, and they were wonderful about keeping me informed of what went wrong and how they were going to fix it. Great communication. Very reasonable price. Quality guys. I've been to dozens of mechanics over the years. This is as good as it gets."

"Chris kept in contact with me for the duration of my brake job and offered a fair price. Came in special on Sunday so I could pick up my vehicle. Would do business with again. "
"I had rebuilt the engine and transmission 18 years ago when my dad passed the car to me ! So with maybe 4000 miles I was in denial of needing a transmission again ! South Bay Auto Repair , had great comments on the internet and I agree ! He with experience knew within moments I needed a transmission and also that he would only be able to referee me ! Yet took the extra 15 minutes plus to help me understand why ! A 1966 Mustang Convertable that's been in the family and one day will be my daughters . He just did the right thing invested in the community!"
"These guys have made a new customer for life. Went in yesterday after a brake pad went out, not only did they do the service in a day they definitely kept the bill more than reasonable and were extremely helpful and thorough. Cannot recommend them enough. Eric and sons we're fantastic! Thanks again guys!"
"Very honest and straightforward. I went in with what I thought was a transmission problem. The mechanics diagnosed the problem quickly and accurately. I had 3 broken engine mounts and my car was ready for pick up the next day. The final bill was the total they initially quoted. Everyone was really nice and friendly. My 4 year old son said "I liked those guys that fixed our car!""
"Eric and his crew are masters. Aside from being patient and helpful with me when my transmission crapped out, they barely charged me anything after a full service because it was no good. But they got it well enough to get to the dealership for trade-in, and advised me on my new car purchase. They've also taken great care of every referral I've sent that way. Much love to their team. You gotta have a guy in this day and age. They are it."
