Top Gear Auto Body
Very good work. Very trustworthy body shop. Other body shops charge way to much for small jobs and Top Gear has low prices. will always come back to Top Gear in the future.

Sangera Suburu
My recent purchased of a 2018 Crosstrek from Sangera leads me to UNCONDITIONALLY RECOMMEND this vendor. Our salesman, Bobbi Malec, was both enormously courteous and totally informed. The inquiry-test drive-contract negotiations-finalizing the deal process was carried out with perfect professionalism and efficiency. I got a better deal than I expected! From the start, a detailed offer IN WRITING was given my wife and I, which allowed us to compare Sangera's deal with other dealerships. The entire process took four (4) months (on our part), and this delay ultimately led us to buy a 2018 model which we absolutely love. No "hard sell"; no "let's see the sales manager", no "this deal is only available for today" tactics were ever used. Financing on better terms than I could have obtained for myself, was secured swiftly the night we chose to "pull the trigger". Paperwork was completed immediately. I have compared both "deals" and dealerships throughout all of Southern California for Subarus and I am convinced that the place to buy is Sangera.

Joe's Auto Repair
Let's just start off by saying if I could give 0 stars I would. I'm a 22 year old women and this is my first vehicle so it's safe to say I don't know much about vehicles. I brought my car in with a coolant leak and was informed I needed a new radiator. The man gave me a reasonable price and I said yes. I thought I found a good mechanic who I could trust, sadly I was mistaken. I spoke to my grandpa who asked me to check to make sure he was also replacing the theromstat, so I called Joe's and he told me no he wasn't. My grandpa told him he needs to do what any GOOD mechanic would do and replace it. Joe still didn't replace it even after we asked him to. Joe told me the car would be done that night but probably tomorrow morning. I go to a show 45 minutes away and get called at 7pm and told I need to come get my car in an hour or he would leave it on the street in a not so great neiborhood. Luckily my aunt was able to get it and asks him if he replaced the hoses, again he says no but informs her that I need to replace them and the radiator cap soon. My aunt asks why he didn't tell me that and he says he only does what needs to be fixed "now". He is a horrible machanic, I called and asked 4 other machanic their advise and they all said he was terrible and that you should replace all of that when replacing a radiator, which I gladly would have paid for to avoid a problem later on. Also, to top it all off tried to scam me out of $10. Said the inspection would be $15 and labor would be $75 which would be $90 but tried to charge me $100. If you like mechanics who rip you off this is the place to go. Thanks Joe's we will not come again!!

Performance Automotive #1
This shop is second to none and I can see why they were voted the best mechanic shop in Bakersfield. While traveling through Bakersfield with my family, we developed car trouble. I needed to be to work the following day and I was in a real bind. I was considering renting a car but the auto rental companies were either closed or did not have any rentals on this Saturday afternoon. After discussing my situation with the guys at Performance Automotive #1, they offered to work late to help get us home. They worked until 9:00pm and got us back on the road. They worked 6 hours after their closing time to get us back on the road due to their closing time being 3:00 pm on Saturdays. Their communication was great and they kept me updated on the progress of the work on my vehicle. I can not say enough good things about these guys!

Performance Automotive #1
I was told by the Chevrolet dealer that I needed a new engine at a cost of over $6,000.00!I got a quote from Performance Automotive that was considerably less. After taking my vehicle to Performance Automotive I was told that all I needed was a starter! Wow, the dealer failed to diagnose my vehicle correctly and charged me over $100.00I highly recommend Performance Automotive. They are honest and they have much lower prices than the dealer.

Lupes Auto Express & Repair
Lupe has been my mechanic since 1999. My close friends and family members have used Lupe's Auto Express for their vehicles and all have thanked me for referring them to Lupe, whom they described as Honest and reliable. I have tried other small and big chain mechanic shops just to compare and have been either overcharged or lied to in regard to work "that was needed."

Naranjo Auto Sales
I have to say this place was awesome the sales man was great the inventory awesome and most of all the owner was great. They are willing to take the time to get all the right price etc. I would say that I would love to buy another vehicle from them anytime. I think that everyone is different and should always check the place for there self. We looked at the Yelp reviews but chose to go make our own decisions and man the lot on Ming is awesome.

Tips & Advices
Using a variety of tools and processes, many of which require specialized training, auto body mechanics primarily repair cosmetic and structural damage to vehicles after accidents occur. They can also enhance a vehicle’s appearance and performance by replacing and adding new parts to a vehicle’s body.
This depends on the severity of the work that needs to be done. Something such as paintless dent repair for a few small dents can take an hour. Whereas auto body repairs for damages caused by a major accident can take multiple days to correct.
All auto body parts can be repaired but there is a threshold for the level of repairs possible. Parts can be damaged beyond repair and would need to be wholly replaced.
Auto body parts can be made from a wide variety of materials, usually based on what the part’s purpose is. Vehicle frames body panels, bumpers, roof racks, and other items that need to be strong and durable are usually constructed from steel, which is known for its durability and resistance to rust and high temperatures. But aluminum is quickly becoming a popular material of construction due to its lightweight yet durable nature. Body kits and other aftermarket parts like spoilers and hoods can be constructed from one form of plastic or another.
Yes, the vast majority of car makes and models have aftermarket parts available for many of their components. But higher-end vehicles typically have less aftermarket parts available since they often use specialized materials and manufacturing processes that are difficult to duplicate for many aftermarket manufacturers.
