BUYER BEWARE: CHECK FACTS- MUST BARTER AS THIS NEW OWNER IS NOT TRUTHFUL OR HONEST.It is unfortunate that Ming has sold his business to this crook. I think the new owners name is either John or Alex (not sure) but one thing I do know for sure is that he does not hesitate to over price everything and he is not an honest person. If he thinks that you are not aware of what things cost, he will screw you so badly and have no remorse. However, looks like he has kept some of the same mechanics that Ming had and has hired uncertified new help. So depending on who works on your vehicle, you may be in for great disappointment. I say BUYER BEWARE of this dishonest new owner. Never take his first word for granted. Get a full explanation of what needs to be done on your vehicle and then either go online to find out how much items really cost. or get a second opinion. Cause TRUST ME, he is not HONEST and will use the biggest SCREW to get over on you.I've been going to Ming for over 16 years. During that time, I've had 3 vehicles. 2 used & 1 almost New started with 20k miles. Ming & his mechanics have always done a great job with them all. When my almost new vehicle had an issue, I took it back to the dealer. The price of any work, Replacement and labor on the almost new vehicle at the Dealer was unbelievably expensive. Paid the dealer’s price the first time then went to Ming to compare and found that while it was more or less in the same range, Ming always came in lower in every way. Secondly, the work done at the dealer was always sloppy and incomplete whereas Ming's mechanics were precise in their diagnosis, professional in their work, quick in their delivery, AND excellent in their customer Service Plus lower-priced compared to the Dealer and other shops in the Canoga Area.

I used Car Talk to find this shop after feeling like I was getting completely hosed by the service dept at my local BMW dealer. I wish I had found Klaus ages ago. We took him the 2000 BMW 3 wagon that my son inherited as his first car. It needed a new transmission and a bunch of other small fixes. We could tell that our Bavarian car knew it was in good Bavarian hands with Klaus. Klaus had the car ready on the day he promised and it is running better than it has in years. I hesitate to recommend Klaus here - because I'd selfishly like to keep him secret - but he is terrific and deserves to have more people know what a gem he is. He's a very pleasant and genial man on top of being an expert and honest mechanic, and he is very pleased to show you his Master (Meister) degree.

Mike Willard Automotive
When a car breaks down, it can be daunting to find a trustworthy repair shop.I have used Pat’s services for my own vehicles and regularly recommend him to family and friends. My cousin had taken his car to another shop—not once, but 5 times! He would drive the car home. In the next day or two have problems again. Take it back and get charged again for another ‘problem’. I recommended Pat. He discovered it was an intermittent problem and solved it. My cousin was very thankful. I like it when people are thankful to me. I want more of it ☺.I highly recommend Pat and Mike Willard Automotive for honest, cost-effective, highly knowledge repair service He gets the job done right the first time!

Great prices, great service, honest & trustworthy. I've been getting my tires here for years because they have very good pricing and don't jerk you around with extra fees. Recently the dealer told my wife that she needed new front brakes so we took her car here to have them done. They inspected the brakes and informed her that we didn't need them yet, talking her out of the sale. Obviously when the time comes for new brakes we will be taking the car here. We have also used them for other service such as shock replacement and flat repair and it's always been a great experience.

Mr. Geier has worked on four vehicles of mine over a period of twelve years. He rebuilt a BMW 3.0 CS for me, replacing the carbs with Webbers. He is the only authentic, German- trained, master mechanic I ever found in LA. He also rebuilt a Range Rover and a Land Rover, including engine, electrical, suspension, etc. They are now reliable, perfectly operating wehicles, which if you've ever owned a Range Rover you know how unusual that is. If you really need more detail I would be happy to furnish more at warrensherman@centurytel.net

Class 'N Color Auto Body
These guys are great! I recently had a fender bender repair done by this shop. They did and excellent job... ordering Ford OEM parts ahead of time and then completing the repair within three days, as promised, for a little less than the estimate. They even did a couple of extras and cleaned the car very nicely. I highly recommend Class N' Color; they're pros. Mark W. ; West Hills

Roadrunner Auto Sales
I only have a very low budget but I need a car. I went to Roadrunner Auto Sales and told the salesperson this case. He was professional and he has a great manner. He didn't underestimate me but he suggested the best solution for my case. He recommended a Ford 2012 to me. This car was in good condition and cheap, it was met my needs. Thank to him for this achievement.

Tips & Advices
Yes. New tires purchased online can often be priced lower than ones at a tire dealership. Buyers can often avoid state sales taxes and locate hard-to-find tire styles and sizes, but will still have to locate a local tire installer and pay sometimes high shipping costs.
The average cost of a set of new tires is $637, with a range of between $525-$725. In addition, installation includes mounting and balancing, alignment, and disposal of old tires.
The vehicle is raised and the old wheels are removed, then the old tires are removed from the wheels. The lug nuts, wheels, and valve stems are inspected and replaced as needed. The new tires are mounted and sealed, then inflated and balanced. The wheels are then replaced on the car. The average installation takes approximately 45 minutes.
Agencies such as the Tire Industry Association promotes tire safety through advocacy and education to the industry including: manufacture, sales, repair, service and recycling. Seek a full-service tire dealer who carries a wide variety of tire types and brands and asks about the type of driving you normally do.
  • Move your car to a safe location.
  • Turn on your car’s safety lights, apply the parking brakes and remove the hubcap if there is one.
  • Loosen the lug nuts with a lug wrench (but do not remove them), raise the vehicle with a jack and then fully remove the lugnuts.
  • Remove the flat tire and replace it with the spare tire.
  • Tighten the lug nuts by hand, lower the car and then tighten them fully with the lug wrench.
