Commonwealth Transmission & Auto Repair
I was having some problems with my truck (2007 F-150), related to my transmission, and refused to take it to the dealership since the warranty had expired and their labor fees are through the roof. I was referred to Commonwealth Transmission by a close friend who I rely on for car advice.I spoke to Edgar from Commonwealth Transmission over the phone to explain my issue. He was extremely helpful and very pleasant to speak with. I took my truck to his shop so that he could test-drive the vehicle and determine what was wrong with the transmission. Edgar confirmed that the cause of the problem was due to the torque converter. He took the time to review the year and model of my truck to verify if the issue was reported as common, if there were any recalls on the model regarding the torque converter, confirmed that the warranty was expired before performing any repairs and even took me along during an additional test-drive so that I could review the diagnostic details.Edgar was very patient and worked with my schedule since I live in OC but work in LA. He would stay later for me to get to his shop and even stopped by on a Sunday, when he was closed, just so that I could drop my truck off.The repair was completed promptly and my truck is like new again. The replacement part has a 1 year/12000 mile warranty. I also got a free oil change. The price was unbeatable.Overall, Edgar and his staff were very professional, personable and treated me with sincere respect. I highly recommend them for any vehicle repairs you may need. Their work is very reliable and dependable. I will go back to Commonwealth Transmission for all future concerns and potential repairs. I have been and will highly recommend Edgar and his team to all of my friends and family. I am very happy with their work.

Fullerton Auto Repair Clinic & Body Shop
This shop has had my Honda Civic for over 3 weeks now for a simple engine swap. The first week I called them every day and asked for the status of the new engine that they had ordered and was told every day that it should be arriving that day. At the end of that week I got a phone call telling me that the shop they had purchased the engine from had sold it and they had to find me a new one, which tells me that for every day I called, they didn't contact the shop with my engine. The second week they finally found an engine on Wednesday but didn't put my car on a lift until the following Monday, telling me that my car should be ready by today Friday the 22nd. I called them yesterday (Thursday the 21st) and was told that my car shouldn't be ready until next week. This shop has screwed me over at every turn, I have never dealt with an auto shop with customer service like this and plan on reporting them to the BBB. You only get one star because there isn't an option for no stars. If you want your car back in a timely fashion DO NOT USE THIS SHOP. Update: I received a call on Friday the 22nd at 4:30 telling me my car was ready for pick up, and was able to pick it up on Saturday. The quality of work is good, although I've had to pull a few tags off of new parts that were installed. I was also called every day this week to be asked to take down my reviews.

Discounted Wheel Warehouse
I ordered four Michelin Defender 195/60R15 tires, they came in two separate packages [2 tires strapped together in each package, not in a box], had WALMART install them, they seem to work great. I emailed this company (Discounted Wheel Warehouse) twice [to ask them how I get the mail-in rebate money] and they never replied back to my emails. I called them on the phone and first selected option 2 [Tires] and was sent into someone's voice mail; I immediately hung-up and called them back and selected option 1 [Order Questions] and they answered the phone after about 2 minutes waiting. The girl on the phone was able to help me with my question on how to get the mail-in rebate money by filling out a form on the Michelin website. I would have gave them a 5-star rating if they replied back to one of my two emails; and if they would have helped the people here with the 1-star ratings. It seems to be a hit or miss with this company. Hopefully they can fix the problems they've been having.

Chief Mobile Mechanic
I had to close a deal on a used car quickly and called Ali on a rainy morning to ask him to check it out giving him less than 1 hour notice. He initially agreed but the rain started to pour. He called me to decline the job stating he could not do a do his best work because of the pouring rain. This showed me he was a really good person and excellent mechanic who has pride in his work. Luckily, the rain ceased and he was able to give the car a complete inspection and his approval to buy the car. I was blown away by his experience and knowledge about the car. His price was very reasonable and his mobile service saved me a lot of time. I was so fortunately to have found him and highly recommend Chief Mobile Mechanic!

Ali is very nice, friendly, honest, and charges very fair prices. He will go to your house (or wherever) and fix your car! He's fixed my car twice. Most recently, my check engine light was on. It said crankshaft sensor and camshaft sensor. Crank shaft parts and labor was less and $200. Or it could have been the camshaft which would be much more (maybe 4,5,600$). Ali's so knowledgeable that he thought it was crankshaft. He is not out to rip you off with expensive repairs.

Commonwealth Transmission & Auto Repair
These guys are good and they have the best prices. My 25 Year Old GMC truck needed a new transmission. I didn't want to spend a lot of money on the repair based on the value of the truck. I hired Commonwealth Transmission and they did an outstanding job for nearly half the cost of other shops in the area. Edgar is the Owner/Manager/Head Mechanic. He knows his stuff. Very TrustworthyI strongly recommend these guys

Discounted Wheel Warehouse
Saw their big sign from the freeway and stopped by to check it out.Nice showroom with a lot of designs of wheels , didnt buy anything for myself but did bring my mom's car to get new tires .They did alignment and tire installation very quick. I had checked around for these Pirelli tires and they were beating the other locals with quiet a $ difference.good pleasant experience!!
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.
