J's Automotive
I've been going to J's for many years. The first experience I had with them was my 99 dodge neon died on me. Being female, I know how mechanics will try to finagle anything for a buck. I talked to the owner, told him what I've looked at, and he said I needed a new head gasket. Most places I would have paid lots of money for it and they would have had it out forever. I paid him a decent price and I had my baby in my possession that day. About 2 years ago I had bought a Dodge Avenger (yes.. I love dodges) and within six months my transmission went out on me. I had it towed to J's just so he could take a look at it while I worked with the dealership. Needless to say the dealership wanted me to tow it from Moreno Valley to Fontana and then they would look into it and I would have to pay at least 1/2 of what it cost. No guarantee on how soon I would have my car back. When I told the owner's son, Junior, he said I would just have to pay a really good price (less than what the dealership wanted) and he would fix it in a few days. I gave him the okay and brought him half the money. The next day at work I get a call from Junior saying my car was ready. They are amazing, they work quickly, and they give excellent prices that help a single mom like myself be able to afford getting their car fixed. I won't let anyone else touch my car and I will always depend and trust them to not screw me over when it comes to taking care of my car.

Espinoza Automotive Inc
Mr. Espinosa is not only a great mechanic but also an honest man. I was in his shop one day and a lady came in saying that she needed new brakes because she heard a noise every time that she braked. When she returned to pick her car up, Mr. Espinosa informed her that she did not need new brakes. He told her that there was dust on the brakes and it was causing the squealing sound. He told her that he had cleaned them off and he didn't charge her. Mr. Espinosa could have replaced the brakes but instead chose to do the right thing.I take my car there any time that I need work done. I have also sent several relatives and friends to Mr. Espinosa and they are all very happy with his work.

Budget Auto Repair
I came here with a lot of problems with my car but not much money. Paul and Ramsey made me feel at ease, checked out my car, and fixed the main problem to at least get me back on the road. They went over all the other things wrong with my car and discussed options and what was important and what was not. They were never pushy. Just gave me the facts and let me make my own decision. They were really honest about what it would take to fix my break down so I can continue to drive the car and put some of the other things off. It's really hard to find an honest mechanic but I found my place here.

From the minute I walked in, these guys treated me with respect and courtesy. I came in here with a pretty bad oil leak and oil underneath my car. They explained exactly what they had to do to find the problem and called me back later to tell me what they found. I needed my car the next day to drive out of town. The mechanic stayed late finishing my car. When I came to pick it up the manager introduced me to the mechanic that worked on it. So I got a really good explanation of everything that was done. I was very happy and will be recommending this mechanic.

King Auto Repair
When I had my 99 Mustang GT that had a broken radiator these guys where the cheapest around town. I took my Mustang to them and they had all the parts in and the car ready that same day. I then had an encounter with some debris on the freeway that ended underneath my car and pushed my modified exhaust and misaligned the mufflers. After it would just rattle underneath the car and I took it to them just so I can use their lift and they ended up fixing the exhaust for free. They've become real good family friends now and I trust them with the family cars.

Mike's Automotive Service
gas tank was leaking, had to tow it to mike who found and fixed the leak. on pick up, the car would start once then not start again. he spent some time looking for this problem but eventually found it and replaced the faulty part. and i thought the price was reasonable for the work he did. i wouldnt hesitate to bring my car back for repair. and he tells you what he can and cant/wont do. since i couldnt get home, he offered to have me dropped off. i am glad i found his shop through the yellow pages and i think i can trust his work.

I am really glad I came to Budget Auto. They were very fair and honest, showing me and explaining exactly what was needed. I had a weird problem noise in my Toyota that didn't happen all the time. The guys at Budget were pretty diligent and found the problem that some other mechanics couldn't find. It is nice to be driving a quiet car now. The worst part about that noise was not knowing what it was and if the car was safe. My regular mechanic who couldn't figure it out actually referred me to the guys at Budget.

My car was quickly diagnosed and repaired the same day, actually within 4 hours. The price of the repair was lower than what I'd expected to pay, and I have an older Jaguar, plus was stranded by it breaking down, so felt I was extremely vulnerable to being taken advantage of with repair charges. Instead, everything was fixed quickly for much less than I expected to pay. I really appreciated that all the questions I had were answered professionally and knowledgeably. My experience was great there.

Budget Auto did an awesome job with my truck and treated me like a king. My warranty company referred me here and I now see why Budget Auto is on their list of preferred shops. These guys gave me a ride and then picked me up. The manager kept me informed about the repairs and took care of everything with my extended warranty. I just came in and paid my $100 deductible and the rest was taken care of painlessly. This will my where I take my truck from now on.

Moreno Valley Collision Repair and Auto Painting
I came in after a minor fender bender. They did a great job with my fender - it looks like new - and they were able to clean up a number of smaller cosmetic scratches and dents for a really reasonable price. The staff is friendly and helpful, and they work hard to provide good service for a reasonable price. Although there are other shops that are closer to my house, I will always drive the extra distance to get my autobody work done at Maaco.
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.
