Mission Bell Motorworks BMW Independent Service
I'm going to give you an in-depth review to help make your final decision to come to Mission Bell Motorworks and get your car worked on here: I was looking for a car shop to add new rotors and break pads for my 2011 Infiniti M37s for a while and stumbled on Mission Bell Motorworks on Yelp. I called up the shop and asked for a quote and Rob pretty sold me saying that he does real good, genuine work, and will get the job right. So I set up an appointment with them and right when I got to the shop he took the time to show me his certifications of being a certified BMW Independent Service shop. The waiting room is very cosy and offers free wifi so the wait will be worth your while, and also has Netflix on his large flat screen. While waiting for my car I was watching Breaking Bad lol. But before he started working on my car, he had to ask for authorization and the contract for my car. He explained to me that the work he does will be done right and treat my car like his own and not treated like a random car to get the job done quickly. The price we talked about were really solid for the amount of work he did. He will not cheat you on the price, he really gives you the best deal. The service I got was a complete front and rear rotor and brake change, complete brake flush, complete power steering fluid, and complete coolant flush. For the quality of the work and genuineness of his word, I highly and truly recommend this place to get your car worked on. Even though they are BMW serviced, I brought my Infiniti because I knew he was trust worthy and did he prove me right. My car pretty much feels like brand new, and the fluids look clean as a whistle! I can't thank this place enough for doing thequality work they do.So if your looking for an automative shop, Mission Bell Motorworks is the place to go to. I back this shop 100% of the way!

Fix It Right Auto Repair & Muffler
back several months ago I had a blow out on my trailer and all tire shops were closed and there was a guy who had tattoos on his neck and at first I was thinking I am in a bind this guy could not help me because they were burglarized before this and someone stole all their equipment, This guy told me where other tire shops were however they were all closed and no one could help me. There was a motorcycle shop on the opposite corner and saw I was in a bind and tried selling me a tire for 90 which maybe was worth 20? they saw my situation and tried taking advantage of it however this nice guy with the tattoo on his neck said don't pay it yet lets see if it fits anyways it did not fit so then he asked someone who came and brought me a tire for half the cost and then we realized another tire was about to blow and he put the other one on! Never judge a book by its cover this guy was an honest and a blessing to me and I am so grateful and I am writing this several months after this happen maybe 6 months ago? I just still think of your generosity and want to say thank you (what ever your name was from the bottom of our families heart!)

A Import Specialist Auto Repair
All difficult qualities to find among mechanics! We bought a used 1999 Dodge Cummins Deisel and took it to A Import Specialist for a complete maintenance and safety check. We were thinking it was probably going to need some other things done as well. Every time you take your car to the mechanic they always tell you you need all of these additional things done as well. The mechanic was very honest with us. He didn't fabricate things that weren't necessary. We have never had a mechanic tell us something wasn't necessary and we didn't need to spend money we were willing to spend! The truck runs so strong now and we gained mpg's! They gave us a really good deal, quality work, honest advice, and delivered the truck when promised. We were very happy with our experience and have brought more vehicles to them since. It's such a relief to finally have a mechanic we can trust!

This place is nothing short of amazing! Took my E90 in for an oil pan gasket leak and I was not disappointed. I was super close to taking my car to a BMW dealership to get the repair done but after reading all of Mission Bell Motorwork's reviews and speaking to Ricardo multiple times over the phone, his shop won me over. He is a very knowledgeable and persistent person which led me to believe he was going to deliver quality work. And that is exactly what he did. Ricardo has a great reputation- an average 5 star rating across the board, and it is well earned. His customer service is great and you can tell that he's passionate about what he does-which is something I highly respect. His prices are great and he over delivers! What more could you want? Extremely appreciative of Ricardo, I'll definitely come back to him for ANY work I need done on my BMW.

This shop is the best in the inland empire. I currently own a 2009 bmw 335i, I started having problems with the car overheating, due to a bad water pump. I took the car to bmw of riverside, but they didn't have any openings to get my car in, plus the service department was closed. Luckily i found Mission Bell Motorworks, Which was the only shop open on a Sunday. And let me tell you, i will be back for any future service or repair. He had my car done the next day. Ricardo is a BMW certified mechanic with all his certifications on the wall to prove, and knows exactly what he's doing. Im very happy with the service. He used nothing but original parts, for half the price of what i would of paid at BMW. I recommend this shop to anyone looking for any service or repair, this is the place to go.

I highly recommend Mission Bell Motorworks to anyone in the inland empire. The honesty and high level of integrity that Ricardo demonstrated in the initial conversation about my 2006 325i BMW is like no other. I came in because I was having battery problems, Ricardo put me at ease. He not only inspected my battery, but he did a mini inspection on my car. He took the time to show me, other visible repairs that need to be done. I really appreciate a Repair shop that not only cares about making money, but really cares about it's customers best interest. If you are looking for a BMW repair shop that will get the job done and truly cares about your best interest, this is the place to come. You will not be disappointed!

My family has been coming here since, well, I don't even know when. The service here has ALWAYS been fantastic. Each of the mechanics' knowledge and ability is out of this world. Not only do they work well, but they actually care about ethics. With as many businesses willing to screw with your money, this is NOT one of them. I repeat: this is NOT one of them. :) Bruce runs a fantastic shop! I recommend this car shop to anyone and everyone who needs simple maintenance, tune ups, whatever. They are also very knowledgable about outside resources, such as other shops and when places such as Auto Zone have deals. I'm always so pleased when I come here.

Mission Bell Motorworks is the place to go for a variety of reasons. First and foremost, the professionalism is unparalleled. They ensure that you are aware of all the possible options for a particular service. I went in for an oil change and was told of the different oil tiers that can go into the engine. The people at this place know what they are doing and can perform dealer quality work for a fraction of the price. The lobby area is also nice because of the wifi, tv, and reading material. Overall, I had a great experience and would recommend this place for anyone that wants a professional to look at your vehicle.

After my first time at mission bell motor works, I'm going to bring my 07 335i here from now on. I was being helped by Ricardo, he's a BMW certified mechanic. He really knows his bimmers, this was important to me as a customer because I also have a passion for BMW and wanted to find a mechanic I could trust with mine. The best things about this place is that he used all authentic BMW parts and Ricardo does work that exceeds the quality of the dealership, so you don't have to worry about authenticity or sub par work. This place is great for people looking for an alternative to the way too pricey dealership.

I have a newer 535I. My car was having problems turning on...I took it down to Mission Bell Motorworks. They diagnosed it quickly and turned out it was my fuel pump. Their prices were fair and I was very happy with their work. I usually go to Murrieta BMW for service but with financial situations I decided to give MBM a try. The shop is BMW certified and the technicians are highly experienced. I can honestly say that after the service they provided there is no need for me to ever go back to the dealer and pay their outrageous prices. I am very happy and I wil go back to MBM whenever my car needs service.
Tips & Advices
Among the common scams pulled are needless repairs, where a garage charges you for work that isn't necessary. Another popular one is attracting customers through a cheap oil change or tire pressure check. Then, when you your car is being repaired, they give you a long list of other corrections they'd like to make, therefore boosting the total cost of your bill. The best way to combat these types of problems is getting a written estimate before work is done so you can see how much repairs are expected to cost. If the final bill is higher than the estimate projected, ask to specifically see the work. Make sure information is put in writing as well. If a problem remains, you can have proof that work was not done to your satisfaction.
For winter driving, features such as the defroster, heater and exhaust system are paramount. Look in your owner's manual for specific directions on how features should be checked and repaired. Many newer cars have a cabin air filter that can be replaced when needed, allowing warm air to continue to flow in. Also, check tires before winter driving, as they need to be at the proper pressure to perform well on snow and ice.
In the spring and summer, you want to be sure your air conditioner and cooling systems work correctly. Given the high temperatures, overheating is a common problem. Look over the system by ensuring there is enough coolant available. If it needs to be refilled, it is best to open the hood and add more to the car before it gets too warm out. Also, clean out fan ducts and other ventilation sources necessary for summertime driving.
Some fixes to your car can be done without paying a specialist. Issues like replacing oil and air filters are relatively simple, with instructions provided in the owner's manual on how to make these changes. The same goes for replacing broken windshield wipers or burnt-out headlights. Such issues should be repaired quickly to guarantee safety, but don't require a visit to a garage.
Yes. Not every type of auto repair work needs to be done by a certified mechanic. You can fix some of a vehicle's issues just by paying attention to how the automobile is running and having a basic understanding of auto repair. Look over the ways weather may impact your car and what preventative measures you can take to avoid having to take it into the shop.
