Independent Volvo Saab Jeep & Subaru
Short story - horrible mechanical services.Car is 80s Volvo 240, fairly easy to work on rather than any modern car, Google it.Prior the repairs: Car has leaks from Engine (drain plug, rear main seal), Transmission (rear seal, transmission pan gasket, etc).* Shop timeline1) In the shop: 03/22/2017 - 03/31/2017Car has small residue of oil underneath and making a grinding sound in 2 gear of transmission. Later, the car purged a lot of oil while was driving and in the community where was parked over night. The reason is that the shop overfilled the ATF in transmission by about 1.5 quart. Thus, possibly there is damage to the transmission. The oil was spilled in the engine compartment and the engine oil pressure sensor connector was broken. The owner fixed the connector. Transmission was painted in blue color without notifying the me.2) In the shop: 04/03/2017 - 04/04/2017The car is still leaking ATF around transmission. The transmission fluid is overfilled again. Determined that the car need to be driven 15-20 minutes on the freeway in order to show that.3) In the shop: 04/11/2017 - 04/14/2017The car is still leaking ATF around transmission.4) In the shop: 04/19/2017 - 04/19/2017The car is still leaking ATF around transmission.5) In the shop: 04/25/2017 - 04/25/2017The car is still leaking ATF around transmission. Also, the rear of the car started making grinding noise.6) In the shop: 04/28/2017 - 04/28/2017The car seems to stop leaking until 06/10/2017, where I discover it started to leak again around rear of transmission.* Overall Damage:1) Overfill of the transmission by a lot 2) Broken engine oil pressure sensor connector - it was fixed by me.3) Purged transmission oil caused all the back of station wagon to be in oil - washed, I paid.4) Poorly painted transmission - not only the shop did not get any permission from the me to paint the transmission, but because it was non-professionally painted5) Broken engine mount bracket bolt - fixed by me

Shift Auto & Tires
Had a great experience! I came in for oil change Patricio was Kind and helpful. He suggested a few things that needed to be replaced but reassured me that it could be done in a future date and that I was still safe to drive. That for me had me in awe. As a woman and not knowing much about cars made me feel comfortable knowing how honest he was. At the end of service he actually replaced what I needed at no cost. I highly recommend this place and I for sure be a loyal customer now����

Mira Mesa Auto Techs
Shady mechanic shop. I've only been here for oil and fluid changes. Good prices. However, today, I got a taste of some very shady practice:They informed me that both my radiator AND water pump are leaking, and gave me a price quote.I asked them "Where? Some seal? Something between them somewhere? Where is this leak?"This long haired young Asian dude in skinny jeans condescendingly asks:1.) Do you know where the radiator is? Do you know where the water pump is?2.) Did you know your radiator is plastic?!He claims that the radiator is leaking all over. Generically. Can't actually tell me how they detect the leak or where the leak is. 1.) I don't see any leaking or coolant loss at all from either the radiator or the pump2.) Actually the radiator resevoir is plastic. It's metal everywhere else. Besides, that doesn't actually explain anything about the leakage.The guy is condescending, has no idea what he's talking about, is a terrible communicator if he does know anything, and I just wanted to get out of there. I'm starting to think their recommendation is based on all the dried collant all over the engine. That came from a leak 6 months ago, and I took it to Lexus. They did a full diagnostic and preassure check on the entire coolant system, and it was determined to be the radiator cap. Replaced it and that fixed it. I'm thinking that these guys saw that and are using that to recommend an unneccessary replacement of the entire radiator and waterpump. I just spoke to my neighbor who also took his Audi to this shop a few months ago. He also has had the same experience with these people:1.) They claimed his water pump was leaking. He had just had it replaced and there was no leaks before or after their claim.2.) They quoted him $700 to replace his thermostat housing - he did it himself and it cost $40 in parts and 45 minutes of labor. Bad communication and dubious recommendations. I'm calling this place out as a shady auto shop.

SE Collision Center
I was very pleased to take my car to this place. They have great customer service which made easier go through all the paperwork you have to do when you have a car accident. The best part was see my car repaired and it looked brand new car.Also they repaired my car so fast while in other places it could take me more than 2 weeks. I recomend this place to repair a car if you have a car accident, they are very professional doing their job.

Pettey's Auto Service
My husband and I I have been taking our cars to Petteys Auto for over fifteen years. I don't write too many reviews, but feel I must write Andrew this review. Andrew is the owner and he and his lovely wife own and manage the auto shop. They do great work at a fare price. The truth is, if they charged more, I would pay it. I have never had a problem with the work they do not had to ever return for something they did poorly. This is an honest auto mechanic shop.

Bruce's Auto Service II
Bruce runs his business fraudulently. He always says that you need additional work. I Got an oil change that ended up costing me over a hundred dollars and was told my engine was leaking huge amounts of oil. He suggested that I pay money to investigate the engine but I decided to take it to another mechanic and was shown that the only reason I had a leak was because the oil pan screw was barely screwed in after the oil change. I'm very saddened by this news because I have been going here for years and wonder how many times I have been scammed by this guy. Buyer beware. If he try's to overcharge you for additional labor I would highly recommend getting a second opinion because it might save you hundreds of dollars.

Rich Phillips Auto Servic
There is one negative review on here. I'm not sure I believe it. I can't imagine Rich ever deceiving anyone just to make a nickle. I was in a bad situation, from out of town, using someone else' car while they were in the hospital. Rich helped me get the car up and going for as little as possible.
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.
