FCC Collision Centers - Sunnyvale
I was sandwiched between two cars in a parking lot and had damage to both the front and back of my brand new vehicle. Being relatively new to the area, I was unsure of what body shop to go to but was recommended by Hopkins Honda to go to FCC Collision Center in Sunnyvale. I could not have imagined how effortless, quick, and high quality the service was. From the moment I walked in the door their staff was friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. Danny Chao was the estimator who oversaw my repair work and was so thorough and honest about each step of the process and made sure that I was kept up to date as my repair progressed. He took care of all the coordination with my insurance company, and had my car completely fixed within a week since I was running on a tight timeline. What's more, my car was returned to me polished and immaculately clean, over and above my expectations. Though I hope never to be in an accident again, if I do I will most definitely return to FCC Collision Center in Sunnyvale. What makes this company so unique is its family feel which you can sense in the warmness of the place and people. Thank you FCC!

Ace Tire
Excellent service, quality work and reasonable prices, all-inclusive, make Ace Tire my go-to spot for all my tire needs.My mechanic recommended Ace Tire when I needed to replace my well-worn tires. It was a great recommendation, as I came in on a Wednesday and was quickly greeted and helped. I had called ahead to make sure they had the space and the right tires around, but seemed like it isn't really a problem, as no appointment was needed.The gentleman who helped me out was fantastic, I wish I remembered his name. They offered a range of tire options, from economy to the top brands (I chose top). They even corrected an error in the tire type and I hit the curb with my front end much less often. They also include the alignmentGo, go to Ace Tire Sunnyvale for any and all tire needs Read less

Diagnostics Unlimited
I have a 1990 Jaguar xj6 and my car was still running rough after I changed oil, filter, spark plug wires in santa clara. I was told it needed more work and I did not feel like spending any more. I searched Groupon and ran into Diagnostics Unlimited. I took my car for a diagnosis second opinion, had to wait a bit, as the place was full of cars. They did the eval and it turned out that the injectors were literally taped by the previous place. They repaired the seals and asked me to get warranty on the wires as they were shorting out. I took it back and got the new wires. That resolved the issues on my car. I generally hate the bill on the European cars but I was happy to find a decent repair place after all. It was worth the drive from San Jose!

We were referred to FCC and they were awesome. They went over everything. There was clear communication throughout the whole experience. They left the car spotless which was a great touch. We picked up the car and it didn't start. Probably due to it sitting for the couple of weeks they worked on it. Within seconds someone came out and jump started it so we could be on our way. Again, they assured us if we had any problems to come back. So far everything is running excellent and no problems. I am very happy with our service. We will be back if we need anything in the future. Hopefully not but in case we do.

FCC & Danny has done it again my Nissan Armada was in another collision Dec. 24th. I had such a hard time with the other parties insurance but FCC & Danny was there for me once again and made my nightmare go away. Stress and worry free with all the costly repairs needed to get done. Danny worked very hard to get that insurance company to pay for all the damages caused. I am amazed with the wonderful work FCC does it feels and looks it's like it never happened. Knock on wood I don't have another collision in the future I know I can always depend on FCC for the repairs.

My Volkswagen Jetta broke down on freeway, got towed over to Auto-plaza around 6pm. Nearly all shops here had closed and I was gonna be stuck i thought. I saw Diagnostics Unlimited as they were winding down. Meeting the guys who work here was truly the height of customer service I felt. They went out of their way to diagnose. Even gave me a loaner car. Next day I got a call from Boby that there was nothing wrong with my car and the battery had not enough charge. They charged it overnight and did not charge me a single cent. It was a fab experience all the way.

From the time we walked thru the doors at FCC collision center we were greeted by a very professional and courteous staff. Our quote was given, right on the spot. Our FCC contact persons, got our quote done immediately which was comparable to the other quotes we had on our Lexus, except, FCC has a lifetime guarantee on the parts and labor. They also walked us thru what to expect in a time frame. The repair work was impeccable, the paint was flawlessly feathered, and the car was spotless. We could not have asked for better service, all the way around.

Everything was fine with my experience at FCC Collision Centers. The girl at the front desk was very nice and helpful. I thought that the service overall was very good. Everyone was very professional and friendly. Unfortunately, when I did go to pick up my car, the technician had forgotten to replace a piece of the car on the bumper. They had to keep my car for another day to fix it. They offered to pay for the gas for my rental since I had to keep it another day. They did fix it and everything turned out really good. I would use them again.

"My car had the driver side mirror vandalized when I brought the car here, after researching/calling a lot of other servicing/repair shop. I cannot even begin to describe how respectful and courteous The person I talked too and the rest of the team was. It took a couple of days to order the parts and had to leave my car in their workshop for half a day but these guys kept me posted of the status through messages and even provided complimentary pick-up/drop off and car wash.I would highly recommend them for body repair/servicing."

I returned back after oil change to get the brakes and front struts on my 2009 Benz S550 with dealer parts at 1/2 the labor time. Their promo on struts was $99 each - absolutely amazing deal. The shop gave me good service on wheel alignment which typically I use to pay $129 elsewhere but at diagnostics they charged $79 -surprisingly a great deal. I loved their repair rates for my car and found Bobi their manager to go out of his way to check my car thoroughly. I appreciated the service and have no hesitation in recommending them.
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.
