Ronnie & Andy have positive attitudes and are very informative on what was needed for my repairs!

by - Verified Customer March 30, 2017

The guy's at BVAC are top notch, always attentive to the customer needs, no pressure to oversell and great communication. I would recommend them to anyone seeking great automotive service. This review is coming from an ex-mechanic that doesn't enjoy working on my own cars any longer.

by - Verified Customer March 24, 2017

Went in for a smog check and was seen almost immediately and the work was completed earlier than they had estimated. Will be back for further service of my vehicle.

Respectful staff members.

by - Verified Customer March 16, 2017

I requested a brake inspection, and was informed that my vehicle needed new front rotors and pads. The repairs were completed by the time that I was quoted and I was given a complimentary ride from and back to the shop, which I greatly appreciated. I only wish that I was told which brand of pads and rotors were installed on my vehicle, and the average life of them as well.
