Funk Bros. - efficient, reliable and best of all...honest! Thank you, Peter, Hovig and all!
Dropped in to fix a flat tire, but will be back for future maintenance and repair. Thanks
Very satisfied with the service.
Great work as always! Thanks Funk Bros
Great shop. Quick and to the point. Would definitely come back.
Good place. Little pricey but get things done asap. Use again.
Funk Bros is great! My car was repaired quickly and for a great price.
Very good experience. Will come back.
As always, these guys are the absolute nicest and best in the business.
Always a stress free experience at Funk Bros.
Good professional diagnosis and work.
The only thing I was disappointed by, but I did not realize this until I got home from the shop, is that my driver side seat upholstery had ripped (I'm assuming from being sat in while repairing my horn) and there were a set of chips near where my driver side mirror was installed. Unfortunately, I now ideally would get these repaired as they're impacting the look of my vehicle.
Very friendly customer service. The car took longer than expected to fix but not unreasonably so. While I've had some issues with the car since that were a surprise, none stemmed from the work done by Funk Brothers. I am happy with the experience I had with them!
I don't know much about cars but it seems like they do a good job. It was very frustrating that the new water pump ended up causing my radiator to crack open a couple days later, but it was just because of a bunch of unknown buildup in the coolant system that a functional water pump could send into the radiator... so I get it, I guess. Still really frustrating. But Joe is at least very helpful and straightforward.
Love this shop and ESPECIALLY love Hovig. I recommend this place to anyone who will listen to me!!
Very nice experience price was less than expected. They squeezed me into the schedule and got me completed when they said they would.
I've been a customer for over a decade.
Great Shop, will bring car back again and recommend to friends and family.
The team was very helpful and gave me advice on things that I can repair and should in the future to prevent extended damage. I highly value the knowledge and service I received especially since it was my first visit.
Great customer care. Went there because a friend recommended and now I know why. I'll be back again if I need to have my car fixed.
Very nice people.
Great service and price on my brakes, which is what I came in for. Could not find my small oil leak, which was a little disappointing.
Really great and communicative. Final bill was less than they quoted me which was great!
Great guys! They were quick, efficient, responsive, and lovely to work with.
Love Funk Bros!
I'm so happy I found this shop. Customer service really is remarkable and they do a great job repairing my car!
I have lived in LA all of my life and never have I felt more comfortable in an auto repair shop. The employees are all great! I actually thought I was going to have to buy a new car, but my car is now running perfectly. This will permanently be my go-to place for all things auto-related and I won't hesitate to recommend this place to anyone who needs help with their car.
My go to shop for my 76 Celica!
The only issue was that I was never called when the car was ready like I was told was going to happen. So I spent most of the day waiting for a call. Both times I brought it in, I had to call back and was told the car had been ready for hours. Outside of that, the service was fantastic and Joe was awesome!
Great service and happy with the results. Only negative comment is that there wasn't a whole lot of communication on their end. I had to call the following day to get an update on my car. Would have appreciated Funk Brothers taking the initiative. But all in all a good experience. Will definitely go back.
Although my car is now having similar noises, I called and asked if I could get it looked at again. They said to bring it in any time. Always friendly and super quick turn around time. Plus, I don't think the sound coming again is a problem with their fixing. I think it is my car.
They are competent and trustworthy.
I've been to this shop a few times now and they always treat me with respect. I don't believe they pressure me into getting additional services done.
I trust their work.
I had a lot of work done on my car. It was necessary. The car runs great now.
I've been a Funk Bros customer for over 10 years, and they're the best in town. Fair, fast and no-nonsense.
Always really nice here. My 66 mustang was running sluggish compared to normal and brought in to check a few things. They probably could have told me anything and I would have paid for it (not knowing that much about cars) but they only adjusted my timing slightly and it's been running better than I have felt in awhile. My visit hardly cost me anything. These guys are the best.
Quick and easy repair. My shop of choice from now on.
Service with a smile--just the way it should be.
Very prompt service. Professional and polite.
Top notch operation.
Joe communicated very well.
One of the best in LA. Honest and fair.
Very friendly, prompt and knowledgeable. Would highly recommend to anyone.
Always appreciate the service here!
Got the job done quickly and they were respectful.
Brought my 2010 Ford Fusion Sport for brake pad replacement. 2 days after the repair, the main bolt attaching my brake calipers fell out on the freeway disabling the front passenger side brake entirely. While the customer service was great, the work incomplete.
Great team and very professional!
They were quick and got the job.
I liked them.
Good customer service. Quick service and reasonable price.
They were very prompt and courteous. They kept in touch every step of the way with status of my vehicle. They didn't try to hide anything. It was a great experience. I will definitely use them again.
Funk Brothers completely satisfied me as an auto repair shop. They performed the work I asked for and did not charge above their estimated price. The work was done on time and they kept me informed as to the progress.
It was fast and easy.
Had a hose break in my Jeep and had it towed to Funk Brothers. They were extremely helpful and professional and had great pricing. Will definitely be a repeat customer.
Easy, knowledgeable, fast.
Repaired on time for less than the initial quote.
Amazing service and honest people.
Took my car right away. Called me on my lunch break with the diagnosis and I was able to pick it up that same day.
We had a miscommunication on the price and job, but they made it right.
They were friendly and took care of my car quickly.
The service was done in a timely manner. Great customer service!
Quick, friendly service at a good price.
Great service, honest and straight forward.
High level of customer service by the front staff. Mechanics provide a high level of service and go the extra mile to get the job done right.
Very thoughtful, timely and accurate communication.
It was great
Amazing honest service, very happy
Funk Bros has been great every time I come to them with my Ford Ranger. They're fast and honest and they always explain exactly what the problem is and how they fixed it. I had ongoing issues with the battery and alternator and took my truck to a few places including the service department at a Ford Dealership, and neither was able to fix the issue, much less explain what was wrong in the first place. They just told me to replace the alternator, or replace the battery, which worked for a while. I kept having problems though, until I went to Funk Bros where they discovered that the voltage and/or amperage of the alternator was not compatible with the battery that I had so the system was burning itself out. I highly recommend Funk Bros.
They seem to be getting much busier and sloppier at the work. In the 8 years of going to them, they are now seeming to be more forgetful and the work has been more questionable. Before I trusted them 100%, now maybe 85%.
Excellent work & very professional
Great guys, totally professional, very informative, incredibly kind.
I was greeted right away and explained what my car needed. I was never up-sold on services I did not need and was in and out within hours
These guys seem genuine and honest, which is important in finding a good shop. I've been here 4 or 5 times in the last couple years and they've always been fast and affordable.
I brought my flat tire in thinking it would be $300-$500 to replace it, only to return to it later that day patched up free of charge. Nicest guys around.
Fast and nice!
Super nice, accommodating and thorough
Went for an alignment. It was quick on point and they gave told me exactly what was wrong.
I received friendly, affordable, and quality service- and quickly!
Everyone at the shop is understanding, kind, and calm. I've been able to drop my car off early before work and then pick it up at my convenience later in the day. Joe is willing to answer all the questions I have, and they have reasonable rates and don't try and trick you into spending more. I really appreciate their service!
Great kindness and empathy at service desk
Summary: I was told by AAA roadside assistance that my Alternator was probably damaged and needed replacement, I took the car to Funk Brothers on a Sunday 2 hours before the shop was closing, I was seen right away and my car was analyzed and tested. Funk brothers told me that my Alternator and the car was fine, it was a battery issue. They only charged me a $25 dollar diagnostic fee, which I thought was too little to be honest. They spent time and energy on my car and determined it was just a battery issue, since my battery was sold to me by AAA roadside service, it was still under warranty, I was recommended to call them and have AAA replace the battery at no charge! This type of honesty does not exist very often in the automotive repair world. I WILL certainly be a repeat customer of Funk Brothers!
Courteous,Trustworthy, Affordable, A+ rating.
Quick Oil change. Gave me an estimation for completion and was on time. very helpful and good prices.
Great, easy, fast!
Great service, done quickly and very fairly priced.
Great service, fast and friendly
Fast, knowledgeable and made me feel comfortable. Trustworthy and understand the upkeep of an older vehicle can be costly. They are very good at diagnosing the problem and helping you to decide what's the most important item to fix first. I will definitely refer them !
Straight forward and done timely.
Customer service as far as the mechanic was kind of terrible but managerial wise was good
Thank you for your comments. Can you please elaborate on the specific of your concerns. We take our customers opinions very seriously and would appreciate your feedback.
Everything was fine. My only wish is that we could figure out why the overhead light stops working after a while. It's the light that is supposed to go on when I open the car door. It works for a while and then it stops working again.
I've found Funk Bros a good option for me as they are close to where I live and are professional in their conduct.
I do however have a major concern. They have performed last three services on my F150, with which they tell me that they give the vehicle a check-over for problems and top up all fluids.
Two days after my recent oil change my truck overheated on the way to Bakersfield which has never happened before, my truck is renowned for always running cool.
Upon pulling over to let it cool and top up coolant, the radiator appeared to be full of Water (instead of coolant) as it boiled over, which was confirmed by another mechanic when I went for a radiator flush a couple of days later.
I know for a fact that my radiator has never had water in it since having it replaced a couple of years ago and Funk Bros are the only people to have worked on my truck for the last 3-4 oil changes which leads me to believe they have been topping up my radiator with water instead of coolant, which almost (and may have) caused serious engine damage.
Upon my first visit I discussed with Hovig that my truck is high mileage and I want a mechanic who can keep an eye out for any potential issues so I may address them to keep the truck in good health which I was assured would be the case, so this is very disappointing.
I am sorry you had a overheating issue. We searched our database for a customer named John with an Ford f-150 but could not find a customer so I could not reach out to you to help.
Let me start by saying that I can assure you we would recommend a repair if your car needed it, however to do so it must be present during the time we had possession.
As much as we try to be proactive and "predict" the future needs of a car, we cannot recommend repairs if they are not needed or present at the time of inspection. We refuse to take risks with your money. Saying that, I cannot see how your car had a radiator replaced as you stated a couple of years ago and it had only water in it. Antifreeze last much longer then that. The assumption that you only had water in it because of us would only be true if someone drained the coolant from you car and replaced it with water or your car had a leak and was only being topped off with water. If this was the case your car would overheat. I would recommend you reach out to us instead and we will of coarse help. We would prefer not take another competitors word.
We do appreciate you trusting us with your car and I hope this helps.
Friendly and helpful staff
Great as always
I have been using Funk Brothers for the last 10 years. They are honest, fair and competitively priced. I could not be happier.
everyone is very helpful and professional
Everyone was incredibly friendly and did an excellent job! I would definitely come back and recommend the Funk Brothers to others.
Quick and complete service, completely fair pricing with no unnecessary charges.
Perfect as always
Very quick service. Wonderful customer service. Explained all the work that was being done and was transparent about what the cost would be ahead of time.
Great service. Joe went out of his way to help with my 1956 modified Porsche
Everyone I've interacted with has been kind, accommodating, and straightforward. As a young woman I worry about being taken advantage of by an industry I know very little about, I have always been at ease with their assessments and billing. They have taken the time to explain to me what needs to be done now and what can wait (and the timeline I should get specific things taken care of). I will continue to use them as long as they keep this up!
Great service. Honest service. They do not rip you off. I have taken three vehicles there and it has always been a good experience.
I brought my car in and they told me something differently. Charged me for that. Then it broke down and what I originally thought was wrong turned out to be correct.
Hope your well. I have looked over your response and needed some clarification as i'm not sure which visit you are referring to as you have been to us about 3 times. Out of all the reviews from Repairpal you are the only 1 star and we strive for perfection so I would love to discuss your concerns in detail. Please return my call so can make things right for you.

The manager was really kind and quick in repairing my car. He went far beyond in helping me with my repair.
Their customer service is friendly and they do good work. I remember I took my car in for repair, they called me and basically informed me of a repair service, I didn't need. Very honest to put it short. That's it. Just great service and very cheap.
They were very good and not expensive.
They have done the work I wanted them to do, they save me money when they can and I trust them explicitly.
I feel they are honest, do quality work, rare in you having a trusted mechanic and always treated me well.
They are the most trustworthy mechanics I have been to in twenty-six years.
They were great, super helpful, not too expensive, timely fashion. They were good, that's it.
The service was good and they are efficient.
I wanted a smog test done so they gave me a quote and they lived up to it.
They did a good job, prompt, it was fast.
I have been with them for several years. They are extremely trustworthy.
I think my car is defective and needs to go back into the shop.
Good service. Good price. Quick service.
They are very friendly. Reasonably priced.
They are the only ones out of 20 mechanics that I visited after 2 months of searching, they are just a great company.
They did the work fast and at the price they quoted me.
