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.

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.

by August 20, 2016

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%.

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.

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!

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.

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.

Reply from Funk Brothers Automotive – by funkbrothers August 26, 2016

Hi John,

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.

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!

by - Verified Customer January 24, 2014

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.

Hi Eddie,

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.
