Customer service is definitely a value.

by - Verified Customer December 27, 2016

I went in for a inspection they told me 15 minutes. I had a 9:30 appointment I didn't leave until 12:00. I was told truck would be ready early next morning it wasn't. I told them the previous day I had an 11:00 appointment and I was not picked up until 11:40 to get my truck. I feel I need to take my truck back in since my brakes don't feel any better or stop any better than before.

Lauren has a smile on her face the whole time and the guys are super polite and went above and beyond to show and explain to me the issues with my car. They did some tests on it and talked me through the diagnosis. They are amazing!

They go by strict book time, one item on repair was to replace a fuel filter on a 2004 ford truck. $5.00 for the part 1 hour book time & @ $100. I'm sure it took less than 15 minutes. So including tax it was $115 to install it. I'll never use this shop again. Then they told me they had rotated my tires and asked me if that was OK they did that. It was not something I requested and they charge me $35 for that. Also I was charged 5 hours book time and I picked my truck 3 hours later .Ridiculous

I got ripped off

Reply from Haven Auto Repair – by Haven9285 August 11, 2016

Mr. Cheema,
We have not done any repair nor service on your 2007 Acura RDX. We ran tests and shared with you the malfunction codes from your vehicle's own computer. As far as purchasing the catalytic converter on Ebay, they are very cheap. Please make sure they are legal in state of California. I understand your concern about our price. You mentioned that you own a couple 7-Eleven stores. It would not be fair to you if someone questioned why 2-liter sodas in your store are very expensive when they are much cheaper at the 99 Cent Stores. Mr. Cheema, you have your customers, they have theirs. A 99 Cent Store customer has every right to go buy his soda from where were he wishes (as you got your parts from ebay )but he has no right to come to your business and claim "I GOT RIPPED OFF."
God Bless,
Mehrdad Avar

Dropped my car off for an oil change. Received a call suggesting brakes were needed (seemed reasonable based off mileage since last brakes). We able to fix everything same day.

by - Verified Customer July 05, 2016

All of the personnel were very friendly and helpful. The repair was completed in a timely manner, and it was professionally completed.

by - Verified Customer June 30, 2016

Merhdad an extremely kind & helpful, kept me informed about status of car repair every step of the way. A pleasant surprise a very nice loaner car made available to me while car repairs underway. Front desk assistant Lauren also an above average assistant. She spoke with utmost professionalism, always returned my calls within same day. Even mechanics kind, informative, and professional. Shop in lobby & work area cleaner than some doctor offices I've been to. Very fair pricing for quality work this shop has to offer. My sister's boyfriend came to shop with me - a very particular car buff for many years - told me if he ever needs car work done - he will definitely bring his vehicles to this shop. Extremely very very satisfied with my experience at Haven Auto Repair. :) :)

This shop is not like any other. The waiting area is comfortable and inviting as if you were sitting in a friend's living room. They offer cookies and coffee while you wait and interact with you! I took advantage of the in-house financing when it came to paying my bill. My car rides much nicer now and I have peace of mind that my kids are safe when we drive. I will definitely be loyal to Haven Auto Repair!

Although I do like their treatment of their customers, I did not like what happened my last visit; I asked for an estimate on some services, I believe the owner told me the time of the labor was 2.18hrs I replied 2.81 (which is reversing the 1 and the 8) he remained silent and let me just say 2.81 when he just told me a different figure.

The last time I went to haven auto repair I was charged a lot of money for a minor repair which I had it done at a different place way cheaper. Also the part that needed to be repaired that I was told from a mechanic at Haven Auto, was not the problem in my car as I was told. Another mechanic from different shop was able to fix my car and found the right problem

by - Verified Customer February 13, 2014

They said they were "really sure" that the repair they recommended would fix the issue that I brought my car in for.I paid over 250.00 and It did not. I went home and researched the internet and fixed it myself for 43.00.

Haven Auto Repair charged me $200 to diagnose a problem with my Toyota truck. I told them that for the same diagnoses, Crown Toyota (a Toyota dealership) would charge half the price for the same diagnosis. I asked them if they could at least match the dealership's price and was told no so Haven Auto Repair lost my business of doing the needed repair job. If they would have matched the dealerships price, I would have definitely given them the business. In my opinion, a mom and pop shop should never go up against the big boys (dealerships) charging equal or more. They should always undercut the dealership's price. If not, what would be the point in given the business? At a dealership, you know you're getting all genuine Toyota parts, mechanics that work on nothing but Toyotas everyday, all day + they have the big bucks in case something goes wrong. How arrogant of Haven Auto Repair.
