Customer Reviews

Verified CustomerJanuary 11, 2014

The service is quick and everybody is right on schedule and very accommodating. I wasn't able to pick up my car until after they closed, and they allowed me to, so that was very nice of them. I don't know about the price because I'm not very knowledgeable about price or anything like that.

Nader is the mechanic there. They big thing about him is that he's honest and I know that the work he diagnoses is the work that needs to be done. They call the cab for me to go back home. I drop my car off and pick it up in the evening and it's good overall.

Verified CustomerJanuary 10, 2014

They have good service and explained everything clearly, everything that was going on with my car. They were very patient with me, which I appreciated and were very courteous.

Verified CustomerJanuary 08, 2014

They will come and pick you up, they take care of the car, they fix my car for me, and get it to me on time. I didn't have to wait a long long time. They give me a discount and they did fix my car. I can depend me on them. That's why I try to keep them. I have old cars, they still have them.

Verified CustomerJanuary 07, 2014

They were nice and friendly and easy.

Verified CustomerJanuary 07, 2014

He told me he finished faster than he said he was going to because he was really busy. He was supposed to get back to me in 2 days and he got back to me the same day. He actually ordered the wrong part but didn't charge me for it. That just made me feel really good about it. He's just very trustworthy. I feel like customer service wise, a couple of guys are really friendly, a couple of them weren't as friendly but I'm sure they're really good workers. I just looked online as far as price and they had the best and a 10% discount.

Verified CustomerDecember 27, 2013

Good service. Reasonable price. That's good.

Verified CustomerDecember 26, 2013

Everything was taken care of quickly. I didn't have any issues. The price was reasonable. I only went with them one time.

Verified CustomerDecember 20, 2013

The person who runs it is very nice. It was a pretty quick turn around. It was a on the more expensive side, but that's the only thing I'd have to knock down on.

Verified CustomerDecember 17, 2013

They did the work, it was a reasonable price, and it was done in the time they said it would be in. I don't think I liked the way they had their office set up, it was just kind of awkward. Other than that I had no complaints.

They were very prompt. My car literally got stranded in the middle of the highway. They took care of it almost immediately. The guy that I dealt with, I think his name is Nader, he took the time to explain to me what was wrong and how he prepared the whole thing and that was pretty good. I thought they were reasonable enough.

Verified CustomerDecember 07, 2013

I had just a really really good experience with them because they were super honest. They gave me an estimate, it was a big number, and they gave me time to think about it. I told them to go ahead with it. They looked into it and they pulled some strings to repair in a way to make it cheaper and made it less then the estimate. Since then I've been in for other sort of checkups and they let me know honestly if something needs repaired or not to worry about it. Nader I believe is the name of the guy helped me, is great. He's super helpful and always answers my questions. Honestly one of the most trustworthy repair places I've been to in LA.

Verified CustomerDecember 06, 2013

It's a little bit expensive.

Verified CustomerDecember 06, 2013

The repair was possibly done incorrectly and the guy who rang me up tried to charge me more than the actual amount.

Verified CustomerNovember 27, 2013

They did the work I asked them to do, they did the work quickly, and I did the research for the price.

They're very friendly, very nice, and they gave me a discount.

Verified CustomerNovember 18, 2013

They were great, they helped me out immediately, and the service was great.

November 08, 2013

Just a very painless experience, everyone I worked with was very polite, and the estimate was given for the work and was done quickly. Just that everyone was polite, the work was done quickly, the work was reasonably priced for what I had done.

Verified CustomerNovember 06, 2013

They had good service, and were friendly. More about proximity and they're close to where I live. I mean that they were kind of quick to diagnose my car, and I don't feel that I was overcharged for the service.

Verified CustomerNovember 06, 2013

They're open really late, my car was towed to them after 7pm and they had it ready within two days. They had it done quickly, but they're really hard to find, it's tough to find them. I spent like ten minutes driving around to find them, not really good signage.

They did the right job, did it in one day.

Verified CustomerOctober 22, 2013

It seemed like they did a good job, they hardly did anything, but what they did do was good.

This shop is AWESOME! Steve and Angel are the best. Having a son in Cali and me in Iowa trying to find an honest repair shop to repair his vehicle has been a nightmare. I had been taken advantage of with a negligent tranny repair recently. I contacted LA Auto and visited with Steve. He communicated great and very promptly regarding the repair. The car was repaired within the time and price I was quoted. The car works great. We have since been to the shop for other repairs and this shop is so accommodating and helpful. They are quick and do things right. I can't say enough good about this shop. I know my son can take his car here and I don't have to worry about him being taken advantage of. THIS SHOP ROCKS!
