Message from the Shop

Dennis Nakamura opened Pearl City Auto Works in 1987. As the Head Mechanic at Ron's Performance Center, he was well known for his skill at fixing any problem – even when no one else could figure it out. He became a big name in Hawaii on the racetrack, and loved to build fast cars. He created Pearl City Auto Works to take all of that accumulated skill and use it to help people stay on the road and keep their families safe.

Soon after the shop opened, customers could spy little Erin as an 8th grader hanging around the shop on weekends. She continued to work weekends through school, and began working full time at the shop immediately after high school. After 15 years of learning new things with cars every day, Erin knew that working at Pearl City Auto Works was what she wanted to do forever. In 2005, she purchased the business and has since promised to carry on her dad's legacy of excellent workmanship, care for the customer, and love of fast cars!

Great service and great people!

by - Verified Customer October 04, 2016

Great service. I only wanted 1 bolt extracted since I broke the head off and was worried about the price to have the other 3 replaced. In return they replaced all of them and didn't charge anything extra. Thanks!

by - Verified Customer October 03, 2016

Great customer service over the phone and in-person. Staff very knowledgeable; understood my needs and provided detailed information on the work needed to be done on my vehicle. Pricing very reasonable. Received follow-up phone calls on additional work needed.

Great service!

I recently had major work done on my vehicle within the past month. Their workmanship, professionalism, and ability to find and notify me of existing problems, with my car, was great! They even had a great running loaner available, at no additional cost, while auto repairs were being done. This is rare in Honolulu, and since I live far away from the repair shop, made it a lot easier to get around (without having to rent a car for a few days). In short, my experience with them was nothing short of awesome! I will definitely recommend them to friends who are in need of a good quality auto repair shop. My vehicle runs like new, and I could not be happier!

They fixed the rear driver side window fine, but the next day I noticed that the lock no longer works properly . I have been told it will cost another 200.00-400.00 to replace it.

If any repair work needed to be done it was done with expertise. Also if any additional work needed to be done I would receive a call saying that I should do the repair before a major problem occurs. I have total confidence in all repairs that have been done to my vehicles. My wife and I have total trust with Pearl City Auto.

Last repair was very overpriced.

Great, friendly service! They accommodate my schedule--my car is always ready before my requested time of pickup. Once they even stayed open beyond their regular hours on a Saturday so that I could have a tow truck bring my car in during an unexpected emergency. Their workmanship is excellent!

4 or 5 years ago, I had an idle problem on my car and took it to Midas to check and they recommend to replace the idle and it will cost me at least $900. so I search and ask some friends any good car repair shop and they mention Pearl City Auto Repair so I brought my car and Erin (the owner) told me that it just need cleaning and it only cost me less than $100. and until now my idle is still working. They're honest and friendly, they don't take advantage of females who doesn't know anything about cars.
