I arrived in Los Angeles a few days prior to taking my 2009 Land rover Range Rover in for an oil service. Close to 3k miles driven from MD to CA and I was rather thankful to find a place of business that could provide the service required on my vehicle. The Customer service representatives were pleasant and professional. Within a very reasonable time period my vehicle was ready to go! I'll go back!!!

Going through the loss of a parent is not easy. Having to continue without skipping a beat in daily life while going through the process was made easier in the moments shared during communications about repairs of our vehicle and times we could come and pick the vehicle up. Thank you all for being kind to us. Sometimes kindness is all that is needed. Even during something like having your car repaired.

The shop seemed like a club amongst the employees but me the customer was an outsider. They Originally gave a high rate for basic procedure I was lucky to find a coupon online while waiting for my service. Business does not feel as honest as other shops with their high prices.

Everything was fine

by - Verified Customer October 08, 2017

It was fine, but I didn't like being told one estimated time for a repair (with appointment) and then a second much longer time (3x as long) when I actually got to the appointment. By the same person. That made it really difficult to schedule my work which is what I need to do to earn money for your high repair rates. . I would have used my small local guy but his service bays were being repaired after some flooding damage. The customer service manager was reasonably polite, but had a somewhat condescending and officious attitude. I didn't care for it, but it wasn't anything outrageous and I could live with it. I also don't like being charged for more hours of labor than was actually expended. Having said all that, the repairs got done and the car seems to be working, for which I am thankful. And I was able to get in a reasonably quick manner and start the repair process, another thing for which I am thankful, Those are the important things. So all in all, not a bad experience. Thanks

I have always been pleased with the quality of work, however this time I thought the price was a bit over the top and unfair. I came in with two Honda keys that needed battery replacements. I get that you would have to charge me a labor fee, but to have to charge $15 for each key that took an entire 4 minutes to change is really unfair. If you had changed me a one time labor for both keys I would have found it to be reasonable, but for both was totally uncool. Since I needed the keys right away I had no choice but to pay for this.

The cost of my service in my opinion was overpriced. When you can look in the penny saver and see the price offered, that should be the price charged. As a repeat customer having to ask for the preferred cost should not be necessary. I always feel like I am being ripped off after any service at this repair shop.

In this case the repair shop could not find the cause of the problem..it was at this time they called the dealer when they are in trouble. I don't know if they have the right test equipment. This was the first time they have left a job incomplete. Wiring was left exposed,panels we not put back in place, screws were stripped and calls were missed. If this was my first time going to this shop I would not go back, but heretofore they have given great service. I guess everyone has a bad day. They did perform a smog test I didn't authorize but it was an attempt to repair the problem. They couldn't turn off a "check engine" light....which I did after returning home with the vehicle by disconnecting the negative terminal, this allowing the system to re-set itself....the orginal problem thaI I needed to have the vehicle pass the smog test....which it did.

ACA Automotive helped me in a very personal way. Having owned an Isuzu Trooper since it was purchased new in 1993, they marketed themselves as specialists for repair of this vehicle. Since they no longer manufacture Troopers, I was very thankful that they had this knowledge. Coming off another shop's failure to resolve problems I was having with the Trooper, ACA was very welcoming, engaging and honest about what was truly needed to correct the problem I had, and they certainly delivered in resolution, as well as built up my confidence that they can deliver as charged. I will now continue to use them for all of my vehicles - as they are honest, reliable and trustworthy. I highly recommend them.

I was quoted $1400 on my repairs to my vehicle after the $80 charge to inspect the vehicle. I felt the price was too high and was going to get a second opinion and the service desk said they were going to shop around for cheaper prices. I do not understand why they couldnt have shopped around for the cheapest prices to begin with but only dropped the price to $1300. My co-worker advised me to a mechanic of his and thg job was completed for $500. The vehicle is running perfect. I had been going to ACA for 3-4 years prior and will not return because of this instance. Who knows how many other times they have overcharged me.

Was told I needed a new battery according to a test/diognostic which I was charged $70 plus the fee for the New battery, including labor. 2 days later my car wouldn't start, so I took my car back to ACA and was told it was actually the Starter. What is the point of a test/diaognostic if it fails to find the real issue. So not only was I charged for a test that failed, a battery that I didn't need but received a lack of follow through from ACA to let me know that the car was ready and I had to call them to see if my car was ready and then expected to pick-up my car when they offer a shuttle service only to find out that this service is not available after 5pm. Let me add by saying 5pm was the time I was promised my car and that I would be receiving a phone call from ACA that my vehicle was ready. They did refund me half of the $70 diaognostic fee but better Service to the customer would have been to not charge at all for a test that does not work.

by - Verified Customer August 03, 2012

I have been pleased in the past but this specific visit seemed like I ended up paying for them to check a bunch of stuff, not even fix it, and then it took way longer than expected when I needed my car the next day, so they weren't able to do any of the service I needed after all. I was pretty bummed. They don't apply the diagnostic costs towards repairs which seems like most other places do nowadays...

I have been going to this shop for quite a few years and they are always very thorough with my repairs and if they suggest something needs to be done to my car I trust that it does. This is very important for me. I don't mind paying the money if I know the car needs the service they suggest.

Wasnt thrilled that they put a customer discount card onto my car keychain. The metal ring was not meant to have something squeezed onto it and it stretched out my keyring. The next day my car remote got separated from the key and temporarily lost while running an errand. I went back to the store/parking lot to search and later found the remote but not without panic that I would need to purchase a new remote which is not inexpensive.

I was quoted a repair which would have been unnecessary and overly costly. I chose to take my vehicle to another company and the diagnosis was completely different and the cost was more than 1/2 the quoted cost from ACA. I have recently heard of other related situations from acquaintances I have spoke to.

I recommend ACA to anyone who needs a repair shop for their car. Their customer service is second to none, their work is great and I trust their recommendations. I have never felt pressured to have work done. In fact, when I have asked them if I need other work done, they usually patiently explain to me why I should or shouldn't have it done. And they usually say I don't need it done. What mechanic does that??!! You can probably find a place that's cheaper but I think it's worth paying a little more for a repair shop I trust and like.

Questions Answered by ACA Automotive
You would need to remove the dash covers and instrument cluster. You should be able to access the bulb from behind instrument cluster (a cover or two may have to be removed from the rear of the cluster to gain access to the circuit board).
The brakes are very soft. Have to push do...
I would start by attempting to bleed the brake system again. Seems as though there may be air stuck in the system. If no air is found when bleeding, there may be a leak and or the brake master cylinder may be bypassing.
There are many reasons that dash lights will not illuminate. It could be the fuse, switch or bulbs. I would recommend to diagnose the dash lights circuit to advise further. The reason that you cannot pass a smog inspection in CA due to no dash lights illuminating is because the state requires that we confirm the check engine light or MIL light properly illuminates to advise the driver there is an emissions related component that is not working properly.
No oil by valve cover
The oil may be a result of a few different scenarios. PCV restriction, engine blow by and/or intake manifold gasket/housing. The best way to go about finding out is to have an technician perform a diagnostic on the vehicle to determine the best repair. We are AAA approved and all technicians are ASE certified to provide you an estimate for repair. Just let us know if you would like to come in for the diagnostic inspection.
