The staff was informative. The car was fixed on time and at a fair price. This will be my go-to place.

by - Verified Customer November 02, 2017

I'm very grateful to have a honest and competent auto shop in my neighborhood. Feeling blessed.

by - Verified Customer October 08, 2017

Its a business so they can charge what ever they want as far as labor rate but to tell customers a work thats suppose to take less than an hour and charge you for an hour is not fair.

Jimmy and his team are the best. Their genuine approach allows for trust when something needs repair. Jimmy prioritized on maintenance so to help my budget while still keeping me safe in my Jeep.

Second visit to the shop. I live in Az and was in Ca on vacation when i had car trouble. Found the shop and felt like everything they said was fair and resonable. They fixed what needes fixed and told us what could wait till we gor home to get done.Good work and fair price. That was the first time there. Second time, my wife was buying a car from a private seller in CA and we asked if he could take it to this shop to have it looked at before we bought it. They got him in fast and reported back to us quickly. No issues with car now wife has a new car. I would recomend this shop to anyo e in the area that needs repairs. Fair and honest.

FixCarNow West LA patched my flat tire.

by - Verified Customer September 05, 2017

Sent my car in for coolant level low. The shop checked the car and told me nothing was leaking, but recommended to do a system flush for $200. A week later coolant level was low again. This time they told me my water pump was leaking badly. I couldn't believe it went from nothing leaking to leaking badly in just one week, given the fact the car was indicating a coolant leak in the first place. They either didn't fix the problem the first time, or they were trying to over charge me. Also, the labor fee they quoted was way higher than the quote I got from other shops ($300 higher).

I had a terrific experience with FixCarNow. My car needed some body work done and brakes checked/repaired. Both were completed within a day and the price was far below what I've paid at dealerships or other shops for comparable work. I was able to get a ride to work, which really capped off a great experience (yes, even car repair experiences can be great when you're treated fairly and with respect...who knew!).

by - Verified Customer June 07, 2017

I am basically satisfied with the service. They fixed most of the problems with the car. The problem was there was a tire pressure message even after they changed the tire and it was not fixed until I brought it into the dealer to have the permaplate installed a few days later.

Work on my replicar was done and it was done in a timely fashion.

by - Verified Customer May 08, 2017

I have trusted FixCarNow for years and do recommend them regularly. In this particular case, it seems like the mechanic missed a couple of things. (It was an inspection of a car I was considering purchasing.) Fortunately the dealer is fixing those problems for free, since I did buy the car. Overall I'm very happy with this shop!

Jimmy and the spanish mechanic are very polite and honest

by - Verified Customer March 07, 2017

I was overcharged for unnecessary work, and the initial problem was not fixed properly. I returned to a couple of hours later to complain that my AC was blowing hot air, which had not happened before the repair. By the time they looked at it AC worked fine. Driving two days later, the AC ran hot, temperature gauge rose rapidly, something blew, I immediately pulled over, and my engine died. Luckily, I was able to pull over safely, and no one was hurt. $350 tow home at night with my children. I had it towed to them, and they told me that the AC running hot is the first sign the thermostat's broken, which caused pressure on the valve. They are not taking any responsibility. I paid $1250 for initial 'repairs', and they told me engine is $3500-4,000. I have to scrap the car!

Car came back with small greasy brown marks at the tail end- difficult to wipe off. Please keep an eye out to refrain from this. When I turned the car on the radio was blasted high, please keep it at a low level it surprised me. Otherwise, good work on my car.

I have had to return to fix car now several times to have repairs redone because they were done improperly the first time. Jobs are regularly outsourced to less-knowledgeable staff and done poorly. Management has decent customer service but customer service means nothing if the work is poor quality.

The service was fast enough, but I didn't feel that my preferences were listened to by staff. I wanted a regular oil change not the recommended synthetic version. I know the synthetic is recommended and choosing regular would void my warranty (which was already expired anyway) and appreciated that the staff explained that to me, but I felt like they could've been a little quicker to accept my decision. Also, I noticed after leaving that they smudged the interior of my car (which is light grey) in the door frame. That will affect the resale value, unfortunately.

I came in and received a quote that I thought was pretty fair. I was able to bring it in and the work was done at the time they said it would be. Nice employees and owners. Only complaint is that a drink that was obviously not mine, since I know what I drink, was left inside my car as trash and part of it got on the interior and dried up in a nasty fashion on the interior. Too bad I realized this after leaving the shop. Then days later, when I went to get change out of my change jar from the center console, it was gone and I'm sure it had to have been the same person who left the drink in my car. Lastly, the work on my car had nothing to do with the interior, so if they were in my car it was to move it or take what they took.

Jimmy was very condescending when I explained that I needed a new master cylinder. He treated me like I had no idea what I was talking about then called to tell me that I did in fact need a new master cylinder. He assured me that my wiring issue was fixed and that I would not need to worry about them. The issue returned within a week and I had to return. The issue has returned yet again within two days of leaving the shop but is now fixed thanks to a skilled mechanic in my area. I called FixCarNow back to see if they would honor a refund due to the poor workmanship but I have my doubts seeing as the man on the other line didn't even ask for my phone number. This experience was extremely negative and inconvenient. I hope that Jimmy learns something about business and customer service from all of this.

Questions Answered by FixCarNow West LA
do i need to change the transmission filte...
Yes, change the filter and flush it also. After this service it should be fine to only flush the trans fluid as long as you proform the service regularly.
do i have to use ac-delco spark plugs? bec...
Yes, we use AC Delco plugs at your request. The best way to improve gas mileage is to keep your oil clean, change your air filter, keep your tire pressure at the proper PSI. Also not a bad idea to change fuel filter every 30,000 miles.
