My vehicle is a really old vehicle and they managed to still make it work. It is running great and they are very respectful.

The service there was great! I just need to get my battery replaced, I didn't have a vehicle to get there so he came to pick me up. He was very nice and respectful. The only downside is that they do not open on Saturday's.

I felt that I was pressured into getting things fixed to my vehicle, that were not necessary. I felt like he was a jerk and thought I didn't know what he was talking about since I was a woman and alone.

I was very unhappy with the service and I felt very pressured into getting unnecessary parts. I found them cheaper elsewhere.

All was great. Not excited about no work over the weekend but the job got done when said and have had no problem since. Like most auto places a little pricey but work was well done.

I really like Mel. He and his team have fixed several vehicles (cars and trucks) over the years. He is knowledgeable and direct, I like that. Competitively, the premium that you pay to have Mel fix things does not work out for the actual quality. I had one repair that they did (a smog inspection) that I was glad they do it by the book BUT, in the process they caused another part to be damaged. A few days after the smog check (passed no problem) I ended up with a part that put me on the side of the road and I could see that the mechanic had rerouted a hose and not reattached it. Not fun, but understandable. In other repairs, the demeanor is not 'this is the way to fix this that we recommend' it is more 'here is what previous people did that created a nightmare and it will be expensive.' Probably a 'bedside manner' class would help OR I'm just not the customer who responds to that style. Either way, after the next repair, had some issues and I KNEW that somehow the mistakes would be explained away.... I just have not returned. I really do like those guys, but I can go to other places and be served in a fashion that I have just as much confidence in the repair and the experience is more satisfying.

Message From the Shop
Mel Briganti has over 42 years experience in the automotive repair field. He started working at a GM plant on an assembly line-which he considered an unstable job because of the yearly layoffs. So he got a job as a clean up/ technician trainee at a shop in Torrance, California. In September, Briganti's celebrated it's 29th year anniversary in business.
