I've been coming here for over 12 years, always very happily, for problems ranging from tiny (tail light) to huge (a whole engine replacement, 5 years ago). This time, a complicated diagnosis was needed, for a very strange engine sound, and they got to the source of the problem. Everything was handled quickly and effectively, and my van was ready the next morning, as promised. Allen and Edwin, the owners, are always so very polite, friendly and helpful -- and their prices are better than 2-3 other Pasadena shops, from which I've occasionally gotten estimates.

Allen at Certified Auto takes care of our fleet from vans to box truck. We are glad that he is honest and does not beat around the bush. Allen always shows us the parts that need to be replaced and explains what happened and why parts need to be replaced. I recommend this shop to my family and friends. Thank you, Allen and his brother for your great service.

Been going to Allen for some years. I had the oil changed about 2 months, but was talked into checking oil...it was too much $190.00 for old change. Other than that I'm ok.
