This was the first major work to be done on the vehicle and they did a great job on the differential gear work. They quoted me a $100 higher but I ended paying less than that which is usually the opposite with other places. PAS is now my go-to mechanic for all my cars!

Tiffany was extremely helpful in booking me an appointment and figuring out what was wrong with my A/C. I had been to a repair shop that day who gave me the runaround and was going to charge me nearly $300 for parts and labor. I came in after my part was ordered and although it was the wrong one they wanted to find the right one immediately. They did just that and an hour later my A/C was running and cold. I was also given a discount for diagnostic and labor. My husband and I are military Veterans. Happy to support fellow Veterans!

Pacific Auto was recommended to me by a friend when my check engine light came on. I used the key drop and first thing the next morning I heard from the team, warning me that they were fully booked, but they'd check the service codes of my car and get back with me. An hour later I heard that it was a minor problem (a bad coil) and my car would be ready by lunchtime. They were fast and efficient and economical.

This was my first time at the repair shop and have to say it was a great surprise. They explained to me every single thing my car needed and they were very professional and friendly. After taking my car there all the little signs I felt before was gone. I am definitely going back for the next service :)

I Need To Add A Quart Of Oil Quite Often. What Could Be The Problem? on 2003 Mercedes-Benz C240 4MATIC
It is not normal but it is frequent that engine consumes a little oil, specially if you have high mileage. Unless you have an oil seepage somewhere. This could be inspected and may be corrected.

I Would Like To Know What Is Included In A Axle Replacement Bothe Sides on 2004 Hyundai Santa Fe
The CV (constant velocity) half shaft (or drive axle) is a mechanism that transmits power from the transaxle/differential directly to the wheels. It is comprised of both an inner and outer CV joint, CV boots, and clamps.
In an axle replacement all of these get replaced all at once.
