Reliable quality service.

i had come in for a pre-purchase inspection. the battery seemed to drain to 0 miles right after the inspection, which was confusing because it's weird to agree to buy a car if the battery isn't working right, and the mechanic there wasn't certain if it really worked well/held a charge or not. but everything said it was a good buy, and indeed the car worked fine after i purchased it and charged it in full!

Seems like the place to go for hybrid work in SM, new ownership but sounds like they've kept the work ethic of the old company

I brought my 2011 Prius in for an oil change. 50 dollars. By the time Santa Monica Hybrid was finished with my car, it cost me a 1000 dollars. They never explained options for the repairs. I am an out of work school teacher in a rehab program in Culver City, I am limited on finances at this time am looking to develop a good relationship with a hybrid specialist in Santa Monica and this relationship has not started out well.

I had concerns regarding services and I left 2 messages for the owner and over a week later I have not heard back. Unless I speak to the owner and can have some reassurance that they are keeping my car safe, I will not return.

Questions Answered by Santa Monica Hybrid
Some Leak When It Was Parked Then At Evening I Check No Leaks
What Could It Be on 2013 Audi A4 Quattro
Most likely that is air conditioning system condensate but if you are unsure, please take your car to specialist.
P0741 on 2000 Volkswagen Passat
Most likely you will have to replace torque converter, it is worn and lock up clutch is slipping. It is very common problem on 5HP19 transmissions.
I've Replaced The Catalytic Converters, All O2 Sensors, Purge Valve And Tune Up on 2004 Land Rover Range Rover
You still have error codes in engine control module. I'd recommend scanning it, then with error codes we will be able to recommend further action.
What Is A Reasonable Cost To Replace The "Abc" Pump? Oem Or Rebuilt? Parts/Labor on 2006 Mercedes-Benz CL500
It is common problem on all ABC equipped cars. Most of the time cause is lack of service as owners and most of repair shops does not have knowledge about how active body control system should be serviced. There is fluid and filter for ABC hydraulic system that should be replaced periodically and special procedure should be carried out at the time of service, that on most cases extends greatly life of whole system and especially the pump (it is called tandem pump that incorporates power steering pump and high pressure suspension pump in one body). ABC pump for your car is $2020 and to replace it it takes about 4-5 hours. Repair will also take 4-5 bottles of hydraulic fluid, ABC filter and "rodeo test" to bleed the system. We usually do height calibration at the same time.
New 2015 Audi Q7 Losing Power When Driving on 2014 Audi Allroad
From what you are describing it seems like fuel starvation. This car has 2 fuel pumps, low pressure and high pressure. When you release gas pedal, fuel pressure builds up then car goes fine again. I've seen that before, but since your car is brand new, Audi will have to repair that for you. Good luck!
How Can I Clear These P0715, P0743, 53, 58, 63? Replaced Conductor Plate on 2000 Mercedes-Benz C280
OBD scanner should erase all P codes. If they do not erase, you still have a problem in transmission electronics.
The Car Is 2005 Land Rover Lr3 With Fault Code P0116 And P0183.How To Repair on 2005 Land Rover LR3
Seems like you may have problem with coolant and fuel temperature. I'd suggest bringing your car to Land Rover specialist that will be able to read live data from both sensors.
Error Code 342 Cam Sensor. Cam Sensor Wires Changed. Still Engine Light On. on 2001 BMW 740iL
I assume that you meant timing chain, not "time change". You may have camshaft timing incorrectly set. It is common mistake, your car has VANOS on intake camshafts, there is special procedure involved when replacing chain & timing components. If you did not have problem with cam sensor before, I'd suggest checking timing first.
When Outside Temp Is Above 85 90 And The A/C Is On Shifting Is Not Normal. on 2014 Mercedes-Benz E350
Your car seems fairly new and should be under factory warranty if miles are not over. If no warranty, I'd suggest having your car scanned completely for any error codes that could point in the condition your car is experiencing.
Not Ready on 2000 BMW 323i
You may have problem with oxygen sensors or catalytic converter. Is that only monitor that did not complete? I'd suggest getting live data from oxygen sensors, and see short and long term air fuel ratio adaptation, then based on findings I'g recommend further action.
