We appreciate you showing your support, Deborah. Please just get in touch if you ever need anything else. -Karim R., Owner
Excellent service! Highly recommend. I stumbled upon this place for a smog check - they took me in right away, I was in and out in 15 minutes. The only problem with the speed was that I was having such a delightful conversation with Bob and would have gladly waited longer to chat with him more :) ! It’s a bit pricey at $69.95 but there was a $10 off coupon they told me about so it wasn't as bad and I prefer to support small local businesses. Definitely check them out and make sure to say hi to Bob!
Heather Blanda
Heather, we sincerely appreciate you supporting our local business! We're glad to hear it was a seamless experience full of friendly conversation with the one and only, Bob. Come on by next time we can lend a hand with your smog check! -Karim R., Owner
very impressed with their work & honesty. they pointed out pressing & long term areas of the car i should keep an eye out for without trying to upsell me - a webpage of your car with photos documentation. very helpful. i asked if they could look at the repair that the dealer (Toyota of SM) had to legally make because of their mistake & SMM mechanic inspected my oil pan & documented the repair with plenty of photos of the underside of my car. my grandfather was a mechanic & i grew up fixing cars. they pointed out it was time to change my air filter, but left it up to me to change it myself ($21 Toyota OEM part) if i preferred. the dealer on the other hand tried to upsell me at $450 which is why i now bring my 3 cars here.
Honesty is our policy around here, and we always want to go above and beyond to show our customers that. We're sorry that you had that experience in the past with a shop, but we're glad we've been able to offer seamless repairs for you. Please let us know if we can ever lend a hand in the future with any of your vehicles! -Karim R., Owner
