Going to get your car serviced sucks and as a woman I'm always wondering if I'm going to get swindled. Not the case at Santa Monica motors Kareem the owner (?) is extremely friendly and tells you how it is. His goal, in my opinion, is to develop a lasting relationship and customers life and not take you for a ride. Also I've been to other places to get my car serviced and this has got to be one of the cleanest establishments I've come across. Maybe not a huge deal but it counts to feel comfortable somewhere and not smell like oil when you leave.
This is the best automotive shop that I've ever dealt with! Karim and Eloi are great to work with, totally honest and very knowledgeable. They make you feel right at ease and will take the time to explain to you exactly what you need and what your options are. The customer service was outstanding! I brought my Subaru Outback in to get serviced for the 30k mile check-up and they were half the price of what the dealership was going to charge me! I will definitely be a loyal customer!
This place is AMAZING. Great service, great prices, and Karim is both knowledgeable and extremely nice. Not pushy, and really helpful. Plus, a great place next door to have a meal while you wait! My car has never felt better...
I completely agree with Jonathan D. This is an honest, upfront shop. They will work a solution for you depending on your situation.
This is one of the few good shops on the west side. In fact it's the only one I would recommend. The owner is very honest and runs a clean, efficient shop that my girl friend didn't find intimidating (and thats rare.)I brought my old Saturn here and my new(er) Subaru.
Santa Monica Motors is trustworthy and fairly priced. Kareem is very helpful and clear about all charges. They also offer rides (both ways) for those who find it inconvenient to take their car in for service.
