I was referred to this place 8 plus years ago. My friend had a Honda and he said this place specializes in them. I tool my Civic there and have been a customer ever since. These guys are amazing. Friendly and knowledgeable. And more importantly fair and respectful. I never once got work done and thought i was ripped off. Never once. How refreshing is that. I've had a few other cars since my original visit with the Civic and they are just as great with the other cars. I live close to the place but if I didn't I would certainly make the drive. This place is a gem. And Josh the manager is amazing.

This is the best place to take your car if you live in LA. I have had my car serviced at Santa Monica Motors since 2006. The staff are completely trustworthy and the prices are very fair. I would not take my car anywhere else.

These guys were great. Dropped off my car, used the yelp coupon for $10.00 off. They were friendly and got the job done in 30 minutes. I'll be coming back here for the next smog check.

So I have been going to Santa Monica Motors for a couple years now and I am always so pleased at the service and attention I get. Not to mention they are extremely fair, will fix anything for free if there is a warranty on the piece and just overall genuineness. Its hard to find a mechanic you can trust, I would never ever take my car anywhere else.

Very happy. This is going to be another great review for them but I want to point out some things you may find helpful. I'm a new customer of theirs. I have a 1991 Integra with 215K miles on it. So it needs some very specific correct care and TLC to keep rolling. I brought it in a month ago to decide if I was going to keep it or get a new car. So as a new customer Service manager Josh offered me a free inspection. This is exactly what I wanted. I was very specific that the car needs to regularly get me across town, Newport Beach, Santa Barbara and back. No not cross country but far enough. Later Josh reviewed it with me and together we prioritized the work needed and it made sense for me to get the work done and keep the car. It's been three weeks and I'm very pleased. A slight oil leak from a prior speedy change oil shop that put a wrong plug in the pan Josh fixed for free and all the other work, brakes, muffler etc. has help up and was done nicely. The shop is run professionally and clean. Josh and the mechanics I met were solid guys and I felt like they knew what they were doing and weren't trying to score extra unnecessary work off me. Solid work, good guys and came in close to on target with the estimate. I look for these things not the cheapest so truthfully I don't know how they charge with competition but for my car I really don't care. It was a great value and I'm happy to pay them for the good work. Nicely done. Thanks guys

all good. Josh and the crew do great work and are easy and professional to work with.

Always impressed with these guys. I am always nervous to take my car in when somethings wrong, fearing a car shop will take advantage of my ignorance but this is a trustworthy business, Josh is always in a great mood, and they will shuttle you around while you wait for your car (or you could go next door to Lazy Daisy Cafe). It's the only place I'll go

I take my car to Santa Monica Motors for regular service and have had nothing but good experiences. Having a 12-year old Honda with 140k miles on it, one really needs to stay on top of maintenance. When a surprise radiator meltdown happened I didn't think twice about having them take a look under the hood. Josh is always up front about repairs needed, repairs that can wait and cost of parts and labor BEFORE any service is done. They're pricing for parts and service is competitive and their service is honest, fair and accommodating. They are tidy too. Clean waiting room and I've never gotten my car returned to me with grease smudges, inside or out. I couldn't be happier and highly recommend them.
