I knew it was time for me to write a positive review for something on Yelp or I'd get kicked out of America. Then I realized the perfect business to pimp - Santa Monica Motors! Of course!These guys are the best. They have the best work ethic, the friendliest service, the most layed-back attitudes. And now Josh is missing a front tooth from a rugby accident, they even have street cred! lolThey are prompt, accurate in their assessments and offer such a personalized service that we hate taking our car anywhere else. They have often run oil and tire air pressure checks for us on the fly and for free, as well as advice on maintaining the vehicle and how to prioritize work that is ESSENTIAL and work that CAN WAIT a little longer which is handy when you live on a budget. The shop is clean and well organised; the staff are well-groomed, intelligent and polite; the advice is excellent and trustworthy.There are never long waits for service, besides which, the Lazy Daisy cafe is right next door, there is a big park with basketball courts across the road and Santa Monica City internet is free in the whole area, to help while away any time before your car is ready for pick up.I get the very strong impression that they do not need my money or my patronage, therefore their service never comes across as greedy, desperate or pushy. They are courteous, have a good sense of humor and understand how important a car is in this city. They treat your car as if it was their own. You can't ask for better than that.Clearly I cannot recommend their services highly enough. We're very happy repeat customers and now we live a few blocks away, we'll be getting the car checked more often.
