I am a car guy who does a lot of basic work on my own cars. However, there are those times where something comes up that is above my wrenching acumen. That happende recently when the tachometer gauge in my track car started moving erratically. Since this was a likely electrical problem, it had to be taken somewhere. I had used Santa Monica motors several years ago for repair on a former Honda I used to own, and enjoyed the service then. Well, the same holds true now. I was given a clear description of the electrical problem, and it was fixed that day to my satisfaction. My second car is a dedicated track car that is far from stock and highly modified. This did not discourage Karim (owner) from working on the car. This place is honest as the day is long and you get nothing but the feeling that they simply want to get the problem solved and you back on the road. Highy recommended.
