Best car experience yet! Fast, friendly service, knowledgeable staff and terrific attention to the customer.My car was making a rattling noise, and I had recently driven across the country to SM...unsure what was going on, I took it into Santa Monica Motors, which happened to be the first Honda repair listed on google search. I waited only a few minutes while they looked at the car, then they took me out to see the underbody I've never had a mechanic actually show me what was going on before - it was great. Karim, the owner, explained what was happening - the rattling was coming from a part which was loose. Specifically, the heat shield above the catalytic converter and I actually know what that is now, what it does, and what it looks like thanks to his explanation!. Both Karim and the mechanic I'm sorry I don't know his name gave me some options, and found an easy, simple and effective solution. No noise now!!!I would absolutely recommend this place and plan to go there for my smog check coming up, as well as any other car maintenance or repair that I need.
