  • *****

    $40 for synthetic oil change
    $95 for brake pad
    Quick and friendly service. They don't try to sell you other services like some places. I was going to get both brakes changed and he said I only needed one brake.

  • *****

    Had all my cars serviced for over 15 years, oil changed, brake jobs, smog test. Very honest, not much waiting time. Highly recommended.

  • *****

    I don't write many Yelp reviews, but this place deserves it. They've earned my respect and loyalty since I've been bringing my cars here. It's been several years now.

    They discuss problems and solutions. They don't try to upsell. They are knowledgeable and capable. They complete work promptly and price their work reasonably.

    I know a little more about cars than I let on (though certainly not as much as they do) and everything they suggest is reasonable and sensible. I trust them.

  • *****

    Just found this business. They do auto repair and smog check. The owner Hank is a very nice guy. He provided some really useful advice for me to solve the current problem.

  • *****

    Hank is very friendly and knowledgeable about his duty. He did not pressure me into any other service other than what my car needs. Price is reasonable and service is quicker than I expected. N. El Monte Automotive is a great auto service place.

  • *****

    Great service! I was recommended by a friend and Hank the owner took care of my car and helped me out with getting the right parts! I would definitely recommend Hank to all my friends!

  • *****

    Been coming here about 5 years now. ALWAYS great service and quality work. Great pricing for brake services. Recommended my friends & family to stop by.

  • *****

    First time visit after reviewing other yelpers and they know what they do.
    I'm happy to find this place for my car care and will keep coming back.
    Nice service and quick results!

  • *****

    Highly recommended! Hank is an honest guy like other people said. I just came back from his shop to have my brake pad changed less than an hour ago. After asking at least 10 different shops, Hank gave me the cheapest price for my car. He charged me $50 for the labor, while other place told me $120 for the same labor. I also asked him a lot of other questions regarding my Nissan Sentra and my other car. He nicely answered all of my question and gave me advice on some parts that I don't have to change (my current two favorite shops told me to change). I will definitely go to him from now on.

  • *****

    Awesome place got my radiator changed within no more than 2 hours max very honest and reliable mechanics here

  • *****

    This is the service I get from this shop,no waiting,reasonable price!friendly and speaking multi languages

  • *****

    Best mechanic in the San Gabriel Valley. Hands down. Or you can go to your dealer and pay for a diagnostic, only so they can charge you an arm and a leg for shit you don't need. Your choice. I asked for an oil change with 1k miles left before the sticker, and the man refused to let me waste the $20. That's what I call FAMILY. Love this guy.

  • *****

    I called around to see who will pull an engine code as my daughters car had a shutter and light on. When I called, Hank asked me to tow it in, he will pull codes at no charge. Being that I work in the industry, I know this is not always a freebee. I had the vehicle towed, found it needed a sensor. Due to the fact he inspected and quick repair time, I approved the repairs. Good decision, I was happy and he made $.
    Thanks Hank!

  • *****

    We brought our dad's old camry in once again a couple weeks ago to get knock sensors replaced as we needed it done before getting a smog check. Hank helped us last time our car overheated (our first time then) and we found him not only competent but also very communicative, honest, and very fair with his fees...so much so we came back to do the more costly and time intensive work. Hank always answers when we call and is great (and patient) at explaining things he finds and work needed, esp when we have lots of questions. As he replaced our knock sensor and burnt wiring case, he found a leak in our radiator without us mentioning - which was a true find as we'd noticed leak under our car. He also noticed our upper brake light was out and replaced that. His work is thorough and prompt. He doesn't drag out the repair and keep our car unnecessarily long. We also appreciate that he explains options to us for OEM or genuine parts and their pros/cons and $$. Given that ours is an old car, he was very sensitive and advised what was worthwhile and what might not be...with ultimate decision left naturally left to us. Loved that he helped us be informed customers. We ask lots of questions and do our own research; in light of that we definitely find Hank reliable and trustworthy. Would not hesitate to return to Hank for future work.

  • *****

    Reasonable work from Hank and his crew. Been coming here for quite awhile and always handles any auto job that comes his way.

  • *****

  • *****

    good service and very kind people. prices very reasonable and they have this thing where u check in on yelp and get ten percent off.

    overall staff is pretty nice and experience is decent.

    would come back as it is very close by.

  • *****

    Great place to get work done right and fast great work ethic and fair pricing will be returning for future needs

  • *****

    Very friendly service, the boss is a very very easygoing person and the price is fair.

  • *****

    At the end of the workday on Friday 7/13/18, my dad's car overheated and broke down. I was a couple hours away so I needed to find a trustworthy mechanic to whom I could get my dad's car towed. Though the Auto Club recommended an Auto Club approved facility equally close by, we chose to have our car towed to Hank for various reasons. Hank was nearby (within towing radius). He had many good reviews so that reassured us initially. The reassurance was confirmed with actual experience: each time I called (which was several), Hank answered promptly and listened patiently to all my concerns/questions. Plus, he was willing to receive our car towed to him even if the tow may arrive a little past his closing time. He kept the car overnight and assessed it first thing the next morning. He was very good about calling with his findings and explaining options to us. Never did we feel pressured to make any fixes - after all, we asked a LOT of questions throughout and, once again, Hank was very patient to explain and answer each time. We mostly appreciated his pointing out what repairs were essential and why (so the car could go & go safely) ... and what repairs were labor intensive (thus costly) and not essential at the time (car could still perform fine and safely). He told us the symptoms to watch out for so we could be proactive. He test drove it and we did as well, all to our satisfaction. Our repair costs could've been triple what it was but Hank's prices were fair (we keep records and checked around)... AND he recommended we wait on work we DIDN'T NEED to do (though he could've easily told us we needed it done and made more money from us!) We have no hesitation bringing our car back to Hank for future needs and are glad we found a local mechanic we can trust.

  • *****

    Hank did a great job fixing the parts that needed and all the installation, way cheaper than any other shops by far. Great service, great deal, super happy!

  • *****

    I've been coming here for years. They are honest and fair. He is the only one that works on my cars and the rest of my family's.
    He lets you know if your repairs can wait . That's what I like. Some of these other shops tell u you need to do all kinds of things.
    So if ur looking for a good and fair shop this is it.

  • *****

    My little Honda Civic has needed some serious maintenance lately and when I asked around my family and friends both recommended this place. For months I have been despairing over the fact that parts in my engine have had several leaks, which other mechanics have told me about, but when I went to have Hank take a look, he and his crew noticed some issues that other places didn't catch, and were very transparent and explained to me about what needed to be done. Everyone is very friendly and professional here. The service was performed in a timely and excellent manner, and now I can drive with the peace of mind that my car is back on track. I will definitely be back in the future for my car's maintenance and oil changes~!

  • *****

    Good Service, reasonable price! They check my car for problems very detailed. I will recommend it in our neighborhood.

  • *****

    Have been bringing my cars here for many years. Hank and all his staff are so helpful and professional. Best place!

  • *****

    I'l admit I don't know much about cars, but I do know what I've been through before at other places.

    I didn't catch any names, but this place offered friendly service while still getting straight to the point. There weren't any attempts to upsell products. Everything was my choice with no pressure.

    I came in just for an oil change, and they were done in about 30 minutes (There were maybe only 2 other customers at the same time). Price was totally fair considering I have a sport SUV. Even nicer of them, they did a general check and topped off my power steering fluid without charging me for it.

    Overall, way better experience than the dealer and other service stations I've been to before.

  • *****

    Hank is a hard-working, great mechanic. He is always honest and let's you know how to fix the problem without changing unnecessary parts. I trust him and he gets the job done. I have been coming here for years. He never disappoints and usually gets the job done within the day!

  • *****

    Fast, efficient auto service. Great prices. Hank and his crew have great customer service.

  • *****

    Came here to get an oil change (since I used to work in the area). They seemed to have the best prices, so I ended up getting my oil change for much cheaper then I thought. The worker was very friendly. Even though his English was limited, he still smiled and attempted conversation with me. If I'm ever in the area and need an oil change, I will consider coming back.

  • *****

    Excellent service at a great price! Showed up at 9 when they opened and they had my vehicle done in a few hrs. I thought it may take all day. Fast friendly service. Hank and his crew are great.'

  • *****

    This place a great and very friendly excellent service Hank did a great job on my car .

  • *****

    Took my 2001 Avalon in recently to get some work done. Came here cause of all the great reviews on yelp and I wasn't disappointed. Great customer service. Left my car there for the whole day cause of all the work in needed and pick it up the next day. I noticed on my way home that there was a problem with the axel he put on so I called him right away and he replaced it the next day and now my car runs as smooth as when I first bought it. I will gladly come again and recommend him to all my friends

  • *****

    Hank is great. He will tell you if you need it replaced or not. Other shops will say ok let's replace it even if you could still use the parts longer.

    I have been going to his shop for years.

  • *****

    Had work done here a few times plus oil changes on different cars they have been very fair and have done good work.

  • *****

    This place is great, Hank and the other guys that work there are all nice and friendly. The prices are very fair and they don't rip you off I recommend these guys.

  • *****

    This is the best auto center, and the staffs are very nice and responsible. The staffs are professional. U will save ur money and time. I'd like to be here for my car.

  • *****

    I have been looking for a shop for my 2005 Honda odyssey engine mount problem thru several familiar auto shops who I trust for a long time in the past. Until I talk to this shop owner Hank Jann, I realized I have been fooled by those old shops for the reason that it was not a easy money making job so they just keeping telling me that my car has no problem. I fund out the person who work there were all very honest and did a great jobs. The price is very reasonable and the result was amazing. Now my 2005 Odyssey at the mileage of 130,000 is driving just like new again so powerful! I was almost trying to sell it cheap because seems nobody can help me the solve the problem.
    Again I took my 2004 Lexus last week for changing the timing belts. Hank fund I have a water pump leak and suggest me to change it while when this convenience time. The result again was
    very satisfied .
    I will recommend this shop for their honest and great professional skills.
    I am 62 years old , this is the first time for me to do a review in the computer ever.

    Just because noways this kind of honest auto shop is hard to find and I am impressed with those old skillful technicians who are doing their job decently for their whole life. I respect this type of old fashion worker attitude. They won my trust without worlds.

    Most professional, knowledgeable, and friendly automotive service place ever. I highly recommend them for any of your automotive repair needs.

  • *****

    This place is great!! Always home here for oil changes and smog checks. Friendly workers!!

  • *****

    This place is great, the mechanic Peter helps me replace the brake, and tell me every detail how I should take care of my car. The service is great, price is reasonable. This place is awesome, I definitely will come back again.

  • *****

    Best customer service and fair pricing. I'm very happy to have found a reliable place for my automotive needs.

  • *****

    I agree with the other reviews I read.
    I have been coming to these guys for nearly 30 years, since they were still in San Gabriel. My children now go to North El Monte Auto.
    They are dependable, reliable, always helpful, quick, affordable and honest.

  • *****

    I have taken my car to the dealership (nissan) and was given outrageous prices - which is pretty much what I expect from a dealership..........but then I take my same car to Hank and he literally cuts the price in HALF............unbelievable.........he also lets me know that some of the work the the dealership "said" I needed is not really necessary. Fast, friendly and they get the job done with a great price. HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND HANK AND NORTH EL MONTE AUTOMOTIVE!!!!

  • *****

    The good quality service, high efficiency service time and price are all impress me. Hank is very professional and very honest to advice me all the issues on my car, even he will advice me no need to waste money for some issues I was concerns. Highly recommended !

  • *****

    Hank is the man! Took my car in for a coolant service. Pricing is very good and I also like how honest he was with me. Location is great and has lots of room. I definitely recommend to give Hank a chance.

  • *****

    Wow, I really got lucky finding this place! Hank is the best. I live way over in Hollywood, but I was looking at buying a 36-year-old Datsun 280ZX that happened to be in El Monte. So based on the Yelp reviews I took it here to have a mechanic check it out. Hank drove it, put it up and gave me a full run-down of what was wrong with it, including pointing out under the frame where it had been reinforced after two minor accidents. (The owner was standing right there and had just told me it had never been in a fender-bender). For all this, Hank only charged $30. When I decided to buy the car, somewhat against his advice, I took it straight to him for a new wheel bearing. His price was very reasonable and he even knocked off the $30 for evaluating the car in the first place!

    The car needed more major work. It needed basically a whole new front suspension, and a new gasket on the exhaust manifold, which is a very delicate job on these cars. If it's not handled properly or there's too much damage to the studs you can end up needing a whole new cylinder head which is super expensive. To his credit, Hank said up front he didn't want to get involved in a big project on an old car because one problem can lead to another. But you know, an honest mechanic is hard to find, so I prevailed on him to take my case.

    In the end, he did a fantastic job. The Datsun runs and feels like a whole new car. Hank had initially quoted me a very fair price and told me it would take about two weeks, but warned it could be significantly more time and money if something was wrong with the head. But nothing went wrong. The job ended up going faster than expected, and he actually charged me less than the initial quote! I've never had that happen at a mechanic's shop, but that's the same way I treat my clients, so I feel like it was good karma. I got lucky that the head was okay to start with, but even luckier to have found this place, since any other mechanic could have really messed it up. I'm not sure if Hank will be happy to hear this, but I plan on taking the Z back for years to come!

  • *****

    I love this place! I've gone a few times for an oil change and today I came to get my brakes changed. The prices are always very reasonable (front brakes for $94 total) and the staff that work here are sincere and honest. They always go above and beyond, caring for your safety rather than trying to make money off of you. I've gone to a few repair shops in the past and always felt like I was taken advantage of price-wise due to me being a female, however they do not do that here. After seeing that one of my tires were balding, Christopher even helped me rearrange it to put it in the back instead of front and told me to get a new one as soon as I can because it's dangerous to drive with it. They even told me I can wait a little on my rear brakes as it still has some padding left for about 8,000 more miles rather than getting all four done today.

  • *****

    My family and I have relied on Hank for the past decade. He is honest and straight forward which is appreciated among mechanics. His prices are very fair and his work ethic is professional and time efficient.

    I've recommended N. El Monte Automotive to friends from all over Southern California and they've always been satisfied with Hank's service. Even now living in the Inland Empire, I am still finding my way back to my trustworthy mechanic.

  • *****

    Dealer quality work at half the price. This is the place I've been going to for the last 20 years. Hank is the most honest mechanic out there, you can't go wrong with his service.

  • *****

    First time here. Hank was very responsive and helpful to all my questions on yelp and answered them quickly. Good rates and fast service.

  • *****

    While my mom's car was parked at my house, her starter had failed. I had to find some place local to fix my mom's car so I found this place on Yelp. I believe the person I talked to was Hank. He quoted me a great price to fix the starter and the repair was done that day. This was 3 months ago, and there has been no problems related to the starter. Thank you Hank.

  • *****

    This is my favorite place to bring my car for any problem, the price the Hank give is very honest, and I'm really recommend this repair shop for everybody.

  • *****

    This is my favorite automotive center, I live at Diamond Bar but I drive all the way to El Monte to have oil change and other repair matters, the owner & mechanic are very friendly & helpful, they win my trust.

  • *****

    My friend referred me to this shop, boss hank is very nice and friendly guy. The service is excellent and finished all maintenance in just 30 minutes save me lots of time and money, I would give full star rating to this place. recommend to have car maintained here. Definitely will come for next service!!

  • *****

    Fantastic service! Very nice people work here and they have reasonable prices. I would most definitely recommend.

  • *****

    Been coming here for more than a decade. Always get the best quality customer service from Hank and Christopher. Highly recommend everyone. Also I drive 30 mins to come to this place to get my car fixed. That's how good they are.

  • *****

    I don't usually write reviews but since I have been coming here for over 10 years, I feel compelled to share my favorite mechanic spot. I love this place!! Hank is a trustworthy guy and very frank and honest. He tells you as is but doesn't try to oversell anything. He's not pushy as well. I have had my bad experience with other mechanics in the past and boy was it difficult to find one that is trustworthy and honest. Not to mention, he finishes the car in a timely matter. Since I found him, I've only been coming to him for all my car troubles. Thanks Hank!! You guys are the best!

  • *****

    Had a problem with my drive belts squeaking and North El Monte Automotive fixed the problem with ease and professionalism. I will be back again to do more service on my car here!

  • *****

    Honest and professional

  • *****

    I was skeptical about this shop when the man quoted me double the price to possibly replace an A/C air compressor $500. The conversion was done quickly and didn't need a new compressor (thankfully). The man only quoted me for repairs but when I returned for an estimate and diagnostic results, he had already completed the job. Only $95. I was pleased and I can recommend that you try this shop.

  • *****

    Honest trustworthy mechanic - Hank is the best! Good prices. Great service. Highly recommended.

  • *****

    This was my first time here recommend by a friend. Brought in my 2000 Honda Accord to replace my timing belt and power steering fluid pump. Mechanics are professional and trust worthy from my experience. Prices were very reasonable and great customer service. I will recommend this shop to family and friends. Ask for Hank.

  • *****

    I've been taking my car here since I could drive and can always rely on Hanks and his staff to get the job done. I would recommend this auto shop to anyone that needs service. Hank is always honest and gives honest rates

  • *****

    Hank is the best.....honest & fast....awesome mechanics...always helpful and willing to work with us if needed

  • *****

    Come here by friend recommit, great technical staff fix my car and reasonable price. The owner so honest to tell you something you don't have to fix now. That's never happen in other place. They all told you have to change this change that. Will recommit other friend come here

  • *****

    Took me a long time to find an good honest mechanic. Great service & don't feel like I'm getting screwed. Been bringing my cars here for over 10 years. Ask for Hank.

  • *****

    Came here for a second time to get my car fixed and Hank was a great help! They're honest mechanics that really help you get what you need fixed for your car. I highly recommend this place! Reasonable prices too!

  • *****

    Hank is the owner at North El Monte Auto. I started taking my cars to Hank several years ago. He is very honest and reasonable! I recommend him to all family and friends and haven't received one word of criticism yet.

  • *****

    Whenever you have a problem, even for the smallest thing on the car go speak to Hank. He's been helping me for the past 4 years. Very honest and loyal. The prices are arguably cheaper than most.

  • *****

    All I can say, is that I've brought my cars for service to this establishment for close to 20 years! Great service & trust! Hank Jin's staff of mechanics treat me well & I have the utmost trust & respect. Just recently when my parents I & I were stranded & the day was severely hot, our truck was towed there. Christopher, one of Hank's mechanics, offered my parents & I a ride back home. He didn't have to but he did! My parents & I were very thankful. Thus we bring our vehicles here for service. I really wouldn't take my vehicles to any other mechanic but here! I give this business 5 stars!!! I will continue to have my vehicles to be serviced here. Highly recommend!

  • *****

    Great work here! I came so they could change my egr valve and they did a great job. I would definite recomend you coming here. They are honest and get the job done right. Talk to Hank and he will take care of you.

  • *****

    Hank at north El Monte automotive was very helpful in diagnosing the problems with my car and got them fixed in a timely manner. I will be coming back here to service my car whenever I need something done!

  • *****

    I found this place through Yelp because my usual auto shop was too busy. This is my second time coming here. The first time I did an oil change for my prius. I didn't need an appointment and he said it would take about 25 minutes but I chose to leave and come back. It cost me $47 including tax for a synthetic oil change, which is about right. I normally pay about $50 at my other autoshop. I paid with credit card.

    Today I came to replace a headlight and it cost $18 with a cash discount.

    They offer a cash discount so if you can, pay in cash! They also offer 10% off labor if you review them on Yelp or check in on Facebook.

    The owner and workers speak both English and Chinese.

  • *****

    Very friendly service..Reasonable rate.. Honest owner tells you what is needed and what is not necessary..would recommend this to anyone..Stop by and check it out for yourself...

  • *****

    I love this mechanic shop! I have a 1997 Lexus ES300 and all work has been done here for the past 3 yr. I have an old car and had a few major issues but ever since Hank took care of it 2 yrs ago, My car has been running fine. The past 2 yrs it's just oil changes, a tune up and replaced tires there. They do such good work with very reasonable price and also very honest, therefore I am a loyal customer! Hank is a awesome guy! Sometimes I saw they work on El Monte PD vehicle as well so their work must be good.

  • *****

    Came here for an oil change on my lexus iS250 and left within 45 min. the guys here are friendly and i was acknowledge right away. 30 buck w filter and I'm out. will come back for a smog check and other services

  • *****

    I don't live nearby, but I'm more than happy to drive out of my way to get my car serviced here. They are very good, very reasonably priced and very HONEST. As hard as it is to find a mechanic you can trust, I'm very happy to be a loyal customer and would highly recommend them.

  • *****

    Good service and they are all very patient. They helped to check my car carefully. My car runs very well they helped a lot

  • *****

    I've come here so often that it feels like my 3rd home. My parents have been coming here since I was 5, and now I only come here for my car. (I once towed my car from UC Riverside all the way to El Monte just so Hank could take care of it). Hank and his employees are efficient and good at what they do. I don't plan on finding a new mechanic anytime soon!

    I would 10/10 recommend Hank and his guys to anyone around the area.

  • *****

    Very good service. Ask for Adam Jang. He is a mechanic. He is very good and trustworthy.

  • *****

    Always attentive to what needs to get done, and they do a very thorough job. We've taken all of our cars here for service, which has spanned the better part of nearly 20 years. Oil changes, tire rotations, alignments, smog checks, windshield replacement, diagnoses, and so much more.

    Hank, the owner, has always done right by our family. Minivans, daily drivers, luxury sports cars....he's worked on them all. And he does it right. Don't let the quick service fool you. He is thorough! What I love about his work is that he knows how to communicate with the customer. It's not about upsells or gimmicks. He tells it like it is, and never wastes anyone's time.

    I've referred numerous friends to this location and will continue to do so. It's lowered car friendly, especially for the alignment and any work that requires the lifts.

  • *****

    Very nice service with good price!! We got oil changed and brake changed within 1 hour. They examined my car in detail. Definitely will come back again!!

  • *****

    I have been at this auto repair shop for my car service work recently for oil change and brake service. I was referred by a coworker who have been takin his Honda Pilot here for over 10 years. Everyone is extremely nice and helpful especially owner Hank who is very honest which you do not find this trait nowadays in a auto repair shop. His price is really good for oil change or you can bring your oil and filter he just charge you labor. All and All I would recommend north elmonte automotive to everyone it's worth the try and they have many stalls, easy parking, wifi, and open Saturday's.

  • *****

    PRICE: Cheap oil change. Got a basic one for my 2013 Prius for $25. Takes credit cards.

    SPEED: Very fast. Made no appointment and was in and out in less than 30 minutes on a weekday.

    SERVICE: I think Hank is the owner of this auto shop and he's a very nice Chinese guy. I messaged him for an estimate and he replied right away! Everyone is super nice and friendly.

    WAITING ROOM: Not really much of a waiting room, just a chair or two near the cash register.

    OVERALL: Great for cheap oil changes. Takes credit cards. Fast Service. Speaks Chinese.

  • *****

    Will visit this location. Left last review by mistake. I heard that this is place is good with qualified personnel

  • *****

    ive come here for a few years for oil changes and various auto-needs. The prices are really fair which is why i havent bothered going anywhere else. Hank is the guy that owns the place, nice guy. If you have any questions they are really helpful over the phone!

  • *****

    Honest, trustworthy, reliable place, who provided services beyond my expectations-- such a rare occurrence in the auto repair category. I always take my car there because I know that I'll get a fair price and that their repairs are professionally done. They are very knowledgeable and always explain the issue clearly before any work is done. Definitely very friendly and repairs are on a timely manner. Highly recommend this place.

  • *****

    I recently started bringing in my car after they fixed an oil leak that couldn't be figured out from 3 different other auto repair places. I am very sorry I didn't come to them earlier because I probably paid for unnecessary parts and repair for the leak last year. I am glad I found a reliable and decent priced auto repair shop!!

  • *****

    We love Hank. Always honest about what we need to get done. Great price. Great service. We referred a friend here after she was told she needed a $500 brake job. Hank gave her an honest inspection and she only had to spend $180!

  • *****

    Hank is always honest and willing to help out with any automotive problem. He has a knowledgeable team and he is the only mechanic that I'll ever go to!

  • *****

    Honest mechanic, fair prices, Hank is the best, never tries to sale you anything you don't need. Highly recommended

  • *****

    Hank is awesome, I've been coming here for 10yrs and he's always done great work on my Honda accord. Labor rate here is $45 plus parts. Just had my front brakes done yesterday and the work is great.

  • *****

    Hank is very helpful and has been fixing cars for 20+ years. There is never a wait and the price is reasonable. They may not do a clean job...there are times I see greasy finger prints in my car after service but they are trustworthy.

    I just had my ignition fixed on my Honda Accord and again, this place has done a great job and provides great services in a time manner. I've been taking my car there for over 10 years for maintenance such as smog checks, oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacements, and a battery replacement. I even had my radiator replaced after cracking it when I sped through a dip on the street. They have competitive prices and the staff is friendly, knowledgable and skilled. I haven't had any problems with my car after having it serviced there. They normally don't do this, but they were nice enough to help me install a bike rack when I didn't know how. Kudos!!! :)

    Being a female, I am afraid of being ripped off. I often questioned other mechanics' motives when they suggested additional work and services at other auto shops. But that doesn't happen here. I deal with Hank all the time and he's super nice and honest. Sometimes I will bring my car in for a check up on a noise I hear and he will check it and say there is nothing wrong and requires no servicing while other places might have persuaded me to perform unnecessary work. This is my go to place for any auto service and I highly recommend this place.

    I've been bringing my car and my parent's cars to them for more than 9 years now. I started out just doing a smog check, but began bringing my car for oil changes as they seem to have reasonable prices. After that, I felt they were honest and the people were friendly. They did not make unnecessary repairs to the cars unless it was needed. Since then, I've had my brakes, tires, bearings, and battery replaced and have not had any issues with their work.

    I would recommend them to anyone if you are looking for a honest auto service with reasonable prices.

    reliable and friendly services. I have been using their mechanic services for over 20 plus years and recommended to all my friends and family. The price for service is cheap and reasonable, come and check them out. Also free WIFI available.

    I remember my parents coming here when I was little and when my sis and I got our own cars we've been coming here ever since. Hank and his entire staff are wonderful people. They are honest and genuine.

    I came here for an oil change during my lunch break. As soon as I got there they were able to help me and get my oil changed. It took them no more than 30 minutes, great service!

    I love coming here because they are very honest people and their prices are good. I've been bringing my car to them for over year now for regular oil changes and other maintenance. They do a very good job and like I said their prices are reasonable. I totally recommend this place

    hank's the man...

    he explains everything clearly, and straight to the point. doesnt keep you waiting, he'll try to get to your problem and fix it on the spot, if he can, so you can get on your way... no pish posh on things you dont need, and doesnt pretend your car problems bigger than what they actually are.
