Los Angeles Motor Vehicle Inspection Reviews
The GTI was having hesitation problems under light to normal acceleration. The VW "Stealership" we took it to before wrong (no surprise there). But
Ivo (the owner) is a total professional at what he does, and we have no problem recommending his shop to anyone who needs a reliable and trustworthy mechanic. Thanks again!"
I told them everything I knew about the problem that I was expecting to change the thermostat and/or the water pump, but that I had checked the hoses and radiator and knew those were not the problem. I was hoping that this wasnt the kind of place that takes you as some kind of rich
I got a call the next morning. They said that they "think" the thermostat and waterpump need to be switched along with the hoses for $800!!! But that they may have to do more after that. So let me get this straight, I paid $46 for a diagnoses which you just regurgitated back everything I said to you, which also is a maybe to fix anything, and you wanted to fix hoses that don't need to be fixed, how much without the hoses? $588!!!I
subsequently looked up an online calculator to do this job in this zipcode and the high end was $510 (Low end $257)
THESE PEOPLE ARE SCAM ARTISTS!!!
so now im going to buy the parts myself take it up to a guy I know in pasadena (who gave me a free over the phone estimate, btw) and is charging me $100 for the job.I suppose if you like overpaying this is the place for you"
Staffed by one man. He greeted me and gave me a service form to complete, collected my key and my DMV form.
I gave him $40, cash.
I was the only customer at the moment, 4:30pm Friday afternoon.
The man finished the test (passed) in under ten minutes and answered my questions on how to report result to DMV.
No further salesmanship: I appreciated that very much.
On Monday, 12/4/2012, I arrived at about 10:20 AM and had only one car ahead of me that was already being tested. Several minutes after I arrived, the technician began the testing on my vehicle. What I appreciated the most was he was concerned with treating my car delicately...careful opening (and closing) the hood of the car, going in and out of the vehicle driver seat, he carefully opened and closed the door, etc.
I was in and out of there in about fifteen minutes, about the quickest time I have experienced thus far. I also used a discount coupon that I had been given by them on my previous smog check on my second vehicle, for 20% off.
This location has never let me down or given me pause. I will definitely be using them in the future and recommend them as your place to get a smog check.
