Why Should I Choose Your Auto Repair Shop?

The biggest reason our customers cite their loyalty is because of how we care for them. We genuinely care about you and your vehicles. You will see this immediately when you call or come into our shop. But, there’s much more than that.”
— Patrick Walton, Owner

Here is a short list of reasons to give us a try:

  • 12 Years Chosen Best Auto Repair by Ventura County Star Readers: Each year the Ventura County Star newspaper asks its readers to vote for their favorite companies.  For 12 years, we have been voted #1 for auto repair by them.  Remember, that’s not us telling you how great we are, that’s our customers.
  • AAA Approved: Fewer than 5% of auto repair shops in Southern California are ever approved for AAA’s program.  This means their trust for us is strong enough for them to send members here.
  • 99% Customer Satisfaction from AAA Surveys. Each year they take hundreds of our repair orders and survey them.  Each year we rank right at the top with 97% or better Customer Satisfaction!  That is great for any company, but even better for auto repair.
  • Large Facility to serve you faster and better: We have 13 service bays with state-of-the-art equipment.  This means we can get your vehicle serviced quicker and expertly.
  • Full Service Shop: Our shop can provide just about every service and repair need, from smog checks and oil changes to engine replacements and complex electrical diagnostics.  We do it all and we do it well.
  • ASE Blue Seal of Excellence Recognized Business: There are over 750 registered shops in Ventura County. Only 3 of us are recognized with this esteem status from the Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE). This means our staff is extremely well qualified to provide the service for your vehicles.

How Can I Expect To Be Treated By Your Staff?

The one thing people say they like most about our shop is how we care for them. It’s true, we are caring people first. We care about you and your vehicles. We are sensitive to the inconvenience you experience with auto service and to the costs.

We have structured our shop to make your experience as quick, affordable and convenient as possible.

It’s natural for our staff to treat you with respect and kindness (we screen for this in a big way when hiring). Where other shops may talk down to you, or have some kind of attitude, we don’t do either.

We talk to you on your level, and we never talk down to you. We inform you of your choices and help with with the right advice you need when you need it.

This is probably the main reason that so many people have chosen us as the #1 Auto Repair Shop winner in the Ventura County Star Newspaper for 12 Years.

Are You AAA Approved & Whats Your Rating?

Yes, we are one of the esteemed AAA Approved Auto Repair facilities.  We have been AAA Approved for over 25 years.

Fewer than 5% of all Southern California auto repair shops ever become AAA Approved.  This is because of the stringent guidelines of AAA.

AAA demands that their approved shops meet these guidelines so that they can feel confident when referring their members here.

Part of staying qualified as an approved shop, AAA requires that we provide them with hundreds of our actual repair orders. They take them and conduct a survey of our customers. Survey participants included AAA members and non-members.

The results of their surveys have been very strong year after year. Their latest survey gave us a 100% Customer Satisfaction rating.

We will continue to work hard to earn that rating. It means a lot to us and to the members of AAA.

How Do Your Prices Compare To Others?

We are NOT a shop that cuts corners on your repairs and service. Therefore, we are not the cheap shop in town. However, we are not the most expensive either.

Typically, we are about the same for other shops in the county that have the high standards as our company. In other words, when you find a shop that hires the top-notch technicians, uses the finest quality parts and fluids and is current on equipment and resources, we will be about the same price.

We are sensitive to your budget too.

That’s why we try to offer you options for service. We will tell you which items can be delayed for a later time and which ones are more urgent. We provide you with the advice and information you need to make an informed choice — without the pressure you might experience in other shops.

Do You Have A Customer Shuttle Service?

Yes, we do!

Our shuttle service makes getting your car serviced easier. All you do is show up at the shop with your car for your appointment and Karen, our friendly shuttle driver, will take you to work or home. Then, when your car is ready, she’ll be there to pick you up and drop you off at the shop.

How’s that for easy? It’s sure easier than arranging a ride with a co-worker, friend or family member.

If you are used to the shuttle service at dealerships, read this:

Some people are timid about using our shuttle service because they have used them at the dealerships. The dealerships often have you wait some time before the shuttle arrives. Then they pack the van with customers from all over the area and your drive can be a long time.

At our shop, we do it differently. Typically, you are the only one in the shuttle van. This way, you don’t usually have to wait for the van to show up and then it drives you directly to your home or business.

How Long Have You Been In Business?

What Kind Of Quality Can I Expect?
