Mechanic and auto repair customer

I had Googled "Smog Checks near me" and was able to upload a coupon to my email. The coupon was for $23 plus and with the certificate it was $32. I thought the man and wife that run this place were nice.

This place was amazing I had a problem with a 87 Nissan pickup I purchased did not have a catalytic converter they went out of their way to get me the least expensive one install it and get me back on the road thank you very much you guys are great

— Yelp User Review

I've been here twice to repair car damage and also come to this shop for maintenance, every time I leave satisfied. Fred and Mark are both so helpful and will always try to give the best prices! Definitely recommend!

— Yelp User Review

I came here because it was only place around that was open an hour earlier than everyone else and I needed a smog inspection fast. Bob and Frank welcomed me warmly and had it done in 10 minutes. Will come back.

Don't know what we would do without Fred and his team. They keep our 1988 Buick Reatta going. They do what they have to do even if it means having something custom made for it. Thanks many times over for all that you do...sometimes even helping with an after hours problem. PS  They have also done great work on our Land Cruiser too.  Aren't we lucky we found them years ago!!!

— Yelp User Review

I've been to many, many shops that left me feeling like I overspent for things I didn't need. Auto care experts leaves me feeling the opposite. I use my Dodge Ram for work so I put a lot of wear on it. Fred is always up front and honest with the things I need and the things that can wait. I now take my personal vehicles to them because of the customer service and expertise. Fair prices and immaculate work will keep me as a customer for life!!

— Yelp User Review

Excellent service!! I have been a customer for at least five years. Fred assisted me to pull a nail from my tire ad hoc, and helped me deal with insurance when I got rear ended. Thank you Fred!! The front office is very friendly too!!! Thank you Bob!! I recommend Auto Experts wholeheartedly!!

— Yelp User Review

This is a great find ... from the friendly greeting to the attentive updates and conversation with the staff ... I will now make this location my "new spot" for all of my car needs. The waiting area is spotless (floor, windows and seating), magazines beautifully organized and comfortable chairs! I only had a Smog Check today but the $30 off promotion was a great incentive! I can't wait to bring my little Corolla back to get her next round of work done here. Fast, friendly and efficient! Oh! And just before I left, the representative knew I needed a battery soon and he offered to check the urgency of replacing it ... Complimentary check and worked that into my appointment. This business really strives to make every detail of your visit an A+ experience!

— Yelp User Review

Excellent service guaranteed! These guys are truly Experts in their field. Very knowledgable and trustworthy. I am very happy with Fred and his team at Auto Care Experts, I have been coming here for many years and bring all my cars here. I always leave with a smile and piece of mind knowing my car is in great hands.

— Yelp User Review

I am 110% happy with them!! Words can not explain how grateful I am. They went above and beyond and I will definitely come back to them and only them. Hopefully I never have to lol. But if the time comes, they are my go to.

— Yelp User Review

I'm so glad I found Auto Car Experts in this location!  My car was serviced here for a repair and the team was detailed and patient with all my questions.  Their service was timely and of great quality. I also visited a second time (after having visited two other auto places) to troubleshoot issues with transmission parts/smog check and this location resolved my needs immediately and patiently.  Thank you!

— Yelp User Review

I have been taking my car to Fred/Auto Care Experts for about 15 years and would not take my vehicle anywhere else! I am a single mother and depend on my car for everything and have no back-up. Fred and his staff always work with me to ensure that I'm not without a vehicle for long and, more importantly, ensure that my car is running safely. They are upfront and honest about the repairs needed and never recommend anything that is not. I always leave Auto Care Experts feeling confident in the fact that my car has been responsibly repaired and at a very fair price.

We needed a smog check ASAP as our registration was due. My wife called around and was quoted higher rates. I made one call and it was 39 all in. We were in and out in 15 minutes! These guys are awesome!

— Yelp User Review

Very Clean Place! Customer Service is Excellent! I will be back when ever my care breaks down again! The Owner and the staff at Auto Care Experts were very Accommodating! They even have coupons

— Yelp User Review

This is a great place!-- I had rear shocks placed & a front end alignment. They also accept Auto Care One, which I was happy to hear. Mark was very informative & friendly on the phone with information and pricing and was able to accomodate me the same day! I was offered a free loaner car, but chose to wait for my vehicle, which only took about 1 1/2 hours. I had an enjoyable conversation with Mark. I thought both Mark & Fred were extremely willing to satisfy my  "car needs", as well as my personal comfort  while I waited. I even had a few "bolt covers" replaced by Mark & a scratch on the front bumper removed by Fred that had been bothering me for a few months. My Car is a 2010  & I try to keep it looking & running good!-- Thanks for a Great Experience Guys!

— Yelp User Review

We had to take our car in for a smog check. Customer service was very friendly and quick to explain what to expect. They said it would take 30 minutes to get it done, but it was finished 5 minutes before that.  The place has a nice waiting area. My son really enjoyed the collection of car magazines they had to keep him busy during the wait. We took it in on a Saturday morning and there was no wait. No appointment necessary for our smog check.  Next time we need a smog check, we'll be coming back here again. The guy also said they do oil changes and other scheduled maintenance. Maybe we'll look into getting our oil change done here next time as well.

— Yelp User Review

Fred and his staff are off the charts with their customer service. I came in from getting my father's out of state Sienna to be serviced because of a failed smog test I received elsewhere. They were able to get it serviced the same day. When I tried to go back to get it retested at the initial place, he wasn't able to because he was closing down for the day. Because I live in San Gabriel Valley, I wasn't about to drive all the way down to The OC the next day just for a retest. Fred went and made the test happen there. The problem was that I was short paying for the retest with them and I did t get paid until a few days later. Fred said no problem and billed me for the remaining $50. I sorely appreciate how understanding they were and I will be back to help service anything else my van may need.

— Yelp User Review

Auto Care Experts are a very friendly and educational service center for your cars. I discovered them several years ago when my local garage mechanic retired. You tend to rely on the honesty of someone you have known  for many years. I went to several other service centers and was not as comfortable with them. Then i discovered that Auto Care was close by & the reviews highlighted their friendliness & confidence in the work performed. As I had more work done on all my cars, i was told in detail what, why, when the car systems changed & needed repair. We tend to have in our minds the old & do not realize all of the changes that keep occurring. The other positive is they can handle anything.

— Yelp User Review

They made it very quick and easy.  The process of getting licensed in California can be daunting at times but, the Experts at Auto Care made it great!!!  I have brought both my cars here for emissions and its a great deal!!!

— Yelp User Review

Went here after being screwed around by everybody else. Will never go anywhere else, they are the whole Shabang and they know their stuff and are so helpful. They even do body work and alignments. It's a one stop shop that is actually managed and taken care of correctly. I'm a pain in the ass about my car and I can't be when I come here. Fred is absolutely amazing.

— Yelp User Review

Came here to get my smog check and it was easy and painless. I was in and out within 20 minutes.  Plus the prices were awesome! When I called they informed me that they had a $30 dollar off special for smogs. so for my corolla, it was only $38 bucks! Most places that I called were $50 and up, even with their "coupons".  The front staff was very friendly and knowledgable!! Plus the facility was clean and comfortable!  Will come back because they also offer standard routine services. Thanks guys!!!

Oh, procrastination. Why do you hurt so good? I'm T-minus 24 hours out from an international flight that will bring me back home in January 2016. My car's registration expires December 31, 2015. Of COURSE it needs a smog check. Of COURSE I wait until the last possible day, at nearly the last possible minute, to complete said smog check. I called Auto Care Experts at 3:40pm on a Saturday and the kind gentleman on the other end says, "Sure, not a problem! Come on in, we'll take care of ya!" (They close at 4pm btw.) I haul my lazy ass to ACE. WHILE they are checking the car and sending the info over to the DMV, I'm paying my registration fees to DMV on my phone (per the gentleman's recommendation). A Yelp check-in discount and 20 minutes of awesomeness in their spacious, clean waiting room later, I'm out the door. THANK YOU SO MUCH Auto Care Experts! I for sure HIGHLY recommend your services to anyone looking for a reliable and friendly auto repair/service experience :)

— Yelp User Review

I love this place and totally trust them. Not to mention the fabulous service with a smile by the owner Fred. I have been relying upon them for years to keep all of our cars in tip top shape. They go out of their way to give you a good price and service and offer a free loaner car when needed. I used to go here or there but now just here.

— Yelp User Review

Best pricing for auto care in town!! Service was superb and work was done according to the estimate. These guys are honest and not pushy. Knew what the problem was and fixed it in a timely manner. I would give them 10 stars if I could! Thank you to Fred and team, you guys rock! I will be recommending you to my fellow friends and family. Thanks!!

— Yelp User Review

I needed a brake light inspection! I googled it and found this company.  Since I don't live in the surround area; I was not familiar with this company.  From my first phone call to the home made cookies they shared; I'm so happy I found them. My favorite things: the receptionist; knowledgeable; friendly; can handle it all! The chairs in the waiting area are amazing. I want one.  Magazine choices are over the top great. Don't miss the bathroom; it's so clean you won't believe it.  The owner; very helpful and patient with all my questions. If you need help with your car; it will be well cared for here and so will you.

— Yelp User Review

Did a search for local smog check places. Saw this one and liked the price and good ratings. The service was fast, the price was right. What more could I ask for. My experience here was that *every single employee went out of their way to be kind to me* and yeah, it made me feel good, but my importance goes on quality of service performed and on price. I would easily consider to give this place my business again. Thank you!

— Yelp User Review

I want to give Fred and Mark a big thank you for giving me the best price on my brakes and master cylinder block. They really know how to take care of their customers. There service is very good and fast. My car is as good as new. Thank you Auto care experts, my passenger floor Handel broke and I had no way if opening the door from inside unless I would roll down the window and it was very hard, Fred checked it out quirky as I stopped by for few minutes and ordered the part and kept in touch with me for when the part is coming and had installed next day, I did stop by and he game me a loaner and it was all done by the end I the day and now I am all happy, this is called a great customer service. I recommend every body to check her first before they get anything done with their car.

— Yelp User Review

This is an amazing shop and I had a great experience!  I had a neighbor back into my car and ding the fender, so he offered to take it into this highly regarded mechanic and body shop. In addition to my small fender bender, I decided to have my front bumper looked at as well as some other scratches of my own. Marc and Fred were extremely friendly and helpful in giving estimates for the paint job and repaired my front bumper, looking good as new!  Definitely recommend this shop and will come back.

— Yelp User Review

I found this place on yelp and request a quote for quick smog check. they replied literally within 5 min and provided me an excellent price. Service is fast and I didn't expect much cuz it's just a smog check but they do all kinds of car related works. What me me like here the most because the front desk people are super nice and friendly. I would recommend my friends and family here. One more thing there is an enterprise car rental 1 min walk up the hill. Very convenient as well.

— Yelp User Review

I called about a smog check, having used Auto Care Experts several years ago, and I was surprised that the cost was the same. I went in that same day and was out in 1/2 an hour. Really nice and personable folks there.

— Yelp User Review

As always I got great service. Came in to get my oil change battery replaced and my 60,000 mile tune up. Freddy always does a great job and I needed a loaner car which he provided at no cost. When I came back to pick up my car it was fully detailed and look great and ran great. Would only take my car to this place. If you need a good mechanic in Mission Viejo this is the one.

— Yelp User Review

Auto care experts where going beyond expected.  I walk in without appointment and mr. Fred did take care of me on spot witch I tough that they are gonna make me schedule appointment since they where busy. Service was les expensive and faster then local competition.  Highly recommended.

— Yelp User Review

Professional and friendly people. Got my smog check done in less than 30 minutes for a great price.

— Yelp User Review

My car failed the smog check & had to replace catalyc converter ($368.52) & pay for computer monitor ($147). Autocare Experts is one of the government approved STAR Test-and l-Repair stations that handles CAP (Consumer Assistance Program) Repair Assistance which gives you upto $500 in emissions-related repair failure. Fred, the manager handled all the paperwork professionally as fast as he can and all workers there were professional and friendly. I got the rebate without any problem and my car passed the smokecheck with the new catalyn converter.

— Yelp User Review

Fred is awesome ! They got my car up and running real quick ! Will definitely come back again

— Yelp User Review

Great service and Quality work!!!  The car looks so much better than new. I appreciate all the detail and followup. Thanks!!

— Yelp User Review

Hands down the best service I have ever received. Fred, the owner, was very informative and very thorough. But most importantly, he treated me with respect. Now I am 21yrs old and every Automotive establishment I go to sees me as some kid who doesn't know anything. However, at Autocare Experts I was given very helpful information about my car without any upsale or phony scheme to try and take my money. This is a very professional and fair automotive facility filled with people who know what they're doing. I feel very comfortable leaving my car there knowing that it will get the proper service and care. 10/10 would recommend to anyone and everyone  Quick update, I went back to Autocare Experts this past week because I needed tires and I could not be happier with the service I received. Fred didn't try and sell me just any set of tires, he asked me various questions about my driving habits and where I typically drive the most (city/hwy) so that I get the tires that are better suited for me. It's like getting a personalized set of tires that were meant just for me! He also informed me about treadware ratings, weather ratings, and tire sizes. Service was hassle free and very prompt as always. Not only did I walk out with brand new tires, I learned a lot too. Never take your car anywhere but Autocare Experts!

— Yelp User Review

I needed a smog certificate so I tried a new place and I was really happy with the friendly customer service. The price was just right and the service was very fast. I would definitely recommend this place. Its also easy to find.

— Yelp User Review

Got my car smogged. Very nice customer service. Probably them most genuinely nicest auto customer service I've seen. Good prices too and deals on their website

— Yelp User Review

This place has been awesome to work with! Fred is very communicative and explains what needs to be done very well. I own a Volkswagen GTI and I am very picky about who touches my car. I feel confident knowing I am getting all the services my car needs and not being sold things it doesn't need. My Dad also brings his Audi here and loves their service as well! I will be coming back with my cars as long as Auto Care Experts is around!

— Yelp User Review

Just smoged my car here. Super fast fast and efficient service. And the price was unbeatable. Great place very good customer service. Highly recommended. Five star.

— Yelp User Review

These guys did a fantastic job at a fair price.  I brought in a quote from another competitive company, and Fred explained their stare-of-the-art paint matching system, and the intricacies of different paints over different surfaces (plastic bumper vs metal body panels).  Sure, I wish it was less expensive, but it needed to be done right, and he put me at ease with his level of expertise.   He was easy to work with, and made sure the customer experience was as smooth as possible.  Their 27 (?) years experience shows.   Body repairs are a nuisance, but it's nice to have it done right. Thanks!

— Yelp User Review

This shop is super friendly! I came here to get my car smogged with the $30 coupon and they took my car right away and it took less than half an hour, I would highly recommend. Everyone is super knowledgeable

— Yelp User Review

This place is absolutely fantastic! Excellent customer service! Fred is the man!!!!! Dealing with an accident can be very stressful, but not when you come here. They took care of everything in a timely matter and made sure that they were in communication with the insurance and kept me in the loop all throughout. Very affordable prices and extremely fair treatment. I will never go elsewhere! To Fred and the Auto Care Experts here, thank you so much!

— Yelp User Review

I brought my car in because my brakes were making a noise, so I knew I needed to get them replaced. I also asked about having my axle/CV boots repaired because it was recommended to me last time I got an oil change. They did a thorough check of my car and identified other parts of my car that needed repair and could cause problems in the future. I was aware of these issues from the place that does my oil change, so I know they were being honest about what needed to be done. Fred showed me all the parts of my car that needed repair in the shop and was very helpful and explained what needed to be done to my car. They let me use a loaner car since it ended up taking a few more days than expected and they needed to order a part from Acura.  Fred was extremely helpful and communicative through the whole process. My car is running smoother than before and I'm glad they went the extra mile to make sure everything is working fine!

— Yelp User Review

Took the car in for some routine service. Estimate was very reasonable service was performed promptly. I had a loaner car very clean. Friendly staff  and best of all great follow up. I would defiantly recommend them to my friends.

— Yelp User Review

Fred was my main point of contact. I emailed them and Fred responded quickly on the same day.  I was able to schedule an appointment on the same day and get serviced.  Very friendly and professional. Also I was able to utilize my coupon which I was very happy about.  I will be taking my car here from now on

— Yelp User Review

Very thorough work although it took a very long time (likely due to part access and insurance approvals). Fred is a kind and friendly guy who really keeps you in the loop through the process. Happy with the finished product, although there were a couple things that I would've been pickier about if my car had been in pristine condition going in for body work. Overall, I'd recommend them for honesty and good communication.

— Yelp User Review

I unfortunately was a victim of a hit and run, long story short, I found myself needing to apply for a salvage title for my little Fiat 500 sport. I walked in and was immediately pleasantly surprised by how nice these guys are! I was greeted by Fred who was my main point of contact. He was very kind and helpful! My car was unfortunately unable to pass the lights portion for my certificates and he was quick to help me find the parts I needed, order them, and have them put on! I usually hate going into auto shops because for a female is typically an awkward environment to be in. But the guys here were super knowledgeable, very helpful, and extremely kind! Oh, and quick! Will definitely be coming back and highly recommend!

— Yelp User Review

Great fast service.. look for fred his willing to help you out no matter what your car needs great guy

— Yelp User Review

I would recommend Fred and his technicians to my friends and in fact anyone. I requested a quote on Yelp for a new oil pan on a 2003 Toyota Highlander. He replied in less than ten minutes with a question did I mean gasket. Tried replying and got the famous Yelp error page. So I called him. The reason I needed a new pan was because after about twenty plus oil changes the plug gets striped out. Was it the fault of over rambunctious oil techs at Econo Lube and tune or just fatigue. Back to Fred. I watch him deal with an elderly lady while we were waiting. He was so kind , offered her food , a ride home. His guys did a great job on our suv. Picked it up when promised and price was the same as the quote. Thanks guys.

— Yelp User Review

This automotive repair shop is ran like a luxury hotel. Auto Care Experts is one of the only reputable shops in South Orange County that performs Brake & Lamp Adjustments / Certificates. When I cross-shopped about a dozen other facilities, Auto Care Experts had the most reasonable price by far. Fred is not pushy; he's very transparent and will only do what you are comfortable with. As I said before, the facility is well-organized and beyond immaculate. I could not recommend them more!

— Yelp User Review

I needed an emergency brake repair and I called few shops before come here and I am glad I ended up here, they were very nice, clean shop, knowledgeable and fair price and they finished the job when they promised me, I like this shop very much and will be back and recommend it.

— Yelp User Review

This was my first time here. I need a DMV Break and Lamp inspection and Smog to clear a salvage title. It is not a perfect vehicle and they were very considerate in doing the repairs needed on the spot so I wouldn't have to pay and retest break and lamp again. They were willing to also haul 3 old tires for me that I had in my van simply for paying the disposal fee. The fully inflated the tires for free and were transparent with their pricing. Would recommend.

— Yelp User Review

Wonderful customer service! Highly recommended with very fair prices. You'll feel very confident leaving here with your car repaired etc. They've been around for 28 years for good reason thanks guys

I'm very pleased and happy with the job done at this auto shop. Services are prompt, great costumer service, and professional. I have been coming to this place since 2014 when I first moved to south OC and definitely recommend them.

If I could give 10 stars I would. I had a truly positive experience at Auto Care Experts!  This was my first time getting a smog check on my Lexus and I was concerned it was going to be a tedious process and that I was going to be overcharged. No way! I requested a quote from Auto Care and within 5 minutes received an extremely affordable quote and the cheapest in my city. I made an appointment for 1:00 on Saturday and they had my car ready by 1:15!! In and out in only 15 minutes! They sent my certificate to DMV and honored the price I was quoted online.  I highly recommend this auto body shop. Thank you for the excellent customer service and speedy work. I'll be back for my oil change soon!

— Yelp User Review

My husband And I have been taking our cars to auto care experts for two years now.... Hands-down the greatest experience and I don't care I've ever had. Not only do you walk into a smile on the face but you can tell the owner still has joy in what he does after 20+ years and service.  The front office is clean, inviting and comfortable. Even without an appointment I'm in and out of there in no time for small things Like getting a smog check. Having been a communications specialist and customer service, service job roles over the years I've become very picky with the service industry... And I can say again that I am blown away by the quality of service here at auto care experts. If you're looking for a place with ethical ownership and practice, reasonable prices, care for their customers and all with a smile.... This is it!

— Yelp User Review

Had the pleasure of coming back in here and felt inclined to leave a review had my truck in here a couple years ago after being sideswiped and auto care experts had excellent customer service, they even let me borrow a car while they had my truck, happy to say the same level of customer service today as then

I took my 2009 SUV to Auto Care Experts to remove the many scratches and dings that had accumulated over the years.  This was to prepare my vehicle for sale or trade-in on a new car. In a few days they made my car look like new.  They had detailed the vehicle inside and outside.  They had removed all the dents, scratches, and scrapes. Their job exceeded all my expectations.   I recommend Auto Care Experts without reservation.

I came back to Auto Care Experts this week to get an oil change and my brakes checked to make sure everything on my car was good to go for an upcoming road trip. I can always trust them to keep me safe on the road, especially when I'm going out of state. Fred and his team do the most detailed and flawless job and if that's not enough they have the best customer service.  Not only is the shop always clean, I am always greeted with a smile and treated respectfully.  Since I am not a car aficionado Fred makes sure I understand exactly whats going on and what needs to be done in a way that is easy to understand.  100% recommend!

We have been taking all of our cars to Auto Care Experts for many years.  Both Fred and Mark are professionals in what they do.  They advise us when service is needed and when it is not needed.  They continue to provide excellent work and make sure the work is done right the first time.  I would highly recommend Auto Care Experts in servicing your vehicles.

Great customer service, friendly and knowledgeable! Large shop clean and even has a body shop. Perfect for all your one stop needs. I had some front brake noise and they were able to take me in right away and fix my truck. While in the shop they noticed some other things my truck needed that were not observed at the previous shop and took the time to show me the concerns and explained what the parts did and what the repair consisted of. Due to the lengthy repair they gave me a loaner car so I wouldn't lose time from work. They even detailed my car as a way of showing they appreciated my business. I recommend them to all my friends and family and recommend anyone reading this go by and see for yourself what a great shop this is.

Couldn't be more happy with the service!  My engine was shaking periodically so I took it to a local garage to have it checked out. They couldn't tell me what was going on but gave me an expensive quote. Called Auto Care Experts and talked to Fred who spent time with me on the phone asking about the car's history and what was going on. He made sane suggestions so I had them look at my car.  After the diagnosis Fred was very thorough about explaining what needed to be replaced to keep me safe on the road and what could wait.  The price to get everything fixed was much better than previously quoted.  As a woman I am always so worried about getting ripped off at these auto repair shops but now I feel confident that I found an honest place to take my car in for repairs.  Car runs great now...Highly recommend them!

I moved from Irvine to Mission Viejo in 2012; While living in Irvine if I ever needed auto repair service I'd go to a family friend.  His shop is in Santa Ana. So when I noticed that a repair light on my 350z was on I searched the web to find a local shop with good reviews. I found Auto Care Experts, the reviews were very good and it happened to be right down the street from my house. I drove over without an appointment and to my surprise Fred greeted me, offered to take a look at my car... AND, offered to loan me one of his cars to drive until mine was fixed.  The work was done and the prices were fair.

— Google User Review

I found Auto Care Experts because it is located close to where I live and I really feel like I lucked out finding them.  I bring my SUV here for all my car needs/advice.  I've had regular maintenance done like oil changes, coolant and brake fluid checks, smog check, combustion, and others.  They are a trustworthy auto shop. I feel comfortable when I bring my car in and the service is very friendly and knowledgeable.  I will continue to bring my car here because they do quality work and it's great to trust a mechanic when I depend on my car to run everyday for my job.  I've also talked to my neighbor who has had a lot of work done on his truck at this shop and he said this is the only place he'll go to.  That was good confirmation for me from what I had already observed.

Our Mercedes R350 had a big crack in the front bumper.  Fred and his team were able to repair it at less than half the cost of replacing it with a new part.  The fixed bumper looks as good as new!  I would highly recommend this shop.

the work done at auto care experts is outstanding. plus the staff is friendly, clearly goes over the needs of your car with you so that you understand what they are doing to your car. they are conscious of your time and don't charge you until you're completely satisfied with the work. In addition they clean up after themselves, always returning your car in a clean condition.

These guys are the best. I brought my car here 4 times the last 1.5 year since I've had so many different things braking down on it, I got a 98 Suburban. They always give me a good price and excellent customer service. I've been to a couple different places before autocare experts but non of them has the same kind of customer service and expertise.

I always bring my cars to Auto Care Experts! I have been coming here for 22 years. That says a lot. Fred always takes great care of my cars and has very reasonable prices. I get letters and coupons from Audi asking me to bring my car there -- same from Toyota but you can't beat Auto Care's quality care and prices. I won't go anywhere else!

Mark and Fred are awesome. They have always worked to accommodate me and my budget.  They have never pushed to have services done that have not needed to be done.  If anything comes up they have always called to discuss my options and the price.  I only take my cars here and have recommended them to everyone who is looking for a great place to take there cars.

I have been a very happy and satisfied customer of Auto Care Experts since 2009. Fred, the owner always gives the best service at the best price and that's what makes this shop exceptional. Extra perks: they provide you with a loaner car for free and you will come out with a clean, shiny car when the job is finished.  I recommend this shop very highly to everyone.

Couldn't be happier! Fred and his crew did a BANG UP JOB (pun intended) repairing my Audi S5. Their attention to detail and and customer service has been second to none! Not to mention Fred dealt with the insurance company's ridiculously low estimate to repair my car, thereby saving me time!

These guys are IT. Fred and the staff here are absolutely amazing, I'm a HUGE pain in the ass with my car and I'm very meticulous about who cares for it, I will never ever take my car to any other place. Fred upfront even went to the extent for a customer who was elder to help them with paperwork regarding registration when the man was having a hard time doing it, they go above and beyond and the best thing about this all is that they are HONEST. You pay for what you get here, there is nothing left out or unfinished, they are professional, they feel like family, AND they have services not a lot of other mechanics have such as body shop services, tire services, smogs, etc. this is a one stop shop. I'm in 😍

I took my truck in after it started having some serious problems. Everything was handled very professionally and I really appreciated the occasional updates on my truck while they were working on it. They gave me a very reasonable price and even helped me with a getting a rental car and financing the cost of the repairs. I will for sure be taking my truck back and I will recommend them to all my family and friends.

Been coming for years and have nothing but the best work and hospitality. Always very honest and upfront about what it will take to repair or maintain vehicles. I'm a plumbing contractor and bring all my vehicles to be maintained or fixed. Highly recommend. Love the option to use a loaner car if need be.

I came in for a smog check and was pleasantly surprised to walk in to a clean and well managed office/waiting area.  Fred and his team were very accommodating and helpful to ensure that my car was well taken care of.  This shop is reliable, professional, personable and really goes the extra mile to take care of their customers.  With his valuable insight, I was able to fix some bugs in my car by myself at no extra cost or repair.  I am a satisfied customer and highly recommend their service.  Thank you so much, Fred and your team!  You just gained another repeat customer 😀

I really thought that it was going to be many more months before I had the opportunity to write another review for Auto Care Experts, but my daughter's accident in May shortened that time frame up.  Fred, as always, was there to help us. I was certain that our 15 year old Corolla was going to be a total loss.  However, Fred was able to negotiate repair costs with the insurance adjuster to save it.   The repairs were impeccable, done in a timely manner and Fred provided a loaner car. Thanks Fred you did it again.

My husband And I have been taking our cars to auto care experts for two years now....  Hands-down the greatest experience and I don’t care I’ve ever had. Not only do you walk into a smile on the face but you can tell the owner still has joy in what he does after 20+ years and service.  The front office is clean, inviting and comfortable. Even without an appointment I’m in and out of there in no time for small things Like getting a smog check. Having been a communications specialist and customer service, service job rolls over the years I’ve become very picky with the service industry… And I can say again that I am blown away by the quality of service here at auto care experts. If you’re looking for a place… This is it!

I went in for a oil change, just to find out that I needed more work on my Tundra, which was over due. Several items completed in one day at a cost lower than estimated. So I was very happy. Excellent work and great value from these experts. Along with honesty, integrity and excellence in service. I was treated very professionally and kindly. I was concerned about the costs, Fred looked it up, and they had an absolutely fair price for the work I needed. I've had no issues so far, and plan to continue going to them for all my needs.

Great service! Everyone is so friendly and helpful. I called this morning to see if I could bring my car in for a STAR smog check. They were able to schedule me in for the exact time I was hoping for. They were ready for me when I got there.  Everyone was very nice. The waiting area is clean and very welcoming. They have fresh coffee and water. My car was ready in less than 20 min, but I wouldn't have minded waiting longer because it really is that welcoming.  I'll definitely be going back when it's time to fix up the paint on my car.
