I got into a car accident in West LA and called mercury insurance to report the accident and get a tow truck to send me to a mercury approved shop they recommended. The other drivers tow truck showed up first and took her to a State Farm shop. Within a few minutes the tow truck driver I thought I called had showed up. However this tow truck driver said he was with State Farm and to take the car to same facility the other car was going to since it was her fault. I had never heard of another drivers insurance sending 2 tow trucks, but I regretfully agreed since I was not thinking straight having just been in an accident. I didn’t realize at the time but the auto body shop had sent this tow truck to try and get my car to their shop as well. They prey upon people who are in a emotional state right after an accident to try and get business. While I didn’t have any work done on the car since it was totaled, they ended up getting paid storage fees by the insurance company. It didn’t cost me any money however the whole thing feels very unethical. I reached out to State Farm and they confirmed they sent 1 tow truck. My tow truck from mercury showed up to no one there. I learned a valuable lesson here and thought it was important to share.

We are located in the heart of the Westside of Los Angeles and have been on the Westside since 1978! We live, eat, sleep, and breathe German cars! Come on down and see us and see why we've been around so long!
I have been coming to Robert Gryzbowski for 11 years now. He and his partner, Torg, at Two Guys from Sweden, are two of the most honorable gentlemen I have ever met. And add to that the fact that they are fair, equitable, knowledgeable and just all around great guys ... I will keep buying Saabs until the cows come home. I can not say enough good things about this shop and how the owners conduct business. I so wish all dealings in life could be as clean and equitable as it is with these fellas ... but if it was, I guess I wouldn't appreciate their demeanor so much. Got a problem with a Saab or Volvo, this is the place to take it. Period.
worse place to go to fix your car ...keep charging you to go there and the car still not fix ..keep changing parts till find the problem ,,,
I recently took my car in because I was having car starting issues. David let me know he should test the starter before replacing it because they are pricey. Found out it was a bad battery. Out of about twenty mechanics I've gone to I have only three that I trust and he is one of them. Straight forward, gets the job done correctly, and prices reasonably.
I've been going to them for over 2 years, and I would not go anywhere else. I love this place they do excellent work! Ask for Jerry or Mark tell em Crystal sent cha!
This place is the worst car wont run for 1 day they dont fix your car they just take your money the owner name is hose he parks his truck in front while hes never their hes down at manchester car wash meeting his mistress at the front desk
Lanny and Sylvia Thomas, owners of Lanny's Hobby Shop are thieves and crooks! They have had the money to repair my car for a year and never let me know. When I discovered they'd received a check AND CASHED IT WITHOUT MY KNOWLEDGE a year ago, I called them to get the money as I no longer wanted them to repair my car. Sylvia, Lanny's wife told me they were going to keep $656.00 of the $1656.00 they received to repair my car for taxes!!!! They were instructed to send a check back to my insurance company and have not done so. They are greedy, unscrupulous crooks. Do NOT take your car there to be repaired. They are crooks!
Every repair I had done led to another problem and another huge bill.I finally exploded when I went back for another thing he'd 'overlooked' and his mechanic revealed I had a huge oil leak from the oil pan right after he'd had my car up on his hoist to replace my rear main seal. Again he wanted me to come back, but refused to tell me what it would cost to fix! He often asked to be paid in cash. Don't go! You'll end up paying thousands of dollars for repairs that never end!
This shop is one of the best they are very fair when it comes to pricing very reasonable. There new website is very handy they have great coupons for any automobile great place highly recommend this repair shop.
