I was referred to ECC by my friend/mechanic who was very familiar with their work. My Audi A4 had a large scratches and a few bumps on the back and front bumpers, due to a valet accident (this is why you should SELF PARK). I'm really familiar with body shops (blame my wife for that one) and took my car to the body shop I always use, off of Lankershim Blvd. He said he was really busy and wouldn't be able to work on my car for a couple days, so I took my car to about 6 different body shops, both premium- and lower-tier. Relative to all 6 different body shops I got quotes from, ECC was the lowest by about a hundred dollars. They ordered me a new, authentic pair of bumpers and painted them as well. Their quality of work was amazing, it's like my car came right out of the dealer's lot when I bought it in 2011. They actually had my car done a day earlier than quoted, which is major points in my book. Also, they provided me with a courtesy shuttle to/from my house all the way in Sherman Oaks. Although my other body shop may be a little disappointed, I am going to be giving all of my new business to ECC and would highly recommend everyone else to do the same.
I have been using Bussards automotive to service and repair all my vehicles for over 20 years now. It started with an old 1969 Chev that I relied upon to help produce an income. It kept breaking down. I'd have it fixed by "cheap" mechanics only to have the same problem a few weeks later. A friend told me about Bussards. Gary discovered the problem and fixed it right the first time. Since then I have grown my business to over 10 vehicles and Bussards services them all. I buy brand new vehicles now and will only take them to Bussards for their service and maintenance requirements. I can trust Bussards implicitly. Even my friends, family and employees use Bussards because they see the value in expert trustworthy service. I have many examples of their excellent service and unparalleled expertise but let me simply say this. If you are looking for a mechanic you can trust, you will find that trust in Bussards Automotive. Unless you are an experienced, highly trained mechanic yourself, you need to have a competent, trustworthy mechanical service. Bussards is that service. They will look after you.
I don't understand why some reviews are so negative. My recent experience went above and beyond any expectations I might have had. About a month ago, during my service visit I was informed that a particular part was worn out causing a leak and needed to be replaced FOR MY SAFETY. I was a little skeptical at first and asked if I could see the leak and part with my own eyes. My Service adviser made arrangements with the Service Manger to allow me into the shop area and the technician lifted the car up so I could see what they were talking about. Everything was exactly as they were telling me. I was told it would take 3-days to order and get the part and complete the repair and that they would put me in a loan car at no cost to me while my car was with them. And that was exactly what they did... I love this dealership, employees are very helpful and sure will recommend.
I'm new to L.A. The engine on my 2011 Ford Focus was making a strange noise. I found ACE online and brought my car in. Tony, the owner, looked really busy, but he stopped what he was doing and walked up to greet me with a big smile and a handshake. Really nice shop, too. Clean and spacious. He asked me what the problem was and then checked under the hood. He explained the problem and had it fixed fast. Really fair price, less than I was expecting. Also, he noticed the air pressure on two of my tires was low and he filled them up for free! Great service, nice guy, great price. Tony is my new L.A. Car guy.
I normally buy from this place, but for the first time I have called, a man answered and seemed to be unhappy. I asked for a bed side for me Mazda B2200. He said "No." I wasn't sure that I was calling the same place as before. So I wasn't surprised if he were to say that this was an auto parts store as in oil, filter, spark plug,... kind of place. So I said "Oh, this isn't an auto body replacement store?" He hung up on me. I have bought from here replacement parts? RUDE> why call back, I was going to buy more parts. I will buy from another company.
ALPINE DID A GREAT JOB!!!!! I meet Tony, A very nice guy he took great care of my 750iL every where esle wanted big money inorder to repair my car. Tony saved me over 50% what ervery where esle was charging me. They did such a great job I also took my Range Rover turned out It needed a new engine! can you belive it they had my Range running like new in less then a week and I saved big 50% again. I am very happy with Alpine Tony and Steve are very trustful and willing to help. I recommed them, tell tem I sent you.
The 10 percent discount does not exist complete lie 100% you tell the guy a part you need and he tells a price he makes up off the back of his head plus tax some of these parts prices are higher than auto zone or o Riley new. And the parts are from salvage cars if you want to get ripped off go there if not just go to pick a part or buy the part new for like 5 or ten dollars more I really would not go back because I feel I got ripped off and paid way too much for used parts
These guys are attentive. I drove away after a routine oil change but then heard a faint strange noise. I went back and one of the technicians drove around the block with me and didn't hear anything but then opened the hood and found something loose inside and fixed it right away. He wanted to be sure everything was in good shape. After just a few services I now have a rewards card and they have repaired two tires for free! I like this place.
I had my car problem and end up changing the engine every where i did go they code me 3400 dollars and thats include part and labor with 6 months warranty ,i came up cross Alpine auto and the change my engine and made my car working very good i am happy with their work and top of that it cost my 35% less than i expected and with 2 years warranty since then i drive my car and had no problem ,they are friendly and honest thanks Alpine.
Great bunch of guys, helped me with my issues on my BMW E66 7 Series. I had an electrical issue which no mechanic shop was able to figure out. Finally Alpine got refereed and did the job in good speed of time. It was nightmare driving that car with the problem it was having. Car kept shutting off, even on the freeway, glad i found Alpine. Plus they got a junkyard as well which helped the repairs go faster.
