    Incredible service!  Rony is extremely knowledgeable, friendly and competent.  After first finding out the outrageous price I would be charged at the dealership, I asked friends to recommend a shop.  Rony was very highly recommended and he did not disappoint.  He explained what the service would entail and gave me a very competitive price.  He even told me about a coupon that I could use because I'm a Santa Monica resident.  The people working at Car Nerds are certified and used to work at dealerships, so they really know their stuff.  The service was performed on my car and it was ready at the estimated time I had been given.  The customer service I was given by everyone at the shop was amazing.  I highly recommend this place and have told all my friends about it.

    Found my car guy!  Amazing service, honest, decent prices.   A trust worthy place to have your car serviced at.  Marlon (Rony) the owner a down to earth kinda guy who keeps his word 100% and does not bs around.   I highly recommend CarNerds.  You won't go wrong here.

    I was quite impressed with the attention giving to me while I had to hurry thru the service during my lunch break. Thanks for giving me priority! I will be back for the next service and have already recommended you to my colleagues!

    Have only been here once so far, by a recommendation, and was not disappointed.  The nerds are fast, honest and super nice.  Not like the big chains which don't really care about customers and don't do the job they are paid for.  I felt this place really cares about making a good impression and have returning customers.  They were very helpful!

    Awesome!! Friendly and fast. I used them for an Uber inspection. They work on all types of hybrids. See Ronny before you go any place else. You'll be happy you did.

    These guys are awesome! My car stalled out on me and this was the first place I found in a time of desperation. Rony set me up no problem and got me a deal on a rental at enterprise for like $25 a day. Since I had some complications and inconvenience (they had to keep my car a day longer than they thought) Rony took $25 off my bill for the rental, and gave me a $200 discount and washed my car for FREE. I told them even though it's 20 minutes away from my house, they earned a regular customer. I was super pleased with their customer service and have already recommended them to everyone I know, just ask for Rony :D

    Car Nerds is the best kept secret in town when it comes to car repairs! They replaced my lights for a fraction of the cost it would have been anywhere else. Excellent customer service and a nice waiting area for the shortest wait ever!

    I first met Rony when I took my Prius to SM Toyota,  I thought he was so good, I started taking my Lexus to him.  Then Rony transferred to Manhattan Beach Toyota.  I followed him there, because I trust him so much.  This is important to me as I don't want to be taken advantage of with my limited knowledge of cars.  Finally Rony opened his own place, Car Nerds, and, of course, I started going there.  Car Nerds is the best.  You can't beat the mechanics, the service and the cost.  Rony Castillo's Car Nerds is the only place to take your car to be serviced.  They go above and beyond...
