I came into Car Nerds to get a synthetic oil change and also to have my car inspected since my check tire light was on and had obviously thrown me into a panic, because replacing a tire is the last thing my wallet needs. I called around to the closest auto repair shops to my work to get estimates on my Hyundai Tucson. I'm so happy I didn't take my car into the closest shop next to me where some shmuck wanted to charge me upwards of $115! I only paid around $50 dollars for the oil change at Car Nerds and they assured me my tires were fine, only need a bit more air pressure which they took care of. It is so refreshing to find an auto repair shop that didn't try to scam me, which I get a lot as a young female (sad society). My family owns and operates a business just like theirs back home on the East Coast., so I know first hand what a fair price looks like and what doesn't. Also happy that I didn't have to mention this to the owner to "bully" him into being fair like I have sadly had to do at other places. The place was very clean, super friendly staff, and very accommodating of my needs!
I took my car in this morning for regular maintenance. Usually I go to the dealer and they tell me that I need an engine flush, oil upgrade, and a million other extraneous services in addition to the oil change. Rony was a nice change of pace - he didn't try to upsell me. They changed a few filters and didn't charge any extra labor for it. He is clearly trying to offer a different kind of customer experience than the fear tactics used by other repair shops, and I really appreciate that. Nice guy, nice shop. I will definitely go back.
Car Nerds is the best. Once you've experienced the awesome service at this shop, you'll immediately know why their ratings on Yelp and other sites are so great. Rony is very understanding of a vehicle's needs and promptly sets expectations from the very beginning.All the guys here are very receptive to questions/concerns, especially if (like in my case) you are looking for more detailed information about a problem or inquiring about preventative maintenance. Also, if you're in a rush, be sure to set up an appointment and they will take care of you when you get there.It's a serious relief to know I have a place to take my ride as long as I'm in the neighborhood.
Third time here, and you know that feeling when you know you won't get ripped off, when the work you came to have done will be done, when you are a valued customer and your requests are being heard? You know that feeling? Well it's abundant here. Rony is a big Boss and he'll take care of you. But if abuse is your thing I have a guy.
Carnerds is awesome. After my local jeep dealer shut down i was having trouble finding anyone I trusted. Not any more. Carnerds is trustworthy and super good at what they do. Right on.
These guys are so nice and honest I would recommend them to anyone. They have helped me twice free of charge when the other places on pico were trying to rip me off by charging hundreds of dollars. I got yelp just because I wanted to give these guys an amazing review!
Awesome service! I brought my Jetta in because I scratched the bumper and was looking for a paint touch-up before I sell it. They took a look and let me know they scratch would probably buff out, and did it for me for free! I was surprised and impressed by their honest service and plan to take my vehicles to them in the future for larger repairs.
Professional and a good value. They made me a priority when I came in for service. I needed to change my transmission fluid and the owner Rony didn't give me the dreaded "we also found..." for anything else. He seemed trustworthy, knowledgeable and gave the same attention and great service to everyone I saw while I was there. He gave my car a good once over, changed the fluid and was out. I will be back as I need more work done and later.
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.
