A+ Japanese Auto Repair, Inc.
AAA towed my car here when my starter of my car stopped working - the office was pretty empty and they were receptive to taking another car in the middle of a work day lol, which was very nice of him. I dealt with Louis, who is the most enthusiastic mechanic I've ever met. He was super personable and friendly, and really adamant about getting my car taken care of. I gave him a bit of my own troubleshooting and he was able to figure that I was in the right ball park. He was able to order the part, and get it installed all in a days work. HE also ubered me home and back to the shop while they were working! How awesome is that!! The ONLY reason I took off a star is price - while they are great, and he even gave me the AAA discount, it was still roughly double what I would figure the part + labor would cost at my old shop in the South Bay. I offered to get the part myself, since Autozone said they had it in stock - I know it was a subpar quality part, but I wasn't planning to keep the vehicle indefinitely, its already older. He quickly said that policy is that they actually don't work with parts that are not directly from the shop. Interesting policy; some places will take it if you've already purchased it. And in the effort to get my car back asap, I was willing to do that for him, since he hinted it might take longer than just a day to get it in. That said, I'd probably be back - he works on Japanese cars (duh) and my bf and I both have foreign cars - Loius is definitely knowledgable and I trust that he wont do extraneous work on my vehicle. I guess the cost of labor comes at that price :) He texts, he called a few days later to make sure everything was still running smoothly - I suck at calling and texting back, but hopefully he sees this! Thanks again for everything, Louis!
