I've been taking my cars to Cory Motors for the last ten years and have never been disappointed by their work. They are more expensive than the drive through oil change places but they check everything, tell me what to expect at the next service, help me work out what is worth fixing and in what time frame, and they are just generally nice guys. They don't talk down to women, which is such a relief as I find most mechanics are patronizing. I've even continued to take my car there now that I live in Ojai. In my experience they are reliable, trustworthy, and respectful mechanics who know what they're doing and are worth every penny they charge.
Pros: Friendliness and honesty
Cons: They're very popular so you need to book ahead
