A great repair shop with an honest proprieter. I've taken my car in *convinced* that this that and the other thing was broken (in fact another mechanic told me as much), and instead of just cashing in and doing the repair, Avo checked the car out, demonstrated to me empirically that there was in fact not a problem, and sent me on my merry way. Great service for regular maintenance (oil changes, smog checks, brake jobs, etc.); always friendly and informative. The only knock against the place is thatsometimes you have to wait a couple of days to get an appointment, but that seems a relatively small price to pay for reliable service.
