Max is great. I got to know him through a colleague. He is very straight forward and honest about the condition of your car. I had to bring in my first car that I bought at a rip-off used car dealer called Americar Enterprises in Mar Vista, because it was in such critical condition that it needed so much fixing - I negotiated with the shady owner of Americar Enterprises to trade-in with some other cars in their inventory, and took them to Max for inspection. Apparently all the cars I brought to him were almost-lemon cars, but Max didn't charge me for the inspections. I should have brought the first car to him in the first place, but I was in such a rush and didn't have time - until I noticed all the problems about the car. I decided to fix the car so that at least it will run and work fine so that I can sell it, and decided to buy a different car from a private seller on craigslist. Of course, I took the car to Max and he inspected the car - again for no charge. What's funny is that the seller who came with me to Max's place was very cautious about taking a car to a mechanic for inspection - because although he was very confident about the condition of his car, he had bad experiences with mechanics ruining his car when inspecting it. But after having met Max and known his professional attitude that day, he was trusting him like I did. Even saying ""My sister recently got ripped off by some crazy mechanics - but I'm going to tell her to come here!!""
Pros: Honest, Fast work, Sincere Attitude
