Ali is the most honest auto mechanic I know. I always go to him whenever I need an oil change, and the price is always right. I once went to EZ Lube and paid three times what he charges for an oil change on my Honda Civic.
I've gotten my brakes done here, and am extremely happy with them and haven't had any problems. I once took my car in because it was vibrating when I braked, and one of Ali's employees did something with my rotors (sorry, I'm not much of a car person) and didn't even charge me. Of course, part of this might have something to do with the fact that my old job refers a lot of business to Ali's shop, but still . . .
Another time I got an oil change and asked for a tire rotation. Ali told me that he couldn't rotate my tires since they really needed to be replaced. He said I could buy tires from him and have him install it, but advised it would be cheaper (!!) to just go to Costco.
Just this past weekend I took my car in for another oil change. Since my car has almost 50k miles on it, I asked Ali if there was any special services I needed to have done to it. Instead of taking advantage of my ignorance, he told me to bring my car back at 60k miles for the maintenance. I love Ali! Even though Burbank really isn't near me at all, I'll still keep going back to him.
