Awesome service! – They were friendly fast and informative, I'm taking my car here from now on.
Westside automotive repair for multiple car models. – Located at the corner of 14th Street and Pico, this gated auto repair shop caters to just about any vehicle brand around. Offering a full line of automotive parts and supplies for models ranging from Audi to Saturn, services range from basic oil changes to more detailed work and inspections. The straightforward, approachable staff makes the experience as painless as possible and all serviced vehicles get a free car wash. Customers can also take advantage of the complimentary transportation for more time-consuming repairs--the shuttle goes as far east as UCLA, as far west as Pacific Palisades and as far south as Marina Del Rey.
best mechanic ive ever been to – Don't go anywhere else if you're even remotely close to this place. I've never trusted mechanics but i trust these guys and so do my other two friends who use them. They tell you when work *doesnt* need to be done, they adjusted belts for me for free, and today they found that my car didnt need to do any work and it came back washed and vacuumed at no request and no charge. Friendly guys too. A+++
Honest Mechanics – I found the guys at More Joy to be honest, efficient, and inexpensive. I don't think there can be a higher compliment about an Auto Mechanic than that.

Excellent, honest mechanics – I was very happy to find More Joy Auto. They are trustworthy and honest: they will lay out for you exactly which repairs you need to do, what they will cost, and what issues or maintenance may be coming up in the future but aren't worth spending the money on now. They never push you to make repairs, but give you all the information you need to make your own choices.
Also, they do an extremely quick turn-around. Their standard is to return the car to you within one or two days. Once, when they were unable to do that due to an ordered part being late, they offered me a free rental car for several days (without me asking). The staff is very friendly and recognizes you when you come in, and they always give your car back washed and shiny.
As for the quality of the repairs? They stand up favorably to going to your dealership ? in fact, they're better. My car had a serious problem with oil usage, was running dry every three weeks, and for years Volkswagen's own mechanics told me that that's the way my model operates, that the only possible fix would be to replace the whole engine, and that the new engine would likely be just as bad. I accepted this. The first time I took my car to More Joy, for something unrelated, they said, "By the way, did you know your car has a terrible oil leak?" Without my even mentioning the oil problem, they found the oil leak Volkswagen couldn't find, and they fixed it.
The price of repairs isn't the cheapest. I'd call the costs medium-level ? you pay more than you would at a rock-bottom place, but less than you would at the dealership, and the service is comparable (if not actually better) than the dealership. Definitely worth it for the quality of service.
