Servicing Irvine Area

5

I heard about THE auto shop when they extended an offer to the employees at my firm for discounts on oil changes and labor. Our office is just a couple blocks away at the Irvine Spectrum. Each time I have gone I have been graced with timely service, including shuttle drop offs and pick ups. They have never tried to rip me off and have only been honest about what I do and do not need.I purchased a 2006 Scion TC with 70K and brought it in for a service shortly after purchase and they took a look at the car on a courtesy inspection and suggested a couple of items I could have done, but recommended as not necessary as my car was in good condition. The fact that I am not at all knowledgable about cars made me feel comfortable that I was not getting myself into something I did not need.I would recommend if you want quick oil change or service with good people, especially if you live or work near the Spectrum. Great place to drop off in the morning and pick up at lunch or after work. I will be going back.

Awesome shop - explained everything going on. Diagnosed my tire problem even a straight up tire shop couldn't do. They offer shuttle service, loaners, Wi-Fi in their nice waiting area, free coffee, just a really customer service based place.Highly recommend to anyone. Good shops are hard to find these days, and this is definitely one of them.

Excellent service, friendly staff and got my car all fixed up. I had to have my car towed in but they were able to accommodate on the short notice. My car is an ML500 and they have a certified Mercedes Benz technician on staff. There's free water and coffee and a small waiting room with free wifi. (Or you can just stare at the aquarium.) It's close by plenty of restaurants in case you don't have a spare car and you need to wait for it. Will definitely be taking our cars back to this place.

Great service. Comfortable and inviting waiting area with everything from an exotic fish tank to coffee and a plethora of magazines to suit most interests. Everyone is very friendly and accommodating. Reasonably priced. I recommend highly. Pete

Customer service is fabulous. Work was done well. Costs are very competitive. I will definitely be taking my car in again to remedy some more deferred maintenance.

It's nice to find an honest mechanic shop in Irvine. I came here about a month ago after getting a flat tire to see if anything could be done about it. Unfortunately, the tire was beyond repair, but the staff gave me a variety of options for a pair of replacement tires and helped me make an informed decision. After making my choice and deciding to get the new tires aligned, I left the car to get repaired. They offer a 2 year/24,000 mile warranty on all labor so it seemed like a great place to get it done.After driving the car for a few weeks, I noticed the car began to pull to the right (probably due to running over something on the freeway). I took the car back to THE auto shop to have them look at it and they gladly fixed the alignment, free of charge. The manager Sam introduced himself to me and said that if the alignment wasn't up to my expectations, to bring it back and they would happily make it as perfect as possible. I was blown away by their customer service and will gladly take my car back in for any future necessary maintenance.Although I didn't use it, they also offer a shuttle service anywhere within 10 miles of the shop so you aren't stuck there for hours if you don't have another ride. I'm a loyal customer of THE auto shop and would highly recommend them to anyone I know that needs their car serviced.

stopped in for the first time on a Friday evening thinking i would have to wait a while, however I was in and out in 30 minute tops! I immediately noticed how clean and modern the waiting/front area is. The front desk was super friendly, helpful and nothing but smiles. After the work is complete, the technician sits down with you and goes over in detail everything that was completed along with anything they may recommend to be serviced in the future. i'll definitely be servicing my car at 'THE auto shop" from here on out.

There is a reason everyone is giving this auto shop 5 perfect stars! I have visited many other shops in the past and this one is by far the best. First of all, they actually have females working the desk....which may not seem impressive at first but they surprisingly know a lot about cars and have wonderful personalities that make customers feel welcome. The shop itself is in great condition...the lounge area has a large fish tank, free WiFi, a coffee/water station, and a phone charging station. The prices are beyond reasonable and they have really made a point to keep prices low and true to what customers should really be playing instead of inflating prices! I own a European car that is very high maintenance and they were very honest with me about prices. I also like that they are open until 6pm. Great location and fairly easy to find. Trust all of these great reviews and take your car here...next thing you know, you're on your phone in their lounge typing up a 5 star review on yelp like I am now!

I loved this place. I found it thanks to living social. Everyone was so nice as soon as I walked in. I'm dropping my car dealership and making this my primary car service shop.They offered me and my daughter water and coffee, no other spot had done that , so kudos. Good prices, great service, I totally recommend it to everyone. Another cool thing is that they have little stations with phone chargers, one for each phone out there. My daughter fell in love with the fish tank there, it had cool fish. Overall, it was a great experience.
