My family and I have been going to Brian since I started driving back in the late 90s, he is super helpful and gives great service! If anything is wrong with my car I always go to his shop. He always gives good and fast service at an affordable price.

My family has used Brian for over 20 years. He is very accommodating about drop off and pick ups and does great work. However, my last experience was questionable. After getting a smog check, I told him I heard a "clunking" sound. He said it was "rust on the muffler". Though I don't know much about cars, that made no sense. So I brought it back and he found that the control arm needed replacing. After the repair, he asked me to drive it around and told me that the persistent rattle I heard was "plastic". The rattle/clunking got louder. I took it to the dealership and they found that the control arm replacement was adequately done. However, the sway bar end links were worn and needed replacing along with the bushings. I'll continue to use Brian for oil changes and small repairs, but unsure if I will trust him for larger problems. I don't know much about cars and need to trust the mechanic.

I needed an oil change ASAP and was referred to Brian's Automotive from a shop close to my home in Monrovia. When I called, the owner picked up and immediately gave me the pricing over the phone. He also told me that he could get it done immediately if I made it to the shop within 30 minutes. They definitely delivered. I was in and out in under 45 minutes. That's pretty speedy considering the amount of cars they were working on. It was also only $59 for synthetic oil. He also didn't try to upsell on services or parts, which I appreciated. Being a female, I have felt targeted before by other shops. Brian reminded me of an uncle that you can trust... that also likes to crack dad jokes. Hilar! Will definitely be returning for future car needs.

Good experience getting my car repaired here. Recently needed a new alternator and Brian was able to replace it within a few hours. It's nice to find a reliable, trustworthy mechanic who doesn't gouge customers.

Very reasonable and efficient Auto a/c was out and needed oil change. In 2 days we had an appointment and car was fixed. Cost very reasonable. Will definitely return for car maintenance

I took my car in to get my major maintenance done like the timing belt, water pump, spark plugs…..etc. It ran and drove fine before taking it in. When I picked up my vehicle the check engine light was on and it had a mis fire. Brian told me to drive it around and it should go away. I drove it for 2 weeks and it never went away. I took it back and he said he will take care of it. It took over a month to get my vehicle back and it still had the mis fire issue. During this wait time Brian assured me he was working on it, but after making a few visits to see the progress the vehicle never was worked on and it sat in the same spot for a month. He finally said he found the problem, but I guess not because the check engine and the mis fire came back a day later. When I asked when can I bring my vehicle back he told me to bring it by, but it will not be worked on until 2 weeks. I know it will be longer because Brian likes to give me the run around and likes to lie. I will never go to this guy again his work ethic and service to customers is just horrible. On top of my experience my sister needed work done on her suv because a check engine light……guess what when he said it was fixed the check engine light came back on when we left his shop. We took it home and we hooked it up to a check engine light diagnostic and when we told Brian what it was. His answer was to go to a junk yard and find the part we needed and bring it to him. Man oh man If I could leave no stars I would because this type of service is unacceptable.Services: Tuning

The first honest car repair I've experience. Repaired out little mini van in less time, less money. I highly recommend you try it.

Brian's Auto Shop was hands down the BEST mechanic shop I went to yesterday morning. I was heading to work in the morning and my car was giving me issues to the point that AAA had to tow my car to the shop, Brian's shop was open early at 8 a.m. which was one of the best parts. When I arrived I was greeted by the owner Brian himself, he was very personable and professional, he fixed my car in a couple of hours and now my car drives smoothly, I left with convenience that I picked the right mechanic shop Thank you Brian for your hard work, I'll definitely be back.

How often can you put the word honest and fair in front of automechanic. This is one of the rare ones you can go to and he will take you behind the curtain and show you why you need something done and explain it to you.Dealerships will charge you an arm and a leg for repairs and maintenance. His prices will make you wonder why you havent been going to him in the first place.Yes, he is always busy, and there's a reason why!
