I have taken my Audi Q3 here as well as my mom's Buick Encore. Both for scheduled maintenance, oil change, and check engine light diagnostics and fixing of the issue. Dave, Mike, and the entire team here are great. Very transparent from the start and throughout the process with you. Fair pricing as well. It is so nice having a local garage that understands not only how to maintain & fix your vehicle, but someone that will show you exactly the issue under the hood and explain how they are working through it. So why spend more at the dealership for them to up-charge and just show you on paper what they did?Services: Transmission

This "Service Station" is run by unskilled grease monkeys, you are asking for trouble if you need any type of mechanical service, other than air in your tires or water in your thermos. They talk that they can service any car and repair any component, it is only talk! They broke parts and used zero ties to place them back! Oh there's more, so much more... your car is important, then take in to a RELIABLE dealership, not a GAS STATION!

Smog and repair start at 8 AM, not 7 AM as listed on their website.

The cashier doesn't help you at all he just stares at you. He was a bald white guy. Don't recommend coming here. Definitely not 24 hrs.

The gas pump NEVER work properly. I can't comment on the mechanics, this review is for the terrible gas pumps that are at the station.

Not 24 hours. Guy inside stuffing his face instead of helping customers. Was here at 5AM trying to get a bag of ice.

It's rare that I'll write a review about something as mundane as an oil change service but the service and overall experience was so good, I really felt like these folks deserved it.

Writing a review on behalf of the auto shop.. Dave and his staff are absolutely incredible! Growing up around an auto shop i know how the industry is so im always a bit skeptical. I'm pretty sure i tell every single person i come in contact with about Dave and the shop. He's purely there to help, no B.S, no gauged prices, honest and hard working. I swear by him and his staff and do not trust any one else.

Dave, the manager at this Chevron service station completely altered how I viewed auto repair shops / auto body shops. He's incredibly knowledgeable, honest and affable. An absolute pleasure to do business with.

Dave, the manager at this Chevron service station completely altered how I viewed auto repair shops / auto body shops. He's incredibly knowledgeable, honest and affable. An absolute pleasure to do business with. One of our cars needed minor body work and a paint job. We happened to stop in for gas and noticed that they do body work there -- the result was great (Don was amazing). The experience was so easy and high quality that we brought another of our cars, a "vintage" sedan that needed special handling for mechanical repairs (work-in-progress). Each interaction has been friendly and professional with close attention to detail at a fair price. My fiancée and I have become enthusiastic patrons of Dave and his team.

My car is falling apart and I can't afford to fix it or fill up the gas tank right now. So normally I don't drive it. Yesterday though, I had a job interview in Newport Beach. I didn't want to take the bus because I didn't want to show up to my interview drenched in sweat, as it was a hot day. After my interview was over I went to drive home to Irvine but my car started stalling and I realized I wouldn't be able to make it home. So I pulled over into the closest gas station, which happened to be this Chevron. I had also lost my wallet the night before, and even though I only had a few bucks in there, I had no card, cash, or even ID to where I'd be able to go to the bank. As you can probably tell by now, I've been having a rough past couple months. I try to stay positive though and spread as much love and positivity to as many people as I can. I'm getting to the point soon I promise! So I happened to find a single dollar in my car so I took it inside and asked the cashier to put a dollar on my tank, as I laughed embarrassedly and tried to explain to her that I had lost my wallet. So I went and filled up a dollars worth of gas.. it was about .2 of a gallon.. I realized that wasn't going to do it. So I sat in my car stressing over what I was going to do. I really really didn't want to ask people for money but I honestly didn't know what else to do and if I were in a situation where I could help someone I would want them to ask me. So I went up to this grumpy looking old man who was parked at the pump next to me (this was my first mistake. This guy looked like he'd never smiled in his life) and just for some context, not that it should matter but just in case it does, I'm a mild mannered petite female who was coming back from a job interview (so I was wearing a nice blouse, slacks and heals.) My point is that there is absolutely nothing intimidating about me. I was also extremely embarrassed and nervous to be asking anyone for money. So I slowly walked over to the pumps and VERY politely said "excuse me sir, I'm so sorry to bother you. Do you have a dollar you can spare for gas?" He wouldn't even look at me or acknowledge me so I just put my head down and walked away and I thought that was that. I definitely wasn't going to ask anyone else after that. A few minutes later, Dave, who I believe manages the auto shop, walked over to me. He told me that a customer has complained that I was asking people for money and that I can't be doing that there. I could tell he felt bad but he was just doing his job. I explained my situation to him, and he was sympathetic, he said just don't ask anyone else, not that I was planning to lol. A few minutes go by and Dave walks back up to my car and tells me that he made $8 in tips that day and he was going to put it into my gas tank. Now I don't know if any of you have had a day/week/month where everything seems to be going wrong and then one person shows you this act of kindness and it just makes you break down into tears. It was as if all the hard work I've been putting in, all the love and positivity I give out to others and to the universe, is not for nothing. It was almost like a glimmer of hope or a sign from the universe that says "it's going to be okay. I got you." $8 might not sound like a lot of money but it was more than just $8 to me at that moment. And that just goes to show you, Dave could have spent that $8 on a coffee, but when he decided to give it to me, he changed my life a little bit in that moment. I've always given money to the homeless when I can. Because even if I only have a dollar left to my name, at least I have a place to sleep and food to eat and some people don't. I hope Dave reads this. The best way I could think about repaying your kindness is by first writing this review and I also want you to know that I will pay it forward. It's funny how i

I was in desperate need of a smog check for my car. These guys took my car in immediately and before charging me for a smog that would fail they checked to see the monitors had been reset before conducting the smog. I've been to another place that conducted a smog knowing it was going to fail and they still did it and charged me $70! These guys were super friendly and informative, but above all they were honest. I would come back here in heartbeat if needed another smog check again. Highly recommend this place.

Corona del mar chevron has expensive gas That's unbelievable and dirty restrooms which is disgusting and shows they don't take care of their establishments. And I think theirs roaches all on the counter where the food is. I would t want to return. This place wasn't a good experience.

If you need to get your car fixed, this is the place to go. They're honest and very kind. I've been going to this Chevron for 2 years now and for as long as I live in CDM, I won't go anywhere else. Dave and Shannon are the best!!
