Jack and the staff at North Hollywood Auto Repair have been my mechanics for about 10 years now, and even after a couple of accidents and years of long commutes over the hill, my 12 year old car is still in very good shape because of these guys. As noted, they are a little bit on the expensive side, but when it comes to car repair, I feel like you get what you pay for, you know? I'd rather pay a bit more and feel secure that it has been done right the first time. That said, they are really good about explaining in detail what they are doing, getting permission before they do it, and they always tell me if there is something that can wait (which my checkbook appreciates). Dependable, honest, professional, and good mechanics.
