Drive Web Demo truck and car repair reviews

Amazing guest service! Erika talked with us over the phone and helped us reschedule an apt when they were too busy. David was friendly, funny, and professional every time we spoke with him. He took time to drop us off at home so we would not have to wait around the shop. We really appreciated that. David even checked my spare tire, and refilled it with air when he saw it was flat. He saved me from a future crisis! I never felt pressured to fix/replace anything that wasn't nessisary. Fair prices for the time they work on your vehicle. Erika and David both took time to answer my general questions about cars as well.  My expectations were blown away with professional and friendly service. Thanks guys!

Awesome customer service. I knew I needed some work done so I brought it in. They checked it out for free, didn't recommend anything I didn't need. Pinky told me what I needed to have done, what I could have done, and what I could wait on.  Felt like he was being honest.  No pressure from Evan, the owner, told me to call when I was ready. Competitive quote, using quality parts. Half the price I was quoted at a chain brake place and less than dealer. When i brought it in, it was done ahead of schedule.

I have taken my vehicle here twice so far. I've had my fiance take hers in once. They're always very courteous. The work is done in a timely manner. They charge very reasonable rates for quality work. And, perhaps most importantly, they're honest; a quality which is becoming harder and harder to find in the auto repair industry. I highly recommend.

Great, knowledgeable expertise. I always go here when I have car trouble.

— Goolgle User

Always excellent friendly service. Even on a short notice drop off they were able to quickly repair our vehicle and get us safely back on the road. I highly recommend their services.

— Goolgle User

Fast and thorough service. Competitive prices. Honest. What else can you ask for?

— Yelp User

Wonderful fast efficient service at a reasonable price. I had limited time and they were gracious enough to have two guys work on my car so I could be on time for an appointment! My brakes are fixed! I highly recommend them

— Yelp User

I drove in there yesterday worried, and "Pinky" assured me that they would take care of me.  I left my car there at 8am and I knew they were very busy that morning with several appointments set-up already.  I got a phone call at 12:30 telling me they were done and "sorry it took so long"...I was floored.  They are AMAZING.  The price was fair, and the customer service was great.  I told him about several little things I thought might have a problem and instead of them gouging me, he looked, topped of fluids and assured me things were OK.  I was expecting BIG problems, but he fixed what needed fixing. HONEST American family business.

I've been taking my autos here for almost 20 years and have always received outstanding service a business one can trust.

I really appreciate that they did a great job at an affordable price. As a woman, I don't know much about brakes and when both my lights on the dashboard  came on telling me I had a problem I needed to rely on an expert to fix the issue. I could tell my braking ability was about half what it was so I had a problem I couldn't ignore. Now there are no more strange noises and it works great! They showed me the parts that needed to be replaced because they had broken. I will definitely recommend them and go back again when I need brake work done.

Arrived about 9AM on a Monday, after a short wait got the bad news about what needed to be done and I thought this is going to be 2 days minimum without a vehicle. Well I was then given the good news "We'll have it done by 4:30" I almost fainted. Then they took me home, again I was very impressed. Well I thought I'd get a call later telling me it would take a little longer to finish, WRONG they called at 4:30 and said OKAY It's ready...Amazing. Evan the owner and Pinky the mechanic are just great people, I'm so happy I went there.  I wish I could give them 10 Stars. I only wish they did tune ups.

— Yelp User

 I was very satisfied with the quality of work performed on my vehicle. The  professionalism and  expertise was top notch. I highly  recommend  them to my family and friends.

Erika's costumer service is outstanding, it was my first visit to the shop (4/24) & she treated me like family. She deserves a bonus!  Sincerely, George

I've been here twice now and will continue to go back. The staff is knowledgeable and will go out of their way to accommodate your schedule. The prices seem fair as well.

Good service, fair price, friendly staff they won't do you wrong

I've been an occasional customer here since 1988.  And other people I know patronized this place well before that.  It's pretty much a San Pedro institution.   It was taken over by a younger guy a few years ago who has deep ties in San Pedro's automotive community and he's done it all right.  All the old timers I know in town speak highly of this place.  All the mechanics seem very good.  The work is done right.  The prices seem fair.  You can tell these guys care about doing a quality job.  If you're not working on your own car, it can sometimes be a pain to find somebody good.  You don't have to worry if you take your car in here.   These days, Harbor Brake does more than "just brakes" and alignments.  They do suspensions and general vehicle repairs as well.

Came in after running over something on the freeway and my car started sounding different. Took it in the next morning and within 20 minutes found out that a piece of metal had punctured a hole in my exhaust.  I immediately knew the reviews were right  about this place when I pulled in and the mechanic didn't just drive my car onto the lift but took it around the block first. After a thorough inspection he brought me over and explained the situation. Although he couldn't fix it, he sent me to a muffler shop down the street who could do the repairs.  Oh and all of this happened on a Saturday and the inspection was free of charge. The worst part was that I don't live in San Pedro so I can't have them as my permanent auto shop. So anyone who does, should definitely take advantage of the great prices, helpful staff, and amazingly efficient service!

They put on new brakes and rotors (I knew both were in bad shape before I went there) and they did it in just a few hours.  Luckily I didn't even need an appointment but I would recommend getting one because they are really busy for a reason - everyone who knows trusts this shop.  They were recommended to me by my transmission shop (family friend).  Just back after a 12 hour drive and the brakes and rotors are perfect!

— Yelp User

It's hard to believe that there is not only a business that continues to rack up the positive 4 and 5 star ratings from customers but add the fact that this is a car mechanic shop and you've got frikin' amazing! My friend recommended them to me and I admit, I was hesitant. No longer. I took my car in yesterday because of brake noise. Evan is a mild mannered, eager to please guy. They looked at my car and while I do need some brake work done (for which they gave me a printed estimate), there was a more pressing matter (something to do with my struts, which I knew were going out). I chose the more urgent matter. Did he press me to buy more than I needed? Nope. Did he have any kind of attitude whatsoever when I decided to put one off (which was also a bit more money)? Nope. He actually helped steer me in the direction I went.  Because it was going to take some time, he drove me home and offered to pick me up again. I know that many shops, if they're large enough, will do this for you but I just can't say enough about this place. It's VERY clean, has mags for girls and boys (the mature variety) and a nice waiting area. He apologized for my wait and was so amazingly kind and courteous. Ok, I'll stop now. This is one happy customer!

Amazing experience today at this shop. Car problems are very frustrating for people and his staff was professional and went above and beyond to provide a great experience. Erica was extremely polite,offered me water while I waited. Gave me a shirt and everything. David was the tech. The guy knows his stuff. Made great recommendations based on what I told him I needed. Very knowledgeable and kind. And Eric the manager went so far as to take me home twice so that I didn't have to wait at the shop. Car drives beautifully now. This is the best experience I've ever had at a auto repair shop. I will continue to come back here even when I leave San Pedro. I've never left a Yelp review but I had to let people know. Thank you to the whole staff!!!

Evan, Dave and the crew are on their game! Always fair and repair in a timely manner.

Great shop. Great people! Love Evan, David and Erika. Very upbeat and helpful.

You can't get a friendlier & more knowledgeable shop in this area. They know their stuff and are wonderful to work with.

— Yelp User

Great place for oil changes and maintenance issues, I bring my car here all the time ,and have referred others,expert brake and alignment services.Very trustworthy.

— Yelp User

First off, HUGE kudos to Evan & his team! I have to commend them for their amazing customer service over my last two visits and will likely continue to go to them for all my car servicing needs when they come up! I had a Super Saver Coupon/Ticket which I had purchased last year and had one day left to use it and they more than accommodated my situation when they didn't have to! I am grateful & appreciative for that and now fully understand why they've been a fixture in the San Pedro community since 1931. I hope their longstanding tradition continues for many years to come!

— Yelp User

This place is one of the most loyal mechanics shop in the city of San Pedro very courteous and very accommodating right along with the mechanics very courteous and accommodating so if you ever need your vehicle work on go check these guys out you won't go wrong!!

— Yelp User

i have been going here for several years, starting with break issues, and now a fan of oil changes, and other car care. I have discovered they are truly becoming a full service type garage and they  had suggestions for my car on next return to keep maintenance up to date as I will not go back to a  dealership

— Yelp User

Where do I start?!? From the time I called to get my brakes done, to picking up my car--wonderful customer service throughout! They were able to fit me in and I'm so happy I was able to have my car repaired here. My car feels like a new car.. (Lol) but it drives very good. Perfect, in fact.

— Yelp User

Excellent service. Helped me with my special needs. Awesome crew. Definitely recommend for service of your vehicle.  Top notch.

What a gem of a business!  Kind, professional, clean, and most of all, excellent workmanship!  My truck was towed in with a coolant system issue, and to find an auto repair shop you can TRUST really stoked me out.  David the auto-technician is awesome and, in my opinion, a automotive genius.  Erica the Commander at the front desk is super nice and efficient.  My bill was what it should be and the ethical standards are evident at Harbor Brake.  I HIGHLY recommend this place.  Being a first-timer, I feel fortunate that my truck was repaired properly and I was treated excellent.  I'd give 10 stars if it were possible‼. Thank you David!  Thank you Erica!  I'll be back. (Say like Arnold)

— Yelp User

Great friendly service! Highly recommend their thorough inspection and recommendations, had all four brakes replaced.

— Yelp User

The whole staff team is really professional and nice people. From my experience over the phone with Erica to talking to David was really positive and efficient. I did not meet them through people or word of mouth. They really take care of you and your cat regardless who are or who you know. Now as far experience, efficiency and schedule time they are on point.   5  all the way.  David is specialist in Toyota or Honda which are the cars we own.  I am very skeptical and picky person. Nonetheless I am very satisfied and with them !

— Yelp User

This is the only place I would take my car! They are honest and always make you feel very very welcomed.. Been coming here for years and they have always done an awesome job..You can TRUST these people..

— Yelp User

They are still the best, am so grateful to have these guys so close and so trustworthy!

— Yelp User

You guys (David) are the best.  It's such a relief to have a reliable and trustworthy place for the car.  Love U all, and you give the best HUGS

Excellent service done in a timely, friendly, honest & thoughtful manner. I have been in San Pedro about 10 months & my car was overdue for routine maintenance. I happen to meet the owner while out one evening at a local restaurant. Evan gave me his business card after sharing that they've expanded their auto services.  After a week I made an appointment to bring my car in for service. They gave me a ride home & later picked me up and brought me back to the shop. Dave, the friendly technician who worked on my car, had really been listening. I had moaned about the beating my beautiful car has taken since being here. He went ABOVE & BEYOND the work order and smoothed out some of the scratches which he called " parking lot rash." It looked better than ever! Charges for the oil & filters & service were average & reasonable. I am grateful for the great communication and friendly service from everyone there.  If you are looking for great, dependable, trustworthy, friendly service you should give Harbor Brake And Automotive Service a try.

Owners are always friendly and strive to make your experience a positive one.  Prices are good, service is excellent.

I came here for the first time the other day, good service in a timely manner. I came for an oil change and it cost 43dlls. Over all a thorough check and standard wait (about 20-30 mins). I personally love the old building and the vintage feel to it.

— Yelp User

I love this place!!  Evan & his family are awesome.  They are always so polite he reminds me when my car is due for routine maintenance & advises what is due that isn't just an oil change.  They drive you home to wait & pick you up when done.  We are all so busy today so having someone looking out for you & your car is something off my plate.  Its like having your own car handyman. He even offered a car wash don't know if that is usual but thanks a bunch.  I'll keep coming back.

— Yelp User

2/28/2018 This is the only place I will take my track car.  Dave is extremely talented and knows details to look for in making sure a thorough job is done, and done right.  Don't let the looks of the shop fool you, these guys know what they're doing!

Great shop! On Monday I noticed that my brake lights stayed on even after turning the car off (I had to step hard on the brakes until the lights turned off that night). The following day, Tuesday morning, I noticed that my rear lights were on as I walked toward my car so when I got to San Pedro I happened to drive past this shop and read "Harbor Brake" so I just parked the car an walked in. I asked if they could take a look at the car and they let me just leave it there without having to make an appointment. The people were very helpful and nice! They did not overcharge me for the service (brake switch) and even gave me a Student discount!  I will definitely come back to this shop!! Highly reccomend it.  Car: 2011 Hyundai Sonata
