We've been happy with this shop. We have been going to it for over 7 years, doing most repairs of two cars with them. The only disadvantage for us is that it is a long drive for us (from UTC area), but this is not their fault. That's why some jobs, especially such as oil change, were done at a place near our home. Alex and Sem, the owners of the shop are honest people and knowledgeable mechanics with over 20 years of experience. They have very reasonable straight-forward prices (no coupon or specials games). On several occasions having repairs done with ALSE Auto saved us up to 15-20% compared to other shops. How? They don't charge as much for labor (or should I say 'they don't overcharge'?!). You won't get extra perks at their office such as coffee or donuts, but they are not a coffee shop, are they? They don't want to waste anybody's time, but they take time to explain the problem and possible solutions to the customer. My wife noted on several occasions that they explain things in detail to her and to other female customers that she observed. I have not seen them suggesting any unreasonable repairs. On opposite, they suggested me not to do some replacements that another shop (Boulevard Automotive in PB/La Jolla) recommended, and demonstrated why those are not really needed. I always see them busy, so, sometimes you might need to wait until they can work on your car, but they always ask you right away about your problem. If you bring your car early in the morning when they just opened, - there is a good chance that they might start working on it right away. It is hard to find an auto-mechanic you can trust. We are happy with these guys.
