I had a noise coming from my A/C compressor and my local shop suggested Alouis Radiator to do the work. I dropped the car off at 7:30am when they opened. They have a $110 inspection charge (one hour of labor) that you don't pay if they do the repair work. I got a call less than an hour later. They told me I had a few options. They could take the A/C belt off if I could live without A/C. Otherwise, they would take the compressor off and check to see if it could be repaired (the A/C clutch was the problem). Otherwise, it would need a new A/C compressor. I told them to replace the A/C compressor if necessary (usually if the clutch goes, the compressor isn't far behind). I called them up at 3pm and they said they were having trouble finding a part, but it just came in and the car would be ready at 5pm. I headed over at 5pm and the car wasn't ready yet, but they were staying late to get it done (nice!). 20 minutes later, the car was completely fixed. The price was reasonable (labor rates are high in San Francisco generally and the parts prices were good). They were friendly and responsive when I called. Overall, I'm quite happy with the work they did and would recommend them to others.
