Bill proved his honesty when he saved my transmission. He could have very easily have said that I needed another transmission for over $2,000! I had never had any doubts about his workmanship or his honesty and I knew then and there that he was a rarity! I recommend South Coast Auto to anyone who will listen! He also gives a 10% Auto Club discount on everything!

Bill Willoughby has retired. We have used South Coast Auto Clinic for over 20 years, and have always been satisfied that we were getting fair, honest work from a man how was devoted to his work. Times change, though, and we are evaluating other options. With the change of ownership, we have seen just enough changes that we want to be prepared should we need to move on to another chapter of care maintenance.

Alex Correa is the new owner and he continues the established tradition of quality that for South Coast Auto Clinic. Good place to go.

They tell you the real scoop. And when we send new folks there from work (often just out of school) they will tell them "this you need done now, that can wait a couple months and the other thing you will need to take care of in a year." Good folks. I credit them with a lot of the reason my truck has close to 400,000 miles on it.

I have been taking the family minivan here for years. They don't push or oversell - they are good about doing what is really needed and letting me know what's coming up. They seem to be fair and honest. I keep going back!

ABSOLUTELY EXCELLENT SERVICE - HONEST, TRUSTWORTHY, GREAT. IT IS DIFFICULT TO FIND A AUTO REPAIR SHOP (ESPECIALLY WOMEN) WHO YOU CAN TRUST AND DOES NOT TALK DOWN TO. SUPERB.

They're always honest, fair on their prices, and stand by their work. They'll even pick you up take you back to work or home; within 5 miles

I live in Anchorage, Alaska. I found a used Jeep Cherokee for sale on the web in Costa Mesa, and found South Coast Auto here on the Car Talk Mechanics Files. South Coast agreed to pick up the car from the seller and perform a pre- purchase inspection for me. The inspection was thorough, the service was prompt, and the cost was very reasonable. Based on their inspection, I bought the Jeep sight-unseen, flew to Los Angeles, and drove it home to Alaska with no problems. I'm very happy with their service and with the car.
