I've been taking my 1987 Chrysler New Yorker to Select Auto since I moved to LA almost 4 years ago. The shop has been under different management for the last year or two, but there has been no change in quality customer service and repair. I've had new shocks and struts, new brakes, a new AC, oil pan gasket repair, and other things done in the past, all warranted for a year (the AC is still running the best ever, and it's been over 2 years). I recently debated whether or not I should take the car in when the engine went out, konwing the car has 161K miles on it and is 13 years old. I'm glad I did. Though it took 4 weeks to make the repair (they had to send the engine to an engine shop to have it rebuilt), and they had to send it back once because of an imbalance, I was happy with the thoroughness of their approach. Mike, the owner, showed me my car and then showed me my engine that they had removed before they sent it to the engine shop. They also took $250 off the total price of engine repair, which was creeping up to $2500, after an extensive search for a lesser priced turbo engine (the engine had gone up $300 in price, from $1500 to $1800, over the past year since I first inquired about the engine troubles), and they did many other things for the car free of charge (except for parts cost) to ensure everything would be streamlined with the newly rebuilt engine, which included an oil change, new hoses, a cleaned transmission, and other things. The final tally was about $2260, which I felt was reasonable. When I went to pick the car up, Mike was washing it himself (my car had sat for several months until I finally took it in, so I was going to get it washed after picking it up, so I was just surprised to see Mike washing it). I drove it around and it sometime sounded like it was struggling just a bit, but I am still testing it out. I called Mike and told him I had questions and he said that it could be that the car needs to be warmed up more, but that I could bring it in anytime and he would test drive it himself to see if there were any adjustments to be made. So far I am happy with the work that has been done to keep my ol' Chrysler running along in crazy LA traffic the last few years. I'm surprised Select Auto wasn't listed on this site before. I'm glad it is now and hope others will have as good as an experience as I have. He is truly a good neighborhood mechanic.
