I can strongly recommend Hrant ! When we moved into our neighborhood in Pasadena he was universally recommended by our neighbors and they steered us right ! He is responsive and really gives the impression he wants to work on our car. He is very good and efficient. He treats jalopies and newer cars alike. It's always been a positive experience to have a repair done by Hrant !

Hrant is an exceptional mechanic and I highly recommend him if you're in the Pasadena/Altadena corridor in SoCal. As owner of Hrant Auto Service, his integrity is passed on to his mechanics and is more importantly a testament in how quality, service and experience provides fertile ground for repeat business. His straightforward no-nonsense explanation of mechanical problems is reason enough for the non-mechnically inclined to get their car issue diagnosed at his shop. Even during busy moments, he demonstrates the kind of courtesy and patience any consumer would appreciate. After getting my car repaired, I left with a sense of security and peace of mind. I was so pleased with the experience, I had to write this comment just to let others know that honest mechanics do exist.

The best thing about my visit with them is that my car was fixed on the same day. This was important to me because I am a production assistant for a productin studio, so I sometimes spend all day driving. The employees are all very nice. The day after my car was repaired, it seemed to idle particularly low, and I sometimes had to rev in order to keep the car from turning off. The real problems, however, were the starter, dist. cap, and spark plugs, which they fixed efficiently. Still, I feel as though something has been overlooked. Three of my stereo presets were reset to a Christian radio station. Changing them back is easy enough, but I thought that was kind of weird. Anyway, they are very nice people. I can't say that they did a splendid job, but they did fix the problem enough for the vehicle to function, and they did so in a timely manner. If speed is your priority, I strongly recommend them.

Once I came in because my stick shift Toyota would not start on the first try. Sometimes it would take three or four times to get it to start. Harant took out the bunched up floor mat that had wedged itself under the cluch and the car started right up. No charge. He could have opened the hood, fiddled with wires or something and charged me 100 bucks. I would have never known. He's honest, kind and gets your car back to you almost always on the same day.

I trust and admire Hrant more than any other mechanic I have ever known. He was recommended by a friend whose family swore by him. He is always kind, courteous, respectful, never condescending, and explains clearly what needs to be done. If he can't fix it, he recommends someone who can. He often has made quick, easy repairs at no charge, when he could easily have charged me, or lead me to believe that there was something seriously wrong with my car. I have recommended him to my best friends, who also believe he is the best.

Hrant has been the primary caregiver to my Impreza wagon for years and when I recently pulled up in a 1972 triumph (that needs a LOT of work), he came out to say "way cool". Hrant treats all cars and carowners alike - with friendliness and respect and he is exceptional in finishing the work within the schedule he gives (usually same day).

Hrant has worked on my cars for ten years, the service was always fast and competent.

Harant is always personable and helpful. He is helpful in working your car in when you really need it. Always fast service. He solved our "leak" by opening the trunk and removing a leaky bottle of anti-freeze that was dripping down - no charge.

At the recommendation of this site, I have taken my 1999 Olds Alero to them twice -once for brakes, and once for a suspension problem. Both times they proved their trustworthiness in finding and fixing the problem in less time and expense than we had agreed-upon.
