As a woman, I never know how I'll be treated in an auto repair place. Sad, but true. I hate my Volkswagen dealership, who I can't trust at all, so I always bring my car back to Whities. Before I had my Volkswagen, I brought my Saturn. My husband also brings his Saturn, and before that, brought his Toyota. We've recommended them to countless friends and family members. The best thing is that this is a family run business, and Barbara always takes the time to describe the problem, the solution, which services I can wait on if I'm low on cash, etc. They're understanding and helpful, and I trust them, which is very important.

We have been taking our cars to Whities for 10 years. We recommend them to our friends and many of them have become recurring customers there as well. I used to comparison shop when I needed expensive repairs done, and they were consistently 30% cheaper than the dealer and comparable or better than other independent shops. Barbara takes the time to explain what's wrong and why it needs to be done now or how long it can wait. They are familiar with and have a good relationship with suppliers of all types in the area and can tell you where to get the best deal on tires or other services that don't necessarily require a mechanic (although they will take care of those things as well). Getting a ride to and from the shop elsewhere in Pasadena is never a problem, and our cars are usually done that day or the next, even for complicated or multiple repairs.

Barbara and Whitie have serviced our family cars for over 25 years. Our children, their friends, and many co-workers have all used their services with complete satisfaction. Besides the typical servicing they have maintained my 1930 Model A flat bed truck and helped with the construction of a 1965 replica of a Shelby Cobra roadster. Both still return for periodic check-ups. Now, if Barbara would just give a discount for repeat customers...... A fair price for good service is too quickly disappearing. Get to Whities before they retire.
