Fixcarnow has been servicing and repairing the vehicles of the greater Los Angeles area for over twenty five years. With 11 locations now serving Los Angeles, we are one of the most reputable auto repair shops in Southern California. Just check out our Yelp and Google ratings and see what our loyal customers have to say. Customers love our free shuttle service, free loaner cars, free brake checks, same day service and two year warranties.
If you need auto repair or maintenance, go ahead and stop by or visit one of Fixcarnow's locations. Our ASE-certified technicians are always on hand to help you with anything you need. Just a few services we offer include brake repair, timing belt inspection and replacement, alternator repair, radiator and water pump repair, transmission replacement and even total engine replacement. Our services maintain your new car warranty, so feel free to see us for all of your routine maintenance needs including oil changes, 30/60/90 services, tune ups, filter replacements and brakes.
The best thing you can do for your car is to keep current with routine maintenance services. Simply having your oil changed every 3,000 to 5,000 miles, your front brakes changed at 30,000 miles and your rear brakes changed at 60,000 miles, and your timing belt changed every 70,000 to 90,000 miles will extend the life of your car by years. If you haven't been keeping up with your routine maintenance, you may be noticing problems with the different systems of your car. For example, squeaks, squeals and roars indicate it's at least time for brake pad replacement and could also indicate the need for brake fluid and the repair or replacement of the rotors. As the 'lifeblood' of your car, it is very important that your engine oil be as clean as possible. The oil will naturally pick up dirt and debris as it ages, and this dirty oil will then be recirculated, causing premature wear and tear on the different parts of your engine, causing your engine to run sluggishly and adversely affecting gas mileage as well. The timing belt may only alert you with a slight knocking sound in the front of your engine, but if it breaks down you will be instantly stranded. The timing belt is what causes your engine to run, and once it wears or breaks you are looking at a pricy repair bill.
Getting your oil changed regularly at Fixcarnow will allow our ASE-certified mechanics to give your car a full safety check. In addition to receiving 5 quarts of Castrol or Castrol Syntec oil and a new oil filter, we will also top and fill your brake, transmission, battery and power steering fluids, fill your tires, check your belts and hoses, lube the chassis, check the window wiper blades and check your brakes. With such a thorough inspection included in an already reasonably priced oil change, there is no reason to go anywhere else. Our inspection will catch any imminent repair issues including problems with brakes, timing belts, fluid leaks, and tire wear and tear.
Stop by and see us today. You'll immediately see why we've been successfully doing auto repair in the greater Los Angeles area for more than two decades. Our prices, reputation, quality of service, convenient loaner cars and shuttle services, free inspections and two year warranties keep our customers coming back to us year after year. Close
Considerations When Hiring a Mechanic
It's been said many times that one of the most important professional relationships you can develop is with a trustworthy mechanic. If you don't have a family member who is a mechanic, or if you're not inclined to do your own auto repairs, then you will need to know what to look for when developing this important relationship.
The first thing you will want to consider when hiring a mechanic is to consider the recommendations of your family and friends or people whose opinion you inherently trust. You must also check the public reviews of the shop on Yelp and Google. There you will find a good selection of reviews and opinions that you can take into consideration. Read More
Communication is key. Does the mechanic explain repairs clearly to you? Do you leave the conversation understanding why you need work, what exactly will be done, how much it will cost and if there is any way you can possibly get the work done for less? It is important that you feel the mechanic takes your personal situation into consideration. If you need an expensive repair that has caught you unaware, does the mechanic listen to you when you explain that the cost may be a problem? Perhaps the shop has alternative ways to repair your vehicle, or use less expensive parts to save you money. Be sure to ask it certainly can't hurt. Never pay for any work you have not authorized.
If you are seeking something unique such as a specialist for your particular car or specific repairs, be sure to ask if the mechanic has experience with what you are seeking. Be sure to ask if your car will be sent elsewhere or worked on by a mechanic other than the one you've chosen. Some mechanics will specialize in particular cars, makes, models, domestics, imports or types of repairs such as tires, engine, transmission or brakes. If you will be needing more than one type of repair that your mechanic may not provide, perhaps they can provide a recommendation for another mechanic.
Location and transportation are also important when choosing a mechanic. Once you drop off your car, how will you travel to work or home? If the repair will take a number of days, ask if the shop provides shuttle service or free loaner cars. Will you need to make a reservation for the loaner car or is it readily available?
