I’m from out of state and visiting California for a few months. I’ve needed to take my vehicle in twice for different issues. Andy has been one of the most honest and price reasonable mechanics I’ve ever dealt with. Even the rate he charged me (for a battery drain - which we all know is a crap-shoot trying to track down the issue), he thinks he found the cause but has indicated if the problem persists, bring it back and he will spend additional time at no extra charge. He’s been a pleasure to work with. I don’t have a big budget to work with and I was afraid of what this problem was going to cost. But he took care of me and was extremely fair.

My son was taken advantage of by a mobile auto repair. Andy fixed what was fixed incorrectly! So, when I thought I needed brake work on my car. I took it to Andy. Turns out my brakes are fine! I got an oil change and all is well! Other mechanics could have taken advantage of me, but Andy didn’t. Thanks so much, Andy!

McLaren Auto repair assisted me again. Andy takes your call and schedules your appointment for diagnosis of automotive needs and makes necessary repairs, sometimes the same day. This shop in Thousand Oaks is one of those “rare” mechanics that gets you in and doesn’t rip you off. Been a 20 year customer and every car and truck I’ve owned has been repaired by them. If you don’t have a trustworthy mechanic and you need your vehicle to be reliable. I suggest McLaren. Andy has never kept my vehicle too long or sold me stuff I didn’t need. Great Service and another good experience. Thanks again!
