Finally found a shop where I get truly honest and knowledgeable service.

I just bought a 1998 Toyota Tacoma, 2.7 L 4x4 with 128,500 miles, 5 speed manual shift. I bought it to pull my boat to Baja for frequent fishing excursions in Baja, usually to beach launch it. I don??t want any unforeseen problems when in Mexico.

I got a recommendation to take it to ??Chris?? in Huntington Beach I had already spoken to about 3 different mechanics and was not impressed. I am an accountant and ex-auditor, I know how to interrogate. Also, the truck couldn??t pass the smog test.

When I took my truck to Chris??s shop, I told him to check the vehicle out thoroughly. He said that he would check the exhaust and emissions systems, the electrical and ignitions system, the transmission, the differential, gear box, and power train in general, brakes, wheel joints and hubs, any and all leaks, suspension, alignment, steering, air conditioning and heating system, and if I wanted, he would straighten out the front end as the front bumper was a bit tweaked. Well, I thought that was pretty detailed.

Chris got back to me by phone in less than 24 hours and gave me a litany of things that he found and gave me a detailed estimate to fix for each and every item, parts and labor cost. The bumper fix wasn??t on the list. The detail was impressive, it was obvious that he did a serious and thorough inspection. Chris is a straight shooter, respectful, and had an uncanny sense when I needed further explanation in layman??s terms. He didn??t try to confuse me or use my lack of knowledge against me. Instead, he made sure that I understood everything that I was curious about or that was necessary for me to know. Man, that??s also a first!

I gave the authorization to do all the work required as the price was much better than the other estimates I got and Chris had more on his list than the others did.

The vehicle was ready in two days, all things considered and based on the list, that was pretty quick. The cost came out less than the estimates and here is the kicker. Chris threw in the bumper fix, no charge. Because he knew metal work, he said the fix to the bumper was just a matter of pulling from the correct angle and didn??t take long (try to get THAT response from any body shop, let alone a mechanic??s shop).

I immediately took the truck to get it smog checked, passed with flying colors. The bumper looks perfect, the engine purrs like an electrical turbine, starts instantly every time, all the time, the clutch is tight, the steering is tight and rolls straight and true, air conditioning is as cold as a meat locker, no more oil or tranny leaks, mysterious hiss coming out of the exhaust is gone, immediate acceleration, smell of gas and burned oil is gone, gas mileage improved by 3 miles in-town driving and 5 miles on the highway. In short, the truck drives and sounds like a new vehicle in every respect.

I have found my mechanic for life. I am taking my other vehicles to Chris??s shop and I am making sure that my son and daughter are getting their vehicles serviced and fixed by Chris from now on, no if, ands, or buts. It is the safe thing to do.

I am picky about who fixes my car. I want someone who is going to fix what needs to be fixed without trying to sell me other repairs that are not really needed.

I was very happy when I took my to Chris. He was able to figure out what the problem was and fix it. He is a great guy - family man who can be trusted. When you find a place like this you stick with it, and that is what I plan on doing.

Go see Chris!

When they were a radiator shop, they were great! As a complete auto repair shop I can expect the same great service as before. They still take care of ALL my families vehicles. We always recommend them to all our friends. Thanks Frank and Chris!!
We can drive our cars over 200,000 miles thanks to thier service and care. Over 300,000 on the old Chevrolet.

I recently had business done at HB Automotive, formerly Strictly Automotive. The service was quick and Chris did a fantastic job of explaining to me the exact problem so we could get in fix the problem and go on with the rest of my day. I appreciated the quickness and honestly and will be returning if i need more work done, (knock on wood)!

Just had my truck drive train repaired and my daughters car serviced and air conditioning fixed. \r
The service was great because these guys listen to what I told them. They went right to the problem and told me some things that will save me money latter on. \r
They even gave me a ride back home too. That really helped. They were recommended by a friend of mine and he was right.

Pros: Good service, great people

Cons: None of the antiques on display were for sale

We've been bringing cars to Chris for over 10 years. He's always done a good job for us and knows how to save money for us. \r
He changed the name of the shop but we still bring them our cars for oil changes and service.

When I hit 40k mileages, I went to Bolsa Radiator for a radiator flush. I called ahead and ask how long it will take, since I had a lot of errands to run that day, and they told me 20 minutes. When I arrived to the time I left was under 10 minutes. When I arrived the man just took my car, did the flush, and went back to wrote me an invoice. The service was fast, swift, honest, and better than promise. I was very happy and would defiant come back again.

Bolsa radiator is a great place to get your radiator fluid flush. I went here last week to get my radiator flush and replace. They charged me $45 to flush it, which was reason. The customer services there are very nice and very fast. They completed the job within 20 minutes. Very good, and I am very happy with the service.
