When I recently found myself in the position of having my car towed to the nearest town (Fresno) to have repair work done, I was directed to Sebring West. The other positive reviews online helped me to feel confident in this decision. Thanks for posting! Sebring West did an excellent job repairing my vehicle, and I am happy to recommend them to others. This is a place that takes pride in a job well done and customers whose expectations are either met or exceeded. Thanks again, Sebring West!

So if you happened to see my review of ANOTHER automotive place in Central CA, you may realize I'm gunshy to bring my car in when I'm having a problem. Not anymore! When my Corsica was stalling, I took it to Sevring West and told them how I'd been taken advantage of by another repair shop. They were HORRIFIED! They took my car for a test drive, and asked if they could keep it until they got it to act up. In a few short hours, they diagnosed the problem (stuck solenoid), explained to me what it was and how it worked. And charged me all of $50! Well worth it! And I LOVED that they took the time to explain everything to me!

PROS: Fair Honest and quick!
CONS:

Message from Sebring West Automotive Center

Sebring West Automotive Center is locally owned and operated by Fresno native, Tony Pasco. Tony's passion for foreign cars and all things automotive led him and a friend to open a 4, 000 square foot repair shop on McKinley Avenue, in January of 1971. From the beginning, Tony specialized in foreign automotive repairs. At that time, foreign cars were an area of the automotive industry just in its infancy, a few years before the US gasoline crunch brought floods of foreign cars to American consumers. 1975 brought the opening of a small parts department adjacent to the existing service area. With an all-foreign parts inventory, the majority of Sebring West's stock was geared toward Tony's first love, the air-cooled Volkswagen. The VW Beetle became one of the best-selling import cars in the country and Sebring West soon grew to be known as the leader in air-cooled VW repairs. By 1978, Sebring West's parts department had outgrown the McKinley location. Two and a half miles away, Tony opened a 7, 000 square foot parts department, just off of Blackstone, Fresno's "Business Boulevard." With two stores in full swing, Tony hired qualified employees and slowly began his own transformation from mechanic to full-time manager. In 1985, Sebring West joined the well-known national marketing cooperative, CARQUEST. This move added American parts to the Sebring West inventory and more importantly, it provided employees access to a local parts warehouse. This newfound advantage enabled Sebring West to offer its clientele same day service for even hard-to-find parts. By 1989, Sebring West had outgrown both locations. In search of a permanent home for Sebring West, Tony found a building that would allow the business to grow. A vacant Buick dealership provided 20, 000 square feet of space to combine both the service and parts divisions of Sebring West in a single convenient location. Now, nearly 40 years later, under the same ownership, Sebring West Automotive Center is proud to serve you as one of the largest independent service and parts facilities in the San Joaquin Valley.
