      I do think they are a good price and probably do good work but I certainly would never go back and I don't think any female would be comfortable there. I'd rather pay a few dollars more, and I will, rather than go back. The girl at the front is sloooooooooow, terrible and I told her so. She just shrugged her shoulders and that was that. She is only interested in having a foul mouth, flirting, losing weight and smoking. My paperwork sat there for 25 minutes until I called it to her attention. There is so much swearing and flirting going on there and they are rude and condescending to women. I found them to be ghastly.

      I've been going to Akey Brakey since around 2000 and I've had nothing but great experiences. Unlike other mechanics, I've been talked out of procedures that I thought I needed. I've also received many freebies like topped fluid replacements, light bulb changes, etc. This is one of the few places that I freely refer to others without concern that I'll look foolish.

      I moved out from Agoura Hills 3 years ago.
      Now, I got a hard time to get an honest mechanic in the new area where I moved in. I miss Gregg auto repair service big time, his quality work is recommendable, his price is reasonable, and most of all they (Gregg and Mark) are very honest mechanics. They will be telling you up front the kind of problem with your car and how much they are going to charge you. When I used to take my car to Gregg, I had never comeback for the same problem. From their short daily service hours and no sat and sun business hour, very obvious they are not after your money but helping customers with great quality service for reasonable price.

      I've owned used cars for the last 8 years, and have trusted this establishment to keep me on the road. It was my son that sent me to Akey Brakey. Needless to say consistency has earned the confidence I have in Greg's honesty and willingness to offer the best options available. It's disheartening that unreasonable expectations find their way onto the internet as reviews. 8 years, great results, and my recommended friends have had the same positive experience.

      Greg seems like a good mechanic to me. I always get several quotes when I need repairs done, his price is always fair. I don't expect any mechanic to sell me parts at cost. They are a business and should have a retail mark up. The most important thing to me is that the parts are installed right and that work being done, actually needs to be done.
      So far, with Akey Brakey, I've had No Problems. And after reading about the Lady with bad Door locks, it sounds like she bought a base model hyundai with no power locks, and the dealership added aftermarket power locks. Then when they broke, she got a price quote from the dealership for a lock that was on the upper model hyndai with factory locks. I know the Dealership would have charged alot more in labor than Akey Brakey. Sounds like the kind of pain in the a$$ customer nobody wants to deal with. Few things in life are free lady, you need a reality check!

      I own Akey Brakey Auto. Once again i will need to respond to an unfair review. Sara came in and waited for our discounted oil change and gave us a list of 3 additional items to inspect for her. 1. seat belt twists, 2. heater inoperative 3. door lock on drivers side inoperative. The seat belt was twisting and appeared to have been installed backwards by someone. She did not want that repaired. The heater was inoperative due to loss of water from a leaking upper radiator hose. She also did not want that repaired. Lastly the door lock was checked out and a factory cable was broken. The car does have aftermarket door lock actuators and i advised her i would not warranty the new factory cable if it failed. This aftermarket ad on door actuator connected to the existing broken cable and caused the cable initially to break. She seemed liked she did not have the funds to complete the other repairs. So my technician advised her of a different solution to get the door locks to work to save her money. She wanted to proceed with the repair of the door lock to the state is was in prior to it breaking and an oil change. She paid $45.00 for door panel removal & inspection and $24.16 for the special order factory cable part from Hyundai not $44.00 for the cable as she claimed. She called 2 days later and stated she had some sort of radiator cap issue and blamed us and she didn't want us to install a new cable for her door lock. She stated she felt uncomfortable with us doing any repair and wanted the money back for special order door lock cable part that had not arrived yet and diagnosis and inspection of the door lock problem. We did not charge her to look at the other items we spent a good one and a half hours with her vehicle. I am unsure if there was ever any problem with the radiator cap. I did give her a full refund including the oil change and asked her not to return to our repair facility for any future repairs due to her unreasonable demands and attidude. It is unfortunate that we can not please everyone and some revert to unfair reviews. In this situation after giving her a complete refund even though we felt she was in the wrong, we stepped up and tried to make her happy with no avail. We at Akey Brakey try to be fair and honest with all our customers, Thank you, Mark & Greg

      Akey Brakey is a horrible establishment. The deceit and the challenges I endured from this shop was endless. First I originally took my vehicle in for an oil change and asked Greg to check several other concerns I had. Well, he did, but his mechanic was shady. I asked him to look at my door locks and when he spoke to me about the problem it was as if they wanted me to accept a half as job for full price, like they would make the locks work but not entirely and then looked me in the eye and said " thats all you REALLY need, right? You just need them to lock" I gave him the benefit of the doubt and explained to them that I wanted the whole system to work as it is suppose to (opens all doors when I use my key, locks all doors when I start the engine, etc.). He then charged me $44 for the part and when I called, the part was $15 at the parts place and to add to all this they told me that the part they were going to get was an after market part and they could not guarantee the part. Well I called the part place and it was the actual dealership and the part is NOT after market-it is the real deal!! They were trying to get out of his mechanics possible screw ups since, in retrospect, he really did not know what he was doing, but continued to try and get my money. Oh and my car starting running very bad the next day, so I looked under the hood and the mechanic left the radiator cap off the radiator!!!!! Good thing I know that much about cars or it all could have been bad (for my car and legally) Well when I brought this issue up, he did refund my money, but he never said sorry and he made me sign a statement saying I would never go back!! The nerve. Anyway, do not go here, they are ignorant and shady. Now I have a door with no panel.

      I took my car to Greg for many reasons and over a period of many years. Even when I changed cars, I took my cars to Akey Brakey for repairs, because Greg is an honest person. He has always been fair and reasonable with pricing. Has always described any work to be done, and has even found less expensive ways to repair my car if it was possible. I know Greg has struggled with his business in the past, but it hasn't stopped him from maintaining his integrity as a business owner and mechanic, and doing what's best for his customers. That's how you get repeat business; word of mouth and good, honest work. Personally, I have had only the best of service from Greg, and he has always done the right thing by me.
      I can't say a wrong thing about him.
