This used to be the only place I would go but something changed drastically! The last few times I was here the service was bad and my car wash was sloppy! I also used to trust them with my auto repairs but I found that they were constantly trying to charge more than we agreed on. It became a constant battle over the price we agreed and the price they wanted to charge. I know times are tough but using deceptive business practices to make an extra dollar is wrong! I will NEVER go there again!

I know I should not have left anything in the car, but I had been going there for 2 years and left my iPod in the door handle. It was a new iPod Nano so it is small enough to fit in someone's palm. I remembered I left it as the car was going through the wash, but I had been to this car wash a lot so I didn't worry. When I got the car back, I got in and started to drive away. I reached for my iPod & it was gone. I went back and did not blame anyone, but I explained the situation. I thought maybe it had gone through the vacuum vent. All of the guys gathered around and tried to figure out who may have seen it, who cleaned the car, etc. They said they would check the vacuum and call me. Of course it was not there. I hated accusing anyone or believing anyone would have taken something from my car. But it was there when I left the car & it was gone when I got the car. The owner offered me a free detailing but I refused it. I don't want the person who stole my iPod detailing my car. I should not have left it in my car, but I was trying to hurry out of my car and left it by accident.

Pros: Great Car Wash...had been going there for 2 years.

Cons: iPod stolen from car.

The car wash and lube is good but a little pricey compared to the Chinese mechanic in Alhambra and San Gabriel.

DO NOT got to them if you have problem with your car's mechanism. They will list down problems that you are not even aware of. They do not know what they are doing because they have never done a good trouble shooting!! They go by trial and error and tell you all kinds of things that are not related. I got a second opinion from the Asian mechanics and got a different view, which is more accurate and most problems are solved.

I am driving a Dodge Minivan which is already more than 10 years old. I just did a transmission flush at a very low price in San Gabriel.

Another friend of mine went to change his brake pads there and some belt change too... they damaged his SUV's radiator and it leaks after that. They are not that responsible as they denied that they have caused the damage.

So in conclusion, I am very sorry for those car owners who have committed their vehicles to the Sonora Shop.

Pros: Good Car Wash

Cons: Poor mechanic services

These guys stripped the plugs on my oil pan when I went to them. Then they lied to me when I asked them about it. I know this for a fact because I had two other mechanics inspect my vehicle.

This issue is still unresolved and I would never take my car back to them again.

I recently got my services done at sonora auto spa, all i can say was they were great, helpful, and friendly. I went in for an oil change and thank god they found a leak that was going to cost big bucks if they didnt put it to my attention. They were quick, prices were fair, and i was happy when i left. You will be seeing me next time for my services.

I recently got a carwash at Sonora Auto Spa, i was very impressed! friendly greeters, did it quick n did a nice job, the last that got to me was when i handed my claim ticket to the worker, he opened the door for me and said " thank you very much " . I've been to many carwashs which the workers just take the " tip " and leave without any " thank you ". Sonora Auto Spa you got yourself a loyal customer for life !

I was a big fan of this auto salon when they first opened.. the service was friendly, the oil change was prompt and the car wash was excellent. However, over the past few months the service has definitely taken a big dive, mainly because the price for an oil change and car wash combo is artificially low.. lower than most quick lubes charge for an oil change alone. Consequently, the business is crowded 24/7 and just driving in on a weekend is complete chaos! Additionally, I discovered that after multiple visits to the Chevron-branded oil change facility, my oil pan drain bolt had become stripped by the service techs, who are admittedly working on a severe time frame to keep up with all this traffic. I would recommend they raise the price at least $5 (not something I say often) in order to ease the nightmare that this business has become without losing revenue.

Pros: Price

Cons: Price (see review), Traffic, Parking, Service

I go to this car wash often. Of the last 12 times they missed the wax on the early-bird special 10 times. Had to wash car again every time to get it right. While this is not a bad thing in itself to get a free car wash it wastes my time and theirs. The owner just refers you to the manager and the manager does nothing about it. Sad because they do a pretty good job on the wash. I just can't afford the time anymore.

PROS: Thorough job and good wash.
CONS: Management doesn't seem to care...no rain check...a little expensive.

I have been to this car wash once and it was not that great. They took too long with my car and didnt even do a good job. The prices were reasonable but not what I expected. The employees were friendly and they have a tv for you to watch as you wait.

Really good car wash in Glendale. Drive up and they do the rest - complete with hand dry. There is dry cleaning service on site so you can drop off while get a car wash. A little deli and icecream bar for a snack while the wash is going on. Nice big flat screen TV to watch while you wait. They also have a Tuesday special. Reasonable prices overall.

PROS:
CONS: can be a bit busy across the lunch hour
