Not-A-Happy-Camper........... I was referred to Modestis Independent Repair in Culver City, CA by AAA, bad suggestion on their part. I specifically asked AAA if this Auto Mechanic service (Infiniti's) & their response was yes. I had my SUV

Hi. I got an Acura a few years ago and went looking for an independent mechanic since dealerships always seem to be so expensive. I found Modesti's online and since they got a good rating I went in for an oil change. I had a few minor quirks with my car - it was used - like the rear view mirror didn't seem to dim properly at night, the light in the clock was out, stuff like that. So I asked for an esitmate. The estimate took them several hours and they seemed kind of pissed off when I didn't want to get the work done just then.

Next time I went in for an oil change I told them that I wanted to get the mirror replaced. When they called me several hours later to let me know the car was ready they hadn't done the mirror. They did send me a card in the mail asking me how my experience was. I filled it out but no one ever got back to me.

Next few times I went in I ffelt like I had to argue with them to do the work on my car, the light bulb, the mirror, like they still resented my not getting it done the first time. Maybe just me being oversensitive, but still.

Anyway, I got my oil changed at a dealership, which recommended some major work. I decided to price it out. So I called Modesti's, a place that says they specialize in Acura's. They said they'd call me back with an estimate. Three days later, still no call back. So I called them back. Danny, the service writer, the guy that I always deal with, said he had the estimate at his desk, which must be all of about 5 feet away from the front and that he'd call me as soon as he got back to his desk. He never called back and it's been more than a couple days.

I called another couple of independents. One doesn't specialize on Acura's but gave me a rough estimate which is very close to the estimate from the other place which does. Both of them gave me an estimate right then.

Pros: Honest, clean

Cons: Unresponsive and kind of weird

I have been a customer for several years, and have referred many friends. The service is always courteous, friendly and trustworthy. I never have felt pressured to do repairs, on the contrary. My car gets "checked up" at oil change time, and I am given a written record, and notes on upcoming needed services or possible future problems. This is very helpful, as it allows me to plan ahead. Modesti's is clean and inviting, and I always appreciate being recognized when I call, even after several months. The shuttle is a free service. Most of all, I trust that both advice and repairs come with integrity and quality. They are AAA approved.
P.S. I love the Hawaiian decor and free drinks too!

John and his staff are the best. The shop is clean and they have a shuttle they will take you where you need to be and pick you up. I have had my car serviced here several times and they have never made unnecessary recommendations like the dealer. Their prices are fair. I highly recommend Modesti's.

The staff at Modesti's are friendly and professional. We have been going to them for 5 years and have always been very pleased with their service. We never have to worry about our cars when we take them to Modesti's. They only give you the necessary service and never try to sell you anything you don't need. We highly recommend them.

Great family business. They have a shuttle that will take you home and pick you up when your car is ready. I was very satisfied with the work they did to my car. The staff is SUPER NICE AND FUNNY! As a young lady, I don't know much about cars; therefore it's hard to find a shop that will not rip you off. Modesti's staff explained in detail exactly what they were going to be doing to my car. You can trust them! They will not let you down. They also send you coupons for different services. So you can save some money too!

Just got my car back from them and they took care of everything I asked. the shop is clean and they were very attentive. They even dropped me off and picked me up. Prices seemed really good although I only had a tune-up and a few other little things done.
