I love Dr. Simon at the cat doctors! After years of bad vet experiences I'm happy to have found a great one!

Auto Depot is the best body shop. I've had my car repaired there on a couple of occasions, and I couldn't have been happier with the results. I was rear-ended on one occasion and Champion took great care of me. Had my car back in a matter of days, and not weeks like some places. Not only does the shop staff know what they are talking about, they back it up. Professional, reliable, fast, honest and personable. The only shop I'd recommend for mechanic work and auto body repair.

Champion is one of the those rare places that combines great work, excellent pricing, and good fun. They don't even have a website because they don't need one. Clients come from mechanic referrals and personal recommendations, like this one. Definitely recommend.

They finished my car very quickly, which I appreciate because I was on a time crunch. They were very accommodating and realized that it was imperative that my car be up and running asap! Thanks for all the hard work Champion!

Definitely as good as it gets. The guys at Champion Auto Body Repair are the best. They provide clear details on the work expected and where they can save you money. Their estimate came in over a thousand less than dealer's. With the professional approach, quality work, and guarantees, you can't find a better place to have your car fixed up. If I ever need this kind of service again, I know exactly where to go.

From start to finish, I was kept in the loop and treated as if I was not just a customer but a friend. Introduce by the owner, The guys informed me of the whole process, when the adjusters came, what the adjusters saw, when my car would start being fixed, when my car was almost finished, and when to pick up my car. Nothing less than a world class experience! Not to mention, they washed, polished, and vacuumed my car to like-new status!

I was very impressed at the work these guys did on my car. I couldn't believe it was my actual car when I got it back because it looked so good; pristine in fact. Very, VERY happy right now!!!

After I got my car back, I just said ""sh*t."" First, He replaced the body part that is still usable and fixable and said ""everything is ok. insurance will pay anyway. You don't pay nothing."" He is really unkind and greedy for money. I asked him to get back my original part he took off because its still usable and my insurance paid for new replacement. He was piss off and saying ""are you doubting me??"" I was like ""WTH I just wanna my stuff back."" He eventually said ok , but when I went there to pick up my car, he changed his mind and said "" I can't give the part back to you because bla bla (I don't understand his reason)"" The funny thing is that I saw a bunch of leaflet on his table, that he is selling used auto body parts. I guess my auto part will be sold and go into his pocket.\r
\r
So, here is the highlight.\r
\r
1. He is so unkind and greedy for money\r
2. He replaces the auto part that is still usable and reparable and he keeps the part he takes off. I guess he sells it\r
3. awful jobs and high cost.

Based in part of the prior good review I allows Champion to fix my car, that was a BIG mistake. Dennis turned on the charm to get me to bring my car into his shop, but once it was there it turned into a nightmare. He tried to get my insurance to pay for parts and repairs my car did not need. Later when I spoke others about my bad experince with this shop I was told about a newpaper clipping that was about body shop fraud in the area.\r
\r
I found the artice on the internet below is a snippet from the Sept 10, 1998 issue fo the San Jose Mercury news:\r
\r
The Santa Clara County District Attorney's Office on Wednesday announced the arrest of six South Bay body shop operators on charges of felony insurance fraud, alleging they swindled insurers out of nearly $30,000 for phony parts and repair jobs.Charges in the case resulted from an undercover investigation mounted by the county district attorney's office, the Department of Consumer Affairs and the Bureau of Automotive Repair, prompted by numerous complaints from vehicle owners and reports from insurance firms that they were receiving claims for non-existent parts and labor.During the probe of the six shops, the bureau reinspected a dozen consumer vehicles and conducted 11 undercover operations and determined that car owners, insurers and the bureau paid nearly $67,000 for parts and repair work, said Steven Giorgi, chief of Consumer Affairs' enforcement division. Of that amount, more than $29,000 was allegedly for non-existent parts and repairs.\r
\r
The body shops and owners accused of falsifying the insurance claims are DENNIS KIM OF CHAMPION AUTO BODY AND REPAIR in Santa Clara; inh Huu Nguyen of C&M Auto Body; Loc Phung Ha of Seng Hong Auto Body; and Insoon Kim of 9th Street Auto Body\r
\r
I wish I knew this before I brought my car there... I dont know how he can still be in business after being arrested for fraud\r
\r
Save yourself a headace and DONT BRING YOUR CAR HERE!!!

Pros: The owner promised the world to get my business

Cons: All the promises were broken, as he did a horrible job fixing my car

.

The second I dropped off my car at Champion Autobody I was treated great. Dennis helped me with the paperwork and even arranged for the rental car company to pick me up. He even offered to give me a ride home if I wanted one. The work performed was great and done on time like promised. You need to go see this shop, it is HUGE. I am glad I had my car repaired here and will not hesitate to return the next time I get in an accident. Oh yeah did I say it was conveniently located on El Camino Real, that was a plus. Hope this helps.
