I bought a CR-V from these guys based on Honda's excellent reputation for reliability. Boy, do I regret it! I've owned the car nine months and it's been in the shop six times! Twice to fix things THEIR service department BROKE. I'm absolutely furious that I'm making car payments on something I don't trust and I get a sick feeling in my stomach every time I look at the POS sitting in my driveway.
PROS: They're close to my house
CONS: I have to walk there because my car is broken
They acually have what you need when you need it! I've been frustrated with the lack of selection and organization at the other HDs (like the one on Alondra... feh!) and thought they did a much better job at this one. Stuff is stocked and located where you'd expect. The little things really do mean a lot.
I took my tubby tabby to see Dr. Horn at Orange Villa (on Saturday!) and was very pleased with the care she got. He called promptly with results from her blood work (on SUNDAY!) and answered all of my questions with patience and care. These folks are also very responsive to emergencies.
The vegan carrot cupcakes alone are worth the trip to the Westside. Viva Mani's!!
Dr. Griffin is the best Dermatologist I've seen. She knows her stuff and is exceedingly sensitive to her patients. The office staff is pretty cool, too.
A great whole food/organic grocer. They have some excellent prepared foods, as well as staples like Uncle Eddie's Vegan Cookies and Tofutti. They've got a wide selection of vitamins & homeopathic stuff, and organic wines. Gorgeous produce.
Excellent coffee and my vegan heart leaps that they have soy milk to put in it. Excellent menu with lots of yummy stuff for omnivores and many vegetarian options. This is not your average coffee shop. Trendy atmosphere and open very late.
They're cheap and worth it. They have minimal services and their best classes (spinning, self defense) cost extra on top of your membership.
Moving is already a hassle, but these guys will make it worse. I made a reservation, they didn't have the truck. I got a smaller one than I really needed, waited FOREVER to get the thing out the door, and it barely ran. Call someone else. ANYBODY else.
These folks are a class act. They offer veterinary and boarding services for cats only, so no fights with Fido when you go in for a visit. They have evening hours for working people, too. I was just so impressed with their competence and sensitivity. They're pricey, but offer packages of vaccinations and wellcare that can save you $$.
