The gas pump NEVER work properly. I can't comment on the mechanics, this review is for the terrible gas pumps that are at the station.

It's rare that I'll write a review about something as mundane as an oil change service but the service and overall experience was so good, I really felt like these folks deserved it.

Dave, the manager at this Chevron service station completely altered how I viewed auto repair shops / auto body shops. He’s incredibly knowledgeable, honest and affable. An absolute pleasure to do business with.

I am a student at UCI (just down the road from here) who drives a classic VW. One night on my way back from the beech my engine began to misfire, so I limped the car into the parking lot of this service station. After some quick inspection I decided that all the car needed was a set of spark plug wires. I ducked into the service station and the lady who was there overnight told me that no one would be in the shop until the next morning but that I could leave the car there overnight. She also gave me the owner's phone number so that I could call as soon as the shop opened the next morning. When I called the next morning and spoke to the owner he told me that he did not have a set of the parts I needed in stock and that his classic car mechanic would not be available to look at it or order the parts until the next morning. I told him that I was fine with that, and mentioned that if I had a chance to get the parts before his mechanic returned to work I would have a go at fixing it myself (which he said sounded like a good plan). Later that day, when I arrived with a set of spark plug wires someone came out of the shop to see what was going on. I explained the situation and former phone call, and he said that he didn't care what I had been told previously -- he was in charge at the moment, and he was either going to start looking at my car for $90 per hour right now, or have it impound. I was forced to call a tow truck in order to movie it five miles back to my apartment where I fixed it easily. Needles to say, I will not be returning to this service station -- the poor communication, rude staff, and lack of simple components all put up huge red flags.

My car was overheating and so I had no choice but to pull into this Service Station. I'm glad I did! Dave was closing up the shop but stayed late to help me. I got a very honest assessment and the work was finished first thing in the morning for a good price.
I'm usually very skeptical about using a different mechanic than my regular guy but I feel lucky to have encountered my problem right next to Dave's service station.
I highly recommend getting your next service done here.
