    Consistent, reliable service

    By Verified Customer in Northridge, CA

    AI continues to provide consistent and reliable service for maintenance as well as any additional repairs required for both of my vehicles. Very trustworthy as they are honest about what service is required and do not try to find additional items which would inflate the charges incurred. When additional service may be required outside of the normal maintenance items the explanation is clear and emphasizes potential safety concerns which need to be addressed. The level of competence in completing all of the work required is consistently at the highest standard.

    Automotive instincts review, they are the best

    By JOYCE R. in Van Nuys, CA

    I have been a customer of Automotive Instincts for more than 25+ years. They are the best. Unlike dealerships, they do not “push work”. For about the last 6+ months, they have been monitoring a potential $500 repair, and they keep telling me, it’s fine, we’ll check on it next time you come in, unlike dealerships who say “it can go out anytime”. In 25+ years, every repair was done right the first time. Gary

    I always get excellent service!

    By BARBARA O. in Northridge, CA

    When ever I go to Automotive Instincts I am sure that my car will receive a thorough check-up. If there is any item that needs service I am told when I need to replace/repair the part. Sometimes they watch an item and let me know when the time has arrived to repair. They have been my mechanics for 25 years.

    I’m back!

    By BOB/DOREEN W. in Sylmar, CA

    My CRV is just out of warranty so I left the dealership & returned to my fav car maintenance shop, Automotive Instincts. And I’m back with my fav maintenance guys — Steve & Al. I trust them implicitly. My husband & I started with Steve in 1974. They maintained my prior car, an Accord, for 16 years! It felt so good to be back in their shop. There is no end to the wit & conversation from Al & others while I lounged with other customers in their waiting room. And I felt so relaxed as I drove away from the shop knowing they carefully examined the car & tweaked what was necessary to improve & prolong the life of my car. Thanks!

    The PrePurchase check is a super idea & I felt better making a change-0-vehicle after the AutoInsts guys did a look-see. This is The Best place to bring your car; they always use quality parts. AutoInsts are My Guys.

    By RICK B. in Van Nuys, CA

    My old mechanic retired to exotic locals leaving me in the capable hands of Al Renton and Automotive Instincts. They diagnosed my problem and informed me of the actual and possible costs and preformed the work to my satisfaction. I recommend them.
