What Our Customers Are Saying
What Great Service! Having just moved to Pasadena, I was in need of a new place to take my car and I know that finding an Aston Martin Specialist is diffucult…not to mention a good one. What a great stroke of luck this was! Friendly, personable, knowledgable staff, reasonable to work with me in terms of the costs, overall the experience was brilliant. I have found my new local shop for my car, on the first draw!
My second visit, great as always! Pasadena Motor Cars did it again! They provided me superior service at my convenience. I never like having to have work/maintenance done on my car, but they make it a painless process!
5 Starts! My Jaguar is a collectors item and it is very important to me. I don’t want just anyone working on it. I save time, money, and peace of mine of knowing the work is going to be done the wright way the first time.
Recommendation from a family member brought us to this shop. I was able to reach them online first, made an appointment, and they took care of every single thing we wanted and the cost was more than fair. The level of service was exceptional. Every person we interacted with was kind and helpful and we will go here again.
I've been taking my 2011 LR4 to these guys for a few years. They are very knowledgeable, friendly, fast and service Land Rovers for a fraction of the cost of the dealership. If you are looking for honest mechanics that can get the job done, this is the place!
Outstanding service. Owen and Aaron are expert mechanics and honest people. Highly recommended.
We went to the DMV to register the car in California, and we went to surrender our old license plates, and couldn't get the rear plate off to save our lives. We called Pasadena Motor Cars, asked if they could, and headed over that way (it's extremely close to the DMV). When we arrived, we walked in, explained the issue, and the mechanic backed the car into the garage and tried to get the license plate off. One of the screws ended up breaking (rusted badly), and most of it was stuck in the hole still. They put great effort into it, tried different approaches, and eventually got it fixed, and put the new plates on for us, and new screws. Overall took ~45 minutes.
Despite all the work needing done to get the screw removed, they didn't charge us a dime. They're also incredibly patient and kind. I also saw them working on a lot of other cars at the same time and helping one another and putting a lot of care into the vehicles. Would DEFINITELY recommend.
I posted a review for Pasadena Motor Cars back in 2013. This is a follow up to emphasize that IMHO they are not only some of the finest mechanics in the business, Owen and Aaron are also two of the finest PEOPLE you could ever have the pleasure of knowing. My wife says "You need to be able to hug your mechanic" ...in this case she's right. SO knowledgeable and scrupulous , they can diagnose the most obscure mechanical or electrical problems and fix them. They maintain a number of cars for us but our two "special needs" cars, older Jaguar Vanden Plas sedans, of course, are kept in perfect running order. I cannot recommend them highly enough. You will not be disappointed. Imagine: honest, tireless, meticulous, GENTLEMEN in the car repair business!
Aaron and Owen serviced both my cars for several years and provided outstanding service and honesty. Their shop has a good vibe and they're always looking out for their customers. When work wasn't necessary, they said so or gave me tips on how to go about some of it myself. The big jobs they handled professionally and timely and there were never any surprise costs at the end of the day.
If you're looking for expert honest mechanics, stop looking any further. These guys run a great shop!
I recently found Pasadena Motors from reviews on the net. I was thoroughly impressed with the work performed on my Jaguar and Honda Insight. Both Aaron and Owen were professional, knowledgeable and honest - I have already recommended them to my neighbors in South Pasadena. Job well done!
Was looking for an auto shop urgently to fix my car's brake lights and get back to DMV for my driving test. Asked if they will take long but I was AMAZED, they got it fixed less than 2 minutes! Great service! Will definitely be back again!
Transmission went out in my Toyota. Pasadena Motor Car came to the rescue again!! The fixed it quickly and was fairly priced. Work is top notch!!!
