Walk-ins and drop-offs welcome

These guys charge two to three times as much as other shops for the same work. Then they whine and moan when you post your disgust online. Don't get me wrong, it is the same work. I called the FORD DEALERSHIP in Glendale, and they quoted me price far lower than this place, for the same part and the same labor. So I went to a place in the valley who fixed my car for a third of the price quoted me at FUNK. Go have your car fixed here if you are either rich or stupid, or both. Otherwise shop around.

I came here because it's nearby, and the ratings and reviews were amazing (the last Saturday of July)... unfortunately, I left this shop without giving them business and feeling a little offended. I needed a smog check but the check-engine light was on, which I knew meant it wouldn't pass. The manager/owner, at least he acted like it, plugged in a machine to test it and it came up with some code. He then told me that it would cost $600 to get the car checked on top of whatever work that was needed to be done. I guess I looked confused upon hearing that because he proceeded to say "I need to pay my man to find out what's wrong with it. So it's $600 for that labor then when I tell you what's wrong you can decide whether or not you have the additional money to get it fixed." Excuse me? I know it's an older car and me not wanting to pay you $600 to tell me what's wrong with it does not mean I don't have money. It definitely sounded like he was just discouraging me and that he didn't need my business. So, fine, I left. I then googled the code that came up and saw right away a forum for the exact same code for the exact same make/model of car, i.e. didn't sound like a complicated code/issue to "try to figure out". I'm no mechanic, of course, so I just drove down Melrose to the next auto shop, and they asked me to leave the car so they could look at it. They called me back to tell me it was the EGR valve (a very common car repair issue!) and how much the part was and the labor for it (without insinuating that I would think it was a lot of money even though it probably was for an EGR valve replacement - $500 - but, you see, I do have money). And, this is how car shops work in my experience! I don't know why I had a different experience here at Funk Brothers especially in light of all the high ratings and glowing reviews. Maybe they don't service non-high-end cars, or don't care for my measly $500 for a simple EGR valve-replacement job.

**I'm only writing 4 stars, because when I write 5 it disappears*** This place deserves 10 stars. Honesty and integrity is an absolute must when someone like me (who knows nothing about cars) needs something fixed. I went to Funk Brothers for an issue - the owner could have done the job and made about $300...but he made me aware that there was a recall for this make of my car (different model - bu there was a chance my model could be on the list too). While I was still at Funk Brothers I called the dealership I bought it from. I called my dealership - great news - my model also had the recall for the issue too.....and then they proceeded to tell me it would cost about $300 to do it. (Not my definition of a recall)...I told Hovig, the owner of Funk Brothers - and he told me to call another dealer and even gave me the name of the service representative to ask for. The representative set me up for an appointment and said all of the costs would be covered....thankfully I have Funk Brothers to trust (and save me $300) - I can't say enough good things about them.

I came in for a smog check, but they didn't provide the type of check that I needed. Instead of helping me find a station that provided the service I needed, they very rudely turned me away and said it would be a conflict of interest for them to recommend someone. How is it a conflict of interest if you don't even provide the necessary service? How annoying.

Terrific service.Helpful and courteous. I had a problem with my car air conditioning. They fixed it so quickly that they did not charge. It was a marvelous gesture. As a result, they will get all my car business.

I can't recommend this place enough. As a female new to Los Angeles, I relied on yelp to find friendly and fair professionals to deal with not one but TWO issues that have come up for my Boxster in the past month. I have a hard time trusting anyone with her and miss my mechanic from up north, so I was hesitant to try any place new. However, Hovik and his team are truly the best kind of business men-- honest, competitively priced, efficient , kind and helpful. I appreciate them so much!!

Still going strong! I continue to be impressed by their awesome service! I'll never go anywhere else in LA. :)

This is the best auto shop in town, I've had my Cadillac repaired here a few times and every time they have done a great job. Hovig is the man to talk to!! He is a cool guy and knows everything about any car and is very helpful. Defiantly a shop you should consider going to.

Thankfully I finally got fed up with the dealership mechanics I'd been going to since I moved here. After searcing around online, this morning I brought my BMW in after the engine light went on. Funk bros. got it back to me by the end of the day. Clean facilities, a pleasure to give them my business.

Thank you !
