As I pulled out of the parking lot of the Ocean Ranch shopping center, I saw smoke coming from under my hood! Very concerned of what could have happened so quickly, I immediately pulled over. I did not know who to call, since my mechanic who was working from home recently began work at a dealership and was unavailable. Luckily, I looked up nearby mechanics using the internet on my phone and called Dana Point Foreign Car. Tom, the owner, answered and when I told him what happened and that I don't have AAA, he offered to send someone over to check it out! I have not come across anyone else so kind since I moved from the South! One of the mechanics came to the parking lot where I was and topped my car off with coolant. Then I followed him back to the shop, where they quickly determined the hose clamp had broken. They fixed my car right away, they were helpful and honest, and pleasant to work with. Being a woman and not knowing much about cars, I typically am skeptical of mechanics and being overcharged, but I think they are honest and trustworthy. I will definitely be going back and recommending to friends.

My husband uses this garage for his old MG, which isn't easy to get parts for. They have always been very above board, fixed his problems and were honest when they didn't think they were the right place or he could buy a part elsewhere cheaper. I really respect them.
