I was visiting Burbank from Santa Barbara, had a radiator leak, over-heated, blew a head gasket. Had it towed to Studio Auto Care. For 5 and half weeks, I heard "...just give me 20 more minutes, I have it ready." He charged me for new radiator, but "patched" the original. Put the whole engine back wrong; stole money, a credit card, a new lunch box, and a silver heart off my key chain; charged me $2,000!! I drove back to SB, with the "check engine light" on, to be told by MY mechanic that I had an oil leak, radiator leak, and the truck was reassembled wrong, that he (Fred) was clueless has to how to fix my truck, AND I was royally ripped off!! This place deserves NO stars but for review to work, you need a minimum of one! Also, when a friend from the area went to check the progress of my vehicle, the mechanic was being handcuffed and arrested because of another irate customer!! Stay away!
