A ‘Piece of Mind’ Courtesy Inspection

Auto Repair Consumer Review Margret Ostlund | All Car SpecialistsPaul with loyal customer Margret Ostlund.  Margret and her family have been using All-Car Specialists since the 1980’s.  Paul was helping Margret with a recall issue that stated a possible engine fire from an oil leak. Instead of having Margaret drive around worrying about something happening to her car and safety, Paul inspected it for leaks and found no signs of oil. All Car Specialists has helped many people identify warranty issues that are free of charge through the dealer networks and manufacturer recalls. Being proactive about service and recalls have kept Margret’s car trouble free for 15 years.  
“Thanks Margaret to you and your entire family for your years of loyal and trusting patronage!!!”

– Paul Brow

Years of Dedicated Patronage from Asher and Son’s Company

Auto Repair Consumer Review Jim Asher | All Car SpecialistsPaul Brow with long time customer and friend, Jim Asher of Asher and Son’s Utility Construction and Specialty Truck Company.  Al Asher and Son’s cannot afford to have one of his rentals break down!  His secret to success is SERVICE — It has been said that he over services them.  Most of the vehicles owned are over 8 years old.  Al Asher and Sons have their own mechanics but they use All-Car Specialists for the difficult Electrical and mechanical problems that they run across.  All Car Specialists also services Jim’s personal vehicles which is a great complement due to the amount of choices that he has for car service.
“Thanks for your years of loyal service and the ‘cool’ photo!” –

I have been a customer here since 1989. He has kept all of my cars in tip-top shape. I have owned Audi’s, Volkswagen’s, Honda’s, Chevy’s and Fords. Paul is a great mechanic and he runs a great shop. They are honest and they will work until they get to the bottom of an issue. I no longer live in the area but I go out of my way to bring my cars here. These guys are FABULOUS!!  -Jeffrey B.. – Pasadena, CA, Yelp Review – 6/29/2015

“Good, honest communication, straightforward repairs at honest prices and friendly service.  Appreciate your local mechanic.  They can get your car running the right way when a non-all-car specialist tweaks it.”  -Adam B. – Alhambra, CA, Yelp Review – 5/22/2015

“All Car Specialists always does a great job with my car. Not only do they do my services but they let me know what to keep an eye on in the future so I can plan for it instead of being strapped one time. Great place to bring your car!”  Judy’s Book Review Guest

Great Quality service I was recommended to All Car Specialists. Although a far drive, I was going past there to go on a trip so I could drop my car off.  They fixed everything that was wrong and my brakes felt great again.  -Colin J. at Customer Lobby

“Great service at All Car!  I have found this shop recently because the shops in my area are difficult to work with. All Car always explains what’s wrong, can show me, and suggest how to keep my car running at its best. I trust the mechanics there which is always my number one concern. The other good thing is they do everything so I don’t need to drive around town to get different services. Pros: Very helpful, great technicians, my car feels much smoother. Cons: Far drive for me, but worth it.”  surfin 247 at CitySearch

“I have been going exclusively to Paul Brow for my auto service needs for over 40 years. That’s right 40 years. Paul started working out of his father’s garage when he was 14 or 15 years old. He has been very successful ever since. He is a first-rate mechanic, honest (rare in this profession), hardworking, pays attention to detail, pro-active in the community (teaches auto mechanics at the local College), good businessman, always learning and striving to be better. Most important is the service you get. He treats you with respect and gets you in and out in a timely matter and at a fair price. I always recommend All-Car Specialists. “ -Brad Reaume, 2011-09-21, Pasadena

“Dear friends at All-Car Specialists, I want to say that your Repair shop made me feel special with your honest ways and friendly people. I will never take my car to the dealer again. Thanks again and I will “pass the word” to my friends.”  -Virginia M., Service Bulletins Saved, 2009-03-19

How a little information from All Car Specialists saved a customer money and the dealership did the maintenance for free!

“Dear Paul: Just a short note to let you know that the power control module in my 1989 Chrysler New Yorker was replaced by the Dealer without any cost. Although my warranty expired a year ago, the 1981 service bulletin that you could find helped establish that I indeed had a problem of my car stalling at slow speeds. ÂSince I brought the car in 1989, I had taken it to at least three Chrysler Dealers prior to taking it to your company. Each dealership failed to fix the problem and merely wrote it off as being an intermittent problem. I was not until you provided me with the service bulletin and along with all my prior service receipts that I was able to establish to the Dealer that I truly had a problem and that it should be fixed under warranty. When I first entered your company’s waiting area I noticed there were a lot of thank you letters. I thought to myself sure, another gimmick probably relatives writing the letter’s. Well, you can add my thank you letter to your collection”  -Service Bulletins Saved Me, 2007-05-24

“Gentlemen: I am of many thousands of single women who are self-supporting and have to rely on their own resources to manage their lives. One of the greatest challenges for women are when their car breaks down on the road. This happened to me recently. I live in Irvine and have taken my car to All-Car Specialist for maintenance for years. I do this because Paul is honest, professional and very skilled in his trade. I know that when I leave there, my car is in the best running order it can be. When the Alternator failed I could not go to All-Car for help. I was forced to make a choice Locally and I decided that I should have the car towed to Tuttle Click Ford in Irvine. I had to work that day and it made the best sense because it was close to home and work. I was a terrible mistake. Service To the customer has no priority. I had to rent a car to go to work and the rental was empty. I waited from 9 am to 4 pm for the estimate of $1063.00 for a new alternator to be installed and it might be done in 2 days time.

I called Paul at that point for advice and he resolved my problem at once. He sent a tow truck to pick up my car and me at 9 am in Irvine. The driver from Dixson Tow Service was excellent and most helpful. He Took me to All Car, the alternator was replaced at a cost of $355 and Paul had me on the road by 3:00 pm.  I find it very difficult to express my gratitude to Paul for the service and genuine caring he provides. He has the ability to treat each customer as though he had no others. It is an amazing thing to observe and to be a part of.  Because of this experience, I will be the proud owner of an AAA extended mileage service card. I will never take my car anywhere else but All-Car Specialist for service or repair.”
