If you don't mind going to Midway City, which is near the 405 and Beach Blvd. in the Huntington Beach area, Dynamic Auto Services is excellent. 724.899.2939

I hope the area code "724" you've stated above is a typo -- shouldn't it be 714 area code??

Yeah, sorry. It's 714.

Mize, I don't work for Dynamic, so I cannot quote their hourly rate. They've always been more than fair to me on parts and labor. Call Son at 714.899.2939. He'll treat you right.

Try "International Auto Repair" on the corner of Broadway and Sichel st (In L.A) and ask for a guy named "Ralph" he specializes in Toyotas,Nissans and Hondas...Tell them that "Joel" (That's me) sent you and he may hook you up.

Unhappy Mechanic in LA

Hey I just bought a used 95 lexus sc300 and just replaced the battery. Whenever I drive it in the morning, the engine dies out and the check engine light, battery light, and oil light come on. I have to turn off the car and restart it; it does this about 3-5 times before it runs fine the entire day. I was wondering if anyone has experienced problems like these before? I'm so frustrated because I just bought the dang thing!

Any feedback is great feedback...also if you know of a great mechanic to take it to, to fix the problem. Thanks!

Ask for Tho and tell them that Jerry with a red SC300 sent you. He has done everything on my car from oil changes to a full on 90k service for the longest. He also have many satisfied customers on this forum and best of all his prices are the lowest as well.

Is Tho a certified Toyo mechanic too? I would guess that most Lexus techs are also Toyo certified too, no? I need to get my GF's Corolla serviced big time

I know it's been awhile, but what was the problem/s and who did the repair work?
