A truly great place to take your car for service, I have been taking my cars here for almost 15 years and the reason why I have kept coming back is because Jeff and Terrie's shop is a one of a kind shop. The entire staff displays what I am looking for in a auto shop and that is honesty, integrity and quality. You will not find any other shop that will do all this for you out there. I am proud to be a LOYAL CUSTOMER and I am honored to call Jeff and Terrie friends. I have recommended Arcadia Ultimate to everyone I know that owns Hondas and will continue to do so. Keep up the great work you guys! - John S.
I am so thankful to have found Arcadia Automotive! I have had great service. Jeff is always patient and fair. He takes the time to answer questions and research options. It means everything to me to me to have someone that I trust to take my car to! - Emily W.
There seems to be a common misconception among many that if you have an aftermarket/extended warranty, that your car, truck, SUV or Jeep must be taken to a dealership. This is not true. Non-dealership / Independent Automotive repair shops can service and repair your new or UNDER WARRANTY/EXTENDED WARRANTY. As a positive, at our shop you can get fast service and work with highly trained technicians! We'd love to take care of your vehicle for you and can do so right here at our automotive shop. Repairs by highly rated and trained automotive technicians with dealer rated diagnostic tools, at BETTER PRICING by a shop that knows you!
It is a law that independent automotive repairs shops can maintain and service your warranty. All consumers are protected by the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, that is enforced by Federal Trade Commission (FTC). It prohibits a manufacturer from voiding the new vehicles warranty or a vehicles extended warranty because service was performed by a Non-Dealer/Independent Repair shop.
Per the FTC, “It's illegal for a dealer to deny your warranty coverage simply because you had warranty work or routine maintenance or repairs performed by our automotive shop. Routine maintenance can include anything from oil changes, tire rotations and belt replacement, to fluid checks, flushes, new brake pads and inspections.” It is also important to note that the “Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act makes it illegal for a company to void your warranty or deny coverage under the warranty for the simple cause that you used an aftermarket or recycled part.”
One of the major perks to bringing your vehicle to an independent repair shop is the ability to make your money go further. Many times, warranties will have a limit or a deductible. Our goal is to make your warranty work for you.
Lastly, If you are on the fence about whether or not to purchase an AFTERMARKET or EXTENDED warranty. We suggest opening a savings account for your car and putting back money for possible breakdowns. While warranties are great the limitations can sometimes outweigh the benefits.
Whichever option you may choose we will be there for you every step of the way! We look forward to taking care of your new or under extended/aftermarket warranty, car, truck, SUV or Jeep right here. Give us a call today!
Like other reviews say - great, honest shop. Thanks Jeff! - Abraham J.
Perfect service, fair and honest. No need to go anywhere else. Very professional! We take our Hondas and Toyotas to them. They always accommodate us, even in emergency situations. It good to support small businesses such as this one and I can't recommend them highly enough. - Mary M.
You will never find a better resource for car maintenance than this establishment. You can forget all of those memories of trepidation taking your vehicle in for repair by patronizing this shop. I have had my cars under Jeff/staff' care for at least 15 years. Even though I retired way out near Palm Springs, I didn't hesitate a moment about driving in several miles to continue having my car serviced at Arcadia Ultimate. Jeff/staff give really accurate estimates of any repairs they suggest. Further, they provide you valuable timelines about future repairs that will be important to budget and schedule. I've been conned in the past, overcharged, and had used and/or unnecessary parts installed in previous cars I owned. I will NEVER have to worry about that again now that I can turn over my car care to Arcadia Ultimate Automotive. Do yourself a favor and give them a try.You will be as grateful as I am that indeed, honest, professional mechanics exist right here in Southern California. - Johanna B.
