After all these years, and all these times I never did, today I made a darn YELP account just so I could rate Chalard's Auto Repair as high as possible. I was told at multiple car repair shops that to find out why my 'check engine' light was on they would have to charge me $65 for a diagnostic, and I would have to leave the car for hours. Being a workin' lady in LA its hard for one to find the time if most places close at 6pm, not to mention getting one's self around this city without a car. Thank goodness for Chalard!! I went in on my lunch break and was told he would need the car for an hour. Only one hour? I was incredulous! But lo and behold, after an hour he had done a diagnostic, repaired the problem for me AND only charged me 20 bucks for the whole thing!! In a hot city full of thousands of unknown and ominous ghostly auto-body shops, I am so grateful for you help Chalard, I am already recommending you to all my pals. If you see a guy with a real big gap between his front teeth come into the shop soon, then thats because I sent him !
