Chalard's auto repair is the best! On my way to work, I got a call from home that my car had leaked fluid all over the driveway. I was told my car was not safe to drive since we didn't know if it was brake fluid or power steering or oil so I had to take it to a mechanic ASAP. I found Chalards on yelp with great reviews, so I called. He doesn't take walk ins, but since I called in the morning before 8am and explained that it was a bit of an emergency, he said I could bring my car in if I was able to leave it all day. I did that and decided to just pick it up after work. Well it turns out that my oil filter was cracked and was spilling oil all over the place. I had just gotten my oil changed at Jiffy Lube the week before so I was confused. Turns out the idiots at jiffy lube screwed the oil filter back on with a wrench instead of by hand, cracking the filter in the process. Because of their incompetence, I lost over half the oil in my car. If I hadn't taken my car in that morning, the lack of oil could have killed the engine in my car. Chalards was very straight to the point and wasn't trying to trick me or overcharge - he replaced the filter and refilled my oil for just $20! He is seriously amazing and I will always take my car here from now on. Moral of the story - Chalards is the BEST place to go (just call ahead first) and NEVER GO TO JIFFY LUBE EVER AGAIN... They'll ruin your car.

Came here to fix my girlfriends brakes which were pretty much shot. Although he didn't take walk-ins, he was kind enough to fit us in as we did not live in the area, despite having a full schedule. Fixed the rotors, put on new brake pads and gave us a very reasonable price for what was done. So glad to have my girlfriend safe and worry-free that her brakes will fail at any moment!

He's a real old school small town mechanic who won't dick you over. He cares about the cars and less about scamming you.

I think what amazed me and impressed me enough to try Chalard's Auto Repair was their rating here on Yelp, I mean a 5 STAR RATING for an Auto Mechanic? Could it be possible? It is when you're talking about this place. When I needed rear brakes and a fuel filter and everyone elses estimates seemed to be way over-inflated, I decided to stop by Chalard's - and I am SO GLAD I did. Everything you've read from other 5 Star Reviewers who have called him an "excellent" and "honest" mechanic with "fair" and "reasonable" prices is absolutely true. Several other mechanics I had visited first tried to tell me that certain things were wrong with my car and needed to be repaired or replaced but I already knew better and so when I asked Chalard about repairing those items he honestly said "You don't need it." When he tried tightening an upper radiator hose to stop a very small leak and it didn't work he discovered a tiny pinhole in the radiator where the hose was fitting. Chalard patched the hole NO CHARGE at the time he did the other work I needed. This is really a classically GREAT mechanic supervising other great mechanics in his repair shop and it would benefit other Auto Repair shops everywhere to look at Chalard's as the BENCHMARK role model for their own work and ethics standards. ;)

Chalard's is excellent. I recently moved to the LA area all the way from New York and brought my car with me. Within a month of being here, my fuel pump failed and I had to have AAA come save me. They brought me to Rocky's Commercial Auto, because it was AAA approved, who fixed it for a pretty penny. They also informed me that I needed my front wheel bearings replaced and they could do so for just $550. I couldn't afford that so I went online and found Chalard's. I went there based on only the reviews because I'm new and don't know a lot of people in the area anyway. He agreed my problem was the wheel bearings and said to come back in two days so he could order the part. Sure enough, I dropped it off this morning and within two hours he called and said my car was ready. The bill came to $128. I was so surprised! He's truly an honest and fair man, which is rare out in LA & in the auto industry. My car runs like new and I couldn't be happier. I won't go anywhere else for as long as I'm in LA.

Not very outgoing guy, but a great mechanic at a fair price. Knows what he's doing.

Might be the grumpiest mechanic I know, but his work is honest, excellent and very reasonable. I started going to him 15 years ago and have referred him every person I know. And they all still go to him. Even when I lived 40 miles away, he was my go to.

I found Chalard's based on these great reviews, and he totally lived up to them. I told him the problem and that I couldn't pay him until Friday, and he went ahead and fixed my car anyway today and only charged me $35. I'm pretty sure that means he didn't charge me for labor, or charged so little I just can't tell, or didn't mark up on the part much at all. What a great guy and what a great local business. I've been spreading the word all day to my co-workers, I'm so happy!

My air conditioner recently went out and not only did they fix my ac... I needed a new air compressor and I was only charged $230. That's the cheapest my car has ever been fixed and on top of that I got new equipment. The service is great!!

I'm female and this is the only place ill go. It's nice to find someone I trust to look at my car. To the few people that gave this place anything less than 5 stars...maybe the problem was YOU :) This place rocks! This is coming from a girl who learned to change her own oil and belts because I've been ripped off so many times. *****INFO****Don't call, just go by. Chalard isn't going to tell you what he "thinks" is wrong..he needs to see your car for a proper diagnosis. Plan on leaving your car and having someone take you home. He will call you later that day or the following morning/afternoon. I've taken my car during super busy times but still had it back the same day or following day. You can trust Chalard's.
