Jim Matson Automotive, Inc.

Automotive Mechanic

Make no mistake about it: The Allah of auto parts resides here - never mind that it doesn't look like what you imagined heaven to be. Enter the office and glance around: water cooler, cluttered desk, pictures of Matson's last vacation, faithful dog, and Matson in a bathing suit. Amid the mechanic's paradise, you sit before Matson and tell him of your automotive troubles. He carefully records the details into his small spiral notebook and nods. With that you slip away, knowing you car is in his competent hands. Or maybe you borrow one of the existential novels that Matson occasionally lends to his dearest friends. Or maybe you just sit transfixed as he performed his healing magic right before your eyes. Matson will never make up a problem or even encourage you to get work you don't need -- in fact, he will often suggest an alternative solution that will cost you nothing. Read more

    These guys are the best. Amazing pricing for repairs on my Subaru - their up front quote was the best I could find in all of LA and the valley even after thorough research and pricing out/leveraging quotes against other repair places and my local dealership.

    Jim and all of his employees are super friendly and down to earth without sacrificing professionalism. All repairs were done super fast, and they gave me a one year warranty on their work.

    I can't possibly recommend these guys enough.

    A trustworthy mechanic. Accommodates working people! I can deliver my car early with AAA and pick up after they close! My sister introduced this place to me as she's been coming here for a decade

    I took my 03 PT Cruiser in for some cooling system work and they pointed out everything that's needed to be done, and it was fixed quickly and the cost was reasonable.

    I would rather support a local business, and I'm a happy customer and will definitely be going there again.

    I went to Jim Matson Auto last week to have my 2001 Honda Accord breaks checked, among a list of other imperative services. Jim and Danny were both wonderful to work with and were kind enough to discuss the repair terms I didn't understand with my father over the phone (who doesn't live in California). My car was in and out in one day and is now running better than the day I bought her. I will be back for all of my automotive needs and would highly recommend their business.
