Seiko's Auto Service Inc.
**JAPANESE-SPEAKING (Bilingual in English & Japanese)**Seiko specializes in Japanese vehicles. Especially the inner workings of Toyota and Lexus; and their hybrids.I moved to California in February and was in desperate need for a good mechanic as well as a new car. I originally fell upon DTM Auto Salon in Pasadena. Dan, the owner, specifies in BMWs and European vehicles but referred me to "a young, super JDM mechanic who does excellent work and specializes in Japanese vehicles." (If you have Euro needs, please check out Dan @ DTM Auto Salon - super nice guy and really clean work). He gave me Seiko's card and sent me on my way.Since then, I have brought Seiko a 2006 Honda S2000, a 1990 Nissan 240SX and my boyfriend's 2014 Scion FR-S. Though the S2K and the FR-S only undergo minor maintenance, the 240 was a wreck (I think that may even be an understatement. lol). Seiko is patient & thorough. He went over all of the things that were wrong with my vehicle, and helped me to prioritize what we should attack first (in order of importance, and cost effectiveness).In the short time I have known him, Seiko has fixed the following on my 240:1. Electrical issue with all of my lights (brake lights, headlights, reverse lights, turn signals, etc.) since the previous owner had tinkered with it and caused all of them to turn on simultaneously or not work at all;2. Suspension;3. Transmission Noise Issues;4. Power Steering; and5. Motor Swap (camshaft split on my original motor because previous owner tried to rebuild it and failed miserably). Seiko saved me from being carless and catching the bus. We are currently working on my exhaust (previous owner welded one on that is RIDICULOUSLY loud); and we are also looking for parts so that I can fix my air conditioning. Keep in mind, my vehicle is 25 years old and some parts are becoming hard to come by. lol.Eventually, I would like to fix a lot of other little things here and there (I apologize in advance to Seiko for bothering him).Seiko does an amazing job from start to finish. I appreciate that he takes the time to walk you through the process and answer any questions along the way. His shop is clean and he is very professional. His paperwork is always in check in case you need to reference it later. I would definitely recommend Seiko's Auto Service Inc. to anyone. Even if your car is running with no mechanical difficulties, it is good to perform routine maintenance and Seiko would be more than happy to do those as well. If it weren't for Seiko, I would be less two vehicles (crashed the first one, bought a lemon as the second) and catching the bus. I am eternally grateful for his hard-work and attention to detail. Thank you so much, Seiko.For any of your automobile needs, make sure you contact Seiko's Auto Service Inc..Hardworking, reliable, trustworthy & an extremely gifted Master Technician. Wouldn't trust anyone else with my cars (and trust me, I love my cars). Check out his website or give him a call. That reminds me, we gotta get an oil change for the FR-S soon. lol. But yeah... this place is legit! *two thumbs up!* ^___^
