  • I am so confident in and grateful for Vasken and his incomparably trustworthy service that, in spite of a busy schedule involving frequent travel, I have willingly driven as much as two hours round trip from Hollywood to Hermosa each time I’ve needed any kind of service for my car over the past four years.

    Vasken was enthusiastically recommended to me by a business contact after I moved to LA in 2007. When I told the contact that Hermosa was too far from my home, he replied, “Make the trip; it’s worth it.” Ever since, no one else has touched my car for so much as an oil change.

    The thing that makes Doctor Auto Tech so extraordinary is the scrupulous integrity exhibited in both the quality of the staff’s work and the honesty with which they operate. Vasken has never once recommended service unless it’s been needed (in fact, he’s talked me out of spending money on repairs he’s deemed unnecessary).

    He is clear about needs and presents maintenance and/or repair options in layman’s terms, ensuring that the customer fully understands procedures and related costs before moving forward. My interest is in maintaining my car and its value in the most economic manner possible, and being able to trust an auto mechanic so strongly is a priceless commodity–especially in a town where cars are so vital to life and mobility.

    On top of all of this, Vasken’s entire staff at Doctor Auto Tech is invariably pleasant, articulate and professional. They take pride in their work (as well they should) and always exhibit sincere gratitude to the customer.

    I genuinely love this business, and it’s a pleasure to support it. On those periodic trips I make back and forth to Doctor Auto Tech, I pass a countless number of Vasken’s competitors–but it’s never occurred to me to go anywhere else. For as long as Vasken decides to stay open, it never will.

  • Always been ethical and honest about what they do. Never had any issues with these guys and I’ve been going there for quite some time now.

    Always treated me very well, and their prices are more than fair so I will continue to be a loyal customer.

  • DR.VASKEN IS AMAZING!!!! I would not go to any other place to fix my car. He knows his stuff.

    He first fixed minor parts with my VW Jetta and didn’t even charge me labor. I then was given a 2003 Mercedes C230 Kompressor and my handles were broken.

    He had the part in the next day after I gave him my serial number and did not keep my car. He was fast and proficient.

    Dr. Auto Tech treats you like family when you are there and that is what I look for in an auto repair shop. When my check engine light came on and I was not in town I was able to call Vasken and give him the codes to make sure I was getting a fair price.

    That is what I call AWESOME CUSTOMER SERVICE! I ONLY TRUST VASKEN WITH MY CAR and always will! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOU TAKE YOUR CAR THERE! You will not be disappointed!

  • I am so glad to have found Doctor Auto Tech!

    I called Doctor Auto Tech on Monday of this week after business hours and left a message. My call was promptly returned on Tuesday morning by Vaskan, Owner who left me a voicemail. When I called back I had no problem getting to Vaskan directly (there is no routing through a service department here).

    I explained to him that I needed to have a fuel injector inspection/cleaning and he advised me of the cost as well as time to complete the job.

    I booked my appointment for Friday morning. Wednesday afternoon I called to change my appointment to Thursday and again was connected immediately to Vaskan and accommodated.

    This morning I arrived 15 minutes before they opened and was greeted by Vaskan upon arrival. He immediately was very welcoming and I knew that he was a trusted and reputable mechanic.

    He took the time to review everything with me in detail, looked through all of my past paperwork of the last service I had on my car at the dealership and made a copy to keep with my records. The service was completed in exactly the time promised.

    When I picked up my car, Vaskan went through everything with me, again in detail. He said that when he got in the engine the people at the dealership had left it very dirty and he had cleaned out everything and showed it all to me.

    He let me know recommendations for my next services and exactly how much they would cost and the time they would take up front.

    I must say that Vaskan and his team at Doctor Auto Tech made my experience wonderful. As a woman it is often a pain and can be intimidating to take your car in for service and they have gone above and beyond to erase this thought from my mind.

    They will be my go-to for my Jetta for the rest of my time with it and for my cars in the future.

    100% recommend!
