I used to live in Culver City and then Torrance, then Norwalk, then Monterey Park. This is one of only two establishments that I still drive back for and continue to patronize.Why? Basically I have never been ripped off or even suspected I was. They are really good about estimates, calling if there is a change, giving honest assessments if something they find can be safely put off until the next visit (I am pretty regular about oil changes and routine maintenance).I've been using Modesti's for about 12 years. My X's family for maybe 12 more before that (not sure). Its gotta tell you something.
