Best Car Repair Shop (2012)
Tom’s Monterey Auto Repair
870 Abrego St., Monterey
When it comes to the service industry, there’s very little as important as finding a good mechanic to fix your car fast. What makes Tom’s the best car repair shop in Monterey County? Manager Edgar Udaundo tells the Weekly, “Honesty, timeliness and service. When we bring a car in, we keep the owner updated on its progress throughout the day, step by step. Plus, all our new customers are surprised we get it done the same day as long as the parts are available.” And the service doesn’t end there. Once your car is fixed, the team at Tom’s will follow up to make sure your car continues to run well. “I don’t think you’ll find any other shops that do that,” Udaundo says.
