Tradition & Technology in One San Pedro Auto Repair Shop

Welcome to Harbor Brake & Automotive Service !

At Harbor Brake & Automotive Service, we’re working to restore integrity to the auto repair industry one satisfied customer at a time—and because we’ve been around since 1931, that’s a lot of happy drivers and well-running cars! In 2004, San Pedro natives, the Yankovich family, bought the business from Wayne Lebsack, proudly continuing the shop’s signature reputation for honesty and quality. Today, Harbor Brake is still known as the local auto repair shop you can trust for unbeatable car repair and reliable vehicle maintenance services, as well as a warm hometown welcome. We are tradition and technology combined into one—if we do say so ourselves—awesome auto repair shop.
