Customer Reviews & Stories

The whole staff team is really professional and nice people. From my experience over the phone with Erica to talking to David was really positive and efficient. I did not meet them through people or word of mouth. They really take care of you and your cat regardless who are or who you know. Now as far experience, efficiency and schedule time they are on point. 5 all the way. David is specialist in Toyota or Honda which are the cars we own. I am very skeptical and picky person. Nonetheless I am very satisfied and with them!

About a month on a Saturday, I noticed one of my brake lights was out. I had to get it fixed that day since I was going on a road trip on Sunday. Harbor Brake and Auto came to the rescue. Not only were they open on Saturday but they had me out of there in an hour. That includes the fact they didn't have the part and one of the workers went to grab it from a distributer before replacing it. Plus they didn't charge me for any of that travel! Harbor Brake and Auto were affordable and quick and I would highly recommend them to all.

They put on new brakes and rotors (I knew both were in bad shape before I went there) and they did it in just a few hours. Luckily I didn't even need an appointment but I would recommend getting one because they are really busy for a reason - everyone who knows trusts this shop. They were recommended to me by my transmission shop (family friend). Just back after a 12 hour drive and the brakes and rotors are perfect!

Great find. . . Great Peeps. . . Great Everything. They do it all and do it SUPER Good. Thank You Harbor Brake! You are all wonderful

I highly recommend Harbor Brake for all of your auto service needs, i.e. they do more than just brakes. The amazing thing is when I take my car in there, they know who I am. They even remembered my other car that I hadn't had in there for a year and asked about it. I trust them to do the right service at the right price. Highly recommended.

First off, HUGE kudos to Evan & his team! I have to commend them for their amazing customer service over my last two visits and will likely continue to go to them for all my car servicing needs when they come up! I had a Super Saver Coupon/Ticket which I had purchased last year and had one day left to use it and they more than accommodated my situation when they didn't have to! I am grateful & appreciative for that and now fully understand why they've been a fixture in the San Pedro community since 1931. I hope their longstanding tradition continues for many years to come!

Came in after running over something on the freeway and my car started sounding different. Took it in the next morning and within 20 minutes found out that a piece of metal had punctured a hole in my exhaust. I immediately knew the reviews were right about this place when I pulled in and the mechanic didn't just drive my car onto the lift but took it around the block first. After a thorough inspection he brought me over and explained the situation. Although he couldn't fix it, he sent me to a muffler shop down the street who could do the repairs. Oh and all of this happened on a Saturday and the inspection was free of charge. The worst part was that I don't live in San Pedro so I can't have them as my permanent auto shop. So anyone who does, should definitely take advantage of the great prices, helpful staff, and amazingly efficient service!

I've been an occasional customer here since 1988. And other people I know patronized this place well before that. It's pretty much a San Pedro institution. It was taken over by a younger guy a few years ago who has deep ties in San Pedro's automotive community and he's done it all right. All the old timers I know in town speak highly of this place. All the mechanics seem very good. The work is done right. The prices seem fair. You can tell these guys care about doing a quality job. If you're not working on your own car, it can sometimes be a pain to find somebody good. You don't have to worry if you take your car in here. These days, Harbor Brake does more than "just brakes" and alignments. They do suspensions and general vehicle repairs as well.

Harbor Brake is my family's new found auto place in the heart of San Pedro. While looking for a local repair shop that specialized in Range Rovers, we came across this gem. We stopped in on a Wednesday morning and were quickly helped by Erika. David was the mechanic who began assessing the car, and after explaining to us one by one the issues that needed to be worked on, Evan came over and explained the estimate. He also offered drop off & pick ups while the car was being worked on- a big help! A day later, the car was ready to be picked up. All the issues were fixed and we couldn't be happier with the service we received. Everyone here is very knowledgeable and professional. Thank you so much Harbor Brake!! Job well done! :-)
