The two ASE-certified mechanics at MPG Auto Service have gone to great lengths to turn their garage into a viable alternative to pricy dealership repair shops. The owner has achieved the title of Toyota certified master technician and has slain the diesel-powered dragon needed to earn his certificate as a Toyota hybrid-system-qualified mechanic. The team also knows its way around the engines of Fords, Porsches, Volkswagens, and more than 25 other foreign and domestic makes. They put their knowledge to work performing California smog and emissions testing, exhaust-system and electrical repairs, and routine engine maintenance. The shop maintains a user-friendly vibe, encouraging potential patrons to drop in with questions about their limping or coughing automobiles.

Diagnostics Unlimited’s ASE-certified and knowledgeable team maintains their customers' autos with repair services honed through more than 20 years of experience. The staff has been replacing spent oil, conducting vehicle inspections, repairing fuel-injection systems, and scraping off "Flintstone for President" bumper stickers as far back as 1986. Their skill with electrical and cooling systems enables them to service American models as well as Japanese and European vehicles. They're so sure of their services that they couple each one with a 12-month/120,000-mile warranty, and even a lifetime warranty on brake pads, which is what auto technicians call their apartments.
Michael Rucker has been repairing cars since he was old enough to trade in his rattle for a wrench. He grew up around vehicles and went to trade school soon after graduating from high school. After working for numerous dealerships, Rucker decided to go it alone by purchasing A Auto Haus-Barron Automotive, a family-run establishment that had been around since 1985. Today, he calls upon more than two decades of experience in the auto industry and adds a personal touch to services that range from maintenance and smog checks to major engine repair. Whether the vehicle is American, Japanese, German, or a rocket-powered bumper car, Rucker is likely to know his way around it.
