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.

Mae de la Calzada founded LadyParts Automotive Services based on a simple observation: "When a woman's car breaks down, lives break down." Recognizing the strain of being a wife, mother, professional, and friend all at once, de la Calzada saw a way to ease at least one burden women often face. This vision helped her to turn the intimidating ordeal of auto repair into an empowering experience.

Today, when women—or men—walk into LadyParts Automotive Services, they are greeted by automotive technicians who eschew technical jargon and instead speak in the simple, clear language that both cars and drivers instinctively understand. Claiming certifications in hybrid repair, LadyParts's mechanics work on virtually all makes and models of vehicles, performing services that range from 50-point safety inspections to major repairs. To enhance each visitor's experience, the staff coordinates free shuttle service and furnishes a waiting area with free wireless Internet access, a 50-inch plasma-screen television, and well-maintained restrooms.

To further demonstrate its goal of turning auto repair into an empowering experience, LadyParts's team leads car-care clinics in which technicians demystify automobile maintenance. Such efforts have earned LadyParts Automotive Services consistent press, a vast network of loyal cars ready to do its bidding, and recognition that includes a 2011 Best Car Repair win from ABC7 The Bay Area A List, as well as a top-five finish in the 2012 race.

Named after a little girl who loves cars, Sophia's Euro Asia Motors has nurtured roadsters inside a 26,000-square-foot facility for more than 10 years. Their team of ASE-certified mechanics—one of whom can work on diesel vehicles—maintains autos with oil changes, brake adjustments, and tires by Michelin, Pirelli, and Hankook. As a Certified Auto Repair center, they back many of their repairs with a 12-month or 12,000-mile warranty, which is honored at more than 30,000 locations across the country—only three shy of being honored at all the buildings of any kind in the country. Their I-CAR-certified techs restore autos to showroom condition before sealing their handiwork with a lifetime warranty. If guests can't wait in Sophia's cozy waiting room furnished with booth-style couches and a TV, staffers will pick up and drop off their autos or provide free rental cars for qualified repairs. Sophia's mechanics have also been known to demonstrate a commitment to their community by such generous acts as delivering bath towels to shelters and hosting car washes to benefit local after-school activities.
