Sierra Madre Independent Honda
This place is The Best. Chris, the owner of Sierra Madre Independent Honda, is a great guy, and a sort of Honda Whisperer. If you are a Honda owner, Chris won't steer you wrong (pun intended), with his stellar service, and very reasonable prices.
I once had an old, crumbling CRX with a problem that numerous mechanics couldn't seem to identify. I thought it was curtains for my little car, but Chris figured it out in the first visit. He once told me that, at 100K miles, the car had "lots of life" left in it. He was right, and "Zippy" and I were able to safely drive back and forth to college in Fullerton for a few more years.
I've had two more Hondas since Zippy, and would likely buy another if I were to get a new car, just so the new car could hang out with Chris, like its predecessors did. Hondas like him. If you don't believe me, look closely at the photo above. I'm pretty sure that Accord brought Chris a cup of coffee, when it came in for its oil change.
