Patch is relaunching its Readers’ Choice program and we’re asking you, your friends, family, neighbors, coworkers and anyone else who knows about the San Gabriel Valley to nominate the best spots in or near your Patch town. You can pick an auto repair place you love from anywhere near your home, from Altadena to Glendora, from La Cañada Flintridge to Diamond Bar. This includes Pasadena as well.

We’ll keep accepting nominations through July 9. After that, nominations will be closed, and we’ll start the voting, so make sure to get in your favorites now.

It’s easy: Just nominate your favorite businesses in the comments below!*

*Because this is a contest, you’ll need to create a Patch login to nominate and vote!

NOMINATIONS CLOSE JULY 9!

Don’t forget to tell your friends on Facebook, Twitter and email! If you own a business, encourage your customers or friends to nominate you!

All you need to do to nominate a business is to add it in the comments below. If you already see the repair place you want to nominate, make sure to add your comment about why it should be included, because we may miss one, and we want to make sure the top ones make it into the poll.

Huyler's in San Gabriel. Glenn and Joe are good, hard-working guys!
Lana June 21, 2012 at 03:20 AM
Agreed!! Ward Service has always treated me well and has given great care to my Holden Australian import. They will have my business for life!

Firestone in La Canada. They do what the promise. Never have to go back for corrections. They only do what is necessary and discuss the options with you. They are honest.

Morgan Hrants Auto Service on Washington in Pasadena. Not only my vote, but 5 stars from Yelp voters, too. Honest, helpful, gracious, fast, accommodating.

A and A Tire and Auto Repair on Colorado in Pasadena. Sarkis is very honest and reasonable. He has earned my trust.

The absolutely best car repair place is American and Foreign Automotive@ 328 west Foothill Blvd, Monrovia, phone 626.305.5797. If your looking for a place you can trust and isn't going to rip you off, go see Alex.

most knowledgeable and honest mechanics I have ever had are at Don's Auto repair on ave 51 and York in HP. All one need to do is look on YELP and see all the people that concur with me. Not only are they good they are fast in most cases the same day, and reasonable!
henk friezer July 09, 2012 at 11:43 PM
a quick ad-on to my previous recommendation, not only does he service every day car owners, but he has clientele from various businesses. He services fleet vehicles from well known businesses all over the county. They must know something!
Roberta Beasley July 10, 2012 at 01:18 AM
It is hard to find a good, honest mechanic these days....well, I found one!! His name is Alex and he is the owner of American Foreign Automotive in Monrovia! He is the best! I recommend him to anyone in need of automotive repair.
Bruce LeGresley July 10, 2012 at 01:28 AM
Alex at American Foreign Automotive Repair in Monrovia really knows his way around cars. He is the only mechanic I trust. It it great to know an honest, friendly, knowledgable and kind mechanic.

VJ's Auto Repair on 1st and LaPorte in Arcadia, just south of Colorado
Craig Bushey August 17, 2012 at 02:30 PM
Bob Hillmann in Arcadia, on Wheeler east of 1st Ave.
Dan Crandell August 17, 2012 at 03:03 PM
Alex Romo in Duarte. Alex & his staff are the real AUTO-PRO's and Rosemarie is one-of-a-kind in the front office.
Craig Bushey August 17, 2012 at 03:09 PM
I must agree. Also, Rosemarie knows her stuff. She used to run the Chevron in Temple City on Las Tunas @ Oak.
Dan Crandell August 17, 2012 at 03:19 PM
It's interesting that the "WORST" shops I've encountered are not listed by anybody as their best. Wouldn't it be fun to do a "worst" list? There is a shop on Myrtle south of Huntington on the east side of the street. If you know that place you know why I list it as my worst.
Dan Crandell August 17, 2012 at 03:37 PM
Great Shop. Vintage XKE's (???????'s) all over the place. A Pasadena Icon.
Mimi August 18, 2012 at 01:38 PM

So who won the Best Auto Repair Places in the San Gabriel Valley? It's unfortunate for me not to vote, but if I have the chance, I will vote for Hocks Automotive in Pomona, CA! They are the best! http://www.scandiatek.com/
