Customer Reviews for Our Auto Shop in Irvine, California

 
 
"Great service! Geza and the team are awesome. I refer all my friends and family here, and I always trust they are in good hands. Look no further, call or go down, and they'll treat you right."
Taylor B.
 

"These guys do great work and don't try to overcharge you. Brian the mechanic will tell you the truth and won't sell you on anything unless you absolutely need it.

I haven't needed body work yet, but if I do I will definitely take my car here."
Jeff L.
 

"Geza Simon is a real pro and have had several cars repaired here. This is a family business that exists on referrals by giving great service. He (Geza) goes over options to make the repair not only like new, but to save money on unnecessary parts. Saved $$ 2 times now and was very convenient. Would recommend to anyone who feels they cannot trust the repair shop. Thank you Simons Auto Body!"

"Simon's repainted my 2004 Infiniti G-35 coupe, matching the original factory paint and making it look like new. I was a happy girl! 10 days later, I was rear-ended on Laguna Canyon Road. Not so happy anymore. My insurance company sent me to another body shop (I'll call them CC). They were nice, but they didn't seem as efficient, or even care as much, as Geza and Brian at Simon's. Oddly enough, the CC estimator couldn't stop admiring the paint job! I contacted Geza at Simon's and within the hour I had an appointment and an estimate. The insurance companies and Simon's worked out the details. I have my pretty little car back now; once again looking as good as new! I'm a happy girl again!"

"The best...period. These guys saved me over $200 on a rear brake job. You are in very good hands with Brian and the entire staff. I will only take my car to this auto body shop. If I could have given them six stars I would have."

"I can't believe this place only has 9 reviews. The service at Simon's Auto Body is the best! I had previously taken my Audi TDI to Expertec Automotive in Huntington Beach for routine maintenance and it was a complete disaster- it took 2 visits there and over 5hrs of waiting. Brian, the mechanic at Simon's Auto Body got my routine maintenance done quickly (like 30min) and didn't try to BS me into anything that didn't need to get done. The price of my maintenance was surprisingly reasonable as well. They even checked out the tires for an older couple who just came in for advice and told them where they should go for a good deal on new tires when they needed them. Now I wouldn't even think of taking my Audi anywhere else."

"Simon's did a great job on the body work on my car after an accident, but I would not recommend having any mechanical work done here. I had to pay for work to be redone somewhere else."
Jennifer C.
 

"What do you say about a mechanic that discourages a service to save you money? Honesty and integrity comes to mind. When you have a hair stylist and an auto mechanic you can trust, life just got easier. My family and I have been bringing our cars to Simon's Auto Body shop for the past three years and longer than that when Brian (the head mechanic) had his own shop. Brian is trustworthy and furthermore, have used many of the shop's referrals for AC repair and smog check; all equally competent and great customer service. Birds of feather flock together! Simon's Auto Body shop is busy for a reason."

"This is a great place if you need auto body work. Brought my car in for a minor fix and Geza took care of me. Great and honest service!!"
Michael A.
 

"As other reviewers have mentioned, I, too, went in for a minor repair and Brian insisted that he wouldn't take any money for the service provided. I tried to give him cash and he wouldn't take it! In the event that I have any need for body work, I will 100% go to Simon's. Thank you, Brian!"
Jeff G.
 

"This is the most honest garage I have ever been to. I have a new tundra and a 39 hot rod. Simons auto body has worked on both and I would go nowhere else. They do quality work at a more than reasonable price. You will not find better and they make you feel a part of this family operated business. A++"

"This body shop is awesome. The owner is friendly, curteous and professional.
I had some work done to my expedition, and they allowed me to drop off my car, and it was done within a couple days. It was quick, and the car looks and runs great!

I will definetly be back to this shop. Thanks Simons!!"
Kathy C.
 
 
"Got great service once again. See you at my next oil change."

"Dealer wanted 3 times what Simons Auto Body repaired my car for. Brian the mechanic did a great job and quickly too.
Thanks Simons"
Brian C.
 

"We were very impressed with the level of service at Simon's Auto Body. Our car looks like it is right of the lot and they went above and beyond to make sure we were satisfied. We had thought of selling the car since it is an older car, but now we plan to keep it since it looks brand new. The staff was professional and friendly. We were very thankful."
Kevin O.
 

"Terribly unhappy with the service here. I was referred here by the insurance carrier (Progressive) of the man who rear ended my SUV. I am in the middle of moving and had to leave several suit cases and various household items in my car while the repairs were being done. I was promised that they would call with an estimate for the repairs before they began any work on the car but never received one. When I picked up my car my belongings were strewn throughout the car. Items were bent and broken. The staff obviously has no regard for their customer's belongings. The icing on the proverbial cake was that they didn't even take the extra few moments to buff out any scratches left on my car from the accident. In fact, they didn't bother to wipe off the dust and dirt that settled on the car during the repair process. In summary, this shop obviously only cares about getting repairs done in as little time as possible with no regard to the quality of the work done or the state of the vehicle when it is returned to its owner."

"It was a match-up for the centuries: Kia vs. Suburban. Any guesses on who lost?

I'm sure the suspense is killing you, but yes, my Kia was crunched by a Suburban. They had a tire blowout on the freeway and slammed into me. I was a very lucky girl to not have been injured; unfortunately, my Kia was not so lucky. There was some pretty extensive damage to the driver side door and the front fender/bumper/side/whatever you call it. After I finished my girly panic attack, I called my insurance company and was told they recommended Simon's Auto Body. Ok. I had only taken my car to the dealership for service, but I was willing to do whatever.

I'm not sure if Brian is the manager, but he was the person I dealt with. When I brought my car in, he was exceedingly nice. He explained the insurance process and estimated it would take a week. He did tell me that he was not too familiar with Kias. He then called me later that day to give me the estimate and to confirm that it would take a week. Fast forward a week. My insurance agent called me to let me know they were having a hard time getting parts. Hmm. I was starting to wish I had gone to my dealership.

My car ended up taking a few days longer, which really wasn't a huge deal. It was beeyootiful and looked brand new. However, when I put the key in the ignition, the 'check engine' light came on. Brian said it was because the car had not been driven and the battery had been disconnected. He said there was no problem, but it was not a good feeling, driving away.

All in all, I wish I had gone to my dealership. Hopefully, I will never need auto body work again. They work they did looks great, but I'm a little apprehensive about if there is something wrong with my car."

"This is the worst place I've ever had bad customer service. Geza the owner told me to stop by anytime after 730 to drop off my car and he would personally drive me to enterprise for my rental because I had to be at work. When I got there I waited for 30 minutes before someone came to the front and it was a man with a shaved head who came to the front and he gave me nothing but attitude. Then Geza didn't drop me at enterprise, enterprise came to get me and I was barely to work on time. Then my insurance company told me the auto place would call me when my car is ready and they never did I had to call them. On top of everything else Geza told me my car would be ready for me to pick up on my lunch that day and it wasn't so while I was at work I had to call several people to help me pick up my car which I shouldn't of had to do. Then I get my car back and it wasn't in its original condition. Of course I called back and Geza didn't believe me when I told him it wasn't done so I had to wake up early to take it back in and he told me that the scuff wasn't from the accident (which it was) and the headlight was improperly placed because he said insurance wouldn't pay for a new headlight. I ensured Geza would call the supervisor at my insurance company but overall....you should NEVER have to have your car returned in an ill condition and deal with people who don't do their job right the first time. Go to SOMEONE else to get your car fixed."
