I took my truck to SoCal Auto to have my radiator replaced, as well as some other general TLC. Chris’ honest and straightforward attitude, as well as his ability to communicate clearly, made me feel comfortable from the get go. I highly recommend SoCal Auto and will definitely be returning for my future auto needs. Thanks, Chris!”
