Great value for money! Service engine light has been on for...hmm...8 months. I elegantly ignored it, telling myself that someday I'll have time to take my car to the shop and then take 2 buses to campus, then 2 buses back to get it, not to mention getting up really early and all that crap that's never gonna happen. Then a friend told me about university tire center. Being a USC student, it meant not having to take any additional transportation. It's within walking distance. The place caters to students, so the prices are low and you absolutely can bring your car in in the very late morning and still get same day service. In my case, the car had to stay overnight until the new thermostat arrives (am I glad I brought it in finally...), so they gave me a loaner car, free of charge except gas. Moises at the front desk was super friendly and helpful and the car was ready earlier than expected. Price check: oil change 33$, alignment 65$, engine diagnostics 85$. My only complaint is that they filled up some coolant and charged me 24$ for it. Had they asked - I had a gallon in the trunk. But that's really small change compared to the rest, so I didn't knock off any stars.
