Best auto mechanic lakeside

Post by E-raq on Tue Nov 13, 2012 8:37 am

Juan Carlos Escalera owner of Escalera auto repair. Two locations, one in Riberas, his first, bet Spencer of S&S is still moaning about his loss. Now one in SJC, conveniently located for us.

He completely rebuilds antique cars and has a couple himself. Plus services almost all brands including Nissans which both of ours are. He is ace at fixing Nissans. The big guy's SUV is now 15 and in perfect nick. Exterior looks like crap. He doesn't care and neither do I.

Since my car at 18 is rapidly approaching antiquity itself, he's the only person I would put any faith in to get it through until I peg out. I will never buy a new car unless, gawd forbid, there's an accident. Even then I'd buy an antique car and have Juan Carlos fix it up.

New cars are not built to withstand high impact. The oldies are pure steel chassis frames. They're like tanks.
The new ones just look fancy, but are practically collapsible boxes made out of tinfoil and bailing wire. NEVER!

Escalara "hooked me" and some of my friends. I found him untrusworthy

I have used Francisco since mid 2005! He hooked me when I went in to pick up the car! New to lakeside, asked for bill, they gave me my keys, said come back and pay, when Francisco is here! Since then we make arrangements for service, Francisco delivers to our home, we pay when we return! Can't get much better!

sundown must be really bored when he picks up on a thread just over a year old just to be able to say something?

We use them all the time and deal mostly with Aaron, sometimes he doesn't even charge us so we give a tip.
