    This place is by far one of the best shops I've taken my car to. Very clean shop, experienced mechanics and people who went the extra mile. Thanks Arnst Ocean.


  • -Ian K.

    Arnst Ocean Automotive has saved the day for me quite a few times now on my 1966 Mustang. Whether you have a classic car or a modern car, I highly recommend this shop. They are upfront and honest, and they are completely transparent with the work that is needed and the price to get the job done.


  • -Jonathan R.

    Just a great shop! I drove in after hours with a flat and the 90 degree sun stalking me. The owner came out, didn't gouge me price-wise, and made a bad day a little less terrible. A reminder of how things used to be. I recommend.

    Dave did a great job of getting my Jeep Wrangler running again. He took the time to properly diagnose it and figure out what was really wrong instead of just changing out probable components. I'll use them again.


  • -Dylan J.
