About Us

We have been serving the Highland Park, Eagle Rock, Glassell Park, and Mount Washington area for over 40 years. Our goal when we started was to do good work for good people. Today we continue to be of service to the community because we have the same integrity as when we started in 1980. The only advertising we have ever had was a bus stop bench on Avenue 26 and a local church bulletin.

We have stayed in business due to a strong word of mouth reputation. We stand by our work and make sure you leave with  an experience of having been served. Our long history of serving customers confirms our knowledge of exceeding customer expectations.

Our History

When you are bold, you are bold. Bernardo knew he wanted to do something of value with his life, so with one tune up class under his belt and a whole lot of persistence he opened his little carburetor shop down the street from our present location. Trial and error was his teacher spending 10 to 14 hour days learning on the job. Slowly developing a reputation for getting it right, he expanded from carburetor “only” repairs to the current all encompassing auto and smog repair service.Today Bernardo’s Shop boasts state of the art diagnostic equipment, State of California approval to perform Smog Checks and the same persistent spirit to fix it right the first time.
