My car brakes were making a terrible squealing noise -- worse over the past two months but really a problem ever since I purchased the car (despite it being new). Joe did an inspection and reported that, from a functional standpoint, the brakes were fine. However, the break pads were a cheap brand and were definitely causing the noise. I opted to get the brakes changed to eliminate the noise. Joe put in new high quality break pads -- and did other stuff (resurface/reinstall the brake rotors, oil change, new air filter, etc) -- and voila! the noise is gone ... and my car is quieter than when I drove it off the dealership lot! If you want quality work at a fair price -- and want to support an honest local business owner with great customer service -- come here. I plan on doing so from here on out. - Philip H.

Finding a knowledgeable mechanic is important. Finding an efficient mechanic is also impt. But when you find one who is all that and honest they are priceless!
There is NO ONE else I would trust my vehicles to then Joe and his guys. He has never steered me wrong, or replaced something that wasn't necessary. And always he has charged a fair price and worked within my schedule. Highly highly recommend Joe and the boys! - Ed C. (5 star review on Yelp)
Joe is an awesome guy! Have taken our cars to him for years! He's also a great family friend. He and his crew are experts! I'd highly recommend Nolan's Auto for your autos needs! - Eric B.
Finding a go-to auto mechanic you know you can trust isn't easy. I grew up in the same smallish town with Joe Nolan, and he's the real deal. Everything you'd ever hope for in honesty and integrity. He really is looking out for your best interests- not his own. He's been in business forever. I wish I could speak more about the nitty gritty of the work he does...all I know is, he makes cars go, for a VERY fair price.
My highest recommendation! - LA M.
Joe at Nolan's Auto Service is as good as they get. Last year I had to find a new mechanic so I did what we all do, I asked my friends on Facebook who they would recommend. The one name that kept coming up was Joe at Nolan's. I am so glad I found Joe. Finding a mechanic you can trust these days can be tough. I know when I call Joe to tell him I have a problem I can count on him to find the problem and fix it. I recently totaled my work truck, Joe and his mechanic Angelo both took the time to talk to me about used cars I was finding. They have gone above and beyond in trying to help me. Finding a business like Nolan's is rare. Customer service above and beyond. - Tim J.
Today I took my car in for an oil change because it has been burning oil. Angelo mentioned that he thought this issue was a warranty issue for my car, and he was right! After inspecting my car and finding no external leaks, he suggested that I take the car to the dealership. To fix this repair without warranty would have cost $2800. And I had never been informed about this defect! Thank you Angelo! I am very grateful to you, and both my husband Tim and I will continue bringing our cars to Nolan's Auto. Joe and Angelo, you are awesome! - Jan C.
I was looking for a repair shop to fix my A/C. I got a recommendation for this place and after reading all the reviews here, I thought I would give it a try. Joe the owner is a great and honest guy. Very polite. Service was fast and price was right on. I will now be bringing all my vehicles here. - Jeremy B.
Finding an honest mechanic is truly difficult. We probably all have horror stories. Well, as long as I live near Fullerton, CA—I'll never have another horror story, thanks to Joe Nolan at Nolan's Automotive. He's honest, and knowledgeable. He's worked on my old jeep several times now for different reasons and always explains everything, and has even talked me out of spending more money when he didn't think I really needed it. I completely trust this guy and am soooo thankful to have found him! - 5 Star Customer Review
This is an honest car repair company you can send your mother to and know that she will be treated with all honesty and integrity, receiving the best auto service there is. They were very fair with charges and got the work done in good time. I will use them whenever I need my cars worked on. - 5 Star Customer Review
Been coming here for years, most honest place around! - Andrew C.
