Meet Hector, Owner and Skilled Auto Repair Mechanic

In 1990, Hector Linares immigrated to Los Angeles from El Salvador. He was only 20 years old at the time. He always had a passion for auto repair, and he pursued his goal of becoming a mechanic when he arrived here. During the day, he worked hard. At night, he attended mechanic school. His training continued over the span of 15 years, and he developed many skills during that time. Today, he has more than three decades of relevant mechanic experience and has worked for Toyota auto repair, an all-European auto repair shop and his own mechanic shop. He holds multiple prestigious certifications, including ASE Master Certified and Hybrid Certified.
