    You guys with any hybrid battery issues or engine issues or dashboard issues, mostly anything, you guys should check out MC prius hybrid repairs. They’re located in San Jose but I believe they have a mobile service too. Their prices are great and they service is even better. Their great reviews on google is what got me interested in going to them, I’m glad I did

    Do they possess a California Bureau of Automotive Repair license?

    Can only find their mobile service listed on the website, do they have a physical address?

    Best to use a mechanic with a physical address, that way you might find them in the future. To be fair you could use the free diagnostic service, and have them quote a repair before price comparing elsewhere.
    Guessing this wasn't your Yelp review :

    Way too expensive!!
    Why would we want to pay you over $400 for a repair that someone else will do for $180 and in half the time??
    Get a second or third estimate or you may get burned!
    By the way, just because i am a girl does not mean you can try to rip me off.

    Some days I almost feel sorry for these "new members" who do a quick fly-by to try to round up business.

    They just don't know what they're getting into...

    Looking at the website gives the impression of 2 "techs?" who swap modules in your driveway with no real test equipment to determine bad/weak modules. Anyone can use a multimeter to find a module that's 1.3 volts lower than the rest. What about the other 3 or 4 that are only 1000mAh capacity that are going to drop out in 3 months and put the owner right back where they started?
