Best Car Repair 

Oceanworks & Oceanworks II

We all have trust issues, and nothing tweaks them like car repair. The grouchy guy turns the thingamajig and twists the hoozy whatzit, and $800 later the engine's still making that funny noise. But you and your vehicle can be assured of healing at Berkeley's Oceanworks and its sister garage-around-the-corner, Oceanworks II (each shop handles a different set of makes). After nearly thirty years in business, owner Angus Powelson has perfected a friendly, no-nonsense approach to the automotive arts, fixing what's broken — and never what's not — using only top-quality parts, and suggesting multiple repair options that make you an active decision-maker in your car's upkeep. All that and a fair price, too. Go figure. The garage's full name is Oceanworks Japanese Car Repair, but they also work on all American makes, a few European ones, and Mini Coopers. Call ahead to reserve one of the well-priced in-house rental cars, which have racked up about 120,000 miles each — your car might, too, if you entrust it to Oceanworks.
