United Alignment and the owner, Nova, are awesome! I originally went to get my wheels aligned and rotated ($60) and an oil change ($30). I asked Nova if he could check my tire pressure sensor as well and give me a quote on how much to fix it, since the light had been on for several months (the dealership had already quoted me $200+ to fix it). Nova said it would be $35 to diagnose the problem, but that if I chose to have it repaired with him, that the $35 would go towards the repair, which would run around $160/broken sensor. Sounds fair to me! I came to pick my car up, and the alignment and oil change went off without a hitch. Not only that, he never once tried to up-sell me, which I really REALLY appreciated (see my review on EZ-Lube, which I refuse to ever frequent again). He also told me about a very tiny leak with my water pump that should get looked at in the next couple months. And then, for the kicker, he told me the tire pressure sensor didn't actually seem broken and that he'd fiddled with it and it seems to be fine now. I was only charged the $35 diagnosis fee for what the dealership quoted $200+ to me for. Hoorah!! Nova was totally upfront and honest about all costs and never tried to upsell or get me to pay for unnecessary repairs. I plan to go to him for all my automobile needs from now on, and I've already recommended him to several of my friends!

I made an appointment for an alignment on my truck. Nova was awesome and got me in and out in under an hour. The price is fair and the service fast and friendly.

Nova and United Alignment and Tire Center are great! I found out about this place from yelp of course, and decided to go in once I found out that all 4 of my tires needed to be replaced asap and I also needed an alignment. I dropped off my car and then Nova called me with tire prices and all that. He explained the benefits of all of them (I suck at car knowledge) in a way that I could understand in order to make my best decision. Plus since I got tires from him I got free alignment when it was needed! Awesome. Anyways, they replaced my tires and aligned my car and even picked me up from work to go get my car!! That was amazing. Plus, Nova is super nice and the business is family run so it made me feel even better about going there. Andddd he gave me a discount for making my appointment online! I'm down for anywhere that gives me low prices and discounts. That was about 8 months ago, and I just went back last week for a 90,000 mile check-up. Had a few things wrong and once again Nova and his team fixed everything perfectly at a really low cost. Definitely an honest place and will go back for all my car needs! Best yelp find yet! Totally recommend it.

So I just recently moved from the West Side to the Valley. It's no surprise to anyone that a good and trustworthy mechanic is hard to find. You figure it shouldn't be but it is. For this reason, I was so attached to my old mechanic(another favorite of yelp) that I would drive 40 minutes down 405 just to have my oil changed by him. Finally, I decided that it was time to break the umbilical and find me a new "care taker" for my 98 lexus es300 closer to my new home.So once again I turn to yelp as it has turned into my oracle to find a good...just about anything. United Alignment and Tire Center turned up. Using an oil change as a litmus, I came up on the monday after 4th of July(when most places were closed) and met Nova. He was very personable and a straight-shooter, no bs. That may not sound like much of a compliment until you have been on a mechanic hunt yourself and know how rare it is to find a mechanic that will tell you the ways things are and not bs you. my mobil 1 oil change ran about $85, which was norma, and tire rotation with balancing was another $40. Everything took about an hour, walked up the street to have breakfast and when I got back it was done, nice.Nova is now putting in a rebuilt AC compressor for my car tomorrow. It was a problem that was diagnosed by my other mechanic. I tested Nova with without telling what the sound was coming from my hood. He gave me the same diagnosis almost instantly. So much for a test. It was very apparent to me very quickly that Nova knew his stuff. I originally would have just given them 4 stars. But I looked up at my winshield after I got my car back, the oil change sticker said the next oil change was TEN THOUSAND miles later. I always knew that synthetic oil change interval was at 10k, but this is the first time (I've been driving for 20 years, 12 in this car) ever that a mechanic wrote the true interval for my oil change. Honesty, it goes a long way. That earned another star and my business for as long as I'm in the area. All you other hacks, I hope you learn something from this and other reviews for this place.

There's a good reason this place is all 4 and 5 stars. Nova is the MAN. and he's totally TRUSTWORTHY and cool. Not all that many mechanics you can say that about. Also, for selfish reasons, I like that it's tucked away...which means you might miss it, and my car will get in and out a lot quicker. I've had a few jobs done here, and literally was in and out in under an hour. Walk to Denny's, grab a cup of coffee and some buttermilk pancakes, and go back and pick up your car. No bullshit, no price-gauging, and an honest, well-educated opinion about the health of your vehicle...go SuperNova, go United.

I had a good experience here. I noticed that one of my tires was getting low, after putting in air. I knew I needed a rotation (it's been a while) so I called and made an appointment. Nova checked out my tires and showed me the problem, it was a nail. But then he showed me another problem happening with the other tire and the tread was broken. Since I knew my tires were old and cracking this could be a problem soon. I decided to take care of the two tires for now and he cut me a deal with the alignment. He was really courteous and told me some other things to keep an eye on since I'm reaching 100,000 miles, but no pressure, just informative.

I was on my way to a meeting in North Hollywood and driving down the 134 when my tire blew out. Long story short(er), AAA came very promptly and I was able to make it to my meeting. Towards the end of the meeting, I told my client that I needed to get a new tire, and he busted out his new iPhone and searched for a place nearby for me. He didn't use yelp, but United Alignment and Tire Center came up on top of this other user-review site. He was obviously very happy with his new phone, as he not only showed me the review, but directions to get there as well. 10 minutes later (and knowing more about the iPhone than I cared to know), I was on my way.United is very small, literally a two-car garage. They were working on another car when I got there, but they took care of me right away. I hadn't had lunch at that time, and while they were switching out my tire, I grabbed something at a Mexican fast-food restaurant down the street. He didn't tell me what kind of tire he was going to use, nor did he give me an estimate. I was having a bad day (not only because of the flat tire), and I didn't ask, wanting to just get the day over with. (There was a collision at the intersection, where a small car ran into a yacht that was being hauled. I felt lucky at other people's miseries.) When I came back 1/2 hour later, the car was already fixed. I asked him how much it was, and all I cared was that it was less than $100. At first, I thought he said $18 something, which I thought I misheard and that he must have said $80 something, which was within my range. I gladly handed over my credit card, and when I got the slip back, it WAS $18 something. When I saw the tire, I knew why. It was a used tire. Now, some of you might balk at this. But I drive a 1997 Toyota Corolla that's so beat up, and at that time, I was going to buy a new car soon, anyway, that used tire, as long as it works, was perfect for me. I considered myself lucky, in fact. Then as I was driving away, I started feeling insecure. I mean, was my car that beat-up that he just assumed a new tire would be wasted on me. Then I realized that one of two things happened. Either the store was so small that they didn't have my tire size on stock or he just wanted to get me on my way without making my car new-tire lop-sided. But $20 for a used tire, I thought, was very reasonable. (Since then, my regular mechanic had taken a look at it, and he thought the tire was fine.)So it was a good ending to a bad day, thanks to United and its fast and cheap service. I took off one star because I wished he had told me what he planned to do. Reading the other yelpers' reviews gave me a sense of his personality, and it made me feel more assured that he didn't give me a crappy deal.

I've been going to United Alignment since about 2000 if not earlier, and I cannot recommend them enough.The owner, Nova, is an exceptional person and a top notch mechanic. When was the last time a car mechanic said you didn't need an expensive repair done? Well, Nova is one of those rare mechanics who is truly honest and always gives a fair deal.He goes out of his way to help you out, even getting us a rental car on his dime once because the repair was taking longer than expected.I recently bought a new car and decided to take it to the dealership for the first maintenance. I was treated very poorly - waiting in line for a half hour before someone finally acknowledged me and told me I was in the wrong line and had to start waiting all over again. I left, called Nova, he got me in immediately, I had my car back within an hour, and paid half what the dealer wanted to charge.You really can't ask for more than that.Nova, I KISS YOU!!!
