Looking for mechanic in South Orange County

Hi All...
I'm pretty fed up with Tuttle Click and Allen and I would like to know if anyone has a good mechanic in the Mission Viejo area.

I am recovering from an illness and I'm not up to changing my HSG and water pump (I believe it is) belt. The videos make it look as simple as any other serpentine that I've done before. Just don't have the stamina right now.

Dealer wants $400 . YIKES!

Any help would be appreciated.

Dave

Sound like somebody trying to make up for some of the "FUN" swapping the HSG belt,, water pump belt is a "rubber band" belt,, just kinda annoying to install,, just cut the old one off

Buy the OE belts.. visit KIA dealer too for possible better price than Hyundai

<--- Please fill in the 'location' and 'what you drive(year & chassis) and engine size' boxes on your personal profile page.

I would prefer to give my money to an independent rather than a dealer. I'm new to the area and can't go on anything other than yelp. I've never had my car worked on (other than warranty work) by a dealer. They just don't seem honest, and want to dig deep into my wallet.
I'll pay a fair wage, I just don't want to walk funny after writing a check.
