Due to the many recommendations of the group, I visited Maurice’s last week and was truly impressed with the quality of service that he delivered. My car was parked outside freshly washed and running like a champ. I was going to Startech and now Maurice has won me over!!! Would definitely recommend to anyone.

Maurices! I visited them and was amazed at the professional attitude and the way they take care of their clients I regard him highly and Im so happy Ive found a new shop to go too if youre in orange county this is the place to go!
Maurice is a GREAT guy. I've been feeling bad of late that I've been doing some of the stuff myself that we would normally have him do, what with the downturn in the economy and all. So it makes me feel better that I'm helping to put some new customers his way!
Maurice's is definitely a class act. I was impressed with professionalism and friendly service. The shop is very clean and employees will take the time to answer questions you may have. The owner, Maurice, is also willing to take the time to let you know the ins and outs of your repairs. I also really liked how they showed me the parts they replaced. (My shift cable was leaking trans fluid) Maurice was able to loan me a car for the day which was a perk!
+1 for Maurices. Dropped in without an appointment and asked about telltale signs of timing chain failure. He offered to pull the cylinder head and look at it right away. In five minutes Maurice showed me a very healthy timing chain and guides. My other mechanic, also recommended on this site, just quoted anywhere from $900-1300 to fix it after seeing my car last month. I am glad I held off.
In appreciation, I told him my motor mounts needed replacement which he confirmed. Again, the price was lower than my other mechanic.
Clean shop, nice waiting area and I got a great loaner car, a 280SE 3.5 four speed for the overnight. He has my business, that is for sure!
In the past I have suggested Maurice because he sometimes accepts customers parts. And the feedback that I got back has been satisfactory.
But in my case Maurice originally quoted me $700 over the phone to R&R all four springs, 2-struts, and 2-shocks with my parts but when I went to his shop today on 6/18/2010 Maurice was not there and had his gal of 17 years (Hahn) quote me $1210.00.
So be careful NOT to do business with Hahn. She told me that she has no alternative but to quote book prices. Speak with Maurice (Owner).
So I went right down the street to MB Elite
and spoke with Steve about his phone quote for $600.00 of labor only. That he agreed to uphold.
He also does all of the above and beyond, customer service issues that Maurice does, and his shop is immaculate.
Note: he has a Baun and STAR Diagnostic System (SDS).
