No Gimmicks, Just Quality Work at Fair Prices

OUR HISTORY

Harbor city auto repair, Lomita auto repair, brake serviceThe dream started over twenty years ago and it became a reality on November of 1997. With a curiosity of how things work and a passion for fixing broken machines, the founder, Luis Imaicela used that passion to build Blu Automotive.  Along the journey, he has always surrounded himself with  talented, passionate, and ethical individuals.  In turn, the Blu team represents those same beliefs. One client at a time, the word spread about Luis and the team at Blu.  The clientele has grown from a couple of hundred the first year, to thousands twenty years later. We are proud of our reputation for providing outstanding auto repair and work every day to go above and beyond in everything we do.

In over 20 years, we have built lasting relationships with our clients.  Our clients have become part of our family, which is with great honor to now have their grown children become our clients and part of the same inner circle.

In 2017, Simon Yu and Luis have expanded to a second location in Lawndale, CA.  We are excited to introduce the Blu Automotive culture to our new community.
