Sherman Oaks Exclusive (formerly Land Rover Jaguar Sherman Oaks) is the only Independent in Southern California that both sells and services Range Rovers (and other Land Rover models). They have been in business since 1977, and their technicians are Land Rover factory trained. Unlike many independent shops, they also have the most up-to-date diagnostic capabilities for Range Rovers, with their Autologic system -- giving them all the same capabilities as the dealers. They also give free rentals with major repairs.

Sherman Oaks Exclusive has a fully stocked parts dept, and 7 lifts in their shop. Their services go well beyond the usual, and include restorations (upholstery, paint and body, convertible Defender 90 tops, etc). They have often been recommended by the local dealer, receiving their overflow work and their dissatisfied clients!

West Coast British

"Second to none, since 1981", West Coast British is a Land Rover specialist shop that tackles everything from routine service to complete rebuilds and restorations. This family-owned business has longstanding Land Rover connections -- owner Michael Green's father was once the Product Development Engineer for the Rover Motor Company of North America, and the staff is factory trained. When I got my first Range Rover, West Coast British was almost the only place in the Bay Area outside the fledgling dealer network with any knowledge whatsoever of the vehicle.

The West Coast British commitment to Rover enthusiasts is reflected in its affiliated "Off Road Experience" program which offers off-road driver training classes and events, including the now-famous "Nevada Trophy". 

Today, West Coast British offers a full range of service for your Range Rover or other Land Rover. Their comprehensive same day major service costs less than dealer rates. Major engine work is also undertaken, including rebuilds and power upgrades, not to mention vehicle outfitting with a full range of accessories, spares and off-road gear.

Premier Rover

8390 Miramar

San Diego, CA 92121

858-344-4455

premierrover.com

 

William Gomez is the shop owner of Premier Rover, an independent Land Rover service and repair facility centrally located in the heart of San Diego near the 805 freeway and Miramar Rd. William invites you to experience the difference in price, quality and the attention to detail that his shop offers. His goal is to produce more than just a satisfied customer; he aims for loyal clients and cultivate a continued relationship with you and your Land Rover vehicle.

Premier Rover is equipped with all the latest diagnostics hardware (T4 Omitec,WDS,VCM). The same systems used by Land Rover dealerships across the country.

This shop also offers a number of "over and above the call of duty" services, like their $160 on-site professional vehicle detail (see picture at right), window tinting, and off road preparation (among other things they are an ARB dealer). They even offer a free pre-purchase inspection for anyone seeking to purchase a Land Rover vehicle from a private party seller. Not only will they inspect the vehicle to find any pre existing conditions which may affect value either mechanical fault or structural damage, but in most cases they can run vehicle history through carfax.com to obtain any prior accident damage that may have occurred. Even if you are planning to purchase your Land Rover Vehicle from a dealership they will inspect it for the very modest fee of $90.00; this step is often overlooked when making such an important decision. Wow, I wish my local dealer offered such services!

While William's own qualifications are impressive, technician/Vice President Dave Rodriguez is a real Range Rover enthusiast who currently owns a Range Rover Classic.

Ed Wright's British Car Repair

142 Mill ST

San Rafael, CA 94901

415-457-1707

britishcarrepair.com

 

This shop was established in 1960 as British Motor Mechanics, San Francisco and relocated to San Rafael in 1972 as Ed Wright's British Car Repair. Land Rovers and Range Rovers are a specialty. The current owner, Clint Wright, has recently added a special lift for Range Rovers with air suspension to avoid damaging the suspension by overextending it as conventional lifts can. They also have a Rovacom diagnostic system, giving them just as much ability as the dealer to check all of the inputs to and the outputs from the vehicle's computers. Also useful is the Rovacom's recording feature which facilitates repair of intermittent problems. Ed Wright's has all the software covering Range Rovers from 1987 to the present.

Clint is a Brit, a Stanford graduate and is fully up to date and at home with the modern electronics and computer systems found on your late model Range Rover. Clint finds that many owners do not realize that his shop is fully qualified to perform Range Rover service even under factory warranty, providing a full alternative to the dealer. They also honor third party extended warranty contracts. Ed Wright's is experienced in all types of service and repair from routine oil changes to complete engine rebuilding. Conveniently located in San Rafael, even East Bay customers can easily reach this shop across the Richmond Bridge. I have heard nothing but good things about this shop -- it's one of the best kept secrets in the Range Rover world!
