I must thank everyone who had taken the time to review this shop on Yelp! The left fender of my car was dented so I took my car to a few auto body shops in Thousand Oaks and Westlake Village for repair estimates. So very glad that I used Yelp and found this place which has saved me $350 in repair cost! They don't have a full-time staffed front desk personnel, but it helps cut down their overhead cost. There's a white button at the front desk which you can ring and someone would appear right away to take care of you. Jacob, the person that I talked with both on the phone and in person, was a very nice and respectful young man. I appreciated that he tried to help me because I was paying for the repair myself and gave me a good price. Car was done on time and the damage is gone, like nothing ever happened! No compromise in quality. Cost is more than fair, people is kind and reasonable, and quality is very good... yea, highly recommend. Deb C. (5-star review left on Yelp)

After trying countless mechanic repair shops I stumbled upon this gem tucked behind Home Depot. They were the first shop that did not turn me away because of the year make and model of my vehicle and the difficulty that comes with finding parts. They went through the entire truck and found (plus showed) all of the areas that needed to be addressed and explained the repercussions if I did not go forward with fixing them. They fixed everything I needed and did the job perfectly, they were extremely affordable and even offered to drop my truck off since my office is only down the road. Five stars is an understatement when it comes to the shop. - Jay R. (5-star review left on Yelp)

Great service and good price. I highly recommend Academy Automotive 805. I had a dent and scratched paint in my car, so after researching some body shops on Yelp, I found this gem in Newbury Park. Since I was paying cash, they gave me a fair quote and a cash discount. The damaged are looks like new. The car was ready on time. Jacob and Andrea were nice and pleasant to deal with. - Doug K.

My son and I went into get an oil change for my Volvo. A bit hard to find especially if you are going off of Google maps. Better with the shops directions. Anyway, upon entering the office to check in, I was warmly welcomed. The man in charge was very nice and helpful. While I was waiting, any one of the staff that came into the office were so kind as well. A+ on customer service! My SUV was serviced and ready to go around the time quoted. Great prices and I WILL be back for all my non warranty needs. - Cheryl D. (5-star review left on Yelp)

This body shop was great. Staff are respectful and helpful. Price was half of what another local shop quoted. The work was excellent and completed on time. Complementary rides to and from home we're on time. I strongly recommend Academy Automotive. It is a great find. - Steven L. (5-star review left on Yelp)

If you are looking for high prices, dishonest service advisors, expresso machines in the waiting area and mechanics that will tell you one thing but do another, then I'm afraid this shop is NOT for you......Academy Automotive 805 performs top-notch service on a variety of automobiles with an even wider variety of issues. Service Advisor (Jacob Harwood) patiently hunted down a hard-to-find car part for my 1964 Buick Riviera and Service Technician (Victor Hernandez) executed a lasting repair after another local shop tried and failed (twice!). I highly recommend giving them an opportunity to win your business too. - Kirk H. (5-star review left on Yelp)

These guys are great. I manage a fleet of about 16 cars and they are very prompt and complete with every job. I even take my personal cars here. I highly recommend them for any job, big or small. - Griffen D. (5-star review left on Yelp)

I reached out to this shop for a collision repair that unfortunately happened in my driveway between my two cars. Without going into too much detail, one car clipped the other. It was the result of the driver still experiencing some jet lag from a late arriving flight a few hours prior. These things happen. Nonetheless, both parties were sufficiently freaked out by the accident that I sought out immediate relief. I happened upon a flyer I kept from a mailer for Academy Automotive 805. It was Saturday, so I had no expectation they would be around, but indeed they were and right up the street. We got a reasonable estimate that day and both cars were skillfully repaired within a week. I've been all over the Conejo Valley in the past 25 years in an ongoing search for competent mechanics and have found a few here and there. Coming from LA, my standards are pretty high. Academy Automotive certainly qualifies as one of the best and most professional full-service shops I have encountered out here, and as a result they will have our business going forward. This was altogether a positive experience. Regardless of what you might need done to your ride, you should check them out. - Kenneth Y. (5-star review left on Yelp)

I reached out to these guys on a Sunday through Yelp's quote request feature and not only did they get back to me on a Sunday with a reasonable price for a front bumper and caliper paint job, but they were the very first ones to do so. That level of responsiveness was consistent throughout the whole process. As far as the actual work, also zero complaints. Everything came out looking exceptionally great. Would definitely recommend. - Tyler K. (5-star review left on Yelp)

Bryce, Jessie, and Winston run a great shop. We started using them for our fleet service on our work trucks. They are very thorough and efficient in their work. They are convenient with pick-up and drop-off availability. Most of all they are doing great work at a fair price. Now my family and coworkers are going there too. I recommend them for auto repair and custom work. Thanks guys for the great work! - Perry A. (5-star review left on Yelp)

Found these guys on Groupon when I was looking for oil change deals. Wasn't sure what to expect since a full synthetic oil change came out to only $40, but this awesome little shop has been the best car repair/maintenance experience I've ever had! I called ahead on a Saturday morning to make sure they could get me in and out without leaving the car. When I pulled up Bryce, the owner I think, knew exactly who I was by name from the earlier call. He was really cool and gave me the Groupon deal directly so I didn't have to buy it on my phone. The mechanic, Jesse, was awesome! He did a full inspection of my car and went through everything with me, explaining what was looking good, what work needed to be done, asking about the car's repair history, and showing me everything with a flashlight while the car was up in the air- really great teacher. I know NOTHING about car engines, belts, shocks, etc., but I do now! He even gave me a list with all of his notes, complete with really reasonable prices for the minor repairs I needed. I'll definitely be back for any other car maintenance or repairs I need in the future. Highly recommend! - Shelby C. (5-star review left on Yelp)

Academy Automotive went above and beyond with their service, at a fantastic price as well! All of their people, from Bryce, to Manuel, Jacob and Winston, were extremely kind and helpful. It was refreshing to see guys who truly care about doing a good job AND treating people well. They also seem to really enjoy working there. Turn around time was quick and they delivered on their promises. I couldn't be happier! - Kaili K. (5-star review left on Yelp)

Friendly staff, and great service! Sweet little gem tucked in behind target, and next to the Adventist academy. - Kevin K. (5-star review left on Yelp)

I bought a Conejo Deal coupon on line for a headlight restoration. Wasn't sure what to expect but thought I'd give it a shot. These guys were great. As nice as they could be and the job they done was great. I will be going back. - Terriel H. (5-star review left on Yelp)

I got my headlights restored. Wow! What a difference. The office staff were friendly. After reading the other reviews, I will come back for other car needs. - Kim A. (5-star review left on Yelp)

These guys are awesome! Today, I came here for the first time and got an inexpensive oil change. Academy Automotive 805 offered me a ride to my office, but I decided to hang out instead. My car was done in no time! I am very pleased with the level of service, friendliness and knowledge these guys have. I think I found my new shop! Annnndddd, it doesn't hurt that Brent is totally huggable! - Emily A. (5-star review left on Yelp)

John the owner did an amazing job on my Mercedes CLA 250. I scratched the entire side on my brand new car on a pole and dented both driver's side doors. I took it to other shops for estimates but what they wanted to charge was outrageous. John not only gave me a fair deal, he did an impeccable job. No one would ever know it was damaged. I will definitely bring it back here for repairs and will recommend him to all of my friends. - Kristen B. (5-star review left on Yelp)

I recently had my brakes and oil change here. I did not know that this place existed until a friend referred me. The service was outstanding and the staff was friendly and helpful! I've had bad experiences elsewhere - it was so refreshing to get excellent service from true professionals! - Jeanna A. (5-star review left on Yelp)

Love this hidden gem behind the Newbury Park Target! They’re accommodating, speedy, friendly and most importantly, fairly priced. - Brittany N. (5-star review left on Facebook)

Honest...Honest ...Honest...People....Lots of work done there and lots of work I thought I needed on my vehicles that they said I didnt need...This place is the only place you should consider! - Pete B. (5-star review left on Facebook)
