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)
