Under California Insurance Code ยง758.5 an insurance company cannot require that an automobile be repaired at a specific repair shop. However, an insurance company can recommend that an automobile be repaired at a specific repair shop. There is a formula for figuring out if your car is a total loss. The Formula to figure out if a car will be a total loss: Cost of Repairs + Salvage Value, if that sum is greater than the Actual Cash Value, the vehicle is a total loss. You can tow your car directly to our shop any time day or night. Place your keys, car and contact information in the mail drop if no one is available to personally assist you.

A FAMILY BUSINESS SINCE 1984

In 1984, Bernie Gates' dream of opening a body shop became a reality when he and his wife Laurie opened Prestige Auto Collision in Mission Viejo. The shop consisted of 1 building on a sleepy street lined with shops servicing the car industry. They would see many businesses come and go. Prestige would weather many storms and continue to steadily grow. The business would expand, taking over the lot. Utilizing 4 buildings and over 40,000 sq. ft. of secured facilities. This would only be the beginning and the company would expand to include Prestige South and Fabricante. The business continues to employ many members of the family from grandparents to grandchildren.

Customer Reviews

  • The experience was very satisfying from start to finish. David began with a careful inspection of the car and then proceeded to offer an estimate of what it could cost. He checked around and within a few days ended up with a very fair price. I appreciate the extra mile he went to. Finally, the repair to the car was exceptional and it looks like new. This is great work at a great price. I will come back if I ever need a quote for a repair and work done.

  • I love these guys! They have performed great work on multiple cars in our family, including major front end damage on a 2011 Honda Odyssey. They made it look new again. Today, I brought the same van back for an estimate on multiple minor dings and scrapes on the front right bumper. I planned to pay cash and was expecting about $500 in damages. Instead the manager brought out some cleaning solutions and paint repair stuff. He did the work himself on the spot and left me with a bottle of paint matched touch up. It looks good, which is all I wanted. He wouldn't even accept a $20 to pay for his lunch. Of course they were willing to make it look perfect in the shop, but went over and above the call of duty, giving me a freebie of only what I needed.

  • Would definitely recommend this body shop over anyone else! I had to get my 2019 Toyota Corolla fixed here twice for a few minor things. Eric has handled all of my repairs and the car always comes out looking like new each time. From now on, this is the one and only body shop for me!

  • My dad had a little accident which damaged his MB, FAB showed up on Ameriprice/Costco's body shop list. We took the car in, Steven was friendly, knowledgable, and made everything super easy. FAB said the car would be ready on Friday. On Friday morning, we got a call from FAB and informed us the car was ready. It was like new again! Professional work and on time, what can you ask for more? We highly recommend FAB if you need any work done.

  • When I brought in my I wan in the verge of major breakdown when my sweet C300 was in an accident and the people rhat helped me in another shop did not fix it correctly. Dave S. gave me confidence that the car will be fixed like new. I felt relieved but still anxious as he coordinated everything and liased with Mercedes to get the work done , right! He was extemely knowledgeable, helpful, and professional. I would recommend this place to anyone anyday. Thank you Dave and Fabriconte!!!!
