I brought my vehicle into this shop to have repair work done because it was close to where i work. These guys seemed honest enough when I dropped my car off. I guess it was part my fault for not clearing my car out before I left it there. They stole my Ipod, my sunglasses, and a ring I had in the car. I know it was all in there when I went there and dropped it off because I was listening to my iPod when I arrived at their shop. I was never able to get the items back or do anything about it because I did not notice untill I got halfway home. I called and accused them about it and they just laughed, and said "Good luck proving anything"! Also when I brought my car in there for a clutch replacement, they told me that the cost was only going to be $800. They called me after they were half way through with my clutch that it was going to cost another $500 because of a throw out bearing. After speking to another mechanic he said that that is usually included in the price of the clutch, and if it was not included, there is no way it would exceed $100. WATCH OUT FOR THESE GUYS! THEY ARE WHAT THEY LOOK LIKE BIG FAT THIEVES!!!

Wow!!! What else can I say about Chuck and Frannie!!! I have been bringing ALL of my cars to these guys for around 15 years!!! They originally were working out of the back of El Cajon Auto Repair and have saved me money and always been upfront and honest with me about repairs I need for my cars. I have been to other repair shops in the past and I would never take it anywhere else. I literally would tow my car 100 miles to go to this shop. If you would like to ask me more about them please email me at ncave1971@yahoo.com. These guys don't have a really clean spic and span shop because they work on cars here. I would rather not get a bait and switch from some other bozo telling me that the repair will be cheaper etc etc. Not worth your time or effort. These guys also work on Bentleys, Mercedes, BMW and Rolls Royce etc not that I have any of these cars. If you want the straight skinny on what is going on come here. If you want to get ripped off and lose your money go somewhere else. I have always found that sometimes you get what you pay for and Chuck has always been honest with me and saved me money.

This shop has been my shop of choice for well over ten years. Their prices are fair and competitive, they are unbelievably honest, and they are extremely professional. Most times they will ask "how long do you intend on keeping this car?" before giving me as estimate. If I say "a year or so" they tailor the repairs to that time frame. If I say "forever" I get a different estimate, tailored to make my car last me "forever". Unlike other shops, they do not just go to the "forever estimate" without asking first.

They have kept all of my cars rolling for years and I simply cannot remember the last time any of my cars became disabled while driving. I would be lost without them.

Needed to drive our passenger van to Big Bear for a youth camp. Chuck checked it out beforehand and determined that brakes were needed; did the work and everyone had fun at camp. Reasonable prices, and very knowledgeable mechanics. . . they've been keeping our cars running for years!!

Nothing like turning your car over to someone who knows what he's doing. Some people are interestted in cars. I just want mine to work. These are the best diagnostic people in San Diego. They can find any problem, fix it, and then stand behind their work. They are also great with preventing problems and saving money - I follow their advice and drive long distances on a regular basis. Love my Lexus and don't want to trade it in until at least 200,000 miles - I think I have a shot.

Extremely professional business! I felt confident throughout the whole experience. I will continue to bring my vehicles to this business for any work needed! I will also be telling my family and friends about this establishment!

Thanks Chuck!
