They are always timely, friendly, able to explain the findings and fix what can be fixed. Three days ago, when I picked up my 10-yr old and very rusty-bottomed Elantra after its oil change and regular check-up, they said it was becoming dangerous, showed me where and said it was time to think about a new car. I now have a new car and their shop was my first stop on the way home in it. I won't be needing repairs from them for quite awhile now so they certainly gained nothing by being straightforward except a life-long customer and advocate.
They're very knowledgeable and fair priced, and she gives a great breakdown of cost and maintenance to do, so you know what's coming up in other words. I like the way she runs her business, she always sends out coupons we can give to friends, they always get a percent off if we recommend them and gives us reminders. They are also very close and we like that to be local. I would recommend them to anybody who would need a good honest auto mechanic in East County.
They are courteous.I live within 6 blocks from Gregg's Automotive and the owner when I dropped off my car, he's picked me up at my home to get my car. I feel like they are good at communicating on the phone. My husband just said it was a little pricey, but they are very communicative. I have trust in them and they are a legitimate business and I'm a realtor and have already recommended him to a couple of my clients. I'm glad they are there. They seem to be willing to help and they seem to be very helpful.
I took my dodge neon here over a year ago because i was having issues passing smog.
The CAP program referred me to these guys with a $500 budget for them to fix my car. I got one estimate for about $400 from them but once they had my car for "repair" I got a phone call after a day telling me that i need some new sensors and the new total after parts and labor would be about $700 which i agreed to since it would only be $200 out of my pocket... So now about 3 Days have gone by and now i get a phone call telling me that "the boss" has decided NOT TO WORK ON MY CAR and that since he has seen some of the cars "original wiring" was modified to get my radiator fans working that they could no longer work on my car.... After being pissed off i walked next door(literally) to another car repair place and told them the issues i was having with Greg's. The mechanic offered to take a look but didn't want to give an estimate until he had the time to look over it. Less then 24 hours later my car fixed and and the bill was only $250. Take your time and shop around a bit before trusting these guys with your car.
