My engine light was blinking. Don explained the problem and offered me a quote on the spot. The repairs were done quickly and I was out the door right away, I'm a happy man.

Work was done well and the people were fabulous. Only problem was that the smog check certificate that was done as part of the work did not get transmitted electronically to the DMV. Kearny Mesa Automotive were helpful in checking that certificates for other cars were getting transmitted and that mine was not, but could not explain why mine did not go through or fix the problem. In the end I was able to renew my registration by going to AAA and showing the paper smog check certificate. Not sure if this problem was caused by the DMV or Kearny Mesa Automotive. Other than this, very happy with the repair work and the people.

It went just fine, whenever I go in they take care of me. They price everything fairly, and they are on point with all repairs each and every time I go in. The owner is fair and honest, and his employees reflect this too.

They talked trash on me when they thought they were on mute. Bob, the owner, is generally a good man. However, some of his employees are not the greatest.
