Basic oil change, work took longer than estimated, but good work for a fair price.

I always bring my cars to Precision Tune and I can always trust them to do a good job.

Asked to have the upper control arms lubed and when picking up the car it had not been done and air filter housing was not latched closed. Experience was good overall.

I love this shop in El Cajon, CA. I live about 20 minutes away but its worth the drive. I have taken all my cars there and they treat me great. Thank you Precision Tune.

by - Verified Customer June 10, 2017

The shop charged a very competitive repair price and helped find the part I needed to fix my car. All of this on a Sunday! What more could I ask for.

I only went for smog test. I've stopped going there for all other services. I feel pressured and uncomfortable when there. I don't feel that people there care about the customer.

By law mechanic is supposed to tell you if tires are very bad and they didn't tell me. They didn't do inspection of ball joint or CV joint. Went in the day before and they couldn't take my car when I returned the next day, mechanic made feel like I was putting him out.

I waited 20 minutes for keys, while my truck was parked by door, then I just left. I will be returning on my next day off. My change oil light is still on (something else not gone over with me). I know it was the end of the day, but I still expected the job done. They shouldn't of taken me in if they couldn't finish.

I am not certain who is the manager/owner, but there is always a gentlemen around the premises making sure to make sure all was good and to say have a nice day.

I came in for a used car inspection they automatically assumed that I did not already purchase the car. For the time that it took I better have owned the car as it was half a day spent waiting for them to inspect, they did not top off my car with fluids, told me that my car was leaking so much oil that it was collecting all at the bottom but not seeping to the ground so when I went for a second opinion I was told that my oil is fine there is a leak but a small leak not a major leak like the guys told me there. Then if I did not ask to speak with someone to give me feedback on their findings they were just going to send me on my way without any explanation....why am I bringing my car into you if you're not going to explain your findings? I paid $110.00 for what? I did not even have windshield wiper fluid in my car and did you inspect that? Is that not a part of the inspection process...I really thought I would get better service, I am very disappointed at this point. Not sure who to trust! :(

Been going to Precision for years...I don't know if you have new management,,But, customer service wasn't up to par. I came in for an oil change....Paid for the fluid top off...It wasn't until I was on my way home, that I noticed something written on my invoice regarding my brake pads???? Before i left.....I wish someone would have explained to me what this means,,,so, that I can remedy the problem...I bring it to you guys, so, you can tell me...I'm no expert...

by - Verified Customer March 31, 2017

My Toyota, now my son's, was brought in for routine oil change. Ken and Manny have always gone the extra mile for all our cars, big repairs or routine. THAT is the reason we continue to rely and patrionize Precision Tune.

Came in for discounted oil change, and unlike past visits for the same, I had to wait for two hours instead of the usual 45-60 minutes. Service was fine, but you either need faster workers or more staffing. Customers shouldn't have to wait 1/4 of a working day to get an oil change.

Although i brought my car in for an oil change, I figured out when I got home that my car was leaking antifreeze, a lot. it turns out my radiator was broken but i figure the person that did my oil change would have caught a leak and mentioned it to me.

It was what I expected.

The best service received since I quit using barreled grease.

by - Verified Customer January 28, 2017

I had to return my car because the 'bolt' was not tightened correctly which caused an oil leak in my garage. Also, It is frustrating that I cannot use my credit card for this service, because it is below $25. Very inconvenient for 'repeat' customers who only go to the shop 4 times a year.

I have been coming to this shop for the past 9 years and I am sad to say may not be coming back. I have always had a great experience with customer service, however the wait times are getting longer each time I come just for an oil change. I even drive from Downtown San Diego and call ahead to see what the wait times are just to come. Last time I was quoted 45 minutes to an hour and my car was not done for 3 hours. The time before that I was quoted the same and I had to wait 2.5 hours. I have recommended you guys to many people for your fair prices and customer service, however, I do not see myself getting another oil change her any time in the near future.
