These guys are fantastic! I'm new to town and needed some work done on my older car and these guys were great. Excellent customer service and were very upfront and honest about the needed repairs. Fair pricing and excellent service! I highly recommend to anyone in town that needs automotive repair.
Micheal the new owner is awesome! I trust these guys to do an honest job every time. Been coming here for 5 years and will continue to come even with the new ownership!
This place hasn't skipped a beat!
Michael and his team are top notch. If you are looking for a legit, honest mechanic... look no further!! Super impressed with Michael for taking the time to explain and show me exactly what was wrong and how they go about fixing it.
10/10 would recommend
Pro tip: If you buy tires from here, you get a free tire rotation with every oil change! Worth it
Fast service with GREAT prices. Got a nail in my tire, called and asked if they had time for me to come in. They said yes literally took no time at all when I got there for them to help me. My tire was already pretty worn so I wanted to just get a whole new tire. They had my size in stock and switched the bad one out with barely any wait time. Will for sure be going back here if any other services are needed in the future!
These guys are awesome. Michael and his crew truly can do it all. I know the place has "tire" in the name but they do so much more than that. I'm actually not sure there is anything they can't tackle. On top of that they really are the rarest of finds:Honest car mechanics that are affordable. There isn't anywhere else that I take my vehicles for needed service and no other mechanics I would trust more. You can't go wrong with this place.
Horrible human being very dishonest. I took my car in to get my brakes changed and they charged me 600 dollars and didn't do anything I found out 3 weeks later from another shop in ob that no brakes had been put in or anything was done the other shop showed me my car the parts and all that they were doing. Do not trust these people
Had a great experience with them about 6 years ago, so when I had another issue, I went back expecting the same. Totally different experience the 2nd time and there will definitely NOT be a 3rd. Knocking sound on my front end when idling at lights etc. I was totally scared it was something in my engine...turns out, it was my front plastic loose bumper making the noise...(they called to let me know), said they could fix it for something like $200 (ish)...I say ok great. They called back a little bit later and had some other service re: bearings or something like that (I think) they said, it doesn't look like they've ever been changed. We can do it but with all the labor, it will be like $600. My car's old, I say that's a lot of $ for me to spend, is this something that's worth it to keep my car running etc. They "recommend" it. I pick up my car at the end of the day and have close to a $900 bill. The bill didn't really have any details other than the bumper and when I looked at it closer, there weren't any details re: the $600 charge. I should have called back and questioned it. This is my fault. I accept that I got taken for the $600 charge. I should have requested to see exactly what they did, but...that's not the worst part. My car started making the same knocking noise after a couple months (assumed it was loose bumper again). I looked at it myself only to discover all they had done was use a plastic zip tie to attach. Yep a plastic zip tie that costs about $1.00 in materials (and less than 5 minutes of work) and they charged me $250. For.A.Plastic.Zip.Tie. The guy seemed a little shady from the start but I dismissed my uneasy "he's totally gonna overcharge me" feeling because my previous experience had been great (different guy, older, more mature, very nice). Will never go back, totally taken advantage of financially. Do not recommend.
I brought my car in for an oil change and tire rotation. The staff was friendly and I told them I'd walk over to get my car later after work. When I returned they told me they didn't rotate my tires because they were "bald" and gave me a price for a set of 4 new tires. I was suspicious because my car isn't that old so I declined the new tires. Fast forward 5 months until my next oil change... I brought my car to the dealership, and they told me I still had at least another year left on my tires.
They replaced a windshield. It now leaks. These guys are unwilling to do anything to fix the situation. Spend your money elsewhere and get the job done by real professionals where they gaurentee their work.
Went above and beyond to help me out with a flat tire only a few blocks from the shop. Incredibly reasonable price and friendly crew!
I'm an OB local and as referred to this place buy another local car repair place for tire and alignment work. It's was simply, great experience here. The manager was nice, easy to chat with, and gave me a straight-forward good price. No hidden fees or up-selling. It felt great doing business here. Plus, the turn around time on the work was swift. Highly recommend.
2 different "fixes" for the exact same, very dangerous, problem (car shutting off while driving) and they still were unable to actually diagnose the problem correctly.
First stating a bad batter then when bringing it back in for exact same problem stating a bad computer chip. Fast forward ~$500 later and 2 AAA tows and vehicle shuts off again while we were driving.
Took it to the Jeep dealership this time they diagnosed it properly and had the fixed. Dealership stated that all of these "fixes" were unnecessary had the real problem been addressed.
Customer service was very crappy when I came in the 2nd time and stating exact same problems and wanting an explanation of why the first was necessary and why this one should work.
Would not recommend. There are several other repair shops in OB, safe yourself a lot of $$ and a headache and take it to one of them.
We came to San Diego on a retreat and are not from the area. We desperately needed tires before going back on the road and these men are the best. We we're running late and I was being very impatient, which I apologize whole heartedly for, but the man handling our payment was patient with me and took care of us. They put two new tires on our car and the price was unbeatable. Back in our home town, it would've cost way more than what they charged. They serve with excellent courtesy and customer service. If we we're from San Diego, this would be our main mechanic shop. Wishing the business the best to come their way!
