Dave's Auto Service INC.
Many friends have recommended Dave's Auto. I am so happy with their service! The mechanic, Dart, took the time to explain what the problem was in my car. Glad he was able to help me because a mechanic from a different local auto shop could not figure out what was wrong. Dart explained everything to me and got the car running like new again! Price was very reasonable. The woman at the front desk, Maria, was also very courteous and caring. Now I know why my friends trust in this team. If you are looking for honest people and excellent service, go to these guys!

Becka's is the best mechanic shop in San Diego I've been to 30 or more shops over 20 years and have always walked away frustrated, broke, and most of the time car wasn't even fixed correctly .He never overcharges ,car is always done quickly and correctly.Becka's in my opinion is truly one of the most honest and reliable mechanics I've ever been to,he is a dying breed I wish there were more like him.

Mercedes Specialist
Humberto is very knowledgeable on Mercedes Benz. He fixed my 190e right the first time and his rate was super affordable. He finishes the work on time and when I asked Humberto what we should fix next, he told me to use the car and if I notice any issues to bring it back (So far no issues). He didn’t push any other repairs or service even though I asked him. Will take my 190e there again and again.

Awesome customer service I came in for an oil change and car washed and the gentlemen Sana was very knolwedable and helpful in helping me determine which type of oil I wanted. He recommended further services and helped me prioritize which ones I should do first. Overall, I highly recommend coming here for great customer service!! Not to mention you get a free car wash (that's a bonus)!

Tips & Advices
Among the common scams pulled are needless repairs, where a garage charges you for work that isn't necessary. Another popular one is attracting customers through a cheap oil change or tire pressure check. Then, when you your car is being repaired, they give you a long list of other corrections they'd like to make, therefore boosting the total cost of your bill. The best way to combat these types of problems is getting a written estimate before work is done so you can see how much repairs are expected to cost. If the final bill is higher than the estimate projected, ask to specifically see the work. Make sure information is put in writing as well. If a problem remains, you can have proof that work was not done to your satisfaction.
For winter driving, features such as the defroster, heater and exhaust system are paramount. Look in your owner's manual for specific directions on how features should be checked and repaired. Many newer cars have a cabin air filter that can be replaced when needed, allowing warm air to continue to flow in. Also, check tires before winter driving, as they need to be at the proper pressure to perform well on snow and ice.
In the spring and summer, you want to be sure your air conditioner and cooling systems work correctly. Given the high temperatures, overheating is a common problem. Look over the system by ensuring there is enough coolant available. If it needs to be refilled, it is best to open the hood and add more to the car before it gets too warm out. Also, clean out fan ducts and other ventilation sources necessary for summertime driving.
Some fixes to your car can be done without paying a specialist. Issues like replacing oil and air filters are relatively simple, with instructions provided in the owner's manual on how to make these changes. The same goes for replacing broken windshield wipers or burnt-out headlights. Such issues should be repaired quickly to guarantee safety, but don't require a visit to a garage.
Yes. Not every type of auto repair work needs to be done by a certified mechanic. You can fix some of a vehicle's issues just by paying attention to how the automobile is running and having a basic understanding of auto repair. Look over the ways weather may impact your car and what preventative measures you can take to avoid having to take it into the shop.
