El Cajon Mitsubishi
Prior to my visit at El Cajon Mitsubishi I had been looking for a new sedan for a long long time. I emailed, called, visited, drove, and negotiated dealerships all over San Diego county, everywhere from Escondido to The Mile of cars, from Toyota to Honda. Everywhere I went I was treated extremely disrespectfully by the sales reps, I guess they just assumed that a lonely female in her mid 20's wouldn't know a clue about buying a car therefore they "could offer me their best deal". Make long story short after 3 months of dealing with a bunch of corrupting salesmen I decided to give ECM a try, and I'm so glad I did. From the second I walked in I was greeted with a smile and a very warm handshake, I explained to the sales rep exactly what I was looking for and the prices I was willing to pay. I made it very clear I wasn't looking to waste my time or his and that I was not willing to let them fool me either. Both the sales rep as well as the manager Bryan offered me the option to customize my ideal car and they would find it for me at the best price. Surely after I told them what I wanted they were able to find it and have it deliver to the showroom in less than 1 hour. I was impressed with their level of professionalism and their commitment to go out of the way to please!! I highly recommend this dealership to anyone who is serious about buying a car and wants to avoid monkey business!! And for those who criticize the looks of the dealership let me just say that my experience there was very warm and welcoming, who cares if the showroom is not the size of wall-mart? What matters is the piece of mind you will get once you drive home with a great car at a reasonable price!!

MD Auto Group
I purchased a car from MD Auto Group. My credit score isn’t great and let’s be honest, most used car dealerships feel shady and just want to sell quantity not quality. At MD Auto I was honestly shocked on how good the whole process was. Si, the manager I believe is straight forward and genuinely classy. Not only did I get a good, fair price, but my interest rate was better than I expected it to be. Si actually called me the next day and had me come back to redo the contract because one last bank he was waiting on offered a better rate. He rewrote the contract and lowered my payments. Their cars are clean and run well. Understand that you’re not buying new cars here and minor wear and tear is absolutely normal. It took me time to get that. As much as I would like to buy a brand new car, I couldn’t. So my experience with this dealership was excellent and I am very happy with my purchase. I actually have equity in the car. More importantly, I was treated with respect, and customer service is everything to me so it takes a lot for me to write up a review. Si is a stand-up guy and won’t give you the used car man spin. He’s a stand-up guy and I respect that. MD Auto Group is a diamond in the rough. I’ll go back.

El Cajon Ford
We bought a Fusion in 2010 that was totaled during this past December's storms. That first go around with El Cajon Ford was the best car shopping experience we've ever had, because all three of the above named employees were exceptional in every way. Right from the beginning, Mike, the salesman, made us feel like we were friends, and it was clear that he is the kind of guy who could be everyone's best friend; then, settling on a deal with Rob, the sales manager, was actually fun. The mood was very light and, at times, playful. Finally, Meghan, in finance, was professional and really knew her job. We replaced the 2010. We never gave thought to going to a different dealership. This time, Mike and Rob were very personal in their empathy and couldn't do enough to help us thru the process of our 2010 being totaled and getting us into another car as quickly and affordably as possible. Meghan remembered us from last April, which impressed us, and, again was absolutely great to deal with. We think El Cajon Ford's staff is exceptional, and we plan to return there for any and all of our Ford needs.

Auto City
Awesome ExperienceI have just purchased a Nissan Xterra from them last week. I am a good online shopper so I have checked every listing for a used 2005 Xterra in my price range including Craig's List. I saw the car trough another website they advertise in. So I checked their reviews and decided to go there. Their price for my Xterra was almost 1000.00 under bluebook but I do not know much about cars so I wanted to show it to my mechanic. Now here is the great part these guys were so cool I went there test drove the car for a few exits brought it back and they have not pressured me at all. The next morning I went back and asked them if I can take it for pre purchase inspection. No problem they gave me the keys I took it from El Cajon to PB to my mechanic spend a few hours checked everything. Car passed with flying colors except for a few cosmetic things. I went back and asked to fix the tail light reflectors. They did everything. I am so happy with my car. Best car shopping experience. Very kick back friendly people. I will recommend them to all my friends.

Star Auto Group
I was looking for a car that was affordable for me so after doing some research, I came across Star Auto Group website. The website was great and provided a lot of photos of the cars that I was interested in. After looking at their inventory, I decided to call to see when was a good time to stop by. Jesus answered a lot of the questions that I had. I was satisfied enough to schedule a day to go in. I'm only off on weekends so I went in on a Saturday. The customer service was amazing. I know I had talked to Jesus on the phone but when I got there I met with Joe. I asked Joe how long they have been at that location and he said not too long, just a few months, but they could have fooled me because they seemed to have all of their stuff together. I walked out with a car that I absolutely LOVED and I HIGHLY recommend this place for those looking for a car with bad credit or good credit. Thank you Jesus and Joe!!!!!

Steve's Mobile Repair
I found Steve online. He was the only guy out of 4 different tries on a Sunday that would answer his phone. My sons starter went out and he had school and work the following Monday. Steve got here in less than his estimated 30 minutes. He gave me a fair quote for the job. I supplied the new starter which I purchased from Auto Zone. After replacing the part, it did not work. He informed me I had purchased a faulty part. I went to O' Reilly per his suggestion and got a new starter before returning the other to Auto zone. He put it in and it started right up. He in effect had to replace the part twice, so I offered him more money than the original estimate he gave. He refused and just asked that we call him when we need a mechanic again. I definitely will. Friendly, timely, reliable and honest. Thank you Steve.

El Cajon Mitsubishi
I'm in the military and our superiors in boot camp drill into our head that we steer clear of used car lots because they will rip us off. Not only did I get a killer price on my car, the salesmen there were cool as ever. My salesman was no pressure, funny, and there to help me get the car that I wanted. He didn't try to just sell me whatever, he went out of his way to find me the perfect one. His manager Joe, whom was also in the military, was really cool. He does things very differently, he gets it done quickly and without all the you normally run into at car dealerships. It was fun just to hang out and shoot the with him and everyone else there. They had a huge selection of all types of vehicles. All makes and models, I went in there consecutive weeks and they had new inventory every time.

Honda of El Cajon
Tipton Honda in El Cajon has been serving my family and I for years. We have bought and leased 5 cars from them over the years and were always pleased with their vehicles and their service. We got two cars this weekend (Honda Accord & Honda Civic) and we were delighted to be assisted by the helpful and kind salesman, Mr. Matt who was very patient and cooperative with our request. He managed to give us a good deal on our cars and did his best to insure we were taken care of and got what we wanted. I recommend you ask for Matt when you go in looking for a car. Overall the experience was pretty good and Honda makes remarkable cars with high quality and top of the line service. We are very pleased with their cars and outstanding customer service. Honda never let us down!

M & M Quality Vehicles
While out in California for a short period of time, my granddaughter needed a used car and, purchased a wonderful little Chevy Cavalier from Jerry at M&M Quality Vehicles this past weekend. Jerry Copley, with M&M, was EXTREMELY helpful to her. He not only came back to the lot, in the evening, after he'd already left for the day, he also met her at the rental car lot to drop off a rental car, then, drove her back to his car lot to complete paperwork, then, the next morning, took the rental car key back to the rental company, as it couldn't be left in the evening. He did a great job and was considerate and caring too! M&M Quality Vehicles was a great place to do business with and Jerry is awesome! We HIGHLY recommend this company! (Colleen in Kansas)

Honda of El Cajon
Bought my new 2013 Honda Civic from Tipton Honda and they were FABULOUS! They honored the price we agreed on online (the USAA pricing for military members) -- there were NO extra charges / hassles when I got there. Saved me a lot of headaches compared to other dealerships that try to charge you for extra "specials / fees". This was hands down the BEST car buying experience I've ever had and will definitely recommend this Honda Dealership to all my friends. I worked with Miguel Torres and he was just awesome - but then the ENTIRE staff was so friendly and welcoming. BUY YOUR NEW HONDA FROM HERE!! Trust me - you will never want to go to another dealer again, Tipton Honda has the best integrity I've seen compared to other Honda dealerships I've visited.
Tips & Advices
Depending on the part and its overall quality, a good amount of money can be saved by purchasing aftermarket parts versus OEM parts. But aftermarket parts that are low in price might also be lower in quality and could do more harm than good to your car, or they may need to be replaced more frequently than a more expensive counterpart. This could lead to saving some money in the short term, but spending more than anticipated in the long term.
The type of tires being purchased is the most significant determinant of their price. SUV tires are more costly than average car tires. And high-performance tires are more costly than economy grade tires. On average, standard tires for an average-sized vehicle are around $100 per tire. Standard tires for an SUV are around $150 and pick-up truck tires are about $200 on average. Some dealers offer discounts if purchasing more than one tire.
Car inspections typically take about an hour. However the wait time can be longer depending on how busy the shop is. Call ahead for an appointment to avoid long wait times.
Depending on the manufacturer, certain aftermarket parts can be just as reliable as Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) parts. But one item within a vehicle, like oil filters for instance, could have multiple manufacturers and there could be inconsistencies in quality among them.
Costs of replacing a windshield can vary greatly depending on a variety of factors:
  • Vehicle make and model
  • How much of the cost insurance will cover
  • Whether the windshield installers come to your location or you bring the vehicle to them
  • Standard service costs of the windshield installers
Generally, newer and higher-end vehicles cost more to have their windshields replaced because certain manufacturers use modified or proprietary glass types.
