i would just like to take a moment and thank everyone at ball auto dealer for being so professional and caring in the purchase of our new kia soul we bought at ball kia. we made an appointment to meet with frank ortiz on saturday and when we went there. he took us over to the kia dealer and introduced us to oscar a salesman there. he took over and helped us pick out car he thought we were interested in they went over price and we traded our old kia in. they were very professional and we took it home that day. we want to thank especially frank ortiz, oscar and art in financing. we had a horrible experience week before at kearney pearson kia and had decided we didnt even want to buy a new car there was so much difference in the dealerships from one that didnt a care if they sold a car or one that did everything possible to help you purchase a car. i give them a high 5 and kearney pearson kia a big 0. i would buy another car from them if i ever get another new one and i would recommend my friends to buy from them too.

Value Auto Repair
This repair shop is like no other. Alex (Ata) runs his shop with honor and respect. Driving our Toyota Prius down from Los Angeles to catch a flight in Tijuana, the Prius broke down upon arriving at CBX. I initially had the car towed to the Toyota dealer. Dealer advised me it was the transmission. Toyota Dealer wanted a ton of money to repair (Over $5,000!). I was about to send my car to the junkyard before I called Alex from the airport on my way out on vacation. His price was VERY reasonable. He picked up the Prius from the dealer, replaced the transmission and while I had the car there also did the brakes and headlight replacement. Upon returning from vacation, the car was ready and waiting for us. Drove the car back to LA in running condition and better than before. Thanks again for operating your business the way you do. Even though you are in San Diego area and I am in LA, I will now be planning my auto repairs around my trips to San Diego.

I have a 2011 Acura RDX that I take to Ball Acura for the regular maintenance. They do an outstanding job of servicing my car and their customer service is unbeatable! I have taken it in 3 or 4 times for regular maintenance (i've put 25K miles on it already!) and have consistently been treated like a valued customer and gotten excellent service. Jeff Arkin, Service Manager there, and his team in Service are great!! They are friendly, professional, efficient (they get my car serviced quickly), good at communicating with me, and didn't try to sell me service I didn't need.I highly recommend the Service department there and am sooooo happy with my Acura RDX!

Southland Auto Body
A friend referred me to Southland Auto Body. They did amazing job on fixing my car paint color. This was my 3rd time painting my car. The 1st and 2nd Auto Body shop, I took my car too. painted the car two different colors and billed me twice. With Southland Auto Body assistance, I contacted the Auto Bureau of Automobile Repair and they helped me settle claim. I would have been ripped-off if it wasn't Southland Auto Body's assistance. They are amazing! The customer service, the level of satisfaction, cost, time frame for completion, and the paint match was perfect.

When we purchased an Acura from Ball, it was what you hope a car buying experience is.... fun, convenient, easy, fair, and friendly. Since making our purchase, we have referred many friends and family members to Ball whom have all had an experience equal to ours. We would defintely buy from Ball again and will conrtinue to refer them to others.

We just bought our new CRV from Romeo at Ball Honda. He was really nice and knew everything there was to know about the CRV. Romeo really made the buying process easy and I would recommend asking for him next time you need to buy a car. We love our CRV! Thank you Romeo!!

Great service! Brought my TSX and always get taken care of. Plus they wash and vacum with any service. If you have a Acura, this is the dealer to come to. If your looking to buy a new car, my rating DOESNT APPLY. I only speak of service.

I got my 1999 Honda Civic fixed here and it was affordable and they finished in just a day. My car has been running ever since. Prices are affordable and service is excellent.
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.
