"I have found you to be honest and effective. I do have a problem with the upper strut bearings, following replacement of front struts on 12/4/13. They are grinding, and appear not to have been replaced or serviced. I had them evaluated by a mechanic friend, who is familiar with my Volvo. He suggested that I discuss it with you before he tries to correct the problem. I also had to get my front and rear alignment redone in San Jose during our trip over Christmas."

Mike L. from San Diego, CA, whose VOLVO was in for an auto repair service, on 7/1/2013:
"When I went to get the smog check on my car, the technician noted a hose that was wearing and leaking a little. I went to Auto Tech, Tom ordered the hose and had me come back in a few hours when the hose arrived. When I returned the hose was installed and the car inspected leaving me anxiety free. The service at Auto Tech is always friendly, personable and professional."

on 7/1/2013:
"What immediately impressed me were two things: the respect and courtesy I was shown and the cleanliness of the facility - often unusual for a garage! I was also offered a ride home - something I was not expecting. The manager mentioned the AAA discount to me, and applied it to my bill. I had not realized that I would get a discount so his honesty was appreciated. Lastly, since I needed a few extra days to get the total payment together, they allowed me to do so with no hassle, and were pleasant and cooperative throughout the entire transaction. No one likes to have to spend money on car repairs - but if you do, I recommend you give AutoTech a try. Their service and attitude were a refreshing surprise."

Kevin M. from La Mesa, CA, whose Nissan was in for an auto repair service, on 7/1/2013:
"Car runs great, thanks."

on 7/1/2013:
"Auto Tech's diagnosis for my used car pre-purchase inspection was right on. The dealer then did a re-inspection based on their report and replaced all the parts as necessary. I then did a seven hour drive home, feeling completely safe."

Peter G. from La Mesa, CA, whose Volvo was in for an auto repair service, on 7/1/2013:
"Tom and John and mechanics know Volvos, are easy to deal with and are honest. Recommend them strongly."

Rebecca Q. from La Mesa, CA, whose Honda was in for an auto repair service, on 7/1/2013:
"Thank you, Tom, for your thorough job your team did on my car. I had a feeling that I would be in good hands from what I heard, but wanted to see for myself. You definitely lived up to your reputation. I'll be seeing you soon for the follow up visit you requested to make sure the car is running up to your expectations post-repair. Thanks again! Rebecca Quintal"

Mary S. , whose Volvo was in for an auto repair service, on 7/1/2013:
"You have kept my "ancient" car running like new. Thanks"

on 7/1/2013:
"Professional staff - quality work - no detail unattended to.... Any "redo" necessary for whatever reason done cheerfully and at no cost! Over ten years I've never had a complaint nor observed anything but first rate service, attention to detail and genuine care and concern for the customer and every vehicle..... No better place to go in the County - or anywhere else....."

on 7/1/2013:

David T. from San Diego, CA, whose Lexus was in for an auto repair service, on 7/1/2013:
"I took the Lexus to Eskimo AC and they checked over the entire system, evacuated it and then refilled. It has not failed since. They could not find anything wrong with the system. I have driven about 300 miles since without any problem. Weird in my opinion and it sort of begs the question of when it will, if it will, again."

Carleen H. from San Diego, CA, whose Mercedes-Benz was in for an auto repair service, on 7/1/2013:

If they say it needs to be repaired we never don't the necessity of the repair. Thanks Auto Tech. Richard/Jacque Songer"
