This is the worse place I have ever dealt with. The repairs do not get fixed and the prices are outrageous. My car is still not working and I spent over a thousand dollars. Sasha the owner now says I need more repairs and some of the same ones he just did.

Look out. If you go to this guy, Sasha Atta. He'll rob you blind! Your car will need more repairs than you ever thought possible.Took my car in and he charged me a small fortune. The repairs were never done. Took it to another mechanic and confirmed the repairs I paid for were never done.Stay away from this guy.

Worse place to take your car for repairs. Sasha Atta runs the place and he is a crook. Spent $1200 and car still has no air and shakes. Took it back in to tell him things are not fixed. He inspected the car(charged me $148) Gave me a new estimate..Now he wants over $1500. Are you kidding me?

I could write a novel about Sascha Atta, the ""manager"" of this place. He is actually the owner, but because of his CRIMINAL record, has his son on the title.\r\nGo to the El Cajon courthouse, the lawyers know him by first name. He has already served 5 YEARS PRISON time for AUTOMOBILE FRAUD!! It is HORRIBLE that he's still in business!\r\nSascha is going around the internet writing a bunch of 5 star reviews so that the negative ones get buried. He is so ridiculous that he uses his real name for some of them. EVIL, EVIL, EVIL. DO NOT TAKE YOUR CAR HERE!!!!

I took my daughters car to Meineke 4/26/11 due to overheating. Sascha Atta the manager (son Samir Atta owner) said that it needed a new engine at a cost of $5000.00. I said I do not have that kind of money. He said then he could replace the water pump for $500.00 and that should take care of things temporarily but not fix everything that was wrong with the 1993 Lexus ES. I told him to do that for $500.00. He called me back later and said that he had a deal for me. For $3500.00 he would just do all of the work he said before. I said I still do not have the money. He got me to apply for a Meineke credit card for $2000.00 and I could save up my money and pay the rest when the car was done. So for the safety of my daughter and granddaughter I said ok. It took them 5 weeks to fix the car and I was out of $500.00 on a rental car. We got the car back almost the first week of June. I asked Sasha for the paper work of all that he had done and he said that he would get it to me but it wasn?t ready at that time. He told me to have my daughter drive the car for 500 miles and bring it back for an oil change which cost $40.00. After the oil change the car still over heated and shook like crazy now. I called several times complaining and still asked for the paper work and he still did not have it together and ready for me. On June 17th my daughter was driving the car and it began to smoke really badly. She pulled over near a construction site and when they lifted the hood, the car engine was on fire. The fire department was called and they put the fire out and it was towed to Meineke yet again. Still no paper work completed for the re-built engine. Sascha tried to blame my daughter for not bringing the car back when it continued to smoke. Said it was her fault. Sascha tried to say that it was the power steering pump that was bad. I immediately produced a receipt from early April showing that it was a brand new pump from Pep boys that I had installed. He said it was a faulty pump. On June 21st he told me that the fire was due to the pump leaking oil on the wires. Sascha told me to contact my insurance company. Still no paperwork completed. My insurance paid 2,931.86 for the damages. We received the car back mid July where it sat parked for 5 days with no one driving. My daughter returned from out of town got her car on a Wednesday by Sunday did not want to start and was still smoking. The car was towed back to Meineke again last week. Sasha stated that it was the spark plug wires and the distributor cap. He said that it may be due to the issue with the fire. I contacted my insurance companyl. He has still not done the paper work even though he claims to have faxed it to me. $7500.00 later the car still smokes and now will not start. And he wants more money.

User Rating: 1 out of 5 stars \r\nby Frank 07/11/2011 \r\nDO NOT EVER go to this shop!!! All you have to do is check out Sasha Atta's CRIMINAL record. He is the ""manager"" of the shop, but his son is listed as the owner. He has already been to PRISON for automobile FRAUD and is still working as a mechanic. \r\nGo to the El Cajon courthouse and speak to the lawyer and look up ALL of their small claims against them.\r\nI can't believe they're still in business!!!!!\r\n

I wanted to thank you for providing excellent service during my two recent visits with my 2000 BMW M-Coupe. It was refreshing to be able to leave my car in ""good hands"" with an obviously well trained mechanic and know that all the service will be handled in a very professional manner.
