Bottom line is that these guys are awesome. I have been taking my vehicles here for more than 10 years and have never EVER regretted it. They have taken great care of my cars and trucks for years, and I'll never take them anywhere else. Anyone who can keep my Toyota Tacoma running after all the abuse I hand it and keep me smiling when I get the bill has got to be doing a good job.

Save yourself the wasted grief and time and just go find someplace else now. They are overpriced by a factor of 400% - 500% on just the quote I asked for. READ ALL THE REVIEWS, and pay attention. People who have actually bought auto services in their life are all saying the same thing. BEWARE

OMG, these guys "quotes" would embarrass the freakin' mafia they are so overpriced. They apparently are trying to cultivate a "stupid" clientele that they can comfortably fleece, and the screening process is throwing insane quotes at you to see if you have bought anything for a car before and know the difference.

So if you ARE NOT AN IDIOT, Keep looking for legit auto repair. You haven't found a resource here you'll want to use once let alone again.

I had a surprise leaking in my car's engine and was referred to this little shop. When I brought it in for an estimate, I thought it would be a quick fix. Well it wasn't and I was without a ride home or a car in general. John offered a loaner car to me while they worked on mine for a couple days. The only caveat was that I had to return the car with a full tank of gas! Can you believe it! I was surprised at this gesture and took him up on his offer. They fixed the leak and I had a ride for a couple days to get to work.

A link to a trusted mechanic is a rare and valuable referral. As much as I hate to tell others about John's Automotive Care, I want to see Jimmy G., Dana, Jason, Chad, and John E. continue to prosper in the new year. After our friend's memorial service we found ourselves looking for a new mechanic for the first time in over twenty years. We followed up on the recommendations of friends until we sent our 20 year old son to John's. Amazingly, he was treated fairly even though he was obviously a babe in the woods when it comes to cars. Since then we have taken all of our work to John's. Sure, I could have taken the car in myself but that would not have tested the character of the shop in the same way. The price is reasonable, the staff courteous, the work timely and professional, and even a youngster is treated right.

John does an awesome job on servicing any vehicle we take our Jeep to him. Always quick reliable service, and a fair price. John is a great guy who deserves the business. Highly recommend.

Amazing service! I had my car towed to John's Automotive one evening and was able to leave it there until they opened in the morning. It's super close to San Diego State, making the transportation really easy for me. They were already done fixing my car before the workday was over. Within a few minutes of opening they had already figured out the problem with the car and were able to do all the necessary procedures to fix it quickly. I was super impressed with their service, especially because they periodically called me throughout the day to update me on the cost and progress. All of the interactions were done over the phone and they were extremely efficient about it including allowing my boyfriend to pay over the phone while he was out of state. It wasn't even my car but I completely trust them to work on any car I may need help with later. My first time using them and definitely not my last!

I brought my car here last week and the job that John's Automotive Care was not only very reasonably priced, but it was also one of the fastest auto services I've ever received! I definitely suggest using them!

My family has been going to John's Automotive longer then I have been driving. The service is always exceptional. I always have a multitiude of questions and they are always willing to answer them. The work is always done in a timely manner and they never hesitate to contact you if there are any unforeseen issues/complications. I have never had any issues with work done at John's, where as they have had to fix things I had worked on elsewhere. I will continue taking my car here as long as I am living in the area.

Pros: Reliability, location, staff, timeliness, efficiency.

Cons: Distance. A bit of a drive for me, but definetely worth it.
