I've been using this company for repairs for about 6 years. I had a lot of electical problems with a 00 jetta, and they were very helpful in resolving the issue.

I have a lot of confidence in how honest they are. I needed a part replaced, and had called ahead to the VW dealer, and was quoted a price and told that no OEM part was available. I went to Fast Auto to save on the labor cost, and to have the part replaced. They called me and told me there was an OEM part available which ended up saving me money. Another time, they pointed out that I needed a belt changed that was about to break.

I highly recommend this company, and haven't even considered taking my repair work elsewhere in years.

I was a happy customer for few years. I recommended this place to friends also. The owner and brother are nice & friendly & sincere but things started to go bad after a tune up. When I drove back barely with compression. They found cable not properly attached. Trouble is when you ask questions they don't take you seriously. Automatic assurance&denial is not listening. Had Alternator changed. Two weeks later battery went dead. Bought new battery. It went dead. Brought back to store. Found out alternator still bad. I brought car back to Charlie's Fast Auto. He heard my story or events of battery problem and reminded him of the alternator being replaced there two weeks before. O.K. He says he'll check it. two days later. It's a bad alternator. He changes it two days later. I pick up car. Awkward exchange - "Here, here's your keys". I say, "Well let me sign the work order." He says"Oh, no word order, see blank, no charge" Later I realize no work order no record of faulty service or inferior replacement part/rebuilt alternator (?). Time goes by. Still trusting. I bring car back for rough driving & knocking. He changes motor. $2000.00 and one month later I get car back. Car drives weak. Where's the oil ? Don't see oil on stick. He says oil is new and you can't see oil on dip stick..... (?).. He adds a quart. I drive it for a year adding oil constantly. Time for smog check doesn't get passed bring in to test only repair station and they say "What has been done to the Car !!" Nothing's connected properly to work on their diagnostic system/computers. Electronically the car is a mess and not everything is connected. I end up having to retire the car to the state rebate fund. I told him about it and he turned his back on me. I left and never went back. CAUTION.. my previous referrals started to give me me weird feedback too. Which included spilled oil in spark plugs. ETC. CAUTION !!!

Hello. I was a regular customer for more than five years until I moved out of San Diego last year. I miss this mechanic shop. My car is 97 Sentra. I had to do regular things, mostly engine oil and break. They provided very reasonable price for these services. And sometimes my car had unexpected problems; once I couldn't start the engine and once the engine light was on and smog check was failed. Whenever I had car problems, they found the reason and fixed it within very short time with reasonable price. They never ask some extra services not necessary. They are honest and reliable mechanics.

I found the repair shop to be generally fairly honest about doing everything correctly and correctly diagnosing the problems with your vehicle, though it may come at a higher price than expected. At one dealer I was quoted nearly $150 with labor while the Fast Auto Service guys fixed it in a few minutes and threw it in for free with the other stuff I had done. Very often if there are little things you've been wanting to get fixed, they will do it for free along with the other stuff you have them do.

PROS: Fast like the name, honest
CONS: could be pricey
