I am very satisfied with the service received. The problem seems to be fixed and the car was returned same day. The price was reasonable. When service is required in the future I will definately return there. Dan, the Service attentant was pleasant when I arrived at 6.45am before official opening time.

Well Mike, Chuck and everyone else at Smitty's always knock my socks off with their great people skills. This time I took my 2005 Scion in to evaluate for a potential buyer. The "go over" was completed and Mike spent time on Craig's List to find price comp's so that both the buyer and seller could have confidence in the transaction. Now it's done and I'm happy about it and by the way, ask Mike to tell you his water park story. Chevy Chase could have played the dad. I love being in this neighborhood. Thanks Smitty's!!

I am always pleased with Smitty's Service. They are the best people to take your car to, because they care about doing a fair and honest job every time. When I took my car in they inspected the under front of my car, because my car got hung up on the underside by parking too close to the concrete marker the city puts up to help us park.

I had emergencies two days in a row, two different cars. I had some one talk to me immediately and take care of the cars. Always pleasant and personable. I never felt I was being ripped off. Everything was explained carefully. I will be back!

Everyone was very friendly. I was on vacation and had trouble with my brakes. My cousin recommended Smitty's and they were courteous and explained what was wrong with my jeep. Would definitely recommend them to anyone that needs work done on their vehicle!

This service was efficient and thorough. The staff/mechanics are always friendly, upbeat and helpful. My windshield was even cleaned and the paper from the driver's side and plastic (for protection during the service) was also removed. Extremely ethical group!

This family owned business is great when it comes to honesty and budget concious car repair. A woman can take her car in and know she??s getting a straight answer. When I go there the problem is presented in terms I can understand. I've had a battery, several oil changes, and brakes done there. The customer service has been top notch! I see the same smiling faces every time I go there and people that work on the cars appear to be well trained. I recently moved from the 'hood but will keep coming back for the service!

I called Smitty's based on rave reviews from some friends at church. Smitty's is the real deal- very honest and affordable.
I needed an oil change, the car was pulling to one side and I was concerned about a burning smell coming from the car. Rick (the mechanic) said that my Honda didn't need an alignment; one of my tires had a nail in it and after repairing it the veering to the right was cured! I thought the burning smell might be an oil leak, but Rick found a plastic bag had melted on to my exaust pipe. He scraped it off with a grinder and also did the oil change. No more burning smell. He had my car roughly 3 hours. Total bill: 48.05-I was ready to spend hundreds and my honda runs wonderful.

Highly recommended!

Smitty's use to be the only place I would take my car and I have spent A LOT of money there as well as sent at least 7 of my friends there. I called, the guy said it sounds like I need a tune-up and it would be $105 or $110 with the better spark plugs. I dropped my can off the night before with a note saying tune-up with the better spark plugs and an oil change. They charged me $171 and when I asked if they did the whole tune-up I was told they only replaced my plugs. My car still runs like crap. The option they gave me was to make an appointment and pay another $90 to diagnosis the problem. I will NEVER take my car there and I will make sure my friends stop going there too.

I chose this place as a result of all the credited reviews. And sure enough, Smitty??s Service lived up to their reputation.
I was told that I needed new brakes and I knew I needed an oil change. I was pretty apprehensive because I saw that they charge almost $90.00 an hour plus parts
With an appointment I was in and out of there super quick, in about half an hour. They were very nice and attentive. The best, part as it turns out, is that I didn??t even need brakes. They found a loose clip and secured it at no extra charge! Another huge bonus is the 2 year hassle free warranty. It??s nice to know that they stand behind their work!

Going to the dealer would've cost me twice as much since they insist on 30k mile inspection that amounts to nothing but wasted time on "if necessary checks". So if you want to bypass all that check this little shop out on Adams. I am going to go back for any future car needs for sure.

If you take your car to Smitty's make an appointment. You may wait for two weeks, but it will save you disappointment.First come,first serve does not work. I dropped my car off with them on Sunday evening. Put my keys in the night drop box. Tuesday afternoon, they had still not touched it. I had rented a car. Two day rental was $80. I decided to cut my losses and go elsewhere. Shame. They have done good work for me in the past.

Have been going here for several years, after trying several other places in San Diego. Best mechanics I have ever found in ANY city. Yes, they are very busy (and yes this IS a good sign!), but worth the wait to get you car in.
==> This is the only mechanic I have ever gone to who told me NOT to do some work I suggested they do because it was not really needed or because they could find a better and cheaper solution. How often do you find that in car care?
Also, had one occasion when they needed to spend a lot of extra time repairing a cooling issue on my old BMW, and they ended up spending a few days, waiting for parts, doing a bit of custom work and only charged me for the amount they initially estimated even though they did a lot of extra work to get it right -- because of my car, not because of their lack of knowledge.
Though not a BMW specially shop, they really knew my car. My partner also bring his Subaru there and has had great experience. THE BEST! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

The three times I have called Smitty's Service they have been very busy. I have been to the location twice and they were busy them as well. But that tells me people trust them and like their service. I decided to be patient and give them a try and I too was pleased with the service. Customer Service is ok - because they are so busy some of the friendliness was lost but I got done what needed to be done for a good price and I would go back again.

Honest and fair prices can be found at Smitty's autoshop. The service is great and the owner works directly with customers to ensure that they get the best quality for the best price. They do get pretty busy, but are efficient anyways. Plan ahead, just in case they are a little backed up.
