I brought my car in for an oil change, to ask them to find a cause for some A/C noise, and to review a list of recommended services given to me by another shop, and repair them if necessary. They quoted me a price for the exam and a nice young man with a clean car then drove me to my work. Mid-day, I got a call from the man working on my car. He said that none of the recommended services needed to be performed at this time - they were all "watch and see" items as opposed to must dos. He recommended just keeping an eye on everything, and that nothing was serious or causing any problems. The other shop had quoted about $1k for all of those items. He did recommend a fluid replacement in the transmission. He said though it was done before, the fluid was still discolored.
I'm very happy with the work done, and my experience there. The staff was pleasant and helpful, and the shop was very busy, with lots of guys coming in for service who looked like they probably knew a thing or two about cars. They include a ride to and from work to just about any place in San Diego. I highly recommend them. I'll definitely be going back!
