I used the services of John's Automotive Center, sometime early this month.They are very friendly and do not push for any additional services. Their services are reasonable. They are available, when needed. I like their services and will use the same in future.

This service center is great! I've been bringing my cars here for years, for jobs big and small. The quotes that they give are always competitive and comprehensive, and in my experience they almost always finally bill below what they have quoted you! The staff from the front desk back into the garage are all knowledgeable, and i have generally worked with a single technician per vehicle, so they really get to know your car if you are a frequent visitor. With different issues I have had with an older VW Randy was very helpful in finding some work-arounds when I wasn't willing to spend big $$, and even did some small tasks without charging me at all (like bypass the heater core to prevent a leak into the front seat area, as opposed to pulling the whole dash and replacing the heater core = $$$$! who needs heat in san diego??). I would totally recommend this garage to anyone who even knows only enough about cars to suspect that other shops are messing them around. You can trust these guys, and the pricing is always competitive and straightforward.

John's Automotive did an excellent job with my truck. They went out of there way to be as informative as possible, saved me a few bucks off the initial quote, and even stayed late at their office when after working hours to help me out since my job precluded me from getting there before they closed. I highly recommend them; they have my business.

When I called they quoted a price which was $8.00 higher than a coupon offer I had from another smog check location. However, when I read the fine print on the coupon I saw that $8.00 would be added so it was actually the same price as Johns. The coupon used the lower price as a come on. I liked that John's Auto Center quoted the exact price. They were friendly and professional and the smog check was done promptly.

I went to John's for an oil change and to have the tires rotated.I called ahead and they were able to take me right away. The work was done quickly and professionally. My husband has been using John's for many years and I have used them for the past 5 years. Victor, Harold and April are terrific. They know us by name and it feels like visiting friends. We have never felt pressured, taken advantage of, or overcharged (and as a woman I've had that happen plenty). In May I was told of a potential oil pan gasket leak, but told it could wait until the next service. When I mentioned we were planning a 3500 mile road trip before then, it was recommended that it be taken care of before that. I did exactly that and they made sure the car was in perfect condition before our trip. They have our complete trust when it comes to all three of our cars.
