We've been dealing with this shop for several years. They care for both our 172 thousand mile Toyota and our 199 thousand mile Honda. These cars have achieved this mileage because of these people. This is an ethical operation that works good, fast and cheap. Some jobs you think will take all day are finished before you can walk out of the shop. We'd trust them to do ANYTHING they feel competent to tackle - and there's not much they can't do. They've saved us thousands of dollars over the years.

I have been taking my car to Sun Honda for over 7 years now. They are always friendly and I feel confident with their work. A friend of mine had referred me to them after she had great luck with her Honda. I highly reommend them!

Competent, Courteous, Friendly, Listen to what you have to say, Slight language barrier, Work seems good. I have a 94 Honda Accord EX, they did a major service and brakes, I have also had them do my oil changes (though they want every 3,000mi). Taking it in to replace the thermostat this week too. Affordable service, highly recommended.

My first visit to Sun was in about 1984 when I took in my 1982 Honda Accord for servicing. Maurice Sun was the owner and took care of my Accord until I replaced it with a 2002 Civic. I trusted him completely to do whatever was necessary. There were even times when he would talk me out of some work I thought might be needed. A few years ago Maurice retired and sold the business to Lawrence, the mechanic who had worked for Maurice for many years. The excellent service has continued. Right now, July 2009, they are the last business still operating on the downtown city block, which is being taken over by a expansion of San Diego City College. Lawrence says they'll be moving to a new location in about three months. Although they used to specialize in Hondas, they repair all makes of cars. They're the best!

I have been going to Lawrence for over 20 years. and he is the best, and his employees are awesome. Also, he is very honest. I would recommend him to anyone. About a year ago, I was asked by a friend if I knew a good mechanic. My answer was no, I don't know a good mechanic, but I do know a great mechanic. She went to this shop, and Lawrence performed a check on the car's computer. Lawrence said the reading was not giving him an accurate picture of the problem. He re-booted the computer and asked her to return in a few days. My friend called me and said that this mechanic could not fix the problem. After taking her car to other mechanics and getting quotes from $2,500 to $3,000, she decided to sell the car. I recommended that she return back to Lawrence, and let him hook up the computer. The total cost for the repair at Lawrence's shop $185.00. Need I say more?
