About 15 years ago these guys fixed my car. Later the owner called me and told me he'd found out his mechanic had claimed to have replaced a part he hadn't really replaced. The owner said he'd fired the mechanic and was refunding either part or all of my money (it's been a lot of years!) I have never gone anywhere else since that day! They have fixed every car in my family for 15 years and we've never had a dissatisfied moment.

These guys are awesome. I have been going there for years & would never go anywhere else. My car runs great! They are honest & only recommend necessary repairs. I have had numerous repairs done at Beach Cities Automotive & have always been told what the repairs will cost up front. I have tried other shops before & have finally found a good one. I tell all my friends this is the place to get your car fixed. I hope they are in business for as long as I am living San Diego, I would hate to have to find a new mechanic shop.

I have been going to this shop since they first opened in 1990. They are the best shop I have ever been to. I will never go anywhere else as long as I am in the San Diego area. The owner is the most honest person I have ever met. They always explain what is wrong with my car in general terminology so I understand exactly what is wrong & what needs to be repaired. I have been to other shops & been ripped off. These guys are truly honest.

These guys worked on my Fiero for five years, and vetted my new car; a Mazda; look after my husbands car, and have done emergency repairs for my parents, and members of my rowing team, and they have always been timely and helpful...and honest! We've used them for over 10 years, and wouldn't think of buying a car without their advice.

Gary is a master mechanic who was making large money at a authorized Mercedez shop. He has started his own shop because he wants the independence from a boss and the stress of making deadlines OTHER superiors imposed on him. Gary is EXTREMELY knowledgable, completely honest, and he almost, ALMOST, takes too much time explaining the car to you. Put it this way, Gary's customer's, including myself, appreciate his work so much, we cook specialty dishes for him to show our appreciation for his personalized repair to our cars. He is a 1 in a 1000. And the ocean is only 1 block from his shop...Gary knows this and is extremely careful to clean up and prevent lubrication spills. Keep up the fine work, Gary.
