Randy and Mark really take care of you. I have a diesel M-B and an old Bug, and both are in excellent shape, thanks in no small part to Randy. Not only do they do great work, they also provide advice or educated guesses as to problems over the phone, usually spot-on. I have taken their advice on more than one occasion via phone and have taken care of the repair myself. I have moved up to LA and they still provide phone advice and, when need be, I'll travel down to San Diego for them to handle the problem in person.

I've been an unbiased customer since 1980. These guys are just amazing ... I won't consider buying a car that they don't work on, just because I don't want to give them up!

A wonderful shop. For about 15 years I took my car to Bill Melton, a retired Navy jet plane mechanic. He took only referrals. But he's been out of business for a few years. I was really happy to find Randy's, have referred my kids to him, and anyone else who would ask me. I drive a 95 Avalon and think it's in very good hands with Randy. Larry

Thanks to God and Car Talk Mechanic Files! We just left our 18 daughter in San Diego to start a summer job. We, being responsible parents, had her car thoroughly checked over before we drove it the 1000 miles from Oregon down to San Diego. One week later, she became stranded along the road due to a leaking transmission. While dad helped her deal with AAA and towing, I got online to find a mechanic. Not only was Randy's well reviewed, it was walking distance from my daughter's apartment. My husband found Randy very knowledgeable and his prices reasonable. My daughter thinks her car has never run better! Thanks also to AAA for allowing us to have it towed to Randy's rather than the "default" mechanic.
