Great experience here. Even with a staff turnover from Joe to Memo, information didn't get dropped and truck got fixed in a timely manner. They had to repair a P0715 code for my 2015 F150. Soon as the part came in, it was fixed in the same day. Memo communicated well and had great customer service. Definitely will go to this place again.

Professional and down to earth. Took my truck in for a transmission issue. Joe was the man I dealt with and he was great. It is refreshing, in this current world, to find people who have such a realistic understanding of money concerns for thier customers. Auto shops only continue to exist based off referrals and repeat customers. The gentlemen at this shop know that and work to that end. I shall go back for any vehicle issues I have in the future.

My car needed a new clutch and possibly a new flywheel so I called around and the professionals at AAMCO Chula Vista gave me the best quote out of all the other transmission specialists around.
We set up an appointment and they had my car fixed, well tuned and better off than it had been in a long time.
Thank you Joe and the AAMCO team for the spectacular service, I will use them for future car related troubles.

Great service here, I had some transmission issues that no other shop would even dare take a look at as I was told I'd be better off buying another car. I was about to go that route but I brought it to AAMCO and they inspected it and let me know what was wrong completely free of charge. They then communicated with me exactly what the issue was and ended up just needing to get a small part replaced all for around $140 total! Really honest and helpful staff!

Joe and AAMCO Chula Vista are fantastic. They are honest, professional, and on top of that reasonably priced. My AC had stopped working, had contacted multiple repair shops prior, but they all said they didn't have the tools to work with the new refrigerant. Came across AAMCO on yelp, and Joe assured us they could help. Gave us an appointment the same day and had it fixed real quick. I found my new repair shop, will definitely be coming back and recommending to all my family and friends!

Before I begin I don't usually leave reviews but in this case my clutch had took a crap on me & was in some desperate need of a replacement. I had looked AAMCO up online & they had multiple great reviews so I said "What they hey, what's the worst that can happen, if its out of my budget I can look elsewhere." I proceeded to call, & Joe was the one to answer, I had asked the estimate of a clutch replacement & he had told me it depends on the year, make & model. Fair enough, so i agreed. Joe had told me to come @ 11:30am, I later called & said: I wouldn't be able to make that time & had asked if i can come around 3ish. No hesitation (BIG PLUS which i may add) he said yeah that's fine no worries. Once arrived again I was greeted w/ Joe & he was very professional as well kind while asking what I would need. This was on a WED & Joe had said it will be done FRI. Not only did his team get it done on the scheduled time BUT he also got me a better deal! I was already stuck in mind to pay top dollar knowing clutch replacements aren't cheap! I would like to thank Joe & his team for such an easy process NO BS, & straight to the point service! I highly recommend & WILL be coming back for any car issues! Thanks AAMCO you guys ROCK!

My AC has never been so cold.

Check engine light came on during a road trip. Initial analysis using Blue Driver plug-in showed two transmission error codes. Preliminary AAMCO check determined torque converter problem. Check-in was easy and direct (Joe). Replacement parts took several days. The car runs noticeably better. Will take it on another road trip shortly. Thanks, AAMCO!

AAMCO figured out immediately that my transmission was fine, but my Catalytic converter was shot. My car was repaired quickly and I was made aware of all charges ahead of time. No surprises. Plus I was offered several financing options, which fortunately I did not need, but was a nice possible alternative.

Reliable. Prompt. Straight-forward. This team is great. I came in because my car was making noises and check engine light had come on indicating "cylinder misfire." Now, six months ago i had supposedly gotten the exact same issue fixed by a different mechanic and did a "tune up." Since the say i drove out the lot the car was not the same. Noise, screeching sound when AC was on, sometime even when off. Anyway, i ended up wondering wether anything had been fixed at all after paying a large sum of money. I never went back due to mistrust. Well... now that the light came back on i decided to go to the guys at AAMCO. Wonderful decision! Ron was very attentive and responsive while i set up my appointment and Joe was absolutely wonderful when i dropped off the car. He made sure i knew what the issue was and promised to resolve it. Once all was taken care of my car is driving smooth and no more AC noise. Im so grateful for this AAMCO team! They really strive to help you out. I appreciate the help!!! Thank you, Joe!!

I drove my 2008 Jeep Patriot from Arizona to a relatives home in Chula Vista, knowing something regarding transmission needed work since the dash light had intermittently appeared. An assessment was to be done and I would learn by phone what the recommendation would be. Knowing I was working with a short window of working days to get back on the road, Joe found a refurbished transmission and had the old transmission removed. I felt backed into a corner as clear, written agreements were lacking. Ron, the owner became involved and proved the needed taped conversations for clarity. In the end, I believe this business to be fair and ethical. I suggested the experience be used as an opportunity for improved written consent. I also realize I played a part in the confusion and accepted the incident as an opportunity to remember documentation. I was able to return to Arizona and have a good 10 day follow up.

I have an Audi Q5. Usually I have to bring it to a specialist. I thought I might have a transmission problem and wanted to try a local place. This Aamco had some Really Good reviews. I figured they should know transmissions even for a German car. Not only did they do a Fantastic job but it wasn’t the transmission…it was the brakes. Much Cheaper!! Customer service was excellent. Everything they said they would do…they did. A complete diagnosis which was extremely thorough. I had the opportunity to talk to Joe for awhile. He Really knows cars and what he’s talking about. He even looked up reviews on some of the parts we were using to see which method was best. …and most economical. Needless to say I was impressed. I don’t plan on taking my car to La Jolla anymore. I’ll just go here.

My 2013 Chevy truck's transmission broke getting on the freeway. Didn't know who to call about getting it fixed, checked around and talked to Joe Woodard at Aamco. He sounded competent to me, so I decided to go with him. I'm a roofing company, so getting back on the road quickly was very important to me. Joe checked it out, said I needed a complete rebuild. I gave my approval, and had my truck back in 3 days. I had a slight problem with vibration, called Joe about it, brought it in to have it checked. Turned out to be just a slight alignment problem with a clamp, was back on the road in 20 minutes. Truck is working great, no problems at all. In all, the price was fair, with a good warranty, service was excellent, and I am a happy customer and would not hesitate to refer anyone to them.

Saved me from spending 1,500 more at the dealership. I first called for advice to get a better understanding about my clutch and manual transmission and if letting the dealership add (needed) services to the truck was a bad idea or not. Not only did they tell me it was a horrible idea, but they can do the vehicle inspection and clutch replacement at a flat rate and now my truck feels brand new again. The owner was very honest and very knowledgeable. Definitely the only place i trust for my truck now.

Car had a bad clutch that I had been riding for a while. When I took it into the shop, they were able to diagnose it within an hour even though I didn't have an appointment. I had done my research on what the price for replacing a clutch on my age of vehicle should be, and Ron's quoted price actually came in a little under that. They got it done in a few days and it felt as good as new.

One forgotten thing is that this shop is incredibly convenient since its very close to a 712 bus stop, and only about 1/3 of a mile from the blue line trolley, so getting to and from the auto shop without a car was a lot easier than I have experienced in the past.

I keep forgetting to post this review. I've never actually left a review for a car care place before, but this place is fantastic. Wonderful, experienced guys. I've always had issues owning a hybrid and finding a mechanic that can do what I need so it was such a breeze to bring my prius over and have everything checked out and repaired all within 2 hours of me dropping it off. Will go to again

Highly recommend AAMCO for any auto repairs!! Requested quotes for rear brake pads and rotor replacement for a Dodge Durango and choose AAMCO because they offered the best quote and where extremely accommodating with scheduling.. once the service was complete they even beat the quoted price!!. Will definitely be coming back in the future.

Joe is an excellent guy all around, knows his stuff , excellent communicator, and straight shooter. He was also really great at entertaining my son who just turned 11 months today. This audi is my first foreign car and I'm looking to keep it forever. You guys will be my go to far past the foreseeable future. Oil change was quick as was the full vehicle diagnostic. I would definitely recommend them to anyone.

I wanted to write AAMCO a review because these days, I don't have a lot of trust in this industry unfortunately. That said, when I feel I've come across an honest, reasonable, and competent car repair shop, I feel compelled to tell others why I was more than satisfied with their customer service and work they completed. Our minivan's A/C wouldn't work when the outside temperature was above 80°, but felt adequate whenever it was under 80°. I spoke to Ron (owner) via Yelp messaging when inquiring for service, Joe (Service Mgr) who booked our appt, and Ian, whom we checked our vehicle in with. All were professional, empathized with our problem & told us they'd get it back in operation. Our A/C was repaired in less than a 1/2 day! It was diagnosed & repaired w/ us only paying for their routine A/C service fee. Our seals in the service ports were 16 yrs old and the cause of a small leak in the closed system, and our Freon refrigerant was at 50% of what it should've been. All in all, we paid the A/C service diagnostic fee minus 10% since I had redeemed my Yelp check-in discount upon dropping off our vehicle. Our A/C is operating like it's brand new again! Great job AAMCO! And here I only thought you worked on transmissions...

Very positive experience! Had my BMW 435 break down and brought it to AAMCO as it was a listed under my warranty’s recommended service provider.
It turned out to to be a fuel pump failure in addition to gummed up intake and fuel injectors.
The mechanics were very professional and did everything they could to get my warranty company ( who are very difficult to work with from what I recently learned) to cover the cost of the repair. Ultimately the warranty company didn’t cover the repair, however I really appreciated AAMCO’s efforts regardless!
I’ll be back again next time I have a maintenance issue.

Came in for a free inspection, left a customer for life. Who knows they did so much?
They got only checked my transmission, they went over my entire drive train. Told me about things I already suspected, but hadn't had time to get looked at.
Rather than give me an estimate out of the air, I was told it would take a while and I'd get it by email.
Very happy with this shop. No pressure. No BS. Just a solid shop.

This April (2021) I traveled to Chula Vista from Phoenix for a visit with my niece.
On day two my car AC started to blow HOT air. This is a problem! My niece found AAMCO and we dropped off the car in the early afternoon.
Joe Woodard explained they'd do their best to figure out what the problem was. They did!
By close of business all was well. The AC issue was explained and fixed.
Professional attitudes, knowledgeable employees and service with a smile. This is how business runs well.
I've been driving cars for decades. I'd never been to an AAMCO before. My experience at this location was
stellar.

Thanks to AAMCO Chula Vista I am a very cool driver:)

A suspected transmission problem turned out to be something else. The technicians at AAMCO recommended services which resulted in a real change to the feel of the steering, something that another mechanic had overlooked. I will be returning to them in the future.

I was provided a cost estimate that was reasonable considering the amount of labor necessary. The vehicle repair was completed on time and within the cost estimate. Everyone seemed friendly and professional. I had a positive experience at this shop and have no reservations recommending them. I will return for future repairs.

Service was great and very friendly. I didn’t have a ride so I stayed in the shop and waited. Joe was very friendly and joked around with my kid. That was nice since I understand most business don’t appreciate you bringing your child to wait a couple hours in their shop and disrupting business. Last minute I asked for an oil change. They were busy but they got it done for me and very quickly too. It seemed like all the customers that came in were return customers because Joe knew everyone by name. I had never been there before but I was greeted in a very friendly professional manner. I couldn’t speak highly of this place. I am very please and I too will be a return client.

I was in town for a few weeks working. I was in search for I shop to perform my 30,000 mile maintenance for my Lexus RC 350. What I can say about this fine establishment is, they were reasonably quick and thorough, very friendly and down to earth, and they did not try to up charge me because I drive an "expensive car". I was accurately quoted before I came in and when I left, I ended up paying significantly less than what I would have at the Lexus dealership. It's a glorified Toyota for heaven sake. Thanks guys!!

Perfect is the best way to describe these guys, this place, and the manner in which they handle their business. They have no hidden agenda like so many other mechanics do where they try to sell you useless junk your car doesn't need. Dealership "diagnosed" my truck with a failed torque converter and wanted to charge for a transmission replacement totaling more than 6000 dollars. This awesome group of guys determined that was a lie in about an hour and fixed the actual issue while also providing me with education on component structure and functions to stay away from businesses trying to steal from me. Overall the most incredible experience I have ever had with any mechanic shop anywhere. Will for sure be coming back for anything my car will ever need to this spot and this spot only.

I have been meaning to post this, this review is long over due. My experience was amazing! My check engine light came on, the code said it was a transmission issue. I came to AAMCO with all the stress in the world weighing on my shoulders but Justice helped me out a lot, helping me with the best advice. Asking the technicians what was the best route for me to go. In the end I had to get my transmission replaced. Brooks called me, I told him my situation and he looked up the best quotes for me and got me a great deal and a good warranty. I was approved for financing was able to get my car back and back on the road. I am so happy and appreciate all the help that was given to me. When I got my car back I cried tears of joy on my way home. I was so scared that I wasn't going to be able to afford to fix my car. Having 3 kids and work I depend on my car very much. Thank you again from the bottom of my heart for all your guys help! And thank you for the technicians who put in the hours on my car, it is running great!

Our transmission catastrophe was a Nissan CVT in a 2012 Sentra, that is a problem plagued product that Nissan will not warranty. All quotes equaled the blue book value of the car. Our bad options were buy another car or replace transmission, we chose trans. AAMCO Chula Vista helped to reduce the cost and Ron T conferred with me every day of the Labor Day weekend. 5 star service, thank you.

Great place and very professional. Dealing with mechanics and shops is not always fun as you can't pin point which will be the honest ones. I went solely on their reviews and although I am in Lemon Grove I decided to bring my 93 Caprice wagon to get the AC fixed. Communication was great Ron responded to all my questions immediately via yelp message so I said I am in! I was told to speak to Justice the manager and I felt very confident after he explained to me the process. Not only did they fixed my old AC system they also retro fitted it to take the new R134. My wagon was ready the following day and blowing COLD air! Super awesome. Since I have been working on this wagon I never checked the AC system but I knew the blower was not working and it would take some knowledge and time to get it right. I am happy with the outcome and I will be bringing my cars to them from now on. Thank you so much.

The work was done in the estimated time given. Great customer service from Justice and the owner Ron. Thank you for your time.

I had a very very wonderful experience at this shop. During the initial setting of the service appointment, and to the very end of my appointment. That is why this shop and the team get (5) five stars.
It started with, Justice, :) setting the appointment, He was very courteous over the phone listing to my concerns about my car.
Justice, suggested an afternoon appointment at 2:00 pm. The service repair was to place the transmission gear ( thingamajig) in its socket.
Ian :) :) The car service technician who checked my car in.
He was professional polite and thorough as He asks questions about my car.
Ian, truly listen to me as a customer. He also answered all of my questions. ( Ian, did the repair(s) on my car. He did an awesome job! )
I left the vehicle and returned at about 3:30 pm. While I was there I got to meet the head of this amazing team, Justice :) :) The customer service manager.
The service is thorough and the work is excellent. This team of experts is professional, welcoming & patient the best customer service I have received in a long time. I will return because of the quality of work & excellent service, I received.
I also recommend to anyone reading this review, if you are in need of auto service to first see Justice & Ian, & the whole team at AAMCO at 1415 Broadway, in Chula Vista, Ca
You are sure to have a great experience from the beginning to the end. My Car (Calvin) is happy too!
Blessing to the team & stay safe.

They don't call to give updates all the time but that doesn't matter because the actual service/work being done more than makes up for that. Very professional. Transmission work is pricey no matter where you go but here it's worth the money and it gets taken care of relatively quickly.

I am really impressed with AAMCO. I was recommended AAMCO as a transmission specialist by my general mechanic because he was under the impression I needed a new transmission. I showed up pretty nervous and not totally sure I was ready to put out $3,000 for a new transmission. I spoke primarily to Justice and he explained that they would do a free diagnostic and not being work until they'd discussed it with me. This seems like a pretty standard auto body behavior but I haven't had a mechanic experience this clear cut in years. When they called to inform me of the damage it turned out to be spark plugs so that was probably my one free pass in 2020! Thank you again AAMCO for being reliable and professional!

Made my appointment online. (You should allow a business day for confirmation of your appointment.) When I arrived for my appointment the service manager, Justice, listened to my concerns and explained that an initial evaluation of the vehicle would check all of the things I mentioned and more. So we decided to do the initial evaluation and an oil and filter change then talk about what the evaluation turned up. At that point I went away to shop until Justice called to give me a report. About two hours later Justice called to tell me the van was ready to pick up. The mechanic had found and fixed a minor problem in the shift mechanism, but everything else was fine. He did the oil change as requested. The entire visit took about four hours. I felt that Justice was very professional and knowledgeable and the mechanic was efficient. All in all, I was very satisfied with my experience and I will be returning to this AAMCO in the future.

Father's Day came early this year for this Army Vet when my beautiful wife and kids had a Ford Raptor delivered to the house. A dream come true for me, being I first test drove one when it debuted in 2010. Of course, you can't keep a Raptor stock for long (one day in my case) so I needed to find someone to help turn big blue into a Velociraptor. I found a place, and whether you are looking to build a dream car or truck of your own, or your vehicle just needs a little TLC, Give Justice, Ian, and the boys at the AAMCO shop a call, and they will take care of the rest. Ron, Kudos to you sir, the boys at the shop blew away my expectations, the very high quality of customer service experience they deliver is #1 in my book! I found a home for all of my automotive needs. Thank you!!!

I recently bought a used car and wanted to get some preventive maintenance done. I messaged a few shops asking for a quote, they were the first to reply within mins with a quote that couldn't be beat. They performed a computer and drivetrain check free of charge, honored my quote, got the job done in a few hours saving me a good amount of $$ and they even offered me a ride home. This shop seemed honest, they have great customer service and my car runs great! I'm definitely coming back for any work I need done, thank you guys.

I really liked the service I received at Aamco. Jeff took the time to research and give me the cost of getting my alternator fixed when shopping for estimates. He was also kind enough to take my car in at the last minute when alternator broke the following day. I had mentioned the previous day that I didn’t want to bring my car in the following day since it was my birthday, but unfortunately I had no choice when my car stopped due to the alternator on the morning of my birthday. However I told him I needed to get my car running again but I needed to have my car back by 1pm cause I had Birthday plans. He told me to bring it in and that he’d have it done by 10:30am. I brought it in to the shop and it was ready by 9:30am. Great customer service from Jeff and his team. I’ll definitely be using their services again and will be recommending their shop.

I found this shop on Yelp after making calls and comparing rates with other shops in town. I needed to get my rear brakes and a belt replaced. I got a quote over Yelp from the shop and it was more than fair then the competition and they squeezed me in a few days later. After a few hours waiting my vehicle has new brakes and a belt and is running nicely. I saved myself a good amount of money (which Firestone quoted me significantly more and they were the ones who found the issues). This shop seemed honest in the fact they confirmed Firestone's diagnosis and even said I could have held off on the brakes for a bit (I decided to get them done anyway since it was passed the so called safe zone). I'd definitely come back again for any other problems I'd need fixed. They even have a 12 month/12,000 mile warranty for their work.

I originally inquired online about an A/C service and was quoted a fair price. When I went to take it in, they did their best to get my car into the rotation as I had to wait for my car. Jeff and team were good at setting my expectations and provided an estimate at no cost. I wasn't able to complete the service the same day, so I came back the following week once the part came in. Prices were fair to replace an A/C pressure switch and do a recharge. My A/C has been working properly ever since. Thanks guys!

Made an appointment for early morning after seeing all the great reviews. I had just bought my used Benz and the tranny was definitely acting funny. The last place I took it was a "Benz specialist" and they let me drive it after quoting me a ridiculous amount of money for tranny repair. Little did I know that it barely had any tranny fluid, I was aware of a leaky connector that these cars are notorious for. I came here and was not dissapointed, They flushed it, filled it, replaced the connector & also found a leaky gasket.
Maybe they're not the friendliest of folks (there was some review that had mentioned that) I had a great experience & they are by far the most honest and their price was unbeatable.
I will be taking all my cars here from now on.

I want to say thank you to the guys at AAMCO. I recently had my brakes done on my 96 Toyota Rav4 and they did a great job. These guys really take car of me and I trust them and that is hard to come by . And it is a great feeling knowing my cars are safe to drive.
I have been bringing my cars here since they first opened. I highly recommend them. Dan and his crew are amazing. Thank you for all you do.!!!!!!!

The one stop shop for all your Automotive needs. I highly recommend this place. They took real good care of my car and got it back up and running again better than the way I bought it. I'm super satisfied. All the guys there are great. They genuinely care about their customers... friendly...and honest. Most importantly they know their stuff. I'm definitely going back when I have Automotive issues again. 10 (star)'s if could.

I know enough about cars to do most things, but as a busy family man I don't have time to do my own work anymore. So, I came here I fully expecting for them to attempt to take me to the cleaners and claim that simple maintenance would unreasonably expensive because of something made up, or that everything would take much longer than needed. I talked to Ian. He was honest and straightforward. They fixed everything and they did notice a problem with a break line which I had previously noticed but failed to mention. They only charged me $70 for something everyone else said would be 200 and they had it done quickly! A+ experience

I brought my Audi A4 in for a fee initial diagnostic of what I thought was a transmission problem. They were quick and efficient with the diagnostic and it turned out it was something completely different, but they were able to handle that repair and gave me a good quote. A couple of hours later and it was good to go. It's been driving great since then - thanks guys!

I received a quote for service in a very timely manner! It was detailed and I felt very comfortable taking my vehicle there...without my husband or my dad. I say this because taking my vehicle any place for service gives me anxiety. In the past, I have fell victim to price gouging, and I believe it was because I know nothing about cars and repair-and previous shops can smell that on me. This has honestly been the first place I felt totally comfortable with, but that didn't stop me from forwarding my correspondence with the owner to my husband for a double check and the "go-ahead" for service. When I got there -with my 11 year old son in tow for added testosterone (not much but whatever)- I was helped by a very nice man,(Brandon?)who also provided us a ride home. I also noticed that there were several other customers there with lots of questions. The man that worked there, (Brandon?)was very friendly and thorough with everyone. He was efficient, courteous, and unlike other places I have been to, he didn't seem rushed or like he was rushing customers out the door. I had been taking our vehicles to the same place for the past 6 years and finally got out of my comfort zone and glad we did. This is our new go to place for our vehicles.

These guys really took care of me. I was leaking transmission oil Everywhere. They changed the gasket, filter, general transmission service, towed my car to their place, and gave me an oil change. Customer service was on point. Work performed in a timely manner. Car is running great!

They were great about explaining things and answering questions both on the phone and in person. Mechanics are knowledgeable and courteous as well. Fair prices for great work. Thanks Aamco

was having a vibrating noise coming from under my nissan xterra so i took it to AAMCO in Chula Vista and they asked one of their techs to ride with me to check the noise and after had the suv lifted to inspect further without having to make commitment to repair it,and found the problem was 2 bad U-joints on the drive shaft,gave me a quote to fix that seemed very reasonable,they even showed me the problem under the suv and said they would have it ready in 3 hours and i was happy to learn they finished before that and under the quoted price; the whole staff was super friendly and informative;i have finally found the place to take my truck for service instead of Nissan dealer.

Went in to fix a transfer case linkage issue on my Jeep. I brought the parts and asked how much to fix. They gave me a reasonable price and I said ok. Later that day I found out the parts I gave them did not work and they had already spent most of the day with them. The order new parts and the car was ready the next day. I was pleased to see they honored the original labor cost estimate, and even though I paid a bit extra for the parts, the overall experience was excellent. I will continue to come in and have my Jeep service here.

My first visit was a few months ago when I came in to get a 2nd opinion on the replacement of my transmission. They quickly got me in and the mechanic wanted to take me on a ride to show me that they found nothing wrong with the transmission. This saved me so much money and I decided to come back for my regular service. I called, got an appointment right away and had my service done. I was very happy with the service and highly recommend this shop.

About 2-3 weeks before Thanksgiving (2017), I noticed a knocking sound coming from the engine compartment of my 2012 Dodge Caravan. I knew it could be one of two things: either a rod bearing knock or an issue with lifters that this particular engine experiences. I called several (close to 10) shops in town for quotes and every single one of them said they couldn't provide me with any info until I came in with the van which I totally get if I wasn't knowledgeable about cars or if I hadn't already received an inspection from an independent mechanic.

In any case, one of the last shops I got in touch with was Aamco. I spoke with Brandon who had seen and heard about the exact issues I described in similar Doge Caravans/Chrysler T&C's and informed me that he was 99% confident that it was indeed one of those two issues and provided me with rough estimates for repairing or replacing the engine.

Long story short, the engine had a rod bearing knock and had to be replaced. Although paying for a replacement engine sucks, Brandon kept me in the loop during the entire process and even helped my family out with a discount on a rental car (since replacing an engine can take some time). Thanks to Brandon and his crew, my family was able to make our out-of-town trip happen over Thanksgiving.

I would highly recommend this shop for any issues you may be having with your car's engine.

These guys are really awesome I definitely appreciated their up front and honest answers to my ietions and concerns. I also felt that I got fair pricing for the major repairs I had accomplished and even though the job to several days longer to complete than expected the price did not change so I was pleased

Brandon and the awesome team at AAMCO has now bailed me out twice! My first experience with them was for an oil change, but on inspection they found that my front sway bar had come loose as well. Definitely not safe to drive around on! They solved the problem quickly and painlessly and I was on my merry way! Now my car is back in after I came out of work to find some sort of mystery fluid leaking out from underneath it... Brandon was my hero again! Even though it was closing time, he talked me through how to get my car to the shop while avoiding damage and now the team is fixing my baby. I seriously wouldn't take my car anywhere else!!!

Brought my Lancer in because the engine was bucking at stops and was idling at close to 3000rpms. Was helped by Ian at the front desk and they quickly found a small piece of plastic lodged in the idle air control valve. Fixed just like that. I will definitely be bringing my car back in the future and highly recommend their services.

Had the clutch on my car go out - I called up Aamco after reading reviews and after talking to Tom I knew I had picked the right place. He took the time to talk me through the process and potential outcomes and options before I even dropped off my car. Once they did examine it, he gave me clear information and straight advice - never did I feel pressured or talked down to like you might get at other places. They did the job well and the price was very fair. I'm definitely coming here first for both my vehicles from now on!

I've found my new repair shop! I had the clutch go out and called up to arrange an inspection. Tom was very friendly, patient and explained everything in a way I could understand without being condescending or high-pressure. I felt like I was the most important/only customer he had, which is pretty rare at repair shops. They did the repair quickly at a fair price and afterwards showed me the parts and talked me through the problem/repair. I'm definitely coming back here for both of my cars.

Went here just to get a quote because my transmission wasn't shifting into gear properly after a botched transmission replacement from a different shop. They took a look at it and actually adjusted it for me and didn't charge me for the adjusting. Thanks Tom. A bunch of great guys over there! I'll definitely be back for any other repairs.

My husbands and my first time here and I immediately felt comfortable and like my car was in good hands. These people have great knowledge and they are honest. You won't get anything done you don't absolutely need. The place is clean and everyone is friendly. Tom was super nice and a little bit of a comedian =) He was also very helpful over the phone when initially setting up the appointment. They took my car out for a test drive and quickly zeroed in on what was causing the sound I came in for. There's a clean comfortable waiting area with a Keurig and a few choices of coffee and real creamer & sugar. Plus a mini fridge with bottled water. Clean private bathroom too. I'll be back with any other auto needs in the future. Thanks guys.

Came to day for service with my Toyota 4runner. The customer service was very professional and fast. This time I did just the oil change but definitely will be back for other upgrades that I want to do to my car special after I saw this beast at the lift.

Very pleased with the service and attention to detail present at this location.

I drive a turbo Subaru which, due to its role as a sports car driven as it should be, requires quite a bit more attention and maintenance than most cars.

I don't have the space or time to do my own work on the car, and have had difficulty finding a shop that won't lie to upsell unnecessary stuff, or didn't have the knowledge or equipment to properly diagnose an issue, or who had broken something while fixing something else and attempted to cover it up, overfilled fluids, stripped lug nuts, or spilled oil all over the engine bay.

I was referred here by a friend who knows how touchy I can be with my car. Not only do they have a tech nerd who loves Subarus and instinctively knew about the specific oil filter needed on these engines, he addressed a couple other concerns I had with the car in a friendly and educational way.

Great experience all around. I'll be bringing my car here from now on.

I was referred to this AAMCO by my brother because of his trust and praise of Dan and Ian. I initially came in last year just to have my CRV checked out and to ensure it's overall safety for my trips to and from oakland. From talking on the phone with Tom, to meeting (and chatting with) Dan, and eventually having my car fixed, it was by far the best experience I've ever had with mechanics. As a female, I am slightly hesitant to deal with car problems or going into shops because of past experiences, but this AAMCO is truly a place of kind and honest people. In a more recent experience here, I brought in my Toyota 4Runner to get checked over and fixed (after buying it used) and they gave me fair prices, didn't try to fix things that didn't need to be fixed, and made suggestions for what to look for and be concerned about in the future. Dan, Ian, and Tom have all helped me feel comfortable taking my car into a shop knowing the work will be done well and won't empty my bank account. They also have a fridge full of cold bottled water in the lobby which is really like the cherry on top. I still think Tom needs some music to listen to while he works. Thanks for everything guys!!

I can't speak highly enough about this shop. I'm from Connecticut, have lived all over being in the military, and proud to say this is the most professional, reasonable, and honest garage I've been to. I've always had older vehicles and would trust Ian to work on anything I've got a problem with. Tom at the desk is always knowledgeable and fair with pricing and the work details. I've been there two separate times now in the past few months and had a great experience each time. I feel fortunate to have finally found a trustworthy auto shop, 100% recommend you bring your vehicle here.

I brought my mother here because she received a Check Engine light indicating a Transmission Failure. We had called 15 minutes before they close for the day but they were nice enough to wait for us.

It was a little hard to locate it at first because it's inside the complex but the office is very new and clean. The staff is friendly as well, they ran a diagnostic test and then they advised us to go to the dealer. The manager gave us the proper information and codes to take to the dealership since the problem was caused by an outstanding recall.

If you are looking for a trustworthy repair place, you should come check this place out. You may pay a little bit more than a mom or pop shop but you are paying for quality service and honest employees.

I came in today just as preventative measures for a used car I recently purchased. I must say, the place is clean. The service is great, and the staff is honest. I know about cars so I know what to look out for at these places. These guys are straightforward. They didn't find anything too bad on my car and even changed a fuse for free. Jorge (the service manager) is a pleasure to work with. His team is friendly and knowledgeable

Came into AAMCO to get some suspension work done the other day. Was greeted with a big smile and explained what would be fixed, roughly how long, and the price for the job. The quoted price was far better than any other quotes given to me from other local shops which is the main reason I came to this shop. I had my truck back within an hour and was on my way as happy as could be. The professionalism of the staff and the quick quality work coming out from this shop is exceptional and has definitely gained a customer for life! Thanks again guys!

I brought my 2008 Toyota Matrix to Aamco for routine service after many years of using Toyota for service, and I must say I was impressed by the personal level of service shown by Dan and his crew. I was greeted immediately, (no wait), and they spent a lot of time looking over my past records to see what has been done and what may be needed. After a lunch break, my car was ready, and the service was clearly thorough, as a number of needs were attended to, ie... tire rotation, without my calling it to their attention. I feel very confident they checked all the boxes and topped all the fluids and most importantly, the bill was very reasonable. Nice to have personalized service that is so lacking these days. I will be back!

Kudos to the entire Dan Lingel team.. You were all great and professional. Your facility was super clean and welcoming. My 14 year old Volvo S60 is running great after the tune up work you did on it. Thanks for taking the time to educate me on the car's other deferred maintenance that it requires. Definitely will come back for future work. Will recommend your garage and team to my friends and family!
