AAMCO installed a clutch assembly, I'm very satisfied with the work that was performed on my car!
Joe's the man. Brought my car in for loud screeching noise when AC is turned on, got it fixed the same day. Make sure you schedule an appointment. Thanks Joe!!
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...
It was Great, the place was really busy, but took good care of me. Good prices. Manager Joe at the front office was very knowledgeable, offered me cold water while I waited, and made me feel welcome and like I'm part of the AAMCO Family. Will definitely return for other services in the near future. Thanks again for the Awesome Customer Service !!!!!
The service was great. Joe did a great job of trying to get my truck ready quickly and was good at communicating the issues. My truck runs great now, even though it was in rough shape when I brought it in. Thank you to the whole team. Really appreciate the hard work
My experience with this shop was amazing. I would highly recommend to anyone who needs to get things done for their vehicle! Joe was very professional and genuine the entire time I was in contact with him about my car.
This place is good the staff was very helpful and friendly they explained what was going on with my car and got it taken care of in a good amount of time
Got in quickly, they identified the problem and quickly made repairs at a good price.
Very happy with their work.
Excellent service all around! Highly recommended!
Came in with a check engine light, was worried it'd be an expensive issue. Luckily it wasn't bad, I just didn't tighten my spark plugs enough On the positive side, I'm glad to find a trustworthy place to go for future car maintenence instead of trying it myself. Thank you Joe
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.
Amazing customer service from Joe Woodward from day 1 that i went to inquire on a quote to repair my air conditioner of my car he makes sure and explained so well what had to be done and really shows all the knowledge he has he shows he loves what he does and really loves helping customers that go in. I had the work done on my car and i can't express how happy I'm so far with the service done and I'm glad i went ahead and decided to do it at your business i will most diffenetly refer family and friends here for any car issues you have amazing work technician and most of all the customer service is amazing you have great employees keep up the amazing job thank you again to John and as well the technician Max
The best thing since light bulbs, crushed ice and polyester pants. Joe and staff were knowledgeable, professional and courteous. Pricing was reasonable. Service professional. I will return.
They do way more than transmissions. Very concientious, no high pressure.
Great atmosphere! Open on Saturday's for the full day which is great for weekday worker's!
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.
I had a great experience I dealt with Joe and we had a great conversation but more importantly he got me taken care of in a timely fashion and was able to give get me my car within a few days I'm very happy with the customer service. He gave me a will not exceed number right off the bat which I was able to mentally prepare for the hit it ended up being less. I had a great experience with the shop now it's a matter of how long will it last. But yeah Joe was great five stars from me.
The owner responded quickly to my emails regarding service. My car was fixed as promised. No complaints! Great to have AC running super cold. Just in time for summer.
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
Thanks to AAMCO Chula Vista I am a very cool driver:)
I needed my transmission checked out super last minute, and these guys were able to run a diagnostic and pinpoint were my leak was coming from. They saved me a ton of money, when other places either ignored me or just assumed the worse for my transmission. 10/10 coming to this location again.
I took my car to another place that charged me 100 dollars to "diagnose" my check engine light, and then they told me they couldn't fix it. AAMCO diagnosed the problem quickly, with no charge and advised me that they didn't feel any repair was needed at this time. They were professional and had good customer service.
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.
Joe was great !
I had a wonderful experience, Joe up front was professional and polite and they were done with my car in the time estimated. Thank you!!!
Very professional. Friendly customer service Highly recommend this place.
Had my transmission replaced here. Much better pricing than any dealership. Staff was friendly and turnaround was quick. And they provided warranty on the parts
These guys are awesome! I went to 3 different Transmission shop in town and these guys had, hands down, the best facilities, service and beat the other 2 shops quotes by over 50% less. On top of all of that, they where able to get my parts shipped and in my car by the next day!! Joe, you and your team are rockstars and i want to thank you for all your help!!
I was experiencing a transmission fluid leak. The initial inspection was performed quickly and I received the results a few hours later. The problem was explained to me thoroughly. 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.
Joe is very friendly and informative. He made me feel very comfortable about getting my car serviced. Definitely will be back in the future.
Joe was my tech, from the start he was extremely friendly and helped me out with all my questions. I was very appreciative of that since it was my first experience. Replacing the transmission usually takes a few days as other shops quoted me however, they got it done in less than 24 hours! Was so happy to get my car in and out! At check out Ian was very friendly and patient with the checkout process and also answered more questions I had. Definitely recommend this place, seriously trustworthy with cars!
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. Thanks to Joe and his team for getting me in and out quickly!
Awesome work on my transmission. Joe is funny and very helpful dude. He's very detailed in explaining exactly what's wrong with your vehicle, no sugar coating and will not make you spend money on things your vehicle doesn't need atm. Will be back again
Great guys very knowledgeable about everything I asked. They are fast and their prices are very reasonable. Highly recommended
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!!
I reached out to a few different shops on Yelp to get my Mercedes Benz brakes replaced. They were super responsive and honest about the pricing. Dropped it off in the morning and picked it up same day, they did a fantastic job choosing performance parts at an affordable price. Definitely recommend them!
It's nice to know that some people still know what good customer service means. They were professional, clear in explaining problem, solved it on time and at a fair price. I will definitely go back. Joe was very helpful.
Wonderful shop. 100% satisfied and will return, if needed for other work. You won't be disappointed!
Very professional and quick service
I highly recommend this business! They are quick to get back to you with your questions and help you set up your appointment. The service was very professional and very quick! Very friendly service and really seem to know what they are doing! I will come back again!
I have a 2014 Ford Mustang GT that I love and they took the best of care with her! My car wasn't idling right, my check engine light came on and my car wasn't performing as it should. I called them and asked if they had any last minute available appointments and they told me to come right in. They we're quick to figure out the problem and quick with their service as well! Last minute appointment and got my car back within a couple hours! The staff was awesome, the service was terrific and I have my car performing even better than before. Definitely going back for anymore future service needed. I highly recommend this team at this AAMCO!
Well if I was rating 1-10, 10 being the best service, I would say joe and the crew were 100. They were communicative, respectful, and made me feel like I was important and my time was taken into account. I will definitely only be doing business with you guys from now with any of my car needs!
Special thanks to Joe though, he is incredible! He really knows what he is doing and I trust his opinion completely.
If you can tell him and the crew, Kaitlynn and Levi are so grateful for their hard work and it does not go unnoticed.
I had AAMCO Transmissions give the car a look over (just bought it) and they provided awesome service. He let me know what he saw wrong with the vehicle and gave me reasonable prices. Above all, they were extremely truthful and trustworthy. Two big thumbs up from me! Thanks AAMCO!
I love bringing my car here! I trust them 100 percent. I'm so picky about who touches my car but this place is the best! I've taken it to ford over and over and had so many problems with their service. Every time I bring my car here I just leave it and they call back asking if I would like my service done without doing it right away and slamming me with a big bill. My transmission was broken and it feels brand new! Thank you guys so much!
Great experience. Joe was an awesome guy that took great care of my car, was super straightforward, didn't try to upsell me on anything, and got me and my car in and out of there in no time. Definitely coming here from now on and encouraging all my family and friends to as well. Thanks Joe and Chula Vista Aamco for the exceptional service!
They rebuilt my transmission and while it was not inexpensive my vehicle is paid off. If I can drive it for 10 more years it is worth it by not having a new car payment.
I had a good experience! Joe did a good job taking care of my car and he made sure everything was done right and at a timely manner. I would highly recommend this business!
One of the best coolest mechanics I have been To in years. He was honest , a nice guy to chat with and fixed what he needed to fast and perfect!!! Will return any time I need car work. Best in Chula Vista.
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.
Went in for maintenance on my transmission and an oil change to. Spoke to a gentleman by the name of joe. He said he'll check out the transmission before working on it. Then he'll let me know what exactly needs to be done and he'll call me before doing the work on transmission. Also he'll go ahead and change the oil first. Five stars for customer service, cleanliness of the sho and professionalism.
Come in to AAMCO 11/24/2020 I needed to have my transmission looked at and serviced. While I that going on I might as well have my oil changed too. Joe helped me out and let me know what he found. I authorized them to fix the problems. And a couple days later the job was done. I left a satisfied customer, thanks joe and staff.
Made an appointment over the phone for a CVT transmission fluid change on my Nissan Sentra. They did not sugarcoat the status of my transmission. I went 35,000 past the recommended change interval of 60,000 miles. I paid using my Synchrony credit card. All paperwork was printed and easy process to receive my vehicle back.
I scheduled an appointment with them for a transmission bench rebuild for one of my own customers. Dropped off the transmission and it was rebuilt and they got it done in about a day and a half and the price ended up being just about what they estimated as well. Installed the transmission and test drove the vehicle for a long trip and had zero issues, no leaks, and it shifts smooth in and out of all gears. Joe was very professional and I will be using them in the future!
I had my transmission serviced a few months back-changed my fluid. Justice asked me some questions on why I was getting the service and if there was anything wrong with the transmission. After the service was done, I was contacted by Ron (one of the owners) to make sure everything had gone well. Top notch service!
They are amazing people who know how to get the job done! I appreciate their help so much.
I got my transmission work done and the technicians that worked on my car did an outstanding job. I'm very happy with the work and it's a joy to drive my car once again. I will recommend this shop to all my Friends and Colleagues.
I've been here a few times now. On each occasion, the team here at Aamco was honest and professional about services I needed that other repair shops claimed would cost me hundreds of dollars more. I've saved myself and my wallet money by getting a second opinion here. I'd strongly recommend you give this shop a try for any of your car needs.
Accurate quotes and quick work.
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! I will be recommending you guys in the future.
I was pleased with the prompt service I received from AAMCO. I went in for an oil change and multi-point inspection on a 2008 Mustang with less than 40,000 miles. I was happy that the car is in good shape and didn't require any additional services. This AAMCO location is our new place for car care.
The team at Aamco Chula Vista exceeded my expectations. Ian and Ron were wonderful explaining exactly what I needed to get my vehicle back on the road and at reasonable price too.
My customer experience was great. Your team is very professional, good customer service especially on diagnosing my car problem. Car runs great and problem was solved and I'm very satisfied. I would highly recommend your automotive service.
Even though the staff was short one man the service was responsive and polite. 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.
I finally completed my 500 mile break in for my new Nitro 5.29 re-gear. I brought my rig in for a differential oil change. The staff were professionals and listened to my specific needs. They were able to accommodate me in very fast and efficient even for a Friday. I will be returning for all my transmission needs.
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.
I had an appointment to get my transmission fluid changed. Upon arrival, I was greeted by Justice who asked a few questions about my car and why I was doing the fluid change. 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.
Hi!! This is Isabel Espinosa.... I had a great customer service experience....since the second I called Justice listened very carefully to my situation. The whole proses went very smooth. The whole experience felt 5 star. No hidden fees..all the explanation was clear as to what was going on with my car and no surprises at the of payment. Thank you very much.
If you want honest Mechanics this is where you go!
They have done motor and transmission mounts on my mom's Van as well as a transmission swap in my old jeep. They are upfront, fast, and easy to work with. We will continue to return with all our family cars.
The guys at AAMCO got me right in an assessed the issue and made quick work of the problem. I would recommend them for any work you need done to your vehicle.
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 loved my experience, they were friendly and helpful. They addressed my problem N fixed another part, they really did a good job
Very kind front desk associate answered all of my questions professionly. Although I only went in for a car inspection, the service I received would make me come back again if I needed repairs.
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!
It's been a great experience having the shop work on my vehicle they are fast they know what they're doing and they're very professional and I felt very taken care of I will definitely be returning to the shop to get more work done on my car thanks Aamco
Hi, Ron I can tell u I had a great experience. Ur tech that worked on my truck did a great job. Also Justice is a very friendly and professional guy. I am a very meticulous on the work that is done to my truck/ baby.. I will continue to get my services done there at ur shop..I think u should give ur guys a pat on the back.. And maybe some lunch.. Thank u Nery Escobar
I brought my truck in for a warranty repair transmission. They did a great job! I will bring my future repairs needed there. Ian did a great job answering my questions. Thanks!
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.
AAMCO of Chula Vista employees are excellent and honest. Ron, Justice, and Ian were upfront with everything. The inspection before they gave me my estimate was very detailed. Great job AMMACO of Chula Vista
I brought my 2004 expedition to the shop for a full tune up and transmission oil change they did a great job, and the guy on reception was a great help I definitely will recommend to this shop very professional see you guys soon
I was really impressed with the service and the speed! I appreciated the free diagnostics which determined the clutch on my truck needed to be replaced. Employees Justice and Ian were friendly without the high pressure sales tactics. The repair was completed in one day and is now running great. I will definitely recommend AAMCO to family and friends! Thanks!!
These guys are so nice and really go out of there way to try to get the lowest price for you. They even will stay late to get your car fixed. I'm really glad I chose to bring my car here.
Hey Ron! I had very satisfactory experience with your team! They did a great job and will definitely be coming back for all my car needs that you guys can help with! Thank you guys so much again!
My husband (Mario Medrano) recently took his Chevy Silverado to this location to have them rebuild his transmission from start to finish, they were great!!! Great communication and great service! Overall, we are happy with their service and would definitely go back if needed! Thank you guys.
They worked very quickly and Justice even came in on his day off to accommodate me to pick up my car! I also used Yelp to find this place and they connected me with Ron who had been super helpful, quick to respond, and answered all my questions. Def recommend this place, great team!
Since I had a positive experience with the business it's hard to find/trust anyone else to fix my car. Thank you for being honest in your service!!
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!!!
Aamco was quick and efficient, no high pressure sales, and their price was good. Will likely bring my vehicle back in the future.
Great job - you guys were able to attend to my car repair (transmission coolant line) same day. Thanks a bunch, Mickey.
Aamco really takes good care of you. Trusted brand!
Excellent. Great service. Thank you.
The issue I had with my transmission was handled fast and professional with a very skilled mechanic, I would recommend...
Top knot shop very good mechanics have both my car service there in the last few years recommended highly
Lexus GX 470 Great service backed by quality and knowledgeable transmission experts. Back in the road again. Thank you
Great honest service from this garage!
I wish all shops were as honest as you all, I will come back every time.
Service was simply outstanding. Everything was explained in detail.
Excellent customer service. Thank you Jeff and Ian.
Aamco Chula Vista provides excellent service!!! Thank you Jeff and Ian.
Aamco Chula Vista provides excellent service!!! Thank you Jeff and Ian.
Great customer service. Went above what the they said they would check. Great communication, kept me informed on everything going on.
The experience was excellent, extraordinary customer service by Jeff, everything on time and transparent, I already recommended with my brother. Excellent team.
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.
Extremely great service! Definitely will use this company again. They really ease my problem about my vehicle. They customer service was good and I was treated nicely and professionally. The crew was very accurate and efficient to their work too. I was very much happy when they finished it quickly and my car was in good condition. If you are having problem to your vehicle try this company. Highly recommend!
AAMCO Chula Vista replaced my brakes. They were friendly, knowledgeable and reasonably priced. Thanks AAMCO!
Responded right away with quote and had my car in and out quickly. Found and fixed all the problems right away
Very professional and prompt service; I will keep coming back to service my vehicles here. Great job Ian!
The service was fast and friendly. The work was quality and they had helpful suggestions for payment plans, rentals, and very detailed information about all options available.
Jeff was absolutely wonderful and so helpful when helping me fix my coolant leak! He was informative, honest and straightforward with pricing and timing estimates as well as willing to work with my schedule. I will definitely be coming back for all my future maintenance and repairs!
Jeff and the team are honest, fair and fantastic will never repair something that doesnt need it. Nice to have a shop that is honest and does great work.
I had great experience with aamco. Very friendly and straightforward , i didn't feel like they were just trying to get money from me. I was quoted a service price and when i came to pick up they beat quote by 1000$. Transmission feels brand new. Very satisfied!
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.
The staff (Jeff) is exceptionally honest and forthcoming. No deception or hidden agenda at this location. I highly recommend this Aamco location!
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 love these guys are so honest down-to-earth trustworthy I recommend them highly Ian the mechanic is a great guy
Great customer service by Jeff.
Service was fabulous I was able to walk in and have car done same day. Jeff gave outstanding customer service. Would recommend them to anyone.
Jeff is a really friendly and straightforward guy. I set an appointment the day I made a phone call and they promptly took care of my maintenance request. Definitely coming back for future Transmission Flushes!
The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. Jeff took care of us and was very professional and upfront. He gave us all our options and they got our car taken care of in the time frame we were quoted.
Honest, efficient and very reasonable prices! I came in with a mystery issue & a car stuck in park. Jeff & his amazing team found the issue, solved it and got me back on the road the next day! They took the time to explain everything and answer all my questions patiently. My new go to place for car maintenance! They've gained a new loyal customer! Thanks again, Jeff & Crew!
Great team! Very friendly and knowledgeable! Highly recommend.
These guys were awesome!
Outstanding customer service! Frank and Ian were very knowledgeable and presented great options on the phone and in person for the clutch service I was looking for. They will definitely be the first folks and auto repair shop I talk to for future work. Clutch being broken in, but all seems working fine right now. Thanks AAMCO Chula Vista!
AAMCO was professional and honest. That is a rare quality now days. Thank you.
Had a great experience with the staff at AAMCO. They were thorough and informative with the process of getting my car worked on.
Been through a number of Auto repair shops, this has been a very welcome change. Aamco has been up front and straight forward with the repairs first to a transmission on one vehicle and a minor repair to another. I think I've found our new Auto repair shop.
Jeff kept me in the loop the whole time while my car was there for tranny work. Great service all the way around.
great customer service and friendly people at this location
Took in my Nissan 370z for an oil change. Jeff was extremely helpful with any questions or concerns I had. I’ll be coming here from now on.
Great local business with excellent customer service.
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!
Life it's us with unexpected events that sometime leave us with our backs against the wall. I'm no exception.
These guys checked my vehicle and saw I needed brake service immediately.
Couldn't afford it so I was going to hold off.
Jeff, took care of me. Called and said shop will allow me to make payments. Thanks guys! I will send all my peers to you guys.
Got my transmission rebuilt 4mos ago and my car has been smooth sailing thanks to Aamco.
Ian and the guys, Thanks!
Dan and his crew are amazing. Completely worth the drive to South Bay from North Park. Thanks guys for doing a great job on my brakes. This is a full service auto repair. If they can't do it, there are multiple auto services in the same parking lot.
Dan and his crew worked on my wife's brakes and on my truck. I must say this AAMCO shop knows their stuff. Best service and parts. If you need anything done to your car or truck this is the place. They don't just do transmissions. Do yourself a favor and try them out. Thank you Dan, Ian, Ismael and Jose for taking care of us. See you when I come to get my clutch done.
Very good customer service. Came for oil change they were really professional and fast.
Quicker than expected. Was treated well. Great job!
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
I love these guys are so honest down-to-earth trustworthy I recommend them highly Ian the mechanic is a great guy
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.
Great service very professional. I do all my maintenance at this place and love it.
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.
Exelent service 100% recommend this awesome place they have coffee they call the Audi dealer and they find out there wasrecall in my Audi plus they have free check engine light profesional employee and mecanics this is the first time y fell happy goin to the mechanic :)
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!
These guys were amazing. Very clean and very professional shop. Everyone treated me with respect and provides vey honest answers and opinions. They fulfilled every service they promised. I needed an entire new transmission and they took care of it promptly and my car runs like its new. I would highly highly recommend using their services.
