The only place my family trusts with our cars. With 3 young kids it's important to keep our cars safe and in running order, Todd, Al and the rest of the team are completely honest, up front, no gimmicks, no up sales and overall just great! They pride themselves on their work and always strive to fix it! Thank you Todd and Al!

This family-run auto repair shop is the only place I trust in town. Despite the Del Mar location, their prices are reasonable and competitive. I trust Todd completely and know he won't suggest unnecessary repairs on my car. When my husband was looking at used cars, we brought it here for an inspection. Within minutes, Todd explained that he'd spotted a few major issues with the car and recommended we not go any further with the inspection. He didn't charge us a thing. And that's how I'd describe Todd and Del Mar Automotive - honest, respectable and trustworthy. It's a life changer when you have a mechanic you can trust!

Got my oil changed here a month ago. This is a great mechanic shop with very friendly workers. Even though I had a long wait (they were missing a certain part) the mechanics let me know what what going on and had coffee and cookies while I waited. After the oil change I asked them about a problem I had been having with my car, and they checked it out and said they could have it fixed by the next day! Then even had complimentary shuttle ready to drive me back to my house. Overall, no one likes to dish out money to have their car fixed, but they helped mediate the sting I would have felt at any other shop. Thanks guys, I'll be back.

I have been going to Del Mar Automotive for close to 2 years now. Every time I need something fixed on either of my vehicles they are there to help. Wether it was the brakes on my girlfriends car or the clutch on my pickup they knew exactly what was wrong and fixed in a timely manner. Nothing has ever gone wrong due their work. I would recommend these guys for your vehicles' next untimely repair. And for regular maintenance as well.

Over the years I read where they get recognition for best auto shop in and around north county. I gave them a try last year and they won me over big time. I find them to be honest and efficient and they do good work. I've been back several times and each time I have more confidence in them. Today I had a tune up along with brakes and a few other things that went wrong on a 10 year old Jaguar X Type. When I picked up the car, the price was fair and they gave me their February promotion of 10 per cent off which I never asked for. They are accommodating in giving me a ride home and even have an on-line site that keeps track of your vehicle repair history and the ability to book an appointment that gets confirmed then and the day before. Really nice guys who work there...I think they are the owners, along with an employee Seth. Over the years I've been taken advantage of at other repair shops but truly never got bad vibes from this company. They're professional, honest, and do good work. Nothing more a woman can ask for when she brings her car in for service. I would highly recommend them.

This place is the best! Todd took the time to explain our engine problem and to personally diagnose our car problem. He is a God fearing family man who really cares about your situation. May God continue to bless him and Al's business. They deserve more than five stars. Garages like theirs are rare. How I wish I lived closer! Im 100 miles away but worth every mile! I hope you check them out :)

My boyfriend has been taking his car to Del Mar Auto for years. I recently needed a new valve cover gasket and a new air filter replaced in my Scion TC. My dealership, Kearny Mesa Toyota, quoted me around $700. I called Del Mar Auto for comparison and they said it would be less than $200. I took my car into their shop. They replaced the parts and returned my car the same day, and the bill was actually less than $200! They are genuine and are not out to take advantage of drivers who are less than familiar with their auto parts. Thank you Del Mar Auto!

Great honest auto service! Ran by father and son so they have low overhead and charge you a fair price. I heard they have been around since 1992, it means something when you've been around for 20 years. Had my car towed here once because of minor issue and they didn't charge a penny for the repair. Highly recommended!

These guys are great. Super friendly, straight honest, and incredibly helpful. I always dread going to an auto mechanic shop because I feel like I'm going to get screwed- not here. I will absolutely not go anywhere else now that I found this shop.--UPDATE--My check engine light came on again about a month and a half later for my Catalytic Converter problem. Todd called me and explained what he thinks was happening and we agreed that I needed to return to the guy who installed my Cat a few months back. I can't stress enough that Todd runs the best auto shop you'll ever encounter.

Just had my car serviced by these guys and am very happy. The car had an oil leak and they took the time to find the leak, tell me what it was and didn't charge me for the half hour they spent examining it. I had previously been told by another shop that the engine had to come out and it was going to cost thousands. The guys and Del Mar Automotive explained it was only a minor leak and called me an hour later with a complete quote.Very happy with their attitude, they are friendly and I love to support local businesses. Also, these guys are proper mechanics who diagnose and fix problems - very hard to find skilled mechanics any more.They will be getting my business from this point onwards.
