Customer Comments and Reviews

I have been a customer for over 15 years, and that says a lot! Trust is very important when I take my car for repair and Carlsbad Auto Service never disappoints me. The people working there are knowledgeable, trustworthy and friendly. Stu is very detail oriented and Wayne, the owner is very honest. I would not go anywhere else as long as they remain as good as they are, and I have no doubt they will.Ambra T. - Carlsbad, CA

As always, Carlsbad Auto Service is professional, efficient, honest and friendly. I wish I’d found them years ago….They’re the BEST!Blue G. - Carlsbad, CA

My car had something wrong with the engine last week, so we had it towed to their shop over the weekend. They are AWESOME! They kept in contact with us, were honest, talked us through everything they were doing or going to do, and gave us a VERY reasonable and affordable price. Stu is great! I will definitely be taking my car back here when it needs something done.Alicia G. - Carlsbad, CA

A+” I have been going there for 20 years. I’m extremely comfortable that they are doing the work that NEEDS to be done – and advising me about issues that may become problems down the road. Stu & Greg are extremely knowledgeable and very accommodating. The owners, Wayne & Janet are honest and fair. I send my kids there and have recommended several friends. Richie G. - Carlsbad, CA
