I had my car repaired and smogged here recently. I am new to the area and did not know what to expect. They were fantastic- far exceeded my expectations. Ralph was a patient good communicator and the shop delivered. Costs were very reasonable and the repair work was good.

5 star review by John Rodenhausen - Carlsbad, CA
Once again, Carlsbad Auto saved the day! My check engine soon light came on. That afternoon, I called and Greg said I could come in the very next day. I took the car in early the next day, and got a ride home to wait for the results. A couple of hours later, the call came as to the diagnosis and the problem was fixed the same day. I got a ride back to pick up my car. Great job. Thanks so much. I have been a customer for several years and have never been disappointed.

As a woman it is important to trust my auto mechanic shop as I feel women can be taken advantage of in this area. I have found Mike at Carlsbad Auto to be professional, informative and genuinely helpful in answering my questions and helping diagnose my issues.

5 star review by George Skinner - Carlsbad, CA
These guys have taken really good care of my vehicle, for years. I am a solo woman traveler, who likes to off-road in the desert. They are trustworthy and always makes sure everything is on point with my car, before I hit the road. Highly recommended.
