I am an internee at Carlsbad Auto Service under my mentor, Andrew Luna. This is not only a review in my own opinion as well as others opinions about the shop itself but it is also a comparison to surrounding shops in the Carlsbad area. Their website is carlsbadautoservice.com Starting off, my own opinion about Carlsbad Auto Service is all but good things. There are seven people working under the employment of Wayne and Janet Milak. The technicians are Nick, Andrew (alignment specialist), Glen (alignment specialist), Joe (smog check specialist) and Jose (oil change specialist). The two very kind and welcoming service writers are Stu and Greg. Being here for only 3 Weeks I was able to meet and work with just about every one in the shop. All of them are very professional in not only their work but as well as their attitude. Some days are different than others but every day I saw a good attitude towards the customers as well as each other. All of them, except for Jose due to him being new to the shop and not yet getting a chance to take the classes, are ASE certified. What this means is they are all Highly trained professionals and being ASE certified means you are some of the best in the business. They do their work in a quick, professional and kindly manner. The service writers will greet you with a smile as you walk in and ask "What is wrong with my car?" Some other people have also said many good things about the shop as well. A few examples are: "The customer service is great and the service on my car was even better!" - Citysearch. " The service i received since 2004, has always been professional and very satisfactory- since my car was very old I have been well satisfied. Thanks to Carlsbad Auto Service." - Gorden D "I believe you are the best mechanic auto service I have ever been to. I have been blessed with you guys. Thank you so much!" - Susie C. The last two are from Yellowpages. The BBB also gives it an A+. "I've gone to these guys for an alignment and smog check. The pricing was very fair and the guys were very friendly. From a customer" On Kudzu they have a 5 star rating and all 18 out of 19 comments are 5 stars. The only one star was due to the shop being fairly busy with work and was not able to get to the customers car in time. There are many auto repair shops in Carlsbad. Carlsbad Auto Service has an over all rating of 5 stars, A-1 Auto Repair has an over all rating of 4 stars, Big-O-Tires has an overall rating of 3 stars, Dragmaster has an overall rating of 3 stars and Autosport Shaws has a 4 star rating. All these ratings are based on the average number stars given by all the websites I researched and are out of 5 stars.
