The first time I went to Carlsbad Auto it was after researching reputable mechanics... after looking for a day or two I decided to take my car to them. I've now been their loyal customer for 5 years, I take all my cars to them and will forever. They don't overcharge, in fact no one does it for less, if they know someone who cn beat their price by even $40 they'll tell you who they are, give you a name, number and address as well as their price. Who does that? I love these guys. Stu, Greg and their team has always treated me well, they're so kind and the work is done right... and quick. They tell me what needs to be done, what should be done and what could be done to be pro-active; and let me decide what work to do. Today I went in and Stu immediately recognized me, smiled and said Hi. He asked how I was doing and I told him I had recently been laid off... he referred me to another vendor who could do the job for $40 less... he actually cared about me and my recent financial chrisis in losing my job. I was so impressed... this was a relatively minor repair (busted passenger window) when I told the other vendor Stu sent me they gave me a $50 referral discount dropping my original estimate from $250 to $150. These guys are amazing and I will never take my car or anyone elses anywhere else ...unless he tells me to ;) Find out for yourself, next time you need something done see what they say first, what's the worst thing that can happen? You save hundreds or thousands of dollars? Awesome. Thanks Guys, You're truly wonderful people.
