I just moved into the neighborhood and needed an oil change for my car. There are so many auto shops in San Marcos! How to choose? I happened to get a welcome to the neighborhood coupon in the mail from Fast Automotive Center. So I checked them out on yelp and found that they have positive reviews. After calling to make an appointment for a couple days out, I showed up with my car for my oil change and was told it would be 30 minutes. They actually did call me and finish my oil change in 30 minutes! Ralph at the front desk was friendly and professional. It was the easiest and least stressful oil change of my life! I'll be going back for future car issues. They also did not try to up sell me on "necessary repairs" which I greatly appreciated. Thank you!
These guys are fast! The service manager is polite and has always been patient to explain what is required to do the job. I have used them on two occasions with great satisfaction. The price is reasonable and the service has not let us down.
Visiting from LA for the weekend, car broke down unexpectedly in San Marcos, on a Saturday at 3 PM! Ralph, and Al were super helpful and accommodating. Very nice and genuine. Stayed past their closing time trying to help with the issue and even gave us a ride back to our Airbnb. Great business. Thanks Ralph!
Great auto shop, honest and reliable. Our family mechanic for over 15 years now.
For 20+ years I have brought my cars here. Good prices and always fair treatment.
I've been taking all of my cars there for smog for years and he has been great and reasonable every time!
I highly recommend Fast Automotive. It is a friendly, honest, and true to its name, fast automotive shop. It's really nice as a woman who is not automotive inclined to know that I can take my car here and not ever feel like I might be getting swindled. Ralph, the owner, always ensures I understand the state of my car and I have never felt pressed into buying anything. Great customer service, great car service.
Best mechanic I have ever used! Ralph is honest and fair. He's even given me advice on how to fix some things myself to save money! Been using him since 2000, and will continue to as long as he is open and I am in San Diego. I cannot recommend him enough.
Second time I've been here. Always friendly and fair. I'm happy I've found a great local shop to rely on.
We've been coming here for years, the whole family. Ralph is great, and I really trust him with my car.
