    Very happy with the honest service here. The response was also very fast. I had a check engine light on & Ace Auto Repair was able to check what was wrong with it in 20min! The verdict was also very honest. Not like most auto repair services where they try to nickel & dime you. Would definitely come back.

    Finding good mechanics is an insanely difficult task in my experience,

    but I can definitely say that I've found a good one here.

    I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Ace Auto Repair to anyone who needs Auto repairs.

    Honest and amazing work!

    When the driver seat of my Jeep broke, Ace Auto Repair was recommended to me as one of the few auto shops who does welding. I had an appointment the day after. I called and the seat was repaired for the right price asI waited. Glad and safe on the road again. They even vaccumed and cleaned!

  • *****

    I can't imagine an auto repair place getting better than this. Milton at the front desk takes care of you in a way that makes you feel like family. And the craftmanship of the repair technichans is unsurpassable!

  • *****

    I felt like the people I worked with at the Ace Auto Repair were really concerned about my needs. They went above and beyond all of my expectations.

  • *****

    The customer service was great. Any problem I had, they took care of.

  • *****

    I always take my car to Ace for pretty much all of my repairs. Excellent work and very informative on what was fixed on the vehicle. He fixed up the rear shocks on my Volvo and did a great job for a fantastic price. I can consistently rely on him to fix my cars.

  • *****

    I would highly recommend Ace Auto Repair to anyone, because it is the best place to go.

  • *****

    We have brought a few cars of the family to Ace Auto Repair for a while now and every time an excellent job was performed. From something as simple as a oil change to major engine/transmission issues the owner made sure I was aware of every little detail. Very convenient hours, good price and great communication! I would highly recommend this place to anyone!!!

    I was impressed with Ace Auto Repair. I really appreciated everything they did.

  • *****

    I always bring my cars to ACE auto repair to change oil or fix anything was broken. They will give me back the defective parts, of course I will not take it back. But at least I know how does it break. Even a brake pad. I know why it so noise. They do give me 90 days of guarantee.

    Went in to buy a Prius. Met Joshua, who was super friendly and knowledgeable. He made the process very easy and straightforward for someone buying their first car. He helped me find exactly what I was looking for and get all of my paperwork squared away. Highly recommend! Ask for Joshua when you stop in!

    I've been servicing my 2003 Land Rover Discovery with Zabi for the last 3 years and am extremely satisfied. While the dealers gave me quotes that made me pale, were vague about their diagnostics and had to schedule the work, Zabi would take no longer then 3 minutes to diagnose the fault, give a fair and firm quote and treated me with utmost urgency. The quality of his work and his customer service make me come back to him every time I need assistance with my car. I recommend his services to everybody that needs prompt, quality service for their car and decent charges for his work. Thank you Zabi!

  • *****

    Zabi and his team are honest,reliable and fast.
    Great prices and excellent workmanship.
    I recommend 100% - you wont be disappointed!

  • *****

    I been going to Ace Auto Repair for almost 10 years. I have three Rovers and Zabi takes care of all them. He is honest, fair and very knowledge about Land Rovers. Zabi has earned my business and I hope you give him a try.

  • *****

    I have taken my cars and my kids cars to Zabi for years and got to know him well. He does excellent work and then some. Also, he charges fair as compared to anybody. I recently went back for some major repair work and he worked with me and fixed every thing (I had many issues with my truck) in a very expeditious way and I got my car back sooner than I thought. Price was unbelievable. I'm very happy and wanted to share the experience with everyone.

    I am horrible at car maintenance. I usually let my boyfriend handle that but he's been slacking. I was taking a trip to Disneyland & remembered I hadn't had an oil change since last June!!! (told you I was horrible) I looked to Yelp for somewhere near work, within walking distance, so I could drop it off & not lose any time. I was really impressed with Ace's reviews. Decided to just come in & see. There is a whole row of auto repair shops around Ace, but I don't think any of them could have done a better job or given better service. Zabi is the best! Not only did he get the job done in a timely manner, he didn't give me a list of things I "had" to fix before my trip like the last place I went or scold me for not getting an oil change sooner (btw, I still haven't fixed those things & I've made that trip several times, my car still runs fine). Not to mention, he charged less than any other shop I've been to! Seriously feel like I've found "The One", in auto repair shops.

    It's hard to find a good mechanic that is trustworthy. But look no further, Zabi is your guy! I needed some work done on my car and Zabi was not only honest in letting me know what I needed and didn't need, but his prices were tough to beat. I'm so glad that I have found my go-to mechanic in San Diego!

  • *****

    This place is my dealer alternative. zabie always gives me my options and time to think about it. When I decide and come in he honors his word and does the job the way we tacked about and price quote with a minimum of fuss. I've known them for years and I would go back. Keep up the good work.

  • *****

    If you are looking for an honest and great mechanic, stop looking. Zabi and his guys are the best.

  • *****

    Ace was recommended to me by a friend. On arrival, I was greeted kindly, and proceeded to explain my issue(s). Zabbi explained everything that needed to be done and at a reasonable price too. Car was returned on time. Would definitely recommend.

  • *****

    I have brought my cars into Ace several times and I also refereed few friend to them and they have done an excellent job. They know what they are doing and very trustworthy. If I have any car issues I will only take it to Ace.

  • *****

    I have an older Honda that needed several different repairs and I had done my research to know approximately how much it should cost. My in-laws recommended Ace Auto Repair since I was new to San Diego and didn't want to take my car to a random place. After getting an estimate from Zabi I felt comfortable that he would be the right man for the job. He is fair and knowledgeable...something that I have found to be rare amongst other mechanics. He is now my mechanic for all three of my cars and I recommend him to my friends.

  • *****

    Very good service and value. I had my exhaust repaired. He did a great job and was very strait forward about what he was doing and how he was charging. Took me out in the shop to explain the problems and get consent before doing anything beyond what I asked. When things did't go as expected, he spent extra time to make it right and didn't try to charge me extra for it. For the amount of work he had to put into it, I felt the price was very reasonable.

  • *****

    Zabi is a great guy and a great mechanic.
    I will trust him with my life.
    He is an honest and has tuns of knowledge in cars.
    he could tell with just hearing the car what the problem was.
    G0d bless him.

  • *****

    My car needed power steering help today, I shopped around. When I got to Ace, I was pleased to hear his honest opinion and respect shown to me with good advice. The repair was done quickly and looks like my problem is solved. The price mAde sense too.

  • *****

    Hard to find an honest mechanic. This guy put up with all my bs and didn't get frustrated with me once (despite numerous unnecessary visits...).

  • *****

    After consulting with multiple Volvo mechanics I walked into ACE looking for a solution. Previous shops only wanted to replace parts and not do a specific labor. I explained the problem to Zabi, he made sure we were both on the same page. Two hours later my car was ready and running as I needed. I saved hundreds of dollars and avoided replacing parts. I was so satisfied I brought my wife's car that same afternoon for an alignment. ACE was very honest and thorough. I recommend this shop looking for a great shop and mechanic that will listen to your needs.

    Zabi (the owner of ACE) is fantastic! I normally (and always have) done most if not all my own repairs to my vehicles. Only A/C and transmission work are the two areas where I depend on shops, simply because I don't have the special tools/equipment to work on these. That is, until I brought my Corvette in for a new A/C compressor... After checking with the dealer and one other shop, I read some reviews here on Yelp and decided to bring it over to see what kind of a price I would get - not just the "Oh, it's a Corvette, so it's going to be expensive" kind of answer.

    ACE/Zabi quoted a price that was less than HALF the dealer price, so I thought I'd give them a try. Not only did he have it done in the time frame quoted, he actually called and told me that he had to pull the water pump (which I knew beforehand as that's the only way to get the compressor out) and wanted to know if I wanted to replace it at the same time. Which was amazing as I was GOING to tell him that anyhow, but had forgot. He also mentioned that one of the belt tensioners was worn causing some squeaking - and yep, I was going to change that out when I had a chance, but he said he would address that as well, along with the serpentine belt. Which kind of SOUNDS like he was bumping up the bill intentionally, but not at all - we both knew that was the right thing to do and I would have done all of them myself anyhow.

    The amazing thing was that when I went to pick the car up, the price for the water pump, belt tensioner and the belt itself were priced as if I went into the local AutoZone/O'Reillys and purchased them myself! No "dealer markup" on the parts at all. I couldn't believe it as I've had some negative experiences in the past with shops who may quote an initially fair price, but then nickle and dime every little extra... Not so here.

    So now? Just dropped off my older car that needs new fuel injectors and a few other minor things. Yes, I could do that myself, but my time is valuable too and he's got a REAL shop to do this kind of work in - and can do it cheaper/faster than I could do it myself! I have other things to do right now - my real job.

    Kind of sounds like I am a "shill" for this company, but not at all. Just great to find a truly honest individual who does fantastic work at a very fair price. This is now the fourth time using him - he installed a new high-performance exhaust system on my Corvette and replaced some ticking lifters in my old Mitsubishi - and now the six new fuel injectors on the same car (it's a 1989 with 160k plus thousand miles on it, but is a fantastic vehicle - and for what little I put into it, it's worth keeping it on the road!). Thanks again Zabi!

    I have never met a nicer, more honest mechanic! Zabi (the owner) is very personable and knowledgeable. I've had my car in his shop several times over the last 2-3 years and every time, he's reliable and honest. Most recently, he diagnosed an oil leak that other mechanics told me would be a huge process just to find the source. I also appreciate that he doesn't pressure me into anything. He consults with me and gives advice, but doesn't tell me anything is necessary unless it actually is. Plus, he works quickly and I'm always happy with the value for the price. He does things right the first time, which I am so grateful for. I live 30-40 mins from Ace, but I refuse to go to another mechanic; he's the best!

  • *****

    Zabi at Ace auto repair is my go to mechanic in miramar road. He has been working on my different cars for last 10 years; and, I always trust him. He knows about different cars all around. And, he does different things which is very helpful. I only go to him even after he relocated to Carrol road. Go there and you wont regret his service or opinion.

    Best service ever!
    This guy not only gave me a really good price (I called at least 5 different shops) for changing my catalytic converter but also took the time and drove my car around, and checked it very well. He did find a problem with one of my tire that was giving me a weird noise, but did not forced me to replace it right the way (like others do), since it is still good for about a year.
    Really honest, works quick, great price!
    Best I found in the area!
    I will definately come back!!

    Love it. The service was honest, skillful, and super fast. Got my resonators removed, two of them, in an hour. The shop is family owned so no accountability problems there. Trusted.

  • *****

    Totally happy with my muffler repair and not far from work too. An added bonus. Excellent pricing and customer service. He is setting goals for me to work on additional repairs needed for my car and his quote "Do not need to fix something if it not broken." I felt like he wants to take of my car and me knowing I a girl on a budget. He is my guide and consultant in setting goals on repairs needed but not urgent. WOW, I felt him genuine and a professional in wanting to taking care of our cars and our pocketbooks. Highly recommend ACE Auto!!!

    An Honest price and excellent workmanship. If you're looking for a repair shop that puts quality work over a nice customer lounge and free coffee then this is the place for you. A very good repair experience.
