Well pleased., 2/08/2012

I read about Mike and his shop in the Christian Examiner. I was well pleased with how quickly they finished my truck. He explained in detail how differentials can be touchy, and you never know what... your going to find until you get in there. Thank goodness the damage was not as bad as we were anticipating. We will be back, and will send family and friends his way! Thanks Mike and God Bless. Alex Chacon.

best auto guy in town

Mike sat with me for an hour giving me advice on car shopping and what model to choose. Eventually because of his advice and thorough inspection I found the best deal of my life on a Toyota highlander. Mike is really the first truly honest and reliable auto guy I have ever found. Wish he was in point loma where I am now. Thanks mike.

Van repair

Took 2000 Toyota Van in. Toyota wanted around $3000.00 to repair the ABS system. This shop got the right parts the first time and replaced the ABS unit. Car runs like a top. and price was much much better then qouted by Toyota of El Cajon,

Auto service at Allman Family Auto

Allman family auto gives me excellent service. In 08, I purchased a new vehicle and I've never brought it back to the dealer for service. I've only used Allman family auto and will continue to do so. They take care of both my 2008 and 1980 vehicles. I couldn't be more pleased with thier service and honesty.

Honest Price Quotes

The thing I like most about Allman Family Auto is that they give honest, up-front price quotes (no hidden fees or fake costs). I also like the fact that Mike, explains exactly what is wrong, answers all my questions, and gives me options. My car was leaking fluid bad and it would have cost 800.00+ to replace the malfunctioning heater. Mike told me they could bypass it for much, much less - I'd just be w/out a heater. Seeing how my car is an old '93 chevy beater (not worth the expensive heater), and I live in San Diego (don't NEED a heater), I was relieved that I had a cheaper option. He also keeps me up-to-date on what my vehicles need maintenance-wise, but I make the decisions when to have the work done. Well worth the money for peace of mind and quality parts and service!

All its cracked up to be and more!

I have to say, that after reading most of these reviews, what people have to say is exactly correct. Allman Family Auto is great! They provide excellent service and advice at a very reasonable price. Its refreshing to finally find an honest mechanic in San Diego. Thanks again Mike!

They solved all my car problems!

I was stuck in El Cajon and luckily found Allman Family Auto. I ended up having a number of mechanical problems with my car. Not only did they completely repair my engine, they did it sooner than I thought they would and their charge was very reasonable. I tell all my friends about Allman Family Auto!
