    My beloved but old car needed some help. I surveyed around for some online reviews to find a local auto repair shop that people felt they could trust. Elmer Sweetwood and Sons on Sunshine in El Cajon came with lots of good recommendations so I showed up this morning without an appointment. I was delighted with the courtesy, the quality of the work and the comfort of finding a group of people that seem to really know what they are doing. Kudos!

    Not a great service

    You know, the crack in the windshield posting below is just dumb, but the services here is too. Although, they did not beat up my windshield as the other posting makes it seem, they charge an arm and a leg for services there that are just average. Avergage services, mixed with just really horrific prices makes for a poor experience. Don't waste your time!

    They charge you and arm and a leg for parts needed to fix your car. Some markup is expected, but these guys go above and beyond. DEFINITELY NOT recommended.

    My parts, their labor

    We tried to replace the spark plugs ourselves. Not good, 1 broke off in the head. We had it towed to them. They were able to fix it without drilling out the head and installed all our parts for us just for the cost of labor. Thanks

    More bitter than sweet

    I left, as suggested by them, my car overnight for engine repairs. Not only could they not find the problem, but they charged me for the estimate, and a crack suddenly developed in my windshield.
