Jesse Mendez is like the god of cars. My 93 Accord has been in two accidents. Both times Mr. Jesse did the repairs and both times my car was returned like the day it was made. He does amazing work and his courteous attitude is genuine. Hes fair and honest.I absolutely recommend him if you want the job done right. Thank you Mr.Jesse!

I went there to get an estimate on some painting and body work. Got an estimate which I thought was a little steep. Instead of explaining to me the reason for the costs, he totally blew me off and left me standing there. I went there since I saw a couple good reviews. Obviously reviews were done by them. Beware! Stay Away!!!!

I was so impressed with Jessie Mendez Auto Repair because of Bernie, the work he did, and the price. Honestly, I don't think you can find a better place for auto repair. I brought in my husband's convertible Mustang that had some damage to the front bumper, the hood and the hood latch was broken. I was only going to get a quote, but the price was so good that I left the car and expected to hear from Bernie in a couple of days. He called by the next afternoon, it was done! Bernie and crew went over and above to make sure our car was not only repaired properly, he did some extra work on the bumper and aligned the driver's door. It was only $300 total. Bernie has to be one of the nicest guys in the business and he certainly knows cars. My husband was blown away with the work he did and the price! We needed a great deal, and we got one. It would be worth the drive to go to El Cajon to get a quote, no doubt about it.

I have used Jessie Mendez Auto Body twice, usually talking to Bernie. Both times they did perfect work matching the paint on our candy apple red "clear coat" Mustang GT convertible. The first time I had gotten 3 estimates before them, as we were paying cash, which ranged from $650 to $1000. Jessie Mendez did the work for $450, no problems! Bernie even dropped me off at my home in Lakeside, so that I could bring the car in sooner, no charge. I did INSIST that Bernie take $5 for gas though. Gas was around $4 a gallon back then. The second time was for a Wawanesa Insurance claim estimated for $3000. It was done in a week, perfect work again. Bernie even came to my home in Lakeside to pick me up! I could get my car sooner, rather than have to wait until my wife or neighbor could drop me off before or after work. I will never go anywhere else for my Auto Body work in East County.
