I crashed my Porsche Cayanne over 2 months ago. I took it to another shop that a friend recommended but had the work experience of my life. They gave me the run-around for a month straight only to find my car hadn't been touched. I took the car straight to Amato's and was taken care of very quickly and I left feeling really confident. I can't wait to get my car back and i'm happy to say i finally cant sleep knowing it's in good hands. 4 stars.

My wife backed into my car one night and unfortunately smashed up both of them pretty good. I've had my M5 for years and I JUST bought my wifes 335i. Now I had 2 cars that needed work. I'm not the kind of guy that likes to drive around in a smashed up car so mine went in first. Amatos was able to get the car back to me in just a few days and the wifes car is already at the shop! Can't wait to see the results.
Two weeks ago I was driving down the 5 late at night, it was foggy and i could barely see. I ran over some sort of object 10 minutes before making it home. When i got home i discoverd the reason for the unpleasent noise my BMW was making. Turns out my entire bumper was caved in. I took the car too Amatos as I have dealt with them in the past. I was taken care of right away and the car looks better than before. Thank you Amato's!
I have to say, I love amatos! I took my Mercedes C class in after i had someone rear-end me in La Jolla. I was dreading the entire experience but was pleasently surprised at how easy Amatos made the process! The car looks great and the finished it even faster than they quoted. Would definately recommend Amato's.
I recently got into a pretty bad accident in my brand new Camry. I was devastated and was definitely not looking forward to the process of dealing with insurance and body shops that was ahead of me. My friend recommended Amato's Auto Body to me because her car was recently there and she was completely satisfied with the service she received. I called my insurance and they told me to take my car to several different places. I went ahead and called Amato's anyways, and they informed me that insurance companies try to steer you in their own direction to benefit themselves, but by law, people can take their cars wherever they want to. I brought my car in there for an estimate, and a few days later, I dropped off my car. Throughout the entire time, they called me to let me know the status on how far along it was. I was so pleased with the fact that I was in the loop the entire time. When I got my car back, it looked brand new again! I was especially excited to see that they matched the color perfectly! Nobody would ever be able to tell that I previously crashed my car. Paul Amato cares a lot about his customers & has created a body shop that definitely does the best work in San Diego, not to mention they even gave me a gift when I picked up my car :) I would recommend this shop to anyone who wants to make the best out of a situation that is not so great.

Amatos is absolutely above the rest. The staff was extremely helpfull with the insurance company and treated me like a VIP the whole time. They even had Enterprise come out and bring my rental to me there as well as drop it off. The work was done on time and the quality of their work was top notch. I deffinitely recommend them to anyone.

The service here is great! The staff is incredibly helpful and arranged for my insurance adjuster to meet me there so I could get a quote right then and there. The quality of work was superb and they even got my car done early. They only take newer foreign make cars, so be sure to give them a call to make sure they will be able to do the work for you. (This is so they can get the parts quicker and get you your car sooner) Love them!
