Our family has been with Buck since he had a shop in IB over off Florence. At least 23 years. Finding a good, honest mechanic is like finding a good doctor, dentist or CPA. You never change. Why would you? We have gotten great service, honesty, and fair prices. Buck does not tolerate fools gladly. So if your a fool, do NOT go to Buck. If you want him to do work for free, do NOT go to Buck. Auto mechanics is not a simple science. If it was, we'd all be mechanics! Do not expect your beater car to run like a brand new car because he replaces a radiator thermostat. Seriously people! He can not and will not promise you that your car will never have another problem if he fixes the one thing you came in for today. All our family and friends are sent to him. Many times he has sent me on my way with no charge because it was something so simple to fix. He could have charged me and fairly so. But he is a nice guy. If you treat him with respect, he will do the same.

For years I had been looking for a reliable mechanic and could never find one I felt comfortable with. A friend of mine highly recommended Buck Sanchez of South Bay Datsun. I brought my Isuzu Rodeo in because the accelerator was sticking. Eventhough he was busy with other vehicles, Buck found time to look at my vehicle and within a few minutes had my car running safely on the road again. I was amazed and asked how much did I owe him, and he replied in a friendly reassuring way, "Don't worry about it my friend". Since then, I've brought my Rodeo back for a major tune-up and got my air conditioning working again. I can honestly say that Buck Sanchez and his crew are first class when it comes to quality-customer service and reasonable rates. So when my friends ask if I know any good-trustworthy mechanics, I highly recommend Buck Sanchez and his crew at South Bay Datsun.

South Bay Datsun Auto Repair 1409 Broadway Ste 102 Chula Vista, CA 91911 Note the new address, phone number is the same. This place is great. Buck (the owner) is awsome and very honest. I highly recomend his shop. You will get quality work done for a fair and honest price no matter what car you drive. He will work on all makes and models, newer and older. I have been going to him since my first car in my high school days (1993) and will not go anywhere else.

South Bay Datsun has relocated to 1409 Broadway, Chula Vista. I've gone to Buck Sanchez's South Bay Datsun for years for honest, capable, reliable auto repairs. They repair all makes, not just Datsun.
