Today was my second time here at Speedy Auto Repair & Smog. Both times were for emergent issues and both times the team has been very responsive and available (they are aptly named)! Sam and his dad are very knowledgeable and passionate about their work - you can sense the pride in knowledge and workmanship and it shows, too. They do a good job of explaining what needs to be done to fix your car, showing you exactly what they're seeing and explaining what they're thinking. I noticed that my gas was leaking oil yesterday evening in Orange County. Today, back here in San Diego, I called Speedy, and they told me to bring in my car whenever I could. I brought my car in around 1:30 and within 15 minutes they had identified the source of the oil leak and also pinpointed another leak (coolant leak under the hood, which they showed to me). It took another hour and some change and they had changed my oil, replaced the washer on one of the openings on the oil pan and replaced a radiator hose. The original estimate was about $130, and the total cost ended up being $170. I appreciate that these guys show you the problem as they see it and then explain exactly what they're going to do. And I'm very grateful that they're able to be available on such short notice. I would recommend them and after two good experiences, they are my mechanic of choice. 4 stars out of 5 because I don't know enough about cars to give an unreserved 5.
