You Don't Have to Take Our Word for It!

Here's what some of our satisfied customers have to say about D & J Auto Doctors:

The ONLY place I take my car to get fixed. Not only are they expert mechanics, but they are really cool people with awesome customer service. They are honest which is hard to find in a mechanic shop now days. Thank you Darren for always taking care of my Prius!


Excellent customer service. Every person who helped me was kind and, most importantly, informative. They don't just tell you what to pay for at the end. They explained why every measure was taken and why they left some measures out (e.g. Some parts didn't need replacing) which I found as a sign of integrity. I will bring my truck back here for everything I need.


We have been to so many mechanics all over North County. Encinitas, Carlsbad, San Marcos, Vista, etc. I am very mechanically inclined and only use a shop when I don't want to waste a weekend working on my cars, or don't feel like getting dirty. If you aren't getting ripped off, you're getting over-charged is what I have found. D and J was very honest, direct, had the opportunity to make more of the job than it was, but only did what was honestly needed. We loved their communication and flexibility for drop off and pick up. We are excited to know them and for they being their for our next need.


After two years at Pendleton, I've taken my truck to Darren for every normal and extraordinary service requirement, from oil change and tire rotation to brake checks and A/C fixes. He and his team are quick, transparent, reliable, and they speak in terms that are easy to understand. I recommend this shop for anyone who's new to the area and is looking for a reliable auto service center that won't rip you off and will give you quality customer service and auto service every time you visit.


We've been using D&J since they opened. We trust them to take good care of our car's and RV. Wouldn't go anywhere else.


I started taking our vehicles to D & J Auto Doctors for a few years now, and I can without a doubt say they are 100% trustworthy and professional. They take the time to explain everything, and never overcharge. I definitely recommend them!


I found this place near where I work. They had an easy website form to fill out my request. The owners called me back within a couple of hours. They fixed all my car issues the next day. They are very knowledgeable about cars. They even broke it down in laymen's terms to me! I'm super happy with my new ac in my car. I recommended this auto shop to anyone!


Darren and Denise are wonderful human beings. They're honest , reliable, professional, and i couldn't be more relieved and appreciative for all that they do. Every time I take my car in Darren takes really good care of me. He addresses the issues in need and doesn't try to up sell. His knowledge and skills is second to none in my opinion. My car comes back to me 100% without having to return for the same problem twice. On top of that Darren explains why your problem exist and what those parts do for one another. He educates you on your car instead of just telling you "this is what you need" like the majority of mechanics out there. Darren is a true automotive technician and I'm forever grateful.


I had an excellent visit today. I went in thinking I needed brakes but I only needed a cleaning and lube today. Darren explained the issue in great detail and gave me great advise On what to Look for if your breaks are bad. I also got tire advise as well which is greatly appreciated. I would highly recommend this business to all that need mechanic work done. They do professional work and are very kind and friendly. I am very pleased with my visit.


Very knowledgeable and used quality parts.


Awesome shop, excellent mechanic and good people in general, honest about the problems and gets them solved in a timely manner. 100% recommend.


I have been using their services for 10+ years. They have very good Mechanics with a lot of experience. They are an honest business and have very reasonable prices. I would highly recommend them to anyone needing their vehicle repaired!


Great place to get work done to your vehicle, the staff actually cared about getting the work done to the best of their ability and take the time to explain what work they did and then some. Only issue I had was that the restroom light didn't work... still, 5 STARS!
