My family has been going Auto Tech for over 25 or so years.  We have always felt that Tom was  the most fair and straight-forward business man.  He and John are on top of the problems that our cars have had no matter what the make.

Great service for years now! Wouldn’t go anywhere else! Tom & John always discuss the issue with me and perform the service efficiently. Always stand behind their work. That’s why I drive from Clairemont to El Cajon to Auto Tech!!! Thank You for your excellent service!

Donna King

Business Owner

When I take my car to Auto Tech I’m greeted by the staff and feel very welcome. I respect their opinion and they’ll tell me point blank what is the highest priority to be serviced. This is huge- I trust Tom and his staff. I’ll continue going to Auto Tech when a problem arises and I highly recommend them to others.
