We Love Working on Mini's

Mini Cooper Enthusiasts
We have had other shop owners ask why we like to service Mini Coopers. When I tell them, they are surprised by my answer: we just really like the owners of the Mini Coopers. We have serviced Volvo and Saab for many years and have enjoyed great relationships with their owners. Mini people are the same, they love their cars and are interested in keeping them well maintained. We like people that name their cars. I have always felt that certain vehicles have personality and Mini is of them.

My first experience with Mini Coopers was 41 years ago when I worked a pit crew for a friend; he raced a Cooper S. It was a tough little car with the heart of a lion. I have liked them ever since. We have spent some time and money learning these vehicles and acquiring the correct tools to service them.

Auto Tech 5 Star Review



We have lived in El Cajon for nearly 25 years and up until a couple of weeks ago never knew that Auto Tech even existed.  For many a year we took our 1993 Volvo 940 wagon to be serviced by “Russ the Romanian” at Import Auto on Main just off of Marshal.  After he had major heart surgery we were basically on our own.  Every time we took our vehicle in for service (same place, new owner & mechanic) it seemed to be a minimum of $1000.  A couple of weeks ago I stopped by Clifton Mercedes on Main and Marshall and asked for a reputable establishment that service Volvo’s.  He highly recommended Auto Tech.  I am so glad that we took his advice.  Our Volvo would not idle; it kept dying unless you manually kept a fast idle.  We took the car to Auto Tech.  Tom, the owner, said he would analyze the problem and get back to us.  By the end of the day he gave us a complete diagnosis.  There were several things wrong and causing the multiple problems.  Within a couple of days we had the vehicle back in our possession.  The car runs great now (over 235,000 miles).  Tom, the Volvo Physician exceeded all of my expectations.  I would like to add that Auto Tech is one of the most honest shops I have ever encountered.  They could have said I needed a tune-up, timing belt, etc.  But they only fixed what needed to be fixed.  I appreciate their honesty, their character and their expertise and  knowledge of their craft.  We will be going to Auto Tech for now on ……
