We recently relocated to Oceanside and needed smog tests for our 2 vehicles. Mac was extremely friendly, and the service was fast and affordable. I have yet to return for any other services but will give them a try. Can't believe toni b. here gave this shop 1 star without actually having a service provided, which unfairly drags down their rating (Yelp should filter out this review). I respect them for being honest and giving priority to the customers that had already dropped off their cars for service...I wouldn't want them delaying my repairs for an extra day just to do a smog test for someone arriving at 4pm without an appointment.

Always professional, and ready to provide accurate information with regards to the issues that my vehicle has.

WE HAVE BEEN TAKING OUR CARS TO O'SIDE AUTO. FOR THE PAST FEW YEARS AND HAVE RECEIVED EXCELLENT SERVICE EVERY TIME. THEY ALWAYS GIVE AN ESTIMATE AND DELIVER THE CAR IN A TIMELY MANNER.

I hate looking for a new mechanic, as I moved I had to. Bang on the owner was very informative and helpful. Service was efficient and they did more than they had to. Owner matched a competitors coupon for service. Staff was very attentive and made me feel like I hit the jackpot finding them. Sending recomendations out to all my neighbors. Being a chick, most places try to "invent" services that need to be done. Especially as I drive a '95 pathfinder. They checked all and reported everything was excellent.

I needed a smog certificate and on an early Saturday morning went to my regular guy who owns a small single-employee test shop. I've never had a problem with him before and he's very honest, however for some strange reason he was closed that day. I saw an ad in the Pennysaver for Oceanside Automotive with a coupon for a 28:95 smog check. I historically have had horrible luck hiring anybody that advertises in the Pennysaver, so I was skeptical. Since my regular place was closed and the price was right I gave it a chance, mainly because I knew the condition of the car and that it should pass. The guy was friendy, had a nice shop, and seemed honest. Nevertheless, I was just waiting for them to invent some reason for the car not to pass so they could charge me to "fix it". Shops can do a lot of things to keep a car from passing; some outright dishonest, and others just due to lack of effort, such as warming-up the engine first. Later-on, as I was impatiently waiting for the sure to be coming bad news, to my pleasant surprize, the owner called me to the counter and said that I just passed one of the most difficult tests of my life. Everything said, it all went well and was a good, if not great experience. I'm still skeptical, because it's the Pennysaver and an auto-service buisiness; but until I find out differently would have to give these guys at least a 4 star rating.
