I just moved to Oceanside and needed an oil change after a long drive. I looked at the reviews on Yelp for a mechanic shop and really liked the reviews for Oceanside Automotive. I called and spoke with Mac about an oil change and he quoted me a price which I thought was fair. I was able to get my truck in the shop the next morning and was able to get an oil change and tire rotation in a little over an hour. They even fixed my squeaking clutch which had been annoying me for quite some time, for no extra charge! While I waited Mac and I had a friendly conversation about living here and it was nice to talk with a local for a bit as I'm new to the area. I would definitely recommend this shop!

This place is great. The owner Mac, is honest and the work is done quickly and cleanly. The prices are reasonable and I trust that the work is done right and my best interests are always taken into consideration. For example, he found a leak and called the dealership to find out if my car was still under factory warranty. He told me where to take it and who to ask for.

Nice guys, do good work, pretty pricey but you get what you play for, did good work on my car quick with new ordered parts but once again a expensive place.

Love this place and the people who work there. Mac is very thorough at explaining what is needed and there's no pressure to have it all done, just suggesting things that will be coming up for servicing. I brought my truck there for an oil change and mentioned a blinker problem I was having (for over 3 years the bulbs just kept going but it wasn't the bulb but rather something with the socket). When I came to pick up the truck from the LOF the blinker socket was fixed at no charge. Been going here since we moved to Oceanside last December and will continue to take my truck here for whatever repairs are needed.

First off, Mac and his crew are awesome people. Second, they do amazing work. Third, they do quality work for a fair price. With those things out of the way I should say that Mac is extremely knowledgeable about cars, trucks and anything else he repairs. I have had all my vehicles work on at his shop, from brakes, smog, ignition work and he has nailed the problem the first time, every time. His pricing estimates are usually in point, unless he finds another issue but he calls you and makes you aware of said issue before just charging you. If you want quick, quality, professional work, then this is the place to go.

Mac is the man. He gets the job done right and I can count on it. Prices are pretty decent. Especially on bigger builds he can work with you on price. I drive a 99 jeep wrangled TJ. When I'm too busy and can't work on it myself or it's outside my skill level he's the man I go to. I've gone to other places but the product is so much more reliable by going to Mac. He's done everything for me from ordering new wheels and tires to dropping a whole new motor in it . Trust worthy group of guys he's got working there.

My AC went out in my car about 6-8 months ago, and I delayed getting it fixed because I was worried about the astronomical costs I was sure I would acquire to fix it. I finally caved in one day and decided to get an estimate at Oceanside Automotive since they are so close to my home. From the moment I walked in I felt like I was being treated like family, not only with fairness but with respect as well. Their customer service is outstanding! I instantly felt comfortable and I knew they would not rip me off, like I have been SO many other times at different auto shops. Within a few hours they fixed my AC as well as a headlight issue I was having, all for a very fair price. From now on I will only let Mac and the guys at oceanside automotive touch my car, I wouldn't trust anyone else!

Unlike most other car centers, Mac and his staff treat you well. They give personal attention to what you need and are honest and dependable. You are not just someone they can bill when they are done working on your car. They treat you like family (the good kind) so I will definitely keep coming back if I need anything done.

I've taken my car here for regular maintenance and for broken stuff. The work has always been great and reasonably priced. When I take my car here, I have always gotten the whole, straight story and as many available options on diagnosis and repair as there are. Mac is always really careful about great customer service, even in potentially difficult situations. I take my car here for everything and would recommend it to anyone.

Just moved to California two weeks ago. Took my car here to get serviced from the cross country trip we just made. Walked in and the workers immediately struck up conversation. They were helpful in all way. Had to wait about an hour for the car but it was okay. Came back, to my car oil changed...fluids checked...and tires rotated without even asking me. Price was fantastic. Will not be taking my cars anywhere else around here! Great place.
