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.

I have had both my cars serviced at this place. The workers are honest and will offer you a decent price. The owner (Mac) is very humble, I have worked with him several times. Given my busy schedule he was flexible and more than willing to work with me. I have no problem leaving my car with Oceanside Automotive, they are very trustworthy. Toni B: The only reason why there would be any type of delay or wait is because they are very loyal and committed to their customers.

I made an appointment & took my car in today for an oil change & tire rotation. Luis at the front counter was so professional, knowledgeable & nice. He took the time to explain things to me & so nice I feel like I made a new friend! Excellent service. I will definitely be bringing in our truck for service, also. Highly recommend this place.

I came here after finding this place on Yelp and reading the reviews. I am very satisfied with the quality of service and treatment I received. Mac treated me like a person, not a customer. We chit chatted for a bit while one of his technicians worked on my car. I didn't feel taken advantage of nor did I feel he was trying to upsale me on any other services. I will definitely come back for any other services my car may need. I've already referred his shop to some close friends.

I am using my wife's Yelp account because I don't get online to rate businesses very often at all, but after reading the 10 reviews that Oceanside Automotive (OA) received, I had to write my own. 2-Stars from Sunny S. because you called around and other shops had other advice to try and lure you over to them, c'mon. 3-Stars from Cheeky R. for having to return because of minor mistakes, understandable. 1-Star from Toni-B because you walked into a busy auto shop and expected to be served right there and then...you should remove your review. Any reliable and trustworthy shop is usually always busy and MOST people know before bringing their car in they should call first. 1-Star from Jamie M...your story is very hard to believe. I have been taking my two Civics here for about three years now and Mac (owner) has done nothing but great quality work to both my cars. I have had brake jobs, A/C fixes, basic issues like my alarm and automatic windows, routine maintenance including oil changes and transmission/coolant flushes, and most recently an expensive transmission/clutch and radiator job. Both cars are driving perfectly as of now and it should definitely be expected. OA is not the cheapest place to get your car fixed, but Mac has been in the business for 35 years and is a very trustworthy business owner who's first priority is to serve his customers, not make a profit. I personally trust his judgment and if you are looking for an auto repair shop you can trust to fix your car the right way instead of quoting you the cheapest estimate around, OA is the place. Mac and his crew are great, bottom line.

This place is awesome. I came into Firestone on base in Camp Pendleton to fix a possible brake problem. After the inspection which took 4 hours, they contacted me and suggested that I needed a full brake job, new rotors, flush, etc. Total estimate: $650!!! Since I didn't have time to stick around all day, I decided to hold off and get a second opinion from Oceanside Automotive, which is literally a 2 minute walk from my house. Dropped it off at 10am and was contacted within an hour. Turns out that I did not need a full break job and that the only thing I needed was to replace the rear shock (which I had previously known). Only tying needed to be done as far as the brakes was to resurface the rotors! Total estimate: $350! I highly recommend this place to anyone needing auto repair IR maintenance. The staff were professional and best of all, HONEST!!! Its tough to find places like these nowadays. I've been a loyal Firestone customer for years, and although at times I felt that I was being ripped off, I stuck around just for the sake of the company name. After this experience, I don't think ill ever take my vehicles anywhere else! Thank you Oceanside Automotive! You just gained a very loyal customer! Bravo Zulu!

I recently got an oil change here. I was satisfied with the service although there was a bit of a wait (~1 hour). It was Saturday morning, so that was to be expected though. I was satisfied with the staff, service and price for my oil change and will most likely be back since its right near my house.

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.
