Amatos Auto Body is the best Collision Repair Facility in San Diego hands down. Being in the performance car business for 8+ years, I have seen my fair share of good and bad work over the years. And it is extremely difficult to find a trustworthy auto body repair facility. I had an unfortunate at fault accident where my Mitsubishi Evolution 9 SE hit a chain link fence. Every panel on my entire car was deeply scratched and unfortunately needed to be repainted. After making a claim with my insurance provider, I called Amatos Auto Body and asked if I could have my car sent over.Once my Insurance provider assessed the damage of my car, I was put into the very welcoming hands of the Amatos staff. There facility is top notch, and made me feel good about leaving my car with them. Since this was the first accident that I had ever been in, I was unsure of how this entire process worked. Alicia was more than helpful and laid out the entire process. I left Amatos that day with complete confidence in their operation. Amatos updated me on my car weekly with the arrival of parts ordering and progress status. Within a very short amount of time, I received the phone call saying "Your car is good as new, and ready for pickup!". After that, I rushed over to the shop, and my jaw dropped when I saw my car. It looked even better than it did when it came off of the showroom floor. They did an A+++ job from start to finish, and I couldn't be happier. Their customer service, hospitality, professionalism, and quality of work is top notch. They are the best Auto Body Shop in San Diego hands down, and I would recommend them to anybody.There is a reason they are Factory Certified by Aston Martin, Audi, Bentley, BMW, Infiniti, Jaguar, Land Rover, Mercedes, Porsche, Tesla and Volkswagen.

I took my 1962 VW bug there since I got rear ended by a pizza delivery guy and had heard good things about this place, Its a little out of the way for me since I live near La Jolla but I really care about this car so the drive was the least of my concerns. Once I got there I pulled right up and was greeted by two of their employees which were very friendly since the start, they were very sympathetic about my situation and made me feel like they cared about this car as if it was their own.. Once we discussed the accident they overlooked the car they reasured me it was in goods hands, I believed them. This car is my baby and sometimes worry about who I leave it with when it comes to repairs, specially paintwork. Well I got my car back within a few weeks and was explained every process the car went through while it was repaired giving me a better understading and appreciation for what these guys go through when restoring a car to its original state. If you care about your car and the quiality of work take it here. They are honest and very well priced, its no wonder to me that they have a full lot ranging from high end cars, to your honda civics, even boats which I was shocked to see. Im relieved to know I dont have to look for another body shop in the future. I give them 5 stars!
We took in our son's 20 year-old Honda Accord for the basic, low-cost paint job. It was looking pretty sad and my husband had made it worse by trying to sand out some bad areas and repaint with matching touch up spray paint (bad idea). We were absolutely stunned by the results. The car is beautiful. My son said he didn't even recognize it when he picked it up--it was so nice! He could not believe it was the same car. He goes outside, 2 weeks later, and just looks at it--he is finally inspired to take better care of it since it looks so nice now. Seriously, we were dubious based on some of the less-then-stellar reviews here on Yelp, but we took a chance as Maaco had the best deal out there and for a 20-year old beater, we didn't want to spend a lot. They had it done in 4 business days, as promised. It looks brand new. Even my husband, who is very finicky about these things, was very pleased with the result. I have no problem recommending this center to anyone. We are very, very happy with the paint job, the service and employees at Maaco on Kearny Villa Road. You guys rock!
Love these guys! Unfortunately they weren't able to help me this time because the car had its last straw and was totalled. I have lived in the same area for 16 years, 4 drivers in the household who all travel the 15, 52, 163 and 5/805... we have had our share of accidents, most handled by J&M whom I have always been pleased with. I can't say the same about a couple of the other nearby shops that we have also dealt with, which is why the car went to J&M this time. They are like family, personable and responsive, and my experience has been they do what they say, when they say. ... sadly its good bye to this Nissan Sentra and hopefully I won't be taking another car to J&M, but if another accident happens around here, they are my only choice.
Absolute fantastic place! Was sent here by another auto shop that was booked up and Im more than happy they sent me here! You can track the progress of repairs online, plus they text you with updates and personally call you to let you know the progress of repairs at each step. They may be functioning like a highend shop in the 21st century but it still feels like a local mom-n-pop shop and they treat you like you're next of kin. Estimated my truck repair time at 2 weeks from being rear-ended, 5 days later they called to say it was done in half the time, and that was with rear frame damage and all new paint. My Silverado is better than it was before the accident. Thank you Greg and J&M for excellent service!
I went in to get an estimate for damages I was going to take care of myself. John, the owner immediately greeted me. I showed him my car. He took it to the back and told me he'd be right back. When he brought my car back he'd taken all of the paint transfer off and there was just a minor scratch on it. I offered to pay him and he refused with open arms. He assured me that this was the place to take your car if you wanted the work to be done right. I was so impressed and grateful for his help and willingness to take care of me at no cost even after I insisted. Thank you, John, you were warm, friendly, and professional! P Glenn
Just got my 99 Tacoma painted here last week. WOW! looks like a brand new truck! Ray was meticulous about the details. The paint looks perfect. But beyond that, the entire exterior of the truck was detailed: Chrome polished, all black surfaces Armor all'd, etc. I do my homework. Ray beat the best quote I had gotten elsewhere by hundreds of dollars. If you want a great paint job at an excellent price, this is the place to go. I have two buddies that are going to go there since they've seen my truck!
I crashed my Porsche Cayanne over 2 months ago. I took it to another shop that a friend recommended but had the work experience of my life. They gave me the run-around for a month straight only to find my car hadn’t been touched. I took the car straight to Amato’s and was taken care of very quickly and I left feeling really confident. I can’t wait to get my car back and i’m happy to say i finally cant sleep knowing it’s in good hands. 4 stars.
Sam took care of my car fore decades. He knew my car better than I did. He was honest and his prices were the best I could find.When he began doing auto body work. He took care of my car and a friend's car at a very reasonable rate. We were all very pleased with the repairs. I would not take my car to anyone else as long as he is around (which I hope will be for a very, very long time).
This has been one of my best experiences with my van. I was concerned after seen 2 bad reviews and took my car there anyways. The owner was more than professional and exceed my expectations. I told him I wanted original parts in my car; he took care of my paper work for my insurance. I would recommend this shop to anyone. I was happy with the work done in my car. Mrs.San Roman
