C & D is an outstanding auto repair shop. I've been a loyal customer of theirs for 15+ years. C & D will never recommend a procedure they don't think is necessary or not in sync with the manufacturer's specifications. Whilst it's true they offer honesty, integrity, thorough workmanship & fair prices===>none of which is to be discounted===>in my mind what makes them so outstanding is that they offer a personal relationship with their customers. This is quite unique in their field of expertise. In my own case, they have on numerous occasions helped me with auto repair problems above and beyond what I have contracted with them to do. They have given me the absolute confidence that if I run into a problem with my car they will be there through thick & think to hep me get through it. And I depend on my automobile for my livelihood. That is why I drive all the way from Encinitas to their shop in La Mesa to have my repairs done. It's more than worth it to me. I could go on and on about what makes their service unique, but I invite you to give me a call at (760) 479-0690 if you are searching for a mechanic. I'd be happy to go into more detail about why I am such an enthusiastic fan of their business. Good luck! Sincerely, Jerry Kavanau

Dara and his staff are knowledgable and fair. After dealing with the dealership while under warranty, I was ready for an honest mechanic that would only perform the needed repairs, give good advise and explain the process completely. These guys really care that the job is well done and that you are satisfied!

My dad was a master mechanic, and he was honest, reliable and brilliant when it came to fixing cars. This is the first time in 30 years I've found someone who equals my dad, and all the other 5 star reviews were very much right. I wish I could give them 10 stars!

I have an older car that failed a recent smog test. I went to C&D after reading all the good reviews and I was not disappointed. Dara went over the car completely and found everything that was wrong with it, and prioritized the list so that I could handle the major problems now and the minor ones later. He delivered FAR more than was expected and his prices are more than fair.
My late father was a master mechanic, and the most honest person I've ever known. Also the most reliable. Unconsciously, I compare everyone else to my dad, and this is the first time I've met someone I felt I could trust as much. The level of care and professionalism at C&D is unsurpassed. I won't go anywhere else now.

I have been a C&D customer for over 20 years and have always been very pleased and satisfied with Dara's honest and high quality service. Always willing to explain his recommendations and always providing options for me to consider. Fair pricing and quality work. Have recommended to many friends.

C & D found and repaired a mistake made by another shop. We were looking for shops open on a Saturdays and we found one that provide options and puts the choice in our hands. Dara gave us a full and complete picture of both vehicles we brought in which is much appreciated. They warranty their work parts and labor. I am happy to have found skilled mechanics who can diagnose and repair a wide spectrum of issues and give me options on how to handle them.

Dara and his son Bobby have ALWAYS been very friendly, professional and they go above and beyond to make sure that the work is at it highest quality. Dara evaluates your vehicle and will give you suggestions. I also like that he takes the initiative to help with the little things....He replaced my wipers after I had paid for service. He recognized that my wipers were shot and replaced them for free. I will not go anywhere else for auto repair.
