I had been going here for years with both my truck and my wife's car. In the last couple of years the service has gone steadily down hill. First it was just little things like grease spots left on the seat and the carpet, then scratches on the side of the car from the air hose. Later I found that they weren't doing the chassis lube (grease fittings on the steering and suspension)only after I crawled under the truck myself and saw the fittings were still dirty. When I called and asked about it they said they didn't have the tool to do grease the fittings. I ask you what kind of ""lube"" shop dosen't have a grease gun? What's worse is that ""Chassis Lube"" was checked off on the reciept that it had been done.
That is just plain Fraud.

I was happy to find that an oil change for a standard vehicle was under $40. I was afraid that being in Del Mar, the prices might be exorbitant. I was even more impressed when Mike pulled out my air filter and checked my fluids and said, everything looks fine. Most places try to really push the cross-sell of air filters, fuel injection cleaning, radiator flush, wiper blades, etc, etc. I was pleasantly surprised that this wasn't the case here. My oil change was done with no complaints.
I added a car wash which was discounted with the oil change. As soon as the oil change is done, they drive it to the car wash next door. This was a nice service, but I was not impressed with the car wash place. It really depends on the dryer person you get. The guy who got my car was slow. 2 cars behind me were finished before mine was. Plus, the guy wasn't very thorough as he missed more than a few spots. I wished they teamed up to dry the cars so that the timing would be more consistent. It's frustrating to see your car is basically clean and ready to go, but have to wait 20 minutes for 1 dude to lackadaisically walk around your car wiping it down.
I'll definitely go again for the oil change. Adding a car wash is a good deal, but I'll skip it if I don't have the time.
