John's Automotive Care




They work fast but technicians can be careless and miss details. Had a brake light falling off the back of the vehicle. Overpriced and refuse to work with non-oem parts.


John’s auto is the best! We take all three of our vehicles to get serviced here. We have had trouble with our Honda and they finally found out what the issue was. All of their work is covered by warranty and they have honored it too. They have gained our trust and we are so thankful!


As soon as my parts showed up, John’s Automotive Care staff were quick to get the parts in, working and tested to make sure everything ran properly. The job was done fast and efficiently. They were upfront and honest with prices and didn’t try to push any extra maintenance on me. The staff were very friendly, courteous and professional. I am a completely satisfied customer. I definitely will return in the future for any truck issues that may occur.


Reasonable prices, accurate diagnostics, cars are ready when described - what more can you ask for in an independent service facility.


I'm so happy John's Automotive is open for business during this trying time as they always do great work giving me one less worry. The lobby isn't as much fun right now but you feel very safe when doing business and the same friendly employees make it pleasant and easy. For many years I've recommended John's to everyone I know and I have only heard thank you's for sending me to the best.


Everyone at John's Automotive is very responsive and helpful. They are timely in completing work.


Great service. Kept me informed at each step! I LOVE the written inspection reports!


Since having a problem with my long time auto shop, I decided to try John's Automotive and have been pleasantly surprised. They have serviced my 2001 Pontiac Montana and a 1985 Volvo with exceptional, professional results. In addition, I started taking my 1972 Firebird to John's Automotive in La Mesa on the recommendation of my local John's Automotive. They know their vintage cars exceptionally well. I have had nothing but problems with my Firebird since doing a major overhaul 3 years ago with my previous shop, to the point where I was hesitant to drive it. A few days with John's automotive, and all the nagging problems were fixed and it's now a joy to drive! Thanks, John's Automotive!


James took care of my vehicle from start to finish. It was my first time at Johns, and I chose this location because of all of the positive reviews and because of the close proximity to my work. Made an appointment online and brought my car in for just a basic oil change and tune-up. The mechanics found an issue that needed to be taken care of, the prompt notification was wonderful. I will definitely be back for all my car needs! Thank you for the great customer service, my car is running great, much better than before!

Theresa, thank you for the kind review! We're so glad you stopped in and chose us based on our strong social media presence and positive reviews reflecting on the quality of our work. We appreciate your feedback and look forward to working with you again!
