The associates at John's were super nice. I called the store a few hours before I went in for a smog and talked to a man named Chris answered and helped me out with all my questions. He said they usually don't do walk ins, but were nice enough to let me come in with out an appointment. I went in the same day and Chris was there to help me out with my transaction and getting my smog done. I only waited about 20 minutes, and that was because there was another car getting their smog done. The staff was nice and even offered me fruit, water, and candy. I look forward to coming here again instead of the smog place that's near my house.

I stopped in near their closing time on a Monday afternoon. They happily made time to repair a flat tire for me. The shop seemed really friendly and clean. Surprisingly, when the tire repair was finished they wouldn't accept any cash. That was a nice surprise, very cool auto repair shop!

Johns Automotive Care has done services on a couple of my vehicles. From oil changes, alignments, diagnosing oil leaks,trying to figure out "mystery" noises etc. John, Brian, Chris and Brenda's service is amazing, Very trustworthy and competitive. For example I kept talking to Brian about my 66 Lincoln and how much work it needed. I thought it had major issues because of all the oil that was leaking. Come to find out it was nothing but a power steering leak that they remedied in a couple days. Finding parts for this car is very difficult so the turn around was impressive. I received a call from Brian saying the car was ready. I asked him how much the bill was and i was like "WHAT, thats it?!" I was expecting hundreds and hundreds of dollars. Johns crew are thorough and professional. An automotive service jewel.

Bryan at John's Automotive is great- most importantly he is honest! I have brought my autos there for a number of years now. They have always done a great job and have even recommended that I HOLD OFF on work until later. With past auto service shops (especially dealerships-ugh!) I dreaded taking in my cars for an oil change because I knew they would try to scare me & try to sell me stuff I didn't need. This never happens at John's Automotive & the work has always been safe & great!

I cannot say enough about these guys. My "Uncle" (family friend) started working for this place awhile ago and if he gives the thumbs up....you know it is a good place. He is now retired but our whole family still goes to John's. I just had to take my car in for my 60k and turns out I was due for 3 other BIG ticket items. Fun. Brakes, tires, and rotors to top it all off. I knew it would be a costly job, but they did whatever they could to make it less painful. Go to these guys....and know they they will make your car safe, and not try to add on extra costs and things you dont need. It's a pain to drive from Eastlake to Mission Gorge, but I trust them completely. Now how many people do you know can say that about their car shop?? Comment from John E. of John's Automotive Care Business Owner 7/2/2019Joanna, thank you again for your patience while working with us to make this situation right for you! The safety of your vehicle and family mean a lot to us, so we greatly appreciate having your business with us. If there is anything else we can assist with, please don't hesitate to ask! Read more

5 stars aren't enough. This shop is the best; customer service/expertise - 10 stars. I'm not sure there are many women out there that trust their mechanic as much as I trust these guys. THE-BEST. Keep doin what you're doin! -Tarrah

I was referred to John's Automotive by a business friend. Having a car that is only 2.5 years old it shouldn't need much of anything but I drive a whole lot! I needed a place where I could trust the people to be honest and quick. Not only was the staff great to deal with but they were fast and my repair was economical too! I will definitely be sending anyone I know to them and I will also be returning anytime I need car repairs or maintenance.

These guys are GREAT! Fair prices and they're honest. They really care about your car. I will definitely be going back in the future.

I trust the mechanics that they really care about the quality of my car and will do anything in there power to keep it running smoothly, never have I had any issues with anyone or anything there!!! the staff is so friendly and make me feel comfortable in their environment with snacks, drinks, and conversation and about the service going into my car. Seriously the best place in town!!

One of the most friendly mechanic stores I have ever shown up to. I had an unexpected problem with my car and the tow truck that came to give me a lift recommended this shop. I am always very skeptical when dealing with a new mechanic because of numerous bad experiences, but this place seems legit. Unfortunately I did not have my car fixed because the damage was extensive, but Bryan was very upfront with his assessment, which was not one I wanted to hear, but I still appreciated it. After showing pictures and talking about the damage with a few mechanics I know well, his assessment was accurately corroborated too. Because I was clearly car-less they even offered me a ride home. What's more, they also have not asked me to pay a storage fee for the ~48hours that the car is being stored there, until I get rid of it, which I was dreading and expect the more shady establishments to jump on. I highly recommend going here for quality and friendly service.
