Testimonials

  • Quality of work is top notch here and they take their time to troubleshoot all the issues in detail and provide the appropriate recommendations and educate the owner (Derek and Alex are great). You will never feel pressured to do anything you don’t want to. The price is also reasonable and the facility, including the waiting room area is well maintained, clean, and welcoming. I have both of my cars serviced here and have no reason to switch. Highly recommend.

  • Excellent shop ... professional, knowledgeable and factory trained individuals on Porsche, Mercedes, BMW and Volkswagen. Even have the factory authorized diagnostic equipment that typically only the factory dealers have on-site so the most challenging issues can be diagnosed, reprogrammed and/or updated. Very fair and reasonable estimates. Could not be more pleased for my Cayenne, X3 and Mercedes.

  • If you are looking for a auto shop that will quickly, safely, and correctly fix, repair, or service your European vehicle, I would highly recommend Escondido German Auto! Derek and his team have always work together to answer all of my questions and concerns and then follow up several days later to insure my vehicle is preforming to meet my expectations. I will not take my European cars to anyone other then Derek and his team at Escondido German Auto!

    I woke to a dead battery and other electronic issues today. Alex answered the phone and made me feel welcome and hopeful taking my car to them. Once there, Alex was very efficient and helpful. The shop was clean and the lobby very welcoming. Free water , sodas and coffee. The mechanic quickly identified the issue and I was all set ... in and out the door for a GREAT price.... Even more I would have paid more and been just as happy because the service was so AWESOME !!
