Here's what some of our satisfied customers have to say about Aiwa Auto Repair:

Lee and his team are awesome they do a great job and are super friendly and reasonable!

Kathleen M.

Great customer service and no BS.

M. Tran

Aiwa Auto Repair has been doing a great job servicing and repairing our vehicles for the last 13 years. We are always confident we will get a fair and honest diagnosis and quote when bringing our cars in for repair. Additionally, they stand behind the quality of their work. Aiwa is a trusted member of the community.

Kevin M.

I will never take my cars anywhere else. I can't say enough about how honest and trustworthy they are. I could write a ton of positive superlatives and paragraphs of great experiences where Lee has bailed me out ... just take my word and go there. It isn't fancy when you see it, but they do the job the way it should be done.

Andrew S.

I've been taking my suv here for years.I would never go anywhere else! They are honest, efficient, reliable and extremely reasonable. Being a woman I have paid for unnecessary work at unreasonable rates but I don't have to worry about that here! Ladies if you worry that you'll get ripped off because your a woman come here and never have to worry about that again!

Sherry A.

Love the service! Lee is amazing, honest and provides quality work! thank you!

Anthony M.

Super honest repair shop. They perform quality work and don't try to screw you over. Very fair prices as well. The only place that I take my car in San Diego.

Joseph S.

I have been taking my care to Aiwa for over 10 years. Having tried different shops in this area over the years, it was my lucky day when I found Aiwa. They are first of all trustworthy, but also accurate, friendly and fast. I would not take my cars anywhere else and have recommended them to my family and friends. You will not find a better repair place to take your car.

Clay B.

Fair, friendly and I won't go anywhere else!

Kristen G.

I have been going to Aiwa since my former mechanic retired about 3-4 years ago. I initially selected Aiwa because of their 5 star rating on Yelp. Being a non mechanical women, this was very important to me. I've never had reason to regret my decision. Aiwa has always been honest, dependable, certainly reasonable cost-wise and just great to work with overall. Service reminders and cost estimates have always been appreciated and extremely helpful. I would highly recommend them!

Helen T.

This place is amazing. Very cheap and affordable. Changed out my oil at the fraction of the price of the Acura Dealership as well as performing key maintenance on my car. Recommend to make an appointment because they're usually busy, which shows you how many loyal customers they have.

Vnhlong L.

We have been taking our vehicles to Aiwa for over 20 years. They have superior service, highest quality repairs, and friendly people. And very competitive pricing as well.

Michael R.

I knew this place well when I had my VW JETTA, check engine light was always on and AIWA took care of me. I also appreciate them for their honesty on repairs and I have been going here ever since.


I've taken three cars to Aiwa over the last six years. The service has always been reasonable and outstanding. I constantly recommend them to friends and have never had anyone come back disappointed. The prices are very fair and their diagnostics are accurate. My advice is to call ahead and schedule an appointment. Because they are so good, they can get busy. But it's usually a matter of picking the best time to bring your car in, not a matter of waiting an excessive time for service. Five stars.

Tim M.

I have found from using Awia for about 2-3 years now that they are very straight forward, honest, and have great affordable prices for their parts and services. I would recommend them to anyone.

Roxanne P.

I've been going to Aiwa for almost 5 years now and I pretty much won't take my car anywhere else. They have a talented group of mechanics and the staff has always been honest and friendly whenever I have to bring my car in. Lee does a great job managing the shop and he's always straight-forward when it comes to estimating a repair. Just be sure to make an appointment, because they are usually very busy!

Bill K.

I have been taking my cars here the past few years and have always had a great experience. Prices are fair, they finish work when they say they will, and I have always felt I could trust the people working here.

Eric S.

Great place, convenient close to home quick oil change didn't mess up my day off.

Adriana R.

Aiwa Auto has been my go to mechanic for years now. I no longer have anxiety when I need repairs as they are trustworthy and actually very well priced. I regularly take my 2002 Audi Allroad there and my 2010 Mini Cooper S. This takes a huge stress off my life trusting a mechanic.

Aston R.

AIWA is the best auto repair place I've ever been to. Very competent, inexpensive and courteous as well as fast repair. Winning combination.

Andina A.N.

These guys are simply the best!

T and Le are both extremely helpful and professional.

I had taken my truck in to another auto repair shop twice before to fix my check engine light problem. It was becoming an iconvenience for me, and since they failed to fix the problem, I chose to go to another shop. Fool me twice, no dice.

Aiwa fixed the problem, and told me what the other shop failed to diagnose. No more check engine light, which was a huge relief.

All these great reviews are definitely warranted, as I was more than pleased with the results of my repair.

From here on out, I know where im talking my truck.

Javi N.

This is by far the best place I ever been to for a car repair. They are friendly, helpful, professional, and above all HONEST.

The concern I had was my car was shaking when I pressed the breaks. I first took it to BMW of Escondido, and the service adviser there said it was a broken bushing and quoted me $700 to fix the problem. He then said there were other issues (oil, etc) and to fix everything was $2300. It didn't make much sense to me and my feeling was that this was an attempt to rip me off. I went on yelp and found Aiwa Auto Repair, took the car to them, and they found the BMW claim was kind of bogus, and when they looked at my car they found a completely different issue; it was the break pads. They fixed within the hour for $70!!! How amazing is that! I really appreciate their help, honesty and great work! This is now my new place to take my car for repairs! I love this place! Thank you again!

Heithem S.

There is not of goodness. Suddenly my car got problem with the start. They helped me to start and it was in an amazing time. Everything I can say about them confidently. They are polite well behaved and efficient.

Poul F.

5 stars for honesty!! I have never had such a good experience at a mechanics ever, and will not take my car anywhere else from now on. Took my car in because of a couple of maintenance issues from which I was told by honda and napa that would cost me around 600 dollars! I clearly was being upsold for things that didn't need to be done. I brought it in, they told me the honest truth, and went way above and beyond what I would ever expect (and I'm a tough customer). The guys here are so nice and treated me with the upmost respect. I've always felt like a victim when I take my car to a mechanic, but I won't anymore now that I've found aiwa! Thank you so much!

Chef M.

T, Le, and the staff are car wizards. Always honest, affordable and savvy. I recommend Aiwa to my friends and family.

Cory C.

My lovely wife needed some car repairs and she located this place because of Yelp and we were not disappointed. "T" or "Le" were polite, fast and friendly. The work was done as promised, in a timely manner and at a good price. We will be back in the future for our auto repair needs.

Jeff J.

Le and his staff are friendly, honest and very professional. I've brought my car here for simple stuff like brakes to having my A/C compressor swapped out. If you are looking for an honest mechanic that won't rip you off with unneeded work this is the place to go. Highly recommend Aiwa Auto Repair.

Tom H.

All the 5-star reviews you see for this company are DEFINITELY deserved. A friend & I were sharing 1 car for awhile & when it needed an oil change, she found Aiwa on Yelp. I went with her to drop off & pick up the car and was consistently impressed with the service, especially from Lee.

The oil change was a very reasonable price, they did a free full-car diagnostic to find any other possible issues, and never pressured either of us to buy anything extra. Last but not least, as we were leaving, Lee noticed that one of the rear brake lights was out - he waved us down & replaced the bulb for free ... now THAT'S service! :)

Victoria K.

I've only been taking my cars to Aiwa for a year, but they have taken great care of me and my vehicles each time. I first tried them out after seeing all the 5 star reviews here on Yelp. I'm glad to have discovered it wasn't too good to be true.

I really appreciate the honest and straightforward service they've not only provided me, but I've also seen provided to other customers. I'll continue to go back to them and recommend them to all my friends.

Alfred P.

As long as these guys are in business I will never go anywhere else.

John W.

I never thought I would have a relationship with an auto repair shop, but my '99 Land Cruiser is a very needy child -- I've had to replace the coolant, timing belt, spark plugs, and battery within a span of 6 months. I appreciate that Le has always been clear and straightforward each time I've been there, and that he'll let me know when I don't actually need new brake pads and tires (I am a worrywart). He also kindly takes the time to explain the minimal amount of information I need to know and am able to take in when it comes to the mechanics of my car.

Frances L.

Been going here for 2 years to service my Inifiniti QX4. Le and T have been extremely helpful and have always given me comfort of knowing my car will be taken care of.

If you're looking for a reliable shop that will take care of you, this is the spot to go. I started going here becuase of the ratings and reviews from other yelpers and they all provided very helpful.

Eddie N Christine Q.

My fiance really likes this place, so I decided to check it out after postponing my long overdue car checkup. Yeah, my check engine light had been on for like a month. And my car was like a sputtering turtle on the freeway. So I was afraid of all of the things they would say would be wrong, but they were helpful, and honest. They didn't recommend anything I didn't need. And fixed only what I came in and asked for.

I would definitely come back!

Mimi Q.

Generally I dread going to the mechanic, its worse than a blind date and eating beets combined. Aiwa however, is the exact opposite of the norm for auto shops. They go above and beyond with customer service, and are the first auto shop I've ever been to which didn't try and push additional services on me. Service was reasonably priced, fast and effective.

I came in with a brake light issue, and these guys had my car finished within the day. They didn't try and sell me on anything extra, called me 3 times during the day to keep me updated, and even drove me to work from the shop, all for under $70.
