This place is great. I had a wiring problem in my break lights. They fixed it about a month ago for a very reasonable price. Then all of a sudden last week it broke again. I took it back and they fixed it for FREE... not only did they do that but they drove me to and from work (at UCSD) for FREE as well. These guys are seriously the best.
My maintenance needs have run the gamut over the years, from routine smog check and oil changes, to side-view mirror replacement and rotor repair, and everything in between. UC Service Center has met my each and every need promptly and at great prices.
I've been taking my cars/trucks to University City Service Center for more than 20 years now and have never once had an occasion to complain about their service, which is always fast, friendly, honest and professional.
The results are not always what I want to hear (as in, the brakes need work), but I've never been led astray on the work that's needed or the price. I trust Martin, Brian, and the gang to handle the repair needs of my kids' cars - and that's the best testimonial from any Mom! Thanks, Chad, Patrick, Pete, and the whole group for making sure that my kids are safe on the freeways of LA and SD
When I moved to the Clairemont neighborhood 7 years ago, I asked the neighbors where I should take my cars for service. Several recommended the Union station on the corner of Governor and Genesee. Thought I would drop by for gas a couple times before I tried out the service. My first impression was that this was the first station I had visited in many years that actually kept soapy water in the window-washing containers - great first impression. I've taken three cars (mine and the kids') there for service now for 7 years and have never had a bad experience.
Came in for a smog check without an appointment. They did it with in half an hour and sent my info to the DMV. At $50 total, it was a reasonable price. I'd go back.
I went in today for a smog check. Walked over to the Von's plaza, and as soon as I sat down to eat I got a call from Brian telling me my car didn't pass. I signed something with the price at 50, but he told me not to worry about it since it failed early on. Brian offered to work with my Dad on the phone (he's my main mechanic!) to fix the issue. The problem seems rather redundant, so I'm gonna take it home. Either way, I thought I'd recommend this place to other UCSD students looking for a smog test place.
I’ve been a customer here for about 5yrs now.. and i wouldn’t take my vehicle anywhere else.. Great customer service & mechanics who actually know what they’re talking about.
"I am so very pleased with the work done on my Hundai today! I had been given a quote that was double the price at another place and my Timing Belt was replaced and everything else was checked! I felt really great the way I was treated by Chad and everyone was so helpful and friendly. I drove out of there with complete confidence and I know I will return again with any problem I have with my car!
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!"
I have been going this gas station with my 1987 Toyota Forerunner since I can't remember when. It now has 219,000+ miles and runs like a charm. Brian and his team of professionals have always been professional, courteous and responsive to my needs. I feel their prices have been always been fair. They have also been servicing my 2003 Infiniti Coup. They do a great job. Also, whenever I need a recommendation for a service they can't provide, like upholstery, for instance, I can always count on them to provide a glowing referral.
