Always a pleasant experience.

So once you face the fact that dealing with a problem with a car is not going to be cheap, this place is pretty great for the money. My car ignition was locked and they fixed it that day before I had to get on a flight out of town. They also sent thank you cookies that were delicious! They were friendly and efficient- no complaints!

I took in my '97 Landcruiser to have a power window actuator replaced. I explained to Adam that I needed to minimize the amount of time my vehicle was in the shop. He arranged an appointment for first in the morning thing the following week. The technician was very experienced with power windows, and had the work done in about an hour. He also (without charge) fixed some frayed speaker wires while he was in there and the front speakers live again!In an age when getting your car repaired can be very stressful, Its good to know there is shop out there that has experienced, professional technicians, is fair with their pricing, and treats you like you've been going there for years.I will be going back!Thanks MM

Moonlight Motors -- Great, dependable automotive service and even better customer service. Best auto repair in North County.

I brought my 2010 Prius in for a pre-sale inspection today. Moonlight Motors was half the price of other shops in Encinitas and less than 30% of what Toyota Carlsbad wanted to charge. They got me in quickly, did the job thoroughly and swiftly, and were friendly to deal with. I'd recommend friends to take cars here and grabbed a few cards to share with colleagues.

Great Job! Very friendly and honest.

My car had been towed to Moonlight Motors at least twice now and I think my review is overdue. My car was first towed in December of 2011 and Marty had taken care of my questions with direct answers including a quote which he called me with after they found what was wrong with the car. My car was ready within a day for pick up and I was able to go to work the next day. They said my 2001 Montero Sport needed a new alternator and a battery. They also let me know that there's an oil leakage that could be causing the belt and battery problems but it might not be worth it to replace the belt because the car itself isn't worth that much.A few months later, my car was acting funny and died in the parking lot at the grocery store a couple times. They told me the car still have the oil leak but they're not sure if it's all that is. They changed the battery since the battery and labor were still under warranty and I didn't had to pay anything.In the recent months, my car refused to start and I had to have it towed again to Moonlight Motors. They again changed the battery since it was just under the last month or so of warranty. I didn't had to pay anything and the car was ready for pick up by the end of the day. They didn't push for a new belt or whatever, which I appreciate because the car is really not worth fixing. I'd rather fix the small stuff and ride it until it falls apart. I appreciate Marty being thoughtful that he stayed open so I can pick up my car because I couldn't get out of work until late. I also appreciate him not pushing it because it would have been ridiculous to spend as much money (or more) on a car that isn't worth too much. I think he understood I just wanted it to last for however long because I just want to get from point A to point B and not kill me on the freeway.

I got sick of spending an entire day to get my oil changed at the dealership, so I looked went to Moonlight Motors, where I had had some engine work done a couple of years ago. I am never going back to the dealership. Moonlight Motors took me the same day. I didn't have to wait in line to drop off my car, or to get it back. It was done in under an hour, and because it's situated in Leucadia, I just walked to Whole Foods and got breakfast. Next time I'm going to go running while they're working on it. I think I dealt with the owner and he was super nice. He didn't try to upsell me or find other "problems" with my car. The price was comparable to what I pay at the dealership, but the experience is a 100 times more pleasant!

Found these guys on Yelp and i've been happy with them! Taken my car twice for (different) issues. Adam and Marty are always helpful, polite and don't treat me like I don't know anything. They explain thoroughly what my car needs and don't try and upsell me. When they give suggestions on what maintenance I need, they understand when I say I can't afford everything at once. I will continue to bring my car here!

Moonlight Motors was a great find. They work on my car, my wife's car and my mother's car. The service has been excellent. I highly recommend them.On one occasion my battery died. It happened close to home and I had an appointment to get to. So I walked home to get wife's car. Then went to my appointment. When I finished my appointment I called Moonlight Motors. Marty sent two guys to meet me where I had abandon the truck. They got it going and took it back to the shop. The problem was fix. Moonlight Motors made something that could have been a big trouble easy. They are guys we trust and appreciate.
