Encinitas Auto Repair

I visited Moonlight motors when my wife's car started experiencing some issues. I picked them based on their Yelp reviews and hoped I wouldn't get taken.It wasn't an inexpensive service. We had to have a replacement done on some computer - and it stung. I called a dealership to price check what they would charge and it was pretty comparable - so I was content.I came back several months later with another issue, I had feared the same one - but after checking it out and testing it - it appeared to be a dirty sensor that was an easy fix, just difficult to pinpoint on the problem. I expected to pay a nice chunk, but when I called to ask about the cost, they said they would only charge $40 for the time it took. I considered that to be very fair and will continue to go back to Moonlight Motors for my maintenance.

My wife and I both have been taking our cars to Moonlight for a few years now. I thought of them in high regards before today, but they found a way to raise the bar. I had them do an oil change a month ago, and the oil filter gasket busted leaking oil everywhere and making the car undriveable. I gather this is a pretty rare occurrance, and I don't know if it was the shop's fault, but they took care of all of the clean up and repair free of charge. I didn't expect nor ask for that, and they could have easily done otherwise. Honest mechanics aren't hard to find if you know where to look!

I was referred to Moonlight Motors by the AAA tow truck guy. He said his family does business next to them and that they were honest and did great work. He seemed sincere so after the dealer's estimate of $800+ for my 2006 Toyota Corolla S I took it to Moonlight. They were very friendly, straight forward and knew what they were doing. I had serpentine belt changed, throttle body cleaned, transmission fluid done, oil changed, rear brakes done and an inspection of the exhaust. They finished this all in one day. The bill came out to $440.00, HALF the cost of the Toyota dealer! They are upfront about their charges, didn't try to up-sell me on anything and they clearly list their hourly rate on the invoice, along with the actual time it took to do the work...and the hourly rate is pro-rated. Drive belt, .55 hrThrottle body clean, .60hrTrans Service, .80hrRear brakes, 1.80hrInspection, .20hrOil change, .11hrAll very honest in my opinion...you can't do an oil change much faster than about 7 minutes which is around what they billed for. Same with all the other services. They had about 3 Porsche's they were working on so people must trust them locally with their expensive cars. I've definitely found my regular shop!

We have been taking our vehicles here for 5+ years. Honest, friendly and they always do great work. Marty, Adam and the rest of the staff always take care of us!

Great place! My daughter and I drove her car across the country, when we arrive in CA it was running rough. I didn't know where to go but found great reviews here and now I know why. Marty is VERY helpful, kind and honest. So thankful I found this place for my daughter's car. My husband was somewhat nervous about us getting taken advantage of....Marty even took time to talk to my husband over the phone. Great service and great guy!

Honest, reasonable, friendly, quality work from Marty and his entire staff. I take both of our vehicles to moonlight and have always been pleased.

I have used Moonlight motors for several years, always getting great service. Recently, Adam, the geneal manager, got my car smogged for me saving me thousands of dollars. Another service center wanted to charge me for a new transmission, but Adam got the job done for under $500. I appreciate the integrity and service orientation of Adam and Marty, the owner. They have earned my trust.

Took out 2000 Subaru here and were very pleased with the honesty and friendliness of this place. Very willing to prioritize our repairs by safety so we didn't have to do them all at once.
