I went to this shop on the recommendation of Andy’s Muffler Service (which I also highly recommend). I have an older... Jeep Cherokee that needed an oil change and the suspension re-torqued after some previous work done out of state. John was honest and straightforward. The work done was top notch and the prices were fair. I’ll be using this shop for any future automotive work!read more

WOW!! Kim and John at Miramar Automotive & Transmission are just AWESOME!! I was interested in a used car that was for... sale at a dealership nearby. Since I am 1700 miles away I would be purchasing the car "as-is sight unseen". I called Miramar and spoke to Kim, she recommended a pre-purchase inspection and said she doesn't care which shop I choose, just make sure I have it done. Her knowledge and willingness to explain the details is why I chose Miramar to inspect the vehicle. I am comfortable purchasing the vehicle due to the extensive inspection report, estimate to correct the issues they found and photos they provided. I would recommend them to anyone and everyone who needs automotive repairs or maintenance.read more

As a woman with little knowledge on auto repair, I am always worried that I will be taken advantage of. Finding this... business was a gift. I have entrusted my car to Kim and her team for several years now. With an older car, I have had several major repairs and they have not disappointed me in their service and the quality of their work. Kim is very knowledgeable and always takes the time to explain the repairs. She is very responsive and easy to talk to. I completely trust their work. I would highly recommend this shop to anyone.read more

Kim is an experienced automotive advisor who gives accurate time and cost estimates and explains the work that will be... performed. This manages expectations on both sides so there are no surprises. After repair she summarizes how well (or difficult) the automotive work went so you can understand the final billing. I love this shop as an honest and well run one that I have brought all 5 of my families cars to for many years. I highly recommend this business and strongly suggest you bring your ride in for Kim to take care of!read more

We were preparing to purchase a used truck, Miramar Automotive & Transmission did a complete inspection for us. They... found a few small items (which were to be expected on a used vehicle) but they also found an oil leak that will be a costly repair. We returned to the seller with the inspection report, and he was willing to reduce the price of the truck. We were very pleased with the friendly, prompt and professional service we received from Miramar Automotive & Transmission!read more

My first mechanic was not able to replace my transmission. It was worth it to tow all the way to Mira Mesa to get my... transmission replaced. They did a super thorough check before hand that I was able to see online, it included real photos of my car. For example: my filters needed replacing and they sent pictures of that. The check found major things that my last mechanic did not find. And now that my transmission was replaced it works so much better! The owner is also super nice, respectful, and responsive which honestly does not happen often to me.read more

If you're looking for a trustworthy place to take your car for maintenance or repairs, look no further. Kim went above... and beyond to help me when I brought I my car in with multiple repairs and maintenance needs. Here are just a few of the things that really set Miramar Automotive & Transmission apart from other shops I've taken my car into:1) Kim and her team gave me regular updates on the status of my car.They provided me with a report with pictures of each aspect of my car. This included items like the color, pH, and fill-level of my coolant, the condition of my air filter, and the condition of my tires, etc.2) They were thorough with their workDuring their inspection they noticed some liquid had splattered inside of my engine bay. It turned out this was the symptom of an issue with my motor mount. They included those pictures in my report and helped me find an issue with my car that I didn't know I had!I've taken my car to OTHER shops in the past where they claimed a "100-point inspection" that included checking my reverse lights. All those other shops claimed that they had checked them and they were fine. Well they were broken (I had known it for a while), so I know that they didn't actually check. Kim's team was the only one that ever caught my lights being out.3) Kim helped me avoid doing repairs/maintenance that my car didn't need to save me money.I had requested some maintenance that they found I didn't need. It ended up saving me $200!Please keep in mind my car is like my baby to me so when I move to a new area it's very important that I find a shop that I know will take good care of it. Seriously, stop Google searching and just give them a call to schedule your appointment.Thanks again Kim and Zach it was a pleasure doing business with you! I'll absolutely be back in the future.read more

My 2014 Subaru had issues while I was on I-15. The temperature guage was almost on the red. I called them, Greg said... bring it in.. He and the mechanic Bob quickly diagnosed it that the bottom tank had crack. I already poured 3L coolant, all was draining. They fixed it, did a pressure test and gave it back like new (2Yr warranty on the work) - 5 Stars for No up-selling, very knowledgeable and reasonable folks.read more
