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.

I have been doing business with this station for more than 10 years and I must say that I am continually amazed by how quickly they are able to get my vehicle repaired and returned to me! I have had a complete engine replaced here...IN ONE DAY and the work has been done right!

Been coming here since 2010. I've had everything from smog checks to oil changes to brakes done here and more. They are always friendly and accommodating and I really appreciate how quickly and efficiently they get the work done too!

I received such great service when I went in last week for a clicking sound under my hood. I thought it was my engine, but right when I pulled in, Joe (a mechanic) heard it and thought it was a belt. I told him I didn't have much money, so if he could just give me a quick estimate and see if I could do the work myself. He checked it out for about two minutes and brought me over to show me what was wrong. It was the timing belt that was rubbing against its casing. He showed me how to fix it if it started making the noise again. He didn't charge me to do that and he filled up some fluid that was low.

I have been taking all of my vehicles to University City Service for over twenty years. Martin, Brian and Scott are great. Their crew can fix and repair almost anything. In this day and age it is hard to find an Automotive Service and Repair facility you can trust who has honest people. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

Everyone wants to trust their mechanic and these guys earn it, time and again. From a practically new Jeep with a different issue every 3 months from "unknown causes" to a Dodge truck previously written off as totaled, and even an Escalade with over 250k miles - Bryan keeps all our vehicles running. Never a repeat issue. And when I might personally call myself "car stupid," he will investigate all my concerns. No diagnostic fee.

Went in to have a car and a truck smogged a couple weeks ago. The staff was very friendly and easy to deal with. The place seemed well organized and very professional; I appreciated how honestly the business seemed to be run. Both vehicles passed and I will be back for any more repair or smog.

Been going to UC Service Center for years and they have always taken good care of us. Not cheap, but hey, this is San Diego. I would recommend them as fair and trustworthy.

Really bummed I'll be moving away to law school soon and I'll have to find someone even half as trustworthy as them. Seriously, really great customer service and service on my car as well.

Not only are these guys amazingly nice but they always know how to fix my car problems. I was originally referred to them by a friend and since then, I've been referring all my friends there as well.

As a girl, car repair shops usually take advantage of that and charge me a ridiculous amount and tell me I need to get EVERYTHING fixed but I've been coming to these guys for the past 4 years, and I don't trust my car with anyone else but them.
