Encinitas Foreign and Domestic Auto Repair meets the Department of Toxic Substances Control’s requirements to be considered a 'Green Station'
“My husband has been taking our cars to this place for over 5 years and we completely trust them. On the times when they haven’t had the car ready by the time promised (very rare), they have offered us a loaner car, which is nice customer service. They always do a thorough job and we’ve never had issues of repeat problems or anything. They always let us know the things that will probably need to be taken care of in the future, but there’s never any pressure from them to do it now. Their prices are reasonable; they do offer a AAA discount and you accumulate points to use toward future repairs. All in all, the only place we have found that we trust.”
“Honest, considerate, helpful, informative, willing to help with better prices and fight warranty battles, etc.”

“Faced with a difficult diagnosis you have “gone to bat” for us. Your readiness to investigate and assist with warranty repairs has easily saved us thousands of dollars.”
“I’m sure that there is always a case that does not go perfectly but communication is a two-way street so I wouldn’t place all of the blame on Encinitas Foreign & Domestic! I’m a long time customer who has been completely satisfied over decades. I find all of the service personnel extremely knowledgeable and honest. I really trust the head mechanic who has kept two of my cars operational and safe well past their years. They may not be the cheapest place around (I don’t know as I haven’t price compared) but they are reasonable and you get quality service. In addition to the quality service, the place is clean and the employees friendly. I would highly recommend this repair shop if you have not tried it before.”
“The Crew at Encinitas Foreign & Domestic
Just wanted to say thanks for the excellent service on the Audi and the VW. It’s good to know that real customer service isn’t dead (despite the usual drone zombie insincerity you get from most businesses). It’s obvious to us that you guys are very coordinated in your mission to provide honest, respectful, efficient service in an often-intimidating environment for most people. We’ll be back.”
“I want to thank you for your caring attitudes, and especially you Dean for your expertise and pleasant attitude in solving my window problem in my old ’94 Camry.”
“Thank you for always taking such amazing care of me! The type of service & attention I receive here in your care is so rare – and so appreciated. Thank you!!”
“Dear Leo and Julie,
Wow! Did you ever make our day. As if the vintage cars weren’t enough, the gelato sent us right over the moon. It was such an unexpected surprise, and really helped add to the festiveness of the day. Thanks again for helping our community be able to ‘cruise down memory lane’.
“Thank you to you and team for repairing our 2000 Jeep. She is running great and could not be happier. We will be bringing all of our vehicles to you to maintain.”
“A big thanks to Ken and everyone at Encinitas Foreign & Domestic. I really appreciate all of the time & effort that was put into ensuring that my extended warranty company covered the appropriate services and that a mechanic stayed late working on my car to have it ready for me the next morning.”
“Dear Leo & Staff,
It lifts my spirits to know of caring and generous people like you. Thank you for your wonderful work!”
“As auto maintenance manager, I’ve had the unique pleasure of dealing with Encinitas Foreign & Domestic Auto Repair for the past 12 years. During that time I’ve found all our dealings to be fair and honest. Their work is beyond excellent, whatever term you can find for that. They diagnose problems that the big dealerships cannot, and more importantly make whatever repairs are necessary. They doggedly pursue any problem until it is resolved. Also, I cannot tell you how many times they have driven onto our property to help us with a disabled vehicle – it has been many times! I could never thank them enough for all they’ve done to help in the service of our fleet – their expertise and service are simply unmatched in my experience.”
“Dear Leo, Julie and the Entire Great Staff at Encinitas Foreign & Domestic Auto Repair,
WOW! What a fantastic year! Thank you a million times for your invaluable service. Many times this year (and always) you have taken on the impossible or rescued us in the final hour. Bless your hearts for the tremendous gift of your expertise and especially the generous, selfless spirit you each offer so freely to us. You embody what we all hope for in our relationships – true friendship.”
