I highly recommend EZ Auto Repair if you are looking for a reliable mechanic in the Santee area. I am a plumber and I take all my trucks here for regular service. They have some of the best mechanics around and I always like supporting a local business.
Being a single mother, when it comes to automotive related things, I get a bit frazzled. Luckily I live right up the street form EZ Auto Repair. My car is a bit old, so it seems like every few months there is something new that needs fixing. Jim, the owner, always takes care of me. He even gave me his personal phone number so I can call him day or night if I have an emergency with my car. You really can't beat that customer service!
I wouldn't trust any other mechanic with my truck. A friend recommended EZ Auto Repair to me when I needed an oil change, and after talking to the owner and seeing the shop, I started taking my truck here for regular maintenance. I have been very happy with the services I have received so far. My truck has never run better.
