Customer Reviews

  • James Pettit

    I have a 1965 XKE that has been cared for by this group for over 20 years. Always honest, always fair, always excellent work.

  • Matthew Poliberg

    The Original Specialists replaced my Audi Q7 2011 brake rotors. Reasonable prices, quick turn around and the even washed my car. Like the Shop!

  • Chris L. San Diego, CA

    Highly recommended. I’ve taken my car there for servicing, routine and otherwise, a number of times (It’s a Jaguar. They break a lot.). The mechanics and technicians in the garage are very good at what they do and Todd and Mike in the front office are highly capable to work with as well. Everything is guaranteed and they live up to it. I’ve never had to bring my car back twice for the same problem and they’re great at explaining just what needs to be done. Even better is that if you’re a knowledgeable owner they’ll actually listen to you rather than just be dismissive like other places can be.

  • Bob B.

    Though I do most of the minor repairs on my Land Rover myself, I went down to San Diego to relax and had been to this shop in the past. My engine was chirping. Repair to the front drive belt and supporting bracket took less than an hour, comfortable waiting area. Fair price.

  • Anthony S. Temecula, CA

    I am an owner of a 2010 Audi A4. My check engine light recently turned on so I went to the Audi dealership to resolve the issue. The dealership quoted me a ridiculously high price so I decided to do my research and search quotes from other specialists. I found The Original Specialists very professional, knowledgeable, reliable and fair. The shop was very neat, the receptionist was welcoming, and the workers were patient and attentive. The shop quoted me an extremely reasonable price, and the issue was resolved immediately. I could not have asked for better quality service and I will be returning here anytime I have any issues with my Audi!

  • Catherine H. La Mesa, CA

    Been a customer since 2008. The service has always been excellent, except when Todd departed for a period of time. During his absence, my rating would have been one star! Now that he is back, the service has returned to the high quality I am used to receiving.They always provide a thorough inspection of my car and give me options for when repairs need to be made so I can budget for them.

  • Charissa M. San Diego, CA

    I’ve been taking my 1996 XJ6 Vanden Plas here since I bought it in 2007. Everyone here is very friendly and helpful, especially Mike. He is a real asset to the place. He and Todd act like they value your business, which is more than I can say for a lot of repair shops. The service is thorough and reliable, although a little pricey, but what do you expect with Jaguars? Lol! They have a free shuttle service, which is GREAT for single people like me!

  • Matthew P. Lake Elsinore, CA

    The Original Specialists replaced my Audi Q7 2011 brake rotors. Reasonable prices, quick turn around and the even washed my car. Like the Shop!

  • Allan G. San Diego

    I remember coming here over 20 years ago with my dad when I was a kid. Some of the same mechanics that were here then are still here now. These guys know their stuff! They are off of the Garnet Avenue exit and Damon Street and can be seen from the 5 freeway so they are super easy to find. They just started working on Land Rovers so if you have one, bring it here. If the service job will take a while, they do have a courtesy shuttle to take you where you need to go and they will wash your car when finished with it. There is also a lobby with a table, chairs, and coffee. I highly recommend this place!

  • Brooke G San Diego

    I found this place after purchasing my Land Rover, as the previous owners had brake and other work done there. It’s hard to call it a “shop” when it is so clean and pristine, not just the lobby, but the working/dock area as well. I just had a brake light that stayed on, but knew there was something else wrong, but not exactly what.They did a diagnostic and were VERY honest and caught a couple of MAJOR things that another mechanic missed. It turns out a belt was just about to break, and nobody else was able to see that, amongst other things.

  • Maxine S- San Diego

    Excellent work on my 1996 XJ6, they managed to mend and replace damages to the body and keep that old engine up and in tune in a timely and professional manner.  Would recommend this place to anyone having issues with their Jags, employees are nice, professional and honest.  Thanks Guys!
