“Paradise Auto and Truck Center is AWESOME! My daughter came home from college for Thanksgiving and her car was in serious need of mechanical help! I called Charlie last minuet to explain I only have the day after Thanksgiving for him to work on car. He made a special accommodation for me and sure enough the car was repaired just as he promised!

As a father it gave me a sense of piece when she took off back to college knowing the car was repaired and repaired correctly.

Thanks again to Charlie and gang at Paradise Auto and Truck Center.” Gary S

“I always get good service. Fast, reliable… and honest! I NEVER get up-sold. The guys are beyond friendly and patiently answer all of my questions. I live 30 minutes away and would travel twice that knowing I can trust them!!”

“I have been a customer of Paradise Auto for over 20 years and remained even after it was sold to the new management in 2005 or 06. Each time I have taken in my Jeep Wrangler I have been impressed with the Customer Service, their concern about fixing the problem and the reasonable fee for their services. I just picked my Jeep up Monday after bring her in that morning. They diagnosed the problem and fixed it that afternoon so that I could pick it up the same day. Rich and I appreciate their kind, friendly and expert assistance.” Richard H

“We have been going to Paradise Auto for several years. They are great. They are efficient, easy to work with, very informative and most importantly, they are honest. I would highly recommend Paradise Auto!” Misty E

“I appreciate the clear communication AND the fact that Darren had put the extended warranty info into the computer months ago and called, took care of that on his own, and got back to me with those numbers….I had forgotten about the extended warranty but he saved me a few hundred dollars. Thank you!” Joy T

“This time I took my car in to charlie with serious engine problems. He fixed me up right away. My bill was far less than expected and it runs like its brand new! Thanks Paradise Auto & Truck Center in San Marcos!” Craig G

“I met Charlie through a business mixer in North County a couple years back and am always glad to see his smile when getting out to promote my own business. Then disaster hits and kids and I find ourselves with a vehicle too dangerous to drive. Charlie and his team did some major work in very little time to get me back to driving safely 🙂 Honest and friendly staff.”

“I have a 2006 Chevy HD 2500 Duramax Diesel. I’ve taken very good care of this truck sense buying it new and don’t just hand it over to anyone to turn a wrench on it. The experience I had at Paradise Auto was unmatched. They staff and owner were courteous and very professional. They quoted me a great price and meet my needs on time. Great job Paradise Auto, I’m very satisfied . Needless to say you have a new customer for life.” Junior D

“Excellent service from a knowledgeable and friendly staff. Called-in ahead of time and got my estimate and then made an appointment to come in. Service was fast and I am very pleased with the quality. Service even included a warranty and that’s the icing on the cake!! Highly recommend!!” Kareem P

“Always professional, always prompt, extremely service oriented. I can count on their service and friendship!” Dorothy M

“I was referred to paradise auto by a family member. I like that they are honest they don’t tell you work needs to be done if it’s not needed. They have great customer service. They inform you if they see problem they discuss it with you with no pressure to use them or let you decide to do work. I highly recommend them to do your autos” Wayne L

“I have been taking my cars and trucks to Paradise Auto for many years and their service and honesty is definitely 5 STAR.” Phil W

“I found Paradise Auto & Truck, Diesel & Marine through a local business networking group. I decided to try Charlie’s shop to support other members of the weekly group we were both in. I was already happy with another North County mechanic I’d gone to for 3 or 4 years. I figured I’d just quickly switch back if it didn’t work out … my other original guy would never even know I left. 😉

I’ve had several good experiences with Paradise but all the details boil down to a feeling of trust. I can rely on what Charlie and Darrin his service manager tell me needs to be done and what is merely optional at this point and can wait weeks or even months. This type of honest prioritization and explanation is very helpful for me. Definitely a (non-mechanical female) female-friendly car joint!” Theresa H

“My experience was GREAT as always. Darren has been such a help and support in all my repairs. He is so professional, knowledgeable, and helpful. Everyone who works there is great, and I feel the personal touch from the whole staff. Thanks for always doing a great job!!!” Steve P

“Great, friendly, honest service!!! Not only did I have my oil changed for a low price, but while it was being changed, they took me and brought me back from a business breakfast I needed to attend. They have a very clean, comfortable waiting area and my car was left clean. I am recommending Paradise Auto to everyone!!!” Dianne F

“They did a great job, on time on budget. The work was done on my work truck so a quick turn around was really important!! In and out in one day as promised. Their pricing was competitive as well. They earned my business.” Michael T

“From the moment I first met Charlie, I know my car would be taken care of. Not only was Charlie knowledgeable and helpful, but so was his employee, Darren. They were kind, efficient and didn’t recommend anything more than what my car needed. They communicated during the whole process and I never felt like I was being taken advantage of. I will definitely return and tell my friends.” Barbara K
