Welcome To Greg's Automotive

“Our Auto Repair Shops Stay Up To Date”

Welcome to Greg’s Automotive in El Cajon and La Mesa, CA, the trusted choice for professional and honest auto care in San Diego County. We’ve proudly been providing our communities with the highest quality repairs and maintenance at both of our San Diego locations for over 41 years. You can have peace of mind knowing that when your car or truck is at our shop, it’s in the hands of ASE Certified technicians who always strive for excellence and are passionate about what they do.

Greg’s Automotive is a full-service facility that is ready and able to assist with all of your vehicle’s needs throughout the years. From your vehicle’s general maintenance to major repairs, you can trust that our experts are here to help. Our shops have top-of-the-line equipment and tools in order to perform diagnostics and repairs on just about every make and model of vehicle. Plus, we stand behind the quality of our work with an outstanding 2-year or 24,000-mile warranty.

Here at our shops, we strive to make your visit as convenient and stress-free as possible. This is why our shops offer a local shuttle service within 5 miles and have discounted rental cars available for when you need transportation. We also have a comfortable waiting area with complimentary Wi-Fi, water, and coffee for you to enjoy. Our primary goal here at Greg’s Automotive is to always provide service that is backed by honesty and integrity.

Greg’s Automotive in El Cajon is proud to be a Smog Star Station and can test and repair directed vehicles, standard vehicles, and light trucks. We have an in-ground dyno and do both your emissions testing and any repairs that are needed to get your vehicle to pass. Our Helix location in La Mesa is not a Star Station but is still available to smog test and repair most vehicles and light trucks, with the exception of directed vehicles.

When you find that you need auto care, we want you to have comfort knowing that you can bring your vehicle to Greg’s Automotive and receive an honest evaluation and service recommendations. We aren’t the type of shop that tries to sell you something you don’t need - in fact, we let you know if we find anything and how long you can wait to get it done so that you can budget for it. We stay in business by doing right by our customers and treating each individual that comes into our shop as a family member.

If you need auto repair in the San Diego area, we invite you to Greg’s Automotive in El Cajon or Greg’s Automotive Helix in La Mesa. Give our nearest location a call today or schedule an appointment online for your next visit.

Folks at Greg's are ALWAYS prompt, responsive, communicative, fair-priced - I've used them on all our cars for nearly 10 years, and continue to return to them for service/maintenance/repair issues - hard to find this level of service out there - THANK YOU !!! Straight, honest auto repair work - Have seen them for years for maintenance/repairs on multiple family cars, they have always been honest, done excellent work, at a fair price - would gladly return as needed
Lori S.
We've been going to this garage for 10 years and they are great. They are always polite and efficient. We have had 2 cars and a 4x4 truck serviced by them and they have always been honest and never recommend anything we don't need. We are always treated with respect and Mark always greets us with a smile when we come in. I would recommend them to anyone who wants a trustworthy mechanic.
Oliver Hepp
Great and courteous service! They make recommendations regarding needed services but respect my decision to procrastinate or ignore until I feel it is warranted. I have been having the families cars serviced here for several years. I am appreciative that they expanded to the Helix location as it is incredibly convenient! Keep up the great work and you will have lifelong customers such as us!
