I have 3 cars. A Ford SUV 203,000 miles, Honda Civic 140.000 & Honda Accord 299,000 miles. All run spectacular thanks to the great staff at Alpine Auto. Let's face it, in this economy, who can afford a new vehicle? I will be driving these for many more years.

I own a 2004 Dodge Magnum and completely trust Alpine Auto with it. They have always given me great value and excellent customer service. They excel in troubleshooting and get work completed in a timely fashion.

I've been to Family Auto Service - Alpine several times, and I've never felt like I was being ripped off. They did what I asked them to do, and recommended whatever the dealer's scheduled maintenance suggested. Each time I go, they do an "all over" inspection to see if there are any loose ends, or what have you, but they've never messed up my car or charged an arm and a leg. I use my car for work, so I appreciate them looking for future blow outs. I'd rather fix something small now than something big later.

I went to Bob's for brakes and to run a diagnostic. I was extremely pleased with their service. I told them exactly what I wanted to spend and they worked with me to get my car's top priorities fixed/replaced. I liked how they didn't pressure me into making a decision, rather they made recommendations about my car and offered prices/services. Â I felt their service was fairly priced and they explained what was happening with my car step-by-step

We normally do our own repairs, but took our daughters car in. They were fair and prompt.

It's great to find a repair shop where there's no doubt about their honesty or competence. This place is clean, friendly and faster than any of the dealerships we've used before. I used to hate dealing with getting the car fixed but Bob Bowen's makes it as painless as it can be.

Thank you for leaving us your comments Bernie! I appreciate you taking the time to leave our shop such a great review. Quality customer service and timely but thorough repairs have always been our specialty and we are glad to hear that our staff made your repair experience comfortable.

Like another reviewer said--this place is old-school.  We never had any problems with the repairs they did and the service was always pleasant and efficient.  They weren't the cheapest but did a good job.  The only reason my H. stopped using them is that he found a mobile mechanic thru a neighbor that he really likes and the guy comes to  our house to fix the cars and does good work.  I would not hesitate to go back to Bob Bowen or recommend him though.

Thank you for leaving us your comments MaryLou! We are sad to hear that you are going through someone else, but are happy to hear that you enjoyed our services while you were with us. Please feel free to call us any time for  your auto repair needs.

Bob Bowen Auto is an old school, independently owned shop that does a great job at fixing cars, any make, year or condition. Â I was referred by a coworker, and got a referral discount on the brake job that needed, a great value. Â Have taken a couple of cars back there since, great prices, service and man, they get it done really fast. Â If you like old classic cars, chances are that there's a couple there in process of repair or restoration that you can see. Â Good place.

All of us at the shop appreciate you leaving us your feedback Scott. It has been a pleasure working on your vehicles and we hope that you will continue to use our services in the future. Thanks again!

Comparable prices and an honest business. I don't feel ripped off when I leave this place. They offer a discount to SDSU students. They always seem to fit me in.Clean place and convenient location.

Thank you for leaving us a review on Yelp Maria! As a local business we want to help out our local community as much as possible and that includes SDSU students.
