Customer Service

 At Escondido Auto Tech, we are committed to building a relationship with you to assist in maintaining your vehicle to keep it in top condition. At every visit, we will inspect your vehicle to ensure that you leave with complete knowledge about the condition of your car and that you understand all of your options. 

In The Beginning...

Escondido Auto Tech was quickly nicknamed E.A.T. by a growing loyal customer base. Starting out as a small two technician shop, E.A.T. grew along with the Escondido community. Then in 1998, the owner purchased the land under E.A.T. and began the transformation that has brought us to the state of the art facility of today. Not only did the owner expand the building but completely remodeled the entire facility.

...Still Running

In keeping with that goal to be the best, E.A.T. has always hired the top, most experienced technicians and management in the industry. Furthermore, with the acquisition of the most up to date equipment and ongoing education and training E.A.T. is the facility you want to bring your vehicle and refer your friends to.
