I was told it was a very busy day and the wait would be 45 min. It turned out to be well over an hour. I needed an oil change and tire rotation. When the tires were rotated they found 2 nails in two different tires. I wanted to have them fixed right then but I had waited so long that I had run out of time. I too had a very busy day planned. The staff is always friendly and courteous. We bring all of our cars to Precision Tune Auto and will continue to do so but next time I will arrange to be dropped off and not wait. 10Dependable and honest10The management staff (Mr. Sarangi and others) and the personnel at the El Cajon location are very honest and trustworthy.
