The problem seems to have been fixed - no further issues have been observed with my car. Thus, Ryan saved me time and money by not recommending more drastic measures. Ryan has high integrity, and customer satisfaction is a primary goal for him. I've only had two visits to Ryan's business this year, both for simple issues, but based on my experience, I'll be back when something else goes wrong with my car."

"Ryan Mode, of Mode Automotive, was the most honest, smartest, best mechanic to work on my car!! Mode Automotive has a beautiful shop and the best customer service ever. Ryan took excellent care of our car and found a problem that the dealer had missed. He saved us a fortune by fixing the problem while it was small. He did excellent work, was half the price of the dealer, and our car runs amazingly great. His explanation matched was was done and he could not have been any more professional. I urge anyone in San Diego to take their car to Mode Automotive to let the owner, Ryan, work on it. You will never find such great service and customer care in any other shop. I HIGHLY recommend Mode Automotive for any car. Ryan has fixed our Mercedes and both of our Jeeps. He know it all about car care."
