Looking to get some work done on your car or truck? Then check out Poway Precision Automotive, at 13867 Poway Road.
“We do everything expect tires and paint,” said owner Dirk Jones. “There’s nothing mechanical that we don’t do.” The shop offers full service
automotive repair and some body work, everything from a simple oil change to a complete engine overhaul. “We offer full service, bumper to bumper,” said Jones.
Some of the services Poway Precision Automotive offers include all areas of brake repair and maintenance, alignment, heating and cooling repair and maintenance, and engine and transmission repair and replacement.
Poway Precision Automotive has been a staple of Poway Road for nearly 30 years. Formerly part of a franchise and known as Poway Precision Tune, Jones took over nine years ago. A year and a half ago, Jones took the shop independent and renamed it Poway Precision Automotive. “Why pay someone for nothing?” Jones said of his decision to leave the franchise and go independent.
Despite the changes, Jones said everything is the same when it comes to the quality of their automotive work and customer service. “Nothing has changed. We strive for 100 percent customer satisfaction,” said Jones. “We excel in diagnostics, and getting [your car] fixed right the first time. There’s nothing we can’t diagnose and fix.”
Jones said he also makes sure all his employees are highly trained. “We’ve built a super quality team of guys, from Jay behind the desk to the technicians,” said Jones. “They’re always continuing their education, and certifications are a must. We’re constantly improving.”
Part of that improvement is the opening of a second shop, Poway Accurate Automotive, at 13530 Pomerado Road # B. Opened last December, Jones said the new shop is “pretty much cloned” from Poway Precision Automotive, offering the same high quality service in a second location. “Now we can serve the entire city of Poway, and the surrounding areas,” said Jones.
Poway Precision Automotive is open 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. Monday - Friday, and 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. Saturday, closed Sunday.
