My prius had a tire pop which sent me into a telephone pole. Luckily the little thing left me un-hurt. Took her to amatos and was well taken care of. Would return.

We had our Porsche Panamera rear-ended on a road trip this summer. I took the car to Amatos after reading some reviews. Service was great and the car is good as new.

Im a collecter of classic porsches and just moved the fleet down to san diego. Ive had one of my original 964 Turbos for almost 8 years now, and the paint was begginning to fade. It also had poor trim in many areas and a cracked bumper. Amatos was able to repair everything and the coat of paint I chose came out impeccable. I will be back.

I crashed my Porsche Cayanne over 2 months ago. I took it to another shop that a friend recommended but had the work experience of my life. They gave me the run-around for a month straight only to find my car hadnt been touched. I took the car straight to Amatos and was taken care of very quickly and I left feeling really confident. I cant wait to get my car back and im happy to say i finally cant sleep knowing its in good hands. 4 stars.

My wife backed into my car one night and unfortunately smashed up both of them pretty good. Ive had my M5 for years and I JUST bought my wifes 335i. Now I had 2 cars that needed work. Im not the kind of guy that likes to drive around in a smashed up car so mine went in first. Amatos was able to get the car back to me in just a few days and the wifes car is already at the shop! Cant wait to see the results.

Two weeks ago I was driving down the 5 late at night, it was foggy and i could barely see. I ran over some sort of object 10 minutes before making it home. When i got home i discoverd the reason for the unpleasent noise my BMW was making. Turns out my entire bumper was caved in. I took the car too Amatos as I have dealt with them in the past. I was taken care of right away and the car looks better than before. Thank you Amatos!

I have to say, I love amatos! I took my Mercedes C class in after i had someone rear-end me in La Jolla. I was dreading the entire experience but was pleasently surprised at how easy Amatos made the process! The car looks great and the finished it even faster than they quoted. Would definately recommend Amatos.

Amatos Auto Body is hands down the best Collision Repair Facility in San Diego hands down. Being in the performance car business for 8+ years, I have seen my fair share of good and bad work over the years. And it is extremely difficult to find a trustworthy auto body repair facility.

I had an unfortunate at fault accident where my Mitsubishi Evolution 9 SE hit a chain link fence. Every panel on my entire car was deeply scratched and unfortunately needed to be repainted. After making a claim with my insurance provider, I called Amatos Auto Body and asked if I could have my car sent over.

Once my Insurance provider assessed the damage of my car, I was put into the very welcoming hands of the Amatos staff. There facility is top notch, and made me feel good about leaving my car with them. Since this was the first accident that I had ever been in, I was unsure of how this entire process worked. Alicia was more than helpful and laid out the entire process. I left Amatos that day with complete confidence in their operation.

Amatos updated me on my car weekly with the arrival of parts ordering and progress status. Within a very short amount of time, I received the phone call saying "Your car is good as new, and ready for pickup!". After that, I rushed over to the shop, and my jaw dropped when I saw my car. It looked even better than it did when it came off of the showroom floor. They did an A+++ job from start to finish, and I couldn't be happier.

Their customer service, hospitality, professionalism, and quality of work is top notch. They are the best Auto Body Shop in San Diego hands down, and I would recommend them to anybody.

There is a reason they are Factory Certified by Aston Martin, Audi, BMW, Infiniti, Mercedes, Porsche, and Volkswagen.

Our experience with Amatos was like something out of a bad movie ?? the kind of story you think will never happen to you. We were involved in a low speed fender bender with our lotus. We had never had any body work done on the car, so I began calling around to get referrals for a place that might be the best to fix it ?? the car is made of bonded aluminum and fiberglass, as well as being finicky and British. The local lotus dealer referred us to Amatos, and we made it there just before they closed on Friday. The management all seemed friendly and we signed the authorization to let them inspect the vehicle. That was the last bit of friendliness that I felt from their management. About a week later I was sent the repair estimate as it was passed to my insurance, and was shocked to put it mildly. There were parts on the estimate that I felt sustained no damage at all, but my biggest concern was the parts prices listed. I began to call around to find out what prices I could obtain for the same parts. I was able to find most of the high dollar parts at substantially less price than on the quote. I then went down to Amatos to let them know I would be providing some of the parts, and to sign the repair authorization. I was quickly referred to a manager, who in my opinion was instantly mad at the proposition that I was going to provide the parts. I was informed that they would have to review with other management if this was allowable. I was taken aback by the change in reception from my first contact with them. The next morning I received a call from the lead manager, who was also not pleasant to speak with. He let me know that I could not provide the parts because Amatos provides a warranty on the parts it provides. I replied that all of the parts I purchased already came with a warranty from their manufacturer, so I did not need Amatos to warranty them as well. At this point, the manager became more angry in my opinion, and told me that these types of jobs do not have a high profit margin for them, and if I did not let them provide all of the parts they would not work on my vehicle and I would have to go somewhere else. I was then sent a bill for over $1,000 for the estimate Amatos provided, which had to be paid before my car would be released back to me to take to another shop. I have never been thrown out of a business before, so I was quite livid at this point and started to go thru the estimate in more detail. For reference the car was struck at low speed in the left front wheel, and damage was limited to that immediate vicinity. Amongst the labor charges were line items for the right rear view mirror, the right door, the right door lock, and other items on the opposite side from the crash! None of these would need to be touched to repair the damage in my opinion, as the front of the car comes off with all of those still in place. There were several line items for ??fenders? ?? a lotus has no fenders. The entire front of the car is one piece of fiberglass, and there was already a separate line item for that. The best item I found was ??re-program memory functions.? I am assuming this was to be done to me once I got the final bill, as a lotus has nothing electronic that can be ??re-programmed? (most do not even come with a radio). In my opinion I cannot imagine a worse experience at an auto body shop.

I recently got into a pretty bad accident in my brand new Camry. I was devastated and was definitely not looking forward to the process of dealing with insurance and body shops that was ahead of me. My friend recommended Amato's Auto Body to me because her car was recently there and she was completely satisfied with the service she received. I called my insurance and they told me to take my car to several different places. I went ahead and called Amato's anyways, and they informed me that insurance companies try to steer you in their own direction to benefit themselves, but by law, people can take their cars wherever they want to. I brought my car in there for an estimate, and a few days later, I dropped off my car. Throughout the entire time, they called me to let me know the status on how far along it was. I was so pleased with the fact that I was in the loop the entire time. When I got my car back, it looked brand new again! I was especially excited to see that they matched the color perfectly! Nobody would ever be able to tell that I previously crashed my car. Paul Amato cares a lot about his customers & has created a body shop that definitely does the best work in San Diego, not to mention they even gave me a gift when I picked up my car :) I would recommend this shop to anyone who wants to make the best out of a situation that is not so great.

I had minor bumper gouging on my super BMW. No big deal, but I'm finicky and wanted to get it done right. The folks at Amato's did it.
-- I got a reasonable estimate in 5 minutes
-- They took the car and got it done when they said they were going to, right on the estimate
-- Best of all, I could not discern the difference between factory paint and their work, and it was a tricky metallic red.
-- I was kept informed by phone all along by attentive staff who were friendly and knowledgeable.

We have been going to Amato's for 20 years. They define "making the best of a bad situation" when you have an accident. From rental car coordination to excellent communication to getting your car back even better than it was before the accident...Amato's delivers five star service all around.

I was backed into in a parking lots. My bumper got scratched. Not only did Amato's do a flawless repair and paint job, but they also arranged a rental car for me at a fantastic rate. Their whole team was so efficient and pleasant. The follow up customer service was impressive as well. AND they cleaned my car for me too!

Recently, I had my car smashed into while it was parked. This was the first time I ever had to deal with something like this and was very uncertain about where to go. My insurance referred me to a few different body shops. After speaking with my Lexus dealer they referred me to Amato's and thank God they did. Listening to my dealer was better than listening to my insurance company because the body shops the insurance company reccomended were not for MY best interest.

Going to Amato's was easy, fast, and stress free. Paul Amato was friendly and concerned about my needs. He is very knowledgeable and helped me with my insurance and rental car. I will now always go to Amato's and refer them to everyone.

I had a fender bender with my F-150 & was referred to Amato's by a buddy who had work done there. They did a great job! They stayed in contact with me & my insurance company throughout the process & got my truck back to me when they said they would. I would definately use them again (but I hope I don't have to)

I am a person injury attorney who has worked with many body shops for over a decade. Every client who has gone to Amato's has been very happy with their work and service. I personally have been in need to repairs to family vehicles twice in the last couple years and Amato's did such a nice job you could never tell the car had been damaged. I would highly recommend to anyone.

From my very first contact to the on time completion, I was treated with the highest level of Customer Service I have ever experienced. The front office staff took over with the insurance company, updated me at every step of the process, and did so in a very calm business like manner, explaning things and answering any questions.
The professional technicians did a fantastic job of repairing the damage to my car. I know where it was hit, and looking at it now I cannot tell it was ever hit, In fact the whole car looks better after its stay at Amato's.
This place is a TEN.

My car was hit in a parking lot - the nice person who did it left no note. My insurance company said I could use any body shop I liked, and after some research Amato's stood out as the best rated body shop in San Diego.

The reviews were spot on - this is THE best body shop I have ever dealt with. There is no way to tell my car had been damaged and repaired; I know where to look and I cannot tell! The work they did is perfect.

I highly recommend Amato's!

AMAZING!!!! This is by far the best customer service I've experienced in all of San Diego for anything. I can't recommend them enough. 5 Star service, communication and quality throughout. Thank you Amato's for making it such a pleasurable experience.

I recently had to replace a front bumper on my Mercedes CLS AMG 55. From the time I arrived at Amato to get a quote, through dropping off the car and the cycle time to repair, the staff was professional, friendly, polite, competent and efficient. I hope I don't have to get anymore body work done to my car, but if I do, this is the only place I would even consider going. By the way, their office decor (more like a movie theater than a body shop) is the coolest office I have ever seen!

Easily the best body repair work in all of San Diego. Amato's specializes in higher end cars, but do not hesitate to take the Honda or Toyota. Have used this company for years for minor and major work and never gotten anything but FLAWLESS service and repair work. Even my insurance company agrees with that assessment.

Amatos is the best. I have used them for the last four years and the service and work they do on my car is the best. I have never had a problem with their work and they even loaned a car to me when I was in a jam. I would never go anywhere else. Thanks Paul and Ali
