I recently was rear ended in my BMW. I called the dealer and they recommended Amato's Auto Body. I asked around about Amato's and heard only good things from people I know in the car business. I had my car towed in the next day and received a call immediately from Terry at Amato's to tell me that the car had arrived safely and she asked me if I had any questions or concerns. I decided to visit them that day by her request. Terry wanted me to be assured that Amato's was the right shop to have my car repaired. I was treated like royalty when I walked in the office and Perry the manager spent a good 15-20 minuted answering my questions and explaining the repair process. They also showed me that they are one of the few BMW authorized shops in S.D. to work on my car. They have BMW trained personnel to repair my car properly. They also assured me they would not use aftermarket or used parts on my car. They negotiated the repair with my insurance company and handled every last detail completing the repair properly. When I came to pick my car up at completion I was again treated great and I felt that I was a very important customer to them. I also met the owner Paul Amato who showed me the back of the shop and how the cars get repaired. Needless to say my car was perfect despite the 15k in repairs. The car looks brand new! I also was given flowers for my wife and a free "dent card" to get any small dent taken out for free on Amato's. What a business! I have my own business and I can appreciate the quality of work and the customer service that they provide. I would strongly recommend this shop to fix your car. They are known for quality and they proved it to me with their workmanship and service to match!!

I have been hit twice in the last three years in two different cars. The last time, the car was 9 months new and received over $14,000 worth of damage. I highly recommend the shop and the workers in the office. They work with the insurance company. In addition, the employees at Amato's call you back when you call them and are very responsive. The turn around time is good. The quality of the fix to the car is above excellent. I can't say enough good things about this repair shop. The first time I used them was over 10 years ago and you could never tell that the car was repaired cosmetically. They are simply the best in San Diego. It is extraordinary to find the quality workmanship together with pleasant and efficient office staff that Amato's maintains. Needless to say, I highly recommend Amatos. Amy W, San Diego, CA

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.

I heard from a friend that Amato's Auto Body was the best in town!! She said even though I have a large 2006 Chevy 2500 they would for sure work on it no problem. Although I was so, so mad about my car being damaged & the situation I was in with an apartment complex people (the gate closed on the top of my truck).... Amato's made everything relatively painless for me. I dropped my car off, picked up a rental from Enterprise & was on my way. During the repairs there were some problems directly from Chevy with the parts. The roof of my truck (which was being replaced) had marker lights on the top of it from the factory. Chevy doesn't make that roof anymore so Amato's was having trouble getting a hold of the correct part. What I'm trying to get at is that Amato's kept me up to date on this issue so I wasn't ever wondering what was going on with my car at the time. What's funny is that Amato's actually ended up purchasing a regular roof for my car & cutting the holes in it for the marker lights themselves! What a great idea instead of making me wait for a part that doesn't exist! I really appreciated the great customer service I received. All in all it was a wonderful experience when the last place any person wants to be is in a body shop getting their beloved car fixed. I would for sure recommend this shop to all my friends & family.

Amatos Auto Body was recommended to me by my close friend(who is crazy picky) I figured I couldn't go wrong with the repair of my Audi RS4 that was hit in a parking lot. I was very surprised with this business. When I arrived for an estimate the office staff greeted me professionally and an estimator helped me immediately. All of my concerns about the repair of my Audi were answered and Amato's handled the insurance claim flawlessly. When my car was completed on my promised date. I came to pick the car up and inspect it. The $6000 repair was absolutely PERFECT. I couldn't find even the most minor flaw in their work. My friend came with me and he was equelly impressed with the body and paint work. Paul Amato was in the office the day I picked up my car, he introduced himself and thanked me for bringing my car to his shop for repairs. He walked out to the car with me and asked if i was pleased with the repairs asked if I had any questions. I was very impressed with all aspects of this shop. They have the reputation of being expensive but the old saying is very true, especially in auto repairs.....You get what you pay for!! I will recommend AMATO'S to everyone needing body work.

I am not the type of person to write reviews but i have to inform the public about this business. I just had my car repair at Amato's Auto Body for the first time after getting hit by someone that ran a stop sign. My car had 10k plus in damages and i could not believe it was the same car when i picked it up. They replace both doors and the back fender panel. You can NOT tell anything was repaired on the car! Actually it looks better that before the accident. My largest concern was the color match which is perfect, undetectable! The customer service and communication throughout the repairs were off the charts! I would recommend Amato's to all my friends needing body repair. It is no surprise that Amato's Auto Body has been rated Best Auto Repair shop in the reader review of RSF,Del Mar and Carmel Valley news. It's nice to see a business that strives to deliver perfection in a trade that has the reputation for never being right again. My Audi is PERFECT again!!

When my car was in a small accident a friend recommended this place. State Farm tried to talk me into using another body shop but the accident wasn't my fault and I found out that by CA law I could choose any body shop I wanted.

SO Glad I did because Amato's was wonderful.

My car looks new- you can't tell at all it was damaged.

I had bought a New 2008 Black Ferrari F430F1 Spider from and company in the Mid West. I had the clear bra installed, unfortunately they actually cut the clear bra on the car. When I removed it 6 months later I was in disbelief on why they would cut into the car. I had a company in LA repaint the car but when it was returned it had scratches and they botch the paint on the back.I dealt with Chris Amato and the car is BETTER THAN NEW... These guys are the best of the best and they will be getting all of my business moving forward... I have 7 exotic cars and no one else will work on my cars except for the crew at Amatos...

This place services some higher-end luxury vehicles so you would think they are good (the day I went a Lamborghini that had extensive bodywork done was parked out front). The customer service associates are very communicative and attentive to the customers needs. Most importantly, the quality of the bodywork is pretty good. They did a good job colormatching a tough paint color on my vehicle. Overall if youre lucky enough to have an insurance company paying the tab this is probably one of the better shops to go to, although if youre paying your own way I bet they charge a pretty penny.

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.

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.
