I can't believe I just now heard of these guys. AWESOME service. Can't recommend enough. I see why people have been taking their vehicles to this shop for a long time. They got my 2007 4Runner diagnosed and repaired very efficiently. Kept me updated the whole time including an email of the full inspection report prior to installing parts. They were never pushy about doing extra work as they saw needed, just brought up extra issues they saw and asked me if I wanted to address those areas or not. Very fair prices and I will be going back to them for any future work.

I highly recommend SD Trux for taking care of both maintenance and repair for Toyota vehicles. John and team have kept my 4Runner running incredibly well for several years and I’m now happily over 310,000 miles!

John, Darrell and the crew have been taking excellent care of our family's 4Runners for over 10 years (since moving to San Diego). Our first one was still running at over 300k miles when totalled. They're servicing our newest addition 4Runner since after the free service through the warranty ran out and will continue to be the only people we trust with our service needs.

Bought a used Tacoma that had a squeak under acceleration and some serious road noise. Did their overall $65 inspection. Best $65 I’ve ever spent, they gave me a full report (with pictures) highlighting the issues and severity of each. I usually do all my own work (because nobody else can seem to do the job properly) but am very glad I took the chance on this place, the attention to detail was VERY good. They even caught a brake caliper pin inserted from the wrong direction (no functional problem but different from factory direction)They are very responsive, honest and I never felt pressured to do anything. Per their recommendation I had them do my front wheel bearings and a new driveshaft. Drives like a whole new truck. I asked and they only use Toyota OE parts for their repairs.Truly impressed with the shop and process as a whole. Highly recommend this place to anyone.

I found out about San Diego Trux through a Land Cruiser forum, and took my 100 series there after seeing that the shop had been recommended a few times. John was extremely helpful and easy to work with. I had a previous quote for a repair recommended by another shop, which John let me know was not needed. I was ready to spend the money, but his honesty saved me about a grand. Overall, great customer service and a great experience. I will be taking my LC here from now on.

John and his crew are awesome! I used to take my 88 4x4 there and now I take my 07 FJ Cruiser. I know it'll last many years with SD Trux doing the work.

Used SD TRUX from 2011-2015 for our Sienna prior to a move to Wisconsin. Having worked in the automotive industry for 10 years, I'd like to think I know a little bit about vehicles, car service, and customer service. SD TRUX exceeded all expectations. Personnel turnover in the automotive industry is extremely high. Associate with someone who has roots and will be there for you time and time again (and save a little cash too). You'll find John personable, honest, and a pleasure to work with. His operation is a blessing for San Diego Toyota & Lexus owners.

Really it comes down to product knowledge when working in any industry. John and his crew at SD Trux know everything about Toyota's, my 1999 Land Crusier runs so much better after taking it to SD Trux on Wednesday. Can't wait to start modifying my Lando with theses guys to make the ultimate Mexico adventure Crusier! Thank you SD Trux for being an honest place to get amazing work done, for a great price. Real Toyota parts put on by real toyota mechanics, oh they are more professional than any toyota dealership in all of California and believe me I have done my do diligence I love to research everything I love to do and 4x4 is pretty close to the top of my list. Thank s again guys!

John and his staff are awesome, I had two good friends who recommended him and am thankful they did! I have the utmost confidence that when I bring my car to him that he will always be honest with me, give me a fair price, get the service done in a timely manner and treat me like I am a member of his family. A few years ago when my mom passed away, I took in her old car for John to take a look at it to make sure it was in good running condition (we were going to sell it to a family friend) and after spending about 30 minutes checking it out and saying it was in great shape, he would not take any type of payment and made sure I was ok in dealing with my mother's recent passing - needless to say, he got a customer for life.

An honest Toyota and Lexus shop. These can be hard to find. I have taken my car here for the past 8 years or so without any issues, ever.

This is the only Toyota specialist in San Diego that I trust with my '04 4Runner and my wife's '08 Camry. It is an absolute pleasure to deal with John on the phone- he actually understands the specifics of each of the vehicles he deals with, as compared with a service writer who may have no experience with mechanical issues.After absolutely PATHETIC experiences with multiple Toyota dealerships in the region, I needed a trustworthy shop and couldn't be happier. There is no pressure for unnecessary services at SD Trux - any legitimate issues are well described and, in my experience, repaired to factory or better than factory condition using OEM parts.My 4Runner has 175k hard pavement/off-road miles, and I fully expect it to crack 300k with the assistance of John and his team at SD Trux.
