– The Shop –

Located in Lakeside, CA,  Horizon Automotive is one of San Diego's finest automotive repair facilities.

We understand that car repair can be stressful and inconvenient. And unfortunately, most people have had a poor experience with a mechanic. We hope to change that! Horizon is a different kind of auto shop:

  • We strive to speak plainly and communicate clearly.

  • We won't try to sell you something you don't need.

  • We will quote you an honest price and work with you to find the best solution.

Hopefully you'll give us a chance to earn your business.

One word: Trust. Dwight is an honest businessman who communicates with timely estimates and repairs combined with integrity and first class customer service. I’ve called on him repeatedly for all of my auto repair and maintenance.
— Brian K.
Dwight is friendly and never talks down to the customer. On more than one occasion I have been there picking up my car and another customer is bringing in theirs because another shop messed up the job. These guys have the skills to fix other mechanics mistakes. Check them out.
— Amanda B.
Wonderful experience. I’ll never go anywhere else.
