Chula Vista- San Diego Junk Yard Reviews


Auto Wrecking Reviews in Chula Vista, San Diego right here. Take a look at our most recent customer reviews who choose to consistently use Standard Auto Recycling as their source for auto parts.


“Standard Auto Recycling provided a transmission and installed it in my 2000 Nissan.  I gave it several weeks to be sure it ran well.  It is running well.  This is a “no frills” operation that provides excellent service, the best prices, and even a guarantee.  Tom and Tito are very knowledgeable and know their inventory.  I highly recommend them.”

“Tom, Tito, Nikki, and the rest of the crew at Standard Auto are amazing. I deal with these guys on a regular basis because I work in the claims department of an automotive company. I won’t go into how stressful my job is but I will tell you that these guys make it a lot easier. When I call 99% of the time they have exactly what I’m looking for and the one time they didn’t, they went as far as hunting down this almost impossible part to find and pointing me in the direction of where to get it. Excellent customer service, knowledgeable, reliable, friendly, reasonably priced… I could go on and on but call them and experience it for yourself.. You can thank me later.”

“Tom, the owner, is very honest & fair.  We bought a Ford Bronco II that needed a transmission.  We live in San Tan Valley, AZ and he had the transmission shipped to Yuma to save us 3 hours driving time. Tom was willing to find one for us and we found one here locally in AZ.  Tom was very helpful through the whole 3 week process and he never balked on accepting responsibility and gave us a complete refund after we found the correct transmission.  People in San Diego County are very lucky to have such a fair & honest auto parts supplier in your local area.  I highly recommend Standard Auto Recycling to everyone!  5 starts isn’t enough I would give him a 10 because of the fairness and honesty.”

“Needed some hard-to-find Mini Cooper S used parts to restore a GF’s car to CARB standards – my local wrecking yard (in Escondido) recommended these guys – Tom not only had parts and took my CC over phone, but part was on counter ready when I went down next day, and they hadn’t run my card (waited until I picked up part). Also rather more cheery and friendly than some auto recycling places.

Worth the almost 50 mile slog down to Chula Vista!”

“I have a 1989 Acura Integra, needless to say finding parts is not easy. A friend told me about this place so I called they were very helpful and friendly. I live in FL so I had to have the part shipped.  It showed up in great condition and I was very happy. I will be a returning customer if I ever need anything.”

“I come here first every time I have to recycle ANYTHING! This can be a dirty/smelly job and the people that work here extremely happy with what they do every time I come in. I found their pricing to be most Fair around and recommend these guys to anyone.. Good job guys!”
