What Our Clients Say:

As always, Moonlight Motors exceeds expectations. You might be able to take your vehicle to a mechanic and get repairs done, but there is no where that beats Moonlights customer service. They have referred me to Oceanside Transmission (who are great) and even to GMC when I had paint peeling off my truck. They always go the extra mile without having to ask. As a return customer, I have had issues with faulty equipment that was installed and Moonlight was dedicated to fixing the issue, free of charge. For my loyalty, my last oil change and tire rotation was free. What a great surprise! Thank You Marty, Adam and the team at Moonlight Motors. Just like family.

Inspection, service and recommendations were accurate. Price was less expensive than dealer.

This was my first visit to Moonlight Motors. They provided clear information about services I thought I needed. I authorized some additional services they recommended. I have a big list of recommended service that I think was partially fulfilled. Will definitely go back there for next service.

I appreciate the excellent work Moonlight Motors has done in keeping my Honda on the road for many, many miles. Marty, Ken and all the mechanics have been top notch. I highly recommend them.

Ive gone to Moonlight Motors a few times since I moved here a year ago and have always found them super friendly and helpful. Ive always been given honest advice and never felt they were pushing any unnecessary extras. Definitely plan to stick with Moonlight.
