About Moonlight Motors

Moonlight Motors was founded in 2004 by owner and operator Marty Smith. Years ago, Marty realized that he was spending more time fixing cars for his family and friends than he was working as a full-time manager of Bridgestone Tires. He found that he has a passion for repairing his loved ones’ vehicles and wanted to extend that to the rest of his community. This led Marty to establish Moonlight Motors, named after Moonlight Beach, which is just within walking distance of our shop.

Over the years, our business has been built on the foundation of excellent customer service and integrity. We treat every customer like family and have invested in the best talent and equipment in the industry in order to provide the highest quality of repairs to our patrons. Our mission has always been to simply help the people of our community by keeping their vehicles running well, thus making everyone safer on the road. We are proud to say that we have now serviced over 50,000 vehicles!

Moonlight Motors has quickly become a trusted family member for hundreds of San Diegans who have brought us their vehicles. We measure our success by the number of repeat clients and referrals we receive — and these valued relationships have become the foundation for our rapid and continued growth. Our Encinitas auto repair shop proudly has eight service bays, three outdoor waiting areas with comfortable seating, and a comfortable office area in which customers can relax.
