FTS Auto Repair wants your business

FTS Auto Repair Inc. wants your business.

And they’re willing to go out of their way to get it.

About 25 percent of the business of the family owned and operated auto repair shop at 5165 Cass St. in Pacific Beach comes from La Jolla. Operators would like to improve on that, and they have a number of things working in their favor.

“It’s easy to get to, there isn’t a lot of traffic like there is on the other end of La Jolla,” said Joe Di Maio, FTS office manager. “We are part of the Napa Car Care Center, which means anything done here has a nationwide warranty at over 17,000 centers.”

De Maio said FTS, which has been in Pacific Beach for three years and in Kearny Mesa for 18, does complete auto service for European, foreign and domestic cars, trucks and SUVs.

Services provided at FTS include brakes, alternators, axle and wheel bearings, mufflers and exhaust systems, catalytic converter replacement, charging and electrical service, engine rebuilding and replacement, computer diagnostics, cooling systems, CV joints, drive shafts, fuel injection and heating systems, shocks and struts, suspensions, transaxles, transmissions and clutch replacement.

Despite the recession, business at FTS has been thriving, said Di Maio.

“It’s  actually been a little better than normal because people aren’t buying new cars, they’re realizing finally that you make more money keeping your car than you do trading it off every three or four years because your registration is lower, your car insurance is lower, you don’t have car payments, you’re not paying any interest, etc.,” he said.

Di Maio said Toyota Camry is the car make they see the most of at the repair center followed by BMWs and Ford Truck F150 and Ranger models.

Shop hours are 7:30 a.m.  to 5:30 p.m. weekdays.

There are two other important reasons for choosing FTS. Said Di Maio: “We don’t recommend anything you don’t need and we treat our customers like we treat our family.”
