Great, quick, and quality service by James and his team. Very honest and knowledgeable as well, and overall a great person to trust your Porsche with. Will definitely look to come back.

I drive 30 miles each way to get my oil changed here. James is the best! Highly recommended!

David Miyasako Via Google Review

James and his crew are fantastic. They are the only indie mechanic I will let touch my Porsche. I've been 100% satisfied with their work (oil change, plugs and wires, water pump). I always recommend CAPE to friends I meet who are also Porsche owners. Got my business for life!

Andy M., Aliso Viejo, CA Via Yelp Testimonial

James was wonderful to work with, my new shop for everything my 911 needs

Eric Hargis Via Google Review

Used Cape Auto for the first time today. Like most Porsche 911 owners, I'm a little nutty about my car and who touches it - at all! James, the owner, obviously, knows everything about these cars and has the confidence of many local members of PCA, Porsche Club of America. Their trust is well placed. I spoke with James at some length. I was never speaking with a "salesman". I'm please with the work performed and my comfort level handing over the fob. I'll be using Cape Auto from now on.

James is great guy. If you are a Porsche owner you need Cape Auto to service your Porsche right. Quick and reliable alternative to Porsche dealer.

George Lai Via Google Review

They did a good job of replacing the coolant pipe and the starter in my 2004 Cayenne S. The crews are friendly and very knowledgeable on Porsche. I would recommend this place.

James is awesome. I have been coming to his shop for many years and he has professionally serviced all of our cars. Best mechanic in SoCal.

Took my newly purchased 977 08 Turbo for an oil change/check-up to Cape. I got the recommendation from a couple of members on the Porsche 911 Enthusiasts club site. I was not disappointed. James and the team were brilliant - not only were they very knowledgeable and experienced, but also extremely friendly and patient They answered all of my questions (I had a lot!!) and made sure I was completely satisfied with the service. It is a pleasure bringing the car into these specialized shops where you get much more of a hands-on and personalized experience at a fraction of the dealership cost. I highly recommend other Porsche owners to visit James at Cape Auto. I will be a returning customer!

Tony C., Irvine, CA Via Yelp Testimonial

Just had my 991.1 911 Turbo S serviced and repaired by the experts at Cape Auto. They a extremely knowledgeable and did excellent work. James was very nice to work with and they are reasonably priced.

Doug D., Rancho Santa Margarita, CA Via Yelp Testimonial

James sure knows his Porsches. Great shop and very reliable. Thank you Cape Auto for such great service over the years. I don't mind driving an hour to bring my cars to your shop.

Chris Richardson Via Google Review

Great shop here, everyone. I had my current car, 996 Turbo, inspected here before purchasing it and it was extremely thorough. Other shops claiming to be Porsche mechanics in the area all refused to do PPIs. Since then, I've had them replace my water pump as well and I felt confident the entire time they would do a great job. Every single car in the shop is a Porsche which is everything I want to see. It is a clean shop and they will show you the nitty gritty details of the work to be done. Recommend 100% to you Porsche owners.

Stephen E., San Diego, CA Via Yelp Testimonial

James fixed my smog failure on my Carrera. Awesome

Lee Thomas Via Google Review

Dropped off my Cayman S for oil and brake service and Brittany was extremely knowledgeable. The car was ready when promised and great prices.

Budz B., Mission Viejo, CA Via Yelp Testimonial

James and his crew have been in business for a long time for a reason. He knows what he's doing and he is one of the most trust worthy guys when it comes to repairs. He's worked on a variety of cars for me over the years and he's always gotten it right and has never tried to sell me on unnecessary repairs.

John Ackerman Via Google Review

I am learning more and more about Cape Auto Repair. Thanks Steve for the recommendation!!!

Dick Douglass Via Facebook Review

James is an honest and knowledgeable professional. I believe that he can and should be trusted by the Porsche vehicle-owner community.

Paul L., Laguna Niguel, CA Via Yelp Testimonial

Only place to bring your car. We have been coming here for 15+ years, with our Honda and other cars. Very fair pricing and always lower than the dealer.

C.J. Land Via Google Review

Did a PPI on my 993 and found competitive prices with awesome professional service! The report was thorough and the people I dealt with were professional both on the technical side and on the customer service side. I will go there again

Eddy D., Santa Monica, CA Via Yelp Testimonial

James buck at Cape Auto is simply the best. Excellent mechanic that has fixed and service my 2007 Porsche 911 perfectly every time during the last 5 years and for the lowest cost than ANY other shop in OC. You want the best service for the lowest and most reasonable price, go to Cape Auto.

Dan Stone Via Facebook Review

This place is pretty cool. The guys knew what they were talking about. Not only that but they were really helpful and cool. I highly recommend this place to anyone who needs their car fixed. Everything was quick and not too expensive, all the prices were reasonable.

Johnny V., Laguna Beach, CA Via Yelp Testimonial

I have been bringing my '87 Carrera Targa here for service for the last 5 years, after Andial closed. The staff is very knowledgable and competent. Prices have been extremely fair, coupled with the car always working great afterwards - I have never had to bring it back for a repair gone awry. Based on that, there's no reason to take your Porsche anywhere else for service in Orange County.

Karl Gierach Via Google Review

Cape is the BEST Auto repair in Laguna Niguel, James is not only attentive but also an expert in his field, he is interested in ensuring he goes above the call of duty!

On two separate occasions I stopped in to Cape. The first time I needed a small repair to my rear light. The price cost effective and James also went out of his way to fizz out a small issue with the paint on my Prius that was unrelated to the issue he was working on. The second occasion he gladly conducted a courtesy inspection on a potential car I was going to purchase. If quality work and integrity is important when you do business, then Cape should be your go to local shop" ... Cape is the SPOT!
