John, and everyone at Continental Motorworks, saved us. After a couple of problems with our old mechanics we ended up stuck outside of SLO. They got us in ASAP, fixed the issues caused by the other mechanics, walked us through the whole thing, and managed to get it in all under warranty. Hundreds of miles later and everything runs as it should!

I’ve taken my vehicles to Continental for many years, always with a positive outcome; quick, efficient, honest, reasonably priced. I’m happy to say the new owner and management of the last couple years is just at good at providing positive outcomes.

Triple A happened to tow me here once and it was worth breaking down to find these guys. Super friendly, fast, well priced, the customer service kind of absurdly good. Basically I trust them and I never really have before with any autoshops. Feels like a local gem of a shop from bygone times

It's hard to find hard working, honest mechanics these days but Continental Motorworks has this in abundance! I was expecting a hefty bill based on what AAA contractor suggested what the problem was (new alternatow) but pleasantly surprised that all I needed was a new battery! I will be using these guys for all automotive needs in the future!

John, and Continental motor Works is the best mechanic in the area! I have lived here my whole life and used many mechanics all over SLO county. I’ve never had my vehicles taken care of so promptly and professionally as when I’ve taken them to Continental motor Works. I’ve used them multiple times now and every time they were able to get us back on the road ASAP. My diesel truck broke down one day before we had a family camping vacation planned. I called John, he was able to get my truck in right away, found the problem, which wasn’t exactly an easy fix, he was able to fix it in time to be able to load our camper and boat and head to the lake on time. He literally saved our vacation. Most recently my fiancé’s minivan broke down in San Luis Obispo. I called John to ask his advice. He tried to talk me through the problem to help me fix it myself before I brought it in, which is very uncommon for a mechanic, as anyone will know. I was unable to fix it myself so I brought it to him that very same day. He found the problem that day and was able to get it fixed the very next day. Not only did he fix our van but he Dropped me off back at my truck after I dropped off the van to him and delivered it himself to my girlfriend at work when he was done to save us a trip. Not only did he drop it off, but he dropped it off clean. They wash every vehicle that they work on. Our vehicles have never run better, and my fiancé’s van hasn’t been that clean since we bought it. Ha! I recommend John and Continental motor Works to anybody in San Luis Obispo, Los Osos, or any neighboring towns in SLO County

I can always rely on John and the team at CMW! They’re great at what they do, and have been so helpful keeping my cars on the road and safe for my family. It’s been a blessing being able to rely on very knowledgeable, helpful, and highly technically trained car experts. They have great car care packages and have given me invaluable advice that saved me money in the end! Thank you John!

This place is the best! I was on vacation and my vehicle broke down. Called AAA and basically didn’t have much choice. Had it towed to the nearest repair shop that they recommended. So I was pretty apprehensive as you can imagine. Had to get home so I left it, rented a car and drove the 300 miles back home. Without writing all the defense tails, let me just say ~ one of the very best experiences I’ve ever had with a vehicle repair shop. John (manager or owner) ensured I was i was able to secure a rental car. (I was driven the to 2 different rental facilities by his driver) the car was repaired for quite a bit under the estimate. He kept me informed and a week after driving it home he texted to ask if I was satisfied and the car was running well. I only wish this shop was closer to my home. If you live anywhere near here, I would not even think of going anywhere else. Thank you AAA and thank you John at Continental. Ted

CM was great!! High quality work, quick turn around, very professional, and pricing that is more than fair and reasonable. I’ve lived in SLO a long time and have taken my vehicles to many different places over the years, including the local car dealers. Continental Motorworks is exceptional and I will keep bringing my business to them. Good honest people who care doing excellent work with excellent pricing!
