Moisture is the enemy of your car's air conditioning system. The evaporator is your AC system's front line of defense against unwanted moisture. Replacing a car AC evaporator is not an easy job and should only be attempted by the pro mechanics at Alternative Automotive in Escondido.

Replacing the entire evaporator assembly will save time and money down the road. Accessing your car's AC evaporator is easy because it is mounted inside the cabin of your vehicle. In fact, you can access your evaporator through your car's glove box. However, the lines going to and from the evaporator run throughout your air conditioning system and replacing them requires the disassembly of the engine bay.

Crazy noise and then smell burning rubber, never good. Got it towed to Alternative Automotive and they diagnosed, fixed and got it back to me for less than I expected! I trust them.

This is the best auto repair/maintenance shop in North County. Forget the dealerships who pace themselves while repairing your car. Alternative Automotive gets your car done in a reasonable amount of time and Daniel handles all your questions with professionalism and efficiency. I don't have to worry about whether it was done right since I haven't had any problems since going here. I definitely recommend Alternative Automotive since Daniel listens to my concerns and then addresses them. He even replaced the battery in my remote!

Absolutely would not take my car anywhere else for service. All the staff including the manager Stephen were kind, polite. My residence is 30 min away, so having a calm and quiet lounge was a plus. It's worth the drive to get the best mechanics to work on your vehicle.! Gigi (*I legally changed my name)
