A friend brought me to Kobi Auto for some frontend work I needed on my car that my ins company had lowballed a repair estimate for me. It is so hard for a single woman to find a trustworthy mechanic but I found one! I have to say I felt so comfortable dealing with Raz, but even better, the work was done on my car quickly, professionally and without any hangups. I am so glad my friend brought me to meet Raz! Thank you Kobi for a great job done.

had brakes done here at kobi
price was reasonable
1 week later clunking noiise from front end
took it back kobi supposedly repaired it

2 weeks later my car is idling rough
kobi inspected the car and informed me
that car needed a new computer that their
diagnostics showed a defective computer
and that they could replace for 600.00

had another mechanic look under the hood
he determined that the rough idle was from a vacuum leak replace rubber hose for 2.00
no more rough idle

he also checked front tire where noise was coming from, found the brake caliper loose
removed bolts by hand, they had electric tape wrapped around the bolts, threads on caliper bracket had been stripped and this was kobi s
way of fixing it.
if you value your life and money find another
mechanic

I'm on an extremely tight budget so i always comparison shop. I badly needed front tires and an alignment for my truck. I called several locations and gave them my budget and what i needed. None would budge, even though on one occassion it was only $16 dollars over my limit. I called Kobi and spoke with Raz. I told him what i needed and the lowest price i had found at a place on Slauson and Figueroa (about 20 miles away). i told him i was on a very tight budget, he understood my situation and matched that price. The staff at the shop was pleasant and professional. I am very happy with the treatment, the service and the price. If you comparison shop like I do, i recommend you include Kobi in your list of calls.

My regular repair guy recently moved his shop so I shopped around until finding Kobi. The place looked neat and had lots of work going on so I gave it a try. My 2001 Dodge Stratus had an engine light on, a tranny leak, the brakes pulsed slightly when coming down the York exit off the 2 and it needed an oil change.

The bad news is that they weren't very responsive or fast. I had to call them for updates and it took several days (mostly due to delays getting a part from Dodge). The good news is that the diagnosis on the tranny was encouraging (leaks can get expensive) the brakes were judged fine for for now and the engine light was the evaporative control system and tests indicated it was probably due to a loose gas cap.

All together the estimate was for 250 and the bill was $196. The leak is fixed and the engine light has not come back on. There were 3 opportunities here to run up a much higher bill. They could have said I needed new brakes, that the dohicky on the gas tank needed to be replaced and that the transmission leak required lots of work. I would have never known. They didn't inflate the bill and I'm happy with the results.

I think I'll go back. :-)

All I can say is the best place you can go to. They have the best service and the best prices. They may you feel like you are family and they are so honest. I took my care to another shop and they were going to charge me an arm and a leg but Raz and Steve gave me a great price. Love them!

I'm a long time customer that followed Raz from Tom and Jerries Auto. Raz and Steve are the best; they make you feel like you're part of the family. They provide excellent service, reasonable rates, and the go the extra mile to help their customers. I absolutely recommend Kobi Auto Center for all your auto needs.

I have had only wonderful service at Kobi Auto Center, my friends and family are also devoted customers to Kobi. They are courteous, professional and proficient. The owner Raz is a great guy and used to own Tom & Jerries Auto Repair in Highland Park. If you need someone you can trust, this is the place for you.

I only went to this place a few times when the other guy owned it, but these new people are fantastic! I had a problem with my brakes and they fixed it super quick and for way under what the other guy wanted. The new owner, Raz explained how they just bought the place recently and wanted to develop a good reputation in the area by giving good, fast service and lower prices than you can get it done for around here and that if I ever need anything major done, they would be willing to give me some other needed repairs for FREE! Say my car was in there for body work after an accident or a major mechanical repair and I also needed a bunch of service work done , that repair will be free, parts and labor. The new owner Raz said to ask for the "Service Advantage Promo" when I had my car in. If I didn't need anything at that time, they would give me a credit for future service or repair work up to $300 and now days that could really help. Try them out I think they are really trying harder to please....

I had been looking for a Auto Center for a while now. I wanted to find a place that was honest, did everything I needed there and gave me a good price and I found it and am very excited about it. I never write reviews but I just had to let the world know about this place. First off, this Auto Center is under new management and new owners so alot of things have changed. These people treat you like family and go beyond to help you out. I have had problems with my mercedez and I have gone to over 5 other shops including the mercedez dealer and non of them could figure out what my cars problem was until I took it to Kobi. Not only did they fix the problem but also charged me a good deal and did it fast. I mean these people know what they are doing. They really know how to treat a customer and their cars. I have given out many of their business cards and I will continue to do so. You have to go see to beleive because words cant say enough about this place. Its like a dream come true. I hope this helps :)

First off, I had Kobi Auto do brake work on 09/2004. At that time I did get a feeling that I had finally found an auto repair facility I could trust. Less than 2 years later, my brakes were once again going & now totally shot! Today they said that the left front caliper wasn't functioning properly & wasn't releasing like it should... causing rapid pad wear resulting in metal on metal... which also required a replaced rotor. This all may be true, but... one would think if brake service is done, that a service shop should catch some fault such as this during routine inspection during service.

I let them repair my brakes once again, along with a couple of other repairs and the thing that really bugs me and has me questioning this facility now is being told that paying CASH will be less than paying by CHECK... OR a Credit Card! HUH? WHAT? I've heard of shady business practices before charging more for a credit card purchase (which is illegal in the state of Calif., but with certain circumstances that require a merchant to do this the right way), regardless I think it's unethical. I was told it was to cover costs the bank charges them for credit purchases & they add a "tax" to cover it. A TAX? Please!

They couldn't explain the "check" scenario, so it wasn't discussed further & I got the so called "cash discount" paid by check anyway. Also, I had asked also for an oil change, but it wasn't done. I don't know why & didn't ask because at that point I didn't care.

I seriously doubt I'll be doing business with them again. I just get a bad feeling here. It's really a shame since I thought I had found a reliable service center I could count on. Time will tell.

I had a flat tire and no spare. I *hate* getting any auto work done without my husband present (bad experiences) and I was all set to go to American Tire Depot based on reviews here, but the tow truck driver recommended this place. They charged me less than ATD quoted, got me in and out in an hour and a half and taught me thing about my car I didn't know (of course, I looked it up on the Internet when i got home to make sure they were telling the truth - they were.) I will be going back here.
