These guys are the best! They never do unneccesary repairs and do the work super fast. Tony will treat you right, man or woman. All the shop guys are friendly too. You will be happy you went there & will recommend this place to friends as well!!

KO Automotive was recommended to me when my car failed to pass the wonderful California test. I took the car to one garage I had used before, but after keeping it for a day and a half, they were unable to find the problem. I took it to KO and Tony's crew diagnosed it as a resistance malfunction in the fuel injector system and had me out within a day. Since then, I have taken that car and my one owner '71 Camaro to him several times and have always been completely satisfied with his work and ethical approach to his customers. KO's fone number is:(949)581-1231

I first took my 94 BMW to KO the day after Thanksgiving when I got in the car to leave my mom's house and it wouldn't start. I literally found these guys in the yellow pages. The repair was complicated and it took a week, but these guys talked me through it, gave me rides back and forth to the train station, worked with me on finding a used part within my budget, and didn't charge above the initial estimate even though I know they put a ton of mechanic's hours into the repair. Now I drive all the way from Los Angeles to go to them, because they have seriously earned my trust. I know they are not going to do some superfluous repair just because I don't know anything about cars, and they are very reasonable. I've never trused a mechanic before, so finding them has been a godsend!
