If a car has failed a smog check at another shop and the emission repairs have been made at KO American, I feel confident that the car will pass the re-test. I believe KO American makes the correct repairs.”

Owner, Car Test Only
We just wanted to express our thanks and appreciation for the many years of outstanding service we have always received from KO Automotive. Tony and his crew have been our go-to mechanics for over 12 years. All of our extended family has also come to depend on KO for their knowledge and expertise in every area of auto maintenance and repair. You have been there for us through the years with our old cars with over 125,000 miles, and our newer cars with all the new technology that is now in the new cars coming out of the USA and abroad.  The few times we have had to return for a “fix-it” visit you have always responded immediately and efficiently to take care of the problem. Thanks for taking such good care of us, our children and our grandchildren.

I am the owner of an older model Toyota Tercel.   The car would not pass the smog inspection.  We went so far as having the engine rebuilt at a cost of around $1600.00 only to have the emission reading get worse.  I finally took my car to Tony at KO.  He was able to find a cracked wire which he replaced for around $250.00.  I could  have saved a lot time and money by taking my car to him first.  I know now.

My 1999 Grand Am failed its smog check at a test only station. After taking my car to two other mechanics and spending several hundred dollars in diagnostics fees with NO clear answer I brought my car to K.O. Tony was finally able to pinpoint my emissions problem, replace the part and ready the car for the re-test. Thanks to them my registration was on time at the DMV.

Tony and his team at KO Automotive are an oasis of skill, conscientiousness, integrity and helpfulness.  I have been entrusting my cars to them for many years and would not take them anywhere else.

 I am a senior living is a senior community.  Many auto repair shops advertise discounts to seniors. Not true!  I had a car, under warranty, returned to the dealer for repair.  Two months later, same problem.  Went to Tony, he advised me the problem had NOT been addressed.  Tony suggested another dealer. Information from Tony in hand I went to the new dealer and my warranty had expired but the dealership agreed with Tony.  KO Automotive saved me $700.00.  Thank you KO Automotive, courtesy and honesty, the BEST.

I,ve had an auto-mechanic phobia for many years, so much that I went an took an auto- mechanic course myself, in my younger years. Few years ago I just walked into KO Automotive for a minor repair and have been hooked on them ever since. In many case I have witnessed experience, knowledge, honesty and reasonable rates from the staff, Tony and Gabriel in particular.

I had extensive smog emissions work on my 14 year old with 129,700 miles, done by Tony and Gabriel. What Professionals. I was kept advised of the status of the repairs or any problems they found, they performed the work promptly and can recommend them with no hesitation.

Tony is an expert in all aspects of automobile repair and has the most valuable asset any human can have: 100% honesty!
