  • 5 star ratingIf you need a trustworthy mechanic, look no further, Carl is your guy. I've taken my Tacoma to Genesis for years and wouldn't go anywhere else. If you're looking to support a small business that cares about its customers and getting the job done right, you've come to the right place. They offer a simple oil change to a major repair and everything in between. Always great customer service, friendly staff and fair prices. I can't say enough good things. Thanks for taking such good care of my truck!

    5 star ratingHad a "no start" issue with my 99 miata

    Also the nigh time dash running light and taillight wouldn't work.

    I've called several shops as well as "miata specialists" around the area, all the other shops charge a ridiculous amount, for ex: another shop quoted me

    175.00 to diagnose dash and tailight issue, 275.00 for the no start issue. 450.00 and that's not even fixing the problem, that's just "diagnosing"

    I'm not a pro mechanic but I do know how to work on my car, I just never have time nowadays so finding a good dependable mechanic is tough.

    I took my car here. Friendliest... read more

  • 5 star ratingI come to this shop for everything i need on my vehicles. Been coming here for a few years and trust them alot. They will let you know whats wrong give you options and not try to sell you stuff you do not need. This shop is the best. I have come for silly things like oil changes and tire rotation to more serious stuff. They can do it all. Great staff too.

    5 star ratingI was referred to the mechanic Carl and went and had an oil change done. I have to say, these guys are really good and know what they are doing. They rotated my tires and Carl found a two nails that had punctured my tires (but didn't go all the way through). They checked multiple other areas too and were verify extensive. I was referred here from two different friends that touted their honesty and service, now that I have been there I have to say I agree!

    5 star ratingMy Toyota 4 Runner needed some serious attention at 260,000 miles and I didn't want to take it to the Toyota dealer which I have done numerous times. A friend told me about Genesis and that Glenn and ..the other guy..can't remember his name..but that they specialized in Toyota, Scion, and Lexus. Took his advice and was real happy. These guys know their stuff and were willing to take the time to discuss and explain what was wrong and what needed to be done. Real nice guys. After dropping my car off I knew I could trust them. They did... read more

    5 star ratingI have a 2001 Volkswagen Jetta that I want to keep running until it dies. I love my car. I brought it to Genesis based on a referral from a family member because I don't have a mechanic that I like. They were super helpful! The garage was clean, the technicians were friendly and talked to me like a person, not just a girl! They fixed my car up, they did not try to sell me a ton of extra stuff.   I've gone back three times since then for various maintenance. They are consistent. I'm so relieved to find... read more

    5 star ratingHonest mechanics? Yes!! Carl, the owner, actually shows you the used or damaged parts that were in your car. He always carefully explains their function and why they needed to replace them. Also, they never push for any extra services. I'm never going anywhere else... Genesis is an outstanding auto service shop!!

  • 5 star ratingEverybody needs a mechanic like Carl or Glenn.  

    They are honest, easy to talk to, hard working and most of all - THEY ARE ASE CERTIFIED MASTER MECHANICS and they are the ONLY person who will touch your car. As opposed to big shops or dealership that have ONE master mechanic and a bunch of young guys who will be the ones actually doing work on your car.

    Try these guys out - you won't go to anybody else.

    5 star ratingI took my 2010 Jetta to Genesis. Trusting the reviews from others on yelp. Well, I'm so glad I did! Glenn and Carl were able to diagnose the electrical issue with my car and fix it promptly. You can certainly trust these gentlemen! They are honest and reasonable! Thank you! My car is running great.

    5 star ratingTook my car in. Carl diagnosed the issue with the car rite away gave me the estimate to replace a water pump in my 2008 scion. Let me know rite away other places will be more. They were. Picked up my car and payed a little under the estimate.  Pleasantly surprised, honesty is hard to come by in this field but that's what you get here. Highly recommend this place. Any future problems I know where to bring my car.

    5 star ratingWas recommended by a friend to check out Genesis Automotive when we got an outrageous quote from the dealership for a water pump replacement.  Not only did they replace the water pump but they replaced some belts and seals that the dealership hadn't even mentioned.  It was all done for about half of what the dealer quoted.  Thank you Carl and Glenn!!  I found my forever mechanics 😉

  • 5 star ratingI was referred to Carl and Glenn by my son.  Totally worth the drive into Covina.  

    I needed major work done on my Toyota 4Runner @ almost 200k miles.   These men went over and above what I expected from an automotive service.   They repaired my 4Runner at a much lower cost than the dealership quoted me.  They were courteous,  personable and upfront.  After working with them,  I believe them to be honest and trustworthy.  They explained what I was going to be facing once the motor was taken apart.   I was especially pleased,  knowing they would personally... read more

I would recommend Genesis Automotive to anyone looking for trustworthy mechanic. The best part is Carl tells you like it is and even helps you with things that aren't part of the description. For example, my new headlights I installed were lower than usual and Carl spent time to adjust them and make sure that I was safe on my trip to Vegas.
