  • 5 star ratingIt's hard to find a trustworthy mechanic.  My dad recommended I try this place out.  Carl is THE man when it comes to Toyota/Lexus.  He knows these cars inside and out and can diagnose a problem within minutes.  I have a 2000 Lexus es300.  

    I brought my car in because I had issues starting the car and figured it might be the alternator not charging the battery since i just replaced it at Costco a couple months ago.  I was able to have AAA jump start the car and drove it to have Carl take a look at it.  Turns... read more

    5 star ratingMost important thing. Good Service and Trustworthy

    I like their service and they seem trustworthy. Done and Done.

    It's already a headache going to get your car fixed for something. But, they take the time to explain what you need and why. Carl usually helps me.

    I would recommend calling ahead first, they do get busy.

    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

  • 5 star ratingI took my Chevrolet Tahoe 2005 in for a Fuel Pump replacement and Carl was so reasonable about his labor rates. He was upfront and honest about what other repairs and issues my Truck had.  I'm a female and it's really hard to find a repair shop who won't take advantage.  I'm financial strapped for cash and when Carl told me what repairs are needed and what could wait, I felt as though he really understood the position I am in. I would love to fix it all and have my truck running perfect, but I can only afford to... read more

    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 ratingMy Toyota Camry Hybrid battery died and they were more affordable than the dealer.  They were also honest and timely which is hard to come by these days.  I'd recommend anyone to Genesis Automotive and I will defiantly be going back.

  • 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 ratingCarl, Jeremy, and team were massively helpful when I was visiting my dad and his car needed some attention. They got to it quickly and fixed it that day--Whew!

    Carl has worked for Toyota and Lexus dealers most of his career; it shows. He knows what he's doing.

    5 star ratingWonderful! Bought a Lexus on Craigslist and got scammed with all the repairs it needed. Took it to another mechanic first and they wanted to fix every tiny detail and every big detail for a big price.

    So went on Yelp and found Genesis.

    Genesis is the best. Very well trained and professional, polite, much more reasonable prices! I will only be taking my Lexus there from now on. Gets so much better gas mileage too. THANKS, Genesis

  • 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 ratingIf you have a Toyota and want to deviate from having to pay the crazy fees that the dealer charges for simple repairs, look no further.  My 07 Camry Hybrid had a leaking oil pan and Toyota said it will cost $495 to fix it.  It wasn't that big of a leak, more like a seep but I didn't want to keep driving the car and let that issue worsen.  So instead of bringing it back to Toyota, I shopped around the neighborhood.  Found a guy who would do it for $300 in Route 66 then another guy from Arrow... read more

    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.

    5 star ratingCame here after purchasing a 2002 Toyota 4Runner and wanted to have the car looked at thoroughly by a professional, but was skeptical about finding a good mechanic. I was referred to Genesis by a guy who does the tint on my vehicles and was told Carl is the guy to go to when it comes to Toyota. With that being said I called them up and set up a time for me to drop my truck off.

    The following day after dropping my 4Runner off I called them up to get an update and Carl told me my truck was... read more

    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.
