Genesis Automotive Service was launched in mid 2013 after nearly a year of planning.

Carl Walker has spent his working life in the automotive repair business working at several different dealerships, pursuing his careers as an automotive technician at shops such as Toyota, Lexus, Mercedes, and independent vehicle service and repair shops where he gained experience working on a variety of vehicles.

Carl’s dream was to open his own shop and began planning while working at Longo Lexus in El Monte.

While talking to a friend one day, they both realized that they had the same dream of opening their own auto shop. It was then that they decided the timing was right to make it happen.

Carls original partner moved on in early 2016.

They opened their shop in Covina which is centrally located in the San Gabriel Valley near Duarte, Azusa, Glendora, San Dimas, West Covina, La Verne, El Monte and neighboring cities.

Our goal is to establish long-term relationships in the community by using our many years of training and experience to provide our guests with honest, reliable, timely and ultimately the best car service possible.

We are an honest shop with fair prices.

  • 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 ratingGenesis Automotive is fantastic. The owner of the business, Carl, worked at Lexus and Toyota dealers for two decades, so I receive the same level of service here as I do at the Lexus dealer, except I can afford to eat now.

    I have a 2006 Lexus RX400

    Carl and his team are skilled, honest, and organized. I am female, young, and clueless about cars. I could be easily taken advantage of but Carl is always honest and works with me to find affordable solutions for when problems arise. I love the whole team here.

    5 star ratingI've never had a mechanic explain so much and really involve me in the diagnosis like Carl did I really appreciate feeling involved I feel like he did every thing he could to get the price down as well. Over all it's a great experience and I'm happy to now have a great mechanic

  • 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.

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

  • 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 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 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 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.

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. Finally, who can beat the oil change prices for $25 for synthetic blend on my... read more
