I always thought that ""honest auto mechanic"" was something of an oxymoron until I met Kami. He not only does not try to cheat you on car repairs, but he bends over backwards to try to get you a great price and excellent service. He's just an incredibly nice, decent guy. His car shop is easy to overlook because it's on a street with almost no traffic, and I agree that parking can be difficult, but it's well worth it for Kami's prices and good character. His waiting room is also very nice and his employees all seem friendly and competent. I was referred to Kami through a colleague at UCLA (who also thinks Kami is awesome) and over the past few years, my fiance and I have used Kami for four different cars (an old Ford Taurus, a Ford Aspire and most recently a 2005 Prius and a RAV4). He's done a terrific job on all of them. I can't recommend this guy enough.
Pros: fantastic prices, extremely honest, quick service
Cons: parking can be difficult
