KOK Oil was initially recommended to me by a colleague about ten years ago. I've been taking my car there ever since. The owner, Kevin, is a really good guy. I can't emphasize this enough. He's very honest, competent, thorough, down to earth, and has a lot of integrity. He explains everything in understandable terms -- i.e. doesn't talk down or use jargon. I'm a single woman who 's had some bad experiences with mechanics in the past. But not since finding Kevin / KOK. He's also a nice person -- a dad who coaches his son's sports team. KOK is right across from the Alameda lite rail stop. I leave my car there and catch the lite rail to work. I believe it's open from 7AM-2PM. Drop your call off early. I usually call him the day before to let him know what I'm bringing it in for.
Pros: Excellent and efficient service
