Editorial review from Citysearch 12/6/2012

Karen has been there for me and my family all the way. As a young guy who doesnt know that much about cars (though my friends do) my family has been going to her since THEY were younger. My dad still uses her service to this day, and that is how i met her. She doesnt overcharge, is always friendly, and without pressure tells you exactly what needs to be fixed, and what can wait for another day. Plus if you ever have a question on what something even IS or MEANS, she will explain it in simple english and with pictures (I lOVE PICTURES) so you understand what your buying. She has looked over many of my prospect cars that i was thinking about buying for no charge and told me her honest thoughts on them. (Saved me from buying a lemon) WORTH IT ALREADY! more

Saved me $800 11/5/2011

Karen is an honest business owner. When 6 different mechanics were telling me to change my catalytic converter and they wanted 600-800 for it, or I would not pass the smog test, she took her sweet time to explain how that was misdiagnosed, and helped me get my car going and pass the smog test. There was nothing wrong with the catalytic converter, but one part needed to be adjusted. I drive an old Chevy trucker and everyone wanted to take advantage of me. I will not go anywhere else. more

An Honest Mechanic! 12/14/2010

Karen has not only written a book on auto repair, but she also does monthly classes for women on auto repair as well. She's thorough and honest. Her prices are always fair and I will be a loyal customer for life, as will all of my friends that go to her. more

Honest Work, Honest Prices 4/16/2010

Ive been going to Karen for all my auto needs for over 15 years. Most of my friends go to her too because she is honest, has good prices and really cares about you and your car. One of the best things about going to Karen is she offers loaner cars for $15/day- shes totally got you covered. She also delivers workshops to teach you about your car so you KNOW how to take care of it to prevent needless repairs. If you are short on cash, she gives you the real deal on what you need done to your car now, what repairs will need to be done in the future (but can wait) and gives you honest advice about how much repair your kind of car will need in the future. She has been in the business for over 20 years and really knows her stuff. She is honest, has good prices and good mechanics. I know when I go to Karen that Im going to get the truth, not a sales pitch. Pros: Honest, Good Prices, Loaner Cars, Responsible Owner more

Got Car? Get Karen! 12/10/2009

Got Car? Get Karen! It's just that simple. She will never suggest unnecessary repairs and will actually explain what is wrong and how it gets fixed. I have been taking my 2006 sports car to her since it was new. When there is the possibility of warranty coverage, Karen will tell you to go to the dealer first. She will tell you what maintenance should be performed when. If you want your car to last, have it maintained and repaired by Karen. Got Car/ Get Karen? more

Get Treated Fairly 11/30/2009

Karen at North Hollywood Discount Auto is the most honest and thorough mechanic i have ever been too. She does everything from my routine oil changes to my major under the hood repairs. I had an overheating problem that I took to Karen. She couldn't pin point where the issue was coming from and instead of doing costly repairs that were "maybe" the issue, she told me how to carefully maintain the car and watch to see if it happens again. She is honest, thorough and I would never never never go anywhere else. more

Did terrible work on my car and did not honor the lifetime warranty on the radiator that was replaced. 10/10/2007

I had my radiator replaced at North Hollywood Discount Muffler after a friend recommended them to me. At first I thought I'd found a mechanic I could feel comfortable with. However, in the end this was one of the worst car repair experiences I've ever had. Pros: Absolutely None Cons: Poor workmanship. Does not honor warranties. more

DO NOT TAKE YOUR CAR HERE! 2/7/2007

I took my car to Karen at North Hollywood Discount Mufflers and Brakes for an inspecion for purchase. Cons: Please see review more

Honest Service for an Honest Price 6/19/2006

Not only have I taken my car here many times, but now all my friends do as well (and none of us live in the valley). I once thought my brakes were bad because they were squeking super loud, but they did a inspection and said nothing was wrong and they didn't charge me. They also feature rental cars for when your car is in their shop for as low as $15 a day! PLUS a woman mechanic runs the shop and teaches mechanic classes at LACC!!! more
