Alex is great. Honest and does what he says. Had an old Mercedes that didn't pass. He was able to repair it and I got it registered again. Thanks Alex!

I have been very impressed with Alex and his staff's excellent customer service, quality work repair and very reasonable prices. Recently, Cox Auto Service repaired my car and replaced a bumper. My car looks and runs like new. The Honda dealer had quoted me a price more than double of what I ended up paying at Cox Auto Service. So I saved a large amount of $ with Cox Auto Service and received prompt service. I highly recommend Cox Auto Service for auto service/repairs and smog services. Their staff is friendly, informative and trustworthy. Thank you Alex!

Talk about fast service, I brought my laptop with me thinking it might be a little while, but I barely connected to Wi-Fi and saved a document before being told my smog check was complete. The information was with the DMV by the time I got home so I renewed my registration right away and will have my tags soon. It was a seamless process thanks to Cox Auto Service.
