You Don't Have to Take Our Word for It!

Here's what some of our satisfied customers have to say about Cox Auto Service:


Service is always completed in a timely manner and at a reasonable price.

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.


Great service! They don't do what doesn't need to be done, even if you thought that's what you "needed"! I appreciate they don't waste my money!


Good place, good auto service, is my favorite place. I recommend for all.


Can't figure it out? Ask Bob!


Alex and Bob are great folks. Glad to find a good mechanic to keep my Tacoma running!!


Affordable prices, great reputation and excellent customer service.

When I came into town my Lexus ES350 was having major transmission issues, and it was on the verge of a complete blow out. I didn't know any local mechanics, so I did a google search for local area mechanics, and I came across Cox Auto. Alex and Bob treated me with the utmost respect, and they were very honest about the charges to fix the transmission issue. Thanks to the guys at Cox Auto, I was able to get a fair deal on a new transmission installation on my ES350. This place is great and honest, and they always take care of their customers' needs. I will definitely be back for any of my service needs!


I took my 3 Series for repair to this location. They did an excellent job. very high quality work with original factory parts but almost half of what BMW dealer wanted to charge me. Thank you guys for the awesome job. Highly recommended. A+++++


I have been taking my cars to Alex for all major and minor issues for over 6 years now. Excellent service, honest quotes, efficient and timely workmanship. I am very pleased with the way they explain exactly what is wrong and what needs to be done. I go out of my way to recommend these guys to anyone that needs their car serviced.

I have been doing business with Cox Auto Services for a long time and they're trustworthy. I had a bad throttle sensor and needed it to be repaired. Instead of charging me $1800 plus tax, they informed me to take my car back to the dealership to have it fixed for free. I was willing to pay to have my car repaired but they saved me hundreds of dollars.

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!


Best in the west!! Every visit I make, I leave amazed! They are the most honest, hard working auto mechanics you will find! I go to them for anything I need done. They are also more than fair when it comes down cost. Alex will make you feel like family, and his crew will make sure your car treats you right.


Good service, good people, professional!


Had a great experience here, Alex is a great guy that gives you the best price every time! The whole staff is friendly and helpful. Will definitely go there next time I need auto work.

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!


Great service. This shop does not rip you off and will take your car in without an appointment even for bigger services. They call you before they preform service and tell you exactly how much they are going to charge, before they do the work. Great people and great service.

Bob really took care of me! I thought I was lost. I had planned an entire trip for some soul searching in the mountains. I stopped by the grocery store in the morning to pick up some last minute essentials and when I returned to my car.. nothing! It wouldn't start, crank.. no juice.. nothing! I walked over to Firestone and they said I had to wait 3 days for a fusible link and they couldn't help me otherwise until then. I am stuck! I ended up building my own fusible link, because I am smart like that, but it still didn't start. I called Bob at Cox Auto Repair. He said come on over, gave me a price for diagnostic, got it started in 15 minutes, and charged me way less than what he originally quoted for the diagnostic! Bob is the man and his crew are the coolest guys ever. Thank you Bob!


I cant say enough about them, My Dad sent me there, I'm 19 so I'm just glad I listened know how it is at 19 years old..Thanks dad.... Cox is AWESOME!!! Thanks Alex for not just helping me but my Dad as well!!My dads health isn't good thank you for Helping Him!!!! He just brought him in a car that was all he could afford , I never seen my dad cry but Alex helped him. Thank you for not just being the best mechanic but a great human being!!


I appreciate the honest and hard work these guys put in. Thank you very much for taking the time to fix my car. Told my wife about this shop and she took her car there and got the same great assistance. If you you got issues with your car bring it here they will do you right!


Alex and his team helped figure out what was going on with my car. I had a strange leak coming from under the seat. They tested out everything it could be, found the issues, and went above-and-beyond what I expected. Alex also brought me back to take a look at my car to make sure I understood what was going on. I asked another car repair shop, and they were so busy I wouldn't have been able to get in until next week, and they quoted about $150 more than I paid at Cox Auto Service. I highly recommend them, top notch service!

I got an estimate for my 2005 Passat from the Volkswagen dealership for my transmission and it was too expensive. So I called around town to save money. Cox Auto Service did the same job for less than Half the price. They are very Affordable and Fast. I recommend all my family and friends to bring their cars here. absolutely a life saver. Thank you Alex!


The only place I ever take my car! I've been bringing my car here for over 10 years!!!!
