What our customers are saying?

When looking for an auto shop, the first thing you're I'm thinking is trust. At Les Dobos Auto Centre you not only get trust...you also get personality, sincerity and ease in communication. His shop has strong troubleshooting skills and gives recommendations specific to the age and mileage of the vehicle. Les is a seasoned pro and your car is in good hands with him.

Les Dobos Auto Center is a fully licensed breath of fresh air in an industry full of uncertainties. Les was in constant communication and at no point was I left out of the decision making process regarding current repairs, future potential issues, costs, and completion timelines. The auto center business operates on the fundamental values of honesty, trust and customer satisfaction. Les and his team delivers in a way of unmatched professionalism that can be challenging to find in our modern society. I would highly recommend them to anyone in need of auto repair or maintenance, and will be a returning customer should the future need arise.

Today was my second visit to Les Dobos Automotive. Once again I left his shop with wallet intact and no up selling. Being on a very restrictive budget and a meagre fixed income, Les and his staff were able to repair my older model car so that I could continue on my way far safer than when I arrived. Friendly, honest and knowledgeable, Les Dobos Automotive is the only shop I will attend for all my auto repairs and maintenance. Extremely helpful and honest.

I wanted to leave a recommendation for this shop after my recent experience. I had a broken windshield washer hose (never a good idea in Calgary) and since the car is European it was going to be a little more than a simple fix. Les and his people took about ½ an hour to find an innovative and effective solution for a problem wherein the original part is no longer available. It’s great to find that kind of “get it done” thinking in an industry that seems to have become, “let’s just throw it away and get a new one” oriented. During the same visit Les took the time to analyze and repair a frustrating little problem that we had been having with our power windows. In this day and age of corporate everything it’s nice to know that places like Les’ still exist. 5 Star recommend from me.

Les Dobos Auto is amazing; every time they are professional and go out of their way to make sure all your needs are met. I am immunocompromised and they do contactless service, wear gloves and wipe everything down. When there was an issue with a part they replaced it immediately and for free. Highly recommend them for your vehicle service.

We have a very old car and that's the main reason why my husband and I are very hesitant to take our car to any autoshop because we're pretty sure our car screams "cash cow" all over it. So I had to look for an autoshop with a good review and I found Les' shop. I was pretty impressed with the 5 star review they have. The reviews aren't fake! This is the best shop really! Les won't offer anything that doesn't really "need" fixing just to get more bucks out of you. He is the most honest business person I've met. He really values his customers and you won't have to worry about anything at all. Thank you for taking care of our Ferdy Les Dobos Monterey Park Auto Centre Team!

I was having trouble with my car and wasn't sure what the problem was. I took into the Les Dobos Auto Centre and they managed to troubleshoot the problem in no time at all. I'd definitely use them again in the future.

Had a great feeling about Les as soon as I met him. He considered the age and mileage of my truck and did not push for unnecessary repairs. He kept me posted and did his best to keep the charges for repairs low. My truck needed quite a bit of work and now runs and feels awesome. I will not go anywhere else. The search for a trustworthy shop is over. I will be recommending his shop to everyone.
Thanks Les!

Reply from Les: Hello Navjot, my apologies for the delay in getting a response to you in regards to the review. I wasn’t aware I was even able to do it!! Guess that’s why vehicles and great customer service are my strengths and not computers but, you can learn something new every single day of your life. Cheers

Les is a very professional business owner, honest and a great guy to deal with. As a contractor (MV Painting Inc) when things are busy I don't have much time available to wait for my van to be back in the roads, they are fast. His staff is well trained and they don't over sell you things that you have no need for. Competitive prices and reliable.
Victor Mansilla

Reply from Les:  And you Victor are a very nice person to say so. I enjoy being professional as it makes it so much easier for clients to feel more comfortable at my establishment. We will always try to accommodate as best as we can and with great reviews like yours, it’s easy to keep doing what we are doing. 

Came in for an inspection, super easy to deal with, did not try to upsell or get a quick buck, seems honest and easy to deal with.
James Stuart-Smith

Reply from Les: Thank you James, that’s my style. No one should feel overwhelmed. The “Golden rule” dominates my thinking. 

My friend and I have both taken our vehicles to Les and have been very impressed with the service. I really appreciated his honesty with regards to the work being done. We were always in the loop. We would highly recommend going to Les for all your service needs. We will continue to go there in the future.

Les and his staff were really great to deal with, they quickly identified the issue with our Subaru, provided quotes and were more than happy to answer all of our questions. I will trust them 100% with any of our vehicles in the future.

There is a reason why this business has 5 star reviews. Les is a literal angel. He not only comes up front to deal with customers face to face and answers the phone calls that come in, he also communicates all through the work with pictures and videos, texts and phone calls. He’s honest, friendly, doesn’t do any work you don’t need and he’s very reasonably priced. Stop looking for a mechanic and go see Les. I promise it’s worth it. I still have much more work on my worthless car that turned out to be a bad deal for me in the end, but Les was so transparent about everything he’s found. He could be banking some serious bank off me if he really wanted but he gives honest recommendations and he’s already looking for the parts before you even reply so he can have answers ASAP. Seriously greatest service I’ve ever received from a mechanic. He’s running his business right and creating customers FOR LIFE instead of squeezing every penny out of one job. Like I said, he’s an angel. Stop wasting your time looking for a good mechanic because you already found one. Thanks, Les! I appreciate you.

Reply from Les: Hi Mallory, many thanks for your kind words. I really enjoy being the type of service provider you and other clients describe. Being honest and upfront with you is the key to have you return and hopefully recommending others to come see me for I can never help another without helping myself.
All the best.

Reply from Les: Hi Levi, always appreciate the 5 stars. Thanks

I am grateful to have found Les and his team. After many years of dealing with another mechanic and many disappointments I had enough and took a chance on Les. His reviews were excellent so I thought I would write one myself. I like the feeling of the small town mechanic shop. Les does greet you at the desk, answers any questions, calls when your vehicle is ready and I feel that I can trust him already. Although I will miss the shuttle service at the other mechanic shop, I am looking to forward to building a new relationship with Les Dobos for many years to come.

We have had all 3 of our vehicles serviced at Les Dodos Monterey Park auto centre, from maintenance to major repairs. I am so pleased with Les and his staff. Les got our vehicle in when we had an emergency and just went above and beyond working with us to get the vehicle repaired. I am so grateful to have a mechanic close to my neighbourhood who is reliable and trustworthy. We will be bringing our vehicles back to this business.

Best shop in the city. Les and his people rock. I take my car here exclusively as they know what they're doing and will never rip you off. Showed up one afternoon with some help changing my air filter. Les took 5 minutes out of his day to replace it for me. No charge!! If you want great, friendly service, Les Dobos Auto is my shop of choice; make it yours as well!

I am so thankful to have found Les Dobos Auto Center. Les and his staff are friendly and professional with clients and are knowledgeable, competent mechanics when it comes to diagnosing automotive problems. They went above and beyond keeping me informed every step of the way with the progress on my Ford Escape and I was pleasantly surprised with their fair pricing. I would highly recommend their automotive repair services.

Les is honestly the best and most honest auto repair shop I've been to and that says a lot as I've been to many. For all the people who feel a lot of apprehension when it comes to car repairs, bring your car over to Les and take comfort in knowing that you get quoted the right amount and with the job done perfectly.
