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!

Found this auto shop by pure coincidence and what a blessing that was ! Les charged me less than half of what most of other garage were charging me for a brake job. He is honest, hard working and just a wonderful human being in general ! Was totally worth the 30 minutes drive I did. Les and his team are absolutely wonderful ! Will be back for future car repairs

It’s best to be 100 % honest and it’s also easier than being untruthful. Too much effort. Your business was very much appreciated.

Changed tires on a Volkswagen Tiguan and brakes he didn’t do a weel alignment so it wore out the front tires on the inside tread and didn’t change the back brakes because there electronic parking brake so he decided to lie a charge me for all new brakes I took it to Volkswagen and they confirmed that the back brakes are original he charged me $1800 for work that wasn’t even done
Tobie SImpson
Google Review

Reply from Les: Ladies and gentlemen of the reading public.
I was very distraught at the accusation so I got dressed on my Sunday day off and went to the shop to fire up the computer to print off the invoice. Regretfully, Tobie’s claim is unjustified as he was indeed only charged for what he approved to have repaired, nothing more is on the invoice and NO, rear brakes were NOT DONE due to scanner software unable to retract the rear parking brake system. These repairs were completed on
January 11, 2020. I’m definitely not the person that Tobie has expressed I am and have reached out to him via phone call and text message.
Hi Tobie thanks for letting me know of your concerns. When I get back to the shop on Monday I will bring up your invoice to scrutinize this information. Changing tires never includes a wheel alignment unless we see previous wear and recommend it or the client requests it.
As for the claim of not doing any work and being charged for it will be looked into but I can assure you that
“I WOULD NOT CHARGE A PENNY FOR ANYTHING NOT DONE” but in the interest of full investigation, I will be searching for your invoice first thing Monday morning. Please provide the Vin # for the vehicle as all repairs at my shop document the vin #. My goal is complete client satisfaction and in all fairness, I wished you would have stopped by for a person to person discussion.
Thanks, I will be in touch.
PS: I would rather lose the sale of “any invoice amount” than taking someone’s hard earned money.

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!

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.

***** 5 out of 5 Stars on Google
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.

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.

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!!

I have been going to see Les and his team for a few years now for repair on the assortment of beater cars I've had. Les has always been honest and his prices, always fair. This shop won't rip you off, they'll go above and beyond every time to make sure your car is safe to drive. Whether big repairs or your regular maintenance, Les is your go to for top notch car service! His honesty and great customer service will bring me back again and again. Though usually the cars I bring in are more of a headache than your average vehicle, Les is always patient with me and understanding of circumstance, though i wouldn't blame them for cussing my car out when I leave!

My girlfriend suggested Les Dobos. I was looking for someone to help me with my Subaru A lot of places wont even touch a Subaru, except a dealership which is sky-rocket expensive! When I brought my precious car into Les, he was most anxious to help me. He guided me thru his process of what needed to be fixed, even texting me pictures of my problem. Now my car runs better than it has in years! They were very honest with the timeline to fix & was not expensive which I found refreshing! Les Dobos & team are my new best (car) friends!

Had a tire blow right as the first snow hit, phoned many places that were all very busy changing tires (which is completely understandable haha). Phoned Los Dobos who said that they were booked fully but would do their best to get my rubber on the rim if they had a chance to. They went above and beyond to squeeze me in and got my tire on the rim. When I went to pick up my tire they went the extra mile AGAIN and was able to put my tire on the car as well. They are very decently priced and very friendly people. I will most definitely be back. Thank you so much to the whole crew!

Just moved to Calgary and was looking for a mechanic to service my van. Can’t tell you how lucky I was to discover Les and his team of professionals. If you’re looking for a professional, friendly and very honest mechanic ( something not easily found these days) I would look no further than Les Dobos for your car and van repairs. Highly recommended, and worthy of 6 stars if that was an option.
