Success! Thanks for posting your review of Inernational Auto Specialists. You’ve done the world some good today.

peace of mind! no panic! amazing service!

I have been taking my Honda to Auto Specialists for the last 2yrs. Unlike Miller Honda Culver City, a dealership that tried for years to skin me alive, Mike and Lotsi, the super friendly and honest owners of Auto Specialists, are always there to give me the best advice on how to take care of my car and best price available, saving me thousands of dollars over the years. I love their service and recommend them to all ... view more

My Family Saved thousands by Going to these Honest Mechanics

100% competent, honest, and friendly My family began using them approximately 6 years ago and are incredibly thankful we found them. We have saved thousands. A friend recently needed some body work on his car; he got a quote for $2000. I sent him to Lotsi and Mike who agreed to do it for $900. Like I said, my family has saved thousands and never had a problem with these honest mechanics. We love them.

Goodbye Stress, Hello Honest Mechanics

Lotsi and Mike are two of the best people you will ever meet and they also happen to be excellent and knowledgeable mechanics. They will fix what's broken and advise other repairs only if necessary. The price is right, too. God Bless IA.

The Best!

When I was looking for a mechanic I checked the internet and found that all the reviews fot International Auto Specialists were 5 Starred. Needless to say I was a bit sceptical. The job I wanted done was the installation of a side mirror. I got quick and friendly service (thanks Lotsi and Rafael) and the cost was less than 30% of what one of those chain outfits were going to charge me. You can have full confidence in... view more

best mechanic!

International Auto Specialists is the best mechanic in town. Lotsi, my uncle is the best mechanic you can find! Go to IAS to get your car fixed the first time and get it fixed right!

I have been going to International Auto for about 10 years now. Yes, Lotsi and Mike are wonderful mechanics, and terrific human beings. I trust them implicitly. They tell me what to fix, what's not worth fixing, and I know they always give me a fair, or more likely, a great deal. They have an incredibly loyal customer base; in fact they have a wall covered with letters and post cards from people who have moved out of... view more

Great people, great auto mechanics

In life, if you can find an honest and competant auto mechanic, life is better. I've been going to Mike and Lotsi's for over 25 years. In the beginning, they fixed what other mechanics screwed up. If they tell me I need something, I know I need it. They would not try to sell me something I don't need. I don't even bother asking them ""How much will it cost?"" anymore. I know it will be a fair price. Sometimes, it has... view more

Mike and Lotsi - the true honest mechanics!

Mike and Lotsi are the best businessmen you will ever have a chance to deal with, especially as mechanics go. The first time I took my car there I had been informed by another mechanic that I needed my brakes worked on immediately. I didn't trust that mechanic, so I took it to International Auto Specialists on a recommendation from a friend. An hour later Mike called me and asked why my car was there. I thought it an... view more
