Just another quick and positive update. Had a CEL in my dash, needed a diagnostic. Called Rafi, he saw me promptly half an hour later, plugged the scanner, gave me the readings, reset it - all free of charge. Turns out it was a one-time misfire. I will be glad to be back if it happens again.

After taking our X5 and convertible 330ci to dealer for airbag recalls they always give $$$$$ worth if recommended repairs. I can count on Rafi and is team to give me the real story in what I need to do and ALWAYS works with us. Even steam cleaned my engine gratis when I was ready to sell one of my BMWs.

I hear you...the horror stories of taking your vehicle into an "honest" and "reliable" service repair shop. Sure, I was impressed by Rafi Autotech's amazing 5 star reviews, but I wasn't sure I would believe the hype until I decided to try them out for myself. I dropped off (via tow) my 2005 Ford Escape Hybrid into the loving arms of Autotech on a weekday afternoon. I was personally greeted by Rafi who asked me a series of questions about the vehicle (new battery, how many miles, do you have a back up key, etc) and then told me that the diagnostic was $150 to see what the trouble was. He told me not to worry and that his certified trained team would take care of it. At the end of the day, Kevin called me to explain what the problem was. Turns out that it was a bad hybrid battery connection and that it had been fixed, the key logs restarted and the vehicle was working fine. Their shop was closing within an hour and I explained that I wasn't able to come by until the following morning, in which they replied, "no problem. The vehicle will be safe until you come by in the morning." I arrived the following morning and Kevin again explained what was repaired and mentioned that my 2005 Ford Escape (with only 36K miles) was in great shape. The total was $450 all in for the service and that initial $150 diagnostic fee was waived since I had the service handled by their team. I was even able to print out an online coupon from their site for an additional $30 in savings. The entire process was smooth, professional and one of the best experiences I have had when an auto repair shop. They even washed my Escape! I can't recommend Rafi enough and will definitely bring in my 2017 BMW 320i next time it needs repair. Rafi is honest, straightforward, reliable, and his prices are very fair. The reviews of all the other Yelpers are legit. Rafi and his team are the best!

Rafi and Kevin were extremely helpful and professional. They inspected a used car for me and are thorough and honest. I’m very excited to do business here! Thanks again.

We have been using Rafi Autotech for 5+ years for my husband's Audi. Service is always excellent, professional and courteous. More importantly, they are honest. When his car needed a major repair, they first went above and beyond to contact the dealership to see about their coverage before proceeding with making any repairs. If you need a trustworthy, reliable place for your vehicle, this is the place to go.

Originally was looking to go to a different smog place in the same complex but that place decided to close 2 hours early for some reason so thankfully a friendly face from Rafi Autotech flagged us down and told us they do star certified smog checks there too! They gave us a great price on the smog check and were done super fast (within 15 min). Everyone was following proper COVID-19 protocols with masks and social distancing which I was impressed with too. Definitely will be coming back in the future for any more smog checks and possibly servicing too :)

Got my smog super quick and easy, Marlon and Rafi were super sweet and knowledgeable on Volkswagens !! Only people I'm getting a smog with from here on out ! Thanks guys !!

I was looking for a CAP approved smog repair. So I cross referenced with yelp. I requested a quote and Rafi responded immediately with a great quote! $150 copay!!! I dropped my car off for 2 days and it passed smog. I received my tags a week ago!! They were very nice and knowledgeable! I approve!

I had my car serviced by Roni and I thank him for making this experience a memorable one. He was very nice, he educated me about the different aspects of maintenance a car like mine needs to have, and what is not mandatory and by that saved me a lot of money. It was very easy to plan my day around the service because his office communicated so we'll so I didn't have to change my schedule. The car runs great Definitely use again and recommend my friends and family.

Have been bringing my BMW for regular maintenance to Rafi Auto Tech for the last few years ever since my BMW maintenance plan expired. Prices are comparable or below other mechanics (yep, I shopped around) and their work is always top notch. I like that they can usually diagnose and then deliver quickly - often same day. I also appreciate the little things they do like having my engine washed after repairs or offering a ride home if needed. They also run smog certification so it's a one-stop shop saving me time from running around. If you're looking for a reliable and trustworthy BMW (or Mini) mechanic, give Rafi Auto a try. Thanks Roni & Bob!
