This place was excellently fast (for smog check) and Rafi was extremely responsive, kind, and astute. I was out in and out in under 30 min, and the yelp voucher worked with ease (Rafi was ready for me at my arrival). So yes, fully recommended!

I was surprised that when I called to get a price it was more than double the dealer !! Ha ha THis is not a fake post at all. If you want to spend your money and don't care how much then this is your place ! I do have a concern about the quality if the price is double the dealer. SO I called and asked how much for a brake light and light inspection (all that is done is you turn the switch or put on the brake and the lights either go on or off. He quoted me $180.00 !!!!!! I asked how long it would take. He said HALF HOUR !!!! What a scam !!! Oh he also said he was the only one around that does them. HAHA. REALLY??? Liar. I got it done in minutes for $70 elsewhere. The dealer quoted me 90. Jezzuz

Review for smog check: After doing a quick verification on the CA Bureau of Automotive Repair to make sure this location has a valid license for STAR test and repair, I took in my little honda for a smog check. There was no line on a Wednesday around 11am. I was directed by a traffic controller/security guard(?) on where to park - I must have looked confused. :) I didn't have to wait, nor was I hassled for additional services, and was in and out of the location in 15-20 minutes. Easy breezy! I also used the $25 for $50 yelp deal, but even without the deal the price for a smog check seemed reasonable ($60 for smog test and certificate). In comparison, the smog test only location in the same lot cost $75 for a smog test.

GREAT PRICE, Efficient Service! If you're looking for a smog check in the Culver City/West LA area, Rafi Automotive is an excellent choice. 1) Quality of service: Excellent. I spoke to the owner over the phone about performing the smog check on my hybrid the same day and he informed me that I could bring the car in any time. When I arrived, I was immediately directed to the place to park my car for the inspection. I waited for about 5 minutes for the inspection to get underway, and once it began it was completed, including electronic submission to DMV, within 15 minutes. 2) Price: I was extremely pleased with the quick service, particularly given the fair price which was $35 when purchasing the Yelp voucher ($25 for voucher + $10 certification fee). As far as planning your trip to Rafi, you should note that there didn't appear to be any seats in the main office, and so one option is to stand and wait as your smog check is performed. Overall, this is not a real problem, particularly given the quick service, and the option to go to the Subway in the same shopping center or just keep yourself amused with your smartphone. If you're stopping by for more extensive service, it's probably advisable to have a ride or plan to visit one of the nearby restaurants.

Took my 2005 VW GTI in because the temperature/coolant light came on. They diagnosed the problem in no time and did an incredible job fixing my car (they replaced the coolant hose, changed my spark plugs, replaced the thermostat, put new brake pads on, and even washed my car). She runs better than ever! I'll definitely be taking my car here again.

Timesaving and moneysaving!! I was looking for a place to do smog check for my car and then I found RAFI on YELP. After reading the reviews I decided to buy 25$ voucher and to go there right away. Rafi was friendly and professional, I got my smog check report in 10 minutes! The store location is also desirable, right in the corner of intersection Sepulveda blvd& Veniece blvd, next to a gas station. Convenient for everything! and YES, smog check price is 35$ with voucher. Highly recommend!

Just took my car here for a smog check. I did a walk-in on a Tuesday lunch hour, and it only took 15 minutes! Bought the $25 for $50 deal, so $35 total for everything--such a good deal. Rafi was very nice and professional. I would definitely go back and would not hesitate to recommend to others!

GOOD PRICE and Quick Service. Just visited Rafi Automotive for my smog check. I would recommend this place. I came in on Saturday at about 12pm. No waiting, no line, no hassle. Rafi was very pleasant and professional. The shop was clean and easy to get to. I purchased the $25 for $50 yelp voucher. No problem using the voucher for a smog check. Total cost with the voucher for test and cert, $35! I would go back and I would recommend to anyone looking for a reliable auto shop in the area.

Took my Mini Cooper in for a broken oil pipe on the turbo which is complicated job on the Mini. Talked to Bob and he knew what he was taking about and quoted me a great price, so I decided to have the breaks and rotors replaced with some of the money I saved. They did a great job and finished it when they said they would at the price they quoted no messing around or BS. I'll would recommend anyone take their car there and get their opinion on what needs doing.
