What Our Clients Say

Jonnathon C.

Starko Auto Services (and particularly Raffi, the owner) has done me right repeatedly. Their work on my 1985 classic Mercedes 300TD has been excellent. They’ve done electrical,a tough radiator replacement, and even a little vacuum system work for me and all of it was excellent! When I have needed to be careful what I spend Raffi has suggested the best and cheapest way to go.

Their work has been complete and I have had no problems. and his prices are Very Fair! A Good Mechanic! At a good rate! Yikes! Thank You Raffi!

I have been getting my cars serviced by Starko Auto for over 10 years and would recommend them  to anyone who wants a great trustworthy mechanic to work on your car. The owner Raffi is the best person I know to go to for friendly advice on all kinds of cars but especiallywhen it comes  M-Benz and BMW.

I guarantee you will not regret going to Starko for all your car repairs.SFV best!!!!

Great service! I had a potential buyer for my Mercedes and since he knew Raffi, the buyer wanted Raffi to check out the car.
Raffi was able to recommend a $2.00 part that was missing in the throttle linkage.
I put it on and the throttle response was very noticeable on the freeway.

For Mercedes owners and leasers living in east San Fernando Valley I would recommend this shop located in old historic San Fernando.

Raffi is an excellent mechanic. He is honest and trustworthy. I highly recommend his shop to anyone needing work on their European car. Wouldn’t take my Mercedes anywhere else.

This place is great! I originally got an estimate from Keyes Mercedes which was almost double the price that Raffi was able to do it for. Keyes said that I also needed to replace my sway bar which seemed a little odd to me since its rare that a metal bar would go bad. I mentioned it to Raffi and he confirmed that it wasn’t the sway bar but the bushing that were showing signs of ware. He recommended that I wait to replace them as it wasn’t necessary to replace them now. Raffi was very honest and explained everything in detail.

I’ve done a lot of the work on my other cars myself, but because my busy schedule and the car being a Mercedes, I decided to have it done by a professional. Boy am I glad I found Starko. Even though I showed up late in the afternoon without an appointment, Raffi was still able to get the job done in a swift time frame. He gave me a ride home and said he would pick up the parts right away and got the job done in the time frame he quoted to me. Raffi is a true professional and I feel 100% confident with my car in his shop. He even gave me a free t-shirt!!

Simply put, Raffi is the best! I have a cherry 1990 BMW 735i and I only bring it to Starko. Raffi always takes care of the issue quickly and at a great price. I’ve recommended him to several friends and they are equally as pleased.

Literally, as the rating says – as good as it gets!  You can’t ask for more.  Honesty.  Pride in workmanship.  Communication.  Being a woman, you are often treated like an idiot, but NOT HERE.  Respect and love for the vehicle!  Honestly, take it from someone who has had to deal with plenty of mechanics, don’t waste you time, call Rafi at Starko.

You are in the best hands you could hope to be in.
