K&S auto is the BEST. Flexible scheduling and great repairs. As neighbors, he’s walked over to check out our truck that wouldn’t start before having to get it towed. Friendly, knowledgeable and honest.

I’ve been going here for the last 4 years with a great experience every time. The best part is Simon isn’t going to give you the run around. For example the first time I came to him my steering wheel would make a loud noise when it would turn. I called around to several different business which all told me it most likely was the power steering. To replace the power steering would cost several hundred dollars. Then I called Simon told him the same thing. His response was a belt needed to be replaced and would cost less then $50. He had it done that day and it took almost no time. Simon knows what he is doing and will do it right the first time.

Simon Kim is a great mechanic, and a truly honest guy. He never pushes unneeded repairs, and offers good advice when asked. If you are looking for a reliable mechanic, he’s your guy.

I went to K&S after a dealer denied a warranty claim. Simon did everything in his power to keep me from spending money. He is honest, highly skilled and knowledgeable. I now have a new engine courtesy of the manufacturer.

He moved to Portland with his family in 1994 for the fresh air and laid back atmosphere, and has been your friendly neighborhood mechanic ever since.
