About Us

Looking for genuinely honest and professional auto repair? Then Kobar’s Auto Service is your one-stop shop. Family owned and operated since 2000, this Gilbert business delivers professional auto and truck diagnostics, repairs and maintenance.

Not only is this a family-run business but owners, and brothers, Gene and John Kobar, are Gilbert residents as well. With the combined experience of 50 years in auto repair, the Kobars know the pings from the grinds. They will make certain your car or truck is purring like a kitten.

Kobar’s prides itself on providing a clean, efficient shop with friendly staff. They can service everything from your little commuter to your pickup truck. All staff are ASE certified technicians. This is a full service auto repair shop so if your oil needs changing, your check engine light has come on or your brakes need new pads, Kobar’s has you covered.

Kobar’s also performs factory-scheduled maintenance for a lot less than most area dealers.

Having qualified master technicians is key, especially in auto repair. Being honest, courteous and truthful with our customers is what keeps bringing them back.

Gene is a proud Sun Devil, having attended ASU on a baseball scholarship. John attended Wichita State on basketball scholarship. After graduation both cut their teeth in the auto industry at Goodyear. Several years of working for a corporation left the brothers ready to strike it out on their own and they decided to open Kobar’s.

Honest, high quality service is a cornerstone to how Kobar’s does service and its customers come back time and again for that great service and the competitive prices.

When we first opened, customers would come in with their small children and babies, now these same children are driving and bringing their own vehicles into us for repairs. It’s pretty remarkable to watch them grow and receiving the repeat business time and time again from generations of families. Everyday we feel so blessed and hope to pass that blessing onto our customers anyway we can!
