Integrity is how we run our business

Meet the Founders

Founder Irving Calderon has spent many long years perfecting his craft. His quality workmanship, attention to detail and work ethic are impeccable. 

Irving and his wife Cindy believe in serving people with integrity and excellence. When they are not at the shop, they are enjoying life with their wonderful children or helping out at community events.

Irving earned a degree in Automotive Technology a Technological Institute of Ciudad Juarez Mexico. He was working as a mechanic for over 15 years now, both as a manager and technician. He enjoyed his career path until this point, but his primary concern was that he was seeing too many customers being overcharged. This was one of the reasons he started KAR to make sure that he is the one giving out fair prices, fair assessments, and excellent service.

If we find something wrong with your car we will show you the problem before we even fix it. That way we can both be confident that your car is in good hands. Irving with His Wife Cindy Calderon opened in Garden Grove in 2015, after just six weeks of operations, they hired a technician.

We are trained and equipped to work on all makes and models of domestic, Asian and European vehicles, and we perform all areas of maintenance and repairs.

Bring your car in today, we will complete a detailed inspection and personally show you what is wrong with your car. That’s right, we will personally point out exactly what we find and let you know the best way to address the concern.

Irving is the best mechanic ever!! I used to have many different mechanics cause I drive a lot. He is honest, quick, and knowledgeable about cars. He has the best prices and use the best quality. Its good to schedule an appointment since he can get busy. I had my oil change (synthetic), fuel injections clean, transmission flush, brakes (ventilated rotors) with ceramic pads, etc…
