This RepairPal Certified shop is a well equipped auto shop with the capability to handle just about all of your automotive needs. This team of professionals is very experienced, with well over 200 years between them.

Smart folks and GREAT customer service.

Verified CustomerDecember 05, 2013

The mechanic was incompetent. Told me the battery was completely dead and no lights would turn on. I flicked the headlights on and everything worked perfectly. Staff was standoffish. They diagnosed the problem as something completely wrong and when I took it to a different mechanic it was a completely separate issue

Reply from K.C. Martin Automotive Service Co. – K.C. MartinJanuary 20, 2014

I reviewed Micheal's repair order,he "stated dash light did not work,starter would turn over engine but engine would not start(sometimes")client wanted us to check ignition switch first,the car was towed in,was out front,the technician went outside to check it out,it had battery power,no dash lights, the aftermarket ignition immobilizer had a light blinking.We called the customer to get starting procedure for the breathalyzer,customer said he "could not tells over phone",We asked him to bring new tips for the breathalyze when he came in,He replied that he would not.We never had the chance to diagnosis the problem,the car never came into building,customer never talked to technician,the service adviser was very willing to help the client,was not given a chance and the customer was never charged.

Verified CustomerNovember 06, 2013

They performed the services requested and not only was the cost less than I expected, they called me later to say they had made an error in calculating my AAA deduction and would add it back to my credit card.

They do an honest job. Never try to upsell me on additional services that are unnecessary. I believe their check system insures a thorough evaluation of the condition of my vehicle.
