They performed a routine inspection and oil change in under an hour. They walked me through what was wearing out and when I should plan on getting it replaced. Very helpful.

Quick repair on thermostat failure. They verified the problem before just tearing it apart, didn't just take my word on it.

Other than forgetting to reset the oil change switch, I was truly impressed with the quality of service and prefessionalism of the staff.

by - Verified Customer January 30, 2017

The work done had been previously recommended when my vehicle was last serviced. There was no pressure to make any of the repairs, but since I wish to keep the vehicle for several more years I opted to follow Kensington Auto's recommendations. The car rides and runs great!

Very good work.

I was satisfied with their work, they were done quickly and they did the work correctly. I showed up an hour early and asked them if they wanted me to come back at my scheduled time, they said "no they could fit me in." I didn't have to go home and come back and wait.
