I found K & S on the computer. I felt Seth and the shop were excellent. I will be using them as long as I'm in the area. Job well done

Mike was great. Really friendly. Explained everything in a way we understood.

by - Verified Customer March 15, 2017

It was a electrical diagnostic job and I eventually found a shop myself that does the repairs at a decent price. I basically hired K&S to confirm what I suspected was the problem.

K and S ran comprehensive diagnostics to assess the problem, then thoroughly explained the work to be done. They even consulted an expert with our vehicle before beginning the work. You could probably find cheaper a garage somewhere else, but you will not find a more professional, skilled and trustworthy one!

Good, trustworthy mechanic who only performs the work that is needed.

K&S works fairly with customers and I haven't had bad experience with service there.

by - Verified Customer January 04, 2017

These guys are awesome! I had a very challenging and expensive issue with my 2006 Acura that Seth went out of his way to explain and provide insights that enabled me to make a good sound decision to move forward with the fix. They also uncovered a very significant tire related issue that a dealers shop had missed just days before. I'd highly recommend these guys and will definitely use them again.

I talked to another shop. They quoted me over $3000 to do a job saying that a bunch of other things were required and they were going to use previously used parts. I don't know why I even bothered to check with another shop. I went to K & S and they charged me $900 exactly what they said they would. I don't know why I would even go anywhere else. And the problem was fixed!

by - Verified Customer October 31, 2016

My window wipers suddenly stopped working. I was referred to k&s repairs by a friend. Seth took a look at my car and had it back to me the same day and was fairly priced. I was very impressed. I will definitely be a returning customer.
