Words From Our Customers

Megan Lopez-Cepero
This establishment is so professional. You have an appointment. Drop your car off and there are no delays. The service providers keep you informed. I had an oil change, tire rotation and window issue -- it was all completed perfectly and at a VERY reasonable price. When I went to check out the Service Manager was wonderful and explained to me how often I need my oil changed -- less than I thought AND told me why. Just an outstanding experience! I will be back.
Gayle Kemp
First time using this auto repair shop. Their response to my inquiry was prompt and I was scheduled for the next business day. They picked up my car, quickly called me with the update on the service needed and had it done and back to me by the end of the day. Excellent service, professional and super convenient! Having the first responder discount was a huge bonus! Thank you for supporting us! Highly recommend!
Deborah Derry
The personnel at Kirkwood Auto are always professional & personable - answer any questions I may have about my vehicle; keep me informed regarding the job they are doing & report to me, beforehand, about any issues they have found. Very up-front about the condition & wear of my vehicle which, of course, is VERY important to me. The folks at Kirkwood Auto have been keeping me safe, probably going on 18-20 yrs now. Wouldn't go anywhere else with my truck or car care.
Ernie Tidball
This place is awesome! Wish I had known about it before now. They are very friendly and the service is great! I thought waiting area was nice and had some nice amenities. Bathrooms and facility overall are very clean. I LOVED the fact that they had a shuttle to take people home or pick them up. Saved me several hours! Hector the driver did a great job and the service associate Sam also did great! This place is a definite must to go if you need your car serviced. I will definitely go back!
