The only mechanic I trust! The owner inspected my car for no fee and was more than helpful in helping me find a used car. Nicest and most honest mechanic. Highly recommend!

These guys are not out to make you spend money. I have heard them tell customers to take it to the dealer first, and if the dealer won't warranty the car then bring it back. I brought my car in for brakes and they said no they're ok.

Bryan, the owner of K&B, can answer just about any question about any vehicle and will work on any make. They stand behind the work they do and the estimates they give, even when the a/c compressor ended up costing more than quoted, Bryan wouldn't take my money. They give honest estimates and do excellent work at fair prices. I have recommended K&B to friends and neighbors without hesitation. I can't praise this shop enough.

These guys are great! Honest, competent, trustworthy, skilled - everything you could want. They diagnosed and replaced the water pump in my 2005 Scion XB for a fair price, and did it quickly. Can't say enough good about them.

At last I've found a mechanic I can take my car to and know that he will fix what needs fixing and stop there. I've been in there with our Ford Escort and more recently with our Ford Focus, and Tom is always so helpful. I'm reasonably knowledgeable about cars but last time I was stumped, he diagnosed the problem (a failing rear axle bearing) just from talking to me for 30 seconds, and it was under $200 to fix.

Tom, the shop manager, is top-notch. Rather than charge me for a new one, he showed me how to hit my blower motor to get it started. And he did not charge me. I have heat in the winter and cold a/c now! Last time, one of his mechanics missed a bad spark plug wire, and I could tell when I picked it up that it wouldn't make it on the highway. Tom was so apologetic and had it ready that evening. These guys have kept my 2001 Kia Sephia going with 168,000 miles and no car payments in years! I recommend them!

A wonderful experience every time I go. They are the only honest place I know. I will only use them for taking care of my cars. Quality work, low prices, scrupulous honesty in telling you what actually needs to be done and what doesn't. They specialize in doing Asian cars, and so some American cars give them issues, but they will tell you upfront if they have an issue, and if they feel they can't do it right, they will point you to someone who can.

Integrity. That is hard to find in an auto repair shop. After we moved here it took us six years to find K and B Auto. Tom and his crew are honest, skilled, and their prices are fair. They treat their customers with respect and the is especially appreciated by women. We have referred numerous friends to their shop and they all have had positive experiences there, too. You can't go wrong using K and B Auto.
