We love Auto Care by Kenely. We have been taking our cars there for years. Eric and the guys have always helped us maintain our vehicles to get the most out of them. They are friendly and the work is fast and thorough. We know we can trust the guys to shoot us straight. - Diana S.
We've relied on Kenely's to keep our cars running safe for 18 years now. This is the only shop we'll use for smog checks, routine checkups & repairs. They've always done a great job no matter how easy or difficult. Eric will always quote a job beforehand and his crew of mechanics do a superb job that's timely and reliable. - Lee M.
Over the last couple of years Kenely mechanics have repaired two different vehicles for us. Fair priced, quick service, and a very pleasant experience. Eric is our hero! You will be happy dealing with the staff here. - Patsy G.
I received a complimentary letter from our member, Mr. Walter Wallis, informing us of your facility’s professional and courteous attention and service. Very few customers take time to acknowledge a job well done, especially in the automobile repair business. We are proud of your continuous quality work extended to the CSAA membership. A satisfied customer always recommends an excellent repair facility. Keep up the good work! - Donald F.
On December 23, I was on vacation in Sacramento, and my car would not start. The tow-truck driver towed me to two garages that could not help me before Christmas. The dispatcher recommended Auto Care by Kenely, a AAA-approved facility. Within an hour, you had made room for my car, diagnosed a failed starter, and located a replacement. When I returned to pick up my car, you had completed the work early, and the bill was less than the estimate. You saved my Christmas plans! - Walter W.
I want to commend the work done by your shop and your service technician, Dirk. While I was in Sacramento on vacation, my van’s A/C compressor went out. Someone recommended your shop. Your manager told me he would make repairing my van a top priority. I was concerned about getting everything fixed properly and put back together correctly, since my conversion van had many controls, lights, electric rear sofa, and many other things that a mechanic usually doesn’t have to contend with ‘under the hood.’ When I picked up the van, I was very pleased that everything was put back in the proper place. On our return trip to Alabama, the A/C worked flawlessly in triple digit heat. - Keneth F.
As complicated as automobiles are becoming, quality auto repair facilities are difficult to find. I’m glad to say, however, that Auto Care by Kenely seems to be an exception to the rule. In each visit that I’ve made here, I have found you and your staff to be honest and accurate, with the quality of work beyond reproach. I recommend you unconditionally and whole-heartedly. - Daniel N.
I have been a satisfied customer of Auto Care by Kenely since 1987. They stand behind their work, they answer my questions well, and they keep my car in tip-top shape. It’s a great comfort to know that I can count on them whenever I need automotive service. - Marty M.
Got my smog check done for under $50, and was in and out in less than 40 minutes. Eric helped me and he was super nice and patient when I called for info two times in 5 minutes :) I walked to Starbucks while they were working on it, and I could have even walked to Walmart if they needed it longer. Great location, easy parking, clean office, and employees that aren't the usual womanizing mechanics. Loved it! - Customer Review
There are times when you just don't need to have one more thing go wrong. Say, for example, when you're a week and a hundred miles from home, coping with personal loss, in the middle of the night. It's times like that when "just one more thing" is really uncalled for. And when "just one more thing" is your car breaking down, stuck in park on a two lane bridge, blocking traffic leaving a baseball game on a Friday night, you can get a little frazzled.
But then, when "just one more one more thing" is the same car breaking down AGAIN after replacing the battery, the afternoon before said personal loss is brought to closure, and said car's passengers have to drive 100 miles home to get back to work, one might be inclined to throw one's hands up in the air and exclaim "FORGET YOU, WORLD!" Sometimes, though, help is out there. You might have to pay a small chunk of change for it, but if you can find someplace like Auto Care by Kenely, then "just one more one more thing" can be taken off your plate.
The car went into their shop at 8am, after a quick and professional tow by Performance Towing. After listening to the car's symptoms and our woeful tale, the shop's service representative hopped out to get some number from the car, and returned with an estimate for cost and time. We were assured that if everyone's guess was right, and the problem laid in the car's alternator, then we would have the car back by the afternoon. In fact, the work was completed just an hour after noon. The total was a smidge more than the initial estimate, but nary enough to complain about. The car operated perfectly the rest of the day and for the long drive home.
Auto Care by Kenely isn't the kind of place where they wash your car after servicing it or offer other frills. But they get the job done, have been working on cars for 15+ years, and, I think, can be relied upon in a pinch. For someone like me, who can change the oil, a tire or a battery, but little more, that counts for a lot. - Paul B.
