I have been coming to Kenco automotive for a while now and I trust them to get any major repair done right and the customer service is superb.
First experience I brought them a 1998 Oldsmobile cutlass that had a leak on the head gasket and the owner advise me to do a full head gasket job and replace all the seals and also some other tune ups for a car with 60,000 miles on it, needless to say the Oldsmobile now has 130,000 miles and the parents could not be happier with the car. at the time I was a recent college graduate and Chris and the owner work with me to get a very competitive price on all my repairs.
Second experience a 1997 Toyota 4Runner which they replace the head gasket seals, fixed a fuel injector issue, shocks and other tune ups for a car with 150,000 miles. The 4 runner is now at 200,000 miles and runs like it just rolled out of the dealership. they knockout the work in less than 4days and the process was painless. Even though they were $50-$100 dollars more expensive than the competitors I chose Kenco Automotive because their initial estimates are very accurate and they will get you on the road ASAP.
Third experience, I did not shop around at all this time, I did my homework on parts pricing before dropping my car off with Chris and he got back to me with a reasonable quote and I gave him the go ahead and in less than to days I had my 2002 Chevy Avalanche with new shocks, new brakes( including emergency brakes as well), serpentine belt, oil change, and brand new tires (Chris help to get the best deal possible on a great set of tires) Chris further saved me money and helped me stay under my initial budget by suggesting to hold off on unnecessary services that could wait for the next major tune up.
Bottom line- They have earned my trust (hence my first Yelp review ) and if you got any major work to be done on your car I would bring it here first if you live in the Newark / Fremont area.
