Tom and his team are amazing! My wife and I have taken all our vehicles here and couldn't be happier with them. We recommend everyone go see Tom. Promise you he and his team will take good care of your vehicle. A few weeks ago we took our Lexus to the dealership (still under warranty) and they "diagnosed" a noise we were hearing as faulty fuel injectors. Yesterday we took the car to Tom to have the breaks done (1/3 the cost of having Lexus do the breaks) and told them about the noise. As soon as Tom heard the noise he knew it was NOT the fuel injector but a loose heat shield. Not even close Lexus! If you need work done to your vehicle, there isn't a better place to take it than to K&B. You won't be disappointed.

These guys are awesome! They specialize in Japanese vehicles, but I brought my 2007 Ford in when the dealership estimates were too much and I saw K&B's reviews. They are extremely honest and told me there was a sensor they couldn't repair. Next time, I came back with my 2013 Acura for a pre-purchase inspection. They were again extremely courteous and honest. I overheard Tom telling other customers whose vehicles were under warranty to take their cars to the dealership and do the repairs there, free of charge. Then, they told me the same thing. As the cherry on top, their waiting room is comfortable and has free WiFi, with snacks and drinks for purchase.

I have been here a few times and each time I have been happy with the quality of service and professionalism of the staff. The employees go out of their way to explain what is going on with your vehicle, get approval for the work done prior to completion, explain the cost associated with repairs, and make sure they are timely with their service. The location offered free wifi, coffee, water, and he cookies in the blue tin (yum).

The check engine light came on in my car today. I called around to other dealerships to see if I could get a same day appointment and was disappointed. Then I came across k and b on yelp and I am so glad I did. I was met with excellent customer service and he even said he would check it out for free. When was the last time you received a free engine check, well today I did. Tom was great and fast said everything looks fine and if you have any more issues just drop it off. This is my new go to auto shop for my car service needs.

Left work to find both driver's side tires completely flat. Tow truck came, pumped them and both held air. Drove here to figure out what the problem. First, customer service is excellent. Second, they were quick and showed me the leak, explained it was a slow leak and they'd be flat by the next morning and that it is illegal to patch in the particular spots near the side. Then they told me who to avoid (they don't do tires) and provided a couple recommendations. While I was in there, another woman came in needing a part that she already had attached. They did it quickly and for free as her husband had been in for work on his car. I will come back the next time I need work on my car. They were empathetic and apologized several times, which I haven't always found to be the case.

Awesome crew and services. I've been going there for years. Can't really add anymore to what has already been said. Awesome!
