Comfortable waiting room with coffee, refreshments and a Customer Work Center so you can keep up on business while you wait Our strong points for years have been engine diagnosis, brake repair, tires, transmission repair and routine maintenance…but of all of them, we’re perhaps proudest of our engine diagnostics services. Engine control systems get more sophisticated with every passing year, and are to a point where it takes a lot more than a tech with a basic code reader/scanner to make a proper diagnosis. At Kirkwood Auto Center, we’ve got the most up-to-date diagnostic equipment – the kind you’d expect to see at a dealership – and can deliver diagnostic work that other shops can’t match.
