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.

"Came here for tires and alignment. I initially was drawn here due to the great reviews I read. I was happy that I was able to get a quote and make an appointment all through email. That was super convenient for me. Service was great, the price was fair, will definitely use them in the future."
"A friend recommended Kirkwood Auto because he'd used them for years and his car last 212,000 miles by always doing the work recommended by Kirkwood Auto. So, I've decided to do the same. They are always comparable price-wise to other places, but it's mostly about feeling like I can trust them to do the job well and to advise me correctly on what needs to be done immediately and what things I can wait on, and THAT I truly appreciate. Everyone there is friendly and patient with my questions, even when I haven't been exactly patient with them!"
"We are just in from CA and had a great experience. Repair was diagnosed correctly and repaired in a timely manner. Additional information (non automotive) about shopping has been greatly appreciated. Russ On another visit for work on a different vehicle the experience was equally good. Russ"
"Spacious, comfortable waiting area including a separate "work space" for people needing to keep in touch with their office. Courteous, professional staff who explained everything up front and at delivery. Competitive prices for my new tires (I shopped around), great post-sales service, accurate estimation of time-to-completion. If you have to take time out of your day to have work done on your car, you'd be hard pressed to find a better place to do it."
"While having my car serviced today I wonder why I haven't posted a review sooner. I have been a customer of Kirkwood Auto for years. I am always satisfied with the care and service I receive. I feel the staff is genuine and trustworthy. I noticed each person that arrived was treated with such great care and the technicians take the time to explain services and recommendations in detail while patiently answering guests questions and addressing their concerns. This quality of service is appreciated. The waiting area is always kept clean. Plenty of seating, a television, water cooler and I believe coffee and tea. I have always referred anyone looking for car care needs to Kirkwood Auto."
"After leaving Martin Dealerships for service du2 a fraudulent diagnosis, we are hapy with Kirkwood Auto Center. Looking forward to a long relationship on..."
