Kenny and his staff have ALWAYS gone over and above for me. It's much easier for me to just take my car to one of the hundreds of other places, but I'm happy to make the drive to make sure that my car is safe for me and my kids to drive. AND also for the honest work and estimates that go into car care. I refer everyone that's looking for car care to Kenny and the team at Kenny's Lakes Area Auto! Good people who truly care about their clientele.

Kenny is proud of his business. So proud, in fact that a few years ago he changed it from "Mufflers and More" to Kenny's Lakes Area Auto Experts. Not the type of guy that wants to hide anything. Yes, stuff happens and there's not a business out there that can say they've never screwed up, but the best measure of character - for ANY business - is what they do when (not if) something goes wrong. I trust Kenny and his team to always take care of car troubles in the Walled Lake area.

Kenny himself is a tried and true, consummate professional in every sense. My experience there was exceptional, well sorted, inviting, and exceeded all of my expectations.Having dealt with countless shops like this before, I can easily refer this one as a cut above the rest.I will be back for future service.

I usually do my own auto repair but I’m getting older and don’t have the time anymore. Kenny and his team did an excellent job replacing struts, tie rod end and alignment. The car washed and ready to go as promised. The car handles great. I would definitely recommend them to others.

Great service as usual at Kenny's. Had a new set of tires installed, alignment corrected, and brakes flushed today to get ready for a vacation trip in my Z. Bill, Mike and all the guys took great care of me as usual. I usually DIY but any time I am short on time or there is a particularly difficult job I trust Kenny's Lakes Area Auto Experts to get it done for me. And the popcorn makes a great breakfast. 😛

Kenny, Bill and Mike are trustworthy professionals with an overriding goal of keeping you safe and on the road. They maintain 12+ vehicles of mine...including my son’s. Highly recommend!

I dropped the vehicle off at 3pm on a Thursday and didn't get it back until 1pm the next Monday. Went here because my vehicle broke down and it was within my AAA tow radius. Ended up needing a replacement cv axle. This shop would not give me a Quote over the phone but I was in a pinch so had it towed anyways. I called 3 shops, talking to 2 family friend mechanics, and 1 hour of online research I figured the repair would be $180-$220 in parts/labor. They called me and told me it would be $420 out the door. $170 for the part and $250 for labor(2.5 hours). Every mechanic uses a program called Michelle for their repair time quote and that site says it should take 1 hour. Also the gold lifetime warrantied cv axle at autozone and oreilleys $70. So I called up there to ask why it was double the price and all the guy said was the part is that much from their supplier and they warranty all their work for 2 years so it's worth the money. Long story short he said I could supply my own part but it would tack on more money to the labor costs. He was extremely rude. When I went to pay I asked a different worker why it was so expensive and he was hostile and said the same thing. I saved myself $100 buying the brand new part down the street and when I got home my receipt said none of the work was under warranty because I had them use "my own part" which I bought brand new at autozone 30 minutes before. Neither of the two workers told me the warranty was void if I supplied my own part. They didn't check any fluids, quote me on other obvious work the vehicle needed, and tried to charge me $100 over DEALER price because they New I was desperate when they saw the vehicle come in on a tow truck. Multiple certified mechanics told me there is NO WAY that should have cost over $220. This shop is not trustworthy, scams customers who are desperate, they are very rude, and charge more than the dealership does. I've had multiple car repairs and multiple different shops and have never had a bad experience like this. Avoid at all costs

Don't waste your time with a safety inspection it's nothing more than common sense. Yeah great they told me the blinkers work $100.00. I was quoted $2800.00 for unnecessary repairs, no breakdown of the cost and labor until I asked them to show it to me. They did a diagnostic check for $204.00 then charged me $300.00 and gave me all these excuses why. Bottom line i paid them to get my car back took it to BC auto and they fixed it for $98.00 bucks. I was looking for honesty and reliability and Kenny' fell way short of that.

If I could rate this place negative stars I would not even open on a Saturday and apparently owns the lot next to his shop (recent purchase) according to his newest employee who he has here trying to collect $10 from everyone parking for a FREE event non the less maybe the owner should think again before he sends out a disrespectful individual to ''represent" his company.

Kenny and his guys really saved me today! They were able to not only fix my issues without charging me for unnecessary things, but also kept in great contact with me which minimized my anxiety greatly! On top of great service they sent a sweet man named Jerry to come pick me up and bring me to the shop at no cost to me! I highly recommend them, thanks again guys!😁

This place is simply amazing! They have worked on six of my vehicles without a stitch of a problem. Great prices, work always done on time and so easy to work with. I don't think there is a better shop in town.

Kenny's was great !!!! Just had a front end alignment but I'm confident that I will use them for more work. They were referred to me by a high performance shop and I couldn't be happier.

I'll never take my car anywhere else. The first time I took my car in for a safety inspection because my family and I were driving down South after a death in the family. They fit me in to their loaded schedule, offered me a ride, gave me coffee, and Jerry and I talked for a while. They fixed what absolutely needed done and told me what I could wait on fixing because money was tight. I took it back to get the rest fixed not too long ago. Again, Bill, Mike, and Jerry were incredible. Adam gave me a ride home so I didn't have to wait. Everything was done in a timely manner and I knew exactly what was being done and why. Most importantly, they fixed my car affordably, didn't try to sell me anything I didn't need, were nice, explained everything and answered all my questions, and I trust these guys to do it right and not pull one over on me. I love Kenny's shop, they've earned my loyalty!

Very disappointing experience as my son's 2003 car was towed there due to over heating. After charging me $100 for diagnostics (no biggy), I was called and said the repair would be over $1200. I wanted a detailed explanation for $1200 so they told me that not only would the thermostat need to be replaced, but that every hose (6-8) would need to be replaced since the overheated engine could have damaged the hoses, then the oil would need to be changed and on and on. I explained that the car had only cost $3000 so we just wanted the minimum repair to get the car on the road. They said they wouldn't do anything unless I agreed to the whole repair job. So we picked up the car, went to AutoZone and bought a thermostat and replaced it. (less than $100). The hoses are not brittle as they said and the car runs fine. Whatever happened to the good old days where you could trust the local shop?......sigh.....

We choose to go small business so thought give it a try. Tuffy less than half a mile provide free inspection service but this dude charged us $50 and didn't even perform through inspection. He didn't have tool to take the rear tires and asking us to buy for him to finish the job. Would not recommend it to anyone. Go to Tuffy, ask for Tony much reliable. Surprised Kenny LAKES AUTO is in a business even.

RIP OFF! Dishonest and expensive! Zero stars if I could. This is the place your dad would tell you to stay away from. They will nickle and dime you to death. I needed my brakes done and the price seemed high but I needed them replaced before I went on vacation. I got my old parts back and saved them. A few weeks later I needed a headlight replaced so I went to Dan's Auto in Walled Lake. I had them give me a price on the same work that Kenny did. Dan was half the price. Dan said the rear pads that Kenny replaced didn't even need replacing. I guess the high price from Kenny helps paying for his race cars. Avoid this place at all cost! Shame on you Kenny.

Amazing shop, amazing crew. I've been going to Kenny's for the last few years, and brought them some sub-par vehicles to work on; they've always gotten me back on the road quickly and with maintenance schedules so I know whats next. They've even given me a freebie when I needed to drop her off to check the charging system, test drive and all. Be a regular to these guys, they'll keep ya goin!

Honesty counts. A lot. I'm no auto genius by any means, and they could have taken me big-time. I had a noise in the front-end. It could have been the axel. On a 4WD, that's over a grand. It was tracked down to a bad tire, of all things. Their profit on that job was low, but their esteem grew gigantic in my eyes. Next time, I had a cylinder knocking like crazy. Once again, it could have been anything from a piston to the rings to a rod. It turned out to be a coil. Now, replacing the coil wasn't cheap... but it was a fraction of the price of a new rod or piston. Talk to Bill when you go in there. He's an honest guy. Oh, and by the way -- my vehicle's running great.

I called Kenny after hours regarding a blown fuse. He let me come to the house and analyzed the situation in 5 minutes. He replaced the blown plug and sent me on my way. He definitely went above and beyond late on a friday evening. I would recommend them to anyone. Thanks Kenny!!

Kenny’s Lakes Area has some amazing service people. Bill took great care of me, and diagnosed an issue which could have been car ruining if not detected. I would have gotten a second opinion on their other repair suggestions if my car was worth the money- but I’ve heard worse quotes for repairs. My only questioning comment is about service to diagnosis, or an additional communication. I followed up 2-3 times before I got a call from the team, which took about 1.6 business days. On my current experience, definitely would go there again when I’m in a pinch.

I have 100% trust in Kenny's care of our family's autos. Just like our pharmacy has our records and keeps everything up to date; Kenny's does the same with our cars. It's where we've taken them since the first oil change. We get BG protection which is a big piece of mind. Bill and Mike know you by name when you walk in the door. Kenny is proud of his staff and business and he should be. 5 stars

(Opinion:) Absolute Pirate. They gave me a bill for the preparation of an estimate with a subtotal of $38.95. When I refused, the work they estimated, they pointed to two $108 charges (that were buried in the bill but not itemized or included in the subtotal) and refused to return my truck. I insisted the balance due was $38.95, offered to pay that balance and demanded the return of my truck. They called the cops.

Kenny and his team take great care of their guests and the cars that they service. With my Corvette, I know I can trust him to be knowledgeable of common problems, and complete repairs as necessary and in a timely manner. Whenever I have an issue, Kenny is always happy to help and responsive. Only shop I trust in the area, honestly. Anything I don't have Kenny's do, I do myself.

I got into a bit of a pickle with my car during the recent heavy snow. Needed a handful of parts replaced in my car. Kenny's Lakes Area Auto Experts found the parts I needed at reasonable prices, and their labor rates are also very competitive--often at the low end when you compare the rates online. They answered any and all questions I had regarding the work that needed to be done and the parts that needed to be replaced. They were very flexible when I decided to change the game plan for some of the repairs and had no problems with me ordering some of my own parts and having them delivered to the shop. They had all of the parts in a matter of days and had my car good to go the same day the last of the parts arrived.

We took our car to Kenny upon the recommendation of a family member at Thanksgiving dinner! Boy are we thankful we did - Kenny quickly diagnosed the problem and had it repaired all in one afternoon. Plus - he saved us a bunch of money! So happy we found a honest car repair place in Walled Lake! We won’t go anywhere else!

by Jim Fekete on Kenny's Lakes Area Auto

Great service with high quality work. The front desk people, Bill & Miike, are top notch guys and really know their stuff. The guys doing the repairs do a great job. I’ve been taking my vehicles to Kenny for many years starting when he was located on Haggerty rd. Kenny’s a very capable and knowledgeable guy who cares a great about his employees, his customers and his community. I’ve never had a problem with their service or quality of work. I only have one vehicle now and it’s great that they have a shuttle service. Ken’s dad, Jerry, is a great shuttler and I enjoy talking with him on the rides to and from the shop. Costs are very reasonable for the high quality work they do.

I had alot of electrical problems on my silverado and some bad computers, the truck would not start, so kenny and his crew got the truck running great. I would recommend them to fix your car or truck

I am a newcomer to Kenny's Auto Repair. I think they do a superior job vs the dealers at a more reasonable. The staff are helpful and courteous.

Kenny and company are awesome. They've taken great care of me and my cars. I'm EXTREMELY picky about who I let touch certain vehicles, especially ones I consider my "toys", and Kenny and his crew are at the top of my very short list. They did an awesome job lifting my F150, and the A/C blows nice and cold in my Corvette. My work truck is nice and quiet now too after they rebuild the rear end. There are a lot of places closer to me than Kenny's, but the peace of mind I have knowing my vehicle is in good hands is worth the drive to me. - From Facebook Reviews

Just had KLAAE throw a new set of tires on my car, fix the alignment, and flush the brakes to get ready for a vacation trip today. Bill, Mike and the guys in the back took great care of me and got me on the road right away as usual. Excellent folks to work with and the popcorn makes a great breakfast while you wait. - From Facebook Reviews
