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. 😛

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!😁

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.

My headlight bulb needed to be replaced, Kenny's quoted me $336.00, yes $336.00 to change the bulb! I know nothing about cars but this seemed so suspicious. After watching a YouTube tutorial I was able change it myself in fifteen minutes and it cost me $12.00. Again, I know nothing about cars and have never changed a headlight bulb. I thought Kenny's was trustworthy but I was so wrong! I stopped by yesterday to see if they could change it same day since I figured it would be an easy fix and I just didn't want to be bothered doing it. I was shocked after the employee came back and told me the entire bumper needed to be removed to access the light bulb, he said this would be a labor intensive process and would cost $162.00 in labor alone and I had to leave my car there for several hours. Again, I was able to do it myself in fifteen minutes with nothing but a screwdriver. Kenny's Lakes Area Auto blatantly lied to me. What they tried to do to me was scam me, I'm so saddened that for a split second I almost entertained paying. Kenny's auto shop is dishonest and I will never EVER come back.

This is for people thinking to get service here. They are dishonest here! They will quote you hundreds for services that cost under $50. For a place that makes claims of "buliding a relationship" with customers, it's because they want you to come back to be ripped off. "We work hard to build a relationship with our customers based on honesty, respect and trust in our process. - Kenny’s Lakes Area Auto Experts." Owner do not respond, this is not for you. I've copied your cookie cutter respond for you. SCAM SCAM SCAM SCAM SCAM SCAM SCAM SCAM SCAM SCAM SCAM SCAM

Highly satisfied with the work that was performed on my vehicle at Kenny's. The staff was welcoming, friendly, and knowledgeable. I was able to schedule an appointment, utilize their after hours drop box service, and even had assistance in picking up my vehicle after the service was performed. Customer service was top notch and made the whole experience extremely convenient. Regarding the work performed, I requested a four-wheel alignment which was completed quickly and now the vehicle tracks straight as an arrow! My daily driver/beater with a heater was treated the same as your Dad's Cadillac! Kenny and team, as a first time customer, you've earned my future business. Nicely done.

I took my car to Kenny’s for the first time on 4/2/2020. I asked for an oil change ($38) and a brake inspection ($15) which is normally included in the price of a tire rotation but I just bought 4 new tires recently. I was told it would be a few hours so I dropped it off and walked home. I got a text after a few hours with an estimate for front and rear brakes plus a few other recommended services, but I was not pressured to do any of them on the same day. That is why I will certainly take my car back to Kenny’s when I’m able to do these other services. I’m done with quick lubes and corporate chains.

Kenny’s Lakes Area Auto Experts are the best guys in town for car repairs!Bill and Mike always find time to fit my car into their busy schedule, making appointment times super convenient. Everyone at Kenny’s will always be upfront with you about what’s going on with your car and never up-sell you. Whenever you have a question, they are more than willing to explain what’s going on and how the problem can be fixed. Bonus; you can drop your car off to get serviced & they will take you back to work or wherever you need to go!

i had my car towed up to kennys to have just my engine looked at .well after inspecting my car the said the engine was bad on my car a. Eclipse 07 4 banger they told me to replace the motor it was going to be 4900.That is a outrageous price for a used motor and it was going to already have 123,000 miles on it thats just absurd.i priced the same motor at 3 other places with motor installed with alot less miles on it avg price about 2500-3000 most i seen was midas at 4000 with low miles and a yr warranty so i told them just let me pay for the inspection and i will get my car after having it towed home my window was left down and broken rain all in my car and my battery was over charged so bad it blew acid all over underneath my hood when i talked to them about this they denied everything blamed the towe truck driver for the window and told me to go get a new battery on my own. I dont recommend this place to anyone

Kenny's is one of the very best automotive repair facilities I have dealt with in over 30 years, their customer service is one of the best. Repairs are done right the first time, all details are provided and the never let me down. During Covid-19 is when I really needed the help and they were there, professional and with true understanding of my needs. No pressure just a true honest customer service. Thank you for supporting your customers and the community of Walled Lake, AWESOME!

I needed four tires mounted and ba6 and was in a time crunch... I called Kenny's and Kenny answered and was able to fit me in right away. My wheels are from a special edition track car and very rare and expensive. I normally do morning and balancing myself at a friend's office that has z auot lab but they are closed due to COVID. So I was very nervous about letting someone work on these rare expensive wheels. I moment I started checking I at the front counter I k ew I had nothing to worry about. The questions they asked me told me I wax in the right place...."are the tire directional?", "Any special places the weights need to go to clear the brakes?" "Do you want us to balance the wheels first and then install the tires?", "Any special requests?" These types of questions set me right at ease as I knew they had worked with high end wheel and tire setups before and not just mom's minivan getting 4 new all seasons that isngoingmto.go 75 down the highway vs my wheels going 150mph down a race track straight away.... So I left And went to grab some lunch and about 45min later I got a text message letting me know my tires were complete, that was pretty cool! We all get texts from the dentist,but you auto shop is even cooler. The tire were perfect and the wheels just as I had dropped them off. VERY happy with the service I received at Kenny's. Will be back if I ever need their help again!!

I've been going to the guys for years and they haven't let me down yet. Very professional and knowledgeable. I've relied on them for basic maintenance and serious repair. They're always honest about what needs to be done and what can wait for a later date to manage overall cost. I've also relied on them for HPDE track-day inspections. I have no doubt that these guys are the real deal.

Extremely poor customer service, rude and will post his name on social media. And tell everyone I know what happened. The two people who referred me to this place said they will never go back again . To the guy from Kenny's was it my skin color? Only you and I know right now. Don't think you can speak down to grown and equal man. I will share my experience with everyone at work and friends and social media. The worst example of a neighborhood auto repair shop.

My daughter has taken her vehicle here many times since it’s close to her house. I’m confused, when you get an oil change, isn’t the shop supposed to check the other fluids as well and top them off (or at least let the customer know they’re low). She didn’t have a drop of washer fluid in her reservoir and it wasn’t even mentioned? She also has an older car and can’t afford to get all the needed repairs done at once and has to space them out. On her checkout papers it mentioned a problem and next to it said, “don’t bother writing again.” Umm, excuse me?? It takes less than 10 seconds to write a simple sentence. I’m not sure if they see a young woman by herself and think they can swindle her but I would stay far away from Kenny’s.

Whenever I need anything auto related I go to Kenny's. They always have the car ready when they say and they always seem happy to see me.

I had a used Jeep Wrangler inspected with full intent to purchase. I brought it to Kenny’s because I know the experience and integrity of Marty Burns who provided a thorough inspection. I am so thankful that I did. Marty and Kenny’s Service saved me from a $20,000 mistake since the vehicle had so many unseen issues. Thank you!

Kenny and the crew are awesome! I previously used Kenny’s when I was a young driver moved away for about 10 years. I recently moved back. I just brought my vehicle in for maintenance and they remembered the truck I used to drive! They really care about their customers and their needs for vehicle maintenance. They provided me with suggestions for my next maintenance and will do the research to have it ready when I come back. Awesome people and I would highly recommend them to anyone!

My family has been going to Kenny’s for years and we always have nothing but great things to say about them. They work with us on payments and price and it truly does feel like a family helping each other out. We’ve had pretty much any car issue you could think of fixed here and have even purchased vehicles from them. We truly appreciate all of the work and time kenny’s auto puts in for us and always going the extra mile!!

The clutch went out on my son's Audi. We originally took it to another shop that was closer to where the car broke down. Not only did they not have the correct tools to repair the clutch, they diagnosed it as the incorrect part.The staff at Kenny's arranged for the vehicle to be towed and were able to repair the clutch quickly. Almost all of our business was done over the phone so I never had to go to the shop except to pick up the car after the repair was complete.I highly recommend checking them out for honest and top notch service and repairs.

Have been taking our cars to Lakes Area Auto for many years. Have a family of Six and Three vehicles. No stranger to repairs as you can imagine. Always treated as a valued customer and a neighbor. Have never had an issue with any repair. If I ever did however I am more than confident that the issue would be resolved positively. Kenny , Bill and crew are great. Recommend unconditionally!!

Kenny, Mike, Bill and their crew are the only people I recommend and use on my personal vehicles. They will never sell you something you don’t need, they are honest and very professional. I’ve walked in there thinking I needed a bunch of stuff, they check it out and replace only what is needed. I’m working on taking my Honda to a million miles, and with their care, it will happen. Thanks guys!

I went to Kenny's, an hour away from my home, because they were highly recommended from a fellow member of my car club. I had a very challenging job for them and they enthusiastically took that challenging and came through for me on time.Seeing as my race car is old enough to vote, we expected some surprises to come to light once disassembly began, and of course there were some. Not their fault, my care is old and battered. Not only did they find solutions to these issues but they did a great job. As for professionalism, they communicated every step of the way as we approached the job, and when decisions had to be made we communicated through those as well. I am 100% confident putting my life at stake going 110+ miles an hour in this car at SCCA sanctioned race tracks. They will be seeing me again, hopefully not before the end of the season.

I've had all my Cadillac service done here and also had some electrical issues that nobody could figure out. Even the Cadillac dealership only wanted to start changing sensors without really knowing the problem. Called Kenny's and he knew exactly the common problem that this car has. Took it in and it was fixed right the first time. I highly recommend this place for all auto repairs. Very professional with excellent service.

Kenny, mike and bill are great Outstanding family atmosphere. The level of expertise is amazing - they know exactly what they are doing and can explain everything to you clearly with easy to understand terms. As someone who loves cars, there are not many people I would let work on my cars; however, I trust them completely to ensure my car is running and preforming properly. I would and do recommend them to anyone and everyone.

I took my car to Kenny's at the end of January for repairs. I informed them that I was smelling burning oil and that there was oil in my coolant tank and I was concerned that there was an issue with the engine oil cooler. They inspected the car and on the first inspection paperwork it states that there is a gasket leak in the cooler but that it is "not the cause of the issue" and they replaced my radiator because the transmission cooling line was bad and supposedly flushed 10 gallons of fresh coolant through the system.I paid them and picked up my car, drove it not even a mile down the road and was still smelling burning oil so I checked the coolant tank and found more oil in the tank so I took it back to Kenny's immediately and told them. They said it was just some residual oil from the repairs, that more might come out as I drove around and that I should bring it back up soon for another flush. The attitude we got from Bill was very unprofessional and rude.Fast forward to May and I am once again experiencing the same issues so I took it back up to Kenny's for another inspection. This time the paperwork states that the engine oil cooler has failed and is leaking oil in to the cooling system and they want to charge me again for the repairs as this is a "separate issue", but this issue was stated on the first set of paperwork. Again, Bill was rude and unprofessional on the phone and was making snide comments about my father-in-law.I came up to pay for the inspection and pick up my car, I requested to speak with Kenny, the owner, whenever he was available and was told that that would be pointless and that he would side with what his technicians say before a customer. Prior to picking up the car, I was driving past Kenny's everyday on my way to work and never noticed that my car had moved. Also, when I got home and popped my hood I noticed that the coolant reservoir cap was not even screwed on to the tank and was just sitting underneath the hood. I was recommended to this shop by multiple members of the community and am greatly disappointed with the type of service I received.

I bring my car from Grand Rapids, MI to Kenny’s because I trust him and his staff to find the issue(s) going on with my vehicle and fixing them so I can have peace of mind. Their pricing is always fair and I will continue to bring my car there. It’s all about great service for me!

I bring all of my vehicles to Kenny for everything from basic maintenance that I don’t feel like doing myself, to major services. He is accommodating of my wide range of vehicles from a Nissan Skyline to a Chevy Volt, and even my VW Toureg. Kenny’s guys can do it all and are always professional from start to finish. Highly recommend if you’re even remotely in the area, I drive 40 minutes just to not have to deal with other shops and know they will handle everything without me having to worry.

Quick turn around and great service on an alignment for my old BMW I just rebuilt the rear suspension on.Recently had another item on a car I couldn't take care of myself. My current Cadillac STS needed a new radiator and AC condenser. After replacing the condenser I needed a shop to charge the AC. Kenny's got it in and out quick and the price was about what I expected.I do most of my own work but for those things I can't do I will keep taking them back to Kenny's!

Kenny, Mike, Bill, and his entire crew of certified technicians are the best in the business. I've had a number of my vehicles serviced at Kenny's at this point ranging from basic tire mounting, full suspension overhaul, and even transmission/clutch work.There's no one else in the area I would ever trust with my vehicles, do yourself a favor and take your cars to Kenny if you want it done correctly, and honestly.

I primarily worked with Mike, but the other gentlemen working there with whom I came into contact were friendly, welcoming, professional, and positive.Upon inspection of my vehicle, I received a printed, detailed description with verbal explanation of the needed repairs. All of my questions were answered until I was totally knowledgeable. Every item included an exact cost of labor and parts. (Upon completion, there was no attempt to increase any of those prices.)I was given a time frame for the work completion. It was actually finished sooner.Honesty and respect are paramount with me. I definitely received them from Kenny's!

On the advice of a friend I drove out of my way to take my van to Kenny’s for repairs. It turned out to be stellar advice. Our experience with Bill at Kenny’s was the kind of customer care that you don’t see much anymore. He took care of our van, but he also got to know us as people. The people at Kenny’s are honest, kind, straightforward, and most importantly THEY KNOW CARS!! I will be back, and I’ll be telling my friends and family to go to Kenny’s as well.

I had my car towed to Kenny's because it wouldn't start. Although I hadn't used them before, my mom has and was always happy with the service. When I called in about it ahead of time, they let me know they wouldn't be able to look at it for a week or so (I appreciated them telling me that ahead of time) and how much it cost to diagnose a non-starting car. They texted me exactly a week later to let me know it started just fine for them, but when they put it on the lift they saw part of my subframe had rusted and broken completely in half. He let me know it was not safe to drive. They did not even mention fixing it (I'm sure because realistically it wouldn't be worth it being an older car and all), and didn't charge me to diagnose the non-starting issue since it started just fine for them. I appreciated the honesty so when I get a new car, I'll definitely be seeing them when it needs service.

Kenny’s auto is not the easiest or most convenient place for me to get to. I have to get to and on 275, then go up M5, all through Walled Lake, etc. It takes me a good 25-30 minutes to get there, and I pass a lot of other mechanics on my way in. Not convenient at all.You know what’s far less convenient? Having your car not function properly because it hasn’t been maintained or repaired correctly. Having to pay thousands of dollars to dishonest mechanics who do more work than is needed, or replace unnecessary parts and perform unneeded maintenance or service. Having to deal with delays and excuses from lesser shops as to why your vehicle isn’t fixed after the work they did. I say all this from personal experience.I drive all the way to see Kenny, Mike, and Bill because they’re honest, reliable, and they know what they’re doing. I can trust them with my cars which I am extremely picky about. Kenny’s is the ONLY place I will take my Corvette to. They used to have pretty good popcorn too.So while I generally won’t spend a half hour in the car driving to get an oil change, I do it without hesitation when something else is needed because I know it will be done correctly and the peace of mind alone that comes from that is worth the trip.

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.

by Tom Hager on Kenny's Lakes Area Auto

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

by Nancy Smith on Kenny's Lakes Area Auto

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. I am very pleased with the level of service I receive at their shop. I strongly recommend you try their service next time your car needs attention. You won't be disappointed.

Kenny and his team took great care in finding what was wrong with my Jeep and getting it fixed in a timely manner. - From Facebook Reviews

by Ally Cohen on Kenny's Lakes Area Auto

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. - From Google Reviews

by Rodney Martin on Kenny's Lakes Area Auto

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. - From Google Reviews

by Pete Mullin on Kenny's Lakes Area Auto

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. - From Google Reviews

by Mike Johnson on Kenny's Lakes Area Auto

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

by Tom Libertiny on Kenny's Lakes Area Auto

Kenny and his team did awesome work on my car's transmission and differential! Professional, thorough, friendly service. I'm a client for life. Highly recommend them. - From Google Reviews

by Lee Helpingstine on Kenny's Lakes Area Auto

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
