My experience there was very odd... although the $$ seemed rather favorable... everything else was very drawn out and in the end incomplete. Day 1 - Got a quote. Seemed like great people I went there for new brakes because mine were screeching horribly -- a job long overdue. They informed me I needed two new serpentine belts, front brake and rotors, and a bit of muffler work. I had heard my back brakes quite a bit.. and a friend had even showed me how ate up they were, but they insisted I didn't need them. They never did call when the inspection was completed like we had asked -- so that was rather curious. Day 2 - Brought truck in to get repaired. My wife had to loom around the area with our children waiting for their call.. and they never did call her. She walked back to check on the status to find it done. We needed an oil change because we hardly had any oil in it, I guess [not car folks as you can tell] so they brought our truck next door which was convenient. When my wife drove home, she said it made these crazy screeching noises from the hood and said the brakes were squealing down the hills still. We checked it out after she parked and the car wouldn't start. Had to charge the battery for a few hours. We called the guys to ask about the screeching.. thinking they left the radio on or something and that's why the battery died. They said the screech was because oil had gotten on the belt when they replaced it but it should eventually subside. We had errands to do and it was.... such a bother -- the noise. Every time we started and went again, it sounded like we were dragging a dinosaur.... Friends later told us the serpentine belt is what charges the battery, so that explained why our car died when we got home. Day 3 - Went back in the morning to find out the serpentine belt wasn't tight enough. He did it on the spot -- very nice. Asked about the brakes/screeching -- said they looked fine when he had done them. Day 4 - Still had dinosaur screeching from the hood every time we started, and the brakes STILL SCREECHED. They offered to tighten the belt on spot again....and insisted the back brakes were fine and perhaps it was a spring had come off but it should be fine. A week later ... still screeching brakes... Can't say I'll go there again.. even if the price seemed better than my dealership. Having to check back half a week to have them finish their job, and practically beg them to actually change out my brakes... is worth the extra money of having it paid more to have the job done right. Ain't nobody got time for that...

I went there to replace my battery and even though they didn't have it in stock they had someone deliver it to their store within the hour. It was quick service the owners are absolutely amazing!! They make you feel like you've known them your whole life, I would go back there time and time again.

These guys are great. They are reasonably priced, quick and honest. I have had them do work on my Saab exhaust and it was twenty bucks, 6 months later it is still fine. Also did all my front end work on my 3500 gmc truck and it is great. I highly recommend this shop to anyone.

Walked in and got my car fixed fast, excellent service! I have brought previous vehicles in for exhaust work, great price and haven't had to return to get repeat service. Would gladly recommend!

These people saved me about $900 today. Need I say more? I probably don't have to, but I will. Instead of replacing an entire exhaust system, these folks mended a hole in a pipe. Without an appointment, no less! And these people are as nice as can be. Oh yes. I will recommend this business to everybody. And I hope Santa puts something extra in their stockings.

My muffler had been extremely loud and obviously broken and disconnected. I brought it to Kenwood Muffler on a Saturday morning just hoping they could get it done in a reasonable amount of time. I was not aware that the amount of time would be a measly 25 minutes!! I barely had time to run to the bank by the time the vehicle was off the lift and quiet as a church mouse. Cost was very acceptable and comparable to other places. The exhaust pipe decided to break again just over two weeks later, only this time a few feet farther back than the first break. I call on a Monday morning to see if I could get the vehicle in and he says to come on down and he will take care of it. I figured that I would be paying the same amount as before, seeing as the break was not their welding mistake but just a terribly rotted out exhaust pipe. The second fix literally took only 10 minutes total and I walked out of there paying only TWENTY DOLLARS and being an extremely happy person. I would recommend Kenwood Muffler to anyone needing work done on their exhaust system; their friendliness was very welcoming, the speediness is fantastic for a person not having much time to sit around waiting, and you can't beat the price...5+ Stars!

I went to Kenwood Muffler and Brake to get an exhaust pipe replaced. Normally when I go to get my car fixed, the place I go tries to rip me off or tell me something serious is wrong with my car to get more money out of me because I'm a young woman, but that didn't happen with this place and I was very pleased with that. I am also very pleased with the work done on my car and I will return there if I need other work done!
