Marty A. from Corvallis, OR on 10/31/2014 and their testimonial is:
"I moved to Corvallis about a year and a half ago and I began to look at reviews for a good auto mechanic. There are several shops with good reviews. The first one I tried was Ken's and he did a great job fixing my Dakota problem. With the second problem, I tried another shop to replace an alternator. The third time, I took my Trailblazer to a third shop (that had good reviews) with a severe loss of power problem. That shop had it for a week trying different things to isolate the problem. They finally said they thought (but weren't sure) that it was a sticky cam sprocket, put a quart of Seafoam in a fresh oil change and said to run it for awhile to see if it loosened up. I drove it for a few days but decided to take it to Ken's for a second opinion. He had some different ideas and within a day isolated the problem to a clogged catalytic converter (big difference from the other shop diagnosis!). The repair was made the next work day (Monday) and I got my power back. In addition to that problem, the blocked catalytic converter created so much back pressure and heat that it cracked my exhaust manifold. Ken's quickly isolated that problem and made that repair also. That one took a couple of days because of broken bolts, but they didn't charge me for the full amount of labor. During this repair process, I also got to know Ken and the shop a little better. It's a mid-sized shop, which I like because its more personal than a larger shop, but enough experienced mechanics to get the work done. I actually like knowing my mechanic because it builds trust. There are certainly ripoffs out there and I know that if my wife has to take a car in without me, she can trust Ken's, too. I also learned that Ken and his mechanics have decades of combined experience which allowed him to isolate my actual problem (It was a $400 lesson that I paid to the other shop). I've done many of my own repairs over the years, but cars just get more and more complicated for me. I HIGHLY recommend Ken's Care Care. Hope that helps you decide where to ta"
