It is our goal to properly repair your vehicle the first time in. We have invested in diagnostic tools designed specifically to assist our technicians in servicing KIA vehicles. Not only do we have the tools for your car, we also have the training. Besides our technicians being ASE Certified, they are also required to continually participate in KIA Certified Technician classes.
