I have been going to KC's for all my automotive needs for about 19 years now. They are a group of honest and trustworthy guys. They are fair priced and kind as well. My last instance was an exhaust leak. Mazda wanted 750$ for the part that I needed. Parts and labor would have been close to a thousand dollars. They guys at KCs sent me to another shop in Henderson that dealt specifically with mufflers and exhaust. They sent me away when they could have reeled me in and made a bundle off me. I will continue going to this shop and I highly recommend it to anyone for any mechanical needs.

I was traveling on a road trip and discovered I needed some fluids topped off and that I had some "other" engine needs to be attended to. I was at a gas station on a major road through Boulder City.... and I felt that I needed someone to look at stuff before I headed through the desert. I asked the guy at the pump next to mine and he said: "follow me". He took me to K&C auto, only a few blocks away. There were a couple of guys chatting and having a cup of morning coffee when we pulled up. He explained my situation and asked if I could "leave my car"... um... no. I explained further. I very nice gentleman proceeded to open the hood of my car and shake his head and smile. He immediately realized that I was a female, unknowledgeable of car stuff. We got into a very good conversation and before I knew it he had topped off all my fluids, filled my tires with air, cleaned my battery posts, checked and filed my oil, explained the extra hose that leads to no-where really was ok and most importantly told me what work needed to be done soon and what I needed to do at my next maintenance....

When it was all said and done he said "ok, you're all done!" I asked what my damage would be and he said "nothing" I was floored. NO KIDDING! Wow! He could have really charged me a ton. I was mentally prepared for the "raping" that could have occurred. (ok, bad word).

Anyways, I was so thrilled, I gave him a hug and spilled his cup of hot coffee all over my feet. DAMN! I felt so bad. I offered to buy him a cup of joe but apparently, he had a full pot in the office and did NOT want whatever I would have been able to come up with.

What a great guy! Believe me.... if and when I ever get near there, I will look him up.

I plan to send him a box of 'goodies" (homemade expresso brownies!)

If the world was filled with more good samaritans (a.k.a. guardian angel) we'd all be better off.

Thank you. For being you.

Your car data owned by manufacturers now

Newer Vehicles Generate as Much As 25GB of Data/Hour according to McKinsey.  Now That is Extremely Interesting!  It is also daunting as we now need to know "what data" right?  You also want to know where it is going if anywhere and who owns the data?  All interesting questions that we never thought about.  Just get in and drive, choose a destination and if a light goes off in the dash you call us here at KC's Auto Repair to schedule an appointment.   We want our Boulder City drivers to be informed as always and able to make their choices based on having facts.  This is a big change in the automotive-truck service industry and it really has not hit the news at all, so it is up to us to get you up-to-date and informed.  Here are the facts and where you can find more information!

There seems to be a common misconception among many that if you have an aftermarket/extended warranty, that your car, truck, SUV or Jeep must be taken to a dealership. This is not true. Non-dealership / Independent Automotive repair shops can service and repair your new or UNDER WARRANTY/EXTENDED WARRANTY. As a positive, at our shop you can get fast service and work with highly trained technicians!  We'd love to take care of your vehicle for you and can do so right here at our automotive shop. Repairs by highly rated and trained automotive technicians with dealer rated diagnostic tools, at BETTER PRICING by a shop that knows you!

It is a law that independent automotive repairs shops can maintain and service your warranty. All consumers are protected by the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, that is enforced by Federal Trade Commission (FTC). It prohibits a manufacturer from voiding the new vehicles warranty or a vehicles extended warranty because service was performed by a Non-Dealer/Independent Repair shop.

Per the FTC, “It's illegal for a dealer to deny your warranty coverage simply because you had warranty work or routine maintenance or repairs performed by our automotive shop. Routine maintenance can include anything from oil changes, tire rotations and belt replacement, to fluid checks, flushes, new brake pads and inspections.” It is also important to note that the “Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act makes it illegal for a company to void your warranty or deny coverage under the warranty for the simple cause that you used an aftermarket or recycled part.”

One of the major perks to bringing your vehicle to an independent repair shop is the ability to make your money go further. Many times, warranties will have a limit or a deductible. Our goal is to make your warranty work for you.

Lastly, If you are on the fence about whether or not to purchase an AFTERMARKET or EXTENDED warranty. We suggest opening a savings account for your car and putting back money for possible breakdowns. While warranties are great the limitations can sometimes outweigh the benefits.

Whichever option you may choose we will be there for you every step of the way! We look forward to taking care of your new or under extended/aftermarket warranty, car, truck, SUV or Jeep right here. Give us a call today!



 

TRUE OR FALSE? Until your vehicle is out-of-warranty, it must be serviced by the new car dealer or the factory warranty will be void?

It’s the law that independent repair shops can provide the services to maintain your new car warranty. Consumers are protected by the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, enforced by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), which prohibits a manufacturer from voiding the vehicle warranty because service was done by a non-dealer.
