"Awesome Service & Reliable Mechanic!"

"My transmission was acting up so I brought it into Kern's. They inspected and confirmed that I needed a new transmission and they found that it was still covered under warranty! So they arranged to get it to the dealer to get it fixed under warranty! I like that they just took care of it for me!  :0)"

  • Best Auto Shop in Pierce County

    I have a 2007 Ford Edge with 67k miles on the odometer. The car was purchased when my late husband and I lived in Mesa, AZ, Since m y return to Washington, Kern has taken care of my auto. I belong to Kern's VIP club which helps me maintain the vehicle. Thursday November 15th I took my car in for oil change, new wiper blades and get the vehicle ready for winter. Darius and Shyanne told me I wasn't ready for an oil change saving me money. That's why I will always take my car to Kerns. Anywhere else the oil would have been changed but honesty and integrity is the norm for Kerns.

  • Great Affordable Service

    I’ve been having my truck serviced at the dealer because it was under warranty. My truck was due for a 60,000 mile service and I found out that I was able to get better service at the Kern’s for half the price at the dealership. Thank you Kern’s!!

  • Very Impressed!

    I took my car to Kerns because I got tired of getting the runaround from the dealership, including paying for unnecessary things. They did an excellent job and were upfront about what needed and did not need to be done! Will not take my car anywhere else! Jo

    This was our first experience with Kerns Auto Care. They were very friendly and took care of the service very efficiently, quickly and we were on our way within an hour! Their BG service combined with their own warranty is a great way to take care of your car and drive it for years! Highly recommended!

    I have been a customer for approximately 6 years. I have a 2007 Ford Edge that will be my last car. Darius, Shyanne, and Kern take such excellent care of my car. They offer outstanding service and fair price, I'd recommend Kern to anybody who requires and wants great service at a fair price.

  • Kern's is Excellent!

    Kern and his staff always take such great care of our vehicles. I've been using them for oil changes for years and now just had them do new brakes and tie rods and a tune up. I'm thankful for the great service and care that I get from the whole staff. Couldn't recommend them more! Incredibly reliable mechanic services.
