What our customers are saying:

Professionalism, Punctuality, Quality, Value

The McKenna team did an outstanding job on my 2004 Honda Accord EX. My car had a lot issues and they took care of everything providing excellent service in every detail and I can say that my 17 year old car is running super now. They found some problems that I did not even know about and fixed them. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for honest and dependable work on their vehicle . THANK YOU !!!
