DO NOT BRING YOUR CAR HERE. I don't know about the quality of work they do, but they are swindlers. I took my car in to have a bracket replaced on my car, and they told me I needed a whole new muffler, for over $200, and pointed out the 'heat damage' that I couldn't even see. I took it for a second opinion and the muffler was fine, IN FACT, when I described what I had been told, the mechanic knew right away I had gone to Kelly's, apparently they are notorious for fixing what isn't broken. Always get a second opinion, I just saved about $150.

It would be great if other's would put their opinions & recommendations as to what auto mechanics are fair & honest here in Paradise. By helping each others out it would save us all a lot of money.

Kelly does great work and its worth EVERY PENNY. Not only does he make sure the job is done right the first time and backs up his work 150%. I took my truck to him when I was in high school. Of the mechanics I had dealt with at the time he was the only one who listened to what I had to say even tho I am "a girl" Most mechanics act like girls can't or don't know anything about vehicles and refuse to hear what they say. Kelly didn't blow off every word I said about my trucks symptoms and from those symptoms he diagnosed the problem very accurately. I know every business has its share of customers who are just never satisfied as well as those who would rather pinch a penny than pay for necessary quality. In the end its more expensive to pay for shotty work over and over than to go to the place whose work is worth well over what they charge

Awww.....you sound like one of those resentful "recovered" addicts who are only clean because you're going thru some program. Dont be jealous of other people & assume everyone is on drugs because you cant be. Suck it up and leave people alone.

Kelly rips people off with used parts. He "tried" to replace my cat and replaced it with stolen parts and it stopped working a week later. When I went back to him he denied the whole thing about ever even seeing me. Since I payed in cash she threw away all the records!!!!! Don't trust him. He's a rip off and will replace with bad parts that won't fix your vehicle.

do not go there!! this is the biggest rip off place on this planet.did you ever hear about those mechanics that make up things and come up with bogus pricing? if you stop in for a smog ck they will make up excuses to rip you off. if you take your car there, then let me sell you a bridge and a three dollar bill. they should not be allowed to do any business anywhere.

I would not trust this spot and if "Kelly" is questioned on anything he will explode yelling and swearing. I would never go here again. Buyer beware! My guess is with business practices like this he will not be around long. There are others in town to have your work done by. I would ask around and if he was the last choice, I would choose not to have the vehicle repaired. Do some checking with the California Bureu of Automotive Repair before trusting a shop.
