Not everybody knows that Kia had its start in manufacturing in 1944, producing steel tubing, and bicycle parts. In 1951 it started to produce bicycles. Today Kia produces and sells millions automobiles around the world every year, and has extensive business ties with another Korean automobile powerhouse - Hyundai.

Kia produces stylish and economical vehicles that will reliably get you to your destination. If your vehicle needs service or repairs, bring it to our Walnut Creek auto repair garage – we have extensive Kia repair experience, and our nationally ASE certified technicians can provide your Kia with full range of repair and services – from oil service or brake repair, to oil or transmission fluid leaks, shocks and struts replacement, to check engine light diagnostics, timing belt replacement, as well as engine repairs.

Servicing your Kia at our Walnut Creek repair shop fulfills manufacturer requirements to maintain Kia factory warranty.

Like all vehicles, Kia requires regular service to serve you well. We highly recommend regular oil service, not only to maintain factory warranty, but because it truly is the best thing you can do for your car. Engine oil deteriorates due to time, high temperatures, and it picks up all kinds of grime and debris created when hot metal parts work in close proximity. Replacing engine oil (and oil filter) removes these impurities and gives your vehicle motor oil that has proper chemical and mechanical properties – it allows your engine to work with less strain, it lubricates better, and allows the engine to develop more power and extends engine life.
