Was referred to kennedy when my repair shop couldn't figure out problem. Dropped Ranger off at shop open, didnt hear from them until i called at 20 min to close to find out the 4x4 didnt work because of a "broken circuit board" and they could fix it tomorrow. Okd repair for $575(!), and when I inquired about ABS was told it was another $100 to diagnose that. Despite me asking for both repairs when...

Went as planned. They had told me up front that if that was what it was, they would keep the car overnight as the part would have to come from out of state.

Kennedy Transmission did an awesome job on my AC! They found the problem and fixed it for less than half of what my dealership quoted me. They also honored the discount for AL members even though I didn't have a way to print out the coupon. This was my first experience with this company and I would go there again and certainly recommend them. Very personable and professional.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
My AC was blowing warm air out on hotter days. Definitely defeats the purpose on a hot day!

Very well. They are very professional, pleasant and accommodating. We live in Iowa and my son goes to college in Minneapolis. He called me on a Sunday morning from the side of the road. We did not have any experience with any automobile mechanics in Minnesota, as we live in Iowa. I found Kennedy on Angies lists. We had the car towed there. Mark explained things very well every step of the way. The...

They quickly diagnosed the issue as an electrical connection not being made rather than a major issue with the transmission itself. The whole experience was great. They were very professional, courteous, and honest. We would absolutely use them again in the future.

Horrible. The worst customer service experience of my life.  Here are the details that made the experience horrible. 1) I called the phone number for the shop in Fridley MN and found out the hard way that my truck ended up in south Minneapolis. 2) Took 3 days longer to do than I was told. 3)Charged more than $1000 more than the high end estimate.  And they didn't even put a fluid cooler on it like...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Installed a remanufactured transmission in my Dodge Ram. I was given the estimate 2600-3200. When it was finally finished 3 days later  than I was told it would be, the bill exceeded the high end estimate by over a thousand dollars.

Mark was great about explaining everything that needed to be done. The total repair came in under estimate.  I would highly recommend Kennedy Transmission on Lake Street.

They were able to fix the problem, the car works fine now. They were very professional, very friendly, and called us with any questions. We felt very well-served. Every time there was a problem with ordering a part, they called and explained it. The only time there was a problem was when they couldn't get a hold of a part and they explained to us that it was because of the age of the vehicle. We w...
