No distance is too far when you have a dependable and honest mechanic like Leo!
Cottage Grove California
Mark Taylor of Cottage Grove California
"No distance is too far when you have a dependable and honest mechanic like Leo! I have known Leo and Wanda for over 20 years and will not let any other transmission service touch my vehicle. I highly recommend you see Leo at Kennedy Transmission!"
I am grateful for the service I received from Mark.
Joseph N/a of Minneapolis Minnesota
"I didn't even need to bring my SUV to the shop! I called the shop thinking I may need a new transmission cause it was acting up and after talking to Mark for about 10 minutes, he recommended me to start off with the basic (like checking my transmission fluid!). I ended up checking the dip stick and it was BONE DRY. I followed the instructions in my manual and ended up adding 3 quarts of transmission fluid. I called two other transmission shops and they were hesitant to give me any information over the phone and wanted me to bring my vehicle in for servicing (who knows what I would've had to pay). I am grateful for the service I received from Mark. Thanks buddy!"
Service on this level is rare these days.
Steve Ferguson of Minneapolis Minnesota
"I returned to Kennedy after my first visit. Mr Exley was fair and Honest! I came back this time with my car and was treated fairly and with courtesy. Service on this level is rare these days. I have recommended Kennedy to my friends. Keep up the good work!"
They kept me informed and I can not recall people in back but they have been with this firm for many years .
Penn Joslyn of Edina Minnesota
"A very experienced auto person suggested we see Leo at Kennedy Transmission since the type of cars we purchase have transmission problems. 3 that each had new transmission then off to Leo and 2 cars that were fixed each for under $ 500. The last service computer adjustments + new battery and all for under $ 500 . Car done in a day which was appreciated. They kept me informed and I can not recall people in back but they have been with this firm for many years ."
They are extremely friendly, easy to work with, and willing to do what it takes to keep a customer.
Penny Davis of Minneapolis Minnesota
"I can't say enough good things about Kennedy Transmission. I ended up having to bring my car in twice and throughout both repairs, I was kept up to date on what was going on with the vehicle, they worked with me when there were items that I couldn't afford, they explained everything to me in a way that made sense, told me all of my options and gave me overall excellent customer service. They are extremely friendly, easy to work with, and willing to do what it takes to keep a customer. I would recommend them to anyone and will be returning to their shop the next time I need a vehicle repair."
The service they provided was great, they did not try to upsell un-needed parts and they were great to work with, they will be my go to shop if I need any more transmission work.
Fargo North Dakota
Darin Neuschwander of Fargo North Dakota
"My daughters transmission quit without any previous problems, she had it towed to another shop close to her home and they quoted her a price of over $1600 to replace it with a used transmission. We had it brought to Kennedy after talking to Matt, they not only would have been able to replace it with a new transmission for the same price but they doubted it needed to be replaced. In a matter of a couple of days, Matt and his team diagnosed the problem and had her back on the road for less than $500.
The service they provided was great, they did not try to upsell un-needed parts and they were great to work with, they will be my go to shop if I need any more transmission work."

The price was less than expected, and the people were very curtious
Jim Utke of Minneapolis Minnesota
"My wife recently, Nov 2015, took her car to Kennedy Transmission for a vibration problem. The Kennedy Team quickly figured out it was the u-joints that needed replacement. They fixed the car the same day. They also replaced the serpentine belt to get rid of a squeal the car was making. We are very happy with the work performed. The price was less than expected, and the people were very curtious. The car is driving very smooth and the vibration is completely gone and my wife is thrilled."
