Unmatched Customer Service


Highly recommend Christian Family Automotive for your car repair needs. It is refreshing to find a shop that truly cares about its customers and does not try to take advantage. As a woman, I am often worried that I am being over charged or told there are repairs that don’t really need to be done. At Christian Family Auto, I do not have to worry about this. They take the time to thoroughly explain the issues and make recommendations on what needs to be fixed immediately vs what can wait. There was one repair that I was unfamiliar with, so Robert took the time to walk me through what it was and how it impacted the car. Their level of customer service is unmatched!

Flexible Scheduling


Great business! I scheduled a pre-purchase inspection and they were able to accommodate my schedule just a few days in advance. The dealership did not have my car ready at the scheduled time and Kindred was extremely flexible with changing my appointment time twice and when I arrived late, they still got me right in (and it was New Years Eve). They performed a top notch thorough inspection in about 1hr and charged a competitive price of $80. They immediately texted me a detailed report of the inspection findings along with photos. I was able to make an informed decision before I decided to purchase the car. They were all professional, friendly, accommodating and knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend Kindred. I live out of town but if I was local, I would use their services regularly!

Reasonable Pricing


Rob and his team have serviced our 3 vehicles over the last few years. We moved to SC from MD several years ago. I had a pretty reliable mechanic there but needed one close by. Looking for a mechanic we could trust was not easy. We did a Google search and came across Christian Family Auto, now Kindred Auto, and we couldn’t have discovered a better mechanic to work with. We had a Solara, Jeep Liberty and a Lexus is250c. They have serviced all 3. Their pricing I found reasonable and the service above par. Good business to deal with.
