Vehicles take us to the jobs that support our families, they bring us home for the holidays, take us on first dates and family vacations. The best moments in life are brought to you by the family car, and our greatest calling here at Kindred Auto is to keep those moments coming!
Our clients are looking for transparency, honesty, and the ability to work with a local company that cares about them. We want to bring old fashioned service into the 21st century.
Established in 2010, Kindred Automotive began as Christian Family Automotive before rebranding in 2018. We are a faith based, family owned and operated business with a focus on building long-term relationships with our clients. Our goal is to empower you through education and conversation to make the best choice for your vehicle based on your goals for its longevity.
Robert fell in love with Matthews, NC well over a decade ago, so the decision to open Kindred Automotive here was an easy one. Although cars have always been a hobby for him, serving families and children is where he really comes alive. He has spent the last 16 years working in the children’s ministry at his church where he enjoys being animated and engaging with the kids. Robert is married to Jessica, who is passionate about foster care and adoption and works in the field of autism research. They have an awesome 12 year old daughter through adoption and love exploring their community.
Our Customers Say...
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!
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!
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.
Over the next few weeks we will launch live car-related clinics that anyone will be able to tune…
