What our valued customers have to say
*reviews from Google and Yelp
Being Bay Area transplants, finding a trusted mechanic has been tough in the Vegas area. We had taken my fiance’s dad’s old Jaguar to “Purrfect Auto Service” and I really felt like uneasy about their work. They said during their diagnostic they found no other issues with the car, but low and behold, a few weeks later, we start noticing leaks in hoses, as well as coolant/fan issues.
This is when we started to get more serious about what it would take to own and maintain a Jaguar and took our car here. My fiance spoke with the office manager, who explained their processes very clearly and laid out expectations for us. When we got to the shop, I heard the office manager speaking to another customer on the phone and was very impressed by her automotive knowledge, thoroughness, the ownership she took and the customer service she was delivering. She reassured us that Bill and the staff were great at what they did and had the experience to resolve our issue. Our quote was fair, we never felt pushed to make decisions we weren’t comfortable with and the repairs were done with a quick turn-around-time. I think the most important thing for us was that we knew if there were any continued issues with the car, we were reassured we could bring the car back in and they would take responsibility for any repairs they had previously done. Thanks Kensington!
Brought my 2015 Range Rover Sport here for service and brake pads. They were so nice and even gave me a ride while my car was being worked on. I was tired of dealing with the local dealer and receiving low communication. Bill is very experienced and friendly and more importantly an honest person to do business with.
The absolute BEST place in Las Vegas to bring your British vehicles for service and repair!
I can not say enough good things about Bill and his shop! Whether you have a Mini Cooper, a Land Rover, or a Jaguar…this is the only place in town you should even contemplate coming to. I saved a load of money and headaches by bringing my Mini here. If only I would’ve known about this shop before ever stepping food on the Mini dealerships lot, but I never have to worry about that again since I’m now in the loop…
…Since my first visit I’ve been back to get my water pump and engine mount replaced. Once again I was given a ride where I wanted to go and was charged a very modest price. I had a custom grill I’d bought a while back that I realized afterwards would take more work that I thought to install it since it involved removing the front end. Bill was cool enough to install it for free while the water pump was being fixed. Super awesome on his part! And now my car looks that much cooler too!
Thank you Bill and KMC for all your impressive and reliable work!
My wife and I were on a long road trip in our 26 year old Land Rover Defender from Tuscon to Portland, Oregon. At the Hoover Dam I noticed a little play in the steering and decided to get it checked out in Vegas. I googled for LR repair shops and found Kensington. We dropped by unannounced and yet Bill was friendly and helpful, and immediately came out to my truck to take a look. After a thorough once over and a long chat about Landies, we got on our way without an issue thanks to Bill’s experience and knowledge. Highly recommended.
Thank you for taking a good care of my car! Great and fast service. I have done my car here many time and they always did a great job. Will come back for more service.
I’ve been fortunate to own my 1995 Range Rover for most of her life. Know as Lilith, Lily for short. As you can imagine our years together have been full of getting her fixed on top of the general upkeep one does on their vehicles. We’ve been around the block. She is my Millennium Falcon, Trigger, Spirit of St. Louis. Kensington Motors has always been here for us during our time Las Vegas. From a door that will not open anymore to rebuilding a master brake solenoid that is no longer made. Right now, they’re pulling a tape outta her tape deck. I appreciate Bill’s offer to install an 8 track instead.
Highly recommend. Their prices are reasonable. The English humor is free.
Great experience, got in and taken care of same day. Kensington saved me a bunch of money compared to the quote I had gotten from the mini dealership! Thx Bill!!
You can learn a lot about a shop while waiting for your car: I observe them treating all their customers as well as they’ve treated me. Bill Goodman is a master Land Rover mechanic and knows the vehicles nose to tail. Good wrenchmen on the shop floor. Lucky to have Kensington Motor Cars in Las Vegas. FYI, I own a 2004 Land Rover Discovery II.
Bill is genuine, smart and knowledgeable, and his service surpasses any Land Rover dealership. I feel fortunate to have found Kensington.
I ONLY take my MINI to Kensington Motor Cars. They are honest, reliable, helpful and knowledgeable. I had a number of bad experiences at the local MINI dealership and was so relieved to find another shop that can service my car. Thank you so much!
I must admit I was a little hesitate to take my prized automobile to an independent shop that wasn’t a referral. Being in Las Vegas, I was far away from my usual spots in Los Angeles (even though I’ve been a four-year resident of Vegas). Still, I trusted my gut, and the reviews on Yelp and must honestly say I couldn’t be happier. Both Bill and Trish really take care of you. The shop is ultra clean, the service is first rate, and Bill really talks you through the recommended service. Parts had to be shipped in from the UK for my British beauty which made the wait longer than usual, but they kept me abreast every step of the way. And when one part got lost in shipping, they did everything they could to make sure my car was ready on time, and they came through with flying colors.
Again, I would not hesitate to recommend coming here. They have me as a lifetime customer.
Kensington will make sure the repair is done right. That’s the ultimate you could want from the people that work on a vehicle that you care about.
Feels like a small town shop, the owner Bill personally gave me a ride home when I dropped my car off to get work done. They give you detailed explanations of the repairs that need to be done and updates all along the way. These people really know/love Minis and they stand behind their work, which they back up with a 24,000 mile warranty. Great shop.
Bill is extremely knowledgeable and honest. My only regret is I didn’t find this shop earlier!
We bought a used 2011 Mini Cooper S Countryman for our kids…and found Kensington. We’ve only been once but the staff was excellent and the service fast and very affordable. They take the time to really talk to the customer and explain options if your car needs anything. This is going to be our regular spot for service on our Mini. I highly recommend.
No better place than this one for my Mini Cooper! after several disappointing experiences taking my car back to the dealer for service I was so relieved when I found Kensington; I do not mind the drive away from home because I know they are honest and truly deliver on their work. They’ve gone as far as towing my car back to my job, 10 miles away from the shop as a courtesy since the parts to fix my car took a bit longer to arrive and they understood I really needed my car back. It was pretty amazing how they handled the car delivery, no questions asked, they just cared about making sure my car made it back to me and I was a HAPPY customer.
I am so happy I found a car repair place for the mini! Never ever will I go back to the dealer for car service. They are super fast, knowledgeable and very customer oriented. If youre reading these reviews to find the best…you have. Just call. Seriously.
Really happy with my experience. Had to get my oil changed and my break light was on. Stopped by at about 4:30pm and the gentleman at the front desk was super nice and took me on the spot. I just moved here and have always had bad experiences with shops so I wasn’t sure what to expect. After looking at my car he told me my breaks didn’t even need to be changed and that it was just a sensor issue. Oil changed AND they replaced a few small light bulbs that were out for free. They ALSO fixed my busted key (really not sure how they did it, but it works now). Very satisfied and will definitely be back for any needs!
