"“You Can Tell He Loves What He Does”"

"We were having issues with our BMW. Sydney and his team did a thorough job to determine the extent of the issue. He always gave us very thorough information about the problem and several recommendations on how to proceed. He also helped identify the manufacturing recalls that needed to be repaired. We found Sydney to be extremely knowledgeable and honest, and he does great work. You can tell he loves what he does."

""Highest Recommendation""

"Sydney and the Kudos team have been taking care of our 2004 SL 500 for more than a year now. We have been extremely satisfied them and they receive our highest recommendation. During this time period the car has had several major issues. The Kudos team has methodically and professionally worked through each situation with great tenacity and solved each problem. Sydney has kept in close contact with us through the process with phone calls and text messaging, sometimes 2 and 3 times a day! He has also saved us a ton of money compared to the Mercedes dealers in the area. If you are looking for an organization that will treat you fairly and resolve your auto issue at a fair price, choose Kudos. You will be very happy with your decision."

""I Trusted Their Judgement and Expertise""

"Regarding my first visit to Kudo’s and working with David I would like to express the following experiences: I brought my 1998 740i BMW (118K miles) in for handling and radio problems. David handled my service write-up in a very thorough manner and suggested a complete diagnostic work-up to evaluate my vehicle’s overall condition… known and unknown issues. The diagnostic report indicated more serious issues that even I knew of. David and Syd both reassured me that if I placed my vehicle in their hands I would be very well pleased at the results. I trusted their judgement and expertise. The outcome was to put it simply, AMAZING! I received my vehicle in great shape with all the minor and major problems gone and the performance of the vehicle was almost as it was when I originally purchased it in 1998. What an absolute joy to feel the power and performance of this incredible vehicle again. Kudo’s to Kudo’s!"

"Syd and his team are great people!"

"Syd and his team are great people. I bought a car that ended up having a lot of issues right after i bought it. Syd analyzed my car for a full day and gave me his honest opinion that i should hold the dealer accountable for the car rather than try to fix my car. he dint charge me a penny for it but helped me anyway he could! i fully recommend syd and his team!"

"The guys are the BEST you can find"

"I had a problem no one could figure out so i went to Kudos the guys here are the BEST u can find.. They will figure out anything and fix it right … Great customer service and excellent work.. I will definitely be back"


"Syd could not be more honest and fair"

"I have a 2004 bmw 545i. A dreamcar for me. It has a lot of systems that are very technical and as I’ve learned nobody in town could fix EXCEPT Syd and John at Kudos. Syd could not be more honest and fair. I’ve owned this car 6 years and I tried several dealers and other independent shops before I found Kudos. If you own an import car, you will not find a better shop hands down."


"Syd and his team are the best!"

"Syd and his team are the best! Needed someone to look at my car last Sat, bad growling noise in the rear of vehicle. He was the only shop open that took my car. He is very good at what he does and you can tell he really cares about your vehicle and safety. It doesn’t leave his shop until its right. He worked thru monday until he had it done to make sure i could go to work tuesday! He is not only a great mechanic but also a good person! Glad i found you Syd! Another new customer."


"Syd runs a good shop"

“Syd runs a good shop. He is incredibly knowledgeable about any number of foreign nameplates and seems to have a bit of a following among exotic car owners. We don’t own an exotic car but we do own imports. He recently did a great job on a tricky electronic component rebuild and a run of the mill timing belt/water pump replacement.”


"The owner knows his stuff, that’s for sure!"

“The owner knows his stuff, that’s for sure! He is very thorough when checking out a car; almost too thorough, because it really hit me in the wallet. One practice that he had that I didn’t appreciate was billing us several hours for the diagnosis. This occurred when we told him that we didn’t want to buy $3K worth of work from him at once for a 2003 Lexus RX300 with 100K miles on it without having a hard think about whether we should just sell the car instead. We decided to keep the vehicle though but break up the work into a few months worth and he gave it back to us as a discount on the next job, so I guess that’s okay. Just something people should be aware of…

The car is running great now and will be a nice car for our daughter to drive for another few years until she is in a position to pick out (and pay for) her own car.

Also of note is the fact that this place can be a little difficult to find. Its sort of at the corner of Jungermann and Old SR 94, but it is tucked behind a building that faces SR94. Go S on Jungermann, turn West on 94, and take the driveway right next to the bank’s driveway. Follow the road around behind the strip mall and you’ll find Kudos.”


"Honest, Knowledgeable and Professional"

“When other professional mechanics recommend that I try Kudo’s Auto, you know that Kudo’s is doing many things right! An honest, knowledgeable, and professional approach to doing business and getting my old diesel Mercedes Benz back on the road. The transmission shifts smoother and quieter than ever. Their knowledge of both older and newer cars is deep and I would recommend that anyone who needs a mechanic for their European model give these folks a call.”


"Syd is Fantastic"

“Syd is fantastic. I had been hearing this noise from my Porsche Cayenne for over a year and my previous mechanic said they never heard a thing. Syd found the problem right away which had magnified from being left unfixed for such a long period of time. This guy really know his stuff and he is great to work with. Because of Syd’s work I think I’m going to keep my Cayenne for at least another year. If you’ve got an import Kudo’s is the place to be!!!”

"I would highly recommend!"

“I would highly recommend Kudos. Syd is unbelievable at fixing the hard issues and always looks for the most cost effective way to get it done. I have a 35 year old Porsche 911SC that Syd has been working on and off again for the last 2 years getting it running like new. With a 35 year old car there are a lot of challenges and Syd has always been able to figure it out. Syd will text me and give me updates on how things are going and even a couple days after I pick the car up. Even getting parts for an old car isn’t always the easiest and Syd but he has always found the right part at a fair price. Go see Syd and you won’t take your car anywhere else.”
