For over forty years, Kniesel’s Auto Service Centers have been a family-run business, providing the highest quality auto service, delivering superior customer care, and contributing to our community.
In 1965, Richard Kniesel, Sr. founded Kniesel's Sunrise Automotive with a mission to be recognized as the best choice for auto repair in the Citrus Heights area. Richard Sr. passed his commitment to excellence to his son Gary Kniesel and grandson Brent. We may have changed the name to Kniesel’s Auto Service Centers, but we continue to ensure that honest, quality service and concern for the community guide everything we do.
Our commitment extends to our staff. We employ the best automotive technicians available and offer them full benefits in a safe, healthy work environment. Our technicians are highly trained professionals who have earned ASE and other notable certifications.
We have been part of this community for more than 40 years and are devoted to doing our part to keep it thriving. Brent Kniesel and his wife, Jody, get involved in the community personally through their church and community organizations. We also donate our time and resources to programs here in Citrus Heights, including youth sports leagues, schools, the women’s shelter, and the American Cancer Society. We reach beyond our city to help improve quality of life for those outside the U.S. through projects we support in Mexico and Rwanda.
