About Us

Quantum Mechanics provides reliable repairs and services of your car, truck and other vehicles. Over the years Quantum has built a foundation on making sure that every vehicle that leaves the shop, is road safe and can handle all the conditions that the road may have driving forward

Gary Kitchens, owner of Quantum Mechanics, has been in the automotive repair business since 1973, where he opened up his first shop in Albuquerque, right out of high school. Gary's father had a shop just a few miles away, and they both thrived on giving the best service possible to their customers, and actually ended up having a friendly rivalry between the father and son on who could give the better service.

Today, Gary is running Quantum Mechanics with his wife of 32 years, Donna, and his son Andrew. They have been serving the Spokane Valley area for over 9 years as Kars Plus, and just recently combined forces with Quantum Mechanics to give the best service the Spokane Valley can offer. Quantum Mechanics team has over 100 years of combined auto repair experience, and continues to service the Spokane area with all their collective knowledge.

Quantum Mechanics offers a full service shop, and they are always striving to give the best possible service to their customers, and at the best price. Come see for yourself why Quantum Mechanics is rated so highly, they are large enough to serve you, but small enough to care about you as a person.

What Others Are Saying About Us

"The qualified technicians at Quantum Mechanics made my experience stress-free and affordable!  When I got my brakes done, they gave me a competitive service quote that didn't change when billing time came and they didn't try to sell me things I didn't need. I trust the folks at Quantum Mechanics and will be working with them again the next time my car needs service."
