Knibbe Automotive gives 1-2 cars per year away to families that need a hand up. This is our way of giving back to the community.  

These cars are fully inspected, repaired, and maintained, and they come with one year of complete repairs and maintenance. These cars are gifts – so we make sure they are immaculate.
