Mr. Richard Kniesel Sr. founded Kniesel's Sunrise Automotive in 1965. Since then it has transformed into what is known today as Kniesel's Auto Service Centers. From "Grandpa" to his son Gary Kniesel, to his grandson Brent, the torch has passed. Each generation has equipped the next for valuable service to the community of Citrus Heights and surrounding areas. Kniesel's is a AAA approved repair facility. We have excellent standing with the Bureau of Automotive Repair. Brent Kniesel and his wife Jody teach Sunday school at their church and have leadership responsibilities there.
