Our Story

Here at  Automotive we have repaired personal vehicles, fleet vehicles, sports and racing vehicles, trailers, and some RV vehicles. So, no matter what you have odds are we have the experience to repair it. Also, we don’t think you should have to take out a mortgage to have your car repaired. That’s why we spend the time to find the best pricing on quality parts and materials to save our customers money. That doesn’t mean that we are using inferior quality parts. We only install parts that meet or exceed manufacturer specifications, and we check all our parts for quality before they are installed.

In addition to our staff, equipment, training, and quality parts we have one of the best warranties offered in the industry. Our warranty is 2 years/24 months and is nationwide through over 5000 federated backed shops. The program contains over 27,000 shops nationwide and covers federated car care, Napa car care, and advanced auto repair shops. If you’re in California and your car fails due to a part we installed it will be taken care of and we stand behind it. We will even put you in a hotel while your vehicle is being repaired. We do what’s necessary to go above and beyond for our customers.

Took wife’s car in for oil change and some other maintenance. Brett was very knowledgeable and did a great job taking care of us. He let us know that we will need new brakes and tires soon but both can wait until next service. Promptly got us quotes that seem very fair and we’ll certainly be back.

My new go to mechanic shop. They went above and beyond. Even let me use a car to run around while they did an oil change and fixed my car. Give them a try for any of your auto repair needs. Highly recommend. Much better experience than the other mechanic shops ive used over the years in wickliffe and Euclid.
