Luxury Auto Repair

Redefining the Way You Think About Automotive Repair

When we talk about Luxury Auto Repair, we are not just referring to the brand or make of your vehicle, we're referring to the way we care for you.  With a comfortable waiting area away from the hustle and bustle, you'll be able to feel comfortable and watch a movie, enjoy a snack, or grab a coffee.  

Even when you're stranded here on vacation, we want you to have a good time.  We have to make the best of it don't we?  We have outdoor games like giant Jenga, Tik Tac Toe, and Yard Yahtzee. 

If you're stuck passing by hours and hours of your time, you can relax in our extensive garden, pet the kitties, or feed the chickens!
