About Us

How we started and what we are about...

In 2007, Dustin Olde and wife, Eilis McNamara decided to try something new.  Their love of coffee shops and dissatisfaction with auto shop waiting areas and sales tactics led them to create a shop that felt comfortable, clean and accommodating. They purchased a garage at the corner of Kipling and 26th in Lakewood and gutted the waiting area to create something that is unique.  Our customers love the ability to have something nice to drink while they wait for their car.  We have put staff in place that care about our clients and their cars and make sure that customers have an exceptional experience at our business.

I've brought my cars here several times.  This is a trustworthy automotive repair shop.  They only do the work that is needed, provide excellent customer service at a fair price.  It's great having a car mechanic you can trust!
