Auburn Car Repair & Offroad

Honest and reliable repairs, maintenance and upgrades. Family owned in Auburn for 17+ years!

Auburn Car Repair & Offroad is an independent automotive repair shop in Auburn, WA. We have been family owned in the same location for over 18 years. Our goal is to provide our customers with excellent quality and timely repairs, at fair prices. We can handle anything from oil changes and routine maintenance, to engine and transmission replacements... and everything inbetween. We also do 4x4 work; lift kits, wheels & tires, custom suspension and axle work, bumpers, winches, diesel performance, etc.

We will be CLOSED February 3rd through February 7th. We are currently booking appointments into the week of February 10th. John and crew are racing at the King of the Hammers, called by some the Toughest Offroad race in the world. If you're interested, there's lots of information and schedule on Monday we will be qualifying, and our race is on Wednesday. will have LIVE coverage of all events.

Who is getting out Wheeling this weekend? We'll be at Snow Jam 2020. Post up your rig and where you're headed to play!

Sweet set of completely custom TR Beadlock Wheels for a customer. He loved the look of his factory JL Rubicon wheels, and we asked TrailReady if they'd take on the project of converting them, they didn't hesitate. We're all very happy with the outcome!

Our holiday hours will be as follows: We will be closed Dec. 23,24,25, and Dec. 31/Jan 1. Hope you all have a Merry Christmas and a safe New Years. And if you get out and play in the snow that's hitting the mountains, post up some pictures!

Something a little bit different than the shop today. Super clean '64 Chevy II wagon getting some steering performance restored with a box from Red Head Steering Gears Inc..

I definitely preach a lot of preventive maintenance on this page, but if your vehicle ends up beyond that point, we do the most major of repairs as well. With the crazy price of new vehicles these days, sometimes an engine or transmission replacement is a cost-effective way to get many more years out of that vehicle. We do engine and transmission replacement, rear differential overhauls and upgrades, etc. It's definitely been 'motor week'... for a couple of weeks now!

We will be closed this Friday, and limited service on Thursday, while John and crew compete at the Ultra4 Racing Nationals in Reno. If you are interested in following along, the qualifying and racing will be broadcast via live stream at The schedule can be found on the same website.

Another quick-lube joint fail. They ALMOST got this oil change right... Looks like they got all the steps except putting the drain plug back in, now it gets a new engine! 🤣😂😜 Please support your local shop, whether it's us or not, and have a professional technician work on your car, not a lube monkey.

All set up at the Auburn Outlet Collection Touch-A-Truck & Safety Fair. Grab the kiddos and come on out and say HI!

It's been a crazy summer for us here, we keep knocking 'em out and I haven't posted anything recently. Here's a few pics from this last week. If you need any work done before sending your kids back to school, give us a call and set up an appointment.

Today marks 23 years I've been showing up to work at this same spot. Sometimes it feels like it's been longer, sometimes it feels like it's all happened in blink. We work hard to provide great service for our customers, and I'm thankful for each and every one of you! Couldn't be as successful as we are without great techs and employees, so thank you to everyone who has helped!

Do you know we do FREE brake inspections? Also, if we do your oil change/lube service, you ALWAYS get a free multi point inspection by an ASE certified technician. not just a 'grease monkey'. This vehicle was driven in with 'brake noise', when I moved it in the parking lot, the brake pad literally fell out of the caliper and wheel, this has obviously been grinding a LONG time.

We will be closed Thursday, July 4th and Friday, July 5th. Everybody be safe and post up your pictures next week if you did something fun!

It's been a busy Spring here at the shop, haven't posted much lately. Here's some random shop photos of some projects we've had. Summer time is close, schedule an appointment for a free vehicle inspection before you take off on that Summer road trip!

Off Track Motorsports

We've been home from Reno for a couple of days and finally getting a chance to sit down and write up a report on our weekend and recap our year. We were headed to Wild West Motorsports Park in third place in the Ultra4 Racing National Points chase. My goal for the weekend was to drive fairly conservative, while pushing a little, to get a good qualifying spot and finishing position and to maintain our position in points.

We arrived at the track mid-day Thursday and were able to unload, get our pit set up, and rip off a couple of test and tune laps. Friday AM was practice. I had my son Conner in the car with me, starting to get a feel for the co-dog seat, which he's slowly going to be working his way into. A couple of laps in and the spotter came over the radio that something was amiss. We pulled off and found the 3 link mount on the frame had ripped off. A quick run up to vendor row and RuffStuff Specialties had the mount we needed and gave it to us out of their booth. With some help from my crew and the guys at Sexton Offroad, we had the 4580 back in race shape in no time.

Friday afternoon was qualifying. I've been getting more comfortable in car at each race, here in Reno I felt I had finally found my rhythm and a good pace in the rock sections. I felt I was driving safe but aggressive, and set a pretty good lap, putting us in a 4th place start for our 6 lap prelim race on Saturday morning. Saturday's prelim I continued getting more and more comfortable, keeping up a good pace in the rock sections, and the tuned LS motor was killing it in the short course and hill climb sections. We picked up a spot, finishing 3rd in the prelim, and would be starting on the inside of 2nd row behind Vaughn Gittin Jr. and Jimmy Jack for the main.

Main event time. 7 laps. Starting behind the big dogs in the class.... no pressure. A pace lap, coming down the big hill in front of packed grand stands, green flag drops, we hit the rocks and it's game on. Over the rocks, through the short course, up the big hill, I'm in dust, I'm actually keeping up with the top guys in the class... I'm in awe a little bit, and then it catches me. Coming down the big hill, back into the short course, I'm in Jimmy's dust with Matt Howell hot on my tail. I can't see a THING. I lift a little bit try to spot the hill, the wall, the opening onto the short course.... nothing. I stay in it and end up catching the concrete K-rail on the right side of the track with right front tire, up and on top of the concrete wall, stay in the throttle, come off the wall on the two left tires, but stay in it and land on all fours. Accelerate up the hill and turn into the downhill rock section when I feel lit, something is wrong. Is it steering? Is it a tire? About the time I felt it, my spotter Roger comes over the radio and says we have a flat right front tire. We get across front rocks and head for the hot pits for a tire change, I know my chances of a podium are over. A quick tire change, and 6 more laps at a good pace, gets us the finish at least in 7th position. I knew we were still in a good spot for the National points chase, but no chance of a trophy for this race.

At the awards ceremony Saturday night, we were awarded trophies for our 3rd place overall finish in the Ultra 4 Racing West Coast series, as well as a 3rd place overall finish in the 4500 class National Points chase. This was our first year racing the whole series in 4500 class, and we've made some great friends at the races and are having a great time. We'll be back next year and are already excited to start prepping for King of the Hammers.

As always, not a single bit of this would ever be possible without family, friends, employees, sponsors, and everybody else who helps is out. I'm happy that my incredible wife Jen and family has been able to come to a couple of races, and hopefully my oldest Tanner can make a race or two next year, he's at that tough age starting out living on his own so harder to take vacation time. My best friend and co-driver Jesse has been along for this whole ride, and couldn't ask for a better partner inside the car. HUGE shout out to all my crew, who help prep the car on their own time and weekends, who take time off from work and burn personal vacation to come racing. Ian my crew chief, who's brain never shuts off, I'm so thankful for all you do. Roger, Josh, Jeremy, Kendrick, Aaron, Richard, Nick, Bryan, Mark, you guys all kick ass. My guys at the shop who come racing when they can, and stay home to keep work going when I'm gone. Also, my brother Will, thank you for your support and all your help. Jordan Townsend, thanks for building such a kick ass car!

Lastly, I've gotta thank all my sponsors. I run the best products possible to try and ensure our success. Yukon Gear & Axle has been a friend in the industry for over two decades, and I am incredibly honored to represent them in this arena of motorsports. 602abcWATER is my brothers company, and incredibly grateful for the support. TR Beadlock Wheels are simply the best there is, 100% made in the USA. Milestar Tires is a relative newcomer to the light truck market, but we've been running them for over a year with very good results. Master-Pull Recovery Gear, we hate it when we have to use it, but again it's nothing but the best. Auburn Car Repair & Offroad, Vision X, Red Head Steering Gears Inc., Two Beers Brewing Co. ARB 4x4 Accessories - USA Office, Fox Racing Shocks, AUBURN AUTO MACHINE, CRAWL Magazine, WARN, Summit Machine, Inc., Imagecraft Sign & Graphics, thank you for everything!!!
