[07/24/21]   To all our loyal customers, as some of you are already aware, on the morning of July 15th we lost Rick Thompson, the rock of Guaranteed Auto Repair and the loving captain of our crew. While we are deeply saddened by the unimaginable loss of Rick, our commitment to our customers and our business is stronger than ever. Our customers are as much our family as those we hold dear at home. With heavy hearts we will continue on with the business model set forth by Rick and Vickie. Trustworthy, honest, excellent auto repair services that our customers deserve, remains our top priority. Thank you all for your continued patronage and God bless. 03/30/2021

This is why you find a shop you can trust. First time customer comes in for a problem diagnoses. Upon diagnosis we find a previous repair done at another shop where the shop has cut off the nuts to the steering tie rod ends and reused the cut nuts when reassembled. This is insane! It would take nothing for the nuts to shake right off and let the steering arms come out of the knuckle pockets and you guessed it... they would have no control to which direction the vehicle would go. Deadly!

This is why we bring customers out into the shop to show them the problems we find and explain what they do and why the parts failed.

Would you want this vehicle loose control and veer off into your lane...possibly head-on?


We are looking for another technician for our team! Experience required and will reflect pay of course. Must be reliable as we are a busy shop. Have drivers license a must. Currently the technician hours are m-f 8-5. Sat 8-12 with overtime after 40. Saturdays and some days through the week we may stay a little later to finish a job for the customer. Detailed explanations during interview.

Please leave a message through Facebook with name, contact info, years experience, current and one previous job with length of employment there. Interviews will be Mondays, Fridays, Saturdays, and evenings.


Gotta keep the guys hydrated on these 90 degree days.


Well sell new and used tires! Installed, balanced, or carry out.


We almost have the place completely set up!

Looks like it's blown engine week here.


Doing an engine swap but curiosity got us to see what was really wrong with this engine. Looks like it just needs a tune-up.. ;)

[07/08/15]   Been awhile since weve been able to post so time to catchup on whats been happening.

Weve hired another tech bringing the total to 4. 2 of which are ASE Certified and 1 Master Technician.

We now carry Schaffers full synthetic oil for gasoline and diesels. The pricing is better than Mobil 1 and Its a better quality oil plus you can go twice as long between oil changes saving you more money because you dont have to pay for another oil filter and labor for half that time. Our Common Semisynthetic oil changes start at $29.99 and the full synthetic Schaffers at 54.99 (5 quarts systems). Right now we also offer free tire rotations along with our normal free complete inspections with oil changes.

[03/12/15]   Tomorrow (Friday) will prolly be the last day we will be accepting applications for auto techs. We will also be starting our interviewing process for someone to join our team. If your still interested or know someone who is have them come in and see Shawn.

[03/06/15]   We are now accepting applications for a service technician. Prefer have at least 5 years experience and be able to diagnose and repair a wide variety of problems. Must have own basic mechanic tools. Call or stop in M-F 9-5. Ask for Shawn


Some big jobs were doing right now. Brake job on a box truck, Heater core, New engine swap, and Engine head rebuild.


A few more pics of the shop and supplies we keep in stock. Different weight oils and we carry either Synthetic blend or full synthetic in stock. Oil filters for hundred different types of vehicles, 2 tire machines, and we can resurface brake rotors or drums ourselves, or we can do yours if you prefer doing your own brakes. Need a bearing pressed? We can do that too. Also carry some used tires and we can get you new tires the very next day often priced better than the sale price of many local tire stores.
