You depend on your car every day to get you where you need to go. Likewise, you can depend on Doc Auto to keep your car safe, efficient and reliable.

Quality Health Care for Your Car

Doc Auto doesn’t do just auto repair. We prevent any future damage or breakdowns we can predict. Nothing ruins your day quite like a broken car. That’s why we offer a free 30-point inspection on every vehicle that comes to our shop. We want you to be aware of the condition of your vehicle, as we work with you to keep your car on the road as long as possible. We’ll let you know what needs attention right away and what can wait.

Our ASE-Certified technicians can handle just about anything you throw at them. We specialize in auto repair for American cars like Ford and Chevrolet, Japanese cars including Toyota, Honda, Nissan, and Subaru, and German cars like Volkswagen. We also service hybrids for our more environmentally conscious guests. We also perform all factory-recommended services to maintain your warranty.
