If you live in the surrounding area it is well worth taking your vehicle there.

It's a real Ford dealership alternative!! Do you want to save mony and need honest work with Ford specialist? Then, this is the answer.

We've had a Ford dealer maintain our Ford truck and car every 3,000 miles since they were purchased new. Both vehicles are now over 47,000 miles. Due to some bad luck with a dealer near our new residence, we decided to try Light Auto Repair after we found their name at We have only taken our cars there twice so far, but the customer service alone would bring us back. They have been polite and accomodating, explaining things well and patiently answering questions (thanks George and Dave!). On top of this they have certified mechanics who seem to really enjoy working on cars. I even called them once for some advice on a repair that the dealer had to do, having missed the problem the first time. George answered all my questions, and then called in another mechanic Al, for his expertise in Ford vehicles. Al spent five or ten minutes on the phone with me going over the details of the problem and even reminding me of an emissions warranty that might apply. We've talked to the guys at Light Auto Repair maybe five or six times total in the past three or four weeks, and already we feel like two of their valued customers. Rereading the comment above, this sounds like an advertisement for them, and in a way it is. Auto repairs cost a lot of money these days and our experience with dealers has been hit and miss. To find a car shop that treats you like a human being rather than a profit-provider, and gives good value for your dollar to boot is refreshing and worth sharing with others. Only time will tell if Light Auto Repair will keep up the excellent work, but they're off to a great start.

This was my first experience with Light Auto Repair and it was a good one at that! The staff are friendly and helpful. They made their best effort to work with me and meet my needs. I could not believe how quickly the work was completed. I will return to this shop.
