About Us

Alternative Autoworx, LLC was started in 1998 after I had finished with a short stint at my second Subaru dealership. Starting in 1976, I worked at some really good garages and a couple of completely dishonest garages, both independent and factory dealerships. In 1998 I decided it was time to use the knowledge I had gained to start a fair priced and humbly honest garage of my own. The goal was to provide my customers with an honest alternative to the higher priced and not always trustworthy garages and dealerships. Born was “Alternative Autoworx”. As my loyal customer base from all walks of life expanded, we had one thing in common. Trust. They trusted me to not perform unnecessary work and to do the job right the first time, and I trusted them to spread the word about our humble beginnings and to return to me for future auto repairs & maintenance. Fast forward 25 years and we’ve moved into our own new facility where we continue to provide our growing “family” with the trust they have become accustomed to. We couldn’t have done it without their gracious support. A HUGE Thank You

After hearing more about this process, it was clear that he had the talent needed to provide our customers with quality repairs. After just a few months of just him finding his own groove he has proven to be a natural at his trade. His comfort with electrical troubleshooting is a valuable talent
