To accomplish this goal, we've made a commitment to providing superior customer service. This starts with the two most important qualities every customer desires in an automotive repair shop: Honesty and Integrity.

Our full-service auto repair facility has the tools and equipment to provide a broad range of repair services including repairs to engines, brakes and electrical systems. We also offer expanded repair service in other areas, such as suspension and heating/air conditioning.

Our Mission Statement:

We will never sell or repair anything on your car that you don't need. We stand behind our work. If we replace or repair it, we guarantee it, both parts and labor, for an unprecedented thirty months or 30,000 miles, whichever comes first.

We will always go the extra step when it comes to taking care of you and your automobile.

We treat our customers like we want to be treated, and we would like the opportunity to earn your trust and confidence.

  • Very nice people to work with. They keep in touch and offer solution options to keep the price down. They are at least a cut above other shops. They are a thirty five minute drive from my home but well worth it! Clean (and friendly) shop too! You’re gonna like it there!

  • Great customer service: they take their time explaining in plain English what’s wrong with your car and don’t pressure you in any way. They are willing to prioritize fixes. The fact they’re based 10 minutes from my house is a bonus. AAA rated facility, highly recommend them.

  • I recently brought my car in because I had a mess with my clutch. Thank you for taking care of my care and for taking so much time with me afterward when I picked it up. That really meant a lot because I do not know cars at all. You were so patient in talking to me about what you did and what to expect. Thank you for making me feel comfortable and for a job well done.

  • Every time I call Shade Tree for service it's like calling a good friend... I know they will treat my car like it should last forever, they'll always be fair and reasonable, and most importantly, they are personable, nice, and respectful.

  • Owning and maintaining a German car can be costly and frustrating. Shade Tree has taken that burden away. I find the service to be much more affordable than others in the same market. They're also a trustworthy shop and have helped me prioritize repairs or scheduled services, which has saved me time and money. They are great to deal with on a personal level, and can help a hesitant customer be at ease, while addressing the needs of the most finicky enthusiast. Great shop! I'd be hard pressed to use anyone else!

  • What sets Shade Tree apart from most shops is the way they keep you informed during the repair process. There are no surprises, no unexpected costs and they deliver what they promise. Shade Tree is in contact with you from start to finish, and makes multiple calls along the way to inform you of how much time/labor might be required for a repair. Very friendly and professional all around - I would highly recommend Shade Tree!
