While we have lots of experience, we realize we’re the new kids on the block here in Fort Myers. We look forward to earning your business!

Jason Hutchins

From the owner:

“I have always had a passion for mechanics and all kinds of cars and trucks. When I was young, I always loved to take things apart to see how they worked. By the time I was 12 years old, I had a VW Beetle that I would drive around on backroads. After college, I went to school to be an open wheel race car mechanic. Before I even graduated, I secured a job with BMW and their North American LeMans racing team, which enabled me to travel the U.S. and abroad.

“Today, as an auto repair shop owner, my goal is to provide the finest quality automotive and truck repairs along with the best service anywhere. Each day, I get to work with a team of true professionals who share a common purpose to take care of our customers’ needs. I am excited to get the chance to show drivers there are shops like ours that are honest and genuine in our commitment to excellence and 100% customer satisfaction.”
