We are also super proud of the fact that we have a woman ran auto repair shop. One more thing that keeps us one step ahead in our industry.
Lisa has an amazing support staff of service advisors to help take great care of our customers. Brian, Russ, and Daniel have a great balance of technical knowledge and communication skills. Our service advisers do a great job of explaining everything good about your vehicle and everything that may have some concerns. They also do a great job of helping our customers prioritize vehicle repairs as to what fits their current timeline and budget.
We have a top-notch team of mechanics out in the shop led by our shop foreman Tyler. Tyler has been a mechanic for over two decades now and has many accomplishments. He is well versed in all makes and models but is especially advanced in the knowledge of all European makes. BMW and Mini Cooper are his specialties. He knows these cars as good or better than any mechanic in Utah and especially more than any mechanic near our Layton area. On top of Tyler’s knowledge and mechanic skills, he is also just an amazing, humble and well balanced human being. This leads to him having great communication and motivational skills to lead his team of top-rated mechanics.
We have an amazing team of mechanics out in our shop working behind our shop foreman.
- Our lead mechanic Justin has been diagnosing and repairing cars for over two decades now as well. He has been working here at our Layton auto repair shop for over ten years and is one of the most well-known and respected mechanics in Utah. He is well versed in all makes and models but is known for his diagnostic skills. He is especially knowledgeable in Audi, Volkswagen and diesel pickup trucks. Ford Power stroke, Chevrolet/ GMC Duramax, and Dodge/ Ram Cummins are all areas he has really spent a lot of extra focus on.
- Juan is another of our best mechanics. He has been a mechanic for over 2 decades now and has been here at our auto repair shop for 10 years now. He knows all makes and models but is especially known for his knowledge of Subaru and Toyota. Whether it is diagnosing a check engine light or replace cylinder head gaskets, Juan is the mechanic you want to diagnose and repair your car or truck.
- Julian is our mechanic that is best-known for Ford, Dodge and Ram Trucks. He has been a mechanic for well over a decade now and has grown to be one of the best mechanics in Utah right here at our Layton repair shop. He is confident in all areas of repair but really excels at diagnosis, timing chain replacements, and exhaust repairs.
- Barry is newer to our team of mechanics but has been a great addition. Barry has been a mechanic for coming up on three decades now. Before coming to work for our Layton auto repair shop, he was working for a local auto repair shop as well as teaching at a local vocational mechanic school. Barry is very knowledgeable in all areas of auto repair but has spent additional focus on Chevrolet and GMC trucks and cars. He does a lot of our brake repairs, fluid exchanges, and maintenance work. He is getting up there in age so we try to take it easy on the big guy…haha
- Dillon is our Honda and Acura specialist. He recently joined our team in 2019. He started his career with Honda factory training and apprenticing at a local Honda dealership. He is super passionate about all things Honda but did not agree with the broken culture at the dealer. We were lucky enough to steal him away and he is proving to be a perfect fit for our positive and fun culture. If your Honda or Acura needs maintenance or repairs…Dillon is the mechanic you want.
- Andrew is the latest addition to our mechanic team. We found him at a local Mazda speed shop. He was one of the mechanics doing performance upgrades to Mazda’s. Turbos, clutches, intercoolers, etc.. He is now apprenticing with our shop foreman Tyler to learn all the different makes and models we work on. He is also doing a lot of our fluid services, tires, and alignments. He is working on his Davis county emissions license and his ASE certifications. He is on the fast track to being a mechanic on his own later this year.
Last but definitely not least, we have a couple of amazing people on our support staff.
- Braiden is our Fleet and Marketing manager. When you have a team of advisers and mechanics as we have, it is a full-time job to ensure they have plenty of repairs to do. Braiden does an awesome job of being involved in our local community so that enough friendly customers like yourself know we are here to take care of their automotive repair needs. The Layton, Hill AFB, South Weber, South Ogden, Kaysville, and surrounding areas have been great to Braiden and our team.
- Shalene is our new office assistant. She helps take care of our amazing customers by driving our courtesy shuttle, keeping our work areas all nice and clean and keeping us stocked up on all our supplies and snacks.
