Have Your Car Fixed By An ASE Certified Master Technician.

At Full Tilt Automotive, we fix your engine properly the first time and we do it for a fair price. It doesn’t matter if you have a weekend race car, a Rolls Royce or a Honda Civic with 200,000 miles – we treat your car with respect and we get you back on the road as soon as possible. Many repair shops base their pricing on the type of car you drive. We base our pricing on how many hours it takes to fix your problem. We always charge $80 per hour for engine repairs and we pride ourselves on getting your car fixed the same day if you arrive before 10:00 am.

Your engine should be repaired by a trained, experienced mechanic who wants to properly fix your problem in one visit. Before we lift your hood, we want to hear what you have to say. We ask the important questions so we can understand if your problem common or unique. Then, we use our experience and our diagnostic tools help us figure out what’s affecting your engine. We pay close attention to recalls, run every necessary test, and we are almost certain of your problem before we pick up the first wrench.  

Our technicians care about solving your problem, we’re not going to sell you a bunch of services that you need. We’re different from the competition because we pride ourselves on education and working on cars is our passion. We are owned and operated by a UTI Graduate (Universal Technical Institute) who also took the time to earn each of the available ASE Certifications back in 2008. We say that cars are our passion because each of our service technicians owns at least 3 cars and we love them like our children. If your car is an important part of your life, you should call Full Tilt Automotive today.
