Fred’s South County Auto Repair

Vehicles are much more complex today than in the good ol’ days. Our stable group of technicians has allowed us to invest in training and technology which everyone knows how use to make efficient repairs.

Continuing education is not an option in auto repair. With the changing technologies introduced by vehicle manufacturers each year, we are diligent in putting our technicians through training programs for these updates.

Then we equip our people and our shop workbenches with the technology and tools needed to do the job right. In our shop every technician has access to databases with the most current parts, schematics, and repair strategies for your vehicles. Together with our diagnostic instruments, we can diagnose and repair problems to meet the highest auto repair standards in our industry.
