“We are so impressed with the quality of their work and professionalism of their staff. They give us great advice and we can rely on Drive to keep all of our cars running at peak performance.”

– Lori G.



The Story Behind the Location

In 1980, Mike Gilmore opened a small auto repair facility at the corner of N. Highway 101 and Cliff Street in Solana Beach. His goal was to provide the best automotive experience for customers driving imported automobiles with a focus on German, British and Japanese cars and light trucks. At the time, Mike was the Service Manager and the Mechanic. Due to his success and his very loyal customer base, Mike expanded the facility to 6 lifts and 3 mechanics. Re-branded as DRIVE AutoCare in 2015, the facility now services foreign and domestic vehicles and has very happy customers from Solana Beach, Cardiff, Encinitas, Rancho Santa Fe and Del Mar.

DRIVE AutoCare enhances automotive value, comfort and safety. Forevermore, we will be obsessive in our quest to exceed the expectations of our community with trustworthy advice and legendary service.
