2015: Changes for Auto Repair Solana Beach
The biggest news this year is the retirement of Dennis and Barbara Smith from local Solana Beach auto repair shop D&B Auto. After 35 amazing years serving our community, D&B Automotive closed its doors on December 31. Dennis and Barbara's very loyal customers will miss them. However, as of March 1st, DRIVE AutoCare will be expanding into this location at 128 North Cedros to service D&B's customers without interruption. Also, D&B’s services are expanding to include general automotive repair and vehicle customization.
Also this year, in October, California Import Auto and North Coast Alignment Center were re-branded as DRIVE AutoCare. While the same ownership and excellent service can be found at both locations, the re-brand better represents the broad service offering by each, which were previously focused on imported cars and suspension, respectively. Both locations now offer wheel alignment, brake repair, oil change services, tune ups, electrical system, heater/ac repair, and much more. Drive is obsessive in our quest to exceed the expectations of our small but tight-knit beach community.
Vehicle owners in coastal north county San Diego still have a choice of five auto repair shops in Solana Beach. DRIVE AutoCare's re-brand and expansion are focused on enhancing automotive value, comfort and safety with trustworthy advice and legendary service.
Come check out the new location at our official grand opening party on Thursday, March 3rd, from 5pm-8pm. Featuring wine from Carruth Cellars - Solana Beach Urban Winery, brews from Pizza Port, raffles, music, and fun!
