About Us

Voted #1 by a landslide.

Dulin Automotive is a a full service auto repair shop specializing in new car preventive maintenance. We have over 30 years of experience in new car factory training. Our ASE certified technicians use the latest computer diagnostic tools to assess and maintain your vehicle in our climate controlled facility. We have two hybrid trained technicians and can perform routine maintenance on your hybrid. And to make your visit more convenient, we offer towing services and an after-hours key-drop box.

Fair Pricing

Other automotive repair centers take advantage of your lack of car knowledge and fool you into thinking you're getting a good deal. We don't. We'll gladly break down exactly where every penny you spend is going.

We Recycle

We take the extra time to crush and recycle every oil filter, something many automotive repair centers neglect to do. Automobiles pollute the environment enough, the least we can do is service them in a clean manner.
