We understand the anxiety the car repairs can bring.  And, while our business is repairing cars, our real job is helping the people who drive them.  You will find smiling faces, clear communication, and a genuine desire to do whatever we can to meet your needs. 

Our style is to provide accurate information, honest recommendations and top quality work at a great price.  Many clients comment on the cleanliness and organization of our shop.  This reflects our belief in how important the details are.  A clear and flowing work environment allows for a clear and flowing mind and with the complexity of todays vehicles this gives us the edge to offer excellence!

Erick’s Autotech has been serving the car care needs of our community since 1999.  Most of our business is from returning customers and the friends or family they have referred us to! 

We offer the expertise of formal training, 10 years of dealership experience as well as on going, intensive education.  Our shop is loaded with the latest tools, equipment and state of the art diagnostic equipment.  We can perform the same services and repairs the dealership can and at a much better price!

You can trust us to provide top quality work, great value and freedom from anxiety!

Our Team


Erick Gruis

Owner/ Lead Mechanic
I have a degree in Applied Science and factory certifications from over 10 years of prior experience with large dealerships. My specialty is diagnostics and trouble shooting.  I am one of those strange people who love math!  I started my business in 1999 and have been at this location since 2012. I truly love what I do and if you happen to sneak into the shop without being noticed, you will likely find us laughing and having a great day!  I have a very positive outlook in life and I believe good energy is contageous (even for cars).  Most importantly, everyone who comes to our shop is treated with respect, kindness and honesty.
