Join us on this journey - where your car's story becomes part of our own.

Every Car, Every Challenge

Our journey has seen us tackle projects that others shy away from. From the carbureted classics to the latest hybrid models, our team has developed a reputation for handling the most daunting of automotive challenges. We became the go-to destination for issues that even dealers struggled to solve, thanks to our thorough diagnostics and refusal to rely on guesswork.

From British Classics to Universal Expertise

Smith Auto's early days were dedicated to British cars - the likes of MG, Triumph, and Peugeot - a niche that required a special touch and deep knowledge. However, Dave's ambition and expertise were not to be confined. The shop quickly evolved, embracing the challenge of servicing all makes and models. This expansion was a testament to our adaptability and technical prowess, making us a rare gem in the auto repair industry.

Bridging the Market Gap

The 90s brought a revolution in automotive technology, with vehicle electronics becoming increasingly complex. Dave saw a glaring gap in the market: most auto shops hesitated to touch these sophisticated systems. Leveraging his background in engineering and his hands-on experience with cars, Dave set out to fill this void. He envisioned a shop that didn't just fix cars but excelled in the intricacies of their electronic hearts.

The Genesis of a Vision

Smith Auto began in the mind of Dave, a project engineer with a vision beyond his corporate cubicle. His journey started in the world of engineering. Despite not holding a formal engineering degree, Dave's innate talent and passion for technology saw him training others, yet hitting a ceiling in his career due to traditional corporate hierarchies.

This realization sparked a desire for change - and a need to create something of his own, where his skills and passion could truly shine. Smith Auto was born from this desire, fueled by Dave's determination to break the mold and redefine auto care.
