Message from the Shop

Expert Albuquerque Car Repair Since 1986
Don Brown Parts and Automotive Inc. has served Albuquerque residents with expert car repair services since 1986. Albuquerque car owners find complete solutions - from oil change to tires - with Don Brown and his family.

Third-Generation Family Owned Albuquerque Auto Repair
Don Brown learned car repair firsthand from his dad, Joe, at Joe's Bosque Farms garage. Don continued the commitment to excellent customer service, to quality car repair and to doing whatever it takes to get the job right. These standards have earned his business the reputation for the best auto repair in Albuquerque, NM.

Don founded the original 6001 4th Street location in 1986, and now his son Dustin runs the Albuquerque auto repair shop. Don's son Nolan opened a second location at 7702 4th Street in 2009. The original shop features four bays, and the new location offers seven, to provide fast car repair services and to better address growing needs for their loyal and new customers.

At both locations, customers find the most talented Albuquerque auto repair mechanics on duty, to identify and fix every type of vehicle problem.

Don Brown Auto Repair offers complimentary shuttle service and a 2-year, 24,000-mile guarantee. All car repair mechanics are ASE-certified.

They are friendly, thorough, honest & do good work. I trust them completely.

Verified CustomerMay 08, 2014

Prompt service, friendly folks, opportunity to actually speak with the mechanic who does the work.

Verified CustomerMay 05, 2014

I have always had good service and professionalism from Don Brown Automotive.

Verified CustomerMay 05, 2014

The first job Don Brown performed was fixing a broken speedometer. The problem was misdiagnosed, therefore it's still broken, however I was still charged the full amount for parts and labor. The second time I took my Jeep in they gave me outrageous estimates for minor repairs: $88 to replace a license plate bulb. Riley's Auto parts charged about $3 for the bulb and it took less than 5 minutes to change myself. The mechanics are very nice and great to talk with....

Verified CustomerMay 01, 2014

They are honest, skilled and friendly.

Verified CustomerApril 29, 2014

The care and feeding of my car is done promptly even when I don't have a scheduled appointment. I have recommended you and the person was well satisfied.

Verified CustomerApril 28, 2014

They were recommended to use before we started our drive from Albuquerque, NM to Anchorage, Alaska. Our big box van needed a pile of word to be road safe for such a long drive (over 4,100 miles). Your crew, Chris in particular, were helpful, honest and fast. They were great to work with and we really appreciated the service. We made our trip successfully! Thank you!

Verified CustomerApril 25, 2014

They have a good friendly attitude and very knowledgeable in their field of service and explained what they are going to do to my vehicle in an easy and understandable manner.

I was very pleased with the professional atmosphere, and the services I requested were provided in a very timely manner. The quotes I was given were the same as what I was charged when the services were completed. My vehicle is operating extremely well. I am definitely pleased with service I was given, and the professionalism I experienced.

Verified CustomerApril 22, 2014

Prompt intelligent service from Chris and Dustin.

Verified CustomerApril 22, 2014

Of all the mechanics I have done business with, Don Brown is certainly the most reliable, honest and knowledgeable place I've been too. A bit pricey, but they get the job done. I don't waste my time and money anymore; I never hesitate to tell people . this is the place to go! Family owned, and they welcome my dog :-)

Verified CustomerApril 16, 2014

Everyone was friendly, explained the problem, and took care of it.

Verified CustomerMarch 19, 2014

Don Brown is a great business and I recommend it highly, but I personally have not visited many automotive repair shops and don't have enough experience to call it the best.

Very professional.

Verified CustomerMarch 10, 2014

Great customer service and they delivered on what they promised.

September 24, 2015

We were traveling thru New Mexico when our car problems started. Because we knew what the problem was, and without us prepaying, Brown's ordered the part EVEN before our car was towed in. They fixed the car in a timely matter, all the employees were pleasant, the shop is clean and the AAA discount was an added plus. Highly recommend them!
