Message from the Shop

Independence Auto offers TOP-NOTCH service, with very affordable pricing. I have been in the business for over 20 years. Dealer trained on Toyota/Lexus, Audi/Volks, and Mitsubishi. Extensive electronics training background through NEI and Dunwoody helps ease some of today's complicated auto problems. I have a technician on staff with over 25 years experience including 19 years Mazda Dealer experience. Between the two of us we can diagnosis and repair all makes, give you a fair price, and get it done right. I started in the business years ago, pumping gas, fixing tires etc. at a Full-Service Station. I learned the value of customer service, and common courtesy. You will always receive both when you have your vehicles serviced with me. I look forward to meeting you. Cory Larson/Owner Independence Auto

He's friendly and he's on time. He did a good clean job as far as other things. I'd definitely go back again. I just live in a different state now. Otherwise, he'd be my regular mechanic.

I was very satisfied. However, they have moved 20 miles away so I'm not sure if I will use them again.

by - Verified Customer June 15, 2012

If I had another Audi I would take it to him.

Cory was awesome. He is very easy to work with and very honest. If he feels somebody else can handle a problem better than he can, he will recommend that. I am very satisfied with the service there.
