I wouldn't bring my car anywhere else for repairs. This is the best shop ever to service my Mercedes and my Stratus. I have confidence in their domestic and import repairs. They are very fair, and honest.

Message From the Shop
In 2001, Shade Tree Auto started in a small garage in Johnston, IA, and quickly became a favorite. Its philosophy was simple: Bring back the classic repair shop. Its founder, Clint Dudley, holds a 2 year degree in Automotive Technology, and is an ASE certified Master Mechanic with specialty certifications in Advanced Engine Performance, Under-car, and Service Advisement. He believes a true repair shop should be able to repair anything, regardless of year, make, or model, and do it at reasonable prices. It didn’t take long for word of the little shop to spread, and the garage in Johnston quickly became over-crowded. In the winter of 2005, Shade Tree Auto found a brand new home in Grimes. The improved facility allowed for faster turn-around on repairs and the large overhead doors accommodated over-the-road trucks and motor homes.AAA Top Shop Award Winner. ASE Certified Master Technicians, 4 year / 40,000 mile warranty on parts and labor. Free shuttle service and pick-up / delivery in the Des Moines Area. Our mission is to help our customers make the most informed decisions regarding their vehicle. We promise to stand behind our repairs and provide a level of customer service that exceeds expectations. Shade Tree Auto is proud to be part of the local community, both as a member of the Grimes Chamber of Commerce and the Better Business Bureau of Greater Iowa.
