These guys are absolutely amazing. The best auto mechanics in Santa Fe and after living here for 10 years, you can believe I have tried many of them. I have read reviews complaining of price, but you know what, you get what you pay for (and more) when it comes to these guys. Solid, friendly people to want to make sure that you understand everything that is happening with your car. I trust these guys and won't be going anywhere else. Also, it was the first time, as a woman, that I didn't feel like I was being (mis)treated for not knowing much about cars. I felt complete respect from all members of the staff. Not only that, but the owner went through the trouble (more than once) of making sure I understood exactly what was happening. He wasn't annoyingly informing me - he was taking the time to teach me. These people are more than mechanics. They are friends.

I was disappointed that the shop had a laundry list of things that my car supposedly needed, which it didn't. I thought you guys were above this. I'll still come back, but I lost a bit of trust with this visit.

The work done on my car was excellent, and I was well treated. The could be some improvement in communication between the technicians who work there. Otherwise, everything else is fine. Thank you.

MESSAGE FROM THE SHOP

The Auto Angel Inc. was originally started by Gabriel & Caroline Garcia in June of 1998 and was, at that time, known as ‘Gabriel The Auto Angel’. It was a mobile auto repair facility, meaning Gabriel, would perform repairs at a customer’s location or pick up and drop off the customer’s vehicles. This was a part-time day job for Gabriel. After about six months, Gabriel & Caroline rented a small facility and decided to take their business to the next level. They opened a full-time auto repair facility and Gabriel quit his night job. They changed the name to ‘The Auto Angel’ and incorporated in January of 1999. ‘The Auto Angel Inc.’ soon became a well known and respected business in Santa Fe. By the time the business was about 1 1/2 years old, it had outgrown the space available, and once again the business moved to a larger location. To better serve their growing clientele the business moved once more in 2007 to its current location of 3140 Cerrillos Road.
