Benefits of 12th Street Auto

Specializing in What You Need

At 12th Street Auto, we take every job seriously and we treat every customer like a member of our family. No service is too big or too small. We don’t specialize in specific cars or jobs. We specialize in whatever our clients need.

Engine & Transmission

Engine and transmission work typically involves heavy duty, time consuming, and, at times, life-altering repair. Our primary focus in this area is prevention. Make sure you’re coming in for regular maintenance to avoid disaster. But don’t worry, even in the event of disaster, we’ll find a way to help. Your safety matters to us.

Car Warning Light


Electrical issues with a car can be small and inconsequential, but they can often feel like a major interruption in your life. Fortunately, we’ve got both the equipment and the specialists to diagnose and repair any electrical issue you’re having. When a warning light will not go away, don’t ignore it. Let us check it out before it becomes serious.

Steering & Alignment

Talk about staying on the straight and narrow. Finding your steering off or your tires out of alignment can be, at first, just annoying. In the long run though, it can cause major damage to the rest of your car. Be sure to bring your car in for routine maintenance, and let us know if you’re feeling anything off in the meantime.

Brakes and Tires

Brakes & Tires

We live in snow country, so while you may be able to get away with riding your tread too low during those hot summer months, or pushing through your brake pads for a few more miles in the fall, once the snow and rain hit the ground, you’re gonna want to be prepared. Take the preventative route and don’t wait until it’s too late.
