About us

“These guys were great! They were incredibly courteous and friendly. There communication and follow up was excellent and the work they did was thorough. Very fair to work with and treated my situation with courtesy.”
“Just needed smog on 2 vehicles. Thanks to Yelp, found Golden Wrench. Smogs were handled quickly and professionally. I will return here when there's a job for which I need a mechanic's help.”

“Absolutely awesome service! I went in to get my brakes checked out and Mike did a great job of explaining my repair options. I would definitely go back if I have another car problem in the future”

Welcome to Golden Wrench Automotive

After working for 20+ years in the automotive industry at dealerships, repair shops and service stations, Mike Allenstein decided he had a better definition of customer service and opened the doors to Golden Wrench Automotive in 1993. His roster of loyal, satisfied customers has been growing over the last 24 years with customers that have grown tired of the “business as usual” method of car repairs including the commission structured, high pressure sales of most repair shops and dealers. Golden Wrench Automotive does it all with their signature “stress free, hassle free” customer service. His ASE certified, experienced technicians and BBB accredited A+ level of service make auto repairs an easy experience for any customer that comes in. Golden Wrench Automotive provides a free shuttle service to take you home or to the office and back to pick up your vehicle.
