Quality Auto Repair & Vintage Values in Vista, CA

TJ Crossman's Auto Repair is a local Vista automotive service shop that’s small in size but big in quality, value, and satisfied customers. Our owner, TJ Crossman has been servicing and repairing vehicles in the area since 1992, opening a mobile repair service back in 2006. The venture was a success, and TJ’s truck and trailer has evolved into the clean, comfortable, retro-themed shop our crew works in today.

Quality Auto Repair & Vintage Values in Vista, CA

Along with auto repair, we specialize in customer service. TJ designed the shop with a vintage feel to reflect the era when customer service was common practice and workers took real pride in their jobs. Our crew work to deliver the same level of care and craft you might have experienced in 1955, rather than 2015.

We do this by performing courtesy inspections on every vehicle that comes into the shop and then by performing a quality control inspection after the work is performed—our inspections ensure your vehicle leaves our hands in better condition than it came in. For your convenience and comfort, we also offer discounted rental cars, free shuttle service, complementary soft drinks and coffee, a clean and comfortable waiting room and bathroom, and a friendly, experienced, and knowledgeable staff.

2015 Heroes of Vista - Small Business of the Year Heroes of Vista award

Our shop won the Heroes of Vista Small Business of the Year award for 2015! Based on this achievement, we have been recognized by Congressman Daryl Issa, Vista Mayor Judy Ritter, County of San Diego Fifth District Chairman Bill Horn, and Assembly Members Rocky Chavez and Marie Waldron. Thanks to everyone who has contributed to our success!
