Quality Auto Repair & Vintage Values in Vista, CA
New 3yr / 36k Mile Nationwide Warranty
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.
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.

The engine of altruism
Last summer, TJ Crossman gave a complete stranger a car. For the Vista auto shop owner, who has seen his own share of hardship, it was a way to lend a hand to a person in need.
The car giveaway was part of Wheels to Prosper, a national program in which auto shop owners repair and donate cars to deserving recipients. Anthony E. Crossman JR, known as TJ, bought a 17-year-old Ford Taurus for $350, and his crew fixed it up with help and donations from a local parts supplier and auto body shop.
Here's what's been going on at TJ Crossman's Auto Repair. For our food drive, we partnered with Vista Teen out Reach and fed 125 families. The lady is Debi from Vista Teen Outreach.
We raffled off a grill for food donations and the winner of the grill Henry V. from Vista. Then the free turkey sign was just having a little fun.
TJ made a 30' Xmas tree and tire snowman to prepare for the holidays. He and Bob, along with TJ's Girl Scout Troop, were also part of the Vista Christmas parade.
