In November 2017, our family opened the doors to Gold River Automotive. We redefine auto care with modern technical expertise and timeless personal service. Our ASE-certified technicians boast years of experience handling diagnostics, repairs, and maintenance with expertise and care. Renovated service bays have advanced tools, elevating us above typical shops. The inviting waiting room houses “the Spark” coffee station, magazines, and games. Our quality surpasses the average while prices remain competitive. Backed by a 24,000-mile warranty, our work and parts deliver peace of mind. A family-owned and operated shop, we’re here to care for you and your family. We are also proud sponsors of the Gold River Discovery Center.
