About Us

The Garage is a full-service auto repair center located in Santa Barbara, California, where it’s our goal to always provide great service and high-quality workmanship at a fair price. Our commitment is to provide you with the best service possible.

At The Garage, we have incorporated all of the crucial service and repair needs to take complete care of your vehicle.

Each of these services, and much more, are all available under one roof!

Our commitment is to offer honest repair advice about the condition of our customers’ vehicles, offer repair options based on their needs, and ensure that customers’ vehicles are serviced properly and professionally, with high quality parts.

We treat our customers and their cars with the highest regard and offer superior customer relations, keep open lines of communication with our customers to ensure that their cars are diagnosed and repaired correctly and efficiently, and address any and all customer concerns.

We strive to exceed our customers’ expectations in every way.

What you are looking at is our state-of-the-art alignment machine. This is the only machine like this located in Santa Barbara County. This exact model of machine is used in BMW and Mercedes Benz’s factories for R&D development because of the precision accuracy of the machine, and its ability to get detailed readings of the entire car chassis.

The Arago V3D relies on three DigiSmart imaging cameras to provide real-time 3D measurements. Two of the imaging cameras automatically capture the wheel targets on the vehicle, and the third imaging camera establishes the distance between the other two cameras. Our machine is calibrated every year to ensure optimal performance.
