The inception of Charlie’s Auto Repair started when he was a young boy around 8 years old hanging around his uncle’s shop. He’s transformed that passion from nearly 40 years ago to the two current facilities with 6 technicians and 2 service consultants that have a high regard for you and your vehicle. Charlie worked at a local dealership for 10 years followed by 2 years at an independant repair shop. In August of 1996 we opened our first facility and quickly outgrew that location. The following year we purchased the location at 818 South Federal Avenue and in September of 2002 added the facility at 1050 South Federal Avenue.
At Charlie’s, we understand the technology in the automotive industry is ever-changing. We have the latest state of the art equipment, tools, and training that dealerships use to service your vehicle. We have a Verus, Tech 2, Chrysler DRB3, and Flash Programming that updates computers in your newer vehicle, and more.
Customers can expect the same fair prices and quality work at both locations. We work on both domestic, foreign, and European vehicles. Our repair abilities range from oil changes, brakes, starters and alternators to diagnostics, A/C and heating, transmission services, cooling systems, tires, and engine repair and much more.
We strive for a high standard of excellence. Our goal is to take care of the customer by giving them the best care possible at a competitive price. The shops have been recognized locally for 9 years as “Best of the Best” and regionally by ACDelco for the last 6 years – most recently in June 2013 for Outstanding Performance in the North Central Region (Consisting of North and South Dakota, Minnesota, Nebraska, Wisconsin, Illinois and Iowa). Our certifications include ASE – Automotive Service Excellence, ACDelco Professional Service Center, Pronto, and IATN – International Automotive Technician Network. Charlie has also assisted NIACC in achieving their National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation (NATEF) certification by evaluating their curriculum and equipment to receive additional funding to educate their students to a higher level of education.
The staff at Charlie’s Auto Repair and Charlie’s II look forward to taking care of all your automotive needs and adding you to our long list of satisfied customers!
