Bringing Old-School Quality to a New-School Auto Repair Shop
Travis’s inspiration and work ethic are influenced by 30 years of independent and dealership level auto service experience. Starting early in his career, he learned from old-school auto repair technicians who took ultimate pride in doing quality work. The dealership environment, with its constant learning and management training, also showed him the importance of staying up-to-date on the latest automotive technology. However, the non-family atmosphere could be frustrating, especially when many of his mentors retired or moved up the chain. So, Travis decided to start his own auto repair business, focused on providing friendly, high-quality automotive services.
As a modern, full-service auto repair shop, Elite Smog & Auto is equipped with four lifts and a smog testing bay, as well as the latest technology, scanners, tools, information, and resources available. Travis also encourages and supplies our staff and himself with consistent training and certification opportunities to improve the shop’s overall performance. We recycle all our waste fluids, waste metals, and cardboard, working to be as environmentally clean as possible, even when our job is very dirty.
If you live in the El Cajon area, we hope to get to know you, too, and provide you with the best service available in the auto repair industry.
