Finding a German auto service center you can trust isn’t always easy . . .

When German Auto Center opened its doors in 1979 German luxury cars were the pride and joy of many local drivers. American muscles cars were starting to take a backseat to the expertly engineered machines from across the Atlantic, and there was a growing need for mechanics that could handle their complex inner workings. German Auto Center was founded to provide expert repair for European cars along with hospitable customer service for Central Texas drivers.
Back then it was easier to get fair dealings with a handshake or a promise. Unfortunately, that’s not quite as common these days. But at German Auto Center the same honest luxury car repair Austin residents relied on then can still be found today.
