Carlos is the guy who know cars in Kelowna!

These days you almost need an engineering degree to work on new vehicles, it just so happens I have one! It is key to continue adapting to new technology through continued education and updated tooling and software to stay relevant in today’s automotive industry. I am very lucky to be in Kelowna and glad to give people a place they can call their own. A place where your automotive needs are addressed even if they don’t fit into a “check box”. Einstein once said “It’s not that I’m so smart, it’s just that I stay with problems longer.” I remind myself everyday that the quality of life I enjoy is based on the labours of others and therefore, give my best as a technician, as a business owner and as a father everyday to do my part and contribute to my community.
