About Us

Mackert Automotive opened the weekend after 9/11/01, you all remember that day! Howard was thinking he would open a shop and pay a few bills until the job of his dreams came along. It soon dawned on him that this was the job of his dreams: helping people and working on cars. He really didn’t understand the plight of the average Joe in finding a trustworthy & competent auto shop. People started baking him things and the appreciation actually got a little embarrassing. Now he has a very well staffed 6,000 square foot shop with 7 lifts, working on Domestic, Asian and European cars & trucks.

Thoroughness is his trademark, and with the best warranty in town: 3 years or 36,000 miles with no exceptions or fine print, you can trust that the repairs will last. As a Napa Auto Care Center, his customers enjoy Napa’s Nationwide Peace of Mind warranty for that same period. He specializes in those troublesome warning lights on your dash, but loves to perform the your regular timing belt, water pump, tune-up, brakes and suspension services as well.

It’s an honor to work in this beautiful community and to have the trust of so many thousands of “neighbors”. We value your trust and do everything we can to exceed your expectations. We commit to you that we will “under promise and over deliver”! The WOW is what we’re after, thank you.
