Welcome to PJW Automotive

Thank you and farewell

It is with mixed emotions that I announce that PJW Automotive will be riding off into the sunset as of October 31.  When I started the business with my dad and brother nearly 40 years ago, I could only dream that the company would have such a long run.  I’ve been in the car business for my entire adult life and I’ll cherish all the memories I’ve made at PJW Automotive.  Sadly, the tight labor market has made it extremely difficult to maintain the level of service I expect to provide for PJW Automotive customers, and so, the time has come for me to travel the exciting road to retirement.

This amazing run would not have been possible without all the thousands of loyal customers who have trusted the PJW Automotive team to care for their cars over the years, the dedicated team of mechanics and administrative staff who’ve made the shop a wonderful place to work and the valued partners who have helped make the business run smoothly.  I can’t thank you enough for all the wonderful memories. Please stop by the shop in the next couple weeks – I’d love to say, “Thank you and farewell,” in person – and maybe put one more breath of air in your tires.

Thank you again for nearly 40 years of loyal patronage.  I will remember you all fondly.

Happy trails!

Used Vehicle Pre-Inspection

You found a used car or light truck; the price is right and the mileage is low. The current owner claims it’s been a good, dependable vehicle — no problems! You like the car but you really want a second opinion from someone you can trust. PJW Auto is your trusted advisor when it comes to knowing if the “deal” you found is a deal or a nightmare about to happen.
