Craig Johnson started working on automobiles in the late 70’s at a Chevron station where he was employed in Whittier. He then went to work for Johnny’s auto repair in Uptown Whittier where he worked for the next 12 years. In 1984 Craig Started working on cars out of his residence as a hobby.

In 1986 he obtained all proper licensing and insurance and continued working on vehicles at his residence for the next 10 Years (Much to his wife’s dismay). In 1997 His neighbors, His Wife, Local Law Enforcement, and other concerned parties persuaded him to open up a shop where he could continue to do what he enjoys to do the most. And … his neighbors could now get there parking back.

"Craig Johnson and his staff have been our neighborhood mechanic for many years. I can bring any of our 3 cars in for routine and non-routine service and our family is confident that our vehicle will be service quickly with the correct parts and labor. I am always kept informed on car status and expected cost and repair time. If you are looking for a dependable auto repair show for domestic or foreign vehicles ( I have both ), you should go to Craig's-- you will be glad you did."
"Craig Johnson is a man of integrity and that is why I have been taking my vehicles to Craig Johnson Automotive for years. He and his whole staff are dependable, respectable and honest. I work with some of Craig's other customers and we all agree he is a blessing! Always leave satisfied and secure."
"I am not one to really do reviews. However I was referred to Craig by my boy friend. Glad I listened and came here for my oil change on my Prius. Very knowledgeable and honest about what my car needed and sent me photos. Which was a plus especially since I didn’t ask for them. It’s a rare thing to find someone in this profession who is fair with price, honest and good quality. Will be coming to him from now on."
"As always, I had a great experience at Craig Johnson Automotive. I tend to keep my cars a long time. I had a Ford Escort with over 200,000 miles on it. I also have a Mustang that is 25 years old. Craig has always kept my cars in tip top shape. Craig has been my one and only mechanic for almost forty years. He stands behind his work, and is very good at communicating what needs to be done, could be done, and can be deferred as far as repairs go."
"My family has received 10+ years of great service from Craig Johnson. He has been a great help in all our "car phases"! He checked out new/used cars and gave us excellent insights, he has done many major repairs, and even guided us in getting rid of a clunker profitably! Life is better when you have a car mechanic you can fully trust!"
