About Virginia Automotive Service

Virginia Automotive Services has been a family owned and operated Auto Repair Center servicing Richmond and Tri-City Areas since September 1978. As a member in Good Standing with the Better Business Bureau and an AAA Approved auto repair shop, our ASE (Automotive Service Excellence) Certified Technicians are able to handle both major and minor general repairs and services on both foreign and domestic vehicles.

From a basic oil change to a complete engine or transmission replacement, the professional staff at Virginia Automotive Services can handle all auto service needs. We are also a licensed Virginia State Inspection Station.

We are able to deliver the benefits of an established Napa national entity while maintaining the personal touch of a family owned business. Parts and Labor are backed by the best warranty with up to 3-years/36,000 miles. We offer Free Shuttle Service, Free Loaner Cars, several financing options and Free Coffee for waiting customers.

Our team specializes in many different types of vehicles, and since they work on a wider variety of vehicles than their dealer counterparts, their overall expertise is greater, too. By working on many makes and models, our technicians can be trusted to properly diagnose challenging repairs and other issues. As automotive technology advances, our team is continually updating their education & skills.

The Staff at Virginia Automotive Services understands your vehicle is a major necessity, and that is why your vehicle will be tested as if it were our very own, no matter what type of repairs are needed.

But what sets Virginia Automotive Services apart from the other businesses is the compassion we feel towards people. When a van; full of girls; are trying to make their way to North Carolina for a dance competition broke down late on a Saturday afternoon; the owner and two mechanics stayed at the shop until midnight completing the repairs. They got the van back on the road and the girls came in 2nd in the competition.

With two convenient locations, Richmond and Glen Allen, Virginia Automotive Services continues to apply their theory which is “Honest, hard working efforts build loyal customers for a Lifetime.” Let us help you make the most of your hard working dollars and bring your vehicles to Virginia Automotive Services, where you are not just another vehicle; you are “Our Customer and Friend.”

Come by and see how we’ve been protecting your precious cargo since 1978.

"The team at Virginia Auto Service is the BEST!!! They completed my repairs in a timely matter so I can have my car back that evening. They communicated to me the repairs and costs. My SUV is running like a new car. Thank you all for the hard work you did."
"I strongly recommend against any young woman going here. Made an appointment for a vehicle inspection, and what should have taken 5 minutes took instead an hour and a half. Then before giving my keys back to me, they told me I needed $800 worth of work done on the vehicle, which was both overpriced and false. After I turned down the extra services, the employee insisted I needed the work done and would not back off until I told him my boyfriend was capable of handling the "needed" work himself. The employee seemed angry then, which made the remainder of the wait uncomfortable."
"I called many places to get my vehicle inspected everywhere it was first come first serve. I called Virginia automotive service and they do appointments. The receptionist was very polite and nice and took all the details my got car into the queue. I was in and out by 30 mins. From now I'll only go to Virginia Automotive for my vehicle needs."
"We've used VA Automotive a few times in the past and felt great. This time we went in with our newer car, no problems or lights on, just for an inspection and oil change. We had a weird feeling already because when we first walked in, the guy at the front desk was rasing his voice and arguing with a woman carrying a small child. He was also rude with us, but we continued. We get a call quoting us for over $1000 in repairs that were out of the blue. The guy on the phone was very pushy, saying we needed to sign and approve everything immediately, even when we insisted on waiting until we got there to fully understand everything. After reading through other reviews, it seems like a common thing now with people getting pushy/rude service and a lot of extra services pushed on them. I'm very unhappy with this experience and would suggest people look elsewhere. Edit*** After going back, the manager was very kind and helped us out, we were charged only a reasonable amount."
"When my Prius hybrid battery died they got my car in the same day, even though they were swamped. They had the part delivered overnight. They handled my maxcare (CarMax warranty) claim seamlessly for me. Thanks y'all! Update: Returned with my other vehicle for an inspection. They came out with a list of repairs totaling about $3,000. I asked what I needed for inspection it was only the fog light. I had just had my alternator repaired at another shop in NJ and they had already inspected my car top to bottom and recommended a few things nothing near as much as Virginia automotive. I was not pleased."
