About Us

More About Us

Welcome to Automotive Excellence, where we have been in business for over 18 years as a family-owned and operated auto repair shop. What started out as Huntington Beach Muffler, a one-man muffler shop that was bought by father and son team Alex and Evi, has now expanded to a complete car care facility. Both Alex and Evi have been residents here in Huntington Beach for almost 20 years. We understand the importance of community, and that is why we sponsor and participate in local car shows, volunteer at our local schools, and attend community events: because this is our home!

At Automotive Excellence, we take pride in having a team of experienced and dedicated technicians who are committed to providing top-quality service. Our technicians include David, CJ, and Greg Sullivan, who are ASE-certified experts in their field, while also having children and families of their own.

Alex's wife, Yvonne, started working with the shop after they married ten years ago and is passionate about spreading the word about our services and helping customers find us. Together, Alex and Yvonne have raised two school-aged children who have been hanging out at the shop since they were little. We're more than just a business—we're a tight-knit family that's dedicated to providing exceptional service to our customers. When you bring your car to us, you can expect to be treated like family, too. We'll take the time to get to know you and your vehicle, and we'll work hard to earn your trust and loyalty.

As a family-owned business, we understand the value of hard work, honesty, and integrity. We’re committed to treating our customers with the respect and professionalism they deserve, and we’re always looking for ways to go above and beyond their expectations.

Thank you for considering Automotive Excellence for your auto repair and maintenance needs. We look forward to serving you and your family for many years to come. Contact us today to schedule an appointment or to learn more about our services.
