Ever have that sinking feeling that something is just not right with your vehicle? In today’s ever changing world, with economic times being so very insecure, what options do we have as consumers? Do we take our prize possession to some low-cost repair facility and hope they have the knowledge and skills to properly perform the job or do we take the plunge and go to a dealership where the cost is high and the guarantee of repair is not always there?

Our recommendation is to satisfy all your automotive needs by going to one facility, Bob’s Complete Automotive Repair. Bob’s Complete Automotive Repair has taken a new-old approach to automotive repair.

  • We pride ourselves in education; our staff has continued to receive training and new product education at every opportunity. Along with having and maintaining the highest level of ASE (Automotive Service Education) certifications as possible. Which means we are a Blue Seal recognized repair facility, one of three in the Tri-Cities area and one of 1252 in the U.S.
  • Educating our customers as to the why, where, and what of their vehicles. This means we take you to your car and show you what we are recommending and explain why. We also utilize today’s ever expanding technology to help us talk to you better, with web sites that show the problem clearly so our customer is as knowledgeable as possible.
  • Complete Automotive Repair is exactly that, our staff has extensive knowledge in almost every vehicle produced today including medium and heavy duty trucks. The technology and computerized software we have available to us allows us to perform at dealership levels which includes, reprogramming computers, key coding, and Tire Pressure Monitoring reset procedures. Nothing is off limits to us.

The main goal of Bob’s C.A.R. is to get the job done right the first time with quality workmanship and quality parts. We are the one-stop shop for all of your car needs including both minor and major repairs. Also, with our after-hours drop-off system, we make the process convenient for everyone.


Bob Layton and his staff of five have multiple industry certifications and licenses; including ASE (Automotive Service Excellence) Blue Seal recognized shop. Bob comes from a family of mechanics and served 10 years in the Marine Corps as a Light Armored Vehicle Repairman. He is most proud of the fact that he and the staff take the time to fully explain the repairs needed and costs to customers.
