What do you do when the nearest dealer for your make of vehicle is in Tacoma? I’m talking about Volkswagen, Audi, BMW, Mercedes, Mini-Cooper, Land Rover, Jaguar, and Lexus.  Does this mean you have to take the day off and drive to Tacoma to get your vehicle serviced or repaired?  Absolutely not!

You are looking for a shop that has ASE certified technicians, as well as the proper equipment and parts suppliers for your particular vehicle.   Bron’s Automotive in Olympia has both.  Our technicians are all ASE Certified Masters.

Our parts suppliers have parts from the same manufacturers that supply the assembly lines with parts, known as OEM parts.  OEM stands for Original Equipment Manufacturers.  The fluids we use when servicing your vehicle are the same as used in the dealerships.  Our technicians are highly trained, and we have invested in some of the same scanners, tools and equipment that the dealers use.

You can expect prices to be 10-15% lower that the dealer however, due to the fact that my overhead is far lower.

Hanson Motors in Olympia is allegedly no longer a Volkswagen dealer.  The nearest Volkswagen dealer is now in Tacoma.  Bron’s Automotive has been servicing and repairing Volkswagens for years.  The list of other vehicle makes with the nearest dealer in Tacoma include: Volkswagen, Audi, BMW, Mercedes, Mini-Cooper, Land Rover, Jaguar, and Lexus.  Bron’s Automotive is equipped to service and repair all these makes, and have been for years.

An added bonus is that we can give you a ride to work or home in our Courtesy Shuttle so you can continue with your day as your vehicle is serviced.  We are also an AAA certified repair shop, as well as the 2012 winner of the Thurston County Chamber’s Small Green Business of the Year award.  Please come by and meet us.  We think we have the cleanest shop in town and strive to provide the best service.  You can also check us out at
