About Our Shop in Santa Cruz, CA

Over 40 Years of Automotive Excellence — Catalpa Street Garage

Our Story

Catalpa Street Garage started serving the Santa Cruz, California community in 1978. This family-owned business focused solely on BMW repairs for many years before expanding the service line to include MINI Coopers. In late 2020, the business sold to our current owner, Vic Leon, an ASE-certified Master Technician with over 20 years of experience. Vic wanted to maintain the shop’s charm, focus, and history, but he knew there was so much more he could do to improve his customers’ experience. With support from his family and long-time staff members, he was able to offer his customers the ability to service the majority of vehicle brands his customers owned, not only being a BMW and Mini Cooper specialty shop but aiming to be Santa Cruz’s premier Automotive repair shop. If your BMW, MINI, or other European car needs maintenance or repairs, make your next appointment by either using our online scheduling tool or giving us a call at(831) 464-2269.

What We Do

We want to be a dealership alternative for all European makes and models, which is why our ASE-certified staff offer repairs, maintenance, upgrades, and more. Catalpa Street Garage — backed by AAA approval and the ASE Blue Seal — is equipped to handle any of your vehicle’s needs, no matter how big or small they may be. Our main focus is maintenance and prevention because we know that a well-maintained car can run reliably for a long time. Because we’re certified and experienced with BMW, MINI, Audi, Volkswagen, and others, we make sure your vehicle sticks to its factory-scheduled maintenance plan, which may include oil changes, brake replacements, air filter changes, tire rotations, and other services. But when something does break, our ASE-certified technicians will make sure your car gets back on the road. We’ve worked on tens of thousands of vehicles, so if you need brake repairs, transmission services, check engine light diagnostics, suspension repairs, or anything else, we’re always happy to help. Best of all, if you want to improve your European vehicle’s performance levels, we’ve partnered with Dinan and APR to bring you the best in aftermarket performance parts. Whether you’re interested in engine tuning, a better suspension system, or other upgrades, our shop is authorized to handle them all.

Why And How We Do It

Our goal is to inspire and delight our customers by repairing their vehicles in a warm, friendly environment. Quality auto services are at our operations’ core, which is why we’ve partnered with TechNet to provide a 24-month/24,000-mile nationwide warranty. It’s also why we’ve equipped our garage with the best equipment and technologies on the market. Plus, we believe in honesty and integrity, so if we cannot diagnose or repair your vehicle, there’s no fee on your end. Catalpa Street Garage is open Monday through Friday, so next time your European car needs maintenance or repairs, stop by and see us at 2844 Soquel Ave, Santa Cruz, CA 95062.
