At an early age Paul Garrett (owner of YHS Automotive Service Center) began helping his father work on their vehicles in the driveway. There were always repairs to help out with. “We did everything from oil changes to clutch replacements out in front of the house.” Paul’s love for motorcycles also played a critical role in where he is today. “I would ride a motorcycle until it broke, then fix it and sell it just to buy another one to do the same”. Before Paul knew it, he was working at a Texaco gas station pulling transmissions in and out of vehicles for the owner/mechanic Smiity in Bosque Farms NM. At that time, Paul found himself as an instrumental part in building two race cars and working in the pits (officially a gear head at that point with a true love of what he still does today). Shortly afterward, Paul attained an Associate’s Degree from the Arizona Automotive Institute, considered to be the best automotive trade school at the time. Paul has worked for Honda/ Acura dealers and independent shops alike. “I always wanted my own shop. I enjoy helping people and enjoy making sure my customers don’t have to worry about their vehicle”.
The exposure within dealerships meant that from the outset of his automotive service and mechanical career, Paul received the highest level of factory training on a consistent basis. Ever since he has worked on Honda’s and Acura’s. He’s carried a personal emphasis on continued training as an ASE Certified Master Technician from the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence for more than 22 years.
YHS Automotive Service Center started in May of 2013. We started off as a Honda/Acura specialty shop since those are the vehicles I’ve worked on for so many years. As we started to grow and build a great clientele, customers began to ask if I could work on other makes and models. So over the years YHS has grown into a full service shop for all makes and models. We now have a European vehicle specialist, Two Honda/Acura specialists including myself and Technicians with well-rounded back grounds for other Asian and Domestic vehicles. We now have over 98 years combined automotive repair and service experience to better serve our clients.
