Routine Maintenance

40,000, 80,000 and 120,000 services at a much better price than the dealer.

Same factory service as the dealer, with better customer service, and it will not void your warranty, since we use the manufacture recommended parts.

The reviews are in…

Fantastic outfit. Autobahn in Santa Rosa referred them to me as a courtesy since I live in Healdsburg. Roger was knowledgeable about the needs for my Audi A7 and Caitlin was a breeze to work with pertaining to scheduling and reminders. Highly recommend!

Alex Canton

This is the only shop I trust with my Audi RS7 and also my Audi RS5. Whatever issues I may have, whether it’s complex European car stuff, or regular maintenance, I am always confident Roger and his team can handle it. Great customer service too!

Greg Tucker

Fantastic service. Good prices. Had my Porsche back on the road in no time.

Congratulations to Roger and Caitlin who have recently purchased Capricorn from Andrew, who has been my favorite mechanic for years. The new owners offer great service and value, as did Andrew. The office is clean and efficient, run smoothly by Caitlin, and Roger is a very qualified professional mechanic with deep experience and a very good work ethic and demeanor. He kept my 2002 Toyota Landcruiser for a bit of extra time after replacing the timing belt to adjust repeatedly until the engine purrs. Much appreciated. We’ll be back.

Roger has now fixed the AC and a wonky power window in my 2020 Volvo S60 T6 Inscription. Both fixes would have likely cost me 2-3 x at Smothers. This is an excellent, fair mechanic run by good people. Highly recommended for European cars.

Took it to Roger and he said he would look at it at 8am. At 11:30am he called me and said it was fixed!  WHAT!?!? HOW!?!? Now I’m elated!

He and his wife are very nice people. Honest and reliable. He found and fixed the problem that no other shop could even diagnose! The best part is that there was no up selling and his cost of repair was very reasonable and fair.  I know because I recently sold my auto repair business I owned for 20 years.

Thank you Roger! It is so nice to know that there is a local family ran auto repair business that is trustworthy and is really there to serve the community with excellence, fairly and humbly.

I had just traveled about two hours to get to Healdsburg, to meet my daughter. My oil light had come on two or three times during my trip, even though I had the oil changed about six “pandemic” months ago. Hmm… I thought I had better get my 14-year-old car checked. I drove over to Capricorn Automotive to see if they could help me out. They dropped everything, immediately checked the oil level, and found it was just a bit low. They kindly and complimentary added about 1.5 quarts. All was well once again. I am very appreciative of their help and generosity. Makes me want to move to Healdsburg! Thank you, Capricorn Automotive!
