Our Story

Roger Clary is a 3rd generation mechanic, whose expertise have been carefully honed over the last 25 years in the auto shop world. Beginning at his cousin’s head shop at the ripe age of 15, and then moving on to his uncle’s auto repair shop shortly there after, these early days catapulted him into his technician career. Luxury vehicles have always been his specialty as he followed his initial years at Lexus by moving over to the Smother’s European Mercedes team. There he spent 17 years; his last 7 of which he successfully grew the Sprinter department from a 1 man to a 7 man team.

Roger’s hands on work experience and incredible diagnostic skill, compounded with his integrity and easygoing nature, makes him a welcome addition to the Healdsburg community. His goal at Capricorn Automotive is to build upon the incredible foundation that existed here decades before him, and alongside his wife, Caitlin, provide impeccable and personable service to the greater Sonoma County region.

Our Mission & Vision

Capricorn Automotive is a full service repair shop specializing in European Cars. We have over 25 years of combined experience in servicing Mercedes Benz, Porsche, BMW, Volkswagen, and Audi products.

Have a new car and think only the dealership can service it? Not true. While there will always be some items that only the dealership can provide, we have four different computer scan tools (with access to two others from a partner shop) that can handle all of your needs. These tools allow us to repair systems in your car well beyond the engine.

A few examples include: Mercedes Convertible Top, Audi Electronic Parking Brake, Porsche Air Bag repair and reset, BMW Module Coding, VW Throttle Body Relearn, etc. While we specialize in these brands, we are a full service facility that can handle all makes and models.
