Neighborhood mechanic expands from 6 to 10 bays in Cottleville

Lens auto repairOn March 4, 1974, Leonard Mertz began what has now become his legacy. He purchased an old three bay gas station in Overland and opened Len’s Auto Repair. For the next 32 years he worked tirelessly to build a solid reputation for quality auto repair and honest automobile advice.

In the beginning Len worked alone, but eventually his sons Kim, Jon and Greg joined him in the business. Jon is the service writer in Overland, and Kim and Greg serve as ASE certified Master Technicians at both shop locations.

In 2003 the Overland shop was expanded to six bays and in 2012 a second six bay location was opened in Cottleville. Len’s Auto Repair continued to be known as a neighborly repair facility with exceptional technical expertise. It is a place where customers can get their vehicles repaired by honest mechanics, have their tires inflated or car fluids checked at any time and have their auto repair questions answered by experts.

Len’s Auto Repair employs 10 ASE certified Master Technicians and it holds the elite designation as an ASE Blue Seal service facility. The mechanics work on import and domestic light cars and trucks, specializing in drivability diagnostics. There are few mechanical problems they have not seen before, and few mechanical problems they cannot fix.

In order to be even more accessible to customers, the Cottleville shop is adding four new service bays, to be completed next month. The shop’s expansion will mean even better and more efficient service for customers.

Len’s Auto Repair is grateful for the privilege of serving the Cottleville community and invites everyone to visit the new and improved shop for any and all automobile repairs.
