A 45-year family legacy of integrity and quality

Len Mertz, founder of Len’s Auto Repair

Len’s Auto Repair believes it’s important for customers to know the story of how it came to be, as it’s central to the business’ ethos and to keeping the memory of Len alive.

On March 4, 1974, Leonard Mertz began what has now become his legacy. He purchased an old three-bay gas station in the Overland area of St. Louis County and opened Len’s Auto Repair.

For the next 32 years, Len worked tirelessly to build a solid reputation for quality auto repair and honest service.

Len worked alone until eventually his sons Kim, Jon and Greg joined him. Now, Jon is the Service Writer at the Overland location and Kim and Greg are ASE-certified Master Technicians at both locations. Greg’s wife, Marit, oversees the business operations.

In 2003 the Overland shop expanded from three to six bays and in 2012 the second location opened in Cottleville.

Len’s Auto Repair is known as a neighborly repair facility with exceptional technical expertise – a place where customers can have their vehicles repaired and serviced by honest mechanics and their car questions answered by experts.

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

The Mertz family and team at Len’s Auto Repair is grateful for the privilege of serving customers for the past 45 years, and they look forward to seeing you in the future.
