Auto Shop Frontage | CoAuto

As soon as you enter our facility, you may wonder if you're in the right place. Sure, the address says 2155 Dickerson Road, but there's a lot more visual stimulation than you any repair you've ever been to. We have a beautiful waiting area, full of plants, local art, handmade jewelry and ceramics, large paintings and photography. CoAuto is truly full of personality, and has art for every personality type. The cleanliness of the shop may be what you notice first. And we keep our waiting room quiet and relaxing to customers can enjoy our amenities in peace while we service their vehicle. Just as our customers need a Starbucks fix, we invite them to enjoy our complimentary coffee, tea & snacks. Our shop's culture is unbeatable; beautiful shop floors, bright white lighting, amazing murals painted along the shop walls on both the interior and exterior.

CoAuto has 5 Programs that set us apart:


Car Giveaway Program

CoAuto gives away one car per year to a local veteran in need, chosen by the Veterans Resource Center of Nevada. It is an honor to provide reliable transportation for men and women who served our country.


High School Internship Program

CoAuto invites local high school students to visit our shop and shadow our technicians. We mentor and challenge them to see if auto repair is a possible career path. Our future relies on the youth of our local community.


Community Education Program

CoAuto offers classes and workshops in the field of automotive education, maintenance, and basic automotive knowledge. We empower our community to make educated, knowledgeable and confident repair decisions. Classes are held quarterly and the cost is $40 with a $20 CoAuto cash rebate on their next service. (Custom classes available upon request)


Local Art Display Program

CoAuto exhibits artwork in the customer waiting area, showcases local talent, and gives our creative community more opportunity for promotion. CoAuto does not collect commissions for the sale of any art. We simply enjoy giving our artists more exposure.


Reverse Your Carbon Footprint Program

CoAuto partners with the Arbor Day Foundation and plants one tree with every oil change we perform. Our hope is to provide a little more oxygen for our universe and reverse our carbon footprint.

The Arbor Day Foundation is the largest nonprofit membership organization dedicated to planting trees, with more than 1 million members, supporters, and valued partners and a mission to inspire people to plant, nurture, and celebrate trees.

Our vision is to help others understand and use trees as a solution to many of the global issues we face today, including air quality, water quality, climate change, deforestation, poverty, and hunger.

Logo | CoAuto will make a donation to plant one tree on behalf of each client for each auto repair service or oil service provided. See our support grow.

1619 trees planted.
