“My shop is not like any other shop. Once you show up, you will never go anywhere else. I have been in business for over 20 years. My advertising strategy to date has been to do a good job and the word will get out. This has been very effective. However, there are those people who may never meet a person whose car I have fixed. People who are in need of HONEST estimates, QUALITY workmanship, and FRIENDLY customer service. You! So come meet me and my crew. We don’t suck.”
The Yost Auto Warranty
All of our repairs are covered under a 24-month/24K mile nation-wide warranty, unless otherwise specified.

- jump start
- fluid & coolant delivery
(you must pay for the costs of the fluids delivered). The road-side assistance will reimburse up to $75 per occurrence.
Michael Yost, Owner
The O.G. Yoster, Michael, is a man who is hard to define. A true mechanic in an old Austin way. He is the "Leslie" to the Austin Automotive World - a legend, a lion in the vehicular jungle. Though you don't often see the paparazzi following him, you can be sure this mechanical star is being followed at all times. Michael started his business in the early 90's, in his own driveway, grew his company into a storage unit, expanded into a second, and now, you can find him hopping between his two shops, both centrally located on North Lamar and close to home. There is continued talk of growth because there are Yosters everywhere! A career that began from of a boy's undeniable love of wrenches and grease, Michael's skill sets started small, but grew exponentially! Now, he has cultivated a whole new standard in the automotive industry - the Yost Automotive standard: "Do it right the first time, get to know the customer, not just the car, and care about your business as a whole". A man who smiles just talking about the infamous Anna, his wife, Michael radiates with fatherly love when speaking about his kids, Michael and Mya. Michael can be found sailing on the water, on his bike at social rides, or in his custom-built race car, a new past time he's picking up. So come on by and hang out at one of his shops! You'll be sure to catch a glimpse of a true O.G. Austin celeb.
