Minneapolis Lake St, MN Precision Tune Auto Care

Our shop has been owned by Minneapolis native Tim Gleason since 1999. Tim owns two Precision Tune Auto Care centers and prides himself on building a great car repair team to serve you. Manager Blake Hatchett has been running the place since 2003, and Head Mechanic Donavan worked with Tim before he bought the shop 20 years ago. Assistant Manager Mike joined us last summer and he brought along Eric to help us keep up with the repair work. Eric and Tim live in South Mpls and Dave (our Mazda expert) lives just three blocks away.

We never know if our next customer might be a next door neighbor or Tim's kids' Montesorri school teacher (Christian) or May Day Parade companions (Pam and Colleen)!

We are located at 33rd Avenue and East Lake Street, about halfway between the Light Rail tracks and the Mississippi River.

Currently we have 3 free Courtesy Cars but they are popular so make sure to request one if you need it.

Thanks for your business. And remember we fix everything from tires, alignments, and brakes to motor and transmission replacement.
