Tony Solorio and his business AUTOTECH succeed at doing what many auto repair shops in our area only claim to do? They find the problem and they fix it and they fix it well for both the consumer and many of the local dealerships, by handling their fleet maintenance. Only, They Do It Best! AUTOTECH is Main (MPM) Performance Magazine’s choice for “Riverside’s # One” Automobile Repair Shop! And it’s true.
Open six days a week (closed Sundays), the shop specializes in General Preventive Maintenance; Smog, Brakes (official brake adjusting station) & Lamp Certification, Electrical, Computers & Fuel Injection, Troubleshooting, Tune-up, Fleet Service; AC & Cooling System Service.
Now I know that that’s a lot of hats to wear, but when you do the best work in town your customers always look your way when their car screams. “FIX IT! FIX ME!”
“We’re a One Stop, Full Service Shop,” Big Tony Solorio announced as he sat down at the front counter of his repair shop and seriously stared straight into my weary writer’s eyes.
“I moved to the building across the street in August 1992 and then, two years ago, I bought this building, both are located across from North High School. That’s when I began to feel really complete! I started this business because I wanted to fix a person’s automobile RIGHT! I had seen so many patch jobs that they began to make me feel sick! I thought to myself, why can’t this be done? Well, I now work twelve hours a day, minimum, but that’s O.K. If that’s what it takes for the job to be completed, so be it!”
While Tony was speaking, I noticed the passion in his eyes, the sternness of his voice and the strength of his statement. He was a man on fire, possessed with his career. Tony Solorio is also a man who constantly utilizes his peripheral vision, making sure he could talk to me and at the same time keeps a watchful eye on his business so it will continue to operate properly.
“The hardest part of this business is trying to keep good workers like the people who work here. For example, when I was a kid I had an uncle who taught himself how to be an auto mechanic and he was darn good, too! Today that could never happen. “Quality Technicians” must go to some type of school or higher learning institution, just to be able to use the special scanners. Everything in the world today is about computers, digital, etc. and it’s virtually impossible for one’s education to live in the past.
In the near future, Tony Solorio and AUTOTECH will celebrate a much-deserved Grand Opening. With his Right Hand Man. Bob and his All Around Girl Friday. Ada. or any of the fine mechanics who work at the shop, by his side. Tony Solorio and AUTOTECH’S great reputation will continue to grow, shining on toward prosperity. If you find that the other repair shops around town aren’t serving your car properly and you’ve finally decided to use true professionals, why not give AUTOTECH a telephone call today at 951-784-1090. You’ll be glad that you did.
I ONLY HAVE ONE THING TO SAY TO TONY AND HIS # 0NE REPAIR SHOP! YOU GO BOY. YOU GO! MPM
