Rio Rancho Automotive Repair Shop

Browns Automotive opened our Rio Rancho location on July 15th 2019. It has always been a goal of ours to have a westside facility to help serve customers cars and trucks west of the Rio Grande. The shop is located at 2203 Golf Coarse Rd. It had been abandoned by the previous owner but not before all the equipment was removed! We gave the interior a fresh paint job, remodeled the office and coated the shop floors. We take pride in having a clean facility. This helps to prevent getting vehicles dirty while repairing them. We have two new 10,000 lb lifts, one 12,000 lb lift for working on large trucks and a new drive on alignment rack with new highly advanced alignment equipment. We can align about anything that comes into the shop!

The great people of Rio Rancho have been so welcoming. We are very excited to be a part of this wonderful community. Next store to the shop is Café Bella, a fantastic locally owned coffee shop that serves the best coffee in Rio Rancho! While you are getting your vehicle serviced by our ASE Certified Mechanics you can walk next store and enjoy a snack and beverage.
