About us

When John opened Russell’s Automotive in 1979, his goal then, as it is today, is to provide his community with the best repair shop and the best staff of mechanics and technicians in the Conejo Valley.

John Russell, the owner, is a Thousand Oaks High School, and a National Technical Automotive School Graduate. John (new family photo) has been a Thousand Oaks resident for over thirty years.

The staff of automotive technicians at Russell’s total over 150 years of diagnosis and repair experience. This knowledge coupled with the latest computerized equipment, means you’ll always get a speedy and more accurate diagnosis, limiting the time your vehicle will be in the shop and reducing overall repair expenses.

Russell’s operates out of a 6,000 square foot facility. Inside the shop you will find nine lifts surrounded by all of the latest automotive equipment, tools and supplies necessary to do any service job.

On the Service Writer’s desk sits state-of-the-art computers for the most current automotive technical information available. With our highly sophisticated customer and vehicle tracking system, designed exclusively for the automotive industry, repair and service records with complete labor and parts descriptions are tracked by customer and vehicle. A complete description of all work performed is printed for your records on the final work order.

Russell’s Automotive was recognized for its Automotive Service by winning the Best Shop Mechanics and the Best Repair Shop for nine years since 1996.
