Carl Walker, Owner, Master ASE Certified

I am the proud owner of Carl’s Car Care in Glendale, Arizona. I have been involved in the auto industry since high school where I started to drag race motorcycles which later turned me on to racing cars. After many years of helping other automotive businesses grow, I decided to open a repair shop of my own in 2005 which soon became a Tech-Net Professional Auto Service Center.

Over the past 40+ years, I have engaged myself in every aspect of the automotive repair business, from a heavy line technician to a service manager, and have achieved the highest certification level possible, ASE Master Technician. The certifications I have obtained include: automatic transmission, manual transmission and axles, brakes, electrical/electronic systems, heating/air conditioning systems, engine repair and performance as well as advance levels in engine performance.

I have always had a passion for honest and great work, and that’s just what you will receive when you walk through my shops front door.

Mark, Shop Foreman, ASE Master Certified Technician

Mark’s love for working on cars began as a young child. Growing up in Tonawanda, NY he enjoyed working side by side with his dad, a former mechanic and car restorer.

Mark performed his first oil change at the age of 9. After moving to Arizona at the age of 10 his interest in the automotive repair industry continued to grow. While attending automotive technology classes throughout high school he accepted a scholarship to Universal Technical Institute.

Mark is now an ASE master certified technician. He holds ASE certification in Engine repair, automatic transmission/transaxle, manual drive train and axles, suspension and steering, brakes, electrical/electronic systems, heating and air conditioning, engine performance, advanced engine and performance specialist, exhaust systems, auto maintenance and light repair,  and automobile service consultant.

In his free time, Mark enjoys camping with his wife and daughter as well as hunting with his friends.

Rikki, Office Assistant

Rikki was born and raised in Southern California. She moved out to Arizona in 2014 to pursue her dream in becoming a Registered Nurse.

Currently, she is going to school to obtain her Bachelors Degree in Nursing. She has always had a passion for helping others and is always willing to go out of her way to help those in need.

When Rikki is not in the office, you can find her at school, off studying, or at home with her fiancé, their little one, and 4 dogs. She loves spending time outdoors camping and fishing and also enjoys doing the typical girly things!

Dave, ASE Master Certified Technician

David has 21 years of experience as a Master Technician with certifications in engine repair, automatic transmission/transaxle, manual drivetrain and axles, suspension and steering, brakes, electrical/electronic systems, heating and air conditioning, engine performance, and auto maintenance and light repair plus multiple continuing education classes to keep him up to date on the latest innovations in the automotive repair field.

David is originally from Arvada, Colorado, moving to Arizona in 1994 to attend Universal Technical Institute, where he obtained his Associate’s degree in Automotive Technology. The Valley of the Sun is also where he met his wife in 1994 and today they have 2 teenage children.

An avid hunter, you will find David out in the desert most weekends, scouting, hunting or camping with his family.

Charlie, ASE Certified Technician

Charles originally from Medina, Ohio, moved to Phoenix Arizona at the age of five. He grew up playing various sports but it wasn’t until his early teen years where he gained an interest in working on cars. His father, who had a career in the automotive industry as an Auto Tech for 40+ years was a huge influence.

Charles engaged himself in many automotive classes during his four years at Greenway High School and, soon after graduation, following his fathers foot steps, he started his own career in the Automotive Repair Industry.

When Charles is not elbows deep in a car, you can find him spending time with his wife of 25 years and with his two daughters. For fun, he likes to spend time outdoors hunting, fishing, and camping with his family and loves anything to do with car racing.

Daniel, General Service Technician

Daniel has been working on cars since he was old enough to drive. He later turned his passion for cars into his dream career and became part of the Carl’s Car Care family.

Daniel has obtained an Associates Degree in Automotive Technology from Glendale Community College, is ASE certified in brakes and is currently on the path to furthering his education to become an ASE certified Master Technician.

Daniel is a born and raised native and his love for cars started in high school where he would street race cars with his buddies.

When he is not at the shop you could find him practicing archery, playing golf, trying out new foods or hanging out with his fiancée and their two dogs.

OUR CUSTOMERS SAY

At Carl’s Car Care we know word of mouth can make or break a reputation. We have worked hard to build trust and honesty and realize it is an important decision factor when picking a car repair place.

I was worried my little two-door wouldn’t even make it home from work. I took it to Carl’s Car Care, and in no time they had it up and running like new! When it comes to quality and service, Carl’s Car Care has never let me down.
Kris Michaels
Many years ago we trusted Carl and his team with our vehicles and then we had to go to the dealership for warranty purposes. Now we are back and once again the service has been exceptional and honest. Thank you for being trustworthy in a day when many are not.

I have been going to Carl’s for a few years now. He has worked on many of my vehicle’s. They are very honest and do great work. After having bad experiences at other places it is so nice to go to someone who won’t rip you off and who knows what they are doing. Thank you to all the staff at Carl’s

OUR REPUTATION

Our excellence in serving the greater Phoenix area has established our solid reputation in the automotive repair industry. Often other service centers refer their customers to us when unable to diagnose/repair an issue.
This solid reputation and peer recognition has been achieved through the commitment of our ASE Master Certified Technicians.

OUR COMMITMENT

We will not start a repair without first giving you a complete estimate of the cost and amount of work required to restore your car to top driving conditions. Should an unforseen cost arise during the repair process, we will call you to explain the situation and get your approval prior to performing any additional work. We will treat you with trust and honesty throughout the entire diagnostic and repair process.
