Family-owned and operated Tucson auto repair for over 70 years.
Kim SooterOwnerKim came home in 2009 to learn the family business so that her father could retire. The importance of family, integrity and history made it important for her to carry out her grandfather Joe’s dream. She has solely run the business since and bought the business in 2016. She has taken automotive classes through Pima Community College, is the secretary for the Tucson Chapter ASA, and sits on the board for the automotive JTED program. Kim’s hobbies include cycling, water skiing, camping, hiking and just about anything else outdoors.
Paul WesnerTechnicianI have worked with the Sooter family business for 42 years. It's a pleasure to work with a very honest organization. I'm married to my wonderful wife of 45 years. We have two children. I am fortunate to have a great employer allowing me to work part time. This gives me more time to enjoy things I like to do: cycling, hiking and fishing. This also gives me time to fulfill my dream of cycling coast to coast. Right now, life is good.
BryantTechnicianMy name is Bryant. I am 40 years old, and I have been a technician in the automotive repair industry for 20 years. I have a love for fixing and solving problems on vehicles and take pride in the work I do for a living. I'm a father of three amazing boys. I'm an avid hiker and love to explore Mother Nature. On teh weekends, you'll find me hiking, camping, exploring, four-wheeling, camping, road-tripping, or anything outdoors. I also play drms and love photography.
MikeTechnicianI've been working as a mechanic professionally for just over a year and a half, but I've worked on cars as a hobby most of my life. I enjoy my work and am always ready for the next challenge. In my free time, I enjoy spending time wiht my wife and two kids at home or going to the park. I also enjoy watching Formula 1 on Sundays with my son.
AaronTechnicianI grew up tearing apart engines and putting them back together with my dad. From there my love of working on vehicles grew and I wanted to expand my knowledge; so I went into an automotive full service shop where I learned the ins and outs of fixing vehicles. In my time away from the shop I enjoy spending it with my wife and our son. We enjoy camping and off roading as much as we can.

I had such a great experience here! My car had a chronic rattle in the back that just got worse on Tucson'a bumpy roads. The Ford dealer told me they would charge me $130 just to tell me what was wrong, and Sooter's charged me only $50 to fix the problem. The staff were great, the office dachshund was a sweetheart and answered all my pet-related questions, and they were done hours sooner than they thought they would be.
Also love that their location is right downtown instead of out in the burbs.
I have been going to Sooters for almost 30 years. The work is great, as are the prices. I have never worked with anyone so honest. Once, after being stumped by a problem, and spending a couple of hours at it, Randy declined payment ("I didn’t do anything."), and recommended me to a specialist that he trusted (it all worked out). I have never been disappointed in the service, or the treatment I received. There is a reason that they are now in their 3rd generation of operation…
Once again Sooter's Auto Repair provided outstanding service! I bought front and rear bumpers, along with a winch and storage vault, arranging with Kim to have all installed to my surprise in one day!! Installation was going fine, until Mechanic James called bringing a damaged storage vault to my attention, which had been damaged during delivery. James contacted all parties necessary to return the damaged vault and arrange for the delivery of a new vault! Installation of the bumpers and winch were professionally completed and my Willy's Jeep looks great!! I bring all my POV's to Sooter's Auto Repair for service and every time leave completely satisfied!! Thank you!!
