Welcome to About Us

Hello and thank you for taking the time to visit our website and get to know the family behind the Espinoza Auto Experts business.  Let me start by introducing myself, my name is Gustavo Espinoza and my love for fixing cars goes as far back as I can remember.  As a small boy, I used to enjoy watching my dad perform miracles as an auto body man turning some unfortunate heap of metal back into a repaired and restored vehicle that his customers were always thoroughly satisfied.  I guess you could say that my brother and I were destined to be in the automotive field by following our dad’s footsteps and eventually making them our own.  As I entered early adulthood it became clear to me that my talent for automotive care was great enough to begin a career in the automotive industry.  I attended Sequoia Institute in 1995, where I achieved my Associates Degree in Automotive Technology.  I graduated with honors and spent approximately three years in the general auto repair and smog business.  I feel fortunate to have had the opportunity to launch my career with some great independent shops that allowed me to take my passion for the industry to the next level by fine tuning my automotive skills.  I obtained my Smog License in 1996 and two years later, enthusiastically joined the dealership world where I gained expertise specializing in Nissan and Infiniti vehicles.  I am certified as a Master Technician in all categories of the Auto Repair Industry for Automotive Service Excellence.  I truly enjoy repairing and maintaining cars as if they were my own.  My goal is to assure proper repairs and service with the best pricing while never compromising the quality of work that we believe all of our customers deserve.  We strive to become your #1 choice and dealership alternative for automotive services.
My younger brother, Jose has been working as my apprentice for the last two and a half years and it has been an awesome experience to have been in a position to play an important part in his life and having this opportunity to guide him and teach him hands on skills that I developed over years of training has been rewarding in more ways than one!  Not just because he is my only younger brother, Jose is an awesome person just to be around, he is literally my right hand man and he is equally dedicated to providing our customers with the up most integrity and service excellence.  He is a certified Smog Technician and is continually keeping current with automotive industry standards. 
Last but never least, my reasons for waking up every day to make an honest living.  Have you ever heard of the old saying, “behind every great man there is a great woman?”  Well, I have been blessed with the greatest of the great behind me!  My wife Nichole and our three beautiful daughters, LuLu, Puka and Miss V!  I am so blessed to be backed by my family, an irreplaceable team, making this dream of having a successful family owned and operated business a reality.  We welcome you to Espinoza Auto Experts and thanking for choosing us for all your auto care needs, from our family to yours, stay too blessed to be stressed.
