About Castle Automotive
Castle Automotive is the auto repair shop you have been looking for. Aren't we all looking for the shop that is not only going to fix our car problems, but educate us about our vehicle and teach us how to prevent problems in the future?
What differentiates us
When you come to Castle Automotive, your car has finally found its home away from home. Castle Automotive feels that the people of Los Angeles have to put up with enough smoke and mirrors when it comes to car repairs so come to Van Nuys for the real thing. Castle's staff is here to diagnose your car's problems and repair them. They want to get you back on the road as quickly as possible.
How we were trained
Ara, the shop owner, is the first person that you will meet when you come to Castle Automotive. He started working with his father 16 years ago. Ara received a Bachelor of Science in Industrial Technology from San Jose State University and is an ASE Master Technician with certifications in the following: engine repair, engine performance, electrical/electronic systems, suspension and steering, brakes, heating and air conditioning, automatic transmission/transaxle - manual drive train and axles - advanced engine performance. Ara is also a licensed California State Smog Technician.
Why we love what we do
Castle Automotive's owner, Ara Derderian, and his staff not only want your business now, they also want to see you happy with their work and coming back for regular check-ups for the life of the vehicle. They have a love affair with cars that starts with diagnosing problems and ends with hearing cars start up and drive off the lot performing the way they did when new.
