Stop by and see why our motto is “Honest Repairs For Honest Prices”

Fairfield, IA Auto Repair


Bob has been selling and servicing vehicles in Fairfield and southeast Iowa for over 30 years. Our business has grown from a one man shop in 1983 to an 8-bay shop with 7 ASE Certified Technicians, plus 4 additional employees to take care of all your vehicle’s needs.

Bob’s main focus all comes down to the motto that still represents the business today: “Honest repairs for honest prices.” Having a technician you can trust is important to both you and your family, which is why we always take extra care to communicate openly with our customers, find the most affordable solutions to your vehicle’s problems, and get you back on the road quickly and safely. We take pride in our work and prove it with our nationwide 24 Month/24,000 Mile warranty through the NAPA AutoCare Program.

  • I have been taking my car to Bob’s for 5 or 6 years now and have had nothing but excellent service along with very reasonable costs. Honestly have to say that Bob’s Auto is a place of integrity, friendliness and quality! Rare find. Can recommend without hesitation.
