The Choice For Your Local Auto Shop!

If you're looking for a local auto shop that you can trust, consider Dependable Car Care. Since 2001, Dependable Car Care has been providing our friends and neighbors in Ventura with dependable, trustworthy auto repair services. Whether your vehicle needs a minor tune-up or a major overhaul, our trained service technicians are skilled at quickly diagnosing and pinpointing solutions to problems, saving you both time and money.

Our journey began with Dan Winter in 2001 when he opened the doors.  He founded Dependable Car Care in 2001 after working in the auto repair industry since 1986.  Working at different auto repair shops in different capacities over the years gave him great insight into how he wanted to run his shop.  He wanted to provide high quality auto repair all while keeping his services at a fair price.

Dependable Car Care originally started as a one man operation, and was built by providing quality service at a fair price. In 2004, Dan could no longer keep up with the work load by himself and hired his first technician. Since then, the Dependable Car Care auto center has grown significantly while maintaining their high standards of quality, business, and personal touch.
