Auto Shop at Wright-Patt AFB Offers Options for Do-It-Yourselfers > Wright-Patterson AFB > Item Display

WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio — Need repair work? The Wright-Patt Auto Hobby Shop offers customers in-store vehicle repair, as well as the ability for the do-it-yourselfer, at a fraction of the cost.

Located in the Kittyhawk area of ​​Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, near the pharmacy, the Auto Hobby Shop provides information, tools and space for those wishing to use the self-help service option to make the necessary repairs.

“The workshop’s DIY section is where you can attempt any job you want, with guidance and advice from the staff if you hit a roadblock,” said Chris Savvidis, director of the automotive workshop. “Do-it-yourself or do-it-yourself is very popular, and we have two full-time mechanics and an assistant available on site to help with repairs, if needed.”

Savvidis says customers regularly call his store with questions about the repairs they need.

“Communication with customers is very important to ensure mechanics and customers are on the same page,” he added. “To do this, customers simply provide their vehicle’s make and model information to shop personnel. Mechanics are then able to ensure that they are able to carry out the repairs or see if the customer wishes to carry out the repairs themselves. »

The Auto Hobby Shop offers service and repair by shop personnel for oil changes; tire rotations, replacements and balancing; brakes, suspension, steering, wheel alignment, tune-ups, “check engine” light diagnostics, starters, alternators and most general work, depending on the depth required.

Up to 25 spaces for vehicles are available and can be rented by the day, week or month. There is a fenced storage area for cars, trucks or RVs.

The store also offers a resale bundle for anything with wheels, where staff can sell vehicles for a $30 per month listing fee. Anything over 21 feet is $60 per month.

The store is open Tuesday through Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Hours are 8:00 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. on Saturdays and it is closed on Sundays and Mondays.
