  • Greg & Julia Hochhalter


    Owners Greg and Julia were high-school sweethearts and were married just after graduating from Sumner High School in 1981. They spent 4 years in Italy, while Greg served as a Military Police in the US Army. In 1985, Greg began his career at Auburn Foreign & Domestic Car, sweeping floors and doing general maintenance. Julia became a stay-at-home (working) mom, who has always loved children. Julia gained valuable skills in business management when she created and staffed her own small business, offering housekeeping services throughout Pierce and King Counties.

    Greg and Julia saw a great opportunity to own a family business after purchasing Auburn Foreign and Domestic automotive service and repair in 2005 from the original owner. From 2009-2013, their daughter Natalie enjoyed greeting customers shutting, cashiering and helping out the service and parts departments with a smile before getting married, having a son, and daughter. Now Natalie has decided to follow in her Mother’s footsteps and be a stay at home (working) mother. Paxton is an unstoppable fearless little guy who loves big diggers and trucks and Mila is such a beautiful little girl already! We will keep you posted on her interests as she grows.

    Their son Alex, also worked in the family automotive business from 2006-2011, doing general building and grounds maintenance as well as washing, towel drying and keeping your cars sparkling clean and vacuumed after every service. Alex worked his way up into the Parts Department and became the assistant Parts manager, before getting into bigger ventures on his own.


  • Nearly half-a-million miles logged on my two vehicles and both have run perfectly under the care of Auburn Foreign Car. Latest visit in my 13+ year affiliation with these folks was last month. I was impressed once again with their attention to detail, clear and thorough communication, and outstanding diagnostic and repair work. Over the years, I have never once needed a second opinion, a re-do by somebody else, or a course in anger management after dealing with this outfit. I figure that if I am shelling out my hard-earned cash, a merchant had better deserve to have it. AFC deserves to have it

  • Great people, trustworthy and they provide great professional service. Mechanic team is spot on and skilled. Jerry and Greg always greet you with a smile and make sure you understand what is going on with your cars. They really go above and beyond for the customer. You get what you pay for at this shop, as they use only quality OEM parts on repairs. Won't take my cars anywhere else.

  • I have had three vehicles maintained here and just love the friendly and efficient service. I really am treated like family. My last repair on our Saab 9-3 was great! Thanks you guys!

  • Excellent customer service, Kyle was great at explaining issues and helping prioritize into a budget before beginning the work. Also, the job was done quickly and the car was even washed and vacuumed. Far better experience than the service center at BMW Northwest in Tacoma. Wow!
