A few words about us
The Master Technicians, Inc. was founded in 1993 by Jimmy and Roni Mullenix. After working for a corporate owned Toyota dealership for many years, Jimmy decided it was time to step out on his own and start a dealership alternative with superior customer service, affordability, and quality or work.
Over the 20 years we have been operating, our customer based has consistently grown. We realize that if we do whats right and provide the best service possible, customers will tell their friends, and our reputation proves this. As the automotive technologies have advanced over the years, so too have our services. As new technologies come out, our staff are being trained on them.
Our highly trained and experienced staff has over 100 years of combined automotive repair and maintenance experience. Our hardworking team has been voted Best of the Best by readers of the Auburn journal many years in a row. Our shop Foreman, Terry Allwein, was voted Best Of The Best Automotive Technician and ASE Certified Master Technician Scott Chiaratti was also voted Best Of The Best Automotive Technician. In 2013 Stacy L. Graham, Managing Partner, was awarded Business Woman Of The Year by the Auburn Journal.
All of our repairs come with a 24 month or 24,000 mile warranty. We use genuine factory parts, and we’re the cleanest shop in Placer County. We are your “Preventive Maintenance Experts” for your Toyota, Honda, Lexus and Acura vehicles.
