When you need Austin auto repairs or maintenance, do you just pull into the first big chain you see because “they’re all the same?” Do you hesitate to hand your vehicle over to the techs because you’re sure they’re going to overcharge and under-explain? Can you actually use the phrase “my mechanic” with confidence – or you even know the name of the mechanic working on your prized possession?

If you’ve ever had reason to feel unsatisfied with your auto shop experience, then it’s time you talked to us.

Meet Dwayne Saunders

Dwayne Saunders took a long, hard road to reach his current status as owner/operator of Genuine Automotive & Diesel – but he wouldn’t have it any other way since he feels that the best part of life is the struggle. After a hard adolescence living mostly on his own, Dwayne was still struggling at age 22 when he finally found his way into the automotive industry via one of the country’s largest tire chains. From there he moved into automotive repair in 1996, working his way up the management ladder at a leading repair service in Round Rock. Here he learned priceless lessons from the owner (Dave), who taught him the value of putting customer relationships before money on every single job. To this day, Dwayne always seeks to win lifetime fans instead of just focusing on short-term profit.

In January of 2017, Dwayne put these life lessons to good use by opening Genuine Automotive & Diesel in the Lakeway area, with the encouragement of countless people who believed in him and urged him to bring his brand of customer service and automotive skill to area residents. He’s that guy you can always call to ask for advice, schedule repairs or discuss any automotive concern. Dwayne, his wife, and his 7 beautiful children are rooted in this community, and Dwayne is committed to providing folks just like you with top-quality automotive services for many years to come.
