About Summit City Car Care

Over 20 Years of Experience & 50 Five Star Reviews

Our Beginnings

The garage has been on Crescent Ave since 1919. It once housed dentist’s office, doctors offices, and even a drug store. After multiple owners Patricia Bonecutter bought the space in 2002 and Summit City Car Care was born. 

As a woman who had faced a share of unfair treatment from car repair shops, Patricia wanted Summit City Car Care to be a space women felt safe. Our shop follows the golden rule, “Do unto other as you would want to be treated.” Our team wants every person who comes in to be treated with honesty and respect. After years of running the business, Patricia hopes to retire soon and pass the shop along to the current employees, who are all passionate about the business and will carry on the legacy and mission.

They were so nice and helpful in explaining what was wrong with my vehicle when I brought it in. I am a student at PFW and even get a discount here. Will definitely be bringing my car here for oil changes and whatever fixes I need in the future while I am in fort wayne!

Dave and his crew are amazing! He’s worked on my car twice and has done an amazing job! The second time, my car coincidentally broke down in front of his shop on the way to the dealership to get a recall repair. Dave not only fit me in right away but he had my car fixed by the next day. He also sourced a used part to cut my repair cost in half to fit my budget. Not only is this an excellent shop but it is run by excellent people!

The guy behind the desk is very down to earth. He, also, worked to get my car in, to help get my window fixed, while I was at work. I dropped it off and they just fit it in where they could. Both seem kind and helpful. It has a friendly small town feel in a big town. It's nice

Dave and his crew operate this locally owned garage the way it used to be, before big box corporate garages flooded the country. Great service and honest prices. I won't take my car anywhere else.

Thanks for taking good care of my son's sudden need for assistance in today's icy cold conditions. Your service technician didn't have to cross the street to the credit union to jump his car, but he did. Didn't have to get his vehicle into the shop immediately to check for issues, but you did. Didn't have to install a battery purchased elsewhere, but you did. You took good care of a young man with little car-service experience – friendly, ethical, respectful, promptly attentive, at a reasonable price; and all with helpful interaction to make it a good learning experience for him. Thank you!

Summit City Car Care is honest, fairly priced, and knowledgeable with every vehicle I have brought in. They take the time to explain repairs, future service needs, and know I can trust them. I found Summit City Car Care after getting fed up with dealer service departments and have been a loyal customer since 2007. Always very impressed with the service, knowledge, and price!

I have never had a bad time here. The staff is very inviting and they get it done right the first time! It is a very nice shop. I have taken my vehicle here for about 7 years and as long ad they are open I will continue taking my car here.
