Located less than two miles of the Fremont Auto Mall and near both highways 880 & 680, this location will be extremely convenient to best serve its customer base. Car West proudly leads the industry in proper collision repairs, employing only the highest skilled technicians that undergo continuous factory and other top industry training such as I-Car and ASE.

In addition, customers will be surprised to see inside customer parking, Hertz and Enterprise rental car offices on site, comfortable waiting areas with water features and fireplaces, a customer business center with equipped with computers and high-speed Internet access, complementary Starbucks coffee bar, and impressive shop tours upon request.

This eco-friendly solar powered facility will feature water-borne paints & recycled water.

The grand opening for the body shop will be March 25, from 4–8 p.m. Fremont is the sixth addition to the Car West chain of body shops already servicing Concord, Dublin, Mountain View, Santa Clara, and Yuba City.
