About Us

We Offer Complete Auto Repair Services And Stand Behind Our Work With A 3 Year / 36k Warranty!

Welcome to AFA Auto Repair, your trusted automotive service provider in Amesbury, MA! We have a rich history and a team of dedicated professionals committed to helping you with all your automotive needs. Here’s a brief overview of our journey so far.

AFA Auto Repair was established initially as Amesbury Foreign Auto in 1991 by Dennis Gagnon, who served as the Owner/Technician. Back then, our shop was situated across from Andyman’s Bakery on Hillside Ave. We primarily focused on servicing foreign vehicles.

In 1999, we relocated to our current location, and Ben joined the team later that year. Our customer base continued to grow as we adhered to our core philosophies of “Fix it Right the First Time” and “Over-Communicate.”

In 2016, Ben took ownership of the business, maintaining the same name and dedication to assisting customers with their automotive needs. Soon after, Ben’s wife, Ari, joined the company, and we welcomed Andrew as a young apprentice Technician.

Over the last five years, we’ve expanded our team to include Technician Owen and Service Advisor Ethan. In 2020, we decided to broaden our market to cater to all makes and models, recognizing that most families in the area own a mix of foreign and domestic vehicles. As a result, we rebranded to “AFA Auto Repair” to better reflect our comprehensive range of services.

Although the decision to rebrand was challenging, we believe this change will make it easier for new customers to recognize and appreciate our services. Rest assured, AFA Auto Repair will continue to operate with the same experienced crew members and our steadfast “Fix it Right the First Time” mentality.

We are immensely grateful for the support we have received over the years. We promise to keep delivering our best efforts at AFA Auto Repair. Thank you for choosing us as your trusted automotive service provider!
