It’s about people. SUBARU. TOYOTA. HONDA.

At Metropolitan Garage, we don't work on cars. We work for PEOPLE who happen to own cars.

Metropolitan Garage

Subscribe to the Metro Vehicle Maintenance Program Get that "while-you-wait" appointment!

MVMP members have three, pre-scheduled appointments per year for each vehicle (Subaru, Toyota or Honda). Never miss another service-interval and never think about it! Vehicles that receive regular attention from a trained eye are inexpensive to maintain. Over twenty years of repairs in the Fairbanks climate have proven that three visits per year, for inspections conducted by trained and caring professionals, is far cheaper than allowing deferred maintenance. One hundred fifty dollar subscription fee. Fifty dollars is applied to each appointment. Text reminders included.

"What a breath of fresh air! After getting the run around at another garage and nothing was fixed, I cannot say enough good things about Metropolitan Garage! They were prompt, fixed the problem (on the first trip), and were very professional. The ladies at the front desk were friendly and such a pleasure to work with. I will never take my vehicle to anyone else!"

"I really appreciated Metropolitan Garage's employees' service today. They diagnosed my 2003 Subaru's issue in a matter of minutes & provided information if the issue were to arise again. The office's interior was clean & bright. The business was a very pleasant place. I'd even enjoy working there myself! I liked the environment, the ambiance, & the folks working there."

"As an old friend of the family, I admit I'm biased. But I've also been a customer and I can vouch for the integrity of Steve and Rebecca and Metro Garage. These good folks will do their best for their customers, their employees and their community. These guys conduct themselves with the highest integrity. I give them my unreserved full endorsement and wouldn't take my car any where else."

"Best automotive garage ever! I've had cars and trucks worked on all over the US, and while on a summer trip stopped in and had some major repairs done even without a prior appointment. Excellent people and excellent work. I wish all businesses could run with as much integrity. I'll be using Metro garage every summer that I return to Fairbanks."

Family-owned for over 20 Years

Metropolitan Garage began on a hillside in Goldstream Valley as an unfinished single-bay shop, attached to an unfinished house. It really was a garage with kids and ducks and chickens in the shop! As we grew, we added employees to the shop, and as the family has grown they have become employees. We have become experts in the automotive industry in order to serve our customers professionally, with efficiency, economy, and cheer. As a result, we love what we do because we know how to make people happy!

WHY SPECIALIZE

We can fix anything, but we are really smart about the Subaru, Toyota, and Honda families of cars.

Same-day service

YOUR CAR IN AND OUT IN ONE DAY, 80% of the time. We are so well-acquainted with these models, we anticipate the needs and can make same-day repairs.

Tires are more important than gas.

At Metropolitan Garage we don’t pull punches about tires: They are the most important safety feature on your car.

WE TEST TIRES

Personally. Rigorously. On a lake behind the airport or on lonely icy roads around Fairbanks, we can be found with a tape and GPS, slamming on the brakes or throwing cars into slides. If we sell it, we have driven it. It is the only way we can feel comfortable making recommendations to our neighbors about such an important subject.

THE TIRE SHOP RE-INVENTED

Go ahead and plan your day, because Metro Garage has renovated the tire shopping experience. If you are here, we are working on your car because we install the tires we sell by appointment. This means you are out of here in under an hour!
