Auto Repair Lorton

If we feel the repair isn’t cost-effective, we’ll let you know, and we’re not going to recommend it. We won’t recommend any procedure you don’t need. That’s our promise.

We consider ourselves to be parts diagnosers, not replacers.

We’re looking to build long term relationships with our customers, we’re not just interested in a one-time sale. And we understand that those long term relationships are based on honesty, trust, and transparency.

We’ll give you a free diagnosis of the health of your vehicle – that’s no charge. And if it doesn’t make sense for you financially, we won’t recommend it. We’ll always give you the best possible advice, and our owner’s cell phone is on 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Parts Warranty

All our parts come with a warranty, and if the manufacturer doesn’t cover the labor necessary to replace the part, we won’t charge you for the labor.

Robert “RT” Plate | Owner, Global Automotive

I started Global Automotive as a way of giving back to a community I’ve been a part of my entire life.

I built an auto body shop in Lorton from the ground up, and retired in 2016 after selling the business. Then one day, my mother-in-law had a bad experience at an auto repair shop. They wanted to charge her at premium rates for procedures that weren’t necessary, and I guess they figured she had nowhere else to turn. So, I decided to create a place that would help people avoid being put in that situation. I established Global Automotive to be a place where people could rely on reasonable pricing, honesty, and transparency in auto repair. Also, I just love working on cars.

Meet the Global Automotive Team

After 38 years of serving Lorton and Springfield at Precision Collision, RT sold his business to venture capitalists. Then, he just couldn’t stay home! So he started Global Automotive to give back to a community that has given so much to his family.
