About SMI Automotive Service

In 1969, two brothers and their close friend decided to leave their roots in eastern Kentucky and move to Louisville to build a better life and a brighter future. This dream began with pairing a small business loan and their expertise on Volkswagen repair. Their success in automotive repair in Louisville grew and quickly established a reputation for the city’s top choice for high-quality repair. Today, more than 45 years later, the SMI Automotive Service brand has grown to two locations including an auto repair shop in SMI Automotive Service, and a marine repair center. We’re proud of expertise in auto repair and marine repair and sales. We continue to be a family-owned and operated company with the second generation in full control of business operations.

German-made vehicles are more popular than ever with drivers of all ages and preferences. Evolving over the years, German vehicles often feature the latest technology and most advanced comforts and as a result owners often head to the dealerships for any and all service needs. However dealerships often come with numerous hassles and stigmas from over the years such as:

  • Overcrowded service centers
  • Overpriced services big and small
  • Extended wait times with your car unavailable
  • Inexperienced mechanics overlooking small problems
