Meet The Team

Our personal values equal our business values

Ever since opening in 1976, Buck’s Automotive Service has always had the goal of embodying integrity and quality to give our customers an automotive service that they can trust.

Buck’s Automotive team has been together for decades, literally. Most of our technicians have been with us for more than 20 years and some with us for more than 30. This is a testament to our team’s core desire of caring for our customers by keeping their vehicles maintained and safe. 

We require our mechanics to be certified by the Automotive Service Excellence (ASE). We also encourage constant schooling/training so that they are providing the best service possible and keeping up with the latest technologies.

New owners, same high standards

Buck (aka Frank Buckner), with the support of his wife Patti, started Buck’s Automotive Service back in 1976, but after 40+ years of fixing cars, he decided to finally retire. However, they knew how important Buck’s is to Tucson locals so they sold the business to their good friends Mike & Rene Nicholson. Buck & Patti knew that Buck’s Automotive was in good hands with Mike & Rene.
In 1996, Mike helped launch and grow one of Tucson’s largest local automotive repair chains to date. After the sale of its then 15 locations, Mike wanted to continue to help the Tucson community with genuine, locally-focused service. With plenty of automotive experience under his belt, the timing couldn’t have been more perfect.

Buck’s Automotive remains to this day, a local, family-owned business. With the same high standards that Buck & Patti utilized to create the business, Mike & Rene maintain one of Tucson’s most reputable & trusted automotive repair shops.
