About Greg's Automotive in La Mesa and El Cajon

The original Greg's Automotive was founded back in June of 1979 by Greg Kelly. Greg was first introduced to the automotive industry in college where he worked for his dad managing his towing and repair shop operations. Years later, after getting married to his high school sweetheart, Sheri, and welcoming their first child, Greg worked at an independent auto repair shop where he was able to further his skill as a mechanic. When Greg and his wife were expecting their second child, Greg decided to take a job at a dealership to earn a higher wage. When working at this dealership, Greg had greater insight into the state of the automotive industry and how it was lacking the knowledge and customer service that his community needed.

It was at this time that Greg decided to open up his own business, beginning in the building of an old gas station. His intentions in his auto repair business have always stayed the same, and were based on one premise: with integrity and honesty, you’ll have a successful business because customers will always come back to you when they need car care. Greg now boasts over 52 years of experience in the automotive industry, and his second location, Greg’s Automotive Helix, was opened in February of 2007.
