2 Convenient Locations in Santa Cruz & Freedom

Auto Repair in Aptos, CA

Aptos, CA

The small town of Aptos, CA, covers more than six square miles of land in Santa Cruz County, home to a population approaching 6,500 residents. Aptos is located east of Santa Cruz near the San Andreas fault, home to two California state parks.

“Aptos” is a Native American term meaning “the people,” and the town is famous for its rich history, including industrial development once California became a state. Such history is always on display at the Aptos History Museum, one of the town’s main attractions. Seacliff State Beach stands out as a unique area frequented by locals, a largely non-tourist beach and a popular spot to gaze at wildlife. A period of rapid development began in Aptos in the early 1960s, creating many of today’s homes and retail centers.

Since 1994, Specialized Auto has been proud to serve Aptos drivers with excellent automotive repairs and maintenance at two locations: Santa Cruz and Watsonville. Our professional, experienced technicians handle a wide range of vehicle makes with skill and accuracy, delivering long-lasting results. Our Santa Cruz shop is located on Chanticleer Avenue, and our Watsonville shop on Freedom Avenue. At both locations we say with confidence: We’re better than the dealer every time!
