Auto Repair in Capitola, CA

Capitola, CA

The city of Capitola, CA, covers about 1.6 square miles of land in Santa Cruz County, home to a population of roughly 10,000 residents. Capitola is situated on the northeast shore of Monterey Bay, next to the city of Santa Cruz.

The area that became Capitola grew out of what was once called Soquel Landing, and today’s city was incorporated in 1949. Capitola has become a popular spot for tourists, offering a variety of clothing, food and gift shops, all adjacent to a fishing wharf and a large, sandy beach. The Capitola Mall is located here, the only enclosed shopping center in all of Santa Cruz County. Capitola holds the distinction as the oldest beach resort on the Pacific Coast.

Since 1994, Specialized Auto has been proud to serve Capitola 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!
