River Road serves as a major artery to the capital region. If you commute from Maryland into DC for work or entertainment, chances are you drive by us every day! We love the confluence of neighborhoods that we serve: Bethesda, Chevy Chase, Friendship Heights, Tenleytown and Woodburn.

With both the Friendship Heights and Tenleytown-AU Metro Stations just down the road, and the plethora of shops, restaurants and parks in the area, you will have plenty to keep you busy while you wait for your auto repair.


Our River Road automotive repair shop in Bethesda, MD has the privilege of serving drivers from across the DMV metro region. See what our customers have to say about the service our mechanics provide:
