LT Automotive

This Page Is About Us, But Our Auto Repair Shop Is All About YOU!

Mark Laudenslager established LT Automotive in 1997 to fix car his way—the right way, accurately and honestly. You see, Mark is not only a car person, he’s a people person. He loves working with his team and getting to know his customers, and he built this business around building relationships, so everyone can grow together. The crew at LT Automotive works hard and appreciates value, which we pass on to our customers. In this way, we believe we help keep other shops honest as well. Take a moment to get to know us. We look forward to getting to know you, too!

“Folks need an auto repair shop they can trust. People will always have cars and will always need them to be serviced and repaired. So, we like to think of our customers as friends—they need us, and we need them.” -Mark Laudenslager, Owner

Meet the Owner, Mark Laudenslager

Mark has over 30 years of experience in the auto repair industry. He got his start with exhaust work, mastering the skills required to create high-quality exhaust systems for all types of vehicles. After many years working for other auto repair shops, Mark’s inner-entrepreneur decided he should start his own business, and he founded LT Mufflers & Brakes in 1997. He changed the name to LT Automotive in 2011 to reflect the shop’s ability to perform full-service auto repair and maintenance. Mark has always held very high standards for workmanship and customer service. This insistence on excellence has contributed to his long success through times of feast, as well as famine.

Over the years, Mark has joined with other Reno NAPA AutoCare Centers and donated cars to needy families. He also gives back to the community by supporting the VFW, local high schools, Nevada Bighorns Unlimited, and the local fire and police departments’ food and injured members funds. In addition, he’s been a member of the local BNI chapter. Mark and his wife, Cindy, have two boys and enjoy hunting, fishing, gardening, cooking, and trying new restaurants in Reno.
