welcome to Lighthouse Automotive Inc.

For exceptional service, trust, and fairness in auto repair, come and see the automotive mechanics at Lighthouse Automotive on NC Highway 345! Our shop is ready to handle your auto repair needs and get you back on the road soon. We’ve served Manteo & the Outer Banks region since 2018, and we’re growing by the day.

The Outer Banks contains many different garages for your auto repair needs. We’re right in the middle: we’re independent of a dealership or a chain but supplied through NAPA, making us small enough to be personable and big enough to protect you on your travels. We’re a proud shop on the rise, mainly growing because of the demand, and promoting ourselves by our reputation alone. Throughout Manteo & the Outer Banks, Lighthouse Automotive’s auto mechanics are known for their honesty, fairness, and thoroughness in their work, as well as for their personal touch. We look after our customers like a small shop and process their auto repairs with the might of a bigger one. In the words of our owner, David Light, “We care about each and every customer and want to make sure they’re happy and safe.”

We strive hard to take care of our clients and give them the best possible service. We also strive to be fair and honest with our customers, to ensure they feel we are worthy of the trust they show our auto repair shop. When you bring your car to Lighthouse Automotive, we make a Digital Vehicle Inspection and share with you everything we find, with a suggested timeline for future repairs. We want you to know what’s coming, but we don’t pressure you into repairs before they’re essential, and that’s done a lot to build our reputation as an honest shop. For Lighthouse Automotive, our driving factor is not the money we can make; it’s about the relationships we form along the way and the community we build. As a shop, we have all the things you need to guarantee good service: mechanics, a Master-level technician in David, and staff happy to serve you. To ensure that you’re protected on the road, we carry a NAPA Auto Care Gold Warranty (3-year/36,000-miles)-- in fact, we were nominated for NAPA Auto Shop of the Year in 2021.

“We believe that you don’t really have a customer until you have a return customer. The first time, they might stumble upon you, but it’s when they come back, that’s when you have a customer.” -- David Light

A review from Radcliff H.
Honest, Fair, Reliable. Choose Lighthouse for your automotive needs.
A review from Bruce P.
They are by far the best mechanics I have ever dealt with in my 61 years. Knowledgeable, friendly and professional. I even take my dog there and they pamper her. It’s funny but I actually like to go there and wait for my service to be completed. Chris is awesome at the front desk! David is outstanding in every way.
