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

WhatOur happy clients sayabout us?

A review from Lindsey K.
“Service was impeccable! The office staff was delightful! I appreciated the head mechanic taking the time to explain what was wrong with my car and how it was fixed. The prices were reasonable and they didn't try to sell me something that wasn't the actual issue with my car. They are honest and reliable. The issue was fixed and Lighthouse Automotive is the only place I will take my car to be serviced!”

A review from Lisa H.
My little Toyota needed a gasket & some joints and Dave fixed her right up. He even put my spare where it belonged instead of it taking up the space in my bed Lighthouse is the only repair shop for me. It is only shop in dare county where you always have both friendly clerks AND always receive professional work at fair prices. (Tks y'all I'll be back for brakes oneday....)

The service is the best. It was on time as requested, and the staff are knowledgeable people that care about your concerns.
A review from Sue S.
A part we needed for truck was no longer made. The mechanic thought he remembered seeing one at their junk yard, gave to us free. Only charged small fee for labor. Friendly staff.
