About Us

Lighthouse Automotive has been providing auto repair in North Carolina for 24 great years. Begun in Wanchese and moved to Manteo and the Outer Banks region, our celebrated auto mechanics have become a force to be reckoned with on the local scene! Lighthouse Automotive  is owned by David & Jeannie Light, our Chief Mechanic, and Office Manager, respectively, and our owners.

From his earliest years, David has found his calling working on automobiles. He studied vocational auto mechanics in high school and graduated from a trade school. Eventually, David and his wife Jeannie opened the first Lighthouse location in Wanchese, in a lot beside their own home. Over a decade, we steadily built up a following by offering honest service at a fair price.

In 2018, when the opportunity came to purchase a location in Manteo & the Outer Banks region to serve our clients better, we decided to make a significant change. Our move here has been quite successful, and we’ve built a great clientele over the last two decades. We want to continue to build and grow in the decade to come for the convenience and utility of our great clients. At Lighthouse Automotive, we work on both foreign and domestic cars and trucks, perform factory maintenance services, and do exhaust work. Our Master-level technician and his mechanics will work diligently to resolve your issues. To ensure 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.

If you live near Manteo & the Outer Banks region and need to find a trustworthy technician for your auto repairs, put the auto mechanics at Lighthouse Automotive to the test. Please schedule a reservation with us today! Our store is located at 539 NC Highway 345, Manteo, NC 27954. Our hours of operation are Monday through Friday, 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM.
