In 1994, Curtis Cronin bought MSI with the plan to create an automotive repair facility in Marin that would give people honest work at fair prices. Curtis has over 40 years of automotive experience and holds many degrees and certificates in the automotive field. A resident of Marin County for over 30 years, Curtis understands the needs of local car owners and works hard to maintain MSI’s reputation for excellence. Marin Sports & Imports also contributes to Marin County charities and fund raisers to help support their community.

Our factory trained, ASE certified automotive technicians can perform mechanical repairs on all Japanese, European and American cars. With the latest in factory scanners and computer programs to assist our technicians, our full service auto repair facility in San Rafael can repair almost any vehicle. We take great pride in keeping our facility clean and equal pride in our work. You can count on us to do the job correctly the first time.

We prefer to use OEM (original equipment manufacturer) parts, but when necessary we will also use top-quality after market parts. All of our work is under a 12 month or 12,000 mile warranty. Our indoor storage garage, shuttle service and early bird drop off are just a few examples as to why we are San Rafael’s one-stop repair shop for all your automotive repair needs.

We are happy to announce that we now have free Internet access available in our waiting room for your convenience.

As a California State Auto Association AAA approved auto repair garage, we offer AAA members 10% off their repairs. Occasionally we offer other discounts and coupons. Come visit us at 123 Jordon Street, San Rafael, CA. We are open Monday through Friday from 7:30 am to 5:15 pm.
