Welcome to Cliff’s Auto Repair, a trusted auto repair shop serving the Houston, TX community since December 6, 2006. We pride ourselves on providing exceptional service with a focus on honesty, integrity, and quality workmanship that we stand behind.
Cliff, the founder and current owner, has been a dedicated auto mechanic since the 1980s. With his wealth of experience and expertise, he is an ASE certified master technician (L1). Over the years, Cliff has built a reputation for his commitment to delivering reliable automotive solutions and ensuring customer satisfaction.
As the torch is passed on to the next generation, Jeff A. Smith, Cliff’s son and a retired Air Force veteran, will be taking over the reins of the business in the coming months. With 20 years of experience as an aircraft mechanic, Jeff brings a unique skill set and a strong dedication to continuing the legacy of extraordinary service that Cliff has established.
Assisting Jeff in managing the shop is his wife, Candis Smith, who initially joins as a service writer and will eventually learn to run the Bellville shop. In approximately 90-120 days, our Bellville location will open its doors, offering the same high-quality service and commitment to customer satisfaction.
Joining the team are experienced professionals who share our passion for automotive excellence. Cliff’s younger brother, Jeff W. Smith, is a General Service technician and a former teacher, bringing his knowledge and attention to detail to every job. Brian Serna is a skilled General Service technician, while Lionel Acuna has been a valuable member of our team for over 10 years. Drew Platt, an ASE certified master technician (L1) with a specialization in electrical systems, boasts over 30 years of experience in the field. Additionally, Cole Clarabut, with over a decade of experience, rounds out our team of dedicated technicians.
At Cliff’s Auto Repair, we understand the value of work-life balance. While our days are filled with providing top-notch service, we also cherish our personal time. Fishing and golfing are favorite pastimes for Cliff, Teri, Jeff, and many others on our team. Cole, on the other hand, enjoys engaging in super competitive online racing games during his spare moments.
Cliff, born and raised in Houston, and Teri born and raised in the Beaumont-Orange triangle area, have always been connected to the community. They moved to Houston when their sons, Jeremiah and Jeffrey, were young in the late 1980s. In 1994, they purchased a house near Katy, where they resided until 2019. Seeking new horizons, they acquired a property in Bellville, which includes a small shop, and plan to open a branch there soon. Jeremiah, after serving in the Navy for five years, now works in offshore oil.
At Cliff’s Auto Repair, we look forward to serving you and your vehicle with the utmost care, professionalism, and expertise. Whether it’s routine maintenance or complex repairs, trust us to keep you safely on the road.
