Phil from Phil Undercar Auto Repair Shop

An Auto Repair Shop, Trusted Local Business & Family Legacy All Wrapped into One


Phil's Undercar Specialist Shop is a family-owned and operated complete auto, truck, and motorhome repair facility serving the Clinton, Michigan area for over 26 years. Our technicians are certified by the state of Michigan, and our shop has five bays plus a hoist that can handle any vehicle; from your subcompact to a 35-foot RV weighing in at 30,000 pounds. We also offer detailing services and quality used cars for sale.

From the Owner, Phil Lanway

“I LOVE HELPING CUSTOMERS, AND TAKING CARE OF MY EMPLOYEES.”

I look at business like a circle. I take care of my employees and, in return, my employees take care of my customers. My customers become life-long clients who refer their friends and family to us. If the circle is broken anywhere, the business fails. Before I opened my own auto repair business, I worked for a dealership and saw firsthand how I could improve customer service and employee relationships. My goal is to ensure everyone is taken care of properly, so the circle is whole and all are happy and satisfied.
