About Austin’s Auto Repair, Inc.

Austin’s Auto Repair Center, Inc. was founded in 1979 by husband and wife team, Lynn and Darla Austin. Lynn developed a passion for repairing vehicles at an early age, and his dream was to one day open his own shop. This dream became a reality when Darla saw an ad for a three-bay gas station for lease. Within weeks, Hilltop Citgo was born. Our business stayed at that location until 1987 when we purchased our current site on Commerce Drive in North Mankato. Since then, Austin’s Auto Repair Center has become a prominent and trusted business to customers from throughout the area.
