About High Road Automotive

Skills to Earn

High Road Automotive was born over 30 years ago, when Fred Wilson and his friend Randy, took on fixing a UW professor’s car in the university parking lot. They succeeded, were given the moniker ‘Doctor of Honda’ by the professor, and out of that, the business was born. Formally named “Dr. Honda” in the early days, the business started very small in 1984, but grew quickly. Randy opted to move on to Colorado, to pursue a career in teaching. The business was renamed High Road Automotive to reflect the growing list of makes served. In over 30 years, Fred has crafted a business built on constant learning, innovation and a desire to fix the car properly on its first visit. “

Best in the Northwest

Over the years cars have changed, evolving from traditional automobiles into sophisticated, highly computerized, electro-mechanical marvels. High Road Automotive has evolved as well; we now have one of the most thoroughly equipped shops in the Northwest. We continually purchase the most recent computerized diagnostic equipment and our High Road staff attends update trainings at every opportunity. We are proud of our staff and the excellent work they turn out.

Beginning in the last few years Fred has served as an industry instructor, teaching classes to other mechanics from all over the United States and Canada.

Global, regional, local

In addition to providing excellent service to their community members who own cars, the High Road Automotive owner is also passionate about serving his world: he has helped build a hospital in Africa; each year he builds housing and repairs vehicles on the Yakima Reservation, he supports local shelters and donates labor to those less fortunate. High Road Automotive is intentional about remaining a contributing corporate citizen and a valuable asset to its community.
