Historic Picture of Accurate Automotive

On October 29, 1969, Accurate Automotive Attention first opened its doors. It started in a small metal building on the corner of 15th Street and 3rd Avenue, rented by the founder Dennis McCloud, who was accompanied by one mechanic’s helper.

In 1970, Dennis purchased the building and the three lots behind it. Then, in 1971, Dennis added a 6,000 square-foot addition and stuccoed the metal building. With his dedication to quality and service, his business grew.

As the business grew with the community, Dennis added another 5,300 square-feet to the building in 1974, expanding it to the limits of his property. Using the same principles of quality and service, Accurate Automotive Attention continued to grow and prosper.

Accurate Automotive Attention expanded to a small facility in the Foothills area, in 1984, on the Frontage Road, to service the growing population in that locale. By 1992, these facilities had reached their capacities as the communities and our customer bases continued to grow.

In early 1995, Accurate Automotive Attention purchased the building and three adjacent lots north of the 3rd Avenue location, giving us over 20,000 square-feet of under-roof workspace. Then in late 1995, we purchased another 12,800 square-feet of building on the east side of 3rd Avenue. We moved our diagnostic team to that building to create a separate tune-up and computer-diagnostic facility bringing the total under-roof square footage to almost 33,000 square-feet.

Finally, in July 1998, Accurate Automotive Attention branched out again into the Foothills community by purchasing a modern, quick-service facility, which also contained a car and RV wash facility. The RV wash facility is the only one of its kind in Arizona. This facility is named Express Auto/RV Care Center, adding another group of dedicated employees and providing another valuable service to Yuma’s residents.

At this time, Accurate Automotive Attention employs 46 dedicated people, some having been with us for over 15 years, providing Yuma with the finest staff in the area.  Combine that with state of the art auto repair facilities, in addition to state of the art equipment, and you have the best auto repair business in Yuma, AZ.  Come check it out for yourself!
