Michael went to UTI and worked at VW dealer ships in Oregon and Arizona before starting Autostaat in 2006. While working for VW he attended brand specific training and attained certifications at VW training centers. He has always had a passion to help others so he decided to start his own repair shop so that car repair could be affordable.
Chris went to UTI and Audi Academy. He worked for a local Audi dealer before moving to a busy independent shop in the valley. This was a perfect match for his out of the box approach to problem solving he had learned while having to repair his air cooled Beetles growing up in Hawaii, here he was able to come up with better ways to fix vehicles while saving the costumer money. In 2012 he started Arlos Autohaus, named after his son.
