Meet The Owners

Mike Smith

Owner / Master ASE Certified Technician


Mike has been in the automotive industry for over 50 years.  At the age of 13, Mike started working at the family gas station located on one of the busiest corners in Costa Mesa, California.    Mike ventured off from the family business to own and operate a gas station in Fallbrook, California.  It was this business venture that led him to the Temecula Valley in 1978. Seeing the need for a reliable and honest auto repair shop he shortly opened Mike’s Truck and Auto and for the next 27 years served the community of Temecula Valley.  


Much has changed over the years from Temecula’s tractor races down Old Town Front Street to the rising of the Promenade Mall and now to the booming community of our beloved French Valley / Winchester area.   Throughout these changing times, though, there are some things that haven’t changed for Mike and that is his strong desire to provide a safe, reliable and honest auto service and repair center for his community. Seeing this need in our French Valley community birthed MIKAR INC. in the summer of 2005.
