Honest and Affordable

As a kid in New York, Luis Vargas was always into cars. The owner of Affordable Auto in Bonita Springs worked his way up the ladder in the automotive service industry before moving to Southwest Florida. Finding success with Tuffy Tire and Auto Center, he was named Manger of the Year—five times.

When Vargas decided to go out on his own about 12 years ago, he says “It was hard in the beginning, but once I got my name out there and did the right thing for a lot of customers, being honest, they started telling their friends.”

Honesty and affordability are two important business philosophies that Vargas says contributes to his success. “We can do more for people than a franchise,” he explains, adding, “We’re going to do the right thing, just what is needed.”

People drive from Marco Island, Fort Myers Beach and all over Southwest Florida to get their cars serviced and repaired by Vargas and his reliable team of seven, most of who have been with him from the beginning.

He says, “The guys are great! Without the team I’m nobody, without them I wouldn’t be here.”

Having reliable and competent repair team has also allowed him the time to work on expanding Affordable Auto. Look for locations soon, in both Fort Myers and Cape Coral.
