Free Courtesy Shuttle

Free Courtesy Shuttle

Need a ride home or to the office after dropping off your vehicle? No problem! Water Star Motors is pleased to provide our customers with a free courtesy shuttle. We'll even pick you up when your car is ready. Ask us about it when you make an appointment.


Two Year Warranty

Two Year Warranty

We are proud to be home to the two year, 24,000 mile warranty on new part and labor. If your car is under warranty with the dealership or an aftermarket warranty program, we especially encourage you to come in: often, we can save you money by identifying expensive problems that may not be otherwise noticeable before your warranty expires.

Santa Cruz Green Business

At Water Star Motors we practice sustainability. We believe in 'reduce, reuse, and recycle' as a way of life. We promote the use of bio-diesel, hybrids and ethanol in our community and promote the good health and safety of the vehicles we service. We were the first auto repair shop to become Certified Green through the Green Business Program.
