There is a familiar problem in the $215 billion auto repair marketplace today: Thousands of independently owned auto repair garages nationwide cannot support the 'cerebral' vehicles produced in the past decades and are shutting down. They are collapsing in the same way five and dime stores and hardware stores collapsed before Wal-Mart and Home Depot replaced them.
Based on this, the market needs a new auto repair facility business model to address Americans aging fleet of technology based personal vehicles. Like Home Depot, we believe the answer lies in enabling the $40 billion do-it-yourself segment of the marketplace, and becoming a 'Community Garage'.
