Our Staff


Derek & Tamara Phillips

Derek and Tamara are true Friendswoodians! They grew up in Friendswood, are products of Friendswood schools and are high school sweethearts. Derek is a graduate of Sam Houston State University. Tamara is a graduate of Texas A&M University. Married while still in college, they served seven years on staff with Young Life Ministries, most recently in Cypress, Texas. In 2009, the Phillips welcomed their first born, Jack Carter, into the world and a desire grew to return to their hometown roots to raise their family. In 2012, they returned to Friendswood and daughter Julia Kate was born the next year. Derek subsequently took a position at Christian Brothers Automotive corporate office as a Franchise Trainer. While training new franchise owners on running an ethical automotive business the dream of becoming a business owner began to materialize. In 2014, the opportunity to purchase a Christian Brothers Automotive became a reality and the Phillips family is thrilled to serve their hometown community as new owners of the Friendswood shop.

Summation of Services We Perform

Customer Service is Our Passion

We pledge to be a courteous, friendly, and service oriented shop treating customers as family. We understand our customers have many shopping alternatives, so providing service above customers’ expectations will make customers want to choose us over the other choices they may have. We understand that you never get a second chance to make a great first impression! We will strive to make every customer experience outstanding!

Inspections, Testing and Diagnostics are Our Specialties

We have the latest dealer-level diagnostic tools and equipment, OEM software updated daily, and continuous manufacturer-specific training. Some repair shops or parts stores just “read the code” and then hope that it will fix the problem. Our experience has shown us that over half of the time that the code obtained from the computer is only a symptom, and that the real problem lies somewhere else. Don’t guess, test!

Emissions Repairs are Hassle-Free

We repair vehicles of all years (both “1995 and older” and “1996 and newer”). We can complete the drive cycle and re-inspection for you before we say “it’s done!”

Our Brake Service Will Have You Stopping Smoothly and Quietly

We always begin with a free brake inspection and give you actual measurements on wear, not just an arbitrary percentage worn. We machine your rotors or drums, if they are above manufacturers limits, lubricate all necessary hardware, and only use the best quality of brake pad.

Manufacturer Recommended Maintenance to Keep Your Vehicle Warranty in Force

We have the same equipment, fluids, chemicals and trained technicians as most of the dealerships use. We can perform the 30,000, 60,000, and 90,000 mile services required under your warranty. However, we can also perform most extended warranty repairs, and you pay only your deductible. These services are not only important during your warranty, but also extend the life of your vehicle after the warranty has expired. After all, if they weren’t important they wouldn’t be a requirement of the warranty.

Don’t Overheat

We service and repair all components in your engine’s cooling system. From radiator flushes to radiator replacement, water pumps, thermostats and heater cores, we service it all. If your car begins to run hot, pull over right away and give us a call. Driving a car for even a few miles while overheated can cause thousands of dollars in damage.

Keeping You Cool with Air Conditioning Service and Repair

When your car will not keep you cool and you do not know exactly why when you first arrive. That is why we begin by recharging your A/C and then performing a leak test to see where the freon is being lost. We have extensive experience in replacing compressors, evaporator cores, condensers, orifice tubes, expansion valves, hoses and lines.

Engine Repairs and Maintenance by a Experienced Technicians

Our technicians have over 30 years personal experience and are trained, tested and certified technicians to give you the reassurance that your diagnosis and repair were done right.

Transmission Services

We have the computers and equipment to diagnose your transmission problem. We repair transmissions for servo, electronic and electrical component faults. We also service clutches, flywheels, hydraulic clutch linkage, and, if need be, we can perform transmission rebuilds.

Glorifying God by providing excellent and ethical automotive repair to our customers!
