Get to know us

Black Butte Auto Repair is a family-owned and operated business. With years of experience in the industry, we provide top-notch auto repair and light-duty diesel services.

Meet Tarren, Founder of Black Butte Auto and ASE certified, light-duty diesel mechanic.
Tarren's independent nature has had him dreaming of starting his own business for years, and when the opportunity found him, he wanted to settle here in Tri-Cities and make it happen. He married his wife, Joni, in 2013, and over the years have been blessed with 3 boys and a daughter.

Tarren's family has been working in the auto industry since he was born. He was taught to turn wrenches before he could read and write! With many years of experience and training, Tarren has become more and more involved in the auto industry-and plans to continue to do so in the years to come.

"Hold the vision, trust the process."


Our Vision Statement

"A good business starts with honest, hard work."

We believe that it is important to show each of our customers that good, quality work still exists. When you leave your vehicle in someone else's hands, it is important that you feel assured that each step, from start to finish will be done with focus and confidence. Working hard each day on the jobs and tasks that need to be completed, mean more than just checking off the boxes. We promise, not only to our customers, but also to ourselves, to continue to build trust by being open, honest and understanding every step of the way.
