Our Team | Zia Automotive

The story of Zia Automotive began in 2003, and we haven’t looked back since. Albuquerque drivers continue to choose the auto mechanics and rest of the team at Zia Automotive for both auto sales and auto repair. It may sound surprising to hear that we specialize in both auto repair and auto sales, but we are no stranger to hard work and initiative.  

The owners of Zia Automotive, James and Patty Santistevan, grew up learning the values of hard work and integrity by watching their parents and grandparents in the automotive industry. They followed in their parental figures’ footsteps by quickly developing a strong work-ethic. Patty, after school, would race to her father’s auto shop, eager to get to work, and James, at age 13, would accompany his dad at the dealership, working his way up from mopping floors to the service and parts department. James would even deliver parts to Patty’s father’s shop. It seems as if their paths were always intertwined, both together and in the automotive industry. 

With a commitment, not only for hard work, but for looking out for the best interest of their clients, James and Patty operate an auto repair shop that stands out in the community. Because we want you to drive in a safe and secure vehicle, whether through the process of auto sales or auto repair, we only do what is best for you and your family. The rest of the team at Zia Automotive follows suit, demonstrating the same level of hard work and passion as both James and Patty. 

With Zia Automotive, you always come first. Whether you arrive at our auto repair shop for auto sales or auto repair, we will be with you each step of the way, holding your best interest close to our heart. While our auto mechanics are diligently working, you can utilize our shuttle service or loaner cars. We are here to make things easy for you. We are conveniently located at 5312 Phoenix Ave NE, Albuquerque, NM 87110 and are open MON - SAT: 7:30 AM - 5:30 PM. Make your appointment for Volvo service today!
