Our Grandfather, James Earl Wiygul started this family tradition over 60 years ago as a Ford Motor Company Dealer in Fulton, Mississippi. His operating creed was simple, "Never Lie, Cheat or Steal, Ever."

Our slogan, "Try Us, You Will Absolutely Love Us," actually came from a customer. She had traded with us for about 15 years and was waxing on one day about how much trouble she had when she first arrived in our community finding a reliable, honest automotive repair facility. She then said since "discovering us" she had told everyone she knew, "Try Wiyguls, You Will Absolutely Love Them". That was the beginning of the slogan but not the beginning of our commitment to complete customer satisfaction.
The first Virginia auto repair shop was started in 1976 on South Pickett Street in Alexandria by Oscar Wiygul, Sr. and Sue Wiygul. This location currently employs twelve auto technicians and four service writers. Due to the success of the South Picket Street location, in 1986 another location in Alexandria was purchased on Lane Drive. This location employs eight auto technicians, and four service writers.
In 2006 we purchased two more auto repair shops located in Reston and Herndon, Virginia. The Reston auto repair shop employs twelve auto technicians and four service writers. Our Herndon auto repair shop employs twelve auto technicians and four service writers.
In 2014 we purchased five more auto repair shops in Maryland, located in Clinton, Fort Washington, La Plata, North Waldorf and South Waldorf. We are proud to have these new locations continue the Wiygul tradition of courteous customer service, quality auto service & repair, and expert tire service.
In June 2017, we were able to expand our footprint to another portion of Northern Virginia through acquisition of Burke Centre Automotive. This became our 8th location!
After 40 years of operation, Wiygul Automotive Clinic now proudly operates 8 auto service & repair shops in the Washington DC metro region. Even as we have evolved into a progressive and modern business, we have still stayed true to our old fashion principles. Our experienced employees and management continue to provide a reliable and trustworthy service at a fair price.
