Scott Marshall, Owner, ASE Master Technician, License Smog Inspector and Repair, Shop Foreman

  • Scott has been working on engines since he was 10 years old, working alongside his father and grandfather. At age 21 Scott enlisted in the United States Coast Guard to continue his education on engines while serving his country. Scott and Caren were married in 1982, and their first daughter Rebecca was born in New York while Scott was still in service. The family moved to Moreno Valley in 1986, and daughter Samantha was born a year later. Scott wanted to ensure he could provide for his family, so with Caren's encouragement, Scotty's Auto Repair was opened in 1991. Scott has been an ASE Master Certified Technician since 1996. He has been a Smog and Smog Repair Certified Technician since 1988. Scott puts pride in continuing his Automotive education every year. He takes great pride in serving his community since 1991.

Caren Marshall, Owner

  • Caren Marshall always dreamed of owning her own business. She worked selling Tupperware for many years and gained valuable experience in the sales and business world. When the opportunity came up for her and her husband Scott to open up their own business, they jumped at the opportunity. Their daughters Rebecca and Samantha were 5 and 3 when Scotty's Auto Repair opened it's doors in 1991, and have grown up in the shop. In 2013 Samantha decided to join her parents in this endeavor. Knowing that we come to work every day to help people, is the most rewarding job ever!

Samantha Tracey, Shop Manager, Licensed Smog Inspector

  • Samantha, aka Sam, is Scott and Caren's youngest daughter. Sam was 3 years old when Scotty's Auto Repair was opened. While her parents ran the shop, she played in the corner of the office. As a young adult, Sam helped in the shop. In 2006, Sam met Alex and they got married in 2009. Sam started working full time in 2013 as the Service Advisor for the shop. In 2017 Sam has moved into the Shop Manager position. Her goal is to continue Scotty's Auto Repair's reputation in great customer service and excellent auto repair.

Sandee, Service Advisor

  • Sandee joined the Scotty's Auto Repair team in 2019. She has worked in the Automotive industry since 1984, starting as a parts driver and advanced through parts counter personnel, parts warehouse, and has gone as far as owning her own successful Automotive Repair Shop. Sandee has since sold her business and is now running Scotty's Auto Repair as the main Service Advisor. Sandee, who is an Air Force brat, and her husband Ken, who is an IT Specialist, have two boys. Her oldest son Tyler is married to Brooke. Tyler is proudly serving in the US Coast Guard. Her youngest son Sean loves off-roading and video games. When she is not spending time with her family, you can find Sandee giving lots of attention to her cats, dogs, and birds, reading a book, crafting with friends, baking and trying new recipes. Sandee finds it very rewarding to give her customers excellent customer service while providing exceptional education on how to maintain and repair their vehicles. She appreciates that her customers trust her, her honesty and professionalism.

Brian, Technician

  • Brian joined the Scotty's Auto Repair team in 2022. Brian rebuilt his first engine around the age of 10 years old! So you can see why working on vehicles is his passion! He got his professional Automotive career started in 2015. Although he can do all different kinds of repairs and diagnostics, what he truly loves is electrical diagnostics. Brian married his wife Andrea in 2006 and they have two girls together. When Brian isn't professionally working on vehicles, you can find him spending time with his family. He also enjoys football, motorcycle racing, boxing and believe it or not, fixing cars!

Scully, Customer Service Ambassador

  • Scully was born in January 2020. She was rescued by Sam and her husband Alex in February of 2021. When Scully was a pup, she suffered from distemper, so she has a neurological disorder that causes her hind legs to bounce all the time. Scully enjoys going for walks, chasing and hunting lizards, cuddling, giving kisses, playing with her ball, but most of all she loves meeting new human friends. She is so loving and has the perfect demeanor, she comes to the shop almost daily.

What Our Customers Are Saying


The Best Auto Repair Shop in Riverside and Moreno Valley for over 20 years. The are Knowledgeable about all our cars. I highly recommend them for Smog's and all repairs. Awesome Shop, give them a call!


My family never trusted anybody but my father to work on all of our vehicles, when he passed away three years ago we were all desperate to find someone that we could trust to work on our vehicles. When we found Scotty's and saw the way that he and his wife ran the business we knew the entire family would stick with Scotty's because of their sincere honesty, their affordability and their family oriented way of running the business. I highly recommend Scotty's!


Scotty's Auto Repair is amazing! I wouldn't take my care anywhere else. The owners and staff are all incredible people!


Scott and his team are among the best mechanics in the area...and even more important, they have integrity! They stand behind their work and will do whatever is necessary to make it right! I have absolute confidence in the work they do!


I brought my 2007 4Runner in for a smog check. As always I was provided excellent service. Scott had me out in less than 45 minutes and that included a courtesy check of the entire vehicle. Always a great experience at Scotty's.


Scotty's has time and again demonstrated incomparable service. Our latest experience involved a last minute smog test for a private vehicle sale. With one phone call, Caren was able to brief me on all of the requirements and immediately get me in to have the car smog tested. Scotty's literally saved the day. Thank you for being such a great business to deal with. It's truly a pleasure!
