Founded in 1999, AutoStream Car Care Center has been the Greater Baltimore/Washington area’s leading automotive repair and maintenance service shop. Best friends and owners Rick Levitan and Doug Grills opened the Dorsey Hall location in Ellicott City, MD with a focus on service stations, but soon grew the operation by utilizing the shop’s bays and offering top-notch auto repair to the community. In just nine months, they opened a second location in the Owen Brown Village Center in Columbia, MD and two years later in 2001, Rick and Doug launched a third shop at the Greenspring location. With the fourth shop opening in September 2015 and a fifth opening in October 2016, AutoStream Car Care has expanded to 5 locations!
After opening our first automotive repair location in Ellicott City, we at AutoStream Car Care Center were eager to grow and serve nearby communities in Columbia and the Greenspring area of Baltimore, MD. All of our locations are home to a team of highly skilled ASE Certified Technicians who provide reliable, top quality service and a customer-friendly approach. Our mechanics are expertly trained in repair and maintenance on any make and model of domestic or foreign automobiles.

Mike and his team were polite and nice. Was able to use a discount coupon I received in the mail. Got an alignment done and was cheaper than a nearby auto body shop with the discount. The only thing was one of the camber settings was left untouched despite its value not being within specification but I was told it shouldn't be a problem. Efficient and relatively quick service!
My brake light was out, and I was hoping to pop into my usual mechanic to get it replaced before heading to work. Even though I am a longtime customer I was told that the only available appointments were in the afternoon. I asked whether I could be squeezed in but was firmly told I could come in at 1:30 or 2 p.m. So I took a chance on AutoStream in Ellicott City on my way to work. Larry greeted me warmly and said they could take care of the problem right away. In the process, they detected th... Read More
I have been bringing my 2 cars here for almost 2 years now. They are extremely knowledgeable and friendly. Every visit I received a comprehensive report for my vehicle. Recently one of my cars needed Manufacturer warranty work completed. Joe scheduled the appointment with the dealership for me and assisted with a loaner car until my car was ready. I couldn't say more great things about this group.
Everyone who works here has been extremely helpful! As someone who moved here from out of state and is unfamiliar with Maryland State Inspections, they have been helpful in informing me and assisting me in getting my car to where it needs to be to meet expectations. When they say something needs to be changed, they include photos so they actually have evidence for you!
I love this place! So quick and clean and also very kind with all smiling face! Thank you for the nice service I have got today.
Just had my truck in for my oil change and tire rotation. First time visit provided thorough inspection and report. Service was done quickly and fully at reasonable price. Courteous and great experience with Joe at the service desk.
Excellent service. Did my inspection the same day and in less time than I expected. Highly recommended!
Great customer service, awesome team with great personality, team has high integrity especially the inspector who did my car inspection ... Matt and Mike took good care of my service.. I went for my state inspection.. I didn’t pass but not their fault because I move from state of AZ where the window tint % is more than MD because of different weather conditions. I will update when I return for my re-inspection.. but I am definitely switching from my Nissan dealership to them for future serv... Read More
Chris Jones is a super star! He exceeds outstanding customer service! I had a slight auto emergency and as usual, he was able to adjust the schedule to fit me in. I highly recommend this car care center location and Chris. He is honest and knowledgeable!
I love the digital inspection! So easy to read and the pictures help me to actually see what they find! All their staff is fantastic.. from Larry, Anthony, Phil, Joe and Andrew. I know my car is in great hands!
