Our Story: AutoStream Car Care Center

A history of award-winning service


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, a fifth opening in October 2016, and the most recent Hampden of Baltimore (formerly Brentwood Automotive) location opening in 2019 AutoStream Car Care has expanded to 6 locations!

Convenient, customer-first 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.

When you bring your car in for auto repair service, our convenient shopping center locations allow you to easily fill your appetite and your time, as we are just a quick walk away from a variety restaurants and shops. We also provide a free local shuttle service and have a loaner car program available for longer repairs, so you never have to skip a beat while your vehicle is in our shop!

We invite you to call, stop by, or schedule service online today at one of our six convenient locations: Columbia, MD, Dorsey Hall location in Ellicott City, Baltimore, MD, Clarksburg, MD, Hampden of Baltimore, MD and our location in Woodstock, MD.
