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 North Baltimore (formerly Brentwood Automotive) location opening in 2019 AutoStream Car Care has expanded to 6 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.

They are very aware of the public opinion of mechanics, and take good measures to make sure you are taken care of. They do not bombard you with technical jargon or scare you with foggy repair recommendations. They gained a loyal customer!
Larry and Anthony were great! The customer service here was incomparable to anything I’ve experienced! Awesome place to get work done on your car!
They were helpful with a flat tire that I had on my car. They assisted me in installing the spare and I will definitely be returning in the future. Highly recommend!
I never write reviews but I have to say that Joe and the AutoStream Car Care Center staff have been consistently wonderful! I initially brought my car in for an inspection and they were thorough, timely and professional. During the inspection, they also had a number of recommended repairs and explained the need for these to be addressed due to safety without being pushy. I will definitely return to take care of this as soon as it is financially possible. Then during COVID-19, I experienced an... Read More
We've delt with so many different mechanics over the years. When our car broke down in 83, we contacted AAA. They recommend towing our vehicle to AutoStream. Both my Husband and I were concerned because we did not know the mechanics. We've always taken our vehicle to someone whom was referred by a Friend or Family Member. We went with AAA's recommendation and we are so happy we did. From the initial contact, AutoStream's Team was Amazing!! Very professional and extremely Comprehensive. Pro... Read More
Brentwood is excellent! They explained the work needed very clearly, and the brake repair done on my car was quality work. My car was ready when they said it would be. Happy and satisfied customer for many years!
I bought a brand new car 3 years ago, and once the manufacturer's service warranty ran out, I started researching local repair shops to stop hemorrhaging $300-500 every routine visit to the dealer. AutoStream/Brentwood Automotive is a great shop. I've been taking my car there for almost two years now, and I always get the best service. If you own a German automobile, this shop knows and follows the maintenance schedules for most German automakers (if not all). Best part is they always give yo... Read More
Super friendly, personable, and generous service! Truly the best all around automotive service in town.
Every now and the you wish you could give 7 to 10 stars. This is the case with Autostream Columbia and Chris customer service Above and beyond to get my Murano back on the road. A detailed inspection, constant contact and friendly attitude..but most of all honest. A rare word in the automotive industry. I recommend AS highly..and no he didn't pay me for this review. They earned it.
