Halli (Haraldur G. Borgfjord) - owner
Halli was born and raised in Iceland. In the fall of 1970 after graduating from high school, Halli began a four year program at the Technical Institute of Iceland and graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Automotive Engineering. After graduation, Halli started working for the Mazda distributor in Iceland as the Lead Technician and Technical Specialist. During his time there, he attended many specialized Mazda training courses in Iceland, Denmark, and Belgium.
In the spring of 1979 Halli moved to the United States and began working for the local Mazda dealer in Kalamazoo (Dick Loher’s Mazda). Upon completion of all Mazda training courses and requirements, Halli was nominated for the Mazda Guild Award competition. The competition included over 600 Mazda Master Technician nominees from a five state region (MI, IL, IN, OH, WI). The top five to eight Mazda Master Technicians were recognized each year. Halli won this award each of the eight times he was nominated prior to starting his own business and becoming ineligible.
All of this led up to Halli starting his own automotive repair facility in 1988, Halli’s AutoCare Inc. What started as a small two-bay operation soon grew and it wasn't until much longer when after tireless efforts the business had expanded in 1994 when Halli opened his current location. Originally, opening as a four-bay repair facility Halli’s AutoCare now sits at 4500 square feet with six repairs bays. But what all of these numbers really means is that Halli has spent nearly thirty years building an honest business with service customers can really on. We feel our greatest achievement has been our loyal customers who have stayed with us over the years and that this is a true testament to our integrity, professionalism, and customer service. We have the experience, knowledge, and resources to take care of all of your automotive service and repair needs.
