We are Tony and Leah and have been in the automotive industry for over two decades. While Tony was in tech school for automotive repair, Leah began as a GS technician at Penske Auto Repair and learned hands-on from her shop foreman, Barb (a little bitty 4'10" woman). 


After graduating from tech school, Tony began his career at a Toyota dealership in Florida where he worked to become ASE Certified. From there, he moved into aftermarket repairs working at various national chains. 

When we moved to Indian Land, Tony continued to work as an ASE Certified technician for a few years before moving into management and Leah worked in vocational ministry. It was during this time that we understood the need for the repair to come second to the relationship.

With the desire to make it about the customer, it was impressed upon our hearts to take a leap of faith and open the doors of Claflin Auto.

We are all created for community and through automotive repair, we've been able to build amazing relationships with our clients, provide a healthy culture for our team, give back to the community and so much more!


We know that having options when it comes to auto repair is important. We offer many different brands at different price points to get you back on the road. The choice is always yours!
