About Us

Automotion is a family owned and operated full service automotive repair facility that has been serving the Topeka area since 1997.  Come inside and you will find owners D.J. and Jenny Manis working alongside 8 other top notch employees that help to maintain the highest level of service quality.

At Automotion we enjoy all types of vehicles and repairs big or small.  We service foreign and domestic, new, classic or hot rods.  You never know what you’ll see in our service bay on any given day.

Unlike our larger competitors a staff of only 10 allows us to be efficient in not only cost of repairs but also maintain the highest level of quality. 

Another unconventional mainstay you will find at Automotion is the technician working on your vehicle will also be the person that you talk to to determine the correct repairs for your vehicle.  This eliminates confusion and allows you to ask pointed questions and receive accurate, straight forward answers.

Happy Customers

"I go here every time. They never try to upsell, they have fixed problems that have stymied others. Good shop."

glen mcbeth

"They're one of the few places in town that will do an alignment on a late model Audi, so they already get big points for that. All the other alignment shops in town wouldn't touch my car. Staff was courteous and able to get me in for an alignment quickly. They did a great on the complicated job of aligning an Audi, so I certainly trust them."

Matt Ludwick

"D J and his staff always do a great service. We have been loyal customers for years now."

Diana Prout

"Figured out what was wrong with my car and fixed it in record time. Dropped it off, and got it back in a few hours."

Michael Brown

"Took my 1974 Mercedes 450 SL to them to work out some kinks! They were extremely fair and gave me an estimate of what all needed repaired...DJ broke down the estimate into three easy phases, starting with the safety repairs first. This was VERY helpful and made the repairs much more affordable...They have me as a customer for life. Best service I have ever had at any shop! Thanks DJ and staff for a fantastic experience!"

Ronald Reust

"We went to Automotion because we had a problem with our engine of a GMC Truck during our Roadtrip through the US. DJ and the rest of the team were really friendly and helpful. They are really professional and fixed our problem fast. Super honest guys and highly recommendable. Would definitely be my number one garage if I live in Topeka."

Jannis Adam

"This is the best shop in town! My family has taken our vehicles there for years and will continue taking them there! FAST and AFFORDABLE repairs! Anytime I've had a question about a repair/maintenance, DJ or Lawrence C. always explained things to me in a way I could understand!"

Eugene Jones

"This is the best automotive mechanical garage in Kansas. Maybe in the US. The staff are a squad of diagnostic and repair ninjas. The owners are DJ and his wife, Jen. They are personable, friendly, polite and above all they are fair. DJ has serviced and maintained every vehicle my family has owned for the past 7 years. I would recommend anyone not troubled by an abundance of money they just absolutely must waste do business at Automotion. They have saved me THOUSANDS of dollars. DJ is the Yoda of all things automotive."
