Welcome 5-star Auto Repair & Exhaust of Lexington

We were formerly known as 5-Star Exhaust and Quick Lube. The 5-Star shop has been in business for 16 years in Lexington. In April of 2018, the owner decided to retire and sold the business to one of his long-time employees - Ryan Dougherty. Ryan started at 5-Star over 10 years ago and worked his way up from mechanic to lead technician, to shop foreman, then to shop manager. When presented with the opportunity to purchase the business, he happily accepted.

"Even though I have changed the business name, the shop still retains the same amazing staff, fair prices, honest assessment of your vehicle, and quality repairs you have grown to expect. I look forward to continually earning your repeat business and keeping you safe and comfortable on the road"
- Ryan Dougherty, owner
