For more than 30 years, Uptown Auto Specialist has provided New Orleans and Jefferson Parish motorists with a full range of maintenance services and auto repairs, including steering and suspension system solutions. Besides specializing in German-made automobiles, our auto mechanics are also equally capable of performing expert steering and suspension or other auto repairs on Asian and domestic brands. With tenure at Uptown Auto Specialist ranging from 5 to 25 years, we also have proven NOLA auto repair experience.

Your vehicle’s steering and suspension are essential to safe, reliable, and sure-footed handling — whether moving or coming to a stop. The auto mechanics at Uptown Auto Specialist combine expertise, experience, and education. Owner Paul Cosma goes to great lengths to ensure he and his staff stay up-to-date on advancements in auto repairs, ever-evolving diagnostics, and the information resources necessary today to deliver proper service and auto repair, especially for steering and suspension systems.

These resources are essential to complete and safe auto repair today, so we partially offset these investments by charging a prorated fee for the vehicles we service each year. It’s how we service and repair your vehicles without compromise. Other competitors may choose not to keep their knowledge, skills, information resources, or equipment current so they can charge less, but we won’t shortchange your vehicle steering or suspension systems’ health, longevity or performance.

Uptown Auto Specialist also has a complete body shop onsite, in the event you have collision damage that needs attention in addition to your steering and suspension. In fact, many local body shops also send us the vehicles they’ve made look cosmetically nice and structurally sound on the outside, but which still need the undercar mechanical services and repairs to restore them to safe and dependable operation. In addition, given New Orleans’ predisposition to heavy hurricane rains and annual Mississippi River high water levels, Uptown Auto Specialist offers three services unique to the NOLA climate: (1) pre-purchase inspections, so customers know a used car is in good condition before they buy it; (2) complete restorative fresh-, but not corrosive salt-water flooded car auto repairs; and (3) we also have a fully equipped body shop on site if you have collision damage that needs to be fixed.
