A local entrepreneur with deep roots in the local business community is opening Louisville’s newest Cottman Transmission and Total Auto Care center.  David Gimbel, who has built several businesses in the area over the past 25 years, is opening the new auto repair center this month at 4047 Taylorsville Rd. in the Hikes Point neighborhood on Louisville’s east side.

Auto Repair Center

Gimbel’s new center replaces a recently closed Cottman center.  The new center, according to Gimbel, is housed in a building that had been an auto repair shop since 1968.  It has 6 bays, fitted with the latest diagnostic equipment. The exterior has been repainted and landscaped.  A customer-friendly waiting area is being completed, with comfortable couches, a large-screen TV and free WiFi.

The new center, set to open in January, has many of the expert crew who had served customers for years at the old location.

“I’m fortunate that as I’m opening my new shop, I’ve been able to keep almost all of the experienced crew from the old location,” Gimbel said.  “They know the customers and the community, and they certainly know their jobs and do them well.”

Gimbel, a Louisville native and who attended schools here, feels he has a winning combination – the reputation of the Cottman brand, a great team and a good, convenient location.  “Outstanding customer service will be our number one goal,” he said. “We aim to do the highest quality work and back it with the Cottman guarantee.  We will always stand behind our work.”
