Have you been looking for auto mechanics in the Baldwin and Hudson area who can perform computer diagnostics on your vehicle? At Next Generation Auto, our auto repair technicians enjoy the challenge of diagnostics and look forward to your visit so we can discuss what we uncover. We enjoy problem-solving and getting to the bottom of tough diagnostics issues so you can be confident that your vehicle is performing at its best.

Gone are the days when an auto repair technician’s main tools are a wrench and screwdriver. These days, auto mechanics need to understand computer diagnostics on a deep level. Modern vehicles are like sophisticated networks on wheels, with many moving parts controlled by computers. Modern cars now typically have 50 or more onboard computer modules, which control everything from the windows to the braking systems. As you can tell, in-depth knowledge of diagnostics is critical for your vehicle’s auto repair technician. Our auto repair technicians in our Baldwin and Hudson locations have this detailed knowledge of diagnostics.

Our technicians at Next Generation Auto have the perfect blend of old-school, small-town friendliness and high-tech knowledge. To keep up with our understanding of diagnostics, all our technicians are ASE-Certified. Our 2-year/24,000-mile warranty gives you peace of mind; plus our Baldwin and Hudson locations offer four loaner cars for your convenience. We know you might have other things to do while we dive into your vehicle’s diagnostics testing, so we have a comfy waiting room if you’d like to relax.

I went there for the first time the other day. I was impressed with the staff and their knowledge. They brought me out in the shop and showed me what was wrong with my vehicle! Definitely will be going back!

They were able to take a look at my car right away. I really appreciate the detail that Steve was able to provide. He explained the repairs required and the cost was reasonable; actually better than I expected. I will consider them for future work.

Melissa at the front desk is so incredibly friendly over the phone and in person. I appreciated the overall car inspection. It was so nice that it could be sent via text message to make it even more convenient. Overall, it was a excellent experience with such nice people!

Had a great experience here in the Fall of 2019. Head gaskets replacements in our Duramax… Since it was a huge job, I researched shops all over the twin cities area and Next Gen didn’t disappoint. Worked with Melissa and Cody and felt well informed through the whole process; they helped us identify other opportunistic items to work on. Very responsive to all my questions. They provided us a loaner car through the couple weeks our truck was in the shop. The truck has worked well over the past few months. Great work, i’m grateful to have a reliable truck again during these odd times.
