Professional Auto Service & Repair in Hutchinson, MN


IAMotive R.M. offers every service you could need to maintain, repair, restore and improve your vehicle. Domestic or imported – any make, model, or year. If we wouldn’t do it to our own cars, we won’t do it to yours. We don’t expect to have your trust the first time you come to us, but we do expect to earn it in short order.

Custom Welding & Fabrication

IAMotive RM is able to do small fabricating and on or off-vehicle welding needs. On older vehicles, if you need a small bracket fabricated for a fuel pump, if you need a hitch put on a vehicle, or if your exhaust system needs to be repaired…we are able to do it all in-house.

Computerized Diagnostics

Has your vehicle’s check engine light turned on? Or have you recently noticed a difference in performance or handling? Don’t guess at the problem. Come to IAMotive R.M. for the accurate computerized diagnostics you need to make the correct repairs.

A modern vehicle’s onboard computer closely monitors each connected part’s performance. Whenever performance strays from optimal, the computer records diagnostic trouble codes or DTCs. These readings indicate which parts may no longer function correctly, so the mechanic can quickly zero in on any areas that need attention.

DTCs are not enough on their own to guarantee quality repairs. Just like a doctor prescribes treatment based on their patient’s symptoms, a skilled auto mechanic advises repairs based on computerized diagnostics, additional testing, and thorough inspection of the vehicle. The mechanic’s experience determines whether they will provide the correct diagnosis – and IAMotive R.M. has the experience to give our customers accurate and trustworthy diagnoses every time.

We exclusively implement the latest equipment and software the auto repair industry has to offer. In addition to streamlining our diagnostic service, our tools allow us to update vehicles’ onboard computer software. Whether you have noticed a change in your vehicle’s performance or fuel efficiency, updating its electronic control system software with IAMotive R.M. can provide a cost-effective fix.

Oil Changes

Minnesotan weather forces your vehicle’s engine to run in extreme temperatures. Don’t let premature wear and tear cost you big on engine repair. Extend your engine’s lifespan by receiving regular oil changes at IAMotive R.M.

Regular oil changes are low-cost maintenance with a huge return on investment. Even regular driving places immense stress on your engine’s moving parts. Oil lubricates those parts to ensure they work efficiently, and protects them against heat, varnish, and fouling. But oil also becomes thicker and loses purity as it ages, which is why it must be regularly replaced to decrease the risk of engine failure.

We’ll Help You Choose the Best Oil

The best oil for your vehicle is determined by several factors, including your car or light truck’s make and model, the kind of driving you need to do, and how frequently you want to change your oil.

Regardless of your unique needs, we carry the best oil to satisfy them fully. Our owner became a lubricant dealer back while he was maintaining aircraft for the U.S. Air Force, and he has identified the motor oils which represent the best value for a variety of applications and budgets.
