Michael Reed - Owner/Operator
I started working as a tire technician in 2000 for a small shop in Colorado and quickly moved through the positions and became a senior tech with the company. I found a new home in Arizona in 2010 and started a bachelor's degree in Culinary Management while managing six repair facilities in the East Valley. While managing multiple locations, plenty of professional automotive contacts and relationships were built that progressed towards consulting and then business ownership.
Spectrum Car Care was an amazing opportunity that presented itself and the right time. I worked the front counter as the store manager for 2 years before purchasing the establishment in 2021. Ethical automotive repairs is how my career started and that is the center focus of my success in this industry. Customers are educated throughout the entire repair process for a transparent repair. Our staff prides themselves on ethical automotive repair.
I am an enthusiastic outdoorsman that loves to get lost on any dirt road. I enjoy cooking magnificent meals, fine wine, and traveling with my wife.

Taking care of my family and always working towards bettering myself each and everyday. I love traveling with my wife, it would be amazing to play golf in as many countries as I possibly can.
Early in life I took 2 years of drafting and I love architectural design. I achieved all 3 insurance licenses and I am a certified EMT. I have been in customer service all my life and enjoy helping customers.
I am a romantic. I love to watch “rom-coms” with my wife. Favorite movie to watch would be Hit and Run. Fantastic car and very funny.
Customer service and loyalty to both the customer and Spectrum Car Care is top priority at all times. Having a fantastic staff that repairs the vehicles ethically and correctly is a blessing.

I have been working on cars for 15+ years and enjoy learning every day. I strive to be the best of the best, this includes fixing cars, leading other technicians and raising my girls.
I am a germaphobe. I like things to be clean and organized. When I am not at work, I love taking my girls in my Jeep out to the mountains and exploring.
I am a willing and able body with great wit and humor, I have critical thinking skills, mechanical smarts and dedication to the company.

I truly care about the customer and fixing cars correctly. If the customer's car is fixed correctly and I know I did a good job, I can sleep at night.

I completed 2 years of automotive school and have been fixing cars for just over 4 years. I really enjoy learning new repair processes and fixing cars in general.
In my free time I am 4 wheeling with friends and family. I have explored so many different places in Arizona and really enjoy being out in nature. Small towns that aren’t full of tourists yet is where you will find me on the weekends
I enjoy fabricating anything to do with home remodeling, and car repairs. Old antique diving and scuba equipment is fascinating and learning the history behind the different uses is intriguing.
