“Quality means doing it right, when no one is looking.”

– Henry Ford

Ottohaus of Charleston is owned and operated by me, Leo Colwill.  It was founded on a simple principle…Providing great service with high standards in quality and your overall satisfaction with a passion for automotive excellence. That means doing things right…the first time…every time!  Having been dealership trained and certified for the entirety of my professional automotive career, I have seen and experienced first hand what they are lacking.  I take responsibility for your auto repair experience from the moment you call Ottohaus to the time you leave our shop.  When you entrust your vehicle in my care, it’s my promise to provide insight and education about your vehicle throughout the entire process.  This affords me the opportunity to make certain that every aspect of your visit will be executed with the utmost quality, honesty, and precision.


We thoroughly understand what you see as the mystery that is auto repair…the lack of comprehension the majority of people have for what we do. It is the catalyst for the skepticism and mistrust that has been exponentially compounded through years of abuse. We know your trust doesn’t come easy. What I can guarantee is that we will give you the best possible understanding of what your vehicle needs, and help you make the right decision for you and your situation. Our job is to help you become an educated consumer, from you the time you call to the time you leave our shop. Whether you utilize our services or that of others, we will provide you with the confidence and power to make the best decision for your vehicle.

Every aspect of your visit will be executed with the utmost quality, honesty, and precision.
