CARSTAR Expands Into Northern CA with Addition of CARSTAR Espana's San Jose

CARSTAR Auto Body Repair Experts is expanding in California with the addition of CARSTAR España’s San Jose. With ten shops currently operating in Southern California, this latest addition is the first CARSTAR location in Northern California.

Michael Espana, owner of CARSTAR Espana's in San Jose, CA, recently joined the network


CARSTAR España’s San Jose is a family operated business, owned by Miguel E. España. The family has been repairing vehicles at this location for more than two decades. The shop is located at 470 E. Brokaw Rd., San Jose, CA 95112.

España made the decision to join CARSTAR based on the recommendation of several current owners. He also liked the fact that he can have the advantages of being a part of a large MSO, while still retaining his individual ownership.

“I’m pleased for the opportunity to be part of the CARSTAR family,” said España. “After meeting and learning from some of the CARSTAR store owners from all over the country, there was no doubt in my mind that I w anted to be part of the big CARSTAR Network. With their focus on expanding, high quality repairs, superior customer satisfaction and continuing to grow the relations with the insurance partners, all of this is in line with my business culture. Today we are very excited to be part of something big and that still allows us to be independent, yet with the protection and the advantages of a nationwide company network competing with the large MSOs.”

CARSTAR España’s San Jose is in a modern 12,000 square foot facility, equipped with up to date estimating, measuring, and repair software and tools. The shop utilizes Mitchell and Audatex estimating software, Car-O-Liner racks with Car-o-Tronic measuring system, Spraybake heated downdraft paint booth, Pro Spot welding systems, and more.
