Since 1984, Buchtel Motors has been known for high-quality service and customer-focused outcomes which continue to remain our number one priority. Meet your team:

Meet Katie

Service with a smile” is something we value at Buchtel and Katie is one of the primary faces of our brand as she “mans” our office playing the dual-role of customer interface and service advisor. With Buchtel for nearly 20 years, Katie values every customer interaction and prides herself on knowing our customers by name. She works with each customer to understand the dynamics of their automotive needs and interfaces with our technicians to ensure those needs are addressed with integrity, respect and partnership. Traditional customer service and customer satisfaction is far from lost at Buchtel with Katie at the helm. So, c’mon by and say hey to our “service with a smile” patriarch.


Meet Rick

Rick is a 40+-year veteran and Master Technician at Buchtel Motors. That’s right, 40+ years, which means Rick’s “the man” when your vehicle needs extra attention. Rick is certified in engine repair, automatic trans/transaxle, manual drive train and axles, suspension and steering, brakes, electrical/electronic systems, heating and air conditioning, engine performance and automobile advanced engine performance. Sound foreign to you? Well you don’t have to worry about that because you can count on Rick and the whole Buchtel crew to use our automotive expertise and training to diagnose and repair your vehicle. So, come on in and meet Rick – test his knowledge and see if you can’t stump “the man.” We’ll see you soon.


Meet David

Named by the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) as one to watch in the automotive industry as part of its “35 under 35” award, David M. Estes is the current President and Owner of Buchtel Motors. David inherited his lifelong passion for the automotive industry from his father who was commonly found in the family garage helping neighbors, friends and acquaintances with their vehicles with nothing more than a handshake and a wave as payment in return. That helping hand and good neighbor philosophy has been engrained in David and is what drives the success of Buchtel Motors. When he’s not busy greeting Buchtel customers and helping his staff, David enjoys spending time with his wife Amy, their son Michael and eagerly awaiting his soon-to-be new daughter – coming this June.


Meet Clay

Clay is one of Buchtel’s Service Technicians and has been with Buchtel Motors for 7 years. Clay is a favorite of many of our customers as he often greets them with a smile and some wit in the front office alongside Katie. But behind that smile is a dependable, certified Technician who can commonly be found in our shop’s first bay serving customer’s vehicle needs like oil changes, suspension, steering and brake jobs. So next time you visit Buchtel, say hey to Clay – his humor and charm is sure to rub off on you too, just like it has our whole team!


Meet James

A Master Technician with 25 years of experience, James has been with Buchtel for 3 years. Certified in engine repair, automatic trans/transaxle, manual drive train and axles, suspension and steering, brakes, electrical/electronic systems, heating and air conditioning, engine performance and automobile advanced engine performance.. Quite the mouthful, but this means that James’ experience, coupled with his Technician peers Clay and Rick, will ensure Buchtel Motors customers get the assistance they need no matter the vehicle issue. So, stop by, say hey to James and think of us the next time your vehicle needs servicing, no matter the issue.


Meet Michael

Did you know Buchtel Motors had a mascot? No, our mascot is not you’re a-typical vehicle, its Buchtel Owner David’s son Michael. This full-of-personality three year old can often be found amusing customers with his charm in the waiting room when he goes to work with Daddy, or at Buchtel Motors events, like our presence at several S. Pearl Street happenings. Like his Daddy, Michael has a love for cars – fast cars and trucks he will tell you. So, next time you see the little guy, pick his brain about his love of cars and trucks, or ask him about Superman and you may never leave…
