Dave Gruen has lived in the San Luis Obispo County for 46 years. His love for vehicles started early with his 68 Mustang. In 2002 he started his career as a parts consultant at Kimball Motor Company. By 2009 he wanted to learn more about the automotive industry, so he became a service consultant at a local independent Mercedes Benz shop. It was there he found out how much he enjoyed taking care of people and their vehicles. Dave’s goal is to take care of people, “Cars don’t drive themselves to the shop”. In Dave’s free time he likes working in the yard, loves fishing, and cooking for his family, wife Josette and daughter Shelby.
