The Daily Scoop from Charlotte Shaff


Community Tire Pros and Auto Repair is currently in the developing stages of creating a “Community Salsa Garden 2013!” The innovative venture will feature an educational and sustaining garden as a gift from Community Tire Pros, complete with planting for kids at the Friendly House, future oil replacement plants for tires, recycling, repurposing, and way to bring fresh produce to a community that is a “food desert,” meaning the area has no shopping for miles. Community Tire Pros hopes the garden will bring the neighborhood together for a worthwhile cause that benefits the entire community. The garden will be located across the street from Community Tire Pros and Auto Repair Corporate office near Durango and Central Ave and will hosted a groundbreaking ceremony Friday, October 26th, 2012 with city officials, respected guests and community members in attendance. 

“We have an extensive selection of resources that would help kids to learn more about the importance of planting, gardening and oil replacements,” said Patricia Fleischmann, Director of First Impressions with “It’s our objective to help teachers and parents make this not only a really fun outdoor experience, but a learning tool for building a healthier, stronger community. ”

Community Tire Pros have a long term goal for the garden, ultimately wanting the land to mature and grow into a Farmer’s Market wherecommunity members can participate in monthly exchanges of vegetables and other items for their families. They hope to eventually seek out sponsors for plots where 90% of the crops harvested are donated back to the neighborhood. Community Tire Pros along with surrounding city officials believe this garden will change the lives of those in the community who are unable to travel outside of the “food desert,” and provide those families with healthy alternatives. Community Tire Pros will supply a team of master gardeners that will educate kids about the importance of planting, the wonder of Mother Nature and how to give back. They desire to instill in these children “pride and delight, will grow in abundance.”


Since 1991, Community Tire Pros and Auto have been serving Arizona communities with their knowledge and dedication to their full service facilities, offering complete automotive service and automotive repair. Understanding that the community comes first, they have been actively participating in bettering the neighborhoods in which they have repair facilities. They chose their name to reflect the true image and beliefs their company and associates stand for as they believe in giving to and supporting our local communities and have built a reputation of providing the highest level of honest and professional service in their industry.

Did your auto repair shop close down? November 18, 2008

Community Tire & Automotive Service Specialists are opening their shops to drivers who have warranties or contracts with local auto shops that have closed in the past year. More than 50 independent auto shops in Arizona have shut their doors due to the slow economy, stranding drivers with broken down cars, empty wallets and added stress. Community Tire & Automotive is stepping up to help and wants to ensure those drivers are able to receive the full value of their warranties.

In 2000, the average annual cost for vehicle repairs was $6,880. Since most warranties will cover these routine costs, it is important for drivers to take advantage of this opportunity to use their warranties. In a time where every cent counts, spending extra money on car repair is a choice most people cannot afford.

“We understand the burden on your job and family when a car is not running right,” said Howard Fleischmann, owner of Community Tire & Auto Service. “By welcoming these car owners and honoring their warranties we are hoping to make the lives of everyone in the community a little easier during this financially slow economy.”

If a problem occurs with a vehicle that may be covered under warranty from any closed shop, bring the paperwork to one of the Community Tire & Auto Service locations and the warranty guidelines will be discussed with the owner to find a reasonable solution for costs and parts.

Community Tire & Auto Services Specialists have been part of the community since 1992. The family owned company has grown to seven locations over 17 years in the business and has developed a reputation of providing the highest level of honest and professional service. The Community Tire & Automotive Service Specialists continue to be involved in the community by supporting local business and encouraging all management personnel to be involved in community activities. Mr. Fleischmann believes that customer service is not just an over used tag line or promise it is their goal to exceed every client’s expectations each and every time they visit a shop. Community Tire was awarded the Greater Phoenix Chamber Small Business of the Year Impact Award, plus the Spirit of Enterprise Award from ASU School of business in 2008. This follows the Better Business Bureau Ethics finalist award in 2007. For more information please visit
