Automotive Maintenance, Repair, and Rental Center

For Service, Call (505) 277-3670 

Service Notice: Due to temporary staffing shortages in the FM Automotive Center, customers may see delays in some repair services. All vehicle services will continue to be managed by Automotive staff; however, on a short-term basis, some advanced repairs will be outsourced to trusted providers which may extend service times. Fuel, new vehicle purchasing, and basic preventative maintenance, such as oil changes, will not be impacted.  

The Automotive Center encourages departments with UNM vehicles to plan ahead for preventative maintenance and schedule services in advance of need where possible. For questions or to schedule service, please call 277-3670, Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
