Leseberg’s also accepts government fleet cards, and they are certified for state purchasing.

Located at 512 U.S. Highway 60 in Socorro, Leseberg’s can be contacted by calling (575) 838-4101.

J.V. Professional Automotive also offers hometown-friendly services, whether a regular oil change or that weird noise your car started making.

J.V. Professional’s customers are their best promotional asset, and as one customer explained online, their repair was a seamless process.

“Johnny towed our car, correctly diagnosed it, and quickly repaired our car. His pricing was more than fair. He is honest and kind. He picked up my husband at our hotel to bring him back to the shop when our car was ready. You will not find a more pleasant, reasonably priced, honest, and talented professional,” Gail B. wrote online.

J.V. Professional Automotive is located at 500 6th Street N in Socorro, and their phone number is 575 835-0005.
