A Big HELLOOO from Leadfoot Linda’s

Leadfoot Linda’s is family-owned and operated by father-son team George Brodin and Kenneth (Ken) Brodin, with sister Kim Brodin also working in the shop part-time. Our shop’s namesake, Leadfoot Linda, is matriarch of the family. We have served the Vail-Avon community since 1984, building many relationships and friendships with our customers along the way. It is awesome to see these relationships grow—service by service, vehicle by vehicle, and generation by generation. In many cases, we’ve serviced our original customers’ vehicles, their kids’ vehicles, and their grandkids’ vehicles!

We take pride in fixing vehicles right the first time, every time, with your safety being our number one priority. From our family to yours, here’s to many years of trouble-free motoring!
