Costa Rica leads in auto service shops

Costa Rica boasts the largest automotive industry support network in Central America.

Of the 15,000 or so in automobile service stations, repair shops and car parts stores in the seven-country- region, nearly 31% are located in Costa Rica. Meanwhile, 20% are in Guatemala, and 15% are in Panama, according to geo-location and commercial establishment research company Central America data.

Among the largest players in Costa Rica are Super Batteries, Eurotaller, and other auto parts giants. Those in Guatemala are automobile service stations Llanresa and Vitatrac, and those in Panama are the Terpel service stations, Dilupa lube and filter shops, as well as Eurotaller. Having sufficient post-sales support is key to running your fleet efficiently.
