Josh Gendron is a graduate of Bismarck State College, where he also was honored with the outstanding student award from the auto tech program. While attending BSC, Josh competed on the state and national level for auto technology skills. He placed first in the state of north Dakota and took ninth in the nation. He also worked at an independent shop at a technician and served as assistant manager of O’Reily auto parts. Still in college, he later became certified as an Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) Master Technician. Since then, he has recertified as an ASE master tech two separate times.
After graduating, Josh began working for Schwan Cadillac in Mandan. Josh believes in ongoing training, so he worked hard to achieve the general motors gold certification several times while working there. Josh began pursuing his dream of running his own shop on March 12, 2018. That was his last day working at Schwan. The very next day, that dream came alive when Lincoln repair opened its doors for business.
Josh is so grateful for the opportunity to service the vehicles of our community. He credits his tremendous success thus far to the many people who have played a role in mentoring, contributing, assisting and partnering. As a way of giving back, Josh passes what he’s learned forward and sponsors various business and organization events in the community.
One more important note to mention. Josh’s dream of having his own automotive repair facility is based on one very important thing: compassion. Josh believes in offering the kind of customer care you would receive in a small town… A place you can walk into, have a cup of coffee and talk with staff. He’s created a place where customers aren’t just another job… They’re friends who feel comfortable coming back for all their automotive needs. That’s why he says, “small town care at Lincoln Repair.”
Josh and his wife Meghan have 3 daughters: Hannah, Madison and Avrie. Together as a family, they enjoy being outdoors hunting, fishing and camping.

I will only go to Lincoln Repair and will always recommend them to everyone I know! I had my 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee... towed to the shop as it needed a new engine. I knew it was going be an expensive, lengthy repair that I was dreading. Josh and his staff made sure to make the experience more accommodating by lending a loaner vehicle. Ryan made daily contact to discuss progress. I had my vehicle back in the most timely manner given the amount of work that needed to be done.The day I got my vehicle back a hose must have came lose when I drove the gravel road. It started smoking and I was so nervous about my next options for another repair. There was absolutely no reason to fret with Lincoln Repair as Josh, himself drove the hour out of town to my vehicle and drove it back to his shop to have it cleaned up and looked over to make sure I was safe. Not only did he do that but the next day brought my vehicle back out of town to me!!! Literally, above and so far beyond any expectations you can have in a repair shop.read more

LOVE THEM. They treat you like family (great family- not a bad family). They offer rides to and from your house or a... vehicle. Treat the kids well if you bring a kid in. Easy to work with. They back the price that was given. They do a thorough job. I had to get my ac replaced, they told me when they ordered the parts, the cost prior to, when the parts were in and helped me any way they could.

Gerard Weigel, Satisfied Customer
Impressed with the overall experience. Made sure to call us when there was an issue they weren’t sure would be covered by our repair plan, to see if it was ok to do. Kept us in the loop for the whole process. Great job and the car is fixed, what more can you ask for.
Daniel Bodine, Satisfied Customer
This is by far the best auto repair shop that I have been to. Extremely clean, knowledgeable, friendly, helpful and accommodating. I will be returning to Lincoln Repair for all of my future auto repair needs. They also made dealing with my extended warranty provider a breeze.
