Our Crew

Jamie Furtado - Owner, Master Technician

Jamie began his life-long love of cars working with his dad on tractors and automobiles at an early age. Soon after finishing high school, he knew he wanted to work on cars for a living. In 1994, Jamie attended Wyoming Technical Institute (aka WyoTech), and graduated with honors. Two weeks after graduation, he began his professional career at a Jeep dealership. This is where his passion for working on Jeeps began. His next position took him to a Lexus dealership, and during this time he went to night school in order to be certified as a Smog Technician. He used this certification while working at independent repair shops, where he gained experience in smog related repairs. This is also where he developed strong skills in diagnosing and repairing all different makes of vehicles.

In 2000, Jamie opened The Smog Shop, which was a test-only smog station in Modesto, where he was living at the time. After four years of focusing on smog testing, he decided that he wanted to expand into general repair and relocate back to his hometown of Patterson. In 2004, he opened the doors of Five Star Automotive. Jamie has enjoyed growing his business, and expanded the shop to include another bay in 2009. He looks forward to serving the community for years to come.

Jamie, his wife Amanda and daughter Izabel enjoy getting away on the weekends to fun destinations such as Monterey and Sonora. He really likes camping, Jeeping and spending time with his family.
