            Peaceful Valley Garage Returns 

After a 20 year absence from the automotive repair scene, Peaceful Valley Garage (PVG) is returning to Staunton.  Many of our friends and neighbors remember PVG.  Since closing that shop in 1999 to pursue other endeavors, we have been told by so many how they miss the honesty and dependability of that automotive repair business that had served the Valley for 35 years.  We purchased it from the founder, Eugene Neff, in 1987 and continued the commitment to excellence and integrity that he had established and maintained all those years.

We opened Shenandoah Valley Diesel in 2009 to fill a need for fleet repairs and maintenance for light, medium, and heavy duty trucks and heavy equipment throughout the Valley.

Now, 10 years later, we are excited to add passenger cars and other gas vehicles to our list of service offerings for current and new customers. 

We invite our former PVG customers to pay us a visit and get reacquainted with…

  • Integrity

  • Fair Pricing

  • Career Seasoned Techs & Mechanics

  • Superior Diagnostic Knowledge

  • No Tech Commissions on Parts Sold, and

  • No Needless Part Replacement
