Luke’s Auto & Diesel Repair has been very busy since opening up in Dresden earlier this year. The owner, Luke Higgs, is a native of Dresden and offers eight years of experience with automotive and diesel repairs. His team includes Ken Kanaday, Cody Scronce and Zack VanMeter, who each have at least five years of experience.

Higgs wanted to open his business up in Dresden because it is his hometown.

Luke’s is one of a handful of diesel repair shops in Weakley County.

Passerbys may have noticed the new driveway and paving project that transformed the entrance to the locally-owned business.

    Yeah, Luke’s diesel will steal your DPF & claim,it was stolen from his shop and put in $120 CRS wheel, bearing assemblies from Amazon when you paid for $500 Moog put your vacuum seals in with a chisel and punch and drive your truck like a race car my GPS told on him going 98 mph taking my truck to get the frontend aligned I’ still have all of the GPS logs to prove it & photos & video don’t trust him any further than you can see him and definitely go behind and check his work. All of the stuff on the surface will look good. It’s the stuff you can’t see is where he will cheap out.
