Charlie's Service & Repair is a business in Empire Bay.


It is a chain of automotive repair shops in Empire Bay that belong to Charlie Lopez. He runs the business from his main office at Charlie's Service Station in Southport along with his mechanic Tommy.

They offer vehicle repair and customization, including engine upgrades, color changes, wheels and tires, and personalized license plates. With the installation of either The Betrayal of Jimmy or Jimmy's Vendetta they will have an additional level of engine upgrade and custom paint such as racing stripes and flames.

  • Upgrading a car to level one will earn the player the Tuned Ride achievement.
  • Upgrading a car to level two will earn the player the Dream Handling achievement.
  • Vehicles can also be repaired in your garage for a price. In all three of the game's DLCs your garage automatically repairs your car at no charge; however, unlike the base game, the repair does not clean it.
  • Entering a Body Shop automatically cleans your vehicle. This can be used as a quick way to wash a car instead of using a Shiny car wash.
