Polar Automotive and Radiator is a family owned and operated auto repair shop which serves, the greater Santa Cruz area including: Scotts Valley, Capitola, Soquel, Aptos, and Watsonville. It was originally established in 1948, and was named Polar Radiator. In 1984, the Woolever family purchased Polar Radiator and moved its location to the Harvey West Park Area. In 2005, in an effort to expand the radiator business, Greg Woolever opened a full service auto repair and named the business Polar Automotive and Radiator. 

Polar Auto and Radiator is a small neighborhood auto repair shop with big values such as honesty, integrity and dependability. Greg Woolever, co-owner of Polar Auto and Radiator enjoys the challenges of operating an auto repair shop as well as a radiator repair shop. He is ASE certified and has over 25 years experience in the auto repair and service industry. The most rewarding part of Greg’s work day is developing a good working relationship with his customers.
