We are conveniently located at 181 Defense Highway, one block east of the State Vehicle Emissions Test Station in Annapolis, Maryland.

In addition to the above, we can also provide towing when necessary.


Our goal at Criswell Collision Center is to return your vehicle to you restored to pre-collision condition or better and provide our customers with timely, affordable, effective service in a friendly, professional environment. It is our responsibility to make sure our clients receive both the best service and the best value for that service. We will make sure any questions about repairs or insurance are answered, and that our clients drive home with peace of mind and satisfaction.

What Our Customers Are Saying


Always excellent service at Criswell. One of the best Audi certified centers in the area. Kurt did an awesome job of communicating and following up with me in regards to my repairs (even better than my own insurance!). Quick turnaround time. I highly recommend them!


Kurt Thompson helped my husband and I with our A4. Very Polite courteous and professional. If you ever need any body work done, I recommend you see him.


We recently took our new car to Criswell Collision after a head on collision with extensive damage. Kurt and his crew not only repaired the damage but improved the molding, door and trim gaps to better than the factory original. The paint was blended perfectly with the factory finish. Kurt somehow found a way to get factory parts when my insurance company wanted him to use recycled parts. I wouldn't take my car anywhere else in the future [hopefully never].


My brand-new Audi Q5 had a small factory imperfection on the rear bumper that required the bumper to be removed, a small area repainted, and the entire bumper clear coated. Criswell Collision did an outstanding job. Vehicle was returned as promised. Many thanks to Kurt Thompson and his staff for a job well done.


I had a terrific experience with Kurt Very professional and delivered the car early I had to turn in my leased car by the end of the month. Kurt said he would try and entire experience was superb


Very simple process to getting your car fixed. Very quick given the difficulties caused by COVID-19. Everyone I talked to were very nice and thoughtful. Kurt did a wonderful job with communication and creating a friendly atmosphere.


Always use a detergent designed specifically for car washing. Don't use common dish washing detergent which is too strong and will remove the wax.

Always keep a good coat of wax or paint sealant on your car.

Make a habit of detailing your car. Detail your car regularly and inspect the finish.

Always use a good wax with a high Carnauba content.

You are much better off to wax your car more frequently than to try to apply a heavy coat of wax.

If you are involved in an accident don't make any public statements about who is at fault.

Keep a disposable camera with a flash in your glove box in the event you have an accident. Then take LOTS of pictures!

Be sure to remove sand and salt spray as soon as possible from your car to protect your car's finish.

Check tire inflation at least once a month. Under-inflated tires can result in a loss of fuel efficiency.

A fouled spark plug or plugged/restricted fuel injector can reduce fuel efficiency as much as 30 percent.

For maximum fuel economy, stay below 60 mph.

Don't forget to check the tire pressure of your spare tire!

Buying a fuel with a higher octane than your car requires will not boost performance.

Unlike A/C in the summer, you can run the car's heater as much as you want in the winter without effecting gas mileage.
