They fixed my chevy truck. I was having some major financial problems, so they let me pay $20 a week for several months, and did not charge storage or any additional fees, not even interest. Very decent fellows, and even said they appreciated my honesty! I will always recommend them to friends. They are a shining example to all small businesses-Charge a fair price to stay in business, and take care of all your customers. In fact, I was shocked, when two years after the work was done on my truck, the guy I dealt with walked into my store, and still remembered my name!

Last year I took advantage of Ron's Automotive 100 point vehicle inspection and free oil change offer. They recommended replacing the front McPherson struts, upper bearing plates, and spring isolators, as well as the power steering rack boots, on my '85 Toyota Corolla (a car which has been in the family since birth, and which had 152,000 miles on it.) I didn't opt for these repairs and kept driving, without apparent consequences. Then, last month, with 169,500 miles, I took the Corolla to Costco for the free tire rotation and air pressure check. As soon as they put the car on the lift and took the weight off the wheels, the right front strut flopped over, having come completely disconnected from the upper bearing plate. The tire guys were astonished, and said it was only the second time they had seen a case like this in 20 years of putting tires on cars. They said I had been just one big speed bump away from a crash. We then muscled the strut back into place, lowered the weight of the car onto it, and--over their objections--I drove it slowly (very) home. I then took it back to Ron's Automotive to have them do the work they had suggested last year. The struts for my old car were not locally available and had to be ordered, and it turned out the rack and pinion steering gear and tie rod ends also needed replacing, but Ron's did all the work professionally and for the reasonable estimated price, and kept me well informed of what they were doing at each stage. They even let me in the shop to see the work in progress and talk with the mechanic doing the work--which in my experience is pretty rare these days. I have taken my car to these guys three or four times, and always found them to be competant, honest, reasonably priced, and friendly. I would recommend them to anyone.

They are not cheap, but they seem very trustworthy and competent. It is nice to have a good mechanic I can trust.

I had taken my 1989 Toyota Corolla to this shop a few times for various repairs, oil changes, etc., and was really impressed with the service. They are very professional, take the time to explain what is really needed and what is extra, and were very quick. When my vehicle blew a head gasket, they let me know that it would be much cheaper and economical to replace the vehicle than to go in for costly repairs, even though it meant that I wouldn't be spending the money at their shop. I really appreciated their candor, and though I bought a Prius and have bought a service contract with it, I will be taking my vehicle back to Ron's when the contract is up next month.
