I trust this guy. He is well known in Florida racing and handles some of the nicest cars in the area.

This guy does great work! I was down at the 24 Hours of Daytona and he drove the winning car! He's always done great work on my Nissan Quest Mini-van--we've even done some dubage in the back!

The best thing about this shop is that they know these cars inside and out. They can find a problem other mechanic can't find and that is worth a little extra money (which it will cost).

The first time I went to Ahrens, a dashboard light was coming on. They hooked my car up to the computer and nothing was wrong. They did not charge me. They were fast, courteous, and fair. I've gone bac since for oil changes and an alternator replacement. Each time I am in and out quickly. With the alternator, they told me when it would be done, offered me a ride home, and delivered on time. I'm very happy to have such an auto service center nearby. Plus, it's close to downtown, so you can walk around if you have to wait.

I used to have the best mechanic in town but, when I sold my old car and got my "newer" car, my favorite mechanic told me that there was a place in town that he thought would do a better job with it than he. I was sad to say good-bye to my old mechanic and very sceptical of trying a new place - Ahren's. I have been going to Ahren's Auto for many years now and have never been more pleased. They are accomodating with all customer service. They take the time to talk to you about your car's issues. They understand that not all import car drivers are rich. The front office staff, and the staff in the garage, and Don Ahren himself are some of the nicest and most honest mechanics anyone could ask for.

I have been going to Don's shop for more than 18 years and they have always done the best work. He and Dave, the office manager, take the time to explain everything, as well as provide advice over the phone, if you're stuck somewhere well away from the shop. Because my car is older, Don has figured out how to repair things for which he can no longer get parts. And anytime you're not satisfied with their work, they will make it right. They also provide rides to work and to your home, even though my house is way on the other side of town. I have never had any regrets about taking my car to them.

When my bug mechanic told me he couldn't work on my Nissan he recommended Ahren's. I am very wary of mechanics, so I talk to a lot of people and have a long probation period until I trust them. I have been talking my Nissan to Don for over 20 years and always find their work of high caliber and their genuine interest in getting things right keeps me coming back.
