My father was a mechanic, I've rebuilt a few engines myself, and I did all my own auto repair for years before I started taking my vehicles (Accord, Rabbit, Chevy Pickup) over 20 years ago to Frank, his son Bill, and his wife Sharon (office). I ask lots of questions and expect good answers and good service at a reasonable price and have always gotten it, as have my brother, two sons, and various friends. I'm a little perfectionist about my vehicles and Frank tells me when I'm considering having him do something that doesn't really need to be done - or at least not yet - or when there's a less expensive but still good option. I take any vehicle I'm considering buying (or my family is considering buying) to him to check out. I ask him tough questions (like how to handle the automatic transmission on my one ton pickup pulling 20,000 pounds over the pass) and get good answers. Over the last ten years I've learned to trust his son, Bill's answers almost as much as Frank himself, and his wife Sharon has always been helpful, courteous, and efficient. These are not politicians, but good honest gentle people doing good work and looking out for your pocketbook as well as their own. I couldn't recommend anyone more highly.

Central Auto was highly recommended by numerous friends. I decided to take a chance since I have been burned so many times in the past by other shops in the area. I have never regreted it. Bill and Frank were honest from the very first visit. When I started my own buisness Central Auto was there to help me in all areas of my new fleet, from the pre-purchase to the maintence that has always kept my vehicles on the road and never any breakdowns. I would recommend these guys to anyone. Frank is always very helpful and Bill will take the time to help you understand the cost and the reason for the repairs.
