Ron's is a very busy shop with a number of mechanics including his married son. Busy as he is, Ron is always friendly and willing to take the time to listen to whatever the vehicle owner has to say. Furthermore, he carefully explains what was done and why. I have known him since he worked for an excellent carburetation/ignition man in an independent shop and learned from that man. Not only is he an excellent mechanic but he has done work for me any number of times on an emergency basis. When my newly purchased '91 GMC Suburban stalled he came right out and figured out quickly that connections hadn't been tightened when a starter solenoid was replaced; his experience is priceless and he runs a tight ship.

Excellent full service shop. Have worked on my Nissan and my baby, a 1957 Buick. Everything done promptly and correctly with a good explanation of what went wrong and how it was fixed.

The '91 Ford Escort had a funny click in one of the front tires, and since the bearings were recently replaced by a do-it-yourselfer on that wheel, naturally one would think that it wasn't done right. I took wagon in to Ron's and they drove it around for a while and, of course, no noise. When I stopped in to pick it up, I drove around with one of the mechanics with me and sure enough, no noise again. They said if the noise happens again, come in right away. I drive off and a block later, there's the clicking!! I return and snag a mechanic and take him with me, he hears it too so it's not just in my head (whew). At a stop sign he tells me to wait, and he hops out and goes by the wheel and climbs back into the vehicle with the hub cap in his hands. Noise eliminated. All that trouble to find a broken plastic piece on the hub cap.

Worked on my 86 Taurus, 80 Olds Cutlass, 91 Toyota Corolla. Very competant, father & married son team. They go to all the auto technology clinics. Are willing to take time with to explain, before & after. They explain all the options & ramifications of them. Best auto shop I've ever experiencec & I've live all over the country. Prices not cheap but work is A1!
