I've been a customer of Don Ahrens for nearly as long as he's been in business and wouldn't hesitate to recommend his services to anyone. He's done everything from a simple oil change to scheduled factory recommended maintenance to a timing belt replacement and everything in between. I've found him to be honest and reliable and very customer oriented. He's always given me honest answers to what the problem is and how much it will cost, and I've never had him do anything that he didn't discuss with me first, and that includes finding things not initially seen on the original inspection or diagnosis of a problem. Many years ago I brought in my car to have him work on the suspension and he was honest enough to tell me it wouldn't be worth the cost to have the work done. A less honest mechanic might have taken the job anyway and then hit me up for costs for "unforseen" problems. I have recommended him to several of my friends and they have all been very happy with him and continue to use him whenever necessary. The fact that he specializes in only a few brands allows him to better understand the individual characteristics and problems associated with those brands and also more knowledgeable and able to promptly fix whatever problems there are. His employees are always courteous and very knowledgeable and take the time to explain what they think the problem might be as well as what they actually did for the repair. As for the cost, while he's not the cheapest in town he certainly isn't the most expensive either, but you can be sure the repair will be done right and in nearly all cases done on the same day. To me, it's all about customer service, and that's the difference that has made this place worth coming back to over and over again for all these years.
