Trustworthy Service. Nice to know I dont need to second guess the folks at Rons. I can always count on needed work done well at a fair price/competitive price. On top of that licorice.

Honest, Fast, and Friendly Service. Adam kept me updated with the repair status of my old truck, and didn't try to sell me on overpriced parts when things needed to be replaced. I trust Ron's Auto Repair to get the job done right the first time, every time.

Fast Service. Good Price. I needed my rear brakes replaced, they were grinding metal on metal. Not only did they fix it in just a few hours, but I spent less than $400 for the whole repair.

Jeep Repair Absolutely easy to work and deal with in obtaining an emergency repair. Quotes on work were reasonable and accurate, no surprises. I appreciate the responsive to our vehicle issue and the customer service that was provided. Highly recommend.

Great Service. Had the AC recharged. We are new to Ames and didn't know where to go for service a friend recommended another shop took it there they said it would be next week before they could look at it. Parking lot full of cars but did not see anyone working on anything. Guy in office didn't seem very helpful. Went to Ron's and they said they would work me in 2 hrs later they called and said they were finished. When we picked up the car they explained what they did and what to expect in the further. I thought the price was reasonable. Especially for the fast service. I will use Ron in the further.

They were really helpful when it came to trying to figure out what I needed to get my vehicle repaired. They told me what supplies I could get to fix my vehicle or have someone else do it for me. I could tell they were not trying to rip me off.

I thought my car wouldnt start so I had it towed to Rons. They explained that there was no problem, its just a hybrid and the gas engine wasnt coming on because the hybrid battery was fully charged. Very honest.

They are nice, quick, and reliable. I will always return to them for my car needs. The bigger dealerships take advantage of me being a college student female, and Ron's never makes me feel that way.

Dropped off his vehicle and the person at the business drove him back home. They called him when his vehicle was done and offered to pick him up. His experience was pretty good.

This business was really good and nice. They listen to everything he had to say. They were really timely about getting back to him and they had ideas on what the problem could be while he was there. Their prices are reasonable and exactly what they said it would be and there were no surprises. They fixed what he asked them to fix and they did exactly what they said they were going to do.

My car just had numerous problems and Ron's Auto was able to get my car in and out within a few short days. It was painless and the staff was nice! If the car breaks down of any of my friends, who like me, don't know squat about cars I know where I'll be sending them!

I was very happy with my dealings with Ron's Auto. I have been using them for all my car repairs during my time at Iowa State and they have always been very honest with me. They have never tried to sell me anything I didn't need and have done a great job as well. Thanks!

We have a few ""vintage"" Volvos, and repair investment is always a concern. I'm sure at some time it will be time to put these babies to rest, but for now they just keep rollin'. I always get good advice on the best way to keep the vehicles on the road with the most efficient use of repair $$. THANKS Guys!

They worked me in on short notice for an oil change and to look the car over to see if anything was wrong with it (I just purchased this car recently). They did both, and only charged for the oil change!

I've went with Ron's twice while at ISU. They've offered unprecedented service in my opinion, solving my mysterious car problems. They're honest about costs and what you need. I would recommend them to everyone.

The red 'Brake!' light was on in my brother's car dashboard console and it was beeping constantly (like it does when you try to get out of the car with the lights on, constantly.) So he took his car in and they said it was a malfunctioning sensor and they disabled the beeper. Surely they would check other simple things that would cause those same lights and beepers to go off, right? Such as low break fluid, for example. Well they didn't. Instead, they just tore out the beeper, disabled his windshield wipers (I want to reiterate that, they DISABLED HIS WINDSHIELD WIPERS) and then charged him fifty bucks for it. So now his car STILL has the problem, plus another problem courtesy of Ron's. Avoid this place at all costs.
