About Ahrens Auto Inc Gainesville, FL

Ahrens Auto has been serving the Gainesville area since 1982. Don Ahrens learned his trade from (Ken Ahrens). He started working with his Dad at the young age of 12, yes 12. This was on weekends or after school. This knowledge was not only on how to fix a vehicle but included how to treat customers. Explaining the repairs so the customer new about why, and how it was to be done.

Joey Wilson also learned much of his trade from family at an early age. Don says Joey is one of the most knowledgeable employees he has ever had. His talents cover all lines of cars. Diagnosis is one the most important skills a shop needs and Joey’s knowledge is amazing, from electrical problems to reprogramming engine controls major mechanical problems.

New car maintenance is a large part of what Ahrens Auto does. The Magnasen Fergason law states that it is illegal for dealerships to require or even imply that maintenance is done by the dealership. We can offer any service that is required by the manufacturer. In some cases, some service schedules are not timely enough to extend the life of the vehicle. When we see that there is a needed change we will tell what changes are recommended and why.

Stan Hackathorn our service writer is also knowledgeable about your vehicles. He worked in the parts business for several years. This greatly helps in sourcing the best parts for the job. His friendly demeanor and great organizational skills complete the package or customers to receive value and timely repairs.
