    Good Mechanic in Ames?

    Do any of you know of a good mechanic here in Ames? I have already called the GM dealer here in Ames (its a Buick). Do any of you have any other suggestions? Thank you in advance.

    I use Mark Hansen for repairs: Mark Hansen?s Automotive Repair and Car Care Services and More

    I also had a good experience with Wayne Larson for collision repair: Wayne Larson Collision Specialists - Trusted By Central Iowans For Over 30 Years!

    Midas. Had great service with them on cars for our whole family for 10 years.

    And I saw one of the owners at the Cyclone Fanatic Recruitment Day party two years ago!

    Ron's is very good and reasonably priced, but because of that, can be very busy. If you need it quickly, he might not be your best option.


    If it's worth doing, it's worth doing right!!

    Redling's Service at the Gilbert corner or Denny's Automotive on East Lincoln Way are both very good and I've had great luck in the past with both of them.

    Been there a few times. Seems like an honest mechanic to me, not a big operation but sometimes that's better.
