    What to expect

    We are fully aware of the fact that our typical customer is having a bad day.  Transportation, money, and trust issues all come to a head. You need to choose someone to guide you.

    When you arrive at our shop you will find clean and friendly service.  Most people comment on how clean our shop is even when we think it’s dirty.

    Meet, and ride with a tech.  We believe it is important to experience the problem with the customer when ever possible.  A tech will interview you to get an idea of what to look for.  We then go for a ride together.  When a customer can point out the problem to a tech, it removes one of the biggest problems with getting your car fixed right the first time.

    Since most people don’t deal with broken cars very often, we have developed an interview process that helps our customers relate their car concerns to us most effectively.

    There is no need for our customers to know automotive tech talk.  We know it is stressful enough getting car problems resolved.

    When having problems with your car there are some things that are helpful to notice.

    1. Are there any warning lights on?
    2. At what speed does the symptom occur?
    3. At what RPM does the symptom occur?
    4. What makes the problem stop?
    5. Can the problem be made to reoccur at will?
    6. Have you noticed any fluids leaking?
    7. Have you noticed any odd smells?
    8. How often does it happen?
    9. Are there any consistencies associated with the problem?

    Our Proven Record of Commitment to the Automotive Industry

    In 1960 Pat O'Neill left the familiar life of a dealership mechanic to start his own business.  The business grew quickly and Pat expanded the facility in 1964.  Through the early 70's O'Neills was a complete automotive service center.  Pat's reputation as a transmission authority combined with the high volume of transmission repair needed caused Pat to market his business as a specialty transmission shop.

    By the 80's Pat's influence had expanded far beyond his business.  He was known as a great mechanic, as well as a good business man and community leader.  This reputation has called him to be an arbitrator, professional witness, and multiple terms as association Presidents.  Pat also served on an advisory committee to the Bureau of Automotive Regulations for the State of Michigan.  This committee help to develop test that would be used to certify mechanics working in Michigan.  Pat also addressed the Michigan State Legislators on behalf of repair shops in Michigan in 1978.

    Pat incorporated his business in 1988, and made his son Tedd a partner.  Tedd continued to learn all facets of running the business from Pat.

    The 90's saw the third generation begin to make contributions to the business.  Shaun in 1999 followed by Craig in 2002.

    Although Pat is retired from the daily life of fixing cars, he is still very active in the automotive community.  Pat was heard on Wood 1300's Auto Talk on Saturday mornings until his grandson Shaun O'Neill took over for him.  He is also writing a book about the life of an auto mechanic dating back to the 1930's.

    Having such a long history has the effect of long standing trust.  As with any long standing trust, no one would ever want to do anything that would betray that trust within the community.

    This is your assurance we will continue to strive for excelence.
