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.
