Auto Europa rebuilt my 1987 Jaguar XJ6 engine recently, the engine now runs extremely well, starts like new and is now very reliable more then ever. Auto Europa was recommended by a co-worker, the shop owner Ron Mifsud did meticulous work on my engine including cleaning the entire engine compartment, and all of the engine components, every thing was painted like new, even though I don’t know much about engines I can look under the hood and see everything is clean & painted like a new car and that reassures me. Professional & great work to Ron and staff, very friendly & honest, not only was the invoice completely itemized, the price never changed. Barbara in the office called me & kept me up-dated with emails. Thank you guys for the great service. love my Jag.

Ron and his team at Auto Europa have been working on my vehicles for over 8 years and they are the best at what they do- automotive geniuses.
I have 3 older cars- a 1977 Toyota Landcruiser FJ 40 that had major mechanical problems as well as not being able to pass the California smog tests- I was going to have to sell the car out of state. I brought the vehicle to Ron who did an extensive analysis on the issues . There were many parts no longer available and other major issues. Ron devised a plan and had parts made- the car now passes the smog test as an almost zero emission vehicle and rides like it did 30 years ago without any mechanical issues.
My other car is a 1980 Datsun 280 ZX with only 46,000 original miles- still after 30 years parts wear out- Ron worked to bring everything up to date. He found things most people would never see . The car drives and handles like the day I bought it new.
My last vehicle is a 1997 Toyota 4 Runner with a 5 speed. I have had little or no trouble but after 130,000 miles it needed parts replaced before there were major breakdowns. Ron and his team have brought it back agin tot where it was when new.
I have recommended Auto Europa to friends and they say the same things.
I would never take my new, classic or older cars anywhere else.
Auto Europa is the best!

Ron Mifsud has been my mechanic for 3years. He did engine replacement on my Jaguar XJ6 ’86, and she runs like a champ. True to the Jaguar rep., there were a bunch of gremlins in the car, and Ron tackled them all. The car has run great since he finished work a year ago. I take my corvette and my wife takes her car to Ron, he does great work on American cars too. The respect I have for Ron has endured from day one. I enjoy inspecting his project cars in the shop- old roadsters and coupes. Solid work and honest man.

My 2007 Mini Cooper S engine failed last November 2009. I bought the car brand new from BMW in Concord with their service maintenance plan and I also purchased an extended warranty through Zurich. The dealership said that they would not cover the engine replacement. They quoted that I was looking at $10,000 – $15,000 out of my pocket to get it repaired, or I could trade-in my car for $5000. You can imagine how stressed out I was. Being a loyal customer, I felt that the dealership did me a great disservice by offering me no help at all. Then I found Auto Europa! The shop, the mechanics, and Ron (Owner) became my salvation. They did excellent work on my car! They were very professional, very skilled and really nice people. Ron contacted Zurich for me, and the warranty company covered almost all of the expenses (BMW said they wouldn’t). Ron helped me with all of the paperwork and administrative issues. I only paid $1,500 out of my pocket and I got my car back in excellent condition on December 30, 2009. Ron also told me how to properly maintain my Mini and he also answered all of my questions on how cars operate (I’m a chick and I do not know much about how cars work). I can always come back to the shop if ever I notice any problems, and so far, everything is running smoothly! I am really grateful for them and am lucky to have found their shop (I found them through Yelp)! Thank you again! Great job to everyone in Auto Europa!!!

Over the past 5 years I’ve had two Audi A4’s serviced by Ron and his team. They do a high quality job keeping the cars running. I never dreamed the service bills on these cars could get so large so fast! Ron has done a fantastic job talking through the repairs, what’s needed, what could be skipped, places to save money, etc.

He and his team go the extra mile on customer service. When my repair bill for one visit exceeded $5k, they waived a good portion of the labor charges. Recently, I needed all new tires. Ron called over to Wheel Works to spec out the correct tires and obtain referral pricing on them.

I strongly recommend the shop.

As a girl who drives an older Acura and knows nothing about cars, I am truly grateful that Ron and AutoEuropa are my go to car guys. Last year they fixed something minor and changed my oil – no big deal right? Except for they also fixed my brakes (minor adjustment needed) and worked within my budget. (of course, I was upfront about what I could spend).

So recently when my car overheated (I was able to drive it to my parking space, but there was smoke and steam everywhere), Ron went above and beyond to help me and fix my car right. We arranged to have it towed to his shop so I didn’t have to miss work. He diagnosed the issue (or issues) and gave me a quote. The quote was reasonable and he was timely with the service. He also went ahead and checked the entire car to make sure it was going to be safe, had it cleaned inside and out (definitely a bonus), and was able to get my oldie, but goodie, back on the road in no time. (He also offers to have his staff wash the car whenever, as long as you give them 24 hours notice).

All in all he was extremely communicative, understood where I was coming from (i.e., I have no idea but need to be safe), and did not take advantage price-wise or time wise.

I highly recommend them for minor services and major!!!

So I brought my BMW in because it was making a weird noise. I know absolutely nothing about cars, but Ron was so incredibly helpful and explained what he thought it was and what he thought it’d cost. He called me the next day to confirm it and actually said he found the part for less than he quoted me. I love this guy! Thank God for good mechanics!! He sees me every 10k miles for my oil change now and he’ll definitely be doing all of my tune ups, he knows what he’s talking about!!

Auto Europa is great. I took my ’81 380sl Mercedes here after it had been stored outside for 3 years. I didn’t actually have much faith it would ever run again and was surprised, Ron, the owner didn’t laugh at me and give me a number for a salvage yard. Somehow, Ron and his crew have made the engine run as strong as ever and got it to pass smog. He also found me a transmission for only $500!!!! Unbelievable. I strongly reccommend Auto Europa and the detailing shop downstairs.
Auto Europa is great!

Ron is so friendly and appreciative of the business. He really knows his stuff. He specializes in European cars but he does work on all vehicles and his prices are very, very competitive.

I brought my 2007 G35S in there for a 60,000 mile tune up and got the car back clean with all of the reports good to go. I got the car back same day, too!

Ron is a genius! My son’s Audi kept stalling out and he didn’t have any luck at the other two shops he took it to, but Ron was able to fix the problem right away. He’s an awesome mechanic and gives excellent customer service. I’ve been taking my Toyota to him for years! Sometimes I will come on a Thursday after work to get a last-minute oil change before a weekend getaway and he will always find the time to squeeze me in. His crew will even stay late to work on my car when I need a quick tune-up, too!
