"Darin Damelio has my highest respect as a business owner and as a person. My wife and I were driving our 1999 Lexus RX 300 to Austin, TX to deliver it to our son over the Thanksgiving holiday when it dropped its transmission just outside of Raton, NM. We had it towed to A-1 Automatics, rented a car, and continued to Austin. Over the course of a couple of weeks I communicated with Darin about what to do with the vehicle. Darin researched new and used parts and quoted me a price. I checked with my long time mechanic in Colorado Springs and he affirmed that the price Darin quoted was very reasonable. Eventually, we decided our best option was to sell the car to Darin, and in our negotiations he was not only fair but also very pleasant, even displaying a good sense of humor. The integrity he has, especially considering how he could have easily taken advantage of the situation, was most impressive. Interactions involving automobile repair can be difficult, and it was our good fortune to have met Darin Damelio. I could not recommend anyone more highly."

"The towing service for my Porsche was impeccable and the repairs were done very quickly. I would highly recommend this business."

"One of the best experiences I've ever had in driving for over 50 years. Costs very reasonable, fast, friendly and knowledgeable!! I was entirely happy with the whole thing. Fixed and back on the road in 2 hrs, alternator went out. Darrin is the best anywhere in the area! Thanks again!!!!"
