I have a 1966 Mustang Convertible. I have some trust issues with who works on the car. It was having some ignition problems and I did not have the time to trouble shoot it myself. In the past, I’ve used another mechanic on the other side of town, but it’s pretty inconvenient and I feel like they don’t really value my business. I’m just a “number” to them. I contacted Brown’s through their contact page on their website and Leslie immediately reached out via email. I communicated my concerns about who works on my car. She was understanding, gave me some background on the mechanic who would be working on my car (Justin), and suggested a date and time to bring it in. When I brought it in, Leslie was at the front desk and called Justin up front so that I could speak with him directly. I felt like they respected my fondness for my car (no matter how irrational it is). They both made me feel comfortable leaving my Mustang there to be worked on. I received a “workflow status change” email almost immediately. The information was generic, but I appreciate that there was a least some communication. They notified me late in the day that they wanted to keep the car overnight. A small inconvenience to make sure the problem was fixed properly. The next morning, I was emailed the results of their full inspection with pictures and details of what they found. When I came to pick up the car, Justin (the mechanic) was at the desk so I was able to discuss what work was done as well as a couple of things that were found during the inspection. Justin was enthusiastic when discussing my car with me. This seems like a small thing, but it matters. There are many places to get competent automotive work done. I prefer working with a company that treats me as more than just a number. My experience with Brown Automotive in Rio Rancho was excellent. I plan to take all my cars there.
Thank you for trusting us with your beautiful Ford Mustang! Glad you had a good experience and will be more than happy to help you with any vehicle you bring in the future!
