Miscellaneous Auto Services

For whatever else may pose a threat to your vehicle's road performance, our knowledgeable auto specialists provide a number of other miscellaneous auto services. And because our work is guaranteed, you can rest assured that you're receiving the best workmanship possible. Let us know how we can help you! Contact us at 507-451-8678 to set up an appointment for additional quality auto services.

Our miscellaneous auto services include:

Most Extended Warranties Accepted
An extended warranty (also known as a service contract) can provide peace of mind to most car buyers. The warranty (or service contract) kicks in after the usual manufacturer warranty has expired. An extended warranty covers major breakdowns and evens out the cost of repairs. Unfortunately, not all auto repair shops accept extended warranties. At Ron's Repair Service in Owatonna, MN 55060, we accept most extended warranties. We let you use the service contract to save on auto repair costs.

After-Hours Drop Off
Sometimes auto repair needs arise long after most auto repair shops have closed (most auto repair shops close at 6 pm). With after-hours drop off services, you leave your car at the mechanics shop for repair even if the shop has closed. You simply fill out an envelope, put in your keys, and drop it in a drop box. The auto shop will only contact you when your car is ready or when they need additional information. At Ron's Repair Service, we value your convenience and that is why we offer after-hours drop off services. A completed Drop-Off Form will help the mechanic diagnose any problems. Even if we have closed, you just drop-off your vehicle at our shop and our mechanics will work on it and contact you when it is ready.

Free Loaner Car with Repairs By Appointment
Do you need wheels while your car is in an auto repair shop? To cope with your busy life while your vehicle is with a mechanic, we offer a free loaner car. A free loaner car lets you have wheels while your car is in a mechanic's shop. Ron's Repair Service is one of the few auto shops that offer free loaner cars to their customers. At Ron's Repair Service, we are ready to provide assistance and help you when your vehicle has broken down. A prearranged appointment is necessary and subject to availability.

Free Local Pickup and Delivery with Repairs By Appointment
In certain circumstances, auto shops offer pickup and delivery services. This is whereby the auto shop picks up the vehicle at your work place or home, works on it, and delivers it after it is fully repaired and serviced. This saves you time and money. The p/u and delivery service can be either free or paid for. At Ron's Repair Service, we offer free local pickup and delivery whereby we routinely pick up your car from your home or workplace. We want to make the task of having that car repaired/serviced as stress free as possible. This service is subject to appointment.

Free Local Shuttle Service with Repairs By Appointment
When you drop your car at our garage for repair and servicing, you don't always have the time to wait until we've finished servicing your car. To get your busy life going on, we offer free local shuttle services. At Ron's Repair Service in Owatonna, MN 55060, we offer free local shuttle services to our customers. This service allows you to conveniently go back to your day's routine as we work on your vehicle - you don't have to wait at the shop. This service is by appointment.

Fleet Maintenance and Repair
As a fleet owner, you have to do all it takes to keep the fleet on the road. When any vehicle is out of service, both revenue and your reputation as a reliable business are at risk. To make sure your fleet of trucks/vehicles is always on the road, partner with a professional auto shop. At Ron's Repair Service, we can manage your fleet repairs and maintenance. We make sure servicing is up to date and up to standards. We handle all aspects of fleet repairs and maintenance.

Trailer Hitches, Wiring and Tires
Although a trailer does not have an engine of its own, it does require some maintenance. The trailer needs wires to move current to the brake lights and other lights at the back. Ron's Repair Service has qualified and experienced electricians who will handle your trailer maintenance. Call us at 507-451-8678 to schedule an appointment.

Wheel Bearings
Wheel bearings are found inside of wheels, allowing the wheels to spin freely, and are connected to the brake system. They can become worn over time, causing a vibrating suspension and noisy rubbing as the car is driven. If they break completely, the vehicle will become very difficult to control and unsafe to drive. Replacement interval for wheel bearings varies greatly, but they should be checked for leaks and wear periodically. Ron's Repair Service can make sure that your bearings are in good shape and let you know if they need replacement.

Hubs, Seals, Studs, & Nuts
A wheel hub motor, also referred to as a wheel motor, is an electric motor incorporated into the wheel hub and drives it directly. You can have a safer and smoother ride today by replacing your warped and worn out wheel hubs. Let Ron's Repair Service replace your worn out hubs today.

Properly working seals provide oil and grease sealing - offering enhanced performance in a wide range of temperatures and environments. Worn out or warped seals allow external contaminants to enter the bearing unit or let lubricant escape from the unit. This ultimately leads to premature failure of the bearing unit. To keep out contamination and retain lubricant in the bearings, have the seals replaced with new ones. To have the seals replaced by experts, contact or visit Ron's Repair Service today.

Studs are the threaded fasteners that hold on the wheels of your truck. The wheel studs are permanently mounted on the wheel hub through the brake disk or brake drum. To secure the wheel, nuts (lug nuts) are fastened over the stud. Stripped wheel studs can be quite dangerous. Damaged wheel studs should be replaced with new ones immediately. To have your truck's wheel studs replaced with high quality ones, call 507-451-8678 or visit Ron's Repair Service today.

A wheel nut or lug nut is a fastener for securing a wheel on the hub. A set of lug nuts are used to secure a wheel to the threaded wheel studs (which are fixed to a wheel hub). Worn out nuts means one thing - the wheel is not fixed securely on the vehicle which puts the vehicle at the risk of rolling over. To have your truck's wheels securely fastened to the hub, contact or visit Ron's Repair Service in Owatonna, MN 55060 today.

Fuel Efficiency
The experts at Ron's Repair Service can inspect your vehicle and perform services that can help it operate at peak performance and help improve fuel efficiency and overall fuel economy. These inspections and services may include items such as:

  • Change engine oil, using the recommended grade of motor oil

  • Inspect and, if necessary, replace a clogged fuel filter
  • Adjust tire pressure to manufacturer-recommended specs
  • Inspect/clean the intake system

  • Align front suspension
  • Clean or replace dirty or malfunctioning fuel injectors
  • Inspect/replace spark plugs and spark plug wires
  • Check exhaust for clogged catalytic converter
  • Examine the exhaust gas recirculation system

Pre-Purchase Inspections
Are you planning to buy a new car? Don't take chances. Be confident about the car you are buying. Have pre-purchase inspections performed on the vehicle. Pre-purchase inspections involve examining the car's condition to ensure it is worth buying. At Ron's Repair Service, we have pre-purchase inspection experts - mechanics who will scrutinize any car, make, and model and allow you to make an informed decision. Pre-purchase inspections will definitely give you peace of mind when you buy your next used car.

Pre-Trip Inspection
A pre-trip check up can make the difference between a safe trip and one that ends in a tragedy. The inspection aims at looking for possible defects and potential mechanical problems that could cause disaster. Before embarking on a trip you should make sure your car is fully inspected for safety. You can rely on the experts at Ron's Repair Service. We have pre-trip inspection experts who are able to conduct safety inspections on any car, make, and model. Our experts are dedicated to ensuring you have a safe trip. Simply drop by or give us a call at 507-451-8678.


What Our Customers Are Saying

Friends recommended so I took our car for a oil change and tire rotation. They did a good job! Bonus is the beautiful Irish setters!


-Patty W.

Ron's has always been fair and honest, they do a great job. It's the only place I trust taking my car to.


-Jenifer S.

I have driven my car back to the dealership where I bought the car from for years which was over an hour away because I never felt I received the honest and straightforward auto service I deserved in Owatonna. Out of a real sense of urgency I gave Ron's Repair a try and I can't tell you how pleased I have been with the customer service as well as the auto repairs, maintenance and straight answers about what I really need to take care and what can wait. I highly recommend you give Ron's a chance to take care of your auto repairs needs they won't disappoint.


-Lynn S.

I was quite impressed with my first experience with Rons repair. My car just came out of warranty and I was having some issues with my A/C. Rons was able to get my car in right away and had it fixed that same day, but what really made them stand out is I had a cabin air filter in my backseat that I was going to install at some point and when I picked up my car they had informed me that they went ahead and installed that filter for me. I was not expecting that, saved me the hassle of doing it and it compelled me to give them a great review. All my service work will from now on be going to Rons!!


-Reid B.

I have been going to Ron's for over five years. I have found their service to be excellent and they never do anything that is not necessary. They are honest and do a great job. I would recommend them to anyone in my family or any of my friends. Rons Repair rocks!


-Jody S.

Ron and the crew have always been there for our family when our vehicles need attention, at times with short notice even. Great communication, honesty, and good pricing.


-Cassandra Z.

They like dogs, I like dogs. I like a working car, they make that happen above and beyond. And I even got a flower when my car was all done. What lady doesn't love that?


-Teana W.

Great service and friendly staff. Not to mention there are DOGS!!


-MN Y.

Great, (and honest), service at an awesome price! Mike and the boys at Ron's will take of you and all of your vehicles! They fit me into the schedule on short notice and have a loaner for me to use while they work. Thanks Mike!


-Wade W.

I walked in overwhelmed from a crash on the highway, from out of town and another 2 hours away from home. They looked at the car and made sure it was drivable until I could get it home for the night. He got me chocolate and water to calm my nerves and made sure I was ok to drive before I left. Would recommend his shop to anyone, wheather you’re just driving through or a local.
