Helming's Auto Repair
Mike Reelfs

Auto Repair

Owner and master technician, Mike has been fixing things since he was a kid. One of his first jobs as a mechanic was for Vintage Racing, a specialty auto repair shop where he worked on Ferraris, Lotuses and Lamborghinis. Mike worked at several auto shops in the area before coming to Helming’s Auto Repair in 1990. When Bob Helming announced his retirement in 2001, he offered Mike and his wife, Leane, the opportunity to purchase the business. Their commitment to continue to operate the business with excellence, honesty, and integrity is one of the reasons they are so highly rated by many websites, including Consumer Reports and Click and Clack the Car Guys.

    This is where I take my MR2 Spyder for tune-up, repair and oil change. Very friendly and honest staff. Leane is the best in scheduling and making sure my car is taken care of. Mike and Don is the experts behind the scene. Very impressed by their work, quality and speed. Highly recommended!

    Way overdue to praise Mike Reelfs and his crew for their outstanding work on my cars for the past 15+ years - yesterday they saved me $3,250!!!!!!!! No kidding!! The dealer told me that our 2010 Prius had a leaking timing chain cover and it would be $3500 to fix because the engine would have to be moved. I brought it to my trusted place, Helmings, for a second opinion and not only was the leak in a completely different spot, but it was minor and able to be repaired for under $250! If you ever find a shop like this you have got to shout their praises from the rooftops! Highly, HIGHLY recommend!
