  • 5 star review  We have had different work done at Don & Sons over the years. They do good work and take care with my vehicle. I have always appreciated their customer service and today it was exceptional. Travis took the time to help a frazzled person with a small job. Thank you so much!

    5 star review  I'd been having suspension/handling issues for months and even after new suspension put on, the problem still persisted. I'd been to numerous mechanics in Ames for several months to troubleshoot the issue to no avail. I went to Don and Sons for some much needed assistance. Todd Martin took the time to test drive my vehicle and identify the issue I had been having. He and his team put my car up on the hoist and found mud caked up and into my tires, cleaned that all up, then took my car to Jeff at Trickle's for further analysis. The mechanic at Trickle's finally has a diagnosis for me...finally! When I spoke with Todd after I spoke with the mechanic at Trickle's, he told me I didn't owe them anything but a good plug on a Google review. Todd and Don and Son's went above and beyond to help me and get me headed in the right direction to solve a months long problem. And after they did all that, they wouldn't take any payment from me when I offered. Count on not only your much earned glowing Google review but that case of beer is coming for your shop guys! I can't thank Todd Martin and the team at Don and Sons for their courtesy, time, and efforts to sincerely help me. Class act all around and I'll let anyone know about what a great group they are. THANK YOU TODD and the shop guys at Don and Sons! YOU ROCK!

  • 5 star review  I was in an accident that was a bit complicated insurance wise (45% my fault, 55% the other party) and Don & Sons handled all the back end stuff with State Farm. I really appreciated it! The staff was friendly and even stayed past 5 so I could pick my car up when it was finished.

  • 5 star review  Don & Sons did a thorough, professional job on my car, and got me back on the road quicker than I expected. It's a load off my mind to have them taking care of my car because I know there is nothing to worry about when it's in their hands.

    5 star review  Had my tail light smashed and bumper brackets destroyed. They fit me in on a full day, did a bit of work whenever they had the chance, and got it back to me in half the time than they anticipated. The cost was reasonable and the staff members were all friendly and helpful.

    5 star review  My repair of my 2016 Chrysler Town & Country back door & glass replacement looks great. Todd & Carrie were patient & kind as my insurance was slow approving repairs via e-mails back & forth not in person. I stopped @ shop daily or called in person almost daily for 2 weeks till work completed. Van was detailed beautifully when I picked it up. Not that nice since brand new in 2016. Would recommend Don & Sons for sure. Thank you Marsha

  • 5 star review  I took my car to Don & Sons after a delivery truck backed into my car while it was sitting in the parking lot at work. They were able to schedule my repairs within a week and the repair and paint job was done in 5 days. My car looks as good as it did when it was brand new! The staff was very courteous and professional and they even did an auto detailing job on my car. I highly recommend Don & Sons for any type of auto paint repair work.

    5 star review  When our car was rear ended Don and Sons worked hard to get the right parts and the right fix. Johnny was personable and helpful. Talking with him made me feel that he understood and really worked to fix everything correctly. Highest regards to his talent and customer service. Also to Carrie for her business support.

  • 5 star review  We are thrilled with Don and Sons. Just got our Tahoe back after someone had backed into it and it looks like it was driven right off the dealership parking lot! It looks amazing and they even went above and beyond and cleaned the inside. So thankful for them getting us in fast, giving us a loaner that was suitable for our family, and professional care! Definitely will be using Don and Sons again if we are ever in another fender bender!

    5 star review  Did a great job on my Jeep. The repair was done timely and they really did a nice job! They even washed and cleaned out my vehicle. Left their lot feeling terrific! My dad used them for his cars and our family is still using them. My daughter took her van there a few weeks back and had terrific service too!
