Rony’s Car Pros Mission Statement:To provide the community honest Collision and Mechanical diagnoses and repair, and the quality of customer service and workmanship that instills trust and complete satisfaction.

Our History:Once upon a time…a teenage Guatemalan boy named Rony Herrera got his first mechanic job at the BMW dealer in Guatemala City, and thus began his lifelong career/passion for fixing cars. After immigrating to the U.S. he quickly developed a reputation for swiftly, accurately and compassionately fixing cars in the Culver City area.  Eventually Rony knew it was time to be the boss and run his shop as he saw fit.  With the support of his wife Rachel, he took a leap of faith…

Rony & Rachel founded Rony’s Car Pros in 1999 in Culver City where Rony had a privately established clientele.  They began with a 2 bay/800 sq. foot shop on Venice Blvd, with 1 employee. A mere 2 years later they purchased the location on the corner of Washington Place & Grand View Blvd, with 3600 sq. feet and 5 employees, which enabled them to expand their services to offer body work and paint. In the fall of 2007 they added another location, former Culver City business of 30 years Glasser’s Autobody, located behind the Helms Bakery building on Washington Blvd, which also offers mechanical as well as body work repair. With this second location, clients from both sides of Culver City, Palms/Mar Vista, Playa Vista and Marina del Rey could call Rony’s their “local mechanic”.  And in the summer of 2008 Rony & Rachel realized their long term dream of remodeling the Grand View location to a state of the art repair shop.

Throughout all of this, Rony & Rachel started their family and now have 4 beautiful children, an adorable dog, and a few grey hairs!  Rony, of course, attends to his cherished customers and their automobiles, while Rachel handles “the books” and legal matters.  They aspire to become an icon in the Culver City/Palms areas, known for excellent service quality, personalized attention, affordable prices, and honesty above all.
