Don, owner of Mountain Auto Care has always loved cars — driving them, working on them and even racing them! After spending 27 years in IT Management, he and wife Tracy had the opportunity to purchase Mountain Mechanical Auto Care in 2014 from Dave and Sharon Crom. Dave and Sharon built a quality business, with an excellent reputation for almost 30 years. When they decided to retire, they wanted to find someone they could trust to carry on the business and give their customers the same care and attention they had come to expect.

Don and Tracy are thrilled to have this opportunity and love getting to know our many wonderful customers. While they have dropped the 'Mechanical' from the name, they are still providing the same great quality and service our customers have come to rely on. 
Mountain Auto Care, Ed ASE mechanic
Ed Smith is an ASE master certified technician and he has been with the shop for 17 years. Whether cars, trucks, foreign or domestic, Ed has probably worked on it. And this business is in the family blood. Wife Liz is parts specialist at Durango Small Car and his three awesome daughters can hold their own when it comes to keeping their quads and cars running strong.
David Abbott brings 11 years of experience as an automotive technician, working at both  dealerships and independent shops.  David is a former Marine, having served 2 tours of duty in Iraq. He has his ASE and is working toward his ASE Masters. He enjoys working on 4x4's and trucks, but does it all. He keeps busy in his spare time sharing adventures with his two wonderful, energetic boys!
Dave Celommi joins us after a 30 year career at a Mercedes-Benz dealership. He is a Certified Master Mercedes Technician as well as an ASE-certified Master Technician. He is also an experienced Shop Foreman. You can find Dave spending his time between here and our sister shop, Durango Premier Auto Care, dba Durango Small Car. In his free time Dave loves to ski (he is a member of the National Ski Patrol Assoc), hike, mountain bike and rock climb with his wife and three children. Dave feels Southwest Colorado is his perfect home!

Congratulations to our long-term customer and friend Mary Perino on turning 300,000 miles on her Jeep Grand Cherokee. Mary loves her Jeep and plans to keep it as long as she can. She attributes this milestone to the fact that she has always followed the recommended maintenance service intervals and has repairs done when needed. Thanks Mary for letting Mountain Auto Care, and formerly Mountain Mechanical, be your trusted auto care specialists! Here's looking forward to celebrating 400K with you!
