About Wrona's


John Wrona founded Wrona's Quality Auto Repair and began servicing vehicles on the central coast in 1992. An American Service Excellence (ASE) Awarded and Certified Factory Technician, John worked for Ford Motor Company for fifteen years prior to opening the shop. When John set out on his own he immediately became the "go to independent" car repair shop for San Luis Obispo area Ford and Lincoln-Mercury owners. Through dedication and hard work he built a successful business with a solid reputation in the community.

Wrona's continues to be the "go to independent shop specializing in honesty and integrity". John "Wrona trained" three additional technicians and a service manager. All of them are ASE Trained and Certified to repair American, Asian, and European automobiles.

In 2008 Wrona's Quality Auto Repair was purchased by John and Christine Kimball. John was born and raised in San Luis Obispo. Growing up in the automobile business, his grandfather and father have owned and operated local new and used car dealerships in San Luis Obispo for more that fifty years. John recently retired from the United States Air Force, a 22 year veteran of aircraft maintenance, where he held the positions of technician, supervisor, and superintendent. He has worked in the automotive repair industry since he left the Air Force. Those same core values that made John Wrona's original shop successful will be carried on under John Kimball's leadership. John Wrona's son Joel has been the Service Manager for the past three years and will continue to organize and supervise the shop.

Philosophy of Client Care


This word is the foundation of our philosophy. We believe that we must provide more than a service to our customers. We must provide value; the benefits you receive from our service must be greater that the cost you incur. Whether defined in terms of money, time, or peace of mind. Regardless, our commitment is to purely benefit our customer's bottom line.


In every way. We believe that our customers deserve the very best in service, and our professionals strive to always place quality at the threshold of importance. Not only in servicing automobiles, but also in the way we contribute to our community and to our profession. While we hope to grow Wrona's Quality Auto Repair, our goal is to never lose our local identity and the person relationships that have been built with our customers. They are truly the foundation of our business.
