What Customers Are Saying
"I was referred to Ryan in 2007 after encountering a disappointing string of expensive and incompetent mechanics servicing my Toyota Land Cruiser. Ryan came very highly recommended by a group of knowledgeable automotive enthusiasts, so I decided to give him a try. It was the best decision I ever made regarding the care of my Land Cruiser. At our first face-to-face meeting, Ryan was friendly, accommodating, and genuinely honest. Furthermore, his hourly rates were extremely reasonable. Over the years, I have come to learn the full breadth of Ryan’s extensive automotive knowledge and his incredible array of skills. I am constantly amazed at his ability to easily service a wide array of vehicles, which certainly stems from his lifelong passion for cars. I can’t recommend Ryan strongly enough. I would implicitly trust him with any of my vehicles. You will get excellent, honest service at a fair price from a talented individual, which seems to be a rare commodity these days."

I have had OTRAMM & Ryan do some extensive work on my 1997 Land Cruiser -- things from suspension air bags to most recently the head gasket and some front axle work. The truck could not have been in more competent hands. In addition to excellent workmanship Ryan is extremely sharp, accessible and will walk you through all of your options. I am a tough, picky customer and I could not have been happier with the work the team at OTRAMM provides.
On the Road Again does all my repairs and maintenance. They recently rebuilt the engine on a Toyota pickup that I had severely abused. Always there when I need them. Thanks, guys.
