Precision Auto Tech recently celebrated their fifth anniversary in business in Peru and are proud of their reputation for fixing things right the first time.
Owners Bart Ewer and Mike Dahlquist always wanted to go into business together, and after Ewer had previous mechanical experience and graduated from Indiana Wesleyan with a Business Management Degree, the two agreed to open their own shop on their own terms.
“We saw the economic trend,” Ewer explained. “We noticed that people were keeping their cars longer and fixing them out of necessity and we thought that we could fill that need.”
Ewer is a Master Automotive Technician and is licensed in Engine repair, Automatic Transmissions/ Transaxle, Manual Drive Trains and Axels, Suspension and Steering, Brakes, Electrical and Electronic Systems, Heating and Air Conditioning, and Engine Performance.
Precision Auto Tech doesn’t do tires, exhaust systems, or rebuild transmissions. It’s easier to say it that way, because they literally fix everything else on a vehicle.
With mechanics Mike Wideman and Brian Timms on staff, the group can diagnose and fix almost anything on a vehicle.
Ewer said the group works with the customers to make sure they understand what is wrong with their car and what is being done to fix the problem.
“We strive to explain all the repairs to our customer so they understand what is being fixed and why,” Ewer said. “We strive to be the best value in our industry. We are not the cheapest, but we strive to be the best. We hear horror stories of people taking their cars in to a shop two or three times to fix a simple problem. We don’t want our customers to have that experience here, so we fix it right the first time.”
Precision Auto Tech is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and they work on domestic and imported vehicles. They work on autos and trucks and do diagnostics and repairs.
While the group does not rebuild transmissions, they do replace transmissions and work in conjunction with a couple of shops for those who need rebuilds according to Ewer.
The shop is open to the public and Ewer and Dahlquist said they can be contacted at (765)472-2489, or stop by at 54 West Canal Street.
