Aylmer’s Auto Allemagne celebrates its 20th anniversary
Auto Allemagne, an Aylmer automotive shop at 347 chemin Eardley, is going strong 20 years after its launch. Rune Mitchell, a mechanic at the time, started it in 1998 on Vernon Street, moving to Eardley Road in 2007.
The shop operates all year long, since cars need love and attention throughout the four seasons. “If you think your car is dying on you, Rune can do miracles,” one customer told the Bulletin. “He has the specialized tools and equipment to give your baby the love it deserves.” Auto Allemagne is equipped with VAD-PRO 901 and VAG-COM (HEX-COM+CAN) scan tools.
Mr Mitchell’s high standards require the most recent technical information – combined with his extensive experience. The shop offers repair and maintenance, as well as the toughest problem-solving for issues with Audi and Volkswagen. Focussing on only two automotive makes means clients are given a specialist’s service.
Rune Mitchell has the skill in his blood -- his passion for mechanics began by repairing bikes as a young man. His first car, a 1977 Volkswagen Rabbit, he purchased at 15.
Rune loves what he is doing, fulfilling a lifetime passion for automobiles. He entered the trade at 17, and won his interprovincial license at 22. His reputation for client satisfaction has meant growing personal success. Keeping the shop relatively small means Rune’s customers are his priority, and he values these personal connections with clients who come from all over Gatineau and Ottawa.
Most common customer comment, besides the excellent work, is “Rune’s big smile!”
