Ariel grew up in Panama where he learned how to repair motorcycles at the age of 11. He was taught by his father, a racer and European vehicle mechanic. His father raced a black Alfa Romeo Gilia sponsored by Coca Cola and also had a Alfa Romeo Alffeta, GTV.

Ariel has a life long passion for cars and has spent many years training to become the best at what he does. In the early 1990's he graduated from an Accounting and Commerce School in Panama and was awarded a scholarship to the best vocational school in Panama. There he learned the foundation of his trade. He completed his apprenticeship at the largest Toyota dealership in Central America and became a Toyota Technician.

Upon arriving in the United States, Ariel worked briefly at a Mazda dealership but in 2005 he had the opportunity to follow his passion for German vehicles and he accepted a position at The Collection in Coral Gables where he eventually became the team leader for Audi service. From there, he went on to work for Deel Volkswagen and Audi Pembroke Pines. Knowing he could perform affordable and accurate repairs for customers, Ariel and his wife Laura decided to open a small shop in Hialeah. Here, the customer is their number one priority.

    Most knowledgeable and reliable car repair place in Miami area!

    Last week I took my VW convertible here for what started as a window regulator repair, but the mechanic thoroughly inspected everything, gave very reasonable prices for repairs, used quality products and made sure every aspect of the vehicle was in top condition before I left.

    Diagnoses were more accurate than a previous mechanic’s for why the car wouldn’t convert, who said “I’m sure just a sensor broke”. Prices were less than those of any dealer or other car shops, and comparable to those online (I checked). The appointment to look at the car was the same day I called, and the repairs were made very quickly the next day.

    Very fair place, doesn’t try to overcharge or do careless work. Absolutely trusting only this place to keep fixing my car!

    I met Ariel one day as my VW overheated on I-75 and he stopped and came to see how he could help. He's been my mechanic ever since. My wife and i both own VW and Ariel is our guy.

    The main reason why i like Krankenwagen is because Ariel is not only competent, but he is honest. He makes it a purpose to make sure you understand what is going on in your car.

    I love German cars, and plan on getting an Audi next. I am pretty sure Ariel will be my mechanic for the long run because good and trustworthy mechanics are just hard to find...
