Michael Rucker has been repairing cars since he was old enough to trade in his rattle for a wrench. He grew up around vehicles and went to trade school soon after graduating from high school. After working for numerous dealerships, Rucker decided to go it alone by purchasing A Auto Haus-Barron Automotive, a family-run establishment that had been around since 1985. Today, he calls upon more than two decades of experience in the auto industry and adds a personal touch to services that range from maintenance and smog checks to major engine repair. Whether the vehicle is American, Japanese, German, or a rocket-powered bumper car, Rucker is likely to know his way around it.

The team also knows its way around the engines of Fords, Porsches, Volkswagens, and more than 25 other foreign and domestic makes. They put their knowledge to work performing California smog and emissions testing, exhaust-system and electrical repairs, and routine engine maintenance. The shop maintains a user-friendly vibe, encouraging potential patrons to drop in with questions about their limping or coughing automobiles.
