Owner of Jacob’s Autorama
My love of cars (actually, anything electrical or mechanical) dates back to when I was a teenager. For fun, I would take everything apart, learn how it worked, and put it back together. In my hometown of Netanya, Israel, family and friends would call on me to fix anything from radios and bicycles to washing machines.
At 18, I joined the army, where I served as a Tank Mechanic for 5 years. After my military service, I moved to Suriname, South America, where I serviced and built trucks, heavy equipment, boats and factory machinery at VABI, a concrete factory. I also built up and ran the Service and Parts Departments of Hilly’s Autorama, the largest Car Dealership in Suriname.
Fast forward to 1987 in Rockville, Maryland, where my wife, Dorothy, and I opened our car repair shop. Today, I still wake up every morning looking forward to doing what I love. My team of mechanics shares my passion for cars and satisfied customers make our day! We not only repair your car, but make sure you are safe and comfortable on the road with peace of mind.
We are conveniently located a half block from the Rockville Metro station. If you can’t get to your destination by Metro, we will gladly get you to where you need to be and pick you up when your car is ready.
What Sets Us Apart?
We love what we do. We are proud of our reputation, our place in the community and the business we have established, but here’s what really sets us apart:
- We have the latest diagnostic equipment and keep up with new technology by attending continuation training at least 4 times a year.
- We use the same top-of-the-line parts, tools and equipment the Dealerships do.
- Our prices are highly competitive with Dealerships and you won’t sacrifice level of service.
- We often use innovative problem-solving approaches that Dealerships cannot.
- Our work is guaranteed nation-wide for 2 years or 24,000 miles, whichever comes first.
When I’m not at the Shop, I’m having fun with my 3 children and 6 grandkids. I’m the family’s handyman and enjoy teaching the clan how to keep up their houses. I also enjoy traveling with my lovely wife to explore the wonders of this world. Oh and I can’t forget to tell you about my pet frog, who is 15 years old.
