Staff & Facility evoked my comments that whenever I go to Maclane's Automotive I see 'growth', i.e., additional automotive technicians. In my particular situation, repair work was accomplished by the technician's insight in identifying a leaking hose as the source of my rather than leaving it to 'exploration'. I would definitely recommend - and already have - Maclane's Automotive to ANYONE !

Maclane, Lead Technician Maclane is an ASE Master Certified Technician with over 11 years of automotive repair experience. A Berks County PA native, Maclane graduated from Wilson High School in West Lawn, PA and completed an automotive technology program at Universal Technical Institute (UTI) in Exton, PA. His career started at Croft’s Service Center in West Lawn and, after graduation, he worked for Garnet Volkswagen in Chadds Ford, PA for 9 years – achieving Volkswagen Master Technician Certification and competed in multiple national VW competitions.

Maclane prides himself on honest, high-quality automotive workmanship that customers can trust. He loves having his own auto repair shop so he can communicate directly with customers, understand their car’s needs and client’s concerns, and work to find the best solution for them. Maclane is a part of the Downingtown chapter of Professional Referral Exchange (PRE), and loves supporting local businesses and entrepreneurs. Please feel free to stop by with business cards, artwork, coupons, etc. to post in the shop. For fun, Maclane likes to brew beer at home and play the trumpet.

Additionally, he traveled the country playing with the Cadets in 2009 and is a Reading Buccaneers (go Bucs!) alum.
