Strada Auto Repair is owned and operated by Jules Simon—a local Phoenixville resident who took over the business from his father over 20 years ago.
Jules’ family immigrated to the United States from Hungary in 1973, when Jules was just 9 years old. A few short years later (in 1978), his father—Jules Sr.—started Strada Auto Repair on the exact corner where it’s located today. Jules spent his childhood and early adult years shadowing his father in the shop. That’s where he developed a love for the business eventually attending ATC – Automotive Training Center to solidify his repair knowledge. It was only natural that Jules would take over the business from his father in 1997.
Jules carries on his father’s legacy founded in honesty, precision, and care. You’ll often find Jules Sr. helping out around the shop—running for parts, chatting with our technicians, or reminiscing with our customers.
This legacy and commitment to excellence is one of the many reasons Strada Auto Repair is one of the few remaining local shops to withstand the test of time for over four decades.
For the past 40+ years, Strada has been committed to providing Phoenixville and surrounding communities with quality automotive repair and maintenance, performed by skilled and trustworthy technicians. We take great pride in our work, and we’ll do whatever it takes to make sure we get to the root of your problem. But most importantly, we are honest about the work we do. We won’t ever recommend a repair that isn’t necessary, and we’ll advise the most efficient, and cost-effective approach for any repairs needed.
Whether it’s test driving your car with you, or talking you through the repair work step by step, what matters most is your experience and satisfaction.. We want you to feel informed and confident. We want you to know that you’re in the most capable hands.
