The Spirit of Independence is Alive and Well at Fox Run Auto!

The Spirit of Independence is Alive and Well at Fox Run Auto!

Fox Run Auto is proud to be an independently owned and operated business. Today is the 4th of July, so it's a good time to reflect on what this spirit of independence means to our customers and to everyone working in our shop. Local History Michael DeFino opened Fox Run Auto back in 1994. In fact, next year we'll be celebrating our 25-year anniversary. Mike could have chose to open a franchise auto parts store or repair center, but that's not his style. He wanted to build a local business focused on the customers and the Northern Delaware community that he loves so much.

"We take great pride in what w ... read more

Jonathan was ultimately very glad with the decision as evidenced by his recent review on Google. "If you are looking for an honest, quality 'good ol' garage, this is the place," Jonathan writes. "Mike [Accursi, General Manager] explained my options due to the fact that my motor was an 'interference' and the job may not work." You see, the set-up of Jonathan's older car was awkward. The arrangement of the engine and other components in relation to the timing belt made it difficult to simply replace the belt. There was also concern that there was more damage beyond the belt that may need further inspection. We had to look for creative solutions to avo ... read more
