Rodney Bitgood started Cromwell Automotive in April 1999. He has 20-years plus of experience repairing automobiles. Rodney is the grandson of Dr. George Bitgood, A very well known Veterinarian in Middletown, CT for many years. While animals were George Bitgood's first love-his second love was automobiles- of which he had a very exclusive collection of Mercedes Benz cars-some of which were very rare. While Rodney loves animals as well, his first love is the automobile- of which his grandfather passed on to him.
Since 1999 Cromwell Automotive has grown from a one-man operation to an 8-person service team and growing still. We have moved in to our new, larger facility at 263 Main St. and have a large selection of quality used cars. We are a complete automotive repair facility; servicing "all makes, all models". We do oil changes to major engine overhauls and everything in between. We are both a NAPA Autocare Service Center and an A/C Delco Independent Service Center, which means we are completely supported from A/C Delco not just with their parts but also with up-to-date training in automotive electrical systems, engine performance, emissions, air conditioning, brakes, and diagnostic equipment.
We don't just repair cars here we build and race our own racecar's; we have a 1986 Z-28 which we race in NMCA sanctioned events and numerous other events on the eastern seaboard of the nation.
I take all of my families vehicles to Cromwell Automotive. Exceptional customer service, quality technicians and very fair pricing. So glad they are here for us over the many years of service that we have had them as our go to place of business. I highly recommend this automotive facility. You can’t find a better place to go for your vehicles regardless of the manufacture or price range.
