My Mechanic Of Abilene
I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you and your staff for helping me last week. I had come to Texas from Illinois to take a job in the oil fields of West Texas. Eight days after starting the job the project was canceled and everyone got laid off. As I left Pecos Texas I had a flat tire. I was able to repair the tire continue my trek back to Chicago. About 16 miles west of Colorado city my alternator went out. It was 9 o'clock in the evening and I was able to get a tow truck to take me into Colorado city and deposit me at the local auto parts store. I spent the night at a local motel and in the morning was able to buy a new battery and wanted to buy a new alternator. I was informed that I would have to wait a day or two for an alternator for my vehicle as none were available anywhere close. I made the decision to try and make it to Abilene on just the battery and to see if I could find an alternator there. About 30 minutes from Abilene I was taken aback by the thought of not finding a reputable mechanic to install my alternator. So I prayed and got the idea to call a local Assemblies of God church and ask for a recommendation. The woman at New Hope Assemblies of God told me that a member of their church named Bill was the best mechanic in Abilene. I called the number she gave me and the young lady at your shop took my information and told me I was about 20 minutes outside of Abilene and she would call me right back. She informed me that she could have an alternator waiting for me when I got there and it would all be taken care of. As I arrived at your shop and filled out the information for a new customer sure enough an alternator was delivered by a NAPA representative. Within 15 minutes one of your mechanics remove my old alternator replaced it with the new one. I paid the bill and was on my way. This is been the best experience I've ever had with any mechanic in my life. I'm seriously thinking that the next time I need service done to my car I'm going to drive back to Abilene!Thank you again!Chris FoxRockford, Illinois

Lawrence Hall Mazda
Purchased our Dodge Caravan yesterday, after several weeks of shopping online and personally. Salesman, Mr. Vonn Marr, was exceptional in answering many questions over this time period (about several vehicles) and from start to finish, was never pushy; was always patient; very personable; and just a very nice gentleman to work with. LaDonna, the financial representative, was the same way in that she presented various offers but didn't try to sway me one way or the other. I did not select 5 stars for price because I wanted a little more for my trade in, but they did increase their offer a little, after the initial offer, and equally important, they did decrease the price of the vehicle we bought at the very beginning - indicating their willingness to negotiate and make a sale if at all possible. We will definitely return to Lawrence Hall when we are car shopping again.

Tips & Advices
Among the common scams pulled are needless repairs, where a garage charges you for work that isn't necessary. Another popular one is attracting customers through a cheap oil change or tire pressure check. Then, when you your car is being repaired, they give you a long list of other corrections they'd like to make, therefore boosting the total cost of your bill. The best way to combat these types of problems is getting a written estimate before work is done so you can see how much repairs are expected to cost. If the final bill is higher than the estimate projected, ask to specifically see the work. Make sure information is put in writing as well. If a problem remains, you can have proof that work was not done to your satisfaction.
For winter driving, features such as the defroster, heater and exhaust system are paramount. Look in your owner's manual for specific directions on how features should be checked and repaired. Many newer cars have a cabin air filter that can be replaced when needed, allowing warm air to continue to flow in. Also, check tires before winter driving, as they need to be at the proper pressure to perform well on snow and ice.
In the spring and summer, you want to be sure your air conditioner and cooling systems work correctly. Given the high temperatures, overheating is a common problem. Look over the system by ensuring there is enough coolant available. If it needs to be refilled, it is best to open the hood and add more to the car before it gets too warm out. Also, clean out fan ducts and other ventilation sources necessary for summertime driving.
Some fixes to your car can be done without paying a specialist. Issues like replacing oil and air filters are relatively simple, with instructions provided in the owner's manual on how to make these changes. The same goes for replacing broken windshield wipers or burnt-out headlights. Such issues should be repaired quickly to guarantee safety, but don't require a visit to a garage.
Yes. Not every type of auto repair work needs to be done by a certified mechanic. You can fix some of a vehicle's issues just by paying attention to how the automobile is running and having a basic understanding of auto repair. Look over the ways weather may impact your car and what preventative measures you can take to avoid having to take it into the shop.
