Goodyear Auto Service Center
UPDATE ON ORIGINAL REVIEW:We ended up calling the customer service for all of Goodyear and they were excellent. They did not accuse us of anything and they were very helpful. Goodyear overall deserves 5 stars in my book, however, I would caution anyone who goes to the Akron branch to really pay attention to what they do .............................................................................................................................................................................ORIGINAL REVIEW:I am so not happy with Goodyear right now. We payed for 4 new tires for Chris' car a week ago and now he has a flat tire and we apparently don't have the roadside hazard warranty. What makes me even more angry is that the sales associate is telling us both that he asked us and somehow we both denied it (which we would never do). And he is the only one between the three of us who remembers that part of the conversation? I don't think so! But apparently the other people who work there (who weren't even in the room then, mind you) also say that Chris denied it. So now on top of the ridiculous amount we paid for the tires in the first place we have to pay for half of the new one. And then get the warranty for all 4. This could have all been avoided if they had actually asked us about the warranty and then had us initial next to it when we supposedly denied it. 1. Don't look me in the face and call me a liar. 2. Goodyear will never have my business again.

Firestone Complete Auto Care
Had to post because I was flabbergasted by what I saw in the other reviews. These people have to be talking about a different place. Here are some things Fred's has done for me over the years:-took my clunker in for a new serpentine. Fred shopped around for bargain prices and called me before he installed--concerned I would pay too much to fix a beater.- was having battery issues. Fred looked at and fixed for no charge.-picked me up and driven me home - they accidentally misdiagnosed a wheel bearing issue. Fixed one wheel free of charge for the mistake.-have always been willing to "hold" checks so you're sure you can pay.Yes, it is a small family business, but these people are the nicest, most fair, honest I have ever dealt with. Don't listen to the haters, Fred's is wonderful.

Salem's Wrenchworks
Wrench works is awesome. I have been in the area for 7 years and it took me half of that to find a good mechanic. Sadly, I have some horror stories other places, so I was a little worried about trying something new. I was upfront about this with Chris, who treated me with respect and never talked down to me from the very beginning. Chris is upfront about repairs, costs, and if they can wait or not. Wrench Works treats you like family from the moment you start using them and give you terrific service for a great price. I refuse to take my cars anywhere else.

Akron Auto Parts Inc
I took my truck to a local auto mechanic who quoted the outrageous price of $850.00 for air conditioning repair. They didn't even take the A/C unit apart but were telling me 5 different things were wrong with it, and parts surrounding it. Then I took it over to Akron Auto Parts & Service and they took the A/C apart before quoting me a price of $350.00, and everything the other guy quoted was wrong with it... was not. A difference of $500.00. I recommend you take your vehicle to the honest people at Akron Auto parts & Service. You won't be sorry.

Hamad Tire Co
Charlie and Nick Hamad have provided me with excellent service the last two times I needed to replace tires on my Maxima. I do not go out of my way to make endorsments, but I am starting to realize that receiving quality service that exceeds expectation is not the norm. It is at this location, though. Therefore, I am suggesting that the next tie you decide you need new tires support this locally owned business because they will go out of their way to earn your repeat business.

L A Motors
Always Takes the time to get the job done RIGHT!!! I have been to a couple of the L.A. Motors Locations and they have all been great!! One thing I love about L.A. Motors is they take the time to get the job done right...They figure out the problem and they fix it. After they quote a price they don't try to add more parts and cost to the bill, they also stand behind their work and to a single young woman that is very important to me!!!

Salem's Wrenchworks
My old shop was not doing a satisfactory job for my money. I made an appointment the work was done and had them do an oil change. They clarified the "old" shop was not even doing an oil change properly. The work was done well at Salem's wrench works and fair prices. Chris was a true professional about everything and I will tell everyone to get all automotive work done here. I am happy to find a place that cares about the customer.
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.
