THE GARAGE AUTO REPAIR
After hearing really great things about The Garage Auto Repair from several relatives and friends, I decided to give them a try. There are plenty of good things to say about this shop. My first experience with themwas a very good one . First of all, each and every employee that I dealt with was exceptionally pleasant. I initially called from the side of I-25 after my Jeep overheated. The lady who answered the phone explained the program to me and dispatched their tow truck to where I was stranded. The tow truck driver was polite and gave me a ride to the shop. My Jeep was looked at almost instantly by a mechanic. After roughly 20 minutes in their waiting room I was given an estimate. Turns out that my thermostat got stuck. While I waited, they replaced it and added new coolant. I saw my Jeep go on a 10-15 minute road test to verify that there wasn't any other issues. My entire experience with The Garage was textbook perfect. The staff was overly nice, the price was very reasonable, and the service was impressive. One other thing worth metioning is that there was no charge for the tow. I have never been so satisfied in my life. I would go a very long way to get this customer service and craftsmanship again.

THE GARAGE AUTO REPAIR
The Garage is "The "Bomb"!!! Last week my son and I were traveling across country from Nashville to L.A. My starter went out in Albuquerque around 11:00 a.m. I called Tim and he said he could get me in fairly quickly so we managed to get the car started and took it straight to the garage. This all happened on the Friday afternoon before Memorial Day weekend so I'm quite sure Tim was short handed and everyone that was working there was daydreaming of the 3 day weekend coming up! Not a problem!! They got me in, diagnosed repaired and on my way to Grand Canyon National park by 1:45 p.m. I can guarantee you that if I lived in Albuquerque or anywhere near it they would be my exclusive mechanic. I have 7 cats so I know something about mechanics and these guys are good and honest. Thanks Tim and the girls at the desk for taking such good care of us in what could have otherwise been a very bad situation.

I accidentally smashed my undercarriage on a curb and really messed up my drive shaft. I had many errands to run that day and didn't know what to do. Before panic started to settle in I asked my GPS where there was a car shop nearby and was fatefully directed to Jim’s Automotive. I was eternally grateful where I ended up because I was promptly on my way. I was afraid that I had ruined my car and needed a new drive shaft and who knows what else. Jim and his team were able to quickly take off, grind, hammer, heat and repair my car as I relaxed and gathered myself in the guest waiting area. Even the repairs were cheaper than I had presumed. They treated me like a family member in need. I will not ever forget it. Check them out at Jimsautomotive dot com.

Roc La Lu Auto Repair Shop
I went through the trouble of signing up for yelp solely to write these guys. And by rate I mean praise! We were referred to these guys on a Sunday when they weren't even open, I had text the owner, Lawrence and he said go ahead and have the car towed there. They made everything so convenient. We met Adam at the shop, and he was so professional and reassuring. True to the first impression, next day, car was done. Reasonable price, and a mountain of worries off our shoulders. I believe they deserve 6 stars on a 5 star system. All the way around, couldn't be happier. I have no idea what "Roc La Lu" means, but I'm pretty sure Spectacular is somewhere in the translation. You guys are AMAZING, thank you!!! Laura

Albuquerque Tire Inc
These gentleman were so kind to me, didn't treat me like I was a stupid woman, but with respect and kindness. They go above and beyond the call of duty to make sure their clients are safe..Little did I know that upon choosing them if I bring my car back every six months they check tires, brakes, and wear and will rotate my tires for free...yes that's right Free..Plus their tire prices are great! Thanks guys ur wonderful! My wait?? I was a walk in and they were packed, But they were polite and kept me up to date, coffee in the waiting room, magazines books, toys and books for the kids! These men are the greatest in my eyes. They were honest and upfront..and no Christmas music in August..hahahaha

American Diesel Service LLC
First off I am a general contractor. I own a 2004 Dodge Cummins 3500 dually as well as a 2004 ford power stroke 6.uh oh! Bought the ford 6.0 used with 145k on it. Shortly thereafter overheating problems. As most of you 6.0 owners already know its a poor design. Matt did the head gaskets, studs, oil/egr cooler as well as planing the heads. It wasnt cheap but it was done right. Pushing 180k and I'm sure it'll make the 300k mark. Than i took the ford in because the 4x4 wasn't working. I had failed to lock the aftermarket warn hubs in all the way. No charge! Anyone else could have sold me a new transfer case! These guys are good. Moral if the story. Buy a Dodge.

TIREWORKS Car Care Center
To whom it may concern at tireworks on ann road. ou guys did me well with the purchase but since the purchase I've been calling Mike at this store to get copy of contract that was initiatedfor the tires. Since the beginning of December 2014. All I want is access to this account either via computer or by mail.Every time I call ( I've called Mike at least 5 times requesting paperwork and he always tells me he is putting in the mail now butit never comes in the mail. I don't know what else to do other than this. Tire works need to train people better or at least correct this issue or I or my family will never purchase another thing from you.

Flash Automotive, Inc.
A couple weeks ago on July 11th, 2013 at 5pm I called into Flash Automotive to see what could be done about my charging system having problems in my 1994 Buick LeSabre. They told me to come on in even though it was just about closing time and I was about 15 minute away. Well I brought her in anyway and they checked my charging system diagnostics and let me know the battery was bad. You could have told me to come back the next day or just blown me off but you still wanted to make sure I was fit to be on the road. You installed a new battery in record time and it was a great relief to have my car back. Thanks again for great service!
Tips & Advices
Yes. New tires purchased online can often be priced lower than ones at a tire dealership. Buyers can often avoid state sales taxes and locate hard-to-find tire styles and sizes, but will still have to locate a local tire installer and pay sometimes high shipping costs.
The average cost of a set of new tires is $637, with a range of between $525-$725. In addition, installation includes mounting and balancing, alignment, and disposal of old tires.
The vehicle is raised and the old wheels are removed, then the old tires are removed from the wheels. The lug nuts, wheels, and valve stems are inspected and replaced as needed. The new tires are mounted and sealed, then inflated and balanced. The wheels are then replaced on the car. The average installation takes approximately 45 minutes.
Agencies such as the Tire Industry Association promotes tire safety through advocacy and education to the industry including: manufacture, sales, repair, service and recycling. Seek a full-service tire dealer who carries a wide variety of tire types and brands and asks about the type of driving you normally do.
  • Move your car to a safe location.
  • Turn on your car’s safety lights, apply the parking brakes and remove the hubcap if there is one.
  • Loosen the lug nuts with a lug wrench (but do not remove them), raise the vehicle with a jack and then fully remove the lugnuts.
  • Remove the flat tire and replace it with the spare tire.
  • Tighten the lug nuts by hand, lower the car and then tighten them fully with the lug wrench.
