These guys are great! They are the most legit mechanics I've met in a while. Reasonable prices and get right to work. I will be going here for all my mechanical work from now on. I pulled my truck up and he asked me what the problem was. I told him my power steering was leaking. No run around and told me it was my high pressure hose. Told me the price and said I can have it done in 45 mins. Needless to say it was 35 mins and didn't even charge me for the full hour! Bruce is awesome! I recommend him for absolutely anything!

I have been very fortunate to have found The Mechanic - I have taken 2 of my vehicles to the shop and I just can't say enough about the prompt, professional service I received! It's refreshing that as a woman to take your vehicle in and not be pressured to buy things not necessary. He was honest, upfront and car was ready when he said it would be. The price very reasonable! I highly recommend this Shop!

This is Phillip B that wrote previous review!! I wrote that review b4 I went and talked with Fred, and if I would have known he was a stand up respectful man I would have gone back to discuss issues! Instead I just wrote the review! Fred called me on his on free will after reading my review and was shocked to hear I was upset!!! He knew nothing of my issues and was willing to take a look at any issue I had with the work that was done!! And then he paid for the battery that went missing at his shop!! Cash out of his pocket, now I was over this whole problem and he called me out of the blue..... Now in my personal opinion if a business owner hears of an issue at his business and calls a stranger just to give him back what his owed, that's A STAND UP INDIVIDUAL!!! So to wrap this all up, Fred is a hell of a HONEST man!! And now that I understand he has cleared out his old crew and replaced them with excellent GM certified ppl I will not hesitate to return to FREDS!!! Thank u greatly Fred! It's nice to know there are still a few honest ppl out there!!!
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.
