Kelly, the service manager, went well above expected in offering me a ride back to my trailer when I needed brake service on my Dodge Ram tow vehicle. Midas finished the work quicker than I expected (and inexpensively) so Kelly came back to my travel trailer to pick me up to get my truck back! Exceptional service and professionalism.

This business ripped me off and destroyed my car and refused to repair damages to my Mustang! This business should be closed!

Beaty Auto Service
Excellent service! I absolutely trust them and would recommend them to anyone and everyone. I had a small oil leak from somewhere. American Chevrolet in Muncie said it was definitely an engine seal issue (their assessment only cost my wife $100 or so and I was not happy). I took my auto to Beaty's for a second opinion. Before they had a chance to look at it they said yep this could be the case. When I picked up my vehicle the whole deal cost me about $20 and it was completely fixed. A faulty dipstick seal. Thanks Beaty! and thanks American Chevrolet for trying to stick it to me. Gotta pay for the overhead somehow.

This place wrongfully charged me twice for u-haul trailer rental. I wouldn't recommend this place. The U-haul Headquarter was the one who gave me my refund back.

Dave's Auto Service
We've been using Daves for 8 years as we have lived in Anderson. He is always extremely fair and honest. If it costs 20 bucks, your bill will be 30 bucks. He is very thoughtful toward his customers. Great mechanic consistently, for years.

Nuce's Tire & Auto Service
On May 18, 2015, traveling on vacation, our VW camping van hit a pot hole and the front wheel started rumbling. We got a recommendation to go to Nuce’s in Anderson. At this shop, we were told the front right tire had a broken cord. I asked if the full size spare could be put on so we could drive home to Illinois. He asked if the spare was the correct load rating but said he had a new tire that would fit the van. I emphasized that I need a 102 load rated tire for this van (which is shown on the tire information in the door jam). I emphasized that I didn't want a standard 98 load tire. I asked what the load rating of his tire was. He would only repeat that it was a 'Double A' tire. I asked multiple times what the load rating of the tire was and only got 'Double A' tire. I was confused by this but since I needed a tire, I finally decided to trust him that he was selling me the correct tire and agree to have the tire put on the van. After the tire was on, we drove home and after studying how to read the tire, I see that it is the incorrect 98 load rating, not the correct tire for this camping van. The service was courteous and I assume competent, but he had not been honest with me. He has sold tires for many years and certainly knew the load rating of the tire he sold me, had intentionally not been honest about the load rating of the tire, and it is the wrong tire. Be careful of the service at this business.Jon Hanson Mahomet, Illinois

Had a water pump installed, a used tire put on, an oil change, and antifreeze added, all less than $300 and could have picked it up that same day if I didn't have to work. Very nice guy. Highly recommended.

Nice people, good prices, and no hidden/unnecessary fees. The whole process was very transparent, and Dave was totally reasonable when it came to pre-purchase inspection/repairs. Would recommend this dealer to anyone, family or friends.
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.
