Auto Point
I came here a while back, and he warned me about another business and I went there anyways to get it looked at (not saying names or type of work but it's obvious). He was dead on accurate. So I took his recommendation as he does not work on what I needed. I came here 6 weeks later for work done that he DOES do. I at first thought it was my inner tie rods that needed work, my friend mechanic who couldn't come into town to do it, spoke with him and clarified it was the outter tie rods that needed work done. He already gave me a quote and he also did an alignment work on my car which I requested. I brought my own part, he charged the labor which was better than I expected. When he finished he adjusted the labor cost to a cheaper price cause apparently the outter tie rod was less expensive. Honesty goes a long way with me. I have a ball joint that isn't urgent but needs to be done within a year. I will be back for this work also. He is super fast, and I am totally happy with my alignment as well. It was so fast I had time to make return for rental tool at autozone, exchange a faulty pot at bed bath and beyond, go to fed ex office (delivery), have a 4 hour detail job at Sweet Water on 441, make my 1pm appointment, and be at work by 3pm. Yes I was mad busy, so this was light at the end of my tunnel. I am a hard person to get 5* from, so this was a statement to myself. I hope this puts some ease of minds seeking a good mechanic.

I took my car in for a wheel alignment. After examining the car they discovered that the vehicle did not have the ability to adjust the camber. To properly fix that would have required an additional expensive adjustment kit. They were very good in asking about my desires. I declined the expensive kit. Nevertheless, they did for me what they could. Upon checkout, they declined any payment. Free. I was surprised and very pleased with their honesty and good service. I will continue to use them as my mechanic.

I have been going to this shop for at least the last 3 years. The owner (Rob Boop) is very accommodating and always willing to help. The mechanics are very knowledgeable and helpful no matter what the problem. They are always fast and have very reasonable prices. I highly recommend them for your automotive needs.

Russell Automotive, Inc.
I had the good fortune of being referred to Russell Automotive over a year ago when I was looking for a good repair shop near my office. The team is excellent! Service techs are great (fix it right the first time), prompt, friendly, and prices are fair. Steve and Chrissy have always treated me well.

I thought my transmission was bad. I took it in to get checked and the technician told me it was my wheel hub. I trust them. I hadn't had a problem since and the technician was very professional. I would definitely take my car back 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.
