Randy is the most honest mechanic I have ever dealt with. He has always gone above and beyond to provide excellent service. My car was rendered totaled by two insurance companies. Of course, they did not value the car at much and we were just out of luck. We were forced to take a settlement of $2,700. Randy made all the repairs, including some minor body work and only charged us a little over $600. He knew the amount of our settlement and could have taken advantage. He has more than once cut his labor to save us cost when he knew repairs were way more than we were prepared to handle. Most recently, my engine jumped time and was pretty much gone. Though he was not eager to do it, he agreed to find and install another engine for us. We got the car back today. It runs like a new one. I am over the moon happy to have my car back and without having to finance. He is a good man and an excellent mechanic. I cannot say that enough.

For the first time in years I found a automotive shop that's honest. I was referred by other customer that too owns a BMW. Randy & his staff are great...no over pricing nor unnecessary work. He really cares about your vehicle, he can a little talkative but that's because he cares. He will not put parts on your vehicle just because you may think you what's wrong...He will diagnosis the vehicle first! So don't go in being a know it all it won't work. He charges are 1/3 the prices that BMW dealership. These guys are own a staff of 3 but they get the job done. Randy even help me repair my vehicle over phone while I did some jobs myself. They are the best & ladies he will take time to explain issues with you,so u will feel at ease.

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.
