I went to Bruce in Arden Garage after my neighbor recommended him to me and found him amazingly honest and knowledgeable and I wouldn't go anywhere else after that experience.

I was referred to an Import Auto Performance by my aunt few months ago and have been with them ever since. I bought a Honda minivan and the transmission blew 30 days after. I called Val and he was able to fix it up for me. I had few other minor issues with the car and Val has helped me each time. Even on vacation, when I posted a picture of my blown tire, Val called to check on me and the car and asked if he can do anything to help me. Thank you Val for your excellent customer service and a great job that you do to maintain the "health" of my cars.

I'm a very pleased customer. I found the mechanic, Ashley Brown to be very knowledgeable, professional and courteous. My daughter's car broke down while visiting for the holidays. I called this auto repair because the website listed weekend hours. Even though it was New Years weekend and even though the mechanic welcomed a new baby into the world, he fit in the time to work on the car and had it repaired without delay.Ashley was great at keeping me updated on his findings and also on the expense to be expected. "Affordable Auto" is right. BMW's are notorious for high repair bills, but I feel certain that Ashley saved me money...as well as time. My car is running great and I've found a mechanic that I can trust for any future maintenance and repair.

Ashley is my son, so I know his history. He started his career as a mechanic working on his MoPed in junior high school. He studied auto mechanics in high school and kept our garage busy replacing transmissions and doing motor overhauls. He rented an engine lift for this. After high school he graduated from Lincoln Tech in Arlington, Texas then went to work. I've never known him to give up on a job; he studies it until he either gets it right or tells the customer why he cannot complete the job. He does his best to satisfy his customers.

while on vacation to N. Carolina, our car overheated and we were stranded for hours. After calling a few mechanics, one agreed to come out and have a look at our car. He is a true gentlemen. He arranged to have our car towed back to his shop and manage to replace our radiator and hose by the next day. Now that is great service. I highly recommend this wonderful fella, Ashley Brown to anyone who are in need of great mechanic. Thanks Ashley for making our vacation go a little bit smoother. I would definitely give AAA+ score services.

The owner does great work and he knows what he's talking about. He has great technical knowledge, experience, and ASE certification to boot. He rebuilt the engine on my '69 Ford XL and I was extremely pleased with his work.

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.
