Phillips Body Shop
I am extremely unhappy with the repair of my auto. I have had it back 3 times ---have had to have my car to a repair shop for work that was underneath the car---the mechanic was off ill when my car was in the Phillips---they gave me a refund because they could not allign my car----they did min job---did not replace hood but patched it---I can see where it has been repaired----really sad they came highly recommended--perhaps they did good work in the past but NOT now---it took longer than they told me and the work was NOT the quality I was told they performed. Would not/could not recommend. Oh and now the headlight has moisture inside---never had that before---but they will not fix it--so I will have to have someone else do the work. And pay for it---should have fallen under my insurace covered repair.

Butch and his son Jordan are fantastic. Don't over charge you and give it to you straight. I had to get my engine replaced and they called around until they found one with the lowest miles for me. Gave me an estimate which ended up being lower when all was said and done. Extremely nice people and will do right by you. They will bend over backwards to help you. They will be getting all my business from now on including oil changes and brakes. Highly recommended! Engine is running perfectly. Very pleased!

Had my vehicle taken to Mr. Bowling's garage for brake service, I found Mr. Bowling to be very courteous and very knowledgeable in his diagnoses of the problem with the brake system and repair of same. I would recommend his services to anyone without hesitation. Thank you for your professional service in the repair of my vehicle.

The best shop in Ashland. Honest as they come! Prices more than reasonable. I have taken all my cars there almost exclusively for many years.

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.
