I stopped at Preston Hood looking for certified pre-owned Chevrolet Equinoxes. Bill helped us out, showing us the pre-owned and new models, but with no pressure. We were planning to buy soon but were still in research mode, so he gave us his card and we headed out.Over the course of the next week, we continued our online research and visited a car sale at the mall. We met another dealership there, but their sales tactics were much different. They were friendly but did not feel sincere, did not let us get a word in edgewise, and were really pushing us to buy the new model they had on the lot, which was missing many of the features we were looking for. They also gave us false information when they were researching other Equinoxes that they could bring in from partner dealerships. After dealing with them for a couple of hours, we decided to stop looking around and go back to Preston Hood, simply because they were nicer to deal with and didn't give us that car salesman vibe. We went back over there and worked with Jake and Danny because Bill was out, and had a great experience with them as well. We felt like they had our best interest in mind and sincerely wanted to help us get what we wanted. Ended up buying new instead of pre-owned because of availability of what we were looking for at the time, and I am happy with that decision. Really glad we purchased through Preston Hood.The only thing I would complain about is we paid a lot of extra money for a car with navigation installed because somebody at Preston Hood told us it had free map upgrades for life. We didn’t find out until after buying the car that it's $200 each time you upgrade the maps (should have double-checked that before buying).

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.
