I'm pretty disappointed. We bought a Hundai Elantra 2012 less then a month ago and we started to hear this thump on the bottom of the car. Since we were still under their 30 day warranty we thought oh we will just call them to check it out. Well we did and they checked it out with a $25 charge ok no biggie but gave us an estimate of over $450 to fix the broken motor mounts and covers!! It's less then 30 days bought and when we mentioned the warranty she said oh that's not included. Please bring your own mechanic before purchasing I wish we would have! It stinks bc we don't have the extra money to put into it right now and we thought we were purchasing a reliable and trustworthy car. Kevin was a nice salesman and we thought yay we found a great local dealership to do business with we even recommended a few people bc they were very nice. I'm just disappointed this expensive issue came with the car. I got it looked at today by Shell garage for. Second opinion and the mechanic told me sorry they sold you this. My reccomendtion is if you purchase a car here brig your own mechanic or someone that knows about cars :( lesson learned for us but unfourtantly they lost a possible repeat customer.

Sunny Florida Cars
I had been looking for a good, used Ford F-150 for 5-6 months. I found the truck I wanted, great price, my color and all the options I wanted at Sunny Florida Cars. I called them, setup a time to come in and take it for a test drive and fell in love with it. Needless to day I bought it. Cash. Randy was a pleasure to work with. No "high pressure" closing tactics. I wanted the truck and he knew it. I got a great deal and I cannot be more pleased. I highly recommend them to anyone in need of a used car or truck. Definately the nicest used cars dealership in Bradenton. I have told my friends and family about the dealership and Randy. A welcome change to the typical used car buying experience. I wish I would have found them a few years back when I bought my son his first car. I am sure we would have had a better car if we bought it from here. A+ Dealership, A+ Facilities, A+ Staff = A+++ Experience!

5 starI went to multiple dealerships had a horrible run around. They would say "yes you're approved, come in today!" Then I would leave after spending all day with hopes up empty handed. I had my doubts as many do. Let me tell you they work for the customer. They went above and beyond. I got into what I WANTED not what they SUGGESTED I get. They did not harass me everything was my choice from beginning to end. Extremely friendly and wonderful place get your next car/truck/suv here! You will be as impressed as me! I can't say thank you enough!

Island Auto Repair
I've been using Island Auto Repair (right across from the library) for about 3 years, because they're so reliable and, I think, honest. Aaron in particular has been really helpful to me -- several times at first he did small jobs without even charging me a cent, and after that, he has gotten my car fixed up when it's had serious problems for what seems like very reasonable money. Everyone who works there is pleasant, down-to-earth, and hardworking.

Reny's Diesel & Automotive Repair
He is good at what he does and that's why he has been doing it for over 20 years. He gets the job done right the first time. If you have a diesel truck he is the one to take it to. Do not believe one bad review because that is just lies of one person that wanted the job done and not pay the labor, really!! I highly recommend Reny for all your diesel needs ��������������������

Great dealership!! Was treated more than decently by Randy (salesman) and Matt ( finance Mgr). Bought a 2002 mercedes e320 and the total buying experience was better than what I have gone through at new car dealers. Price was right and the few items requiring repair/attention after purchase were taken care of in a timely manner. Highly recommend!

Advanced Auto Repair and A/C Specialists
Without a doubt the best shop in town. Saved me a ton of money and time. The ordered my starter for my work truck the day before installing it. I stopped by the next morning before my first job and they had it installed in less then 30 minutes. They have worked on my other vehicles as well and I am always impressed with their work and prices.
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.
