All American Auto
Ironically I do not have an American car, but after a poor experience at the BMW dealership and searching online reviews, I found All American Auto and they were willing to work on my German car. The BMW dealership said I needed new front brakes immediately (or I would DIE...at least that's the way they made me feel) & their quote for said brakes was ridiculous. Looking for a second opinion (because the brakes felt fine & weren't squeaking) I took the car to All American Auto who inspected my brakes and said I had at least one year left until I needed to replace them. They did not try to sell me anything else. One year later, I purchased the new brakes, for a reasonable price, at All American Auto and I have been going back ever since for regular maintenance. Their prices are reasonable & I trust these guys which is important because I do not know a thing about cars.

Empower Group, Inc.
My son's car was totaled while parked and we needed to get a replacement. Sometimes I am leery of smaller lots, but we saw a great Lexus on the internet located at the Empower lot. Andy was the most courteous, professional, and pleasant auto professional I have run across. He was incredibly honest and helped us during the purchase process. His primary focus was to make sure we were satisfied with the car and the deal. I could not offer a higher recommendation! Empower is first-rate and reputable, and Andy is great.

So Cal Auto
I've been a customer for about 8 years now and do not take my car anywhere else. In the past, I always had trust issues when it came to auto mechanics, but no more. Over the years, I've come to trust Harry and Andre completely. When it comes to diagnostics, they are thorough and communicate clearly. They never overcharge. They never prescribe unnecessary work. Despite their apparent work load, they always fit me in and get my car back to me quickly. I can't recommend them highly enough.

Walt's Transmission & Auto Repair
I love dealing with Walt. He's very friendly, knowledgeable and honest. I've been to other transmission shops and was quoted lower price, but when I went in the added bunch of other stuff they did not tell me about over the phone. So I went to Walt's Transmissions and the price he quoted was the final prices, which was affordable and with no surprises at the end. The job was completed when promised and my car now runs great.

Can't say enough great things about Walter and his service at auto tech. He has been our mechanic for years and is incredibly trustworthy and reliable. There have been a number of times we have taken cars in with what turned out to be very minor issues, and Walter has never tried to up-sell or convince us we needed unnecessary work. Take your autos here, you'll be in good hands.

Art's Auto Care
I do not usually write reviews but these guys really earned it! Took my car here after another shop quoted me an absurdly high price. Mr. Sarkisian took care of the problem for half what the other shop was charging me! Work was done fast and problem was taken care of quickly and properly.

You know how you can't trust a mechanic. Well, this one you can. Sal is the best, never pushes for anything extra, and I find him super honest. I even called him when I had car trouble out of town and he helped me over the phone. Quick service, and all together a great experience.

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.
