My husband was told to bring his car to this place today at 6pm. They told him this last week Thursday. When he showed up they turned him away because they close at 6. Then why would he be told to come at 6 if they were closing? We could have gone somewhere else over the weekend and now we are still without a car. Thanks a lot.

Super nice guys...love Carl. They worked very hard to get my Cadillac 's problem fixed. This car is horrible and they were very sweet about getting it right. Fixing cars is frustrating and they were all very professional and clear about what they were doing. I'm sure I'll be back someday given that my SRX is horrible!

My car sat at his shop for weeks without him touching it after I came to get it giving up on him actually ever starting the work I found my car buried under snow in a ditch which he then pulled out by the tire with a chain destroying my inner tie rod end and then when I talk to him about resolving the problem he threatened my family.

Wow, don't really know what to say about 'sumojoe's' review of this business. At worst it's slander, at best it's fantasy. These guys are great and very honest. I've lived in the Cedar Springs area since 1998 and used every auto repair shop there is. They've all failed me in one way or another. Carl (the owner) is straight forward, professional and very flexible. I drive an older Buick Regal that's had various issues and he's always been extremely affordable in all the work I've had done on it. (It's the 6th Regal I've owned, so I know the car inside and out.) I teach, so my schedule is very full. The fact they are open 7 days a weeks is a god send. Can't recommend them enough.
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.
