Flanigan Automotive Repair
He is a thief stole money and charged over 100% for parts of cars that he said would be cheaper if we went through him. Also he wouldn't give any information for his business which is a felony. Has been sued before for the same thing as well and he took over 3 months to give the car back, not even finished.

I have been taking all my vehicles (always buy used) to Mylers for over 12 years. I have never had a problem with them. I am a worry-wart and often ask them to check for this or that. Steve is patient and gives me clear answers on possible causes, and as often as not, no additional services are needed. My mind is at ease with them caring for my cars and trucks. I wouldn't go elsewhere. Jane & Ken B.

Send A Friend / Auto Care
I took my car here over a year ago because jd byrider made me. They denied a warranty and charged me 1800 to change spark plugs. 8 months later they failed and found out they broke my spark plug wires and put in used non OMG spark plugs. I had them replace a headlight that I BOUGHT and they broke the assembly.didn't tell me just taped it back together. Stay away

I find this quote from their web page laughable "We are widely known for our honest reputation and quality service". I was treated dishonestly and was ripped off! I went in for something routine and what do you know, they found something that was leaking that cost $750. I had them fix it. I was back 18 months later for another routine job, I believe it was to recharge the A/C. Guess what, they found the exact same leak for $750. I said to Steve "didn't I have this problem before and had it fixed before?". He looked up my records and sure enough, i'd had it done before. He commented that I had a good memory. I commented that $750 isn't easy to forget. He said something like "if you should choose to come back". He and I both knew that I was never coming back. And I've never been back. I now have an honest mechanic. Oh and what was supposed to happen if I didn't fix the leak never happened. and I had my new mechanic check and he found no leaks. I have to wonder if the first leak was real or fake.
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.
