Mobile Auto Rescue
After reading this company's reviews online, I called the owner, Lorenzo, to install a fuel pump on a 1996 crown vic. I told him we used a mobile mechanic last year to install a fuel pump on my son's car, and the gas gauge stopped working after they installed the pump. Lorenzo assured me he knew how to install a fuel pump without affecting the gas gauge. We agreed on 10:00 am,4/24/13. he was 10 minutes early, very polite and had purchased the part I needed. It took him about an hour and 15 min to installed the fuel pump. I paid him $100/pump +$100/labor. The car ran fine, unfortunately, the gas gauge stopped working and my "low fuel" light worked intermittently. I called Lorenzo back, told him the problem and he refused to accept responsibility. He said it must have been like that before he worked on the car. I called another mechanic to fix it; he said the arm got stuck, he stated it's a common problem while installing a fuel pump. It was a simple fix- it took him less than 20 minutes to correct. My gauge works perfectly now. I told Lorenzo I wanted 30% of the labor cost back I paid him, since I had to pay another mechanic to correct the gauge. He stated he would call me the following morning (4/25/13). I never heard back from him. While Lorenzo did a good job installing the pump, I can't give him 5 stars because of his lack to correct a simple problem and his refusal to accept responsibility for the mistake. (we all make them). I was not going to hold it against him; I just wanted him to leave the car in the same condition he found it in, not worse condition. If someone else has a similar problem, I would recommend, Ronnie @ (704)777-4419.

Dynamic Auto Tune
I recently moved out to North Carolina from California to attend college at Duke. I brought with me my car, a 2010 BMW 335i. Throughout the cars history I have done all the non warrantied repairs and upgrade myself and I am not quick to let someone else work on my car.After browsing the Internet I stumbled upon Dynamic Auto Tune and thought I'd give them a try installing an aftermarket intercooler as I don't have the tools or space to do it myself due to living in a dorm. They did a tremendous job and I was very pleased with the work and it only got better. I returned about 3 weeks later to get performance brake parts installed as well as a fuel pump upgrade done. They did a tremendous job and I left the shop happy but as I began to leave my car started flashing a check engine light and had low power. I returned to their shop quickly and was able to catch them before they left as it was 9:30 and the shop was closed. They stayed open for me for another hour and a half and figured out the problem which had to do with the tuner I was running on my car. The owner even bought me food while I waited and there was no extra charge for the extra labor. I will continue to bring my car to this shop as long as I live in North Carolina.

Trotter Auto Glass Plus
I shattered the rear window in my Honda Pilot and began to search online and by phone to find a local replacement service. I spoke to many glass companies including a few that did not replace rear windows and asked them for recommendations. Trotter Auto Glass came up more than once so I called Laura and she was extremely pleasant to speak with and answered all of my questions about the replacement window. So I had my insurance company contact her for the repair. 3 Hours later Mark shows up at my house and after speaking to him for a few minutes, I could tell he was very knowledgeable, had 20 years of experience and was a great guy. He took his time and did a very very thorough job and was very detailed oriented. He was very careful to ensure all of the small pieces of glass were cleaned out of the back of the car, inside the rear door and on the driveway. I have dealt with other, much larger glass companies before, but Mark and Laura of Trotter Auto Glass was exactly what I was looking for in a local, friendly repair service. I would very highly recommend them to anyone needing an auto glass repair for their friendliness, promptness and quality of service. I am a very satisfied customer.

Jos. A. Bank
Get what you pay for? Even with the deals that are offered JoS. A. Bank, I still paid for better customer service than I received here. The quality of the product is not the issue...I feel they offer a reasonable product at a reasonable price and when you first enter a store, they fall all over you to help out (obviously a product of a commission based payment plan for their sales associates) but once you have made your purchase, that's where the service ends. On 9/30, I purchased three sport coats from this location and I just today received the last coat after 4 trips and 2 phone calls that I had I had to initiate to find out the status of these jackets. When they wanted to charge me for alterations on this third jacket, I informed them I would not be willing to pay after so many trips. Manager said they have no control over that and have to charge. I'm happy to take my money to a local business and give them my dollars for the alterations then to have to deal with these guys any further. I will be taking my business elsewhere in the future and will give the same advice to all of my friends and family.

Euro Wise
If you own an Euro that is not under warranty and you take it anywhere but Eurowise you are making a massive mistake, especially if you own a bimmer. The BMW mechanic, Craig, takes service to another level, especially if you know nothing about cars. Every time I think of having to take my car to the mechanic, I cringe. These guys actually make it enjoyable. They will educate you if you take the time to listen, sometimes feed you, and give you ride to anywhere nearby! They are also located close to the light rail which is incredibly convenient. They will treat you like they know you! Not many mechanics, let alone businesses still run a company like Mike, the owner does Eurowise. Do not be stupid like me and think you are getting a deal at a mechanic you know! These are guys are a lot cheaper than their competition, and they are very on point! 110% across the board.

Innovative Imports
Just purchased a 2006 BMW 325I. I wanted to get someone honest and knowledgeable to look at my vehicle. I called around to several places and all of them wanted way more money than what I was quoted at Innovative Imports. The price Mike Sheridan gave me was more than stellar for all the work that was done to my car. And the knowledge Mike and Paul had about the vehicles was awesome! Even gave me a ride to pick up my wife's car so that I could run my errands while my car was serviced. Even offered to stay and HOUR after close of business, just to be sure that I would have my car today and not be without a car for work. Which in my opinion was above and beyond. For any of your automotive needs you can trust these guys to give you a great price and outstanding customer service. They gained my trust and business from this point on.

I usually take my car to the dealer for relies or maintenance but my check engine light came on and the car started running rough. (While up town about 18 miles from the dealer) So I took it to The Shop, they just happened to pull up as closes repair facility. I drove there (2 miles) totally afraid my car was going to stall out barely made it into the parking lot and the owner comes walking out with a smile. I explained to him what was going on and he said just have a seat inside we'll see what's going on. About 30 minutes later he tells me it's a sensor. He gave me a price and of course I called the dealer to compare. The Shop was $42.00 less!!! I am now working uptown and have found my new repair facility!!! Thank you Jon for honesty friendliness and most of all fair pricing!!!!

AAA Carolinas
AAA Albemarle Road is the only place I've ever taken my car since I started going there. It's simply I never feel like I am being taken advantage of! I mean I really felt like they look out for people and care about giving you great service. From the friendly shuttle service to the overall atmosphere it's just a good place to bring your car. After the unsettling "check engine light" came on I felt sick and vulnerable. Turns out it was multiple things lol, but those guys up there really worked with me and explained my options. Of all the things I think about bringing my car anywhere else isn't one of them. Yeah things will always go wrong with cars but if I were you I would give these guys a shot they know how to take care of people.

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.
