Griffin Tire Pros
Wow! Another satisfying experience! In and out quickly. They did a great job at a highly competitive cost. My car has 288,000 miles of mostly all inter city travel. It runs like new. I accredit this to routine maintenance done by Griffin. See them, like I do, for all your auto needs. You will be satisfied!

I am so upset that my radiator went out and they want me to pay again for labor on something that is still under warranty I don't think its fair...They really take advantage of women there are other women whom I spoke too that are having the same issues .. Why should I pay for something that is under warranty still ...

they do not call you back when you drop your car off - it takes them days to respond to you and you must call them. If there is an issue with a repair they will not back up their work. Sad to see a business chase away customers.

DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME! This guy does poor work and his customer service is even more poor. He is confrontational and does an awful job. He can barely put together a literate sentence, and his work is equally as bad. If you do decide to try to save some money like I did, you should line up another mechanic to fix his errors.

Clark's Garage
I had a drive shaft installed on my 2000 F150 by these guys at clarkes garage and upon further inspection they had switched my new battery with a smaller old corroded dirty battery they didn't bother to wipe it off. my diagram on the stick showing 2w and4w drive was removed,and the front end so chipped up, might have been switched,maybe the stick was switched also. The engine is skipping, I suspect they got me for a coil pack or two. I paid $300.00 for this,
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.
