Mtn View At 153 Service Center
This dealership is unique in their approach to selling cars. We started our day at 2 or 3 other dealerships. We just couldn't feel relaxed and free to roam & take in all the inventory. The sales pressure was on and I was starting to get stressed awfully early in the morning. We stopped at the end of t International Drive at a smaller used car dealer, MTN. View @ 153. From the moment we drove on the lot it was a wonderful experience. Our sales person was Jace "Grasshopper" Flatt. He is very young but also laid back & eager to please. He introduced himself to let us know he was there but quickly backed off to let us have our look at the lot. There was a good variety of vehicle, most only a few years old. All cars were unlocked and the price with all the vehicle's information were available on each car. We were able to shop with so much more ease this way. We quickly picked out 4 cars to test drive. There was still no selling pressure even after we drove the cars. We were very surprised at the no haggle policy as I've never heard of a dealership not negotiating prices. After some research all cars were competitively prices per my Edmunds.com estimator. Some better than others & their doc fee of was a little steep. However even after everything was said & done I still got into this vehicle under Edmund's suggested dealer price and the experience was so much more enjoyable than our previous cars bought. Jace was skillfully handling multiple customers at one time and because of his genuine desire to make each customer happy nobody minded to wait a few minutes to grab his attention. They seemed to be selling quit a few cars on New's Year Eve! Thanks Jace "Grasshopper" & Mtn. View @ 153 you've made a customer for life!

Terrible service. I went there to get my catalytic converter replaced, and they told me that my car also needed a tune-up. I thought to myself, "I'll just get the tune-up later." However, what I did not know was that if I did not get the tune-up, the catalytic converter would be immediately ruined when I drove my car. Now, I am out $400 and they will not give me my money back. They were also very argumentative when I went in to talk to them about it, completely convinced they were right and that I was wrong, and would not even consider giving me a refund.Edit: The manager did call me again and she said that the company where they get the catalytic converters would replace it for free because of "good customer relationships" with Midas, but they said I would have to pay to have the catalytic converter installed (again). I felt a little like this was penny-pinching. So I am not completely satisfied with their solution, and they will definitely not get one more cent from me after this. However, I am relieved that I was at least able to get part of my money back.

Thank you Paul at Midas! We came into Chattanooga for Hotrod Power tour, unfortunately on a flatbed as our car stopped running atop of Look out Mountain Scenic Highway. Paul looked at the car and spent time discussing his thoughts and suggestions. Although we could not come up with a reason why it stopped working the day before it was working fine. He was very helpful, courteous, and I recommend him and his shop as being treated fair, honest, and charged for actual. Will definitely stop by when in Chattanooga again hopefully next time just to say hi! Car ran great all the way home will keep you posted if it is a barometric PSI problem in the mapping.

G & S Collision Center
5 Star hands down!I scratched my door really bad about a year ago and didn't get around to fixing it until recently. It started to rust and I thought it was going to be expensive and a pain for it to be fixed. I dropped off my car to John and he said he would take care of it for me. And he did! He was very helpful and courteous and had my car back to me within 2 days. I was extremely impressed because my car looked brand new! The paint job was also done really well!Nice staff, great service, and amazing outcome! I will go back to G&S next time I need body work done. Highly recommend this place!

G & S Collision Center
Having moved to a new location: G&S is located 6041 International Drive, Chattanooga TN in the area of many auto dealers off of Hwy 153 & Shallowford Rd 37421. This is the most professional autobody shop I have had occasion to use in recent years. Seeking their advice on a needed repair was both timely & wise. End result was only the needed repair was completed and as scheduled by a truly professional team. I appreciated the advice provided & they have now acquired a "life-time" customer!

Parker's Brainerd Citgo
Parker's Citgo saved the day for me! I was in Chattanooga on my way home to Murfreesboro for my son to receive an award later that day. My van unexpectedly began to have trouble. I pulled into Parker's Citgo in tears fearing I would miss seeing my son get his award. I explained the situation and the owner and mechanics worked quickly to obtain the needed parts and repair my van. Thanks to Parker's, I was able to make it to my son's award event right before it started. I can't thank Parker's Citgo enough!

Ask about any discounts before you drop car off or before the car is finished. I was told that there were discounts but I was supposed to ask before the bill was finalized in their system. I did not know that it worked like that. I will take that as a learning experience. Many businesses will discount if a customer pays cash to avoid the 2-5% service fee from a card provider. FYI. Always ask for a discount. I was not above asking but timing seems to be of importance relative to the establishment.

I have been to mechanics all over the area for years and can honestly say I have never found one that just seems as honest, fair, and throughout as these guys. They fix ONLY what needs to be done to your car (affordable and quality), and then check over your car and tell you what needs to be done LATER and they don't push a sale. They honestly feel like family.

I've been going to this Midas shop for years. The techs always take me out to my car and explain what's wrong with it and what it'll take to fix it. I've had to fix a lot on this car:( I've never had a problem with anything they've done. The female owner even gives me a ride to work while my car is being serviced. I would recommend them to anyone.
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.
