Merchant's Tire and Auto Service Center
We were traveling from NJ to the Outer Banks when we got a flat tire. AAA told me we would be towed to this Merchant's facility. Barry was so helpful and sympathetic. He had Bob look at our tire. It was fixed and we were on our way. Thank you guys! We will always remember your kindness.

If there were an option for zero stars that is what I'd give. They are TERRIBLE! If you require and deserve quality customer service, customer courtesy, professionalism and "laymen"communication regarding the service you need for your vehicle DO NOT, I REPEAT DO NOT go here. They are the absolute worst. It is very sad that you have to subject yourself to a "business" like this, a "business" who should know better when dealing with the public (their bread and butter btw). Suggestion to the owner have your employees take some customer service lessons from Chic-fil-a!!

Stan's Muffler
I grew up in this area, so I've know about Stan's as far back as I can remember. I've been using them for roughly 25 years, for everything from a regular tune up or oil change, to the rear main seal. They're honest, clearly SHOW you the problems and explain the repair, including costs, and their quotes are always on target. This is a knowledgeable, honest, and affordable small business that treats customers like family.

I have been a customer for years and spent thousands and thousands of dollars there. Since the new mechanic came on I have had several instances where the work was not done but money was collected. Dave called me up just to call me a name. I've never seen such poor customer service. The owner will not return my phone calls.

Great Bridge Muffler and Brake
Honest, friendly, and reliable. I can't recommend these folks highly enough. They have given us fantastic service for both regular maintenance and for when things surprised us (09 Civic, 12 Prius, and 05 Saturn). Timely and helpful, they have always given us realistic and reliable quotes and been straight up about when to fix and when to replace. Excellent value and good people.

Toke my car there for problems with my brakes, after being charged over 1, 400 dallors I would have throught i would never have to hear brakes again, three months later, brake problems, which they stated had nothing to do with with the first visit. Also, toke them my car because seatbelt lights on, was charged to fix, six months later light back on, was told "who knows why that light is back on" REALLY?????

Tack Auto & Deisel Repair
Tack Auto and Diesel is now my go-to shop! I have a 1993 Dodge D250 that needed overdrive repair.. Ended up being a major headache and costing me lots of money with limited return. This include 2 dealerships and on small shop. The most expensive repair, ~ $3000.00 ended up being a wrong diagnoses. In the end I had to figure it out myself...bottom line is the actual fix was about $40.00! (~$3040). Then my truck started leaking oil so I took it to another shop and after about a month they still had not found the leak (see Back Bay Diesel and Performance review). Anyway, someone at Advance Auto told me about Tack Auto and Diesel with real high recommendations. Wow what a difference in service and professionalism. Dealers are out for the new sale, replace major assemblies and don't put much effort into older truck repair. A lot of small shops are into the fast buck putting bling on trucks. Sal (Tack) is a Master Mechanic that does serious work at the highest competence. Thanks Sal, R/Fritz
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.
