Tedious Repairs
Replaced broken parts on my truck with more junk parts, overcharged around $500 on overall bill, replaced my broken seat belt with a inoperable seat belt that does not fit my truck, when I left the shop my interior brake light would not turn off. When you pay over $3000 for repairs on your truck you would expect the mechanic to do a good job and pay attention to detail. I would not recommend this shop to anyone.

Payless 4 Wheel Drive
Racists!!!!! THe owner is old and rachety and wasn't blatant about his racism. Purposely got the order wrong and refused to listen to me. Worst customer service I have ever had in my entire life. Gives new meaning to the slang 'ratchet'. I will tell everybody I can possibly think of about how rude he is. I can't believe this kind of person can stay in business as long as he has. It will all catch up to him eventually andI hope I'm there when it happens.1 star because its required and there is not a negative star rating. if there were I would give it a rating of -100. We need to get people like this out of our community.
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.
