Northgate Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram
I had to look a couple of times to be sure I was signed in to the correct dealer review page. I am stunned at the bad reviews.I went to this dealership looking for a very specific vehicle. Not only did they have what I wanted all in one vehicle, unlike other dealers, but they had a better vehicle for less than the competitors. Dustin was the sales pro who helped me, and he did so with dignity, respect toward me, professionalism better than any other I had experienced, and was patient and courteous in answering my very intense and driven questions....complete with a winning smile! I also do not believe a female must have a male with her to get the best car deal out there.......Dustin proved my beliefs to be true. I had done my homework and knew what I could get for what amount. What I didn't know is that, with Dustins help, I would come away with even more features on my vehicle for the same (actually lower) price than I had anticipated based on the information I had from Consumer Reports, etc. This grandma-ma could not be happier if I had designed the deal myself! I really loved my previous van, but I believe my new van is going to be every bit as special, and more! Thank you Dustin, for putting me into such a gorgeous van, for a great deal!I would be pleased to suggest Northgate Chrysler Dodge Jeep to anyone looking for their next vehicle. (Hint: there was a drop dead gorgeous Jeep and a head -turning Charger in the show room just waiting for some one to come take them home!)

It was a wonderful experience, our sales gentleman Flint Herold has got to be the best salesman we have ever seen! Me and my husband came in and were treated with the utmost respect. Actually we were completely surprised by how we were treated!; we came in looking at used trucks and ended up with a new 2015 F150. We have bought many cars and know that dealers typically make more money on used cars and our salesman Flint showed us options on several used trucks and finally a brand new truck. I had never considered a new truck because I thought we couldn't afford it! Flint took the time to show us the details and the new truck was almost the same overall cost as a used truck that had 68,000 miles on it. Even though Flint made less money on the new truck vs the used one, he helped us figure out which way made the most sense for us/ the best way to help us, and not just the truck that made him the most money. Besides Flint, his manager Ed made us feel at home with no pressure to do anything we didn't want to do, as well as our finance guy Dave, the technology guy Keith and two higher up managers I believe are Jason & James all made us feel like we could ask anything and get an honest answer. Thank you all! My husband really loves our new F150 and we will be recommending Flint to everyone we know and to anyone looking for a salesperson who really cares!!

JD Byrider
My name is Dave. And life has been a game of up and down for me. Long story short I needed a car and because of my bad credit it was hard to find a dealer who would help me. When I herd of j.d byrider I wasn't sure if they would help. But not only did they help THEY UNDERSTOOD the help I needed and how important I needed a car. My dealer name was jyna Brice. Jyna listen to my concern on my credit, my need of a car, and my form of payments I could afford. Not only did she help me get a car I could afford. But she also helped me get a good insurance that was affordable for me. I almost was going to pay over 4 hundred a month just for insurance. And jyna said no way. She provided me a number to a better and more affordable insurance company and now I can afford my car payments and and insurance. I thank god that my dealer was jyna Brice. She treated me like I was a person. And not just a customer. She undestood my story and did all she could in her right to help me. I will be happy doing business with j. D and if anyone is in the colrain Ohio location please be sure to see jyna Brice she took care of me and I know she will take care of you. Thank u jd byrider for another chance

Gibson's Auto Tech
I've been taking my cars to Mr. Gibson for a few years now. He's a bit out of my way since i live near downtown; every time i think it's more convenient to get service elsewhere i always end up thinking "yeah.. I should've went to Irwin Gibson..." He used to have a shop at the corner of Hamilton Avenue and Kemper Road but he had to move out of there because the rent for the lot just got too expense. (There are now gas stations at each of the other three corners, IIRC. I suppose that's the unintended result of doing good, honest work at a fair price. I've since had him service a 2008 Hyundai Sonata in his home garage a couple times where he has a car lift. I enjoyed the friendly, relaxed atmosphere even more; I wasn't so worried about "Where can i walk to around there so i have something to do while he's servicing the car...?")If you want good work done at a reasonable price you can't go wrong with Gibson Auto Tech. If he can't do the job he'll refer you as appropriate.

Ray's Automotv Services
We took our vehicles to Ray for a few years, with seemingly no problems. Then we noticed that when we took our vehicles to him, a couple of weeks later something else would happen out of the blue, requiring more repairs. This became a trend. A couple of friends we have who used him noticed the same thing. When we stopped using him, no more trend. I guess the worst thing was that he agreed to buy an old vehicle from us for a certain amount, but the moment my husband signed the title over and Ray put the title away, he said that scrap had gone down and have us $100 LESS than we had agreed upon. He wouldn't give back the title and totally ripped us off. We will never use him again. Ever.

Joe Kidd Mitsubishi
I purchased my car from Joe Kidd and have had all maintenance and service work performed by them. I have found the staff to be extremely knowledgable, profiencient and courteous. I live on the west side of Cincinnati and recently had an automobile accident. When determining where to have my automobile towed to I did not hesitate to have it towed to Joe Kidd Mitsubishi to have the repair work done. Brian has been superb in handling all aspects of ensuring that the repair work is done to my satisfaction. In the future when I need to purchase a new/used vehicle I will not hesitate to bypass all dealerships on the west side and head directly to Joe Kidd Mitsubishi.

Midas Auto Service Experts
Waaay over-priced. They did good work, but they quoted $414 over the phone and ended up charging $550 when I showed up. I called Tire Discounters to do the same job and they said it would be around $200-250 for the same brake job. I'm not complaining about their work, as that seems sound, but I will recommend that you go somewhere else if you don't want to be price-gouged. I had them recommend replacing the transmission cooler lines and they quoted me $315 for parts and labor. I just got my truck back from a local repair shop (Ryan's Automotive on North Bend Rd) who charged me $77 to replace the lines. My advice: save yourself some money and go someplace else.

Rick Schaefer's Towing
Very fast, very professional. The owner needed little information on my part and was exactly correct on his estimate of the cost and time to arrive at my location, he even suggested possible reasons why my car was inoperable. I dealt with the owner directly. He was a very skilled truck driver and backed his tow truck into a super tight spot in a full parking lot(like it was nothing, wow)This is a small business and had a much lower price compared to the other tow truck companies I had called. He was not trashy at all like you would expect a tow truck driver and was very courteous and nice. Definitely will use again if needed(I hope I wont).

Mt Carmel Truck & Auto Service
I can't say enough about how these guys helped me. I was selling my Dad's Freightliner FL60 Sportchassis after he passed away. I called these guys on a Friday just before close and explained I had a guy flying into town to buy it in Monday. They told me to bring the truck in on Monday morning, so I did. They fixed the truck and had it ready that day so I could sell it. They could have charged a premium for same day turn around, but the final bill was very very reasonable and certainly fair. Truck sold and was driven to Florida same day! Big Thank You to Mt. Carmel Truck!! They work on cars too and I highly recommend them.

Tips & Advices
Depending on the part and its overall quality, a good amount of money can be saved by purchasing aftermarket parts versus OEM parts. But aftermarket parts that are low in price might also be lower in quality and could do more harm than good to your car, or they may need to be replaced more frequently than a more expensive counterpart. This could lead to saving some money in the short term, but spending more than anticipated in the long term.
The type of tires being purchased is the most significant determinant of their price. SUV tires are more costly than average car tires. And high-performance tires are more costly than economy grade tires. On average, standard tires for an average-sized vehicle are around $100 per tire. Standard tires for an SUV are around $150 and pick-up truck tires are about $200 on average. Some dealers offer discounts if purchasing more than one tire.
Car inspections typically take about an hour. However the wait time can be longer depending on how busy the shop is. Call ahead for an appointment to avoid long wait times.
Depending on the manufacturer, certain aftermarket parts can be just as reliable as Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) parts. But one item within a vehicle, like oil filters for instance, could have multiple manufacturers and there could be inconsistencies in quality among them.
Costs of replacing a windshield can vary greatly depending on a variety of factors:
  • Vehicle make and model
  • How much of the cost insurance will cover
  • Whether the windshield installers come to your location or you bring the vehicle to them
  • Standard service costs of the windshield installers
Generally, newer and higher-end vehicles cost more to have their windshields replaced because certain manufacturers use modified or proprietary glass types.
