I came in a few weeks ago and asked for a quote for a performance exhaust on my V6 Camaro. The owner gave me an offer that was 1/2 the cost of purchasing online. I couldn't refuse. He advised that an x- pipe and magnaflow was the way to go. My car came alive ! The response improved considerably. I just added a CAI to dampen some of the scream. And now it sounds like a jet firing up. It's hard not to laugh as Prius'move to the right. I love my new cat back exhaust and I truely appreciate your advice. My warranty is in tact and I'm Cali carb compliant.

I went in here on a Saturday right before closing time they were able to help me with an issue with my car to make it drivable so I could drive to a shop where it could be worked on . They didn't even charge me and worked on my car for a good 25 mins . Great customer service skills . I would have left it there to be worked on but it was a dealer issue .

We received an online coupon for a great price for an oil change. It was a bit difficult to get an immediate appointment, but once one was scheduled, they were ready for me when I arrived. My car was ready on time as promised. The bonus to this location, we were able to shop at Sunrise Mall while we waited!

We use Sears Auto Center for oil changes, tires, tire rotation, battery replacement and minor repairs like shocks and alignment. Make an appointment. They can take awhile to check you in, but when they are with you, they'll take the time explaining issue.

This is a great auto repair. Drove by and decided to get some work down on my car. Easy drop off and quick repairs. Very happy and will recommend to anyone needing repairs on their vehicles. Friendly and reasonable prices. Can't get any better

Went in today for a battery , not only was the manager ready to install the battery himself but did it in 10 minutes I was so suprised with his knowledge and expertise. I will be back for my routine maintenance and kicking the dealer.

They lie and when caught will alter info in the computer (such as mileage & condition). Cheaper prices yes, but the damage they do to your vehicle is not worth it. Will never go back to this shady shop!

These guys are there for you when the need arises. Staff is very helpful and friendly. Have had occasion to change out a battery or two over the years and have been very satisfied with their service.

I always take my car here for oil changes and maintenance. Honest, good, friendly staff. They never try to get me to get unnecessary work done to my car just to make a buck.

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.
