They no longer handle 20-22,00 pound, 36 foot EXPENSIVE, SENSITIVE, EASILY BROKEN class A motorhomes, but he knows all pitfalls I need to watch out for so it is not damaged further. The U joint and yoke was broken on my 1st tow by Miller Wrecking who claimed it was not their fault. They never mentioned that they take out the U joint and its yoke when undoing the driveshaft that must be undone! I did not know until today that the transmission can break on a long drive because it is not bathed in oil to cool it on the way. That it is a 20K fix if they break the fiberglass cap on the front windshield area. He knows what he is talking about and asked me to feel free to call if I needed more help. I have never seen anything better than that and it did not cost me a penny. THIS IS THE KIND OF GUY YOU LOOK FOR - HONEST, KNOWLEdGABLE, LITTLE BIT PERFECTIONIST SO EVERYTHING GOES RIGHT!!!!!I am an Occupational Therapist and take care of my patients that way too, so I love it in others when I am sure they are going to take good care of me when I am in over my head.

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.
