Columbia Auto Collision Center
excellent customer service and 100% FOR the customer. Not only did this mechanic fix the main issue with my car but they also covered many other issues affecting the running of my car that I knew nothing about even after visiting multiple other mechanics . They are more concerned with your well being and quality service than a quick buck. Very friendly and good hearted people and they are sure to empathize and help for your specific situation. Even after extra service was needed they charged me less than my car dealership . You can not go wrong choosing Columbia auto collision. They have now gained a permanent customer !

My car looks good as new! And I appreciate that it was returned to me with the interior thoroughly cleaned, the way shops used to do. Eddie and everyone at Columbia Collision provide friendly and professional service. I highly recommend them.

I brought my car in to have a motor mount replaced. I specifically requested an OEM mount because, in my opinion, they are superior to aftermarket. I came back a few months later, and in the course of them inspecting my other motor mounts, I discovered they had replaced the top front engine mount instead of the right side engine mount. That's a problem because the mount they actually replaced should've cost about $150-60; I paid $245. I verified my $150-160 price with two local Toyota dealers and another mechanic shop. I presented my research to Columbia Auto. First, they told me it was more expensive because they sourced their part from Anchor which is an aftermarket parts distributor. So despite my request, they used an aftermarket part (a MORE expensive one to boot!). I asked to talk to the owner because I really thought they'd made an honest mistake and would be happy to remedy it (or at the very least acknowledge they shouldn't have charged so much/used an aftermarket part). I was shocked by the owner's response. He accused me of being a scam artist and advised that I should call Toyota for manufacturing a crappy car instead of complaining to him.

Great service from friendly people. He deliberately under promised and over delivered to ensure I was happy, and also cut me a very good deal by both discounts and doing extra work he didn't even charge for. Would definitely return there in the future.

TNT Auto Repair & Towing Service
I have been going to TNT since 2002. Every time that I go I feel good about the work that is done on my car. Because George takes the time to review every thing from the beginning to the end of the car repair process. Answering all my question big and small.

This is a new shop that is specializing in cars that others are afraid of, or that you cannot afford to care for out of warranty at the dealer. Their list is Mercedes, Lexus, Acura, and others. As the name implies they recently left dealerships and have started their own shop. The shop is recently remodeled and is very good sized. They seem to have a bid investment in the latest technology to get the work done right.I was directed to them by Mr. Tire who was afraid of touching my Mercedes for even the simplest of know what I'm saying.Met the front guy and he took the car for a drive with me to see what was happening. They pulled it in to the rack while I waited to make a diagnosis. Bottomline, I did not pick up any distrust that these guys were not ready willing and able to help and to do so with full disclosure and honesty. Since they don't have many years of operation under their belt, they seem to be more worried about paying their rent then killing me for their profit. Because of their new operations, up to date shop and knowledge base, I highly recommend you stop in to see what they can do for you. It may be a refreshing change of pace from what you normally have to go through with a high end car.

Merchant's Tire and Auto Service Center
"Called for an appointment last week 5/29/2014 to replace a standard size typical tire, was told the tire would be available on Friday. Received a call from customer service saying that the tire would be available on Monday 6/2 and rescheduled the appointment. After waiting over an hour at the store, was told the tire was not on the delivery truck and should be available Wednesday 6/4. Called today, still not available ???? What gives??? It should arrive Friday? Havent I heard this before? Who is asleep at the wheel. Do yourself a favor and Take your Business Elsewhere where the customer is appreciated."

The frot bumper and fender on my Honda accord was damaged by a co-worker of my wife. The co-worker do not want to call the insurance. Eddie worked with us and lower the price for the repaire. Columbia auto collision completed my vehicle's repair job on time and exceeded my expectations.I am a very satisfied customer and would definitely go back for any future auto body work/services. Also would highly recommend to anyone who is looking for a auto body shop that does an excellent job. They got BBB A+ that why we went to Columbia auto collision center first place.Ting from Ellicott City MD
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.
