Mark's Auto Repair
A MUST READ, Please take the time to read this experience with this auto repair shop; this is absolutely worth your time. My Daughter and son in-law just moved to Texas from Florida and just got settled in an apartment in Conroe. The move for them and finding a job wasn’t easy and a financial nightmare. My wife receives a frantic call telling her that they were stuck outside a Wal-Mart with their 2007 Honda accord that would not start 10 miles from their apartment. The events from here I could easily turn into a novel because there was enough drama to do so but I will spare you. They had NO family, no help from the local church, (boy that’s a real witness), their recommendation wanted over $ 900 dollars to repair the car after charging them $80 for towing and another $40. for a diagnostic fee which they already had to pay for. I’m her Dad in my 60’s I live in Florida and I usually take care of any car issues for them because neither of them have a clue when it comes to auto repair. I thought to myself that there must be an honest auto repair somewhere in the area that could help them. I got on the Internet and looked up auto repair Conroe Texas. There were a bunch but one caught my eye. Marks Auto Repair. I have a brother in Philadelphia whose name is Mark and he has an auto repair also. So, I called Mark around noon (my time) and explained my dilemma and he told me that he would take care of my daughter. I am shortening this story up to save space here is the outcome; Mark had her car fixed in that afternoon and up and running for under $140.dollars. He was honest and fair and did exactly what needed to be done. Talking with mark on the phone I knew he was an honest man up front. I paid the bill with my master card over the phone with complete comfort and thanks. Thank you Mark!!! I will put my name to this testimony and I Give this Auto repair shop the highest rating, and his shop should be at the top of the list. Lawrence Stopyra Jacksonville florida Email lkstop@comcast.net

NTB National Tire & Battery
I do not recommend this place AT ALL for anyone. I went up there two weeks after I bought my tires from them because I had a nail in my tire. The lady at the desk looked at my tire and said that I had to purchase a new tire because it was on the side wall. I suggested to her that the nail wasn't that close to the wall and could be patched, but she told me it couldn't. She told me I could either buy a new tire or purchase the road hazard for $150, so I purchased the road hazard and scheduled my appointment. When I came in for my appointment, she told me they did not have my tire size in stock and that I had to go to the one in Magnolia. So I rescheduled a new appointment in Magnolia and went there the next day. Come to find out. I did NOT need a new tire, they patched it up. The manager told me that he doesn't know what they have going on up there, but I should just come to them. Crazy smh.

I have used Mark for over 15 years! If you need an honest, fair priced mechanic you can trust, please give Mark's Auto Repair a chance. He has kept my 1997 Chevy truck running beautifully with 200,000 miles on it. This is a guy who will not take advantage of you or your inexperience with repairs. He is a mechanic your dad would send you to if you were a single female and needed a job well done. I was referred to him by another single female and have referred friends and family to him who have never had a complaint about his work or prices.Call him if you need some work done or a 2nd opinion. He will tell you what he can do or not do and what the problem really is. He will explain the answers to your "stupid questions" patiently in terms you can understand, lol.

Milstead Car Care of Conroe
I went to Milstead Car Care, for an oil change and tire rotation, after a referral from friend. I got there at 8:00 am on a Saturday, they were able to get me in and out in less than 45 minutes. Everyone was very professional and polite. They checked my car over from top to bottom, and much to my surprise, said it all checked out just fine. They didn't try to pitch any other services that weren't needed. Being a woman, it was very refreshing to go in for a particular service and being able to leave without feeling like I had just be taken advantage of. I would highly recommend Milstead Car Care.

Was told by NTB that if I didn't get some repairs that were going to cost $1500, my tires could fall off at any moment while I was driving and I would probably have a horrible accident. Went to Mark's for a second opinion (he had repaired my a/c for very reasonable price before) and he took a look. Said nothing was wrong and they were just trying to scare me into spending money on things I didn't need to. He is honest, affordable and speedy. I will be a customer for life!

I went there because another shop had told me I needed to have repairs on my Toyota Corolla that they said would cost $300. Mark and his employee both looked for the 2 leaks and found none. If they had wanted to, they could have said I needed the repairs and charged me $300 for them but they were told me the truth!!!!! Going there tomorrow to get a wheel alignment!

For the hands free wash, there are 3 options: $8, $10 or $12. Select the $10 wash - its the best deal. You can also get your car detailed there but of course the cost is more. Finally, there is also a very good service center on site to get your oil changed or other service needs taken care of. Been using them for years with no problems.
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.
