Midas Auto Service Experts
I usually make my own repairs and I own an older vehicle. My muffler pipe broke off and cracked my catalytic converter pipe. Advanced Auto Parts did not carry anything that would fit my needs and sent me to Midas. I expected to be charged a lot for the parts alone. Desperate to have my loud muffler fixed, I went and they told me to bring in the vehicle. After waiting shortly in the waiting room, I was checked in. They were very busy. Soon after I was told that they were going to fix my problem at no charge. I was soooooo happy! I had such a busy work week ahead of me and it started raining out. So glad not to work in the rain under my car. They showed me the nice work they did. Put a new pipe that fit the converter to my muffler. I will remember this for life. Midas is a great place to take your vehicle for a fair price and great service. I will recommend Midas to my family and friends. This was by far my greatest experience with any automotive work shops. Thank You!

Gearheads Auto & Truck Services
Reliable Honest and Fair to LadiesI just want you all to know that I had a great experience with Tony at Gearheads today. Although, it is never fun to spend money on car repairs, Tony made me feel at ease about the situation. By that, I mean, it felt like he was telling was actually true. I felt he was being honest during the whole experience. I called Gearheads yesterday , got Tony on the phone from the start, which is nice, to deal with just one person opposed to a bunch of different jarheads at a dealership service center. Anyway, Tony seemed to know the correct procedures and solutions right off the bat. It was pretty cool. I explained what the dealership had told me was the problem, and he commented on his opinions. As it turns, out he was right, and the overall cost of the service was 40% lower than what the 'big boys' wanted at the Jeep dealership. These guys do a great job - check em out!
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.
