I have had nothing but positive experiences at both Jason Hensley Goodyear stores, although I most often frequent the one on Salem and Otterbein. Two years ago the cover on my catalytic converter came off while I was traveling in Virginia. I took my van to a shop there and was told it would be $1500 to replace my exhaust system, and that was the only solution. I persuaded them to patch it until I could get home. Shortly after I got home, my van started losing power and got loud. I made an appointment and took it to Goodyear, expecting to spend at least $1500. Want to guess what I actually paid? $110. And that was after I told the owner I expected to pay $1500. He could have sold me an entire exhaust system and I would never have known the difference.Today I went in for a new muffler. The estimate was around $250 for just the muffler or $400 for the entire system, depending on how much rust was under there. My van is a 2002 with over 150,000 miles on it. I wasn't surprised it needed some TLC. What did surprise me was that Mike and Darrell decided they the muffler was in pretty good condition and they could patch it instead. If the patch holds, I'll be good for a couple of years. If it doesn't hold, they'll deduct the cost of the patch and replace the muffler like we originally expected. Today instead of $250, I paid $62.I have several more stories about expecting to spend more and walking away having spent much less at Jason's stores. These guys give honest, friendly, competent service. I wouldn't take my elderly van any place else.

Lexus Of Dayton
My initial contact was with Matt Karns, Internet Sales Manager. He was very responsive and helpful online. Upon arrival, he referred me to Mike Holbrook, Sales Consultant. He was very patient and understanding. During our time at the pre-owned store, my companion and I were repeatedly offered water and/or soft drinks while we were waiting for document preparation and vehicle preparation. As I was preparing to get into the pre-owned Lexus i bought and it drive away, I noticed that even though my companion had the radio on, the power antenna was not up more than an inch or two.The dealership owner, John Higgins, was standing right there and acknowledged that the antenna drive ribbon was broken. He had me follow him to the new car sales/service location, where he instructed the staff to replace the broken part immediately. While my companion and I waited, we were again asked a few times if we needed anything or wanted beverages. When my companion joked that he wanted a rum and coke, we were given helpful driving directions to a good nearby eatery and tavern that would be on our way home (a four hour drive). At both locations, everybody with whom we had contact was professional and courteous. I saw none of behavior that seems commonplace at auto sales facilities -- men standing around, right outside the door, smoking cigarettes. The facilities at both Lexus of Dayton locations were top notch -- to the extent that I regret residing too far away to make L.O.D. my primary place for maintenance.

All Tune and Lube
I can't say enough about these guys. I've been to 3 different shops, and they all told me my temperature sensor was bad. I had one shop replace the sensor, and still an engine light! So I tried All Tune and Lube, based on a friend's recommendation. Brad looked at my car and told me the sensor wasn't the problem. I asked him why, because the code was for the temperature sensor. That's when he explained "cause and effect." lol He took the time to explain to me that just because a code is thrown, it doesn't mean the sensor is bad... it just means the sensor is probably doing it's job alerting of another problem. In short... it was a leaking thermostat, that he said was allowing cold antifreeze to get into my motor at warmup. I'm not sure what all that means, but all I know is NO MORE ENGINE LIGHT!! Brad is right, there are many "parts changers," and there are very few true "Troubleshooters," who fix the problem and not just change the broken part. Had I brought it to them first, I could have saved a ton... replacing the thermostat was MUCH cheaper than replacing the sensor... that didn't need replaced in the first place. I highly recommend these guys... Brad has really earned my trust, and that's hard to do. Doesn't hurt that their prices are a RELIEF compared to others. They are very sweet people.

Its interesting that you say lemon cars when you bought a used car, why did you not follow the buyer beware process and check out the car before you bought it. I have bought from them and I have had no problems. I took my mechanic with me to check out the car, which they allow you to do; so if you did not check the car before you bought it then that's on you, you were buying a USED car, No one can force you into anything, you have to make that decision on your own, everyone as a CHOICE! Any used car you buy you buy it as is. You signed it, so don't be disgruntled because you did not do your homework before you purchased. They were helpful and kind. The owner helped me and listened and they did not over charge me as some of the other dealers I went to before going to them tried to do.

AutoSpot recently repaired my van which was involved in a front end collision. I cannot say enough GREAT things about the way that I was treated by Dave and his entire staff. They exceeded all of my expectations, going above and beyond to ensure that my needs were being met.My van was finished an entire week earlier than originally promised and I was kept informed during the entire repair process.Upon pickup, my van was completely detailed inside and out and looked brand new!I would HIGHLY recommend AutoSpot Collision to anyone in need of car repair and excellent customer service!!

All Tune and Lube
This shop is absolutely wonderful and the mechanics definitely know what they are doing. I had multiple unnecessary repairs at other shops before being referred to ATL. ATL properly diagnosed my car and saved me from many more unnecessary repairs. I get all of my service there now, and they work on foreign cars for way less than the dealerships. They are also conveniently downtown, and I can leave my car during the day and pick it up after work. Refer your family and friends, they are the best!!

Brownies Independent Transmission
I took my vechicle in for them look at and they told me that I had a problem. I was worried at first because I have never had a transmission problem but they were awesome. It did not cost me all that much and I felt comfortable with them. They have been around for a long time so I figured they were not going any time soon. People you have no idea call them and find out. If you like personal service from people that care call.

They've worked on several cars of mine and have always been there for the random parts needed when I'm doing my own work. They specialize in euro but will work on anything and are competitive when it comes to price. They get work done in a timely fashion and keep in good contact with the customer with updates on how the repairs are doing. Would take anything on wheels there to get looked at.
Tips & Advices
Salvage yards will have different policies regarding warranties, but, in most instances, the parts you find will be covered. Some salvage yards will offer warranties of anywhere from 90 days to six months, and may even offer the option for extended coverage.
After you've successfully found a part or multiple components, take everything up to the clerk. Inform them of what you have and pay. Avoid lying about what you have as a way to pay less. You will potentially be banned if you're found lying. You-pick salvage yards will display the prices for categories of parts. Prices may fluctuate depending on the demand. Harder-to-find items could carry a higher price tag than a brand-new one. If you are salvaging for auto parts, you might see items that are difficult to find and be able to sell them for a profit. Doing so can offset the cost of the price you're paying for the parts you personally need.
It is in your interest to call the salvage yard before arriving to see if they sell smaller components individually, because some yards do not. Some owners choose to not sell small components for financial reasons.  If salvage lots come across a door without the handle, they will have to pay extra to get the handle and attach it to the entire assembly. It is therefore cost-effective for salvage lots to sell entire assemblies.
When rummaging through a car or walking around the lot, stay aware of your surroundings. Remember, you aren't the only visitor looking to salvage parts. Other individuals are also looking for components, and not everyone works as safely as possible. If you find a car you'd like to inspect, make sure working conditions are suitable, and if anything looks suspicious or dangerous, find a safer vehicle to tear apart.
Typical gear includes:
  • Pliers
  • Hammer
  • Screwdrivers
  • Hacksaw
  • Short pry bar
  • Combination wrenches
  • Gloves
  • Safety glasses
  • Inch ratchet set
Keep these tools in the car:
  • Inch-drive socket set
  • Large hammer
  • Long pry bar
  • Cardboard
  • Coveralls
  • Two feet of pipe
