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.

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.

Tim's Auto Service
Had my heater core replaced. They properly diagnosed the issue, replaced the bad part and showed me the broken part after completion. They also informed me of a potential issue I hadn't seen. Very professional. It took them a little longer then their system quoted for average hours to complete the job, turns out the official number from VW was 3 hours more. Despite this, they only charged me for what was quoted. They didn't use the cheapest part or the most expensive, but rather, one right in the middle. I appreciate this. Great communication also. They were down to earth and honest. They were recommended to me and it payed off. Price was 58% of what the dealership quoted. Great experience. No affiliation prior to this experience. I will use them for my future repairs. P.S I re-posted this from my Google review

Dayton Tire Sales
This is a great business very friendly honest & helpful. Yesterday I ran over something like a plastic box on highway. I didn't see it just heard it. Well I didn't realize it cut the outer wall of my rear tire until l got in my car and a sensor notified me of low tire pressure. This business was close to my office so I went there. The staff identified the problem, and put a temporary used tire on my car until my new tire came in the next day. They could of put my spare on but went extra mile by putting on good used tire. Best of all, they didn't charge my anything but the cost of the new tire! I'm impressed. Very helpful & professional I'd highly recommend this business!

Muffler Man
I recently needed some work done to two of my vehicles. One needed a muffler and the second needed a ball joint for right section of the car. In both repairs given by Muffler Man on Brandt Pike, we were given a fair price, excellent service and work was done in a timely manner. In fact, on one occasion, Randy (Owner) called to inform me that some of the work we thought we needed was not necessary. "Thanks for your honesty." If you're looking for some maintenance done to your car, visit Muffler Man on Brandt Pike and ask for Randy!

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-Kettering/Bellbrook
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
Yes. New tires purchased online can often be priced lower than ones at a tire dealership. Buyers can often avoid state sales taxes and locate hard-to-find tire styles and sizes, but will still have to locate a local tire installer and pay sometimes high shipping costs.
The average cost of a set of new tires is $637, with a range of between $525-$725. In addition, installation includes mounting and balancing, alignment, and disposal of old tires.
The vehicle is raised and the old wheels are removed, then the old tires are removed from the wheels. The lug nuts, wheels, and valve stems are inspected and replaced as needed. The new tires are mounted and sealed, then inflated and balanced. The wheels are then replaced on the car. The average installation takes approximately 45 minutes.
Agencies such as the Tire Industry Association promotes tire safety through advocacy and education to the industry including: manufacture, sales, repair, service and recycling. Seek a full-service tire dealer who carries a wide variety of tire types and brands and asks about the type of driving you normally do.
  • Move your car to a safe location.
  • Turn on your car’s safety lights, apply the parking brakes and remove the hubcap if there is one.
  • Loosen the lug nuts with a lug wrench (but do not remove them), raise the vehicle with a jack and then fully remove the lugnuts.
  • Remove the flat tire and replace it with the spare tire.
  • Tighten the lug nuts by hand, lower the car and then tighten them fully with the lug wrench.
