Advanced Automotive Repair
My car started running worse and worse and then it began overheating. I went to the garage close to where I live. They looked at it and said the engine needed rebuilding and quoted me over a thousand dollars. That was way out of my budget. When my dad heard he recommended a garage he has used for 15 years repeatedly. Out of desperation I took his advice and went to ADVANCED AUTOMOTIVE REPAIR of Deland Fl for their diagnosis. After looking at it, they said it only needed a head gasket for $290. They had it fixed the next day and I was out the door. That was four months ago and it still runs like a champ. The funny part is, Jud from ADVANCED AUTOMOTIVE REPAIR is not a slick talker that convinces you like some high priced sweet talking salesman out to empty your wallet. He says whats wrong with the car, what it will cost to fix it, how long it takes to fix. After that he doesn't have much to say. He doesn't seem desperate for more business. Conversation is not his strong suit. But fixing it right and saving me money is his strong suit, and that suited me just fine. Thanks Jud. Sharon

Dave has been wonderful to us and our vehicles. In a world where car dealerships and so many technicians are downright criminal Dave is a breath of fresh air. Dave has always treated us with kindness and respect. Being of humble means it is awesome ro know an honest technician who does only what needs to be done at a fair price. Another rare quality in Dave if you provide the part he only charges labor that my friend is hard to find. Dave does his very best to diagnose your problem first time out though like in many repairs he never knows when a greater problem will be found. In closing if you want someone who is honest and good Dave is your man.

DeLand Collision Center
I had an accident which was someone else's fault - so I can't speak to the cost. I only know that they were very helpful. My father had just died and I had no paperwork with me as my life was in chaos. They pulled the information and took care of things for me. They have excellent customer service. And as stated in someone else's review, the car was cleaner inside and out when it was returned to me. I can't even tell there was ever any damage to the car. And I have a lifetime guarantee as long as I own this car. They made a tough time a little easier for me.I would recommend them to anyone needed body work to their vehicle.

Ted And Sons Automotive Services
We use Ted & Sons when we need auto repairs. I asked around and saw positive reviews. All of my dealings have been great. A couple different times we would go there with a problem Jerry or his brother would fix it in just a few minutes and then say no charge. Each time I didn't expect it and I thought it would be at least $100. Another time I turned on the AC an smoke came out the air vent. They sent use over to Orange city Auto Elect. It is an Honest company because honest people work there. They do little things for nothing when they can they repair autos right the first time at a fair price. I highly recommend them. Bill Watford

DeLand Collision Center
Good people to deal with . Located additional damage not noted in original appraisal which was essential to a correct repair . Car returned cleaner inside and out than when taken in for the repairs . Reasonable charge to insurer for the quality and extent of work done . Arranged a smaller rental car than mine which saved me ( and the insurer ) on rental cost and fuel charges , which was helpful at this time . I am very pleased with the quality of work performed , and can recommend this business to others .

Our car was in need of lots of repair so we looked into replacing it but decided we couldn't affors it right now. A friend recommended Wallace Automotive in Deland so we brought our car there. We had to have new front and rear struts, all new brakes, new steering pump, a complete tune-up and he even replaced our door handles all at a reasonable price. Our car has not run this good in years. We may never have to replace it. Thank-you Wallace Automotive!

Cruisin' Concepts
Just had my tint repaired after a lil bit of peeling on the front two windows (driver's side door & passenger side door) after 8 years with it looking great. It was still covered under the lifetime warranty, so it cost me nothing. They did a fantastic job! Thanks guys, keep up the great work. I definitely refer anyone I know needing tint, to go to Cruisin' Concepts.

Dyno Tune Center
My van quit on me while I was on the way to Deland so I had it towed to Dyno Tune where they discovered that the crankshaft position sensor was bad. The final bill was a little less than what they had quoted me so that was a pleasant surprise. If you want a correct diagnosis, efficient and competent repair, and a fair bill for services rendered this is the place.
Tips & Advices
Depending on the part and its overall quality, a good amount of money can be saved by purchasing aftermarket parts versus OEM parts. But aftermarket parts that are low in price might also be lower in quality and could do more harm than good to your car, or they may need to be replaced more frequently than a more expensive counterpart. This could lead to saving some money in the short term, but spending more than anticipated in the long term.
The type of tires being purchased is the most significant determinant of their price. SUV tires are more costly than average car tires. And high-performance tires are more costly than economy grade tires. On average, standard tires for an average-sized vehicle are around $100 per tire. Standard tires for an SUV are around $150 and pick-up truck tires are about $200 on average. Some dealers offer discounts if purchasing more than one tire.
Car inspections typically take about an hour. However the wait time can be longer depending on how busy the shop is. Call ahead for an appointment to avoid long wait times.
Depending on the manufacturer, certain aftermarket parts can be just as reliable as Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) parts. But one item within a vehicle, like oil filters for instance, could have multiple manufacturers and there could be inconsistencies in quality among them.
Costs of replacing a windshield can vary greatly depending on a variety of factors:
  • Vehicle make and model
  • How much of the cost insurance will cover
  • Whether the windshield installers come to your location or you bring the vehicle to them
  • Standard service costs of the windshield installers
Generally, newer and higher-end vehicles cost more to have their windshields replaced because certain manufacturers use modified or proprietary glass types.
