If it wasn't for the fact they carried Weihenstephananer beer I wouldn't go here. You can count on the staff always havng a rude and a "i don't care attitude."

Auto MD
I recently took my Dodge Ram with a Hemi into AutoMD for an estimate to repair an exhaust leak. That afternoon they called me and said the engine had a rod going out and that they would be happy to install a new engine at the price of $5000. I said no and picked up the vehicle. That weekend I repaired the exhaust leak myself by installing two new exhaust gaskets. The noise my truck was making is now gone and it runs perfectly. I don't know if the mechanic and store manager are crooks or just incompetent, but to anyone else who goes to this business, get a second opinion.

Called AAA as daughters car broke down. AAA recommended D&B. Figured since AAA recommended them should be a safe was. Nice people. The car got there late in the morning and I was called late in the day with what the problem was. They gave me options on what to do with quotes. If I lived in Derby I'd patronize this place frequently with automotive work.

Sewell Retail Liquors
On my first visit to this store I was helped by a friendly gentleman who said they accepted all competitors coupons and took the one I had at the time. I returned again a few months later with a competitors coupon and this time a lady was there who very sternly told me they had never accepted competitors coupons in the 4 years she had worked there, suggesting I was lying. Gave me a lot of attitude so I will NOT go there again.
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.
