Super friendly and honest My 1996 Honda accord (stick-shift) sounds hoarse when starting to move and driving at low speed. The noise seems to be worse during corner turning and breaking. I suspected big trouble and called Mr. White who is the owner and mechanic. Although full in schedule, he allowed me to come to his shop. He stood aside, let me to start and move my car, and knew right away that it was low in steering fluid. The problem went away after adding the fluid. It was almost free of charge. I can’t thank him enough and definitely will come back and recommend him to friends and families.

Overpriced. Labor cost close to $300 for radiator flush, changing a frw hoses and greasing the undercarriage. Was told my radiator was flushed days after the antifreeze was brown. Nothing I could do about it as I didn't have my reciept. But hey it was same day service.

The only place I will take my vehicles! I have been a customer since 1986. From the beginning, Mr Franklin was honest and fair. He explained what he did and showed me the old parts to compare.

Tom Davis Automotive is absolutely the best auto repair company I've ever had repair my car. First before the work I spoke with Lisa about the issue (car was stolen and they took and broke parts of my motor), she was so thoughtful and took the time to assure me that all would be fine & was the only one who actually gave me any since of calm and most importantly it would be fixed perfectly with the only about of money I had. Second the gentleman that did the repair work did an amazing job!!!! It's a 2002 and it now drives and runs like a 2015. They did everything in one day and even took the time to bring it to me when they were finished. They went about and beyond. This is my 2nd time having repairs done with the same excellent results!!!!

Took my wife's Audi there when it quit because I didn't have time to mess with it was told the computer was out he charged me 600.00 and I had it the next day when I asked to see the old parts he said they were shipped back to California for the core! BULL you can't get a new computer from California in 8 hours what delivery company is that? I paid it because I needed the car a week and a half later it quit again this time I dug into it myself and found the wires they repaired(badly) and fixed it myself also found the factory computers still in the car (serial numbers) matched the car and no remanufacturer stickers this guy is a crook stay away!!!!

Very honest shop. Wonderful Experience. My college age daughter (ISU) had an accident with her Honda Civic in January. Lost control of the car on I-35 and hit the median guardrail. The car had some body damage due to the accident. Her boyfriend thought the car brakes and steering felt soft and maybe were damaged. She brought the car to White's to have them check it out. They did a great job looking at it and found that nothing was wrong with the car. They did not charge her for anything. It is really wonderful to find a repair shop so honest and helpful. We will definitely use them in the future. It was great to have somebody confirm that the car was OK and to give us peace of mind. Thanks!!

they are good at what they do,unlike so many private shops. they dont try to con you into needless repairs,and they try to find you the least expensive solution.
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.
