We are from West Virginia and the check engine light came on and the fuel consumption increased and then our car wouldn't start and we were 1000 miles away from home. I took our car to another facility and they scanned our car and found it needed a crank-shaft sensor. So I asked the guy who scanned my car to recommend a reliable honest mechanic who could install the sensor because the Nissan dealership couldn't work me in until the following week, and I had to be in WV the next day... So we were referred to C.A.R.S and to the owner/operator named Eric Holovack. He immediately worked me in even though he had numerous cars already on his docket. He was polite, honest,. professional and so thoroughly interested in helping me get back to West Virginia. I cant begin to tell you how much I highly recommend this facility. It was a wonderful experience for me and my family. THANK YOU ERIC!!!!!!!!!!!

Auto Works and the staff were very accommodating and efficient! I had gone to another place and then wanted a second opinion so I went to Auto Works. The mechanic estimate was essentially the same as theirs but the prices were a little more reasonable. I would definitely consider dropping my car off here in the future for a fix!

Been here 3 times and was sent to other businesses more qualified/equipped to do the job. They are a stand up honest guys.They took a look at my car and knew exactly what was wrong and pointed me in the direction of the right person for the job even if they would get nothing out of it.

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.
