Reasonable Auto Repair
Brought my ford ranger in to have bearings replaced in my rear differential. Two months later it's busted up. This guy didn't even put gear oil back in!!!!! Now he's trying to tell me it could of leaked out, but all my seals are good. I think I would have noticed black oil leaking from under my truck. It's 90 weight gear oil, the stuff doesn't just leak out overnight. Can't even get a 90 day warranty. Never again. Replaced rear axle, old one was bone dry. This guy sucks!!!!!!

This place reminds me of the old time car repair shops. Remember the 2-bay garages with just one guy working at his own pace? No one pushing him to make a quota. I totally LOVE it!!! There are no snot nosed kids making $5/hr attempting to fix your car. You get it fixed and fixed right. So much better than the dealership telling you that it's intermittent and they won't fix it unless it's a check engine light telling them there's something wrong. This guy uses the most up-to-date equipment. You won't find junkie Sears tools here. I drive all the way out from the Westside because I can trust the work and know he'll use OEM parts! Obviously they are doing something right if they've been in business before the highway was put in!!!
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.
