Mark Muffler Shop
I tried Marks because of the overall positive rating. That ended up being a huge mistake.I brought in two mufflers and chrome exhaust tips I ordered from summit racing for them to install. One hour and forty seven minutes later I was handed a bill for two hundred and ninety four dollars. What the hell? Based off their labor rate the bill should have been 140-150 bucks. When I protested it was explained to me that the labor rate only applies if you buy the parts from them. Wow. They didn't even offer the type of muffler I wanted. I will never go back and do not recommend this place. I can't help but wonder if some of the positive reviews weren't written by friends and family.

Dobbs Tire And Auto Center
I'm had them align my van. Drove straight for about 2 weeks. Some wrench left the bolts loose and I ruined 2 front new tires. I barely made it to them. I was told "just let me sell you 2 new tires!" This service manager made me wait 7 hours until they repaired the work they did! I had to get 2 new tires on the front. I bought them from them. They said they "gave" them to me at their cost... Right. 250? I will never recommend this business. My name is Steve Beavers
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.
