Steve's Mobile Repair
I found Steve online. He was the only guy out of 4 different tries on a Sunday that would answer his phone. My sons starter went out and he had school and work the following Monday. Steve got here in less than his estimated 30 minutes. He gave me a fair quote for the job. I supplied the new starter which I purchased from Auto Zone. After replacing the part, it did not work. He informed me I had purchased a faulty part. I went to O' Reilly per his suggestion and got a new starter before returning the other to Auto zone. He put it in and it started right up. He in effect had to replace the part twice, so I offered him more money than the original estimate he gave. He refused and just asked that we call him when we need a mechanic again. I definitely will. Friendly, timely, reliable and honest. Thank you Steve.

I took my 1998 S70 with over 200K miles to Auto Tech because it had a lot of deferred maintenance. I wanted to find a local Volvo repair shop that would do a good job but not be as high priced as the Volvo dealer. At Auto Tech, I was given options of how we could repair my S70. But the best experience was when the owner Tom, diagnosed my intermittent fuel delivery problem. By asking key questions and driving my car several times, he discovered a faulty part that the scanner would not pick up do to my Volvo's age. This was key since I was about to replace the fuel pump, the fuel filter and O2 sensor guessing it would solve the problem. My S70 gets better gas mileage now and I don't have to worry about losing power while on the freeways.‎

I had Sophia's Auto come out to my house because my car would not start and I didn't want to have to get it towed. They did the diagnostic for free since I had them do the work. My car would crank over but not start. The mobile mechanic that came out was very knowledgeable and have everything figured out really quick.I needed a fuel pump on my car. They took off my gas tank right at my house and had my car running the same day. Sophia's Auto definitely saved me money and I was able to sit at home and not worry about going back to a shop or anything.Thanks and I will definitely use them again.

If Your trying to locate a responsible, car repair mechanic you found the right person. Steve is so reliable . I called with a bad water pump at 10:00 am he was there by 2pm with another water pump ready to install ... In 2012 the prior water pump was replaced also by Steve with a Lifetime Guarantee on the part. He came by, had another one with him to replace out checked belts....overlooked the motor compartment...topped of fluids....I realized I have had Steve work on my cars for around 14 years ! I highly recommend his Superior Service, and Convenience for Myself .. Thank You Steve

He is honest, fair, and a really nice guy! His prices are very reasonable and well worth every penny. My husband never worries about the price, because Steve is an honest guy. You'll never have to worry about dealership prices again! Thanks Steve!

Have been using Steve's Mobile Auto Repair service for 10 years now. Fantastic service, always gets the job done right. Steve is fast , friendly and trustworthy. Last week our truck would not start, called Steve and he came right out to our home. In minutes he found the problem. The issue solved and he saved me having to pay for a tow truck and as well as getting great service right at my home, so is very cost effective as well.

First of all Steve was very kind on the phone and better in person with fast and very knowledgable work. Was afraid my car was going to be a costly problem but he came at me with a fair price and in no time he had my car running, he has my respect because honest mechanics are hard to come by would definitely recommend him to everyone looking for their car to be fixed. He's already on my speed dial list! Thanks again Steve.

Steve was amazing! Diagnosed my problem, replaced my battery, and educated me on my car all within 45 mins. He drove about an hour to get to me during rush hour and did not charge me for it. Even saved me the sales tax! I received a top-of-the-line new battery which I can have replaced for free if ever need be. He even oiled it to prevent future corrosion. I highly recommend Steve for your car emergencies!

What can I say about Steve’s Mobil Repair but that it is the best thing since sliced bread!! Steve is efficient, knowledgeable, punctual and just down right good at his craft. I was in need of immediate assistance, and being mechanically challenged, I called Steve who promptly came to my aid and saved the day! Needless to say I now have him on speed dial in case I find myself in the same situation.
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.
