Morris Auto Service
The staff was so nice and treated me with kindness. I actually came in because my brakes were going bad. They fixed them within a hour and everything is great! When I went in to pick my car up my boyfriend's truck broke down. I explained to them what had happened to his truck and they said they would get it towed and looked at as soon as possible. They got the truck in and found out that it was the starter. My boyfriend also asked them to take a look at his coolant because it was leaking somewhere. The mechanic called him back not even an hour later telling him his coolant was leaking into his engine and they would have to take the engine apart to clean it and fix what was wrong. They got this done in less than 24 hours and we haven't had any problems since then. Overall, their prices were very fair. I would go to them again in a heartbeat and I also would recommend my friends and family to go there as well.

Reynolds Auto Repair
I just had my first experience at Reynolds Auto Repair and couldn't be happier. James Reynolds, the owner, provided service to my car in a prompt, efficient manner. What made the experience so special was his honesty and desire to help. He explained what was wrong with my brakes and what he needed to do to fix them. He quickly gained my trust. I will definitely go back.

Aj Service
Jeff is the only mechanic I have ever trusted, straight up. I have had him work on numerous cars, and he is honest, fair, and most importantly, honest. Never had an issue after he has made repairs. And he is very fair on his prices.

I've been to Perry Automotive twice now - once for brakes and once for an oil change. Their prices are reasonable and they're great at explaining things with a smile in words that anyone can understand. I love them!

Excellent service. In two appointments so far they have got me in on time and kept me updated on status of their work while waiting. Their prices on in line with competitors and I will go back.

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.
