Super Service Center
The water pump on our truck blew on the interstate at 10:00 am. We called AAA and Super Service Center. They were closing at noon since it was Saturday and closed on Sunday, but said they would stick around a get us back on the road. It took 3 1/2 hours to get a tow to the center. They waited for us, fixed the truck, did a great job and were as nice as they could be. I would not have been at all surprised if they would have gone home but I am extremely impressed and appreciative that they stayed. I even tried to give them a tip and they wouldn't take it, I wish we had service techs with this level of integrity and customer service in Kansas City.Thanks again for getting us back on the road!!!

Bowen Auto Services
We were given an estimate of nearly $500 by an automotive and tire chain business here in town. We decided to give Kevin at Bowen''s a call. He completed the work the next morning for under $40. When we left we encountered what we thought was a problem with the work and they didn't hesitate to say they'd pay for a tow truck to come get us. Turned out we figured it out and it was nothing and everything was done corrdctly so we didn't need a tow, but what great people to do business with! We couldn't be any more pleased.

Raben Tire and Auto Service
Vocational Rehab required me to have my 2015 Equinox inspected by an ASE certified mechanic before installing a lift for my wife's scooter. The rehab counselor said it should take roughly 30-60 minutes and cost about $35. Instead it took over 1 1/2 hours and cost $142!! That included no repairs (since the vehicle passed), just the inspection checklist. We will NOT be returning to Raben for any work in the future. If an inspection costs that much, I'd hate to think what they would charge us for any needed repair work!

Patino's Automotors
I went with a damaged car (Toyota Matrix) to his shop and he said that the car not be repaired and was better to sale as a scrap metal. I gave him the car, and he sold me an used car. The used car had a lot of heating issues and at the end I move to another repair shop and they found the problem. But the big surprise was he re-sealed the "junk car", inclusive, he did not remove the stickers. I saw the car parked in Washington Square Mall in Evansville.Patino's deceive us, taking advantage from our car situation.

Car-X Tire & Auto
When I took my vehicle there to get engine light checked. Frank was very helpful in letting me know the service I needed was a factory warranty repair and guided me to a dealer that did my repair work. I will go back for oil changes. I know I can trust them.

Midwest Truck & Trailer
I appreciate them getting me in and getting my trailer lights fixed and the work was good they got my lights and brakes working. But they did not listen to me when I dropped the trailer off to when the problem started after a blown tire which I showed them where the wire was disconnected from the trailer light. They spent hours looking for the wire that was grounding out my trailer and in the end it was in the junction box by the tires. So of course my bill was twice as much as it should have been and if they would have started there it would have all been good and they would have gotten 5 stars but I feel that I was screwed on price and was blown off when I wanted to discuss why the bill was so much. Lesson learned will never return or recommend the business to anyone.
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.
