Felix Auto Service
An honest, reliable, amazingly affordable, down to earth auto service and repair shop that doesnt try and steal your money or sabotage your vehicle? What? I have finally found that they do indeed exist! I am a female who has had horrible luck in the car department and when a friend recommended Felix, I thought, why not? The last shop i took it to (the dealership i bought it from, Lustine Toyota in Woodbridge -- NEVER go there btw) I got GOT! Service was terrible, ruined my AC Compressor, never fixed the crazy loud noise it made, and I spent 30 times as much as i shouldve. I took it to Felix and he was SO nice and professional. He walked me through what was REALLY wrong with my car, took time to explain so i understood, and gave me a discount, (on an already cheap price) for my previous troubles with the other shop! Stayed later to finish my car so that I could have it for work the next day and didnt charge anything extra, just amazing customer service. Great respectable family guy that really knows his stuff and just provides flexible quality service and actually cares about making his customers happy no matter what--and keeping them. I wont go anywhere else from now on!

Lee Highway Automobile Repair
Nick, Shawn and John are great, they knew how to get my new/old 1984 Mercedes CDT running like a top. It is difficult to find mechanics willing and able to work on these old diesels. I bought the car off eBay sight unseen and knew I was going to have to put money into it. They found used parts and passed the savings on to me. I highly recommend Lee Highway Gas and Auto and even put their info on my back license tag frame. Beep and wave "HI"!

Dawson's Auto Care
Great Gas Prices but most importantly they are honest with car repairs and excellent prices...when i first came to Virginia years ago as a woman i got ripped off a lot on car repairs...then my good friend Iman mentioned Dawsons...now this was a blessing because they are honest in their work and pricing...i suggest all women go there for their repairs.

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.
