Barry's Performance
I left feeling very confident in my vehicle and well informed!After the "Check Engine" light appeared on my trailblazer, I had called several establishments. Barry's was referred to me by Ed's tires. A diagnostic costs $35, but is waived if the repairs exceed the $35 charge. There are shops that will charge a ridiculous amount for the diagnostic alone in addition to repairs and parts, etc. The mechanic, Chris, who worked on my vehicle also took the time to explain the code and it's function. Mine was an EVAP code that basically was triggered by running the engine while the gas cap was loose. Simple enough. Then he showed me how he ensured that everything was functioning correctly with the Emissions from the fuel by the stability of the pressure readings and the release process. I actually got to see for myself! This all took minutes. Then we address another issue that I had not originally come to shop, but figured that I'd have it looked at. Chris took his time to find out what was wrong with my horn (Which as quoted from other shops is a VERY EXPENSIVE repair). Chris discovered and fixed what was wrong with my horn all the while explaining what he was doing and why he was doing it and only charged me a small fraction of what it would have cost me at another shop.For the most part, Chris was very knowledgeable of his Craft and yet humble, not to mention the Integrity I witnessed from him. He would look up or ask questions in resolution of something he was unsure of or just didn't know. It was refreshing to me because he never left me uninformed. As a cherry on top of a well iced cake, he even fixed a very minor cosmetic issue at no cost to me. I will go back for my automotive needs and I would encourage others to check out Barry's Performance as well!

Nathan's Auto Repair Inc
I don't TRUST any other mechanic with my vehicles...Nathan's Auto Repair is a gem of a business! They don't do transmissions or wheel alignments; all the rest...they are the best. I never go back to the dealership after purchasing a vehicle; Nathan is the only doctor my vehicle knows (if they could truly know). I have been going to Nathan for 23 years! I recommend him highly. He will not cheat you nor will he talk down or over your head. He will discuss your vehicle with you when you go to pick it it. AND, the receptionist, Hilly, is the best receptionist I have ever encountered in my adult life! She is extremely busy everyday but she maintains the most cheerful attitude at all times! But, I have never heard while in the shop or by ear anyone say anything bad about Nathan's Auto. BEST AUTO REPAIR BUSINESS OF ALL TIMES!

Nathan's Auto Repair Inc
Nathan is one of the few true mechanics still standing. He can diagnose problems almost by ear. I had a 1962 VW that sat in a driveway for 10 years and he had it up and running in a day! I have sent many people his way and none was disappointed. A great family run business with a fantastic, quality, service.These are knowledgeable and experienced people who can repair any car or honestly advise you where to take your problem (like transmissions). Auto repair places are known to cheat folks so if you find a trustworthy and honest mechanic for all your needs, it is a blessing. Nathan's Auto is the place! Ask anyone who has ever been a customer there and they will tell you. It's a darn good idea to have an appointment because people who use Nathan's do not go elsewhere - ever.

Nationwide Transmission
Talk about great service!! I researched Better Business Bureau (BBB) for repairs and found Nationwide Transmission. I made an appointment online and 10 minutes later, after store hours might I add, I received a phone call from the owner! I explained my situation and he went above and beyond to retrieve my vehicle. His transmission diagnostic test pinpointed where we needed to go. He does nothing without the consent of the customer after his FREE test. My money situation was the hold up on having my vehichle repaired and Blake explained he would do everything he could to help and that he did!! My car was fixed in no time and I cannot say enough how much I appreciated the great service! Thank you would be an understatement!

Tow-N-Go LLC
My and family and I were on our to Fayetteville from Raleigh to visit relatives for the weekend and our tire blew out. I called Tow and Go and another company in the same zip code to get a quote on loosening lug nuts on our tire so we could put the spare on. Tow-N-Go had the best price and were able to meet us sooner than the other company. It was a Saturday morning in the pouring rain. Julius came out and helped us with our issue with a smile and was very polite and professional and eager to do what he could to help us out. I would highly recommend this company hands down!

Graham Auto Service
Tom is a fantastic mechanic. He is the only person I go to. I always go to him for my oil changes and I'm in and out in a flash and the pricing is fantastic. I also love that I'm supporting a small business. I've gone to him to get my radiator fixed and he did it for much cheaper than anyone else around. I absolutely love this business. Before I started going here I dealt with a lot of mechanics trying to rip me off because I'm a female. Not Tom. Very kind and upstanding mechanic.

Hinson Automotive
For over 4 years Hinson Automotive is the only mechanic in Fay.,NC to service my vehicle. It all started with need of a set of tires that no other in Fay.,NC could match their price. From then on Hinson Automotive and Staff have serviced my vehicle and my friends (females & military mostly). For females it is hard to trust a mechanic that they are trying to take advantage of making money for something that's not broke. I appreciate their honesty and professionalism.

Schwab's Automotive
I have been taking my vehicles to Bruce for the past 6 years. He is knowledgeable, prompt and very reasonable. It's hard to find this kind of service in Fayetteville. They are a NAPA dealer so your parts are backed by a good warranty or you can bring your own parts. Either way, Bruce will take care of you. The best part is their installation is very reasonable. I have never had a bad experience with them I highly recommend their service.

Tips & Advices
Yes. New tires purchased online can often be priced lower than ones at a tire dealership. Buyers can often avoid state sales taxes and locate hard-to-find tire styles and sizes, but will still have to locate a local tire installer and pay sometimes high shipping costs.
The average cost of a set of new tires is $637, with a range of between $525-$725. In addition, installation includes mounting and balancing, alignment, and disposal of old tires.
The vehicle is raised and the old wheels are removed, then the old tires are removed from the wheels. The lug nuts, wheels, and valve stems are inspected and replaced as needed. The new tires are mounted and sealed, then inflated and balanced. The wheels are then replaced on the car. The average installation takes approximately 45 minutes.
Agencies such as the Tire Industry Association promotes tire safety through advocacy and education to the industry including: manufacture, sales, repair, service and recycling. Seek a full-service tire dealer who carries a wide variety of tire types and brands and asks about the type of driving you normally do.
  • Move your car to a safe location.
  • Turn on your car’s safety lights, apply the parking brakes and remove the hubcap if there is one.
  • Loosen the lug nuts with a lug wrench (but do not remove them), raise the vehicle with a jack and then fully remove the lugnuts.
  • Remove the flat tire and replace it with the spare tire.
  • Tighten the lug nuts by hand, lower the car and then tighten them fully with the lug wrench.
