Lytle Auto Sales & Repair
My car's transmission went out as I was driving from Georgia to New Mexico. My husband and I had already contacted a scrap metal place and the tow truck company recommended Mr. Lytle. I am so glad! Chuck was able to fix my car and get me back on the road in one day! For less than $200!!He knows what he is doing and will make adjustments to the repair until it's right. Mr. Lytle and his wife were so kind; she engages with customers like she's your old friend! I have all the trust for these two after my experience today. Plus, they are both funny and will entertain you with great stories while you wait.

Lytle Auto Sales & Repair
On vacation when our armada transmission started slipping. They put us right in the shop. The fix was more than we could do on the road, but they did everything to get us back up and going. The people there are the nicest people you will ever meet. The price for the three hours they spent on our car was unbelievable. I thought I was going to have to pay around $600, they charged me $200. They don't try to screw you because you are an out of state person. I highly recommend this place if you are in need of auto repair. Picture added is the magnet in the pan of the transmission.

After reading the only other review here, I'm surprised there isn't more. Seems like nothing has changed with Larry and the family. My Dad and I were ALSO on a cross country road trip when the computer went out in his truck. We got towed to the shop and the guys were under the hood within minutes! Took a while to get everything figured out and ready to go but it sure was nice bein 1500 miles from home and treated like locals. Larry's got a hell of a group there.

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.
