Not sure how there were 2 poor reviews here, so thought I'd give something more recent. This place is awesome. Was referred to them by a family friend, and was very pleasantly surprised by a few things. First, they quickly will see you and your car, not making you wait days and days..... most times, they've been able to have me come in same day. Secondly, I didn't even ask for it, but they offered me a temporary car to use for the times I've had to leave my vehicle there for more than a few hours. No extra charge. What a surprise! Lastly, this is one of the only repair shops I've ever used that will suggest cheaper options if it makes sense. They always point out why a more expensive option may not be worth it, and how a cheaper option may be all I need. If you want an honest service center with affordable prices, quick service, and knowledgeable staff, Tostis is the place!

My car needed terminals replaced due to not starting or staying running. Everything worked before and after picking it up yesterday, my radio, clock, and alarm system are not working. I will not go back because Chris said I had break issues and a strut problem. Just replacing battery terminals and a brake line and caliper cost almost $700. I just had the brakes looked at a couple months ago and not really believing there was a problem. Chris told me that brakes go bad overnight while the car sits. There were no brake problems...and this new Massadonian will not be returning or referring anyone else. I will be taking my car to someone trustworthy to fix my radio, clock, and alarm...can't believe this place has been around this long. They do try hard to charm the pants off you as they rob you...if you are into that. I guess I need to check and see if the work was all.

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.
