Martin's Transmission & Auto Repair
This is one of the most honest, reliable transmission repair shops in town that works to satisfy each customer. Before I do business with anyone, I like to do my homework, I looked online and found very good reviews about Martins Transmission and auto repair, but I also found a bad review, so I called them up, introduced myself , I informed the person that answered the phone the reason for my call,(which was to get a quote on the transmission repair) I also told her that I had researched the business before me calling and that I had seen very good reviews for their business, but that there was one review from davem that was bothering me, if she could explain their side of the story. The young lady informed me that due to customer privacy she could not give me much detail on the person that wrote review neither on the case, but she did inform me that the case was reviewed by the court and no negative actions were found on behalf of Martins transmission. She also told me that before going to court, they did everything possible to help the customer out, but the customer was very rude, and refused the help. I felt that the information she had given me was very honest, so I decided to take the vehicle to them, when I arrived to the shop I was very proud of making the decision of taking my vehicle there because the service the ladies in the office offered and the explanation that the technicians give are amazing, they were very kind and professional. The repairs performed to the vehicle were done correctly, they always worked with me, and everything was explained to me before and after the repairs were made so I was able to understand each repair that needed to be performed. It has been a pleasure doing business with Martins transmissions, and I would definitely go back to take my vehicle if it ever needs any other repairs done. Short words from my point of view, like they say “You’ll never know if the movie is good enough until you actually see it yourself!”

Herndon Auto Service-Fresno
SUPERIOR MECHANIC WORK & VERY COMPETITIVE PRICES AT HERNDON AUTO SERVICE IN FRESNO:[SPECIALIZING IN MERCEDES BENZ]On May 8, 2017, I brought my Mercedes Benz 300E 2.6 to Herndon Auto Service located on Herndon & Maroa due to the engine light turning red during the weekend and the warning light activated which warned me that some lights needed to be replaced. I contacted Ricky Altero, the owner, on Saturday, May 6, 2017 regarding all these issues. Ricky answered his cell phone during the weekend and guaranteed me that he would provide me with his own truck during the time that my vehicle would be in his shop for repairs. When I arrived on Monday morning to bring in my vehicle, Ricky had his truck parked and ready for me to take. There have been numerous times throughout the years that Ricky has even loaned me his own sports Mercedes Benz when my vehicle has needed repair work.Arturo Alvarez, the top technician and supervisor from Herndon Auto Service, was honest and sincere with me and immediately informed me that he would replace my Engine Codes 16 EGR and Vacuum Change over-valve. Arturo Alvarez even cleaned the EGR pipe which required an additional hour of labor but didn’t charge me for this additional hour. How many dealerships would perform extra work at no cost like Herndon Auto Service? Also, both Arturo and Ricky exhibited extreme care and cleanliness to my vehicle which has been regarded for so many people throughout Fresno as one of the cleanest Mercedes Benz they have ever seen. I highly recommend Herndon Auto Service, because they take pride in all of their work, have very competitive prices, and take care of matters in a very professional and timely manner. Every single time that I have brought my vehicle to Herndon Auto Service, I feel like I am treated by Ricky Altero, Arturo Alvarez, and all the technicians as a VIP.I will continually take my Mercedes Benz to your # 1 DEALERSHIP IN FRESNO: (559)-431-3556!!!!!Donald Rotella

Martin's Transmission & Auto Repair
Davem AKA DAVID J MCINTOSH A SO CALLED PROFESSIONAL BROKER, I figured since you shared the link below, you would also share the link when you took us to court and as by ordered by the judge we owe you nothing and you lost, and still on top of that we reoffered you our services, and not counting the numerous time you tried reopening a case and got declined. You and Kevin from the BAR have tried numerous times to shut us down, and yeah we make mistakes we are not perfect, but if we are that bad why do we still stand here? You have mentioned various time that your friend Kevin is helping you put everything together to close us down, but if you review your documentation all this is back from 2008 or 2009 and its almost going to be 2014 and Martin's Transmission is still here. We are in the notifying process to give BAR representatives in Sacramento California the unprofessionalism coming from KEVIN. YOUR RACIST comments to Mexicans, and how you don't want a Mexican (trash as you said it) to touch your car, and the multiple phone calls pretending to be a BAR representative saying you are going to close the shop. This is how a broker like you acts, you lied at court and you said you can change laws and even the courts word and final saying, if this is you what a shame. I feel bad for the people that look into buying your services DAVID J MCINTOSH BROKER NOT RECOMMENDABLE AT ALL LIER CHEATER DISRESPECTFUL AND RACIST TO MEXICANS.

Tint Pros
Phenomenal job! I called the Tint Pros shop Friday evening after hours. Couldn’t believe it when the guy returned my call that night. Impressed me so much I made an appointment for the next day, Saturday (today) at 7am. They already had a car slotted for 7am already, but went out of their way to accommodate me. When I arrived 10 min early, the guy was already set up for me. We discussed all the available options. He didn’t try to sell me on any one option. The price was settled (fair price) and was told the job would be done in about an hour. When I said I was going to get some breakfast, the guy threw his car keys to me and said “take my car.” That was unbelievable. This shop did an outstanding tint job on my car, for a great price, and loaned me a car so I didn’t have to walk to a breakfast place. Who does that? Everything is guaranteed with lots of options in case something changes in the future. I’d recommend this shop to anyone. And, when I take my wife’s car to them in a few weeks, I still get the multi-car discount. These guys earned my business. Now go let them earn yours.

Red Carpet Car Wash
Excellent Fast Professional Service. A Noticeably Inspired service team; Quick yet Attentive and Thorough. Props to Workers & Leaders! I remained in my car while it was serviced, kept abreast of checks & procedures, & was shown the dip sticks to see levels for myself. I felt included. They're Open, Forthcoming, w/no deceptions, & nothing left out. Offered options, recommendations, & advice. From my driver's seat I saw the pieces of paper & plastic removed from my air intake compartment that was apparently there for years, & which Walmart oil changers failed many times to remove or show any concern or communication about it with me. I got a $5 off coupon on my phone reducing the already low price, which came with a Free car wash, but that's not all, I was given my choice of iced tea, lemonade, or ice water delivered right to me in my car. Very Happy and Impressed with the service and experience. I was in and out of there in 43 minutes, and there were 9 cars in the garage B4 me.

Herndon Auto Service-Fresno
I have a Mercedes E350 and every time I been bringing my car to the Dealer for service and repairs but the prices and service are not the best. I been looking for a better shop and I found this shop as i was driving back home. As soon as I walked in I was welcomed and they took really good care of me and my car. My car had the check engine light and they kept the car for couple days, they got back to me explaining the issue my car had and price quote to fix it. When they call me to let me know my car was ready the manager was there to see if I had any questions. The price and customer services was pretty good. If you have European car, I'll recommend you this mechanic shop, its an excellent option, great service and friendly customer service.

G N Auto Care
I was traveling to LA when my tire went flat , I located G N auto care and was pleased to see the manager as he was leaving for home. He opened the shop, Restarted all his equipment and then fixed the flat, AT 8:15 pm with a flat tire in a strange Town where I did not know any one. I thought I will pay more than $60 for the repair but manager KB Brar charged me $12.78 total. When i offered him more money he refused and told me this," We are here for Our customers not here to rob them". I like the business ethics . Later I came to know that Kb Brar is a PhD Doctor and that his wife and him own the business. At the End I had a very Pleasant visit there and I would recommend this business to all my family and friends.

Transmission Shack
Found them on the internet. after reading the other reviews on other sires for Transmission Shack, dating back almost 10 years, I gave Transmission Shack a call. The price was the lowest price I've found in Fresno on a Transmission. But like some of the other reviews I've read. The shop is small and not all that impressive But the transmission I bought was of great quailty and worked well. so what can I say other than not just good deal... but a GREAT deal when you consider I spent less than $400 on a transmission that cost over $800 at other places in Fresno. I give 4 stars only because they really need to move their location to a more customer friendly location ( waiting room, water cooler, etc etc. )

Tint Pros
I went to Tint Pros on Friday. Everyone there was extremely friendly and they did an awesome job tinting my SUV. The prices are very reasonable. They were very informative and helpful when deciding what level of tint to use. Alex showed me how the different levels of tint would look. They have an wonderful warranty and I would recommend them in a heartbeat as well as go back to them with any other tinting needs I may have in the future. They are in a new location on Blackstone between Sierra and Bullard, just across the street from U-Haul.Great Job!!! Thanks!!
Tips & Advices
In some cases, it's worth repairing an old alternator. If some parts go bad, they can be inexpensive to repair. For example, alternator belts can be quite cheap, and parts and labor for handling this repair will run you between $100 and $125 for most vehicles, which is significantly less than the cost of a new alternator. If the total cost of the repair exceeds 50 percent of the cost of replacing the alternator, it makes sense to invest in a new alternator.
If your car's alternator has gone bad, you may be able to squeeze in a short journey, but the car's battery will drain very quickly without the alternator's support. Stop-and-go traffic will place even more pressure on the battery, and so will using auxiliary items such as the radio, air conditioning, heater, windshield wipers, and headlights.
A one-wire alternator is a type of alternator that can be easily put into place with the installation of a single wire. The key benefit that these alternators bring is that they are simple to install.  However, many one-wire alternators provide low output when the car's engine is idle, and this can burden the car's electrical system if you're idling at a red light with the headlights and stereo on. Some one-wire alternators also require you to rev the car's engine to a certain rpm to activate the alternator and begin the charging process.
The most common cause of alternator failure is a weak battery. Your car's alternator works very hard to keep your car's battery fully charged, and, if the battery is weak, it can put a great deal of stress on the alternator. The alternator will increase its output to try and keep the battery charged, and this will eventually overtax the alternator and cause it to fail prematurely.
Your alternator's regulator is an automotive part that monitors and oversees the process by which your car's battery is charged. The regulator also supports the alternator by reducing the stress that is placed on the alternator's drive belts, tensioning pulley, and bearings. The regulator may be located inside or outside of the alternator's housing.
