William Wade Auto Repair
This is my second time dealing with this shop, the first time was when I brought in my Buick Regal for a head gasket. Tom quoted me less then 1/3 the next best price. When he got into the job, he discovered by head was also cracked, and found another for $50. Since then, my car has run perfectly, was done on time and within price. I highly recommend this shop. The guy is honest, and does good work. He could easily have totally screwed me with my last repair and I would never have known, and would have happily paid and moved on. The fact that he chose to be honest and up front speaks volumes for the integrity of his shop. I will be back whenever I need service.

Midas Auto Service Experts
I went there initially because they had the lowest price oil change of the major chains. i was pleasantly surprised by there "no tricks" approach. Chris the manager was super nice and honest, as when the the results of the inspection pretty much matched with what i knew needed to be fixed. He also gave me an excellent quote on changing a catalytic converter on my wife's car. I even met the mechanic and was impressed with him also. I took the wife's car in of course for its oil change the next week. I will definitely be back for some of those repairs. Great shop especially compared to some other "scam" shops in the area. Highly recommended!

Park Place Car Wash & Detailing Center
I recently took my car in to get washed and detailed here. I paid for "the works" ($32.99 plus tip) my car was washed very nicely and my dash was definitely clean, however, the extra services I paid for (vacuuming, tire shine, etc.) were not up to par for what I paid. I would recommend this place for just the "Basic" wash (I would also recommend going on the website to get a coupon), since I paid twice as much for the same service. Definitely not worth the extra.

Advance Auto Repair & AC
I had an emergency, it was 4:55 and they were about to close but they still serviced my car. I am a law student at the University of Florida, and I am new to the Gainesville area and did not know any mechanics. I was referred to Advance Auto by Advanced Autoparts. Mr. Green and his wife were both very nice to me. Mr. Green was honest, hardworking and did an amazing job!! Will definitely be back if my car has any further problems!

Dave's Garage of Gainesville
Dave is a great mechanic. I know that this guy is the real deal because I was actually introduced by a racing car mechanic nearby who had known him for some time. Garage of Gainesville will perform an honest and great service with your car, whatever the problem may be. I have not met a better mechanic than Dave so far. Great guy.

Dave offers great service at a great price. Gainesville is full of crooked "automotive repair specialist" - don't make the mistake of going to one of those. Call Dave and he'll take care of your car right, the first time, and won't charge a penny more than what was actually needed.

Eddie Davis Automotive
Eddie and the people who work with him are the best. Not only is customer service fantastic, but when they say they are going to fix something by a certain time, they get 'er done. They take the time to explain what's broken and how it's going get fixed. They really are awesome!

Tom did a tune up on my 1999 Lexus LS400 and informed me of a valve cover leak and a vacuum leak on my manifold. They fixed all and for a fraction of other shops much less the dealership. My car runs better than it has for years. A great job, honest guy and at a great price.

This guy is the real deal at unreal prices. He knows what he's doing and he is an HONEST MECHANIC. Being from Miami I know that those two words are rarely found in the same sentence- that's why I decided to write this review to give hims his due props!

I would recommend these guys to anyone. My car had scratches and paint from a hit and run on it. When my car was finished it looked as if, I had got it off the lot. Real professional job and at a affordable price.
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.
