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.

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!

Ahrens Auto Service Center
I went down to Florida to visit some family and my car started acting up before I could get back home to Georgia and see my regular mechanic. My cousin recommended Ahren’s so I tried them out. They were so nice and friendly. They g ave me an estimate and did the work the same day. I was impressed that I even paid less than the original estimate. Thanks for sending me home safely!!

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 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!
Tips & Advices
Some dealers accept returns if the component is returned with the original invoice. Some dealers might charge a re-stocking fee for returns. Others may not accept returns at all. It's common for dealers to not accept returns on electrical parts. Customers should ask about return policies before purchasing.
A salvage yard might test used car parts before selling them, but customers should ask whether tests have been performed on the part or not. All parts, especially electrical components, should be tested prior to purchase. Most salvage yards and auto repair shops should have a 12-volt battery to test electrical parts.
Sometimes it is worth buying used car parts. If the part is in good condition, a car owner could save money by buying the used part. However, if the part is something that's unsafe to purchase used, like brake parts or air bags, or if the part is too deteriorated to be safe, it's worth the cost to buy new.
Junkyards are businesses where people can shop for used car parts. Other names for these businesses include salvage yards and automotive recyclers. Auto repair shops might also sell used car parts.
Yes, most used car part dealers sell to the general public. However, just like with any car parts purchase, buyers should look into the dealer’s warranty policy and might want to price shop at several places.
