Automotive Profections
I read the below review and I feel surprised. I was referred to Sameer by a friend and am a very happy customer to Automotive Profections. Have referred more friends to this place and they are now loyal customers as well. Each time I have a problem he gives me the best options given my car and budget. I feel surprised on what has been written because more than once he has advised me and my friends in ways which prevent any cash flows from me to him. We have come to see over time through actions that he is truly customer centric and believes in long term loyalty benefits rather than short term payouts. He is a very friendly consistent character with a lot of experience dealing with different vehicles and am sure one visit would make you feel the same. Am neither a relative nor a co-worker to be giving this good a review. I hope as a fellow reviewer you will try out this place and add another review to bring the reality to light. :) CheersRB

Walnut Automotive
I have found a shop I can trust. Great customer service, excellent work and all at a very fair price. They even dropped me off at work so I could leave my car. I went to one of the bigger service shops in the area (you've seen their advertising). The lead mechanic seemed to more interested in selling than in fixing my problem. He told me $1,000 to start and no guarantee that the problem would be solved (car was overheating). Walnut Automotive took care of it for under $600.00 and guaranteed parts and labor. Hard to find someone you can trust when you need auto maintenance or repairs. I will go out of my way to take my car to this shop. I can leave my keys and tell them to take care of it knowing they will only take care of what needs to be done. You can't put a price on trusy.

I would give Sammy a call before bringing the vehicle in for service because this place is busy.Very friendly, fast, straight forward, and easy to talk to. Other places will try to sell you BS more than what you really need, but so far I haven't experience none of that from Sammy(owner), so.. I trust him to work on my vehicle. That's why he is getting lots of good reviews from customers.Feb 4th, 2013 - 2004 Mazda 3 check engine light, replaced Turbine Speed Sensor, oxygen sensor and thermostat with thermostat housing.. excellent price and all done in few hours as he drove to get the parts himself. All done in one day.December, 2012 - 2001 Honda Accord - vibrating heavly when braking, so 2 front brake rotors replacement. 5 stars.

Impressive Auto Service
My 2000 Chevy Express 2500 broke down and turn out to be the engine. They find and replace the whole engine for 2 days (time was precious because that was my only working van) at very, very reasonable price.Not only that - They even fix my check engine light, that was a mystery for at least 5 other service shops. It turn out to be harness problem on the fuel injectors, which Impressive Auto Service fixed for few hundred instead of thousands if you go to the Dealer for diagnostic.I had very bad experience in the past with shady shops and cheaters but these people are honest and upfront and I will recommend them to everybody in need.I would like to special thanks to Impressive Auto Service and especially the owner Mike!George G.

Goodwrench Automotive LLC
I was recommended to Goodwrench by a friend when I asked if he knew of a good body guy to replace a bumper. He said you'll like him so well you'll do ALL your car maintenance business with him. They did a great job on the bumper for low cost, but it was afterwards when we were talking about doing expensive repairs with his shop that Layth was honest enough to advise me to find another car rather than pour more money into the one I had, even though it was costing him the work. I can't remember that ever happening before. So yeah, he and Basil earned my future business.

Layth and Basil are both very professional and knowledgeable. If you’re looking for quality repairs at an affordable price, this is it. Layth even gave me a ride to work when I dropped my car off. They did a fantastic job and the price they quoted me ended up being a little less than what was originally estimated. Wow, how often does that happen? Their thorough inspection of my car and attention to detail found a significant problem with one of my tires which could’ve resulted in death.I will definitely use them again and refer friends and family whenever possible.

mash auto repair and body shop
I had an oil change and brake service done few months back. I was very happy with the service. Last week I took my car in to replace the front bumper. When I got my car , it looked great. But there was something different about my headlight. They looked newer for some reason. So I went back in to ask the manager about it. He said we buffed the lenses, they were foggy and wanted the car to look good. I liked that about Mash and it made me feel special and appreciated.I recommend this shop for the good service and the special thing they did for me.

Windham Automotive
Being a woman and getting jerked around by other mechanics thinking I don't have a clue about cars, it's refreshing to take my car into Windham's Automotive to have work done. They are friendly, don't talk down to me, tell me exactly what's wrong, fix it, tell me how much it will be before they start working on my car, the prices are reasonable and I get my car back to me when they say they will. I will definitely take my car there forever, or at least until the zombie apocalypse starts. : D

Japanese Domestic Auto Repair
Fast & friendly service & they don't try to get you to buy or get un needed repairs. I had them replace both front cv axles & the high pressure power steering hose on my Altima. I also purchased the parts myself from an auto store before hand. Some places won't let you do that bc they won't warranty their work, but City Garage had no problem with it. They also had my car done the next day and ready for pick up like they said they would. Very happy with their work & service.

Tips & Advices
Salvage yards will have different policies regarding warranties, but, in most instances, the parts you find will be covered. Some salvage yards will offer warranties of anywhere from 90 days to six months, and may even offer the option for extended coverage.
After you've successfully found a part or multiple components, take everything up to the clerk. Inform them of what you have and pay. Avoid lying about what you have as a way to pay less. You will potentially be banned if you're found lying. You-pick salvage yards will display the prices for categories of parts. Prices may fluctuate depending on the demand. Harder-to-find items could carry a higher price tag than a brand-new one. If you are salvaging for auto parts, you might see items that are difficult to find and be able to sell them for a profit. Doing so can offset the cost of the price you're paying for the parts you personally need.
It is in your interest to call the salvage yard before arriving to see if they sell smaller components individually, because some yards do not. Some owners choose to not sell small components for financial reasons.  If salvage lots come across a door without the handle, they will have to pay extra to get the handle and attach it to the entire assembly. It is therefore cost-effective for salvage lots to sell entire assemblies.
When rummaging through a car or walking around the lot, stay aware of your surroundings. Remember, you aren't the only visitor looking to salvage parts. Other individuals are also looking for components, and not everyone works as safely as possible. If you find a car you'd like to inspect, make sure working conditions are suitable, and if anything looks suspicious or dangerous, find a safer vehicle to tear apart.
Typical gear includes:
  • Pliers
  • Hammer
  • Screwdrivers
  • Hacksaw
  • Short pry bar
  • Combination wrenches
  • Gloves
  • Safety glasses
  • Inch ratchet set
Keep these tools in the car:
  • Inch-drive socket set
  • Large hammer
  • Long pry bar
  • Cardboard
  • Coveralls
  • Two feet of pipe
