Goodlettsville Auto Salvage
Don't judge this business by its curb appeal. I have got to know the owner and his mechanics over the last 3 years. He is honest, and extrememly capable. I have taken in both American cars and foreign cars. I have recommended Terry to my best friend and he saved significant money from the alternatives including dealers. With repair places, your repair is only as good as the actual person who works on your car. I have had excellent results from all of the mechanics. Goodlettsville Auto Storage is busy, so try and plan ahead. if you can give them a reasonable amount of time, you will be happy you did. Call ahead. 615 859-1888.

8 days after I dropped the car off for a repair estimate, I called and they told me the repairs they'd done so far were $600 and it still needed a catalytic converter, another $400. My locking gas cap was stolen, all the gas was siphoned out, the back window was pried open and the AC quit recycling air. The mechanic just shrugged his shoulders when I showed him that it no longer worked right. It's hard enough to spend $1000 to fix a $2000 car. Add stolen gas, a break in and more damage...I won't go back there.

enjoyable I just had a oil change very quickly and everyone new what they were doing I would recommend you very highly.
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.
