This shop saved me on an RV trip when I put gas in my diesel truck how stupid was that. They had it fixed and out by the next morning. Thankfully once they drained it my injectors and what ever else it could have ruined seemed to be fine. Got me back to Houston and so far so good. Gary even brought a book to me that I left has the shop that evening. They could have told me everything was ruined and replaced all that expensive stuff so that shows what a great honest shop it is. Thank you guys.

I moved here 3 years ago from my hometown and was looking for small town atmosphere, service and friendliness. I found it at Gary's. They have been so helpful in maintaining my car and I so appreciate their shuttle assistance to work when my car is in the shop.

Gary's Staff were very friendly and efficient! I had taken it to Midas several times and spent MAJOR $ and they were still unable to fix my truck! Gary's did it right the first time and the repair bill was afforadable and their work was guranteed!

Towed my auto into Gary's. (Surprise to them!) Told them I couldn't get it started. Needed the starter replaced. Got the car back that day and at a reasonable price. Great group to do business with. Friendly, fast and affordable.

Brown's Repair does great work. Got my car fixed fast and the cost was better than the other quotes I had checked on.
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.
