Tom's Service Center
Best mechanic in Grand Rapids friendly and reasonable. Told me what was wrong and how much it would cost and got the job done asap. Much cheaper than going to a dealership.

Merl's Towing Service
Do not use them no matter how desperate you are. Not only did they screw me with an 800 dollar fee for an undriveable car, but when I PAID it off it was still sent to claims! Now i have to dispute that i paid this several months ago without a receipt because it was paid over the phone! They are nothing but money grabbing scam artists.

Hi-Tech Tire & Service
I wish I could give them zero stars. They say they do things like clean rims for good seal and they lie. I went to discount tire to see if they did what they said they did. I was correct,Goodyear did not do what they said. Poor quality service. Fake technicians.

Merl's Towing Service
Hopefully your car never gets stolen and they are the ones called to tow it because I can guarantee you that they won't even check to see if it was reported stolen. Then, they will stick you with weeks worth of impound fees due to their incompetence. Won't work with you and likely won't respect your circumstance since it doesn't affect them. They are raking in the $$ and do not care about customer service. Avoid.

Auto Lab of Plainfield
Rude petty thiefs. We had a Groupon for 2 oil changes but they refused to honor the 2nd oil change. Terrible business!

Auto Doctor
Gary is very honest and trustworthy. He never tries to trick you into getting more done than what absolutely needs to be done. Always pleasant to deal with. He has serviced my car and many relatives and friends and I've never heard a complaint! He's very busy so sometimes you have to wait to get in or wait a little while to get your car, but it's worth it in the long run!

Complete Automotive Repair Inc
My died when I stopped in Coopersville for gas. Tried to Jump it and nothing. Called AAA and they sent out A two truck. Checked the battery and was good but the connection was bad. He got it started and said I should not drive to Bath, Mi. Said he would follow me to the Alpine Exit and replace the connections. Took about 15 minutes and only charged me for the parts and I was good to go. So grateful for what he did for me. Very nice. I like auto repair shops like this. Would go back if I needed anything if I didn't live so far. Might just go anyway. thank you Complete Automotive Repair.

Walker Auto Service
Can't speak to the management of the place but bought a car from a mechanic that works at Walker Auto and had asked what repairs he foresaw within the next 6 months when we purchased (he said maybe the alternator-he was right-it went within 3 days-otherwise nothing). It did well on a test drive but within a week it was undriveable due to problems with the radiator (among other things) that a mechanic should have been well aware of. When we contacted him about these among other issues he offered to give us a discount on the repairs. This was a private purchase but we were told they also sell cars at the business. Hopefully management is more knowledgable and has more integrity but approach with caution.

Jay's Garage
Jay's garage did great work on my 2003 Yamaha V-Max last fall. I had been referred to him from some friends at AutoZone as a very competent mechanic at reasonable rates. He went well above what I ever expected and made sure things were right.I had Jay do a lot of maintenance that I had been putting off for quite some time. He did a valve adjustment on my bike's V-4, took care of some leaking carbs, did some front end work to resolve some pesky wobble issues, replaced tires & more.All I can say is my experience with Jay was great. I haven't checked out his new location yet, but I soon will as I need him to look over a 2010 FJR1300 I recently picked up.Brian W.
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.
