Took my car there a month ago to have my starter replaced. Last week my fly wheel went out due to the old starter. I took my car back to them but couldn't get it done for a week so I picked up the car and took it to get done sooner. DRB was so petty they refused to warranty the starter which ended up being bad due to teeth missing on old fly wheel. I felt that was very unfair knowing I took it to the 1st but because its the only car ai have I couldn't be without for a week. The wife has a horrible attitude and I will never return or recommend to anyone ever...

I would highly recommend this auto body shop. I needed some body work and a rear light assembly replacement, and I was not happy with the quality of the first after market assembly unit they obtained, so they ordered another one that was perfect, so I was very pleased with the quality of their work, their flexible scheduling, their price, and their timely completion of the work, and, primarily, their seriousness about customer satisfaction.

DRB Automotive is a great place to get almost anything done to your car! It's owner and mechanic Joe seemed to be very knowledgeable and did not hesitate to share his knowledge. He was very honest when inspecting my friend's car and saved her over $250 on a services another larger company claimed "needed" to be done in the next month or so.... He didn't mind informing us of this even if it meant postponing our business. Joe is an honest man with great integrity and I wouldn't mind sending anyone his way!
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.
