Watson Performance
It was approximately 100 degrees outsideā€¦It was approximately 100 degrees outside and unfortunately my air conditioning was not working!! I happen to be riding pass and read the sign Air Conditioning Service, after observing the building I said to myself that this place looks nice and professional!! I pulled in and upon getting out of my car, the owner Mr. Watson approached me and said politely "May I help you Ma'am?" I then proceeded to explain to him the issue I was having in which he replied that it was not a problem and would be attended to immediately. I then asked him in curiosity how much the service cost in which he replied 59.99! I thought this was beyond a reasonable price to prevent from sweating to death!!! He invited me to either wait inside or outside which ever I preferred but because of the heat I decided to proceed inside. upon entering the facility I observed the cleanliness of the building and the nice waiting area. a young lady named Regina greeted me upon entering and directed me to the waiting area. Another lady who's name was Hazel then approached me and offered me a cold bottle of water or soda pop whichever I preferred. I gladly accepted. The ladies sat a socialized with me and gave me a very welcoming feeling. After waiting for a brief period a nice young mechanic named Joshua then approached me and informed me that my vehicle was ready. He then proceeded to explain the issue my a/c was having and what he did to repair. He then directed me to the friendly secretary Regina to check out. After purchasing the services I proceeded to leave and Regina & Hazel kindly said the good-bye as Mr. Watson approached me entering my vehicle he stated to me that if I have any further problems with the air conditioning to feel free to stop by and he would take a look for me. This was such an awesome experience for me and the customer service was above and beyond that of any other repair shop I have utilized in the city of Griffin!!! Awesome people & outstanding atmosphere to be in!!!! :) all smile!!

I bought a used car from a used car lot in Griffin ga and it was supposed to come with a warranty but the people lied. So I took my car here and they took real good care of me. If you want to get a price and not bee over charged at a shop, I recommend going here.

Did not recommend repairs that I did not already know needed done. Explained clearly what costs were for parts and offered lower cost options. (The costs for the parts were in-line with the research I did.) Accommodation of my schedule.

The only place I will take my vehicles from now on. Other places kept saying something was wrong and when they fix that they said something else was wrong too. This place found out exactly what was wrong and fixed it the first time!

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.
