mrs Taylor why don't you tell the whole story.first of all the transmission you brought us to put back in was no good cause it was damaged during shipping.i told you i could rebuild yours for $850 parts and labor.that is why it was taking longer than promised.i also told you you would owe the balance of the trans removal and instalation.you stated two days later that you understood it to be $850 for everything.no shop would pull rebuild and reinstall a trans in a taurus.even with the install agreement we were still cheaper than all the transmission shops around.you told us to stop work so we did.the problem was on your end not ours.and i was the mechanic that you dealt with not the owner.i talked to you by phone and text.lets tell the story correctly if your going to tell it.

Ace Automotive Services
I almost always took my Dodge Ram and Mercedes to the dealer for everything until I discovered ACE Automotive. They were more than willing to troubleshoot an issue until they were able to fix the problem. I expected a 'dealership' cost for all the effort it took to find the problem but was given an extremely fair price along with the quality work. That was over 5 years ago and since then I won't take my vehicles anywhere else for service, maintenance or repair. Honest and quality work. Thank you!

This shop is top notch. They keep you informed of everything going on and they are fair with pricing very reasonable. The owner is one of the most honest men I have worked with. They have been working on our vehicles for years and my Son and his family, also works on my Daughters vehicles. They have gone out of their way for people. Seen it with my own eyes. I would recommend them to anyone They are the best at alignment. Thanks HW, JPI

Big Al's Mufflers & Brakes
After some confusion on the type of oil used in my oil change, I felt uncomfortable with even a small risk of running with the wrong oil. Despite being very confident that the correct oil was used, the manager offered to re-change my oil and was able to fit me in quickly on a busy weekend. I greatly appreciated the staff's dedication to making sure I was satisfied. They have definitely earned my future business!

Blizzards Auto Repair
These guys are excellent. They repaired my Mercedes Benz in the driveway in a matter o f minutes. Their mobile service is so much better than having the vehicle towed into a shop or dealership and waiting for hours/days. I highly recommend their service.

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.
