The Garage Tire & Auto Care
went here first time and was very pleased with the service. I went to get an alignment and was told up front that if they were not able to complete alignment because if something needed parts that the money I paid for inspection will go towards alignment after it gets fixed with them or where ever else I chose. Turns out they were able to align it and nothing need parts. So I brought in my other car which is a bit older and that one needed parts and I fixed it at home since Ididnt have the money to fix it there and brought it back to complete alignment. Plus I like that they have a shuttle to drop me off and pick me up. Veyr informative and courteous. Will continue doing business with them.

The Garage Tire & Auto Care
I have taken a Mazda pickup, and a Mazda 6 sedan to The Garage Tire & Auto repair for various repairs or services over the last three months. The pickup required a near total front end rebuild, alignment and tires. The sedan had the motor mounts replaced. I am a totally satisfied customer. The Garage staff are friendly and dedicated to solving your auto problems. The prices at The Garage are competitive for both parts and labor. I now have my favorite Garage to take my vehicles to, I recommend that you give them a try.

Sears Auto Center
I have lived in Hanford for 8 years and always have had great service from Sears Auto Center. The line is sometimes long so you may want to plan on a long wait when dropping your car off on a Saturday morning. During the week you can make an appointment.They have a great deal on tires and you can go to any Sears Autocenter to have your rotate you tires when needed.

Oil Butler
April Fools Day we were stranded at the Hwy 99 rest stop 5 miles south of Kingsburg with a truck pulling a 5th when the truck would not start. Mobil Maid diagnosed the problem, ordered a replacement starter and installed the next morning. The driver and mechanic were helpful, attentive and professional and I would highly recommend their service.

Lavine's Smog Tune & Auto Repair
I have taken my various vehicles there for years and really enjoy the service and honest explanation of the work. The owner can be a little eccentric, but a genuinely nice person. The prices are good and I have always had a positive experience...

I was very pleased with the price and the thorough service. I already knew I needed new shocks and they pointed it out to me. Never pushing the repair or sale of a shock, but mentioning it as a courtesy. I appreciate that attention to detail!

Kenshi Auto Repair
This is the best auto repair I have ever found, not only the quality, but how customer oriented they are. Kenshi will go the extra mile to help the customer, extremely friendly, reliable, good attitude. I recommend this place to everyone.

I am very happy with this place. They did not try to sell me the most expensive set of tires they had. Instead they asked me what my budget was and then helped me from there. Great job!

I taken my cars to Lavine's since the 90's and have never had a problem. They've always been helpful and kept me informed if my car needed repairs. A reasonable and honest shop.

Superior worked on the suspension and replaced the tires on my car. It really does make a huge difference when everything is new again! I'm glad I chose them to do the work!
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.
