This is in response to cherokeelady21. It sounded like you were implying that they messed up your spark plugs when they changed your alternator. 1) the alternator has nothing to do with spark pluggs...when was the last time you had them changed? 2) some cars require the coil pacs to be changed when you replace the spark pluggs, otherwise you will run into more problems. As for your comment on the mechanics.....there are so many makes and models of vehicles around that it is impossible to know everything about every vehicle, sometimes you have to rely on an outside source to confirm on what is thought to be. My family and I have been taking our vehicles there for years and are very pleased with the work they do. Yes, every now and then it takes a little more to fix than what someone who doesn't know cars would think, but its something called troubleshooting. Look it up. And last of all, if you don't take care of your car, which is what i believe happened in your case, this is what will happen. I hope you learn from your mistake ma'am.

Best to schedule an apmt, but not necessary. They are under new management and things have gotten a lot better. They offer a rd hazzard warranty that's comoletely worth it if you're planning on going out of town at any time, because you can go to any of there locations or partner lications and have it honored. They offer really top of the line tires at competitive prices. These guys were really nice and knew what they were doing. People complain in other revuews because if the wait. But I'd rather have my car worked on well, then have some idiot rush. I had a quick tire chamge once somewhere else and 3 days later my tire blew an hour from home because they put it on wrong. Take the time to have it done right and have them check your car out for other stuff. They do it for free. At least I know my car is safe now and I can take my kids to the beach this summer without worry. Def recommend.

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.
