Family owned- great place. Honest, reliable, and fair. They really care about their customers. They do great work at a fair price and fix what needs to be fixed (they don't try and talk you into fixing things that aren't broken). Also- the father and son are volunteer firefighters who sponsor several young softball teams... its really fun to support a family owned business that supports their community! They have 2 large dogs that are so sweet- they are blocked off from entering the lobby where a customer would be by a baby gate so there is no physical contact with the dogs.

Paul the owner is the only mechanic I will ever go to. If it's a quick easy fix there will be no charge and it is a franchise so it isn't the cheapest place around but if you're not rich or no nothing about cars he's honest about what needs to be done, what can wait and is a fair upstanding guy along with all his employees never had anything he couldn't fix and he's always worked with me financially. Unless you can do it yourself go see paul.

Honest, reliable, dependable, and fair. What more can you ask for in an auto service company? I've been to my fair share of auto repair shops and usually walk out feeling like I just got cheated or duped.... I always feel really good about their work and good about what I had done when I leave sm1th imports.

Took my car in because the a/c stopped working in the summer. They fixed the issue, however the issue recurred the next week. I took it in and they found another problem and fixed it for free because I had to come back a 2nd time. I was shocked that they didn't stick me with another bill!

Their 20# propane tank refill price is only $17.71+sales tax. And you also get the full 20 pounds of propane verses most exchange tanks that only give you 15 pounds of propane or 75% of what the tank can legally hold.

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.
