1st choice auto care
First Choice Auto is the only place I will take my vehicle. By far the lowest labor rates in town. Go ahead and check. Very helpful. Will not do unnecessary work. If something unexpected needs to be addressed he will see to it that you understand why-before doing the work. Is very helpful in explaining the need for any type of work that must be done to fix the issue. Uses original parts for the make and model of the car, and will give you the option to use a more/less expensive part. Bub is a very nice, honest guy, who is very good at what he does. A local small business owner who is deserving of your business.

There is no better way to start the New Year then by finding an honest, dependable and professional auto mechanic and that would be 1st Choice Auto - by taking time to really diagnose the problem instead of just "fixing" something that wasn't it in the first place saved me hundreds of dollars. I have recommended 1st Choice to my friends and definitely will return for all auto repair in the future. Best price, best service. Thank you, Bub!

I had more than one car at graleys for fixing the body etc of the car and have always been impressed with the quality of their work as well as their professionalism and high degree of customer service. Thank you graleys. And more times I have had several cars in to be detailed and again excellent work. Thanks especially Thomas and Scott for their work!!!

Bub has kept my cars, and company trucks on the road for years, It's not 1st choice, it's my only choice. I am so proud of him opening his own shop. Looking forward to this time next year to see how much his business has grown. :)Good Luck

1st Choice Auto is the best. Bub is awesome and so honest. He is upfront about any problem your car might have. I would highly recommend him to anyone. Bub is the best and most honest mechanic in the tri-state area.

It's hard to find a good mechanic that you can trust. A mechanic that will not take an advantage of you. Bryan is very good at what he does. Very reliable and gets things done quickly.

Great service and reasonable prices. I finally found an honest auto mechanic that knows his stuff. I will come here from now on.
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.
