Furr Auto Service
My family and friends have been going here for years. They will be honest with you if it's something that you can fix yourself. I myself have been told three or four times that it was an easy fix I could do on my own! Even explained how to do so. When they have had to fix things on my vehicles they do it RIGHT and very quick. They were fair priced every time. You can't go wrong taking your vehicle here. These old timers are the best and I won't take my vehicles anywhere else. It used to be VERY scary when I needed repairs done BEFORE I was told about Furr's. Now I have no worries about being taken advantage of by mechanics. Just give them a try when you need help. Go get a quote from them and then shop around for better prices. Probably won't find any because most of them will tell you something else is wrong besides the "original problem". I couldn't believe that I'm the first person to write a review. But then again I would come to the conclusion that most of their loyal customers probably don't use the internet. My grandfather was who told me all about Furr's. It's just a small building and not really advertised. I'm starting this word of mouth for them because I feel it's the least I can do. Saved my family and friends lots of time, money, and needless worry over the years. I'll always be a loyal customer and tell other people about Furr's. You will too I'm positive.

Lowder's Automotive Inc.
A Very Honest and Reputable Auto Repair Shop:Our daughter got a second opinion from Lowder's about a $600 brake job that another shop said she needed, because they said the brakes were worn out. Lowder's said that the brakes were almost new, and only charged a very nominal fee to clean the brakes while they inspected that they were fine, So they saved our daughter almost $600! So we know that Lowder's will only quote work that your car really needs. We are fortunate to have an honest mechanic in our state, and it is great to know that Lowder's is another mechanic that has a perfect level of integrity, also. We and our daughter recommend them to everyone in the Kalamazoo area, if you want to have your vehicle repaired honestly, for a real problem, at a fair price!

Chapman Automotive
I have used Chapman Automotive for over ten years for all of my families automobile repairs and maintenance. I have found them to be reasonable, honest, and very professional. There is never any surprises when you deal with them. They give you a thorough explanation of the work that is to be accomplished and timely delivery of my vehicles when they are completed. The cost is always discussed before the work is began and I have never had any additional hidden costs. I would recommend them highly to anyone who is looking for reliable, economical service for their cars and trucks.

Lentz USA
My alternator went out in my car on my day off. Not only did lentz get me in that day but they were kind enough to get it fixed so I could go to work the next day. The amazing man (Phillip) that work on my car not only did a great job but offered to stay after hours till it was done with no complaints!! I would highly recommend to take your car here and ask for Phillip he is not only an awesome mechanic but has amazing customer service skills!!!

ATTENTION, College Students and parents of College students away from home, DO NOT HESITATE to have your car repaired with these guys. They were very honest and the price was right. I had my daughters car fixed here. They could have taken advantage of the situation but gave an honest and fair service. I should know, I am a mechanic too,... but live too far away to do it myself. BTW: They did not know about my skills prior to their diagnosis.

My son attends WMU and had some major car problems while living in Kalamazoo. I arranged all the repair details over the phone from Lansing. They replaced an engine for us and almost a year later we had transmission problems. They discovered that our transmission problem was just low fluid. Their honesty and dependability was amazing. If you are looking for a mechanic that will be honest and affordable then this is the place to use.

Dyer Auto Body
The folks at Dyer Auto Body were fabulous and helped us out with our Dodge/Mercedes/Freightliner Sprinter van when we were in desperate need while visiting Kalamazoo. The dealerships in the area were completely unhelpful to us and would not even try to help with a window that had gone off-track. Dyer's took us in immediately and got the problem solved within the hour so that we could get back on the road and get home.THANK YOU!!

Full Service Auto Repair
I stumbled onto Rico an Lisa's Full Service Auto Repair kind of by accident, and I'm glad I did. like some other reviewers, I never have to question his work. I used to wrench on my own cars, but at 68 I don't have the ambition anymore. I generally know what has to be done, but I don't have the ambition (or the expertise any more...) but Rico always does. Top notch shop, friendly, informative and quick.

Finally I have found someone I can trust. I have been trading with these guys at Louder’s for the last 8 years. I’ve had at least 10 different used cars between my wife, 4 adult children and myself. Louder’s always give me a square deal, great repair and price. Often Bob has recommended no repair when another shops, I'm sure, would have taken advantage of me.

Parchment Collision Ctr
I had damage to my SUV from 2 separate accidents...both ends of my car...2 separate insurance claims. All work was done promptly...insurance work coordinated smoothly. The whole process was explained and I was kept informed on the progress while my car was in the shop. Excellent work! My car looks great! I highly recommend Parchment Collision.
Tips & Advices
Using a variety of tools and processes, many of which require specialized training, auto body mechanics primarily repair cosmetic and structural damage to vehicles after accidents occur. They can also enhance a vehicle’s appearance and performance by replacing and adding new parts to a vehicle’s body.
This depends on the severity of the work that needs to be done. Something such as paintless dent repair for a few small dents can take an hour. Whereas auto body repairs for damages caused by a major accident can take multiple days to correct.
All auto body parts can be repaired but there is a threshold for the level of repairs possible. Parts can be damaged beyond repair and would need to be wholly replaced.
Auto body parts can be made from a wide variety of materials, usually based on what the part’s purpose is. Vehicle frames body panels, bumpers, roof racks, and other items that need to be strong and durable are usually constructed from steel, which is known for its durability and resistance to rust and high temperatures. But aluminum is quickly becoming a popular material of construction due to its lightweight yet durable nature. Body kits and other aftermarket parts like spoilers and hoods can be constructed from one form of plastic or another.
Yes, the vast majority of car makes and models have aftermarket parts available for many of their components. But higher-end vehicles typically have less aftermarket parts available since they often use specialized materials and manufacturing processes that are difficult to duplicate for many aftermarket manufacturers.
