Mike's Service Center
Used to love and recommend this place frequently.. Times have changed!1st strike: I had a vehicle I was about to have $500-600 worth of stuff done to it. But they nor the dealership wanted to fix a suspension squeak and they basically told me to go somewhere else. So I traded in that vehicle on a new one and they lost that money. 2nd strike: I had another vehilce in for something and told them I thought I needed new brakes. They called and said $324 for new front brake job. I got to the shop and scheduled that service even though it seemed a bit high. I got home and looked at my reciept they stuck on a $22.50 fee for the pleasure of telling me I needed to give them $324 for brakes. 3rd strike had this vehicle for 5years 60k miles and NEVER had a check engine light. Within 5 miles from driving away from their shop.. Check Engine Light. I called and asked for a Manager to discuss the fee and light and they said tough crap on the fee and completely ignored and didn't say one thing about the check engine light. POOR customer service Wayne. But maybe I should thank him.. I'll pay the 22.50..but now i'll pay 125ish for the brake job somewhere else and they won't get my $324, no future business from me, no future referrals and I'll post this where I can so that eveyone knows the Reputable, Laid back, Honest. Repair shop that this used to be is GONE. Oh and at the end of the call.. He mumbled something about the owner should be handling this and HUNG UP. wow.. I really expected more. Shocked and Appalled. But oh well....

Mobile Auto Repair
Jerry changed my brakes in the Summer of 2011, so when my car said it was time to flush the brake fluid I knew exactly who to call.Here's why I chose Brake Repair Specialist again:- Jerry is punctual, honest, incredibly competent and professional.- The mobile service is great. I got in touch with him this morning, he said he had a job in my area, so he came by my office this afternoon. Within an hour or so the job was complete and I didn't have to go out of my way at all.- He explains what he did and why. Jerry showed me the products he used, why he used those, and explained the process and implications of the alternatives.- Prices are comparable to, if not better than, the dealership/service station. I compared the brake job and the fluid flush to local businesses and his quote won. Plus when you factor in the convenience and great service it is a no-brainer. - I always feel a bit uncertain when technicians tell me I need to have all these expensive processes done. At the same time it's daunting to think I might bypass something that actually must be done. I trust Jerry's recommendations for the sheer fact he has told me when and why I do NOT need to have a service done, even when he could have made an extra $600 on the job. Without a doubt I will continue to use Brake Repair Specialist for anything brake related, and very highly recommend Jerry's work!

Kwik Kar Automotive
Kwik Kar is THE GREATEST!! I recently moved from the Northland to South KC. I was quickly approaching the date in which I needed to get my tags renewed on my car. I called Kwik Kar on a Monday morning and asked for an appointment that day as early as possible for an inspection and to get my tire patched. They were so nice and told me 10:30 was the earliest (while apologizing that there wasn't something sooner.) I was more than thrilled. I got some errands done that morning and showed up at 10:15 for my appointment. Knowing I was early and they looked quite busy I anticipated a wait time of about an hour to an hour and 30 min. I was IN AND OUT in under 45 min.While I was in the waiting area I was speaking with a gentleman who had been taking his car there for 6 years. It's so nice to know there are still QUALITY companies providing QUALITY customer service. I will absolutely continue to take my car here even though I have to drive the extra 30+ minutes to get there. They have 100% earned my business and I'm VERY picky when it comes to my car.

Bill & Larry's Auto Service
I've gone to Bill & Larry's for years. I always get excellent service and the service employees are extremely experienced. It's the only place in the Northland that I recommend. The price is way better than any other mechanic shops around and whenever I needed to take my vehicle in, I always get a follow up call with a price estimate and they explain exactly what needs to be fixed and they give me a breakdown of what the parts will cost and an estimate of the service job depending on what they have to do to me car. Larry and all of his mechanics are extremely hospitable and always provide friendly service. I've not once had a bad experience there and I absolutely cannot state that about any other places. If you're ever in need of maintenance or need something fixed to any of your vehicles. This is the place I recommend to my friends and family and I will keep doing that for numerous reasons!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

V & N Auto Repair
I recently took our Nissan Sentra to V & N Auto repair to have new front disc brakes installed. I had them get the parts and install them.I came here on a referral from my neighbor, so this was my first time here.The owners wife speaks English the best and her and husband are honest and trustworthy.Because I am so happy with them and their work, I then took our Saturn there. I bought the parts, a new water pump and a new A/C compressor/drier/expansion device/ freon/antifreeze and they installed everything perfectly.I could not ask for more. Every person I spoke with while I was there all said the same thing. They always bring their cars here and would never go elsewhere.The place looks a bit cluttered but they are great.I fully recommend V & N Auto repair at 2820 Independence Ave, Kansas City, MO 64124Phone:(816) 241-6868They saved me $969 over the exact same repairs that Midas gave me a written quote for.

Dr. Dent of Gladstone
I highly recommend this shop for door dings or hail damage. I was skeptical went I went. He discussed what he thought could be done and told me what couldn't be done. He was very honest and even suggested body shops that I know do good jobs if I wanted to repaint the whole door for some dings. He was very timely with fixing it and the work was unbelievable on my 2011 Camaro. You couldn't even tell there were down to the metal door dings on my door. Not only that, but he went above and beyond what we discussed. He went ahead and fixed a ding on my other door that we didn't discuss and he fixed some chemical residue from under my radio display. Never asked for a dime more than he quoted me. He was so professional and went above and beyond to make sure I was satisfied. Now I call that customer service. He was also very well priced for everything he had to do. Would recommend to any and everyone.

Troostwood Garage & Body Inc
Ok, my wife took our 2nd car up to Troostwood body shop to get an inspection. Young man told my wife that he was doing her a favor by passing it. He said the all four brakes needed to be replaced and our alternator needed to be replaced (not sure what an alternator has to do with an inspection?). I took all the wheels off, not only did nothing need to be done with the brakes. They were in perfect condition! My whole family has taken their cars to this garage for years and we have all decided that after about 2 or 3 of these types of incidents. We can no longer trust Troostwood with any more of our vehicles. This place used to be the best garage in the city and has turned into a racket. I put 2 stars because there was a time where I would suggest them to friends. But them and Muffler Doctor on Troost are in it together to gouge you for every cent, and then some. So sad!

Wornall Automotive
Wornall Automotive is probably the best shop I've ever received service from. The staff is wonderful - friendly, honest, and more than helpful! I've only gone in there twice for my car, but unless I'm doing the work myself, I will always choose to take my car to them. They replaced my fuel pump with a respectable price. They kept me updated while they were holding my car at the shop every day. The shuttle service is very appreciated! It was nice being able to drop my car off before work and then get a ride from the shop. My second trip was for my fuel gauge; it had stopped working. Thanks to the wonderful warranty from replacing the fuel pump, I was able to get that fixed up for free! :D Thank you so much, again! I will always choose this shop over any other in Kansas City.

Calvert's Express Auto Service & Tire
Oil change (got a $14 coupon in the mail). In addition to the oil change, I had a "check tire" light and they found a screw in one of my tires. They patched it and all for $35 and I was in and out in less than 45 minutes and this was a Friday morning before a holiday weekend. I was told by other shops in the area that I couldn't make a reservation and wait for my vehicle because of the holiday rush (Memorial Day Weekend). Everybody was getting their vehicles road-trip ready (I guess).I was greeted promptly and very, very professional staff that explained everything to me. I was expecting a mechanic to come out and tell me he found 'other maintenance things to fix' (as so many shops do). They did NOT and I'm glad, I just want in and out.HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS SHOP.

Wornall Automotive
Finding a trustworthy mechanic is a really tough proposition in today's world. Luckily there are business like Wornall Automotive to change the story. Ryan and Mark are professional, straightforward and welcoming as can be. The shop itself is clean and comfortable. Every time I go in someone greets me immediately, no long waits to see if someone is actually going to come to the front desk like in some places. I know that any time I need to bring my car in, they will not only take care of my car, but they will also take care of me as well. I've been impressed with this place for two years now since I found out about it. Do yourself a favor and stop your search for that trustworthy mechanic you can turn to...they're right here at Wornall Auto waiting for you!
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.
