We have taken our car there on several occasions. The last time we were very disappointed. They had performed the work but we still had a problem with what we had taken it there for in the first place. We were selling the car and wanted to ensure the new owner got a car that was completely fixed. WE called again to have it looked at and they finally fixed the problem. But we had to pay AGAIN! for the same thing they were supposed to have fixed in the first place. My husband let Vic's mechanic know he wasn't happy about that because it was the same work order. But didn't matter he had to pay. We will not go back because we think this was unacceptable, especially for a customer they knew very well.

The Go Too Transmission Shop!I had my 1994 Chevy P/U transmission repaired at A+ about a month ago. I did not want to write my review too soon, I needed to make sure that my repairs were going to last at least this long, and it has. The proscess was easy and almost painless. But the work was done right and in a timely manner. Thanks Guys!!!
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.
