Bourque's Auto Repair
VERY UNPROFESSIONAL!! Not happy with service or work, sent my mothers vehicle there because it was running hot, they keep car for one day and said it was the engine block that was not filled correctly after i changed thermostat myself, CAR Runs Hot The NEXT DAY and leaking coolant after Bourque's Auto said it was fixed!! charged over $100 to put fluids in engine block. sent car back so he can fix the real problem, (tired to give them a chance to earn our business back) This time around he says its the radiator and its going to cost over $500 to fix. My mother ask him a few questions like how he didnt see that before? wondering if he knows for sure if its the radiator? what if he changes the radiator and its still runs hot, what else could it be? she cant afford to keep changing out parts and problem is still not fix.. He gets on phone and tells my mother "SHE CAN COME PICK UP HER CAR! HE DOES NOT WANT TO WORK ON IT!!" after it had been to his shop for 5 Days.. We paid and had the car towed there both times! $$ down the drain. HE REFUSED TO WORK ON CAR BECAUSE MY MOTHER ASK QUESTIONS ABOUT HIS WORK!! HE HAD UGLY WAYS OVER PHONE CONVERSATION! I WILL NEVER BRING ANY BUSINESS THERE AGAIN!! I ONLY PUT ONE STAR BECAUSE IT IS REQUIRED TO LEAVE POST, OTHER WISE THERE WOIULD BE ZERO STARS!!

My teenagers went without me to have their car fixed. They replaced a sensor for $500 and the issue wasn't resolved. Then they said that the spedometer needed to be replaced. I told them to get a second opinion. It seems like they replaced the wrong sensor.When I called to discuss it, he refused to accept any responsibility -- I didn't want a full refund, but maybe just his profit? But he said he would never replace the wrong thing. So he did the wrong thing AND gave us bad customer service. Will not return. Try Midas across the street -- I have received great customer service from them.

I had the owner mike work on a 2004 chevy truck. It seemed to be a simple job but he had my vehicle for over 3 weeks!! Then once he finally finished for me to pick it up the problem still remained. I brought the vehicle back and he asked me to drop it off again. Once again it took 3 weeks. Guess what the problem still was fixed so once again he took my truck again for a third time. This was his last chance and 2 weeks later I picked up my truck and can u believe still not fixed correctly. So the point of the story is I would definitely not recommend this shop to anyone looking for a mechanic that knows what he is doing. Worst mechanic in Lafayette!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Very professional staff! Called for a rotate & balance and they were able to provide same day service. Prior to technician taking my truck into the shop he met with me to see if I was having any issues/problems with the tires. During the service the technician asked for me to go into shop so he could explain the problem that he found and was able to resolve. Truck was shaking at 45 & 74 prior to service but is now resolved. Very satisfied with the attention to detail and customer service provided!
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.
