Not worth your money horrible place to take your vehicle. Won't fix your vehicle after you payed for the job to be completely done then somehow blame you the costumer & say it wasn't their fault. So if you want the run around the back & forth & having to pay another shop to check what's going on with vehicle go right ahead take your vehicle here..

Shaun's American Service
Took car to have caliper put on. I supplied the part per his request and he charged me $100.00 to put it on. OUCH Also, it had an electrical issue. He said he replaced 3 fuses and charged another $100.00 OUCH again.... Plus it didn't fix the problem. the fuse blew the next day. Called him twice and only got his machine. He never returned my calls..... Also, he is on Combee nowto add to my previous post.. Shaun did call me back at 7am and left a rude message. He stated that he only charged me less then an hour to do a wire diagram (don't know what that is) and put in 3 fuses. Than he went on to say he charged me an hour for putting on one caliper and an hour to do wire diagram???? contradicts himself.I called him back and asked him what a wire diagram was? He preceded to tell me he didn't want my business and started cussing me out. Told me to F off a few times and threatened me when I questioned him. After he hung up on me I called back and asked him why he couldn't answer my questions he cussed at me some more and threatened to call the police. I checked with a few other repair shops and they stated that the time to replace ONE SIDE of a cars calipers is one hour. That is both tires not one. They also had no idea what he meant about a wire diagram. One said maybe he took an hour to draw a picture... LOLStay away from this guy

I do not know how this guy remains in business. I went there one day at 7:10 am. All of the bay doors were open. I assumed (albeit incorrectly) that he was open. I had just run over some sort of nasty screw in my passenger rear tire and was scared it would blow out my tire. I went in to talk to the guy who I saw sitting in the middle of the bays and asked him if he could fix my tire for me. He said "we don't open until 8". Really? I commute one hour to and from work every day and was petrified that I would have a blow out on the 33. He couldn't take 10 minutes and take a look at the tire and maybe sell me a tire!? I asked him what the hours of the shop were. He stated "8-4". Wow. "Are you open Saturdays?" "No." Obviously this guy must be independently wealthy since he turned work away. What if this was his mother, sister, wife or girlfriend with a leaky tire? He has no idea what business I could have brought to him if he had just been a little kind. Even if he couldn't do the work at 7:10 am, could he have pointed me in the direction of where I could get it fixed? What happened to common courtesy? He is in the service industry, right? So much for service and southern hospitality!

If you are a complete fool. Go ahead and shake Mike's hand. I can tell you from experience. He doesn't know what he is doing and will take complete advantage of you. Do yourself a favor. Pay a little extra to get the job done correctly.

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.
