Travelling from Arizona to Minnesota we broke down in Las Vegas NM. We happened to meet Michael at the nearby Taco Bell, we mentioned our car trouble and a local family highly recommend him. Knowing we were in a hurry and our vacation time was ticking away he started working first thing Sunday morning. He had us back on the on Monday. He was a good judge in character and trusted us to pay him the next day since his wife was sick, and couldn't give us an estimate. He went above and beyond to save our vacation. We highly recommend his services.Thanks Michael!Gabriel, Tim, and Nancy Jones

On March 23, 2015, travelling from Colorado to Arizona, I stopped in Las Vegas to get gas and my clutch was gone! I contacted 3 auto shops in Las Vegas and 2 responded. Michael was the only shop that could help. I have never met such amazing, talented mechanics. The employees & owners went above & beyond in getting me back on the road. Beautiful shop, friendliest people, and turned a bummer road trip into an AWESOME adventure. Thank you so much Michael, Melissa, Gerald, Jesse, and those of you that got my POS Suzuki Forenza on the road!! Respectfully, Kathy David

This guy is unbelievable! Best Auto experience I have ever had! I broke down out of town on Good Friday, everyone was closed. Billy recommended a Tow and reopened his shop to take care of me. He worked on Saturday and on Easter Sunday, just to make sure I was back on the Road. Billy does excellent work and is a great person to deal with.

My car broke down on 11/18/2016 in route to Colorado Springs.Not knowing any one or what was wrong with the car I got a tow from a local company to Daniel's Autotech. Within 2 hrs they had me back on the road. My car is a 1965 Plymouth Barracuda and they were able to locate all of the parts and have them delivered.Wonderful experience
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.
