Since moving to florida have used this shop several times. My Dad is a mechanic in iowa for 30 years, so I have very high expectations. Although I like my dads prices better {: I find the guys here to be very knowledge and have always done a very good job for us. And the owners have been beyond friendly with us and recognize us when we come in. Would recommend...now 2 weeks after my review... I also want to add that I trust them. Which is major in todays world!!!. my daughters car broke down. we pushed it to a shop that was close. They told me to contact insurance needed major repair at a cost of 1,800. several parts (ouch to me with no full coverage) so we towed it home. Straightened a bar she had bent and drove it to "our guys" here. Guess what it didn't need the stuff they said. My total cost 1/10 the price. AND that was for a oil change and brakes!! Cost nothing for the damage they claimed I had. Thank you for being fair and honest guys!

Great shop and CLEAN!! I took my car there and they were honest about the work needed and the owners Amy and Mario are great to do business with. I have a mechanic for life!! They been in business here for a long time and were very competitive in there pricing compared to other shops. The work done is here is way better than other shops in town. Clean shop to, other shops are dirty and makes you wonder how they will take care of your car, you know they will take care of your car if they take care of their shop! Parts charged for were installed and done correctly no false work here!! I recommend this shop to others. I have been a customer now for about 6 years and always the same experience every time I go there!

My slave cylinder went out on my Hondai Sonata and everywhere I went immediately said $2600 to $3800 to get it fixed. I took it to Old Fashioned Auto and they actually took the time to shop around to find the best price for the parts for repair. No one else would do that. They got it fixed and save me a lot of money. Way less than $2600. I loved working with the knowledge, experience, professionalism, and family oriented people. Keep up the great work guys....You all really know how to run a business and make each customer feel like they are important. I'm definitely a customer for life now, Brian C.

My fellow americans just a few words for the boys at Daves professional auto mechanics. My experience was totally awesome. I talked with Dave about my problem he had agreed to put my vehicle on his analyzer. by the time I drove around the rear of the establishment to an empty bay, one of the guys (I apologize for not remembering his name) was there waiting to attach the computer to the outlet and diagnose the problem. after a minute or so I was informed about my need of a coil pac something fairly simple. Gotta say the language was definitely colorful and it was a great experience. I will return for sure

It has been a pleasure having Aldo and Brandon work on my Buick Lasabre. It is hard to find honest mechanics and at All About Cars I finally found them. Very professional and detailed. I have had new tires installed, brakes changed and a few oil changes. I highly recommend this shop. Maria

Tips & Advices
With the proper maintenance and adherence to driving within in the guidelines of engine performance designations, remanufactured engines can last 100,000 miles or more. With modern technology, engine lifespans have dramatically increased over the years. It is not uncommon for engines to last 200,000- 300,000 miles, or more--before a rebuild or remanufacture is even necessary.
While remanufactured and crate engines are very similar, there are several key differences. The biggest difference is that crate engines are as close to new as possible, without actually being new. Everything internal is replaced, which is not always the case with a remanufactured engine. Second, crate engines do not have to meet factory original specs. Some are upgraded to high performance engines through specialty shops. Crate engines are ready for immediate installation. These factors tend to make their price point higher than for a remanufactured engine. Adherence to factory specs is the biggest difference; remanufactured engines are required to (with some exceptions), crate motors are not.
Remanufactured engines nearly always come with a warranty. There may be exceptions, so it is important to learn the specifics of the auto shop. There is no reason for a shop to not offer a warranty on what is basically a new engine. While not getting a warranty would be rare, confirm the engine comes with a warranty prior to making any commitment.
All gasoline and diesel engines, with some exceptions, are eligible to be remanufactured. Old, rare and out-of-stock engines, engines with cracked or damaged blocks, and specialty engines are examples of engines that might not be eligible to be remanufactured. Also to be considered are parts availability and a mechanic’s knowledge of a particular engine.  Most modern and popular engines are eligible. Lower- end production and rare engines might require specialty shops that work in these areas.
The most commonly remanufactured engine is the inline four-cylinder gasoline engine. It is the most mass-produced engine in the world and is the primary power plant in the most popular cars in the world, like the Honda Civic, Volkswagen Golf, Toyota Corolla, and the Ford Focus. The next most common remanufactured engine is the straight, or “‘inline” six, a six cylinder that is a larger and more powerful engine popular in many smaller, light duty trucks, SUVs, and an engine option in the Toyota Camry. The popularity of these cars and these engines makes them the highest in demand for remanufacture.
