They kept my car for 3 months to change out a motor in the mean time they back into my car said they will fix it..still waiting on that. However they never called to tell me about my car I found out when I showed up one day. Then after everything they ain't give me any insurance information. No one there knows how to run a business. It's horrible. They need to be shut down before they really hurt someone. But hey if you don't need your car for 6 months and you don't mind paying out the behind for a crappy job then this is the best place to go.

This is far the worst mechanic shop ever. They are so unorganized, they have the mechanic doing 50 things at once. Therefore you pretty much take a number and have a seat. They may or may not complete the task. They take no responsibility for their actions, damages, or mistakes. It seems as if they woke up one day and said I think I will open a mechanic shop, then the next day they wake up it's a tree service, the day after its a Gas Station. By which none of the businesses or the operators have a clue on how to run a business. I would not recommend these people to any one (not even the devil) Before you take your car here invest in some super glue and duct tape, it will be cheaper and a better fix.

Ward's Automotive Center
Kenny Ward;s Automotive replaced the engine and transmission in my Expedition. Both Kenny Ward and his Tech, Jake, were very professional, and courteous. Their work was exceptional. My car was returned on time, clean, and at a very competetive price. I highly recommend Kenny Ward's Automotive. Like his sign says "We Do It Right". Bill Carowick

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.
