My 2006 BMW 525i began overheating for some odd reason...thinking it was the water pump. I was recommended to this place by a friend. Took it in and got it scanned on their $4500 scanner. Brandon, the mechanic, told me nothing was wrong with the car, besides a valve cover gasket leak that dripped onto the wires..probably causing shorts. They could have lied and say my water pump was out. Instead, Brandon suggested I bring the car in whenever I'm financially ready to fix the leak. Very honest people.

German Precision
German Precision motors has serviced my cars since 1988 and when Tony bought the company several years later, German Precision has been the only place I have taken my cars (first my 1984 240D) and now my three Mercedes...1985 SL (67,000mi.), 1995 E300D (287,000mi) and 1999 E300 Turbodiesel (156,000mi)..Since moving to Longview, TX, I still manage to get my cars to German Precision, Longview to get the very best caring service and at reasonable prices.Bruce Ackerman, Dallas

First shop I had a good experience getting my car fixed. I was quoted almost twice as much in a different shop. Plus they finished the job when they promised they would. Unlike other places.

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.
