Manny Auto Repair
When I needed work done on my S10, I asked around and heard about how great Manny's is. They provided me with precise and detailed information in regards to the repair of the ball joints on my S10. On top of getting a honest evaluation, I got a great price. So.... When I was ready to buy a second vehicle(a used Saturn Vue, which was making a little noise) I took it to Manny's to have it inspected before I made the purchase. They gave me estimates for the repairs, which were in my price range, so bought the vehicle. I immediately took it back to Manny's and had a broken bolt holding the exhaust pipe fixed, a water pump replaced, and had a new timing belt put in. Not only did they do an EXCEPTIONAL JOB in a timely manner, they charged me less then the original estimate. They've also fixed my tire and air them for me as needed.... I really appreciate it all! Businesses like Manny's make Loves Park a great place to live.

George Sparkman Auto Repair And Auto Sales
I have recommended this shop to several people and they have all been pleased with the service they have received. I do not live in the area of the shop but make the arrangements to my schedule to get over there due to George treating you like family. Our truck broke down and we had it towed in. It was like 30 below with wind chill and George disconnected the battery and installed in that kind of weather. He then moved the truck inside to make sure everything was secure and to make sure there was nothing else wrong with the truck. I have had several vehicles in the shop for different reasons and have always left happy knowing my car was fixed to my expectations or better. The Sparkman shop treats everyone who walks thru their doors like family.

These are the nicest people, who will move heaven and earth to help you with your service needs. A small local garage with a long history in Loves Park. Very accomodating. Good service... highly recommend them.
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.
