Tony's Madera Auto Repair
Tony is a lifesaver. With our poor budget he was able to get our rv running same day. Low cost and gave us some pointers. I highly recommend him to all our friends and family even grandma. Hes thorough and trust worthy had to find old school experienced mechanics like tony these days.

Would highly recommend this fine auto repair shop! I have many clients I send to Casey and all have been very pleased. I learned of this fine auto repair shop by a good friend of mine, Big Bad John! Casey knows him well!

Ruben's Automotive
My wife and I were coming back from Yosemite on Monday Aug. 19th. Our A/C was blowing warm air. My wife found Joe and Ruben's on her phone and called them when we were about 10 minutes from Madera. Even though they were busy they took us anyway. Ruben was very nice, polite, and professional. He found the problem but was unable to get a hose and said he could have one made by a local machine shop. We didn't want to wait that long so he filled the A/C with Freon and did what he could to get us home to Gilroy. Their shop was very busy but he took the time to help us out while we were on our way home. I'd recommend their service to anyone. Thanks Ruben it was nice having A/C driving through the valley that day!

I used to drive a VW Beetle and they were the only people in town who would service it-- Always did a wonderful job, at a competitive rate. Now I drive a Ford, which can be serviced anywhere, but I still take it to Joe! Can't beat their friendliness and quick turnaround time.
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.
