Frontline Automotive
Frontline Automotive is the place everyone should go to for their auto repairs. If it is just to get an oil change or having a new water pump installed these guy's are the best. They are extremely knowledgeable, professional and prompt. We have been going there for years and we have always been satisfied. We never ever felt ripped off. Jim and Chris know what they are doing and we trust them with all our auto repairs. Thank you Jim and Chris for always taking care of our cars!

Busy shop but fast service, excellent pricing and very good repairs. They worked on my 2002 Toyota with multiple engine issues. One day later it's running like new.

Butch's Auto Service
Butch's is the place I've taken my cars for over 20 years. Joe (and Butch until he retired -Joe was his understudy) always do a great job for a fair price, and he delivers the repaired vehicle on schedule -no song and dance. He considers the cost-effectiveness of your problem and how far a temporary patch might get you if you don't want to do the full fix. He knows right away if your problem is something he's equipped to do, and if not, he refers you to the right place to deal with it. I was sold on them many years ago when Butch called me up to tell me he'd found a billing error from several months before and he wanted to refund forty dollars to me.

B & B Auto
I brought in a 2000 Jeep Cherokee 4x4 stock.I bought a lift kit from JC Whitney and 33" tires from Tire Rack.Phil put in a whole 8 hours installing these on my new baby.He took the time to show the troubles encounter from the old rusty parts, etc.It was done and picked up next day. In addition, the cost was about 1/2 of the price other places do the same work. If B&B can handle my complex suspension lift kit, etc, I will trust them with my brakes, tune ups, etc..
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.
