I'm not big on writing reviews but this company sure deserves one. They treated me with such kindness and outstanding Customer Service. They didn't rush me or cut me off when I had questions about the repair of my car and did an amazing job on the issues I had. I highly recommend this Business for repair and services on your Vehicle!!

SUMMARY: 18 months ago, the owner promised something he couldn’t do for the price he quoted. Then the mechanic tried to replace a perfectly good transmission. I left, but it ended up costing me a $150 freight charge for returning transmission, $75 for a tow to Transmission Express, several hours of work doing research and dealing with parts vendors, 5 extra day being without a truck, and a lot of worry. DETAILS:The owner believed my Silverado probably had a bad transmission and said that he could rebuild it, but he didn’t ask if was a diesel Silverado, something he could only replace. He had phenomenal online ratings, and it appeared to be was an honest mistake, so I told him to go ahead and replace it. His mechanic then made a second big mistake, misdiagnosing it as a bad differential because of an error code without noticing that all the fluid drained from a hole in the bottom of the differential. He said the error code meant that the transmission was bad. I looked it up and it only said, “unable to shift”, and I easily found a discussion online with someone saying a bad differential could cause that.While discussing this with the mechanic, he said that I also had a bad lower oil gasket, which was expensive to replace, but because the transmission would be replaced, he would do it for something like $500 rather than several hundred more. I wanted to see how far he would go with this so I asked what he thought I should do. He began to argue in favor of replacing it, and I reminded him it was a high millage truck and said that I parked on gravel, and he got a little angry and said, “You just go ahead and tell me what you want me to do!” I said I wanted him to not accept deliver of the transmission coming in and let me tow it away. He seemed happy to be rid of it (and me), but to his credit he said he wouldn’t charge anything. I paid his standard diagnostic charge anyway. I understand why people like these guys. They’re personable, mostly honest, and they’ll tell you so. But this was something out of their league, and when the mechanic made a big mistake, he didn’t recognize or own it. Under other circumstances, I might use them for less complex problems if I lived closer, but not for something big that I couldn’t monitor.

Finish Master
By far the WORST place to fix your car. DO NOT leave your car here. A minor problem that can be fixed in 1, 2 days tops, will take over a month to fix. There is no manager in the store and the ladies who work inside are as useless as it gets - they claim the car will be ready 6–7 times, they’ll make you go to their office so that when you get there they’ll say “it’ll be ready tomorrow” and so on. The place lives on charging for parking space and so will stay with your car as much as possible in order to make more money. If you want to avoid a headache and actually value your time and car, DO NOT take it here. It should be ilegal to be this irrespectful and useless.

This place is really bad. new_2_miami review is spot on . At first I thought it was a good place but I actually stayed at the business and watched them . I took a Toyota Corolla there to get wheel bearings fixed and I noticed that they drove the car out 3 times and took quite awhile .It took like 3 hours for them to finish and the car and it still had the same problem. I took my car since my fuel pump wasn't working and the owner was extremely rude.They also put a starter on it and it was used remanufactured it caused all types of headaches for me. They have ASE certifications but that doesn't mean a thing when you do bad work intentionally they shouldn't be doing this to people . stay far away from this place .

Super fast. and, went straight to the issue and fixed within a couple of hours. We have used this repair shop twice through AAA and both times have been just great...
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.
