My good friends are quite elderly, and work hard to do things most of us take for granted. Their truck required repairs that would ensure that they'd be safe when traveling. They'd had good experiences with Sam's in the past, and decided to put their safety in Sam's expertise. It would have been very difficult for them to get the truck to Sam's shop, so Sam and his wife kindly drove the truck to and back from the shop for them....without charge, and without my friends even having to ask! In these troubled times it's refreshing to find that there are still good folks who go out of their way to help others!

Coleman Auto Repair
Coleman's Automotive in Middleburg was recommended by a friend to change the engine on my son's 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe. Parts are very hard to come by and have to be ordered from the factory in Korea. Coleman's communication and professionalism were exceptional, their quality of work unparalleled and they saved me several thousand dollars with this repair. This family-owned business provides outstanding customer service an old fashioned values. They are my new automotive shop

They focus on easier vehicles where they can get paid and don't seem to care about mine much in favor of newer ones, they are courteous knowledgeable but can get overwhelmed wit only Sam and one helper and a lot of vehicles to repair. Sam did help on one area but then got busy again so when I called two times now I just get a female voice message .

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.
