Was optimistic after reading other reviews, the owners seem like nice people and I'm always eager to support local businesses. However, I was unpleasantly surprised when I picked up my vehicle and the bill was significantly more than anticipated. Communication about estimated hours charged was not clearly communicated as the work grew. I should have been adamant about requiring a detailed estimate before approving additional work. It was fortunate that it needed an alignment right away as a break caliper was not reinstalled (caliper mounting bolts were left loose), but the alignment tech discovered it before I drove around with it. I hope this is just growing pains with a new business and they can figure out how to manage estimates, workflow, etc. If you're on your last dime fixing your vehicle, be careful.

Took my VW to Mike. He did a great job!!! I priced out repair work with 4 other repair places b-4 taking to Mike. He saved me over $300 from what others wanted to charge for the same kind of work. I took car in for him to work on and within 24 hours he had called me back to say car was done. Everyone else would have had the car for the same amount of time and still charge me alot more than Mike. He is a down to earth guy. Ask him questions and you will get an honest answer. No more dealerships and their UNGODLY rates for me. Mike will get all of my future business!!!

I took my Toyota 4runner in for an issue with a bearing noise. They quickly diagnosed the issue and quoted me a reasonable price for the work needed. Josh was awesome to work with and it is apparent that he values honesty and doing the job right. I used to go to the dealer, but not any more after coming to Higher Standards! I've found my new repair shop I can count on for all my future needs!

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.
