Garfield Auto Repairs
Dont let the building fool you, the mechanics at garfield auto are outstanding! Had my 2006 audi a6 allroad in there to get my transmission replaced that was diagnosed by another shop but heard they did a good job for a fraction of the cost. Was told it would cost $800 parts and labor, $400 less than other shops were quoting me! After they had ordered the transmission (used with warranty) i watched Lieu change it out throughout the day and was back on the road later that evening. 6 months now, still running strong. Will recommend this shop to everyone i know. Keep up the good work!

Monte's Auto Repair
I have used Monte's Auto for three of my vehicles, all different makes. Oil changes, tire rotations, brakes, wiring issues, and more. Each time they explain what they found and recommended solutions for any current repairs needed as well as preventing anything hazardous down the road. I never felt like I was being sold something. The professionalism and friendliness is the best I have experienced in the auto repair services. Thank you Monte's Auto!

Four Star Auto Service Inc
I recently took my vehicle there for a minor repair. Four Star Auto was fast, friendly, and it was much less than I expected, they have a low hourly labor rate. I have since recommended them to several of my friends who have been taking their vehicles elsewhere and getting charged much more for subpar work.It is also convenient for me that they are located right on the light rail route so I have a mode of transportation when I drop my vehicle there.

These guys are AMAZING!! I had to have my car unexpectedly towed, and they showed up within 5 minutes. I had issues with the dealership the car was towed to, and the driver actually loaded my car back on the trailer for me and towed to their place of business to fix my car. The driver was WAY MORE HELPFUL to me than the dealership I bought the car from! Him and his company just earned my ongoing business :) I highly recommend them!!

Precision Tune Auto Care
Friendly helpful and honest staff that always go above and beyond to help with our repair needs. They turn difficult problems into real solutions and always go the extra mile without asking. Rob and Will are always willing to help answer questions and explain everything in terms even a "car dummy" like me can understand. I know that I am always in good hands when I come to the Edina PT and that I am not being ripped off.

I had a terrific experience with Plymouth Automotive. My car unexpectedly died downtown late on a holiday weekend. Within 40 minutes they were there and towed my car to a dealership. They took care of all the details of the drop while I got my daughter home to bed. They texted me and kept me updated during the process. Fantastic customer service!

Car-X Tire & Auto
I got there a little early, and they got me in right away. James was very friendly. I wasn't sure if I needed my tires balanced or if the dealership had done any other maintenance, so they offered to test one tire first. I was in and out of there in no time. Overall cost was very fair. Will definitely bring my car back for the next servicing.

Midas Auto Service Experts
When you find a business and mechanics that operate honestly, fairly and thoroughly, it makes one feel like you have won the lotto. Well, I did when I found this group. They were recommended to me by my brother about a dozen years ago and over the course of those years they have worked on four of my cars, always accurately. And kindly.

Jessie's Auto Body
I would recommend Jessie’s Auto Body for any auto collision work, they were timely and the most affordable auto body shop I was able to locate near Saint Anthony village. They even detailed the interior of my car before I came in to pick it up. They also do some really great looking classics and street rods. Thanks Jessie!

Volkswagen Man
I brought my Audi in i told them I thought the turbo bearings were going and I needed a new wiper motor, turned out it was a minor problem and I didn't need a new wiper motor, they had it fixed the same day and the man behind the counter was extremely friendly. They will be my go to shop from now on.
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.
