Gulf Coast Tire & Auto Repair
Friendly, family business. Will work with you on different situations. Won't lie/try to get you to fix or repair things that dont need it. Honest, and loyal. Taken my car to the dealership and they wanted me to pay a fortune to get something fixed, that Justin(owner) found online that it was under warrenty and the dealership didnt want to honor it and tried to argue with me. If you're in a bind with getting to and from work or whereever they will pick up your car, drop it off, or anything to make the process easier for you. My vehicle will be taken to Gulf Coast Tirea and Automotive from now on. I don't trust anyone else.

I am completely satisfied with the service I received today at Gulf Coast Tire and Automotive Repair. I was quoted a price for replacing my brakes and rotors at a competitor; I then called Gulf Coast and spoke to Justin Fadalla. He quoted me a much better price and was also much more professional. We then set up an appointment that was convenient for me. I was able to wait at the location for the repairs. During my wait, the staff made sure that I was comfortable. The company is by far the best repair shop in town. Knowing that the company is locally owned is an added bonus. I recommend Gulf Coast for auto repairs.

I brought a stereo for my son's 16th Birthday. The gave me an estimate over the phone of the price and time for installation. When I got there, they installed it in a timely manner for the estimated price and did not try to overcharge me. They were knowledgable about the stereo I had bought, even though I had bought it somewhere else. Professional, timely, reasonable price.

great at what they do, professional, knowledgeable. I made my appointment online, and they got right to my car. I was done within and hour. A lot of people criticize things they do not fully understand alot. I think people need to understand that when they take there vehicle to a mechanic, that they do not work for free. Quality & workmanship is what you are paying for.

This is the best Goodyear I've been to. I've had many car problems before and had to go in and get things fixed. I paid a lot less than I thought I was going to have to and the staff laid everything out for me in plain terms I could understand. I will not go to another service center for any problem only this Goodyear.

Took a used truck there that I was considering buying, and a mechanic looked it over, asked me thoughtful questions, went under the truck, gave me his opinion on whether I should buy it-- and then REFUSED to let me pay him. Solid guys here; almost a throwback to bygone days of honor and kindness.

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.
